First Lady Michelle Obama revealed to People on Wednesday, Jan. 15, that she has adjusted her workout regimen as she turns 50 this week.

"I'm seeing myself shift from weight-bearing stuff - even though that continues to be important - and the heavy cardio and running, to things like yoga that will keep me flexible, so I'm not falling and breaking a hip one day," said Mrs. Obama. According to People, the First Lady adjusted her workout regimen with her 60s and 80s in mind.

She is known for being a fitness fanatic and she works out every morning with her husband, President Barack Obama. She also shared in the interview with Fox411 what her thoughts are about restrictive diets which are very popular in the United States. She also has an anti-obesity campaign to reduce childhood obesity in the country.

"I don't obsess about what I eat, but I do make sure that I'm eating vegetables and fruit," she said. "And as everyone knows, I do exercise."

Mrs. Obama, who turns 50 on Friday, Jan. 17, said that she is excited about her golden birthday. She is optimistic about the future. She also said that her main priority is to be a good role model.

"I've got to keep figuring out ways to have an impact, whether as a mother or as a professional or as a mentor to other kids," she said.
