The chef and cookbook author has been on a three-year health journey, and now that she's lost weight, she wants to define her body.
“I've been on a health journey for the past three years,” she told PEOPLE.
“I've lost 35 pounds. In the past year, I've been really pumped, but now I want that definition, and I want to feel strong in my skin.
The beauty also shared with PEOPLE that she has to remind herself not to compare her fitness success to others, especially her NBA superstar husband Stephen Curry.
The two met while attending the same church as teenagers. Their relationship only morphed into romance when they reconnected years later in 2008.
They married in June 2011 and had their first child, Riley, 10, the following year. The couple subsequently welcomed two more children, Ryan, seven, and Canon, four.
Ayesha admits that she has learned not to compete on her health and fitness journey, but to be happy with the progress she has made, especially since she has had three children over the past 10 years.
She said: “I'm married to a high-level athlete who can do everything. And I think I have to be honest with myself and realize that I can't do that and I don't have to do that to see the results I want to see.
’ I kind of have this inner rivalry that doesn’t exist. So no matter what I'm doing, I'm almost always beaten because I can't do it at that level. I figured I had to take a moment, take a deep breath, and realize that doing your best is enough.
