Over the last two years Khloe Kardashian has hit the gym, cut out dairy, and lost a whopping 40 lbs.
The 31-year-old brands her new habits as ‘a healthy addiction’ in an interview with People Magazine.
But the gym has also become a sanctuary for the reality star who has found solace and catharsis in achieving her goals and sweating out her frustrations.

The grit and grind of the gym, Khloe believes, is a type of therapy and ultimately a profound method of self-help.
‘It’s like buying your sanity!’ she proclaims in her chat with People.
But Khloe’s routine was put on hold last year when her estranged husband Lamar Odom was hospitalized in Nevada after being found unconscious at a brothel on October 13.

Khloe, who is still legally married to the former basketball great, took charge of overseeing Lamar’s medical care.
During the first month of his hospitalization the reality star had to abandon the routine that had brought her solace since their split in 2013.
Khloe says that there was a week where she didn’t even have a chance to shower as she was so focused on making sure Lamar had proper care.

‘But for the first month, I wasn’t even really thinking about that. It wasn’t about me,’ Khloe said. ‘But once I started getting my feet back under me a little bit, I was like, “oh my God, I need to get back to my routine.”‘
Meanwhile, Khloe made it to New York on Wednesday for a TV spot on Good Morning America after there were concerns she wouldn’t make it on time due to the travelling dramas she had been forced to face.
Hours beforehand, on Tuesday, Khloe revealed on Twitter that her New York-bound plane had to take an emergency landing in Las Vegas .
She wrote: I’m supposed to be in NYC but somehow I’m in Vegas. NYC I’m trying to get there.’
