07/21/2016 at 04:45 PM ET

In an expansive two-part interview with PEOPLE this week, Ivanka Trump is opening up about balancing her many businesses, raising three children with her husband Jared Kushner, and dealing with the demands of her father Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

Ivanka Trump was back on the campaign trail for her father Donald Trump just two weeks after she had a baby this spring. Now, she’s discussing how she got back in shape after welcoming her third child, son Theodore.

“I find that in the absence of exercise, I have to be more mindful about what I eat and my diet, especially now that I just had a baby and trying to sort of get back to where I was before Theodore was born,” the entrepreneur and mother of three, 34, tells PEOPLE.

“So I’m being not perfect but definitely more cognizant than I normally am about the foods that I’m consuming.”

“For me, at the end of the day, exercise is more about how I physically feel and it’s giving me clarity of mind and diet has more of a direct impact on my actual weight,” she says.

“Being a mother is the most rewarding experience, but also the most wild and stressful.”

On the home front, Ivanka says she and Kushner, 35, are still getting used to life as a family of five.

“We’re acclimating to our new reality of having three babies at home. So it always takes a little while to adjust and find your family’s new rhythm,” she says.

“Jared is really incredibly hands on as a dad. For him what’s most important is his family. So we work really hard during the week and we really prioritize weekends for just being sort of reconnecting as a family. It’s very seldom that we’ll have a commitment on a Saturday or a Sunday. It’s really about us being together.”
