She's Got a Standing Lunch Date; Kate Mulgrew Boldly Charts a Fitness Course by Eating on Her Feet--and on the Run

"Star Trek: Voyager" may not be able to find Earth's gravity as it wanders through the Delta Quadrant, but Capt. Kathryn Janeway cannot escape it. "I'm on my feet all day, so when I talk about gravity, I'm saying that it's probably wise to put your feet up a couple of times a day," said actress Kate Mulgrew, who plays Janeway in the third generation of the "Star Trek" TV series. "I have a small frame, so the pull on my body at the end of the day can sometimes be a little rough, especially if I exceed 14 hours. And I'm in 3 1/2-inch heels, so the back takes it, the butt takes it, the stomach takes it, the uterus probably takes it as well."
