They’re famous, talented and have some of the best physiques in town. Yes, it could be because they literally have millions in their bank account as motivation, but the fact remains that celebrity bodies are not always the cause of just amazing genetics. Time and time again the fit and fab have revealed their secret workout routines, trendy exercise equipment as well as strict diet plans.
Such openness has given us all a different perspective of what it really takes to be red carpet ready. Since giving birth to twins Zoe Saldana has been quite candid and honest on all the effort it has taken in order to get her pre-baby body back. Saldana has been inspiring women through her Facebook posts and her Instagram literally had our mouths dropping!
Zoe recently tried on a Guardian of the Galaxy costume she wore before pregnancy. You go girl!
Zoe Saldana posted a photo of her and her hubby, Marco Perego, on vacation that clearly showed why see earns the big bucks. Zoe looked like she had never ever even given birth to a child, much less twins! The 70lbs she gained during her pregnancy are clearly all gone.
If you have ever tried to lose weight and it felt like a losing battle, take heart because Zoe felt the exact same way. Here are few excerpts from her social media posts:
“Your body changes dramatically, inside and out. You grow in places you never knew you could, and you are tired beyond belief… Everything from my thyroid to my platelets crashed…my body was really bent out of shape after the boys were born. Bouncing back feels impossible, but I know it is important as a woman, and now a mommy, to not give up.”
“Holy s–t! You guys, I had to share this, this is one of the old Guardians of the Galaxy costumes that I wore back in 2013. After twins I can’t believe I can slip into this… It pays off to work hard! I mean it mommies of the world, if I did you can too!”
Mommy are not being in shape is a good goal for all of us. Let’s stay motivated like Zoe and we shall all reap the benefits as well!
