Jessica Alba's New Mom Workout Twitter Tips
Wondering how Jessica Alba lost her baby weight? The celebrity mom shares her secrets—Twitter style!
How do celebrity moms snap back into shape so quickly after having a baby? Thanks to Twitter and the willingness of one star to spill some of her new mom shape-up secrets, we may finally have an answer. A few weeks after giving birth to baby Honor, Jessica Alba started to let her followers in on her post-pregnancy weight loss plans:
"I did my first day of workout since I had the baby, just cardio for 40 min. -it's a start. Anyone else starting a fitness regimen?" Alba tweets.
"My doctor told me I could start after 2 weeks. -I'm going light, stationary bike and elliptical," the mom of two later adds.
What else is Alba up to? She's tweeted about starting her week by taking a "dirty and smelly" hike around the Hollywood hills and working her way up to 30 minutes of cardio interval training and circuit training with light weights—at least four times a week.
She's also reaching out to other new moms with some easy-to-follow tips. "Start with walking, and throw in 3 sets of lunges 20 per leg," tweets the multi-tasking celebrity mom. "You could even do it while strolling your baby."
A revamped diet is also part of Alba's weight plans and she's tweeting tips on healthy weight loss, too. "I have a hard time with portion control, so I have 1,200 calorie meals delivered" she tweets. Can't afford door-to-door delivery from a personal chef? "I would keep your diet as healthy as possible 6 days a week and give yourself one day to indulge," Alba advises her followers.
We love that a busy star is so willing to share and we love that Alba also admits when her new-mom diet and exercise plan gets tossed out the window, like this recent gem:
"watching boxing -eating thai take out n browsing fashion and design blogs -perfect Sat night!"
Now what new mom would disagree?
