When I read and/or heard Kelly Ripa announce one day that she doesn’t diet or exercise much and that her three kids and hectic schedule keep her skinny, I was like, “yeah right, lady. Tell me another one!”Seen here with daughter, Lola.
but alas, for the last few months, amid a rather ridiculously hectic schedule, my family’s loss, the frantic holiday season and all the normal mayhem that comes from trying to balance work life, a large family brood, I have managed not to pack on my usual extra 5-10 lbs for the Holiday season!!! I have even gone down at least one dress size (even though I do not believe I have lost any weight, per se).
Like today for example. I have to do holiday shopping. I have 3 hours of work meetings. I have a Christmas piano recital for my son. I will try my earnest to squeeze in a meal or a quick 30 minute run, but it’s not looking good.
And as I post this, my 6 year old just said, “Oh well, mom, I guess I have to make breakfast by myself! (so, I gotta go) Keeping up with two blogs adds to the challenge too, I suppose.
Kelly Ripa is my “Mom of Three Kids” Muse!! I do believe genetics have something to do with it as well, I must admit.
I’m not complaining but I do miss working out and eating, but I am loving being able to fit in my size 4s Again!! yippee!!!bellyitchblog.com+1 more Over 9 million people have enjoyed Bellyitch's Award-winning Celeb "bumpwatch" pregnancy and parenting blog.
