If you are expecting, just having a baby or balancing a few tiny ones and wondering how you can sneak in some exercise, you should certainly follow Hilaria Baldwin on Instagram. She uses her feed to share adorable photos of her children, snippets of her cool life and lots of quick exercise videos.
The celebrity fitness instructor, who is famously married to actor Alec Baldwin, is also great about deflecting and ignoring all of the “hate comments” she gets periodically.
I love what she wrote recently in response to one commenter:
” …Lets begin with your words: “shameless” “perfectly puckered” “pretend to be perfect” “not real”. I am sorry I don’t have any “warts” now, as you told me if I showed them I’d be “cooler”…I have never done a cosmetic procedure and I rarely wear makeup. So what is wrong with my pictures? I am just me. I take pics in all sorts of places….At the laundromat, right before bed, exercising, tired, pregnant, makeup free… I took pics throughout my pregnancy with Rafa and a day after he was born. No filter, no retouching…because I want to show real. And here I am playing with my little girl–no makeup other than a little mascara. I was having a perfectly fun, innocent time. Can’t we all just support each other? We may never meet and you can have any opinion of me you want, but I find that when we project negativity, we miss out. I know I open myself up to all sorts of body shaming when I post like this. So why do I do it? Because I WANT TO BE REAL. These are REAL moments of my life, and regardless of how I look, I am allowed to share them. I don’t want to change myself in order to try to please others. Then I would not be me. I have accepted myself with all my imperfections and weird eccentricities. And I am enjoying my life–which is ultimately what it’s all about, no?”
And now, here is a few of our favorite shares from her:
Get your core, hamstrings and butt kicked!!! ?? Start with 1 set and add on! ?? #366DaysOfLivingClearly #HilariaLCM #BaldwinBabyBump3 @triangl A video posted by Hilaria Thomas Baldwin (@hilariabaldwin) on
Butt, hamstrings, and inner thighs! Hard to get a workout in around here…well, chasing this little munchkin is probably better than anything I could ever do at the gym ?! Feet close to butt, press to the balls of the feet, lift pelvis up and down, squeezing inner thighs together. Try to lift the pelvis up more than I am doing here–I was focusing more on keeping track of Rafael than my form ?. 3 sets of 15, amigos ? #366DaysOfLivingClearly #HilariaLCM @sammyandnat
Workin out with all three of my babies!!! A few push-up secrets and tips: 1. You don’t have to lower very far to get benefits. You just have to make sure that your arms stay engaged and activated. I can’t lower very far at this point in my pregnancy and I still stay strong from these mini push-ups. 2. There is no shame in dropping your knees down. Most people who do full push-ups do them incorrectly, so check your ego at the door and use your knees for support. 3. Keep your core engaged! No back arching. 4. Have fun! This isn’t torture and when you see results, it’s like your birthday every day ??! 3 sets of 10! #366DaysOfLivingClearly #HilariaLCM Oh and ps…I’m heading out to an event…hence the getup ??
