It’s only been 18 months since Blake Lively welcomed her second child, and yet somehow, she’s rocking a summer body in February.
That may be almost impossible to believe but the actress posted photographic evidence on her Instagram page today:
“Turns out you can’t lose the 61 lbs. you gained during pregnancy by just scrolling through Instagram and wondering why you don’t look like all the bikini models,” Lively captioned the pic.
“Thanks @donsaladino for kickin my A double S into shape. 10 months to gain, 14 months to lose. Feeling very proud.”
Funny, in shape, and married to Deadpool?
“It’s not fair!” we cry, as we wipe Trump-colored Cheeto dust on our threadbare pajama pants.
Yes, yes … we know Blake has worked hard to get in such stellar shape, and we applaud her for it.
But what about those of us who don’t want to work out, but still don’t want an ounce of fat anywhere on our bodies?
You can see the predicament we’re in!
Amazingly, this is not the first time Blake has hit the gym hard soon after bringing a child into the world
“After I had a kid I thought, ‘Okay, this is what my body looks like. This is amazing — I earned this body,’ ” she said in 2016.
“‘And it’s not as good as it was before I had a kid, but, oh well.’”
Can we apply that mentality to eating one of every item on the Taco Bell menu in a single sitting?
It’s not as hard as having a kid, but we’re still proud of it, dammit!
Blake says that after her first kid, she was essentially forced to dedicate herself to nutrition and working out due to the fact that she was cast as a wetsuit-clad surfer in The Shallows.
“I’ve never been in that great a shape in my whole life,” she said.
“So to do it after having a kid was actually really nice. Because you see your body after having a kid and it’s beautiful because you just gave birth, but it’s also ‘Oh my god, this is not what my body looks like.’ You feel like you’re never going to get your body back again.”
Okay … there’s our excuse.
We’re never gonna be cast in a Hollywood movie, so it’s okay for us to continue living the slovenly life.
We’re feeling better already.
Anyone wanna split a pizza?
