Being a mom can be hard and Jessie James Decker knows this all too well. The singer, who welcomed her son, Forrest Bradley three months ago took to Instagram on Thursday (July 12) to share some of the problems she has been facing as a new mom. Jessie is seen explaining in the video that she had “barely finished my workout because [Forrest] started waking up from his nap, crying.” The singer added that sometimes it is difficult for her to get a good workout session done because she has to feed Forrest. "It is, like, super tough to try to get a good workout in with your baby trying to nap and crying,” she explained in the video while breastfeeding her son.
Even though Jessie confessed that there are times when she does not get time for herself, the singer said she felt accomplished to have had a good workout done. “But I did it, it was a 10-minute workout and I feel really good about it,” she said. She also encouraged other new mothers to do what they want to do even if it means doing it for a little while. “Try to get it done today if you can, girls. Even if your baby starts screaming towards the end, whatever you do, every little bit of it counts," she said.
Meanwhile, in the caption of the video, Jessie opened up about the struggle of being positive while working out as it does not show one immediate results. “I will admit this is been the most challenging to see any progress this time around. Baby Number three is no joke when it comes to your body and all the changes!” she wrote.
“I’m definitely used to seeing things progress a lot faster but I’m trying to be patient. Trying to stay active and trying to eat healthy as much as I can!!" she continued. "I’m not one of those women that drops weight from breastfeeding I’m one of those women that hold onto every little ounce of weight that I have to continue to make milk for my baby.” She added that in the end, it matters to stay healthy for the child.
“So, in the end, all that matters is he’s healthy and eating well but I’m not going to lie obviously I would love to see some changes physically so I can fit back into my old clothes but I have to remind myself I’m only four months post and we have to be patient with ourselves and just do all that you can’t feel healthy and good in your own skin!!” James Decker added, with the hashtags #mommyworkoutdiary #15lbstogo.
