Revamp Your Exercise Program Like Isla Fisher — 1 Minute Makeover

The Problem: You don’t have enough time to exercise every single muscle group, during your limited workouts.

The Fix:

  Recently, many celebrity mommas are admitting to streamlining their personal fitness routines, by focusing only on what works for their body type. For example, Sheree Whitfield (mother and Real Housewife of Atlanta, as photographed at the Jill Stuart Spring 2010 fashion show), admits to focusing her time on her lower body, because her arms easily hold on to tone. Meanwhile, other moms (like Isla Fisher, above, or Naomi Watts) admit to only doing what interests them (like Pilates or playing with their child) instead of forcing themselves through rigid workout routines. Sometimes when women actually let their body be naturally active (and listen to their body in terms of hunger and fullness signals), their health, energy and size will stabilize more easily than if they’re focusing on the issue.

* Sound Off: What works for you… a strict exercise regimen, or simply remaining active in your day-to-day life?

    In order to really LOSE weight, what has worked for me the best is to have a strict diet and regimen, but to maintain a loss, with proper diet, simply remaining active in my daily life seems to work!

    Same here! I think when I don’t focus on it, life is much easier : ) How have you been doing? I read about your fitting into your “skinny shorts”- hehe…

    I’d love to feature you in a “Fitness Momma Insider” post (I have one going live this Friday- so check it out and see what you think)…

  3. If only playing with my kids helped me lose weight! Sadly, my kids require a number of snacks while they play and I like snacks too, so snack and play, snack and play, that\’s what we do. I need to focus mostly on my tummy, which I hate doing. That may be why my midsection looks like chocolate pudding!

  4. Bailey says:

    I get caught in the “snack and play” cycle too (and the “feeling like I look like pudding” syndrome)… but other days I forget to eat because we’re running around like crazy- and that is just as bad (for me), because my metabolism slows down to a snails pace!

    You said, “Meanwhile, other moms (like Isla Fisher, above, or Naomi Watts) admit to only doing what interests them (like Pilates or playing with their child) instead of forcing themselves through rigid workout routines.” Actually, while Isla claimed that originally, she did eventaully admit that the studio hired a personal trainer for her. Then she said she really didn’t listen to him and relys on Spanx instead. She does appear to me to have put some weight back on recently.

    I think it’s a real disservice for actresses to claim to have lost baby weight with no effort and for blogs to repeat those claims. I’m sure they all work their butts off to look good after baby, and that includes diet, exercise, Spanx, stylists and surgery. To hold actresses with those resources up as models that the average women doesn’t have the time or resources to emulate them is foolish.

  6. Bailey says:

    I agree that actresses shouldn’t falsely explain their results…but we clearly don’t hold any particular body type up as role models- because almost every fitness section on Makeover Momma features exercises that you can do with baby, things you can do from home, and easy ways to fit fitness into your daily life.

    We are not saying that getting healthy after baby doesn’t take work (check out our latest Fitness Momma Insider feature, following real moms as they shape up)- but that’s the point of the entire post: do some moms find that it’s easier to shape up intentionally, or rather to just live healthier? Personally, I DO slim down after baby without any diet, exercise, Spanx or surgery… but that’s just me. We’re all different.
