Was It Difficult To See Your Shape Change While Pregnant?
I couldn’t help but embrace it. You just want what’s best for your baby. I tried not to get carried away, but I wanted to splurge a little.
What Did You Indulge In?
Oh, my God, candy! I had a huge craving for candy toward the end of the pregnancy, from Starbursts to Skittles. I actually took a picture of myself with my big belly in a little top, surrounded by bowls of the candy I like.
What Size Are You Now?
Sizes vary from 2 to 4. I wore a size 1 to 2 before I was pregnant, but I always stated extra-small. Even when I was expecting. I had these amazing maternity tights that were extra-small.
You’re Back Into Your Jeans!
Yes, it’s just a matter of feeling as good in them as I did before! My goal was to get back into a pair I love from Hysteric Glamour. I fit into my size extra-small, but I notice I have different hips than before — though I embrace the new curves, especially above the waist!
Biggest Challenge To Losing The Weight?
It’s more mental than anything; food is comforting. Like when I first got engaged, I gained weight. We call it the “love chub.” When you’re happy and you’re cozy just chillin’ in bed together on a day off, what do you want to do? Cozy up with cozy foods. For me, it’s a baked potato and a steak. And I truly love southern comfort food: fried chicken, macaroni and cheese.
Tell Us About Your Diet Now.
I’m not into depriving myself; rather, I limit the bad things that I like. I watch my carbs and starches. It was a huge thing to switch to wheat bread — I love my white bread! — but I did it! The toughest thing is not having what you want when you want it. I’m a night owl and a late-night snacker, so it’s hard not to reach for a comforting bag of chips.
And When Did You Start Working Out Again?
As soon as my doctor gave me that six-week green light (standard practice after having a C-section). I was itching for it! I started out slow, just listening to my body and making sure that I didn’t overdo it.
How Is Jordan Supportive?
Even when I have a cheat day and say, “Ugh, I shouldn’t be eating this,” he’ll say, “Honey, you look amazing. Just eat it.” So much of people’s body issues is mental. I have positive people around me, and my husband is really supportive. One of the most important things to me is staying positive and raising a child with a great outlook and self-esteem. In making the decision to marry whom I did, I knew that my husband is not the type to have violent tendencies, and he would never hurt me. We had many conversations before, and I really ensured that I put myself in the position to marry someone who was not going to, in any way, shape or form, repeat the cycle of abuse with my child and what I had endured as a child. (Aguilera has been open about her father’s physical abuse.)
Aguilera works out with pro Tee Sorge for 90 minutes, five days a week. their routine:
- Cardio: 40 minutes of intervals on either the treadmill or eliptical.
- Toning: 40 minutes, Aguilera does stength training (which Sorge changes every session to prevent plateaus), like biceps curls, chest presses, pushups, and lunges (three sets of 8 to 12 reps), finishing with 300 different abs exercises such as crunches.
- Stetching: 10 minutes
