Just six months after the birth of her second child, The View’s Elisabeth Hasselbeck bared all for Fitness magazine, showing off her uber-toned post-baby bod. “I finally told myself … ‘I’ve got some curves, I’ve got a bubble butt, but I don’t mind, because it’s what powers me forward when I run,’ ” she said.
And run she did. Elisabeth said on The View Wednesday that she trained the way she did in high school, like an athlete, even comparing her regimen to that of her football-playing hubby Tim. She worked out for six weeks, including daily dashes and weight training. And to get that flat belly back, she did ab work two times a week.
“Body image has nothing to do with scale numbers, it’s how you feel inside,” Elisabeth, who turns 31 this month, told the magazine. “This is the first time I’ve felt free from that, because I am working out in a way where I feel so strong that there’s no room for those doubts.”
Hmm. Elisabeth says that it’s all about how she feels in the inside, but her training regimen to get her bod to look flawless on the outside seems pretty intense, no? Though, at the same time, I think that her decision to make her body strong, not thin per say, is a great example of a healthy mindset.
Do you think Elisabeth’s workout plan was too extreme?
