Khloe welcomed daughter True Thompson four months ago with boyfriend Tristan Thompson. She says that she returned to the gym 6 weeks after giving birth, but she admits that it did take her time to go back to her routine.
This week the new mom shared a photo of her showing off super toned tummy just month after giving birth and people were impressed to say the least. Khloe, though, was fast to bring them back to reality, saying it was all a “great illusion.”
In July she told fans on her app: “I want to get back to my regular routine from before I got pregnant, which was work out five to six times a week.”
“The first day, I could not do the most simple things. I was out of breath. It was just different. And I kind of felt really defeated. Like, ‘Oh man. I don’t know if I can do this,’” she said. “After the first week I was like, ‘Okay. I am feeling a little better.’ I am not breathing so hard. I don’t need as many breaks. But I would say really after three weeks was when I felt good.”
“You’re f—ing tired,” she said about motherhood. “I just said to my sisters [Kourtney Kardashian and Kim Kardashian West], ‘How do you have more than one kid?’ I am exhausted. I am taking the [baby] monitor to the garage, I am trying to get [workouts] in. And it is hard. It is really hard. And you’re just tired. Your hormones are different. It is just a mindf—-!”
The new mom has reportedly already lost 33 pounds since giving birth and she more determined than ever to get her body back, according to her personal trainer Gunnar Peterson.
“She definitely gets it,” the trainer shares. “She gets the blueprint. She gets the template. She was with me for years, nonstop, every single day.”
“Khloé looks and feels great. She is eating well and is working out really hard already. She does a real hour of workout a day,” a source tells Us Weekly. “She’s motivated to be fit and to get back to a smaller size than before she got pregnant.”
