Is anyone really surprised that Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham also makes money as a model? She's got the kind of mom body that most moms would kill for. And Farrah has got some news for the rest of the moms out there.
That toned tummy did not come from some genetics fairy. Even being a teenager when she gave birth was not enough to magically make her body snap back after baby Sophia came along. So Farrah has taken to doing what the rest of us have to do to keep the weight at bay: she works out. And from the looks of it, that may be her next adventure after this week's finale puts the end to her career on Teen Mom.
Farrah has uploaded the first of what she says will be several workout videos to YouTube. It's rumored that this is a tie-in to a possible workout DVD.
I know what you're thinking: what does some random reality star have to say about working out? The DVD section of your local dollar store is loaded down with enough failed celebrity workout sessions that they could probably start a whole new store.
And yet, I will give Farrah credit here.
In between writing a memoir, filming a TV show, and cooking up a new pasta sauce sales venture with her mom, Farrah is still doing the single mom thing every day. And yet she keeps herself in shape. As a married working mom who hasn't been able to keep my promises to walk several times a week this summer with my best friend because life got in the way, I know I could use a few pointers on carving out the time.
And Farrah's first "secret" -- given as an aside during a hip extension exercise how-to -- could work for a lot of moms. Stop trying to figure out how to get time away from your kids, and start figuring out how to incorporate them into your routine. Farrah lets Sophia "help" her. Take a look:
Not exactly groundbreaking, but as she says in the video's caption, "It's possible to work out with your child!"
Maybe it's time to mark that excuse off your list, Moms?
Have you tried working out with your child, incorporating them into your routine? Would you watch Farrah's workout videos?
