JILLIAN MICHAELS Motherhood Comes Before Working Out!

It looks like fitness isn’t that much of a priority anymore in Jillian Michael’s life now that she’s a mom. Well, that’s a big fat lie, isn’t it? I mean, look at her! She looks more hotter now than ever before. The new celebrity mom confesses though that she IS having a hard time fitting in her workout schedule while trying to balance her career with her family life now that she’s a mother. Hey, welcome to our world! The celebrity fitness trainer opens up to Shape Magazine this month and here are some snippets of what she says:

On fitting in fitness: “I used to say, ‘If you’re going to exercise, then you do it, and you do it 100 percent. Now if I’ve got to answer emails while I work out on the StairMaster, well, then that’s what it is. People can rub my nose in it, because it is so hard — so hard — to take care of yourself when you’re a parent.”

On her hectic schedule: “I get up at 7 a.m. — after being up all night with the baby — and run around trying to get both kids diaper-changed, dressed and fed. Finally I’ll shower, and before I know it, I’ve got 50 emails to answer, and I need to leave for work. At the end of the day, I come home, and I’m like, ‘Okay, let me bathe you, change you, feed you, read you books, put you to bed — wait, how am I supposed to do all this? Son of a b—-, this is hard!’” She adds: “Every day I tell myself how blessed I am … I can’t b—- about it, because this is what I wanted. I just thought I’d be able to manage it better. My new motto: As long as I’m winning more than I’m losing, I’m still winning!”

On the challenges of motherhood: “”Everything right now is ‘Lu do, Lu do.’ She wants to do everything herself, but it means you have to sit there for 20 minutes while she tries to put on a shirt. It kills me because I’ve got to go to work. [My partner] Heidi [Rhoades] gets mad at me: ‘How else is she going to learn how to put on her shirt?’ or ‘Don’t rush her, you’re rushing her!’ It makes me crazy, so I’ll just sit on the floor of the closet checking emails while Lu tries to figure out how to put on her shirt. It’s brutal, but I’m really trying. I guarantee it’s going to be their number one issue in therapy.”

On keeping her kids active: “It’s about finding things your kids love to do. Lu loves horses, so I take her to the stables, and she loves dancing, so I put music on and she dances around the house. We run on the beach with the dogs and take her out to ride her tricycle. We just have a healthy lifestyle — we play! The baby is too young, but I have visions of our doing Brazilian jujitsu and capoeira together. Or maybe he’ll want to take ballet, and that’s OK, too.“

– Thank you Jillian Michaels for telling it like it is! I think almost every mother has that moment where she feels that mom guilt when she tries to rush her children out the door. I mean, it’s no walk in the park trying to juggle your career with her family life. Kudos to Jillian for being honest as sometimes it’s good to hear the truth from a celebrity of her caliber. There’s no doubt in my mind that she’s a great, dedicated mom. 🙂
