Christina Aguilera Gets Down and Dirty About Exercise

Christina Aguilera has definitely transformed before our eyes. This pop princess turned hardworking mom added losing post-pregnancy baby weight to her to do list and she looks fabulous. In a recent Glamour interview, Christina openly admits that she's not someone whose pounds just magically melted off days after baby was born and I appreciate her honesty (and hard work). Here are highlights:

On her current workout:
"I hate working out – I have to mentally push myself through it. I can get very whiny, saying things like, 'I can't do it!'"

On hard core trainers:
"No – I can't deal with having someone barking at me. Mean training is not motivating to me at all; I like to be comforted [through my workout]. All my trainer has to do is say nicely, 'I want you to do 200 bicycles; go right through it and don't stop.' Then I'll know she's serious and I'll do it. I started out not being able to do man push-ups; pull-ups were a big one too. Now I can do five in a row."

There's more including what she loved the most about her pregnant body so


On how quickly she noticed a change in her body:
"Being the perfectionist that I am, my attitude was, this had better hurry up – I want results! My trainer kept saying, 'Give it time, you're looking great.' Everyone around me was saying they could see a difference, but, you know, you're hardest on yourself. I did see my stomach get flatter and tighter and more muscle definition."

On what she liked least about her postbaby body and what she liked the most:
"Well, I was OK with the booty and the boobs! [Laughs.] My stomach was really where I carried my weight. Toward the end of my pregnancy, I felt really big – I gained about 40 pounds, which is a lot for my size. My hips also changed significantly. And my feet grew from a size 5 to a size 7 in flats – thank God they [went back to normal]. I would have been so depressed if I had to get rid of my shoe collection!"

Truthfully, I don't identify with Christina. I love to workout. Exercise is good to me, and I love what's good to me. :)

hottpink--I know! I hope my feet don't grow either! I'm only 5'3" and I wear 8 1/2 or 9s...which are huge for the rest of my body, lol. I'm with Christina on the whole "mean trainer" thing. My trainer was really straightforward, but nice about it. I don't do well with scare tactics or people bullying me into doing stuff.

I'm exactly like her...I whine sometimes and I hate mean trainers!! It definitely doesn't work for me..all it makes me want to do is punch them in the nuts. Or whatever they have.
