More Motivation from Gabby Reece

Gabby Reece is a smart, athletic woman and mom. She is working hard at spreading a positive message to all of us other women and moms about our health and our bodies.

Here's more:

Hey, it's about being all that you are at whatever phase of life you're living. Hot is hot. You don't have to have a number to define you or make you dynamic and alive. Perfectly smooth skin doesn't make you happy, and if it did, what do you call all those hormonal teenagers running around? Of course I look back upon the past with fondness - after all, it's what brought me to the place I'm standing. However, I don't want to go back there, I want to focus on what I'm trying to create now.

Okay, so now is my time to get superficial with you. Our bodies. Why are we torturing ourselves about our bodies? How about taking in where you are, and if you want to make some improvements (lose some weight, take up a new exercise class, start getting outside more often, eat better, change your hair) then go for it. Yes, I do believe you can get better with age, feel better, look better, but it's not going to happen by wishing you were at another time in your life. It's only going to happen by embracing where you are now and being the best you can be. Right now.

Gabby is taking her own advice as her husband, surfer Laird Hamilton, talked to People about Reece who despite being 5 months pregnant spent the weekend in Chicago playing on the AVP Pro Beach Volleyball Tour. In her spare time, Reece has also been offering fitness tips for expectant mothers. "She's feeling good, training hard, working out like an animal. She gets checked out every week to make sure it's good – she's not foolhardy," he continues, "She's in the best shape of her life, and she's really happy with the way she's playing."

I was wondering where she has been. She has always been beautiful and has had that great body.

Wow is she 5 months pregnant? Maybe it's because she's really tall because she doesn't really show a bump.
