Pregnant Jessica Simpson Inspired by Jessica Alba's Body

Jessica Alba's Postbaby Bod Is Jessica Simpson's Inspiration — What's Yours?

Just two weeks after giving birth to daughter Haven last August, Jessica Alba tweeted: "I did my first day of wrkout [sic] since I had the baby, just cardio for 40 min. — it's a start." No wonder she had no problems slimming down to her amazing postbaby body. As a fellow momma, I'm not the only one in awe. A pregnant Jessica Simpson is totally inspired and tweeted: "New goal: look like @jessicaalba after baby. Job well done lady!"

Jessica Alba was flattered and responded with a tweet, "OMG! Ur so sweet! Thx hon!" Aside from aspiring to look as fit and healthy as someone else, there are many ways we stay motivated when it comes to dropping pounds. What keeps you on task?

The emphasis on getting your body back as quickly as possible after baby really makes me quite sad. I understand the pressure involved when one works in Hollywood for a living, but that's not to say it isn't a sad situation. I try to stay strong with my workouts - skinny has never been my goal. Strong and healthy is my mantra.

I voted other. I knew my relationship with the bd wasn't going to last, so I wanted to be fit for the next man. Also for my own health, well being and self esteem. I also get a rush when people don't know I have a kid. Like, I'll be out with strangers wearing something skimpy and I'll mention her and they'll look me up and down and be like, "YOU have a kid?" It's a high that's hard to describe, but it's addictive.

^ lol so true. I said "I do it for my health", which is true, but what got me started was 2 years ago, I was sitting at work eating my lunch (at my desk, of course, we don't get lunch breaks...) and I saw Britney Spears 2001 "Slave 4 U" VMA performance that a friend posted on Facebook. I was like, I can look like that. Her thighs were strong and perfect (as mine always seemed to be, I just had a layer of flat around my entire body). I was at the gym 5 days a week, then this year I switched to just distance running outdoors and yoga. I'm currently training for the Disney Princess Half Marathon in February (I do 11 miles tomorrow!) and I owe it all to Britney (one of my faves as a tween/teen... still is!)
