New Mom Khloe Kardahian ‘Exhausted’ as She Tries to Get ‘Back into the Groove of Working Out’

Khloé Kardashian is super excited about being allowed to work out again, but she’s also got a long way to go before she can get back to her old fitness regimen.

“Today is the first day that I have been allowed to work out with my trainer,” the 33-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star  who recently welcomed 4-week-old daughter True  revealed on Thursday in a series of social media videos.

Although the new mom admitted she was “exhausted” after finishing up her first workout, that didn’t put a damper on how excited she was to be getting back into the swing of things.

“It feels so good to finally sweat again and feel like I’m evolving and doing something progressive for my body and my mind,” she added.

Addressing her current fitness limitations — which includes trying to balance breastfeeding with working out  the Revenge Body host reminded herself that “it’s only day one.”

“It is a struggle getting back into the groove of working out. Mentally, I’m strong, but physically it’s just not the same. My body is not doing what I feel like my mind is telling it to do. So that’s a struggle, but it’s only day one,” she said. “I need to motivate myself.”

Kardashian’s latest sweat session comes just two days after she was photographed hitting the gym in Cleveland, where she lives with boyfriend Tristan Thompson, amid allegations he cheated on Kardashian multiple times throughout her pregnancy.

Opening up about how much she wants to get her pre-baby body back, earlier this week the 33-year-old revealed on her website/app that she “couldn’t believe how big my booty looked” after she saw herself “in those first post-pregnancy paparazzi photos

“I can’t wait to tone up again and get my body back to where it was,” she added.

Kardashian is also convinced that her 4-week-old daughter is going to be incredibly strong and athletic, just like her parents.

“Baby True is going to be a month old on Thursday! So far, she’s so incredibly sweet and patient — really not fussy at all,” the reality star shared in a Thursday update to her website and app.

“I can tell she’s going to be super athletic and incredibly strong! She’s very calm, peaceful and loves to cuddle with her parents,” Kardashian continue as she praised her little bundle of joy.

Why Liam Hemsworth Didn’t Attend the Grammys with Miley Cyrus: ‘He Was in Hospital’

Miley Cyrus‘ new husband Liam Hemsworth was noticeably missing from her side at the 2019 Grammy Awards.

Instead of attending music’s biggest night Sunday, Hemsworth was apparently in the hospital. “[Liam] was in hospital overnight, so hopefully he will be fine,” his Isn’t It Romantic costar Rebel Wilson told Extra on Sunday.

“He texted us this morning,” Wilson added.

A rep for Warner Brothers told PEOPLE that Hemsworth woke up, was not feeling well and had to miss the press day on Sunday.

A rep for Hemsworth did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Meanwhile, Cyrus, who opted for an oversized black tuxedo and flared pants, was joined by her parents Tish and Billy Ray Cyrus at the Grammys.

The singer performed a surprise duet with Shawn Mendes for his hit single “In My Blood” before joining godmother Dolly Parton onstage to perform “Jolene.”

Hemsworth and Cyrus said “I do” in an intimate, secret ceremony at her home in Franklin, Tennessee, on Dec. 23, 2018. She wore an off-the-shoulder Vivienne Westwood gown while Hemsworth wore a traditional black tux.

8 Secrets of People Who Never Miss a Workout

We all have that one pal or family member that seems to consistently be working out. On social media, there are the countless check-ins at the gym and fitness studios, the #seenonmyrun hashtags, the pics of brand-new and triumphantly mud-covered sneakers, updates on calories burned, and maps of miles biked or jogged. Meanwhile, you may have meant to head to the gym—but instead, here you are, scrolling through your feeds on the couch.

Real talk: It may not look like it, but even those avid exercisers sometimes struggle. “When my alarm goes off each morning, my first thought is often ‘urgggg,’” confesses Jessie F.*, an endurance athlete who’s completed three marathons, a full Ironman, and more half-marathons and Olympic triathlons than she can count. (Impressive, right?) But no matter what the weather—or how early her alarm goes off—Jessie never bails on a workout.

What keeps her so committed? We spoke to people who never miss a scheduled sweat sesh–along with personal trainers and coaches who go to the gym like, well, it’s their job–to find out their secrets.

Make it easy—really, really easy

Your workout can be gentle or challenging, but the logistics should always be simple. That’s why Pete N. skips the gym in favor of P90X. “Exercising at home saves time, so there’s never an excuse not to work out,” he says.

Rachel Kasab goes a step beyond the classic advice to pack your workout gear the night before. “If I have an early wake-up the next day, sometimes I sleep in my workout clothes to make sure I follow through,” she says. “Once you have your gear on you have no excuse!”

Find a tribe—or at least a buddy—to keep you accountable

“My real secret is finding the other ‘crazies’ who enjoy working out at the crack of dawn,” Jessie says. “If you agree to meet your workout buddy at 5:45 a.m., there’s no way you can back out. When I did the Ironman, I couldn’t have done it without finding my crew.”

Not wanting to let people down is compelling for instructors too. “I became a group fitness instructor in 2016,” says Cori Magnotta. “You can’t flake out when 20 people are counting on you to show up and lead them!”

Make sure you’ll pay a price for bailing

Gyms and studios that charge even if you skip out on your workout are on to something. “My gym charges a $10 penalty fee if you don’t show up for a class you registered for plus the price of the class,” says Jen. C. “You could lose up to $30 for just being lazy. I can’t stand wasting money, so when I sign up for a class, I go.”

Ashley D. upped the ante and hired a running coach who crafts personalized workout schedules for her and her husband. “The accountability is huge,” she says. “I don’t want to waste the money we pay for the coach, and I’m embarrassed if I don’t get in all my workouts or don’t show improvement over time, so I make sure to do all my runs and try hard. First time I’ve ever really stuck with running–and I just ran my first half-marathon!”

Invest in technology

Gadgets know when you hit your fitness goals–and when you slack. “My Fitbit keeps me honest and accountable,” says Deb Russell, who never misses a workout aside from sick days.

Cathy Hale combines both friends and tech to keep her accountable. “I share my workout activity on my Apple Watch with my super-fit friend,” she says. “It may sound silly, but it keeps me motivated to hit our shared goals. We’re both in our 40s with kiddos, so even when we can’t always work out together, she keeps me motivated virtually. We text each other notes of encouragement.”

Focus on how it’ll make you feel afterward

Jessie credits happy-making endorphins with keeping her committed to daily workouts. And she’s not alone. “I always know I’ll feel great after I start my run, and sometimes that’s reason enough to get going,” says Emily A. “After I had a bad breakup and was feeling so depressed, I’d remind myself that if I ran, the endorphins would make me feel better chemically. I’d make a conscious effort to remember that running would lift me up and improve my mood.”

Sign up for a race—or schedule a treat

A due date—in the form of a scheduled race—is motivation magic. “I started running in 2017 and part of how I got myself to run was registering for a 5K and planning to do it with friends,” says Amy M. Gardner, certified coach and consultant with Apochromatik. After her first 5K in April, she signed up for another in September and a 15K the following month. “Whether it was not wanting to finish a race dead last or just wanting to keep a commitment to friends, it helped me get out the door on the days when running wasn’t remotely appealing,” she says. “By the time I registered for an 8K on Thanksgiving Day, I was doing it because I knew it would be fun and didn’t need the peer pressure/embarrassment threat to get myself training [anymore].”

Not into running? Other concrete, specific fitness goals–like doing 50 crunches a day–are also effective. Small incentives help too: “Book a manicure,” suggests Kasab, or schedule another fun reward for immediately after your gym session.

Make it a habit

“Rut” is usually a bad word when it comes to workouts. But a predictable routine—swimming every morning, for instance—can remove that will I or won’t I? deliberation.

“For about 10 years I worked out six to seven days a week without fail,” says Jessica Cintron. Exercise was originally a way to avoid the dreaded freshman 15, she says, but eventually grew into a habit. “At some point it became a part of my routine, and I no longer thought about it as something to schedule into my day,” she says. “It just was a part of my day.”

She’s not the only one. “We say that doing something every day is easier than doing something some days,” says Lara Land, owner of Land Yoga, an Ashtanga yoga studio in New York City. “You just do it, the same way you brush your teeth every day.”

Give yourself a little break

Here’s maybe the biggest secret of all: Even the most devoted exercisers take days off. “To keep my workout promises to myself, I build in rest days without guilt,” says KJ Landis, author and creator of the Superior Self series. “I allow myself to sleep in, get a massage or pedicure, take in a movie, or go on a shopping excursion. It’s a well-deserved break that deserves no self-deprecating thoughts.”

Learn to tell the difference between simply not being in the mood to hit the gym and those days when you’re really better off taking it easy. “Get into a routine—but listen to your body when it’s tired,” says life coach Emily Radin. “If you’re truly dying to veg in front of the TV for a night with a bowl of pasta, just think of it as a refueling night,” she says. “My ultimate golden rule is never miss three days in a row.”

Kate Hudson Does Her First Post-Baby Cycling Workout — on Thanksgiving!

 

There’s no turkey coma for Kate Hudson this Thanksgiving.

On the biggest eating day of the year, Hudson opted to get in her first cycling workout since she welcomed her third child, daughter Rani Rose, on Oct. 2.

The actress, 39, hopped on her Peloton bike for the workout, an at-home spin bike that includes live streams of classes.

“Okay, on this Thanksgiving day, I’m thankful for Peloton,” Hudson said on her Instagram story. “I’m about to have my first ride in months, so excited.”

The Fabletics co-founder is all about the latest at-home streaming fitness devices, and also said she was going to try using a Mirror — which, as the name suggests, is a mirror that guides users through a workout class — after her Peloton ride.

 

“Then I’m going to get on that puppy over there. Compliments of Sara Foster. It’s a thing called the Mirror,” she said. “Never done it. Don’t know anything about it. About to try it.”

Hudson didn’t share that part of her workout, but she did report that she had a successful 7-mile bike class with her “favorite” instructor, Alex T.

Before her pregnancy, Hudson was a constant in the Pilates studio. At the end of October, 20 days after baby Rani arrived, she was itching to “get back in the ring” and return to her workouts, which she had lightened up during her pregnancy.

 “The stakes are higher because it is not about you anymore, it is about this other being growing inside of you, but right now she is kind of letting me know that we have to take it easy,” she told PEOPLE in May. “So I’m doing a lot of walking, I’m doing some amazing prenatal yoga that I’m loving, which I’ve never done with my pregnancies. So this is a first and it’s been amazing, but slow and steady.”

I Think Therefore I Can

If you need a bit of a push to turn your New Year intentions into action, all it takes is a fresh perspective on willpower, as Helen Foster explains…

How are your New Year’s resolutions going, now we’re well into February? If you decided that 2018 is going to be the springboard for a few changes in life, there’s important news. It turns out that thing called willpower you think you need in order to resist temptation or do something you might not feel like doing can be developed simply by tweaking how you think. Welcome to your year of the ‘I Can Do It’ attitude and all the success it will bring.

‘I’ve got no willpower’ used to be my mantra in life. I used it as an excuse for all sorts of things: why I’m always a little bit heavier than I want to be; the reason I always say yes to a night out rather than go to the gym; and why I’ll always have the chips not the side salad! In my mind, willpower (or my lack thereof) was this naughty little sprite that sat on my shoulder controlling my behaviour – and I could do nothing about it.

Interestingly, science seems to back this up. For many years, researchers were also saying that the strength of our self-discipline was something we’re born with and the amount we have to draw upon is finite. They also felt it was like a muscle, which, used too often throughout the day, became tired – cue my excuse for anything I didn’t want to do past 6pm! Now, however, newer evidence seems to be turning this long-held belief on its head.

I Think Therefore I Can

The Power To Change

Recent studies have found that not only is willpower a renewable resource but that simply presenting people with this fact – and the evidence to prove it – meant they could and would immediately change the way they acted and improve their chances of success. When people stop thinking of willpower as a nebulous force controlling them, but rather something they have the ability to influence, they persevere for longer at a task, have more belief in their ability to achieve things and are actually more likely to succeed.

My epiphany along these lines came when doing groundwork for a book I wrote on giving up alcohol for a month – just as you might be doing for ‘Dry January’. So many people thought I couldn’t abstain even for 30 days, yet I was determined to prove them wrong. Once I started telling myself that, I realised willpower and determination were actually the same force but that one of those words felt much more empowering. I knew I could be determined – I’ve run marathons and I meet deadlines every day for work. If I just made myself determined to stick to this particular goal, I could do it. That was my defining can-do moment and I’ve never since used the word willpower.

So, you might be reading this and wondering how you get to your determination? It could be as easy as using the following four steps from the latest thinking – starting, as I did, with changing your language.

I Think Therefore I Can

Step One: Find The Right Words

The language you use when making a change is very important in helping you achieve that change. People who said they ‘didn’t want’ to do something tempting such as eat a cake were eight times more likely to succeed than those who said they ‘couldn’t’ do that same thing, according to a study by the University of Houston. Using the words ‘don’t want’ told their brains this was a choice they were actively making, and the brain helps reinforce ideas it thinks will make you happy. What that meant was that instead of keeping them fixated on the cake they couldn’t have, it stopped them thinking about the cake, taking willpower out of the equation.

‘When you choose to make a change, the words you use to talk about it can mean either you come at it from a perspective of power or one of defeat; successful people always choose a position of power,’ says motivation coach Nisha Kuanda. ‘Words can empower you and choosing the right ones is an art.’

How To Do It

There are no words that work for everyone – choose the right ones for you. ‘It’s important to feel a strong emotional connection to the words you use; it ought to feel as if they motivate you as you say them,’ says Nisha. ‘The best words will make you feel as if you’re the driver in your own life, not a passenger.’ As we said, there’s no right or wrong here – but words you might consider eliminating include: should, must, need, might, willpower, if and luck, which all produce an element of doubt. Words to consider using instead include want, will, determined, committed, resolved and when, which convey a sense of power.

If you still harbour an inkling of doubt though, there’s another intriguing word switch to consider. Avoid using ‘I’ to talk about what you’re trying to do. Recent research has shown that if self-belief is low, using the word ‘you’ can be far more powerful. The reason, say the researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, is that speaking about yourself in the second person makes you feel as if you’re being encouraged by someone else.

So if, for example, you’re struggling on the last five minutes of your Couch to 5k plan, instead of saying ‘I can do this’ to yourself, say ‘You can do this’. If it feels right, it’ll create magic.

I Think Therefore I Can

Step Two: Embrace The ‘Not Yet’ Idea

When most of us set a goal, there are two possible outcomes: you succeed or you fail. However, new research on change at Stanford University in the US has generated the inspiring idea of a third option: you’re just not there yet.

It came about as part of a study into the mindset of achievers. Experts discovered that people who saw every step taken toward a goal as a positive, even steps that fail, were more likely to keep plugging away and eventually succeed. Embracing the idea that you never fail at a task, you just haven’t yet reached your goal, is one way of creating this way of thinking.

And it’s a very successful one. When schools adopted this idea by not using ‘failed’ grades and instead using ‘not yet’, pass marks on the pupils’ next tests increased exponentially. They didn’t see failing as the end – they just weren’t yet at the point where they could pass. ‘I love this idea,’ says Nisha.

‘One result of not seeing success straight away is that you might give up or self-sabotage what you’re trying to do, which can reaffirm the idea that you’re a failure. Creating a “not yet” space gives you the opportunity to pause, reflect and make gentle tweaks to your strategy that help make it more likely you’ll achieve your goal.’

How To Do It

As you progress on your journey, take time to reflect on, and even jot down, what’s working – and, just as importantly, look at what’s not. Remember, this isn’t failure, it’s just a sign you’ve not got things right yet. Reassess your plan and you will get there.

I Think Therefore I Can

Step 3: Know You Can Do It

Self-efficacy is the phrase psychologists use to describe the confidence in your ability to do something. When self-efficacy is high, success is more likely because when you believe you can do something, you tend to see obstacles as mere hurdles to hop over rather than absolute barriers. High self-belief also goes hand in hand with greater effort; for example, you’ll be more inclined to cook a healthy meal or spend time on your fledgling business when you arrive home tired if you believe you’re going to succeed as opposed to if you have doubts

How To Do It

‘The most important thing I tell my clients about self-efficacy is that you don’t have to believe absolutely you can do something for it to work. Simply scoring yourself seven out of ten for confidence is enough to make things happen,’ says health coach Lizi Jackson-Barrett.

So, ask yourself now, out of ten, how much do you believe you can succeed at what you want to do, whether it’s slimming down for summer, being able to run 5k or creating new healthy eating habits? If the answer is more than seven, that’s awesome – get started now! ‘If, however, you’re scoring less than this, think of it as climbing a ladder,’ says Lizi. ‘Every step takes you nearer the top, so ask yourself what could be the simplest thing you could do to get you one step closer to a seven? Then take that step. Ask again and again until you reach that seven or more.’

I Think Therefore I Can

Step 4: See Your Goal As Exciting

How we think about our ability to stick to a plan and stay motivated actually differs between cultures. In India, for example, completing a task that uses self-control and discipline is seen as rewarding and energising, rather than draining and depleting. As such, when researchers at the National University of Singapore looked at how long people spent on a task, those with this ‘effort is energising’ mentality were more likely to see things through.

How To Do It

Again, changing your language can help create this excitement. Can you see how using the phrase ‘When I start my business’ might create more energy than ‘If I start my business’? As well as that, find the reason behind why you want to achieve your goal and focus on it every single day – the why is so crucial as it provides the motivation to keep going. ‘It helps you establish why your goal is something you really want to achieve, and that increases your chances of finding the resolve and resources you need to achieve it,’ says Lizi. Set yourself clear, manageable steps and outcomes to get yourself energised and constantly moving forward.

There you have it, the four steps you need to take to create your new can-do mentality. But before you get started, we just want to point out you’re already closer to your goal than ever. Remember we said that arming people with the facts about willpower made them immediately more likely to develop that ‘I can do it!’ attitude? Well, all the researchers had to do to achieve this amazing result was to get people to read a short article explaining how willpower was completely under their control – just like this one! So, now you don’t just think you can… you know you can!
