It is no secret Khloe Kardashian has been working hard to maintain her fitness the last few years and she took to Instagram on Friday to show us just how much her work and dedication is paying off. Khloe revealed her “baby abs” in the picture and then posted another Instagram comparing her body now to two years ago.
Of the difference in how she looks and feels, Khloe said:
“Looking back at pictures of myself I didn’t realize at the time how unhealthy my lifestyle actually was. People love to call me the fat one but as weird as it sounds I still don’t think I would consider myself fat back then. Definitely overweight and unhealthy, yes. About two years ago I decided to turn to fitness as a form of therapy and as a stress reliever. I started slow and eventually I started working out 4 to 5 days a week. We all have to start somewhere and doing something is better than nothing at all. Start small so you don’t get discouraged and give up. Remember it is all about consistency. There are no quick fixes if you want long-term results. Working out is a huge part of my life now. I genuinely enjoy sweating out my frustrations and living a healthier life. My workouts are not all about vanity. They are about clarity for my mind and soul. We all have different journeys in life, make sure your journey is for you and you alone. Remember in the end the turtle won the race. Slow and steady. Dedication and tenacity.”
We love how Khloe keeps it real and points out that she started out slow and her journey wasn’t about vanity but health and wellbeing.
However, we do need to advise Khloe on the “squat test” when it comes to wearing fitness tights/leggings/yoga pants.
My best friend and I were discussing this a few days ago while in a sportswear shop, and we agreed that anyone who buys leggings/ sports pants needs to learn about the squat test.
What is the squat test? When buying said fitness pants, try them on and when in the changeroom squat down to see if your pants become see through when the material stretches. If they become see through, don’t buy them!
We don’t want people behind us seeing what we had for breakfast (and heaven forbid, our lady bits) in the middle of a downward dog at yoga, do we? And it might also be a good idea to wear underwear (yes, Khloe we are talking to you). If you don’t want a VPL (visible panty line) you can always buy seamless thongs/g strings.
What do you think?
