Getting the Pre-Baby Body Back

New mom goes back to work

Actor Zoe Saldana (“Star Trek,” “Guardians of the Galaxy”) is getting back into fighting shape eight months after giving birth to twins.

This is her workout selfie and her words of motivation:

“Almost there! It’s been difficult but so rewarding. I feel strong. All it takes is determination! Mommies we can all do it, damn it!!!”
Saldana welcomed her sons Cy Aridio and Bowie Ezio last Thanksgiving with husband Marco Perego Saldana, and has been open about her struggle to get her pre-baby body back via Facebook posts.

In one post she shared: “Yesterday we took our friend out for sushi and I swear I ate everything AND the kitchen sink. Right before I started my typical routine of self-loathing Marco looked at me and said ‘Z, it’s ok. Start again tomorrow.’ ”

“I loved him for that, he reminded me there always tomorrow to make right what you have undone today. I’m also reminded that this is for life and not a temporary fix. So why am I going to add more stress to my life by putting a deadline on my healthy lifestyle.”

You go, girl!
