Model mom Kate Upton is working to lose her baby weight this year, and she's not afraid to get candid about her struggle to eat healthy and work out.
The new mom, who welcomed her first daughter, Genevieve, with husband Justin Verlander in November, opened up about her journey to get back in shape in a post shared to her Instagram on Saturday.
"Getting in a little cardio with a family beach walk," she captioned the post. "I’m not going to lie to you and tell you I’ve been working out and eating healthy. It’s so hard over the holidays. Traveling and enjoying time with my family! I’m trying not to get down on myself. Instead use it as motivation to get right back at it!
"I have a long way to go to lose this baby weight but feeling determined for 2019!"
Kate has been very open about her struggles with body image as a young model and the path she took to learn to love fitness and her workouts with celebrity trainer Ben Bruno. The pair even teamed up outside of the gym this past year to create the Strong4Me program, a 12-week fitness plan with 30-minutes workouts that people can do at home with limited equipment.
"The Strong4Me fitness program is geared towards busy women on-the-go of all ages,” Kate explained. “It was important to me to share the exact program I’ve personally been using with Ben because it has been sustainable and helps me to feel strong, confident, and healthy."
