After having kids, my body is different. The belly button isn’t as tight, other things are flatter – it’s just different. I’m cool with it. The things I don’t like, I can change with some exercise. I get that. Finding time to do that exercise is where things get a bit tricky. I don’t complain about my body though. I know that pregnancy takes a different toll on different people. For the most part, I came through it all unscathed. So, no complaining here. I’m also not like, “hey y’all, don’t I look bomb?” Number one, I don’t talk like that. Number two, it’s rude. Number three, I don’t think I look bomb. Nicole Murphy is bomb. She’s had 5 kids and looks like this:
Did she have help? I don’t know.
When I heard about another mom with a banging body I was intrigued. Mostly because everyone was talking about how much they didn’t like her. Maria Kang posted this picture on Facebook and pissed off a lot of people.
So, yeah. This is the photo that caused all the drama. From what everyone has been saying it’s more the “what’s your excuse” than the photo. I get both sides of it. I get the people that support her and use her as their motivation to get in better shape. I can see taking the attitude of , “she did it and so can I.” I can also see the side of the people who are annoyed… kinda. It can seem pretty braggy to put yourself out there with that caption. To the people that were so heated with this woman though, I had to say, “do you know her?” “was she talking to you personally?” I didn’t understand why they were so passionate about it all.
Maria posted this picture on her Facebook page over a year ago and it just recently went viral with people sharing it like crazy. It’s been shared so much that she’s garnered national attention. I had been hearing about her but then I saw her on Bethenny’s talk show and watched people suck their teeth and roll their eyes at her. It was almost funny. You would have thought that she’d emailed the picture directly to them singing nani nani boo boo! At the end of the day, she could have used different words to not make it so snarky but, I’m not really mad at her. I do wonder how the heck she has enough time to work out like that? She has three small children and runs two businesses. Where is that workout time coming in at?
What about you? Are you offended by this picture and it’s message?Am I being too easy on her?
