In October, moviestar Kate Hudson gave birth to a baby girl named Rani Rose.

One of the frustrations which plagues new mothers in days following a pregnancy is how long it can often take for their bodies to look and feel like they want them to, even after the intense birthing process.


Television, movies and the media set unrealistic standards for how quickly and easily some women are able to lose their "baby weight" and return to looking "glamorous."

Perhaps that's why it's so refreshing when Hudson shared a picture of her post-baby body with an honest message about how hard the journey is and what her goals are for the future.


In her post, she wrote:

"So ...here we go! The routine with our baby is getting more familiar and I'm ready to start taking a little time in the day focusing on myself. For me that means my health. Why? Because I wanna be around a long time for these three kiddos of mine."




She went on:

"I know that some are curious about what that means and for all you moms (wether working or not working moms) it is the most challenging thing in the world to balance kids and personal time."
"Let's be honest, kids take the number one position and it's haaaaard to make the time for yourself."
"I've been doing a lot of research and I've spent my life time trying all kinds of new things that are focused on health and wellness."
"Because I am on a mission right now to get back to my fighting weight ;) and my strong body/mind back I want to bring you in on some of this journey."



She concluded her message on an inspirational note:

"If you want to follow a more in-depth of my to-dos, @prettyhappyofficial will be posting all kinds of fun tidbits from exercises we are loving to foods/recipes we [love] and meditation practices I just can't live without MY GOAL: I will be shooting a film in the spring and I'm looking to shed 25lbs."
"I'd like to try new workouts and eat as healthy as I can. I wanna do all this and keep up milk production, raise my kids, work everyday, make time for my man, have girlfriend time and stay sane!"
"I know that this sounds more like a new year resolution but after Thanksgiving and everyone thanking their health, I feel motivated to keep that up. Much love and hope everyone's Having an amazing start to the holidays!"



Mothers on the internet were so grateful to see a realistic picture of Hudson's postpartum journey.

If there's anything that will make Hudson feel her fan's love and support, it has to be this outpouring of well-wishes.

Her goal to drop 25 pounds will not be an easy one, but at least she knows she's not in it alone.

Sometimes you only need to experience something once, to know it's a never again situation.

In fact, knowing when to say no is one of life's wisest choices.

Many of us sometimes fantasize about what we would do to our worst enemies, especially in the moments when they're actively making our lives worse.

While most of us would never actually do any of the things that we contemplate instead of screaming at that super annoying person at the office, we do get pretty creative with the ideas.

I grew up poor, and I remember the little things that made me smile when we just happened to have enough that week.

The little things that a truly rich person would not think twice about.

Ah, the luxury of it.

What spells luxury for you?
