Peta Murgatroyd, Post-Baby

Instagram

Peta Murgatroyd is working on her fitness, just over two weeks after giving birth to her first child.

The Dancing With the Stars pro posted her second post-pregnancy selfie, which shows her wearing a white and purple tie-dyed nursing bra and black mini skirt, Saturday and revealed she had recently returned to the gym. Murgatroyd gave birth to her and co-star Maksim Chmerkovskiy's son Shai on Jan. 4.

"Love thy self ♥ #Day17 postpartum," she wrote. "I think I'm doing ok....and I'm actually fine with the rate at which my body is shrinking back. After 2 days back at the gym I'm feeling like the old Peta again. I definitely don't have my 6 pack, and I still have excess skin and rolls on my belly, however I feel good. After all, slow and steady wins the race!"

 

"I knew I needed to get back into the gym for my own sanity, but I also remind myself (as does Maks) that I still need to take it easy," Murgatroyd added. "I cannot jump yet and still can't run a mile, but the exercises I've planned out are a good start. Honestly, the hardest part for me is getting my core strength back.

She said that on the first day after giving birth, she "couldn't do a sit up" but that "here's day 17 and I'm doing 70+."

"Ladies, we all have to start somewhere...being an athlete I pride myself on having a lean, strong physique, so believe me this has been a challenge to work through, but as long as you have a loving support network around you, you will be fine ♥ #theresnothinglikehardwork," she said.

Murgatroyd shared her first post-pregnancy selfie 11 days after welcoming Shai, saying she left the hospital looking five months pregnant and that her son is "worth every pound."
