Kerry Washington showed off flawless toned body and gorgeous skin in an emerald green one piece with blue gym bra insert for a subtle contrast
Scandal star, Kerry Washington in an interview with Self Magazine revealed she doesn’t understand society’s obsession with new mothers “getting back” to their pre-pregnancy weight.
“I’ve been really focused on not being ‘back’ to anything, but being the best version of myself right now.
Kerry who gave birth to her first child, Isabelle Amarachi, in April 2014, cares about feeling good, not checking off a pre-baby-body box.
Read the interview below:
"A few weeks ago, my manager asked: ‘Do you feel like you’re back? I feel like you’re back,’" Washington shares. "She meant it as a total compliment, but we had this great conversation where I was like, ‘You know what? I try really hard not to use that language, because it’s not about going backward in life.’ I’ve been really focused on not being ‘back’ to anything, but being the best version of myself right now. My body is the site of a miracle now. I don’t want to be pre-miracle.”
Speaking of that little miracle, Washington tells the magazine that her daughter, Isabelle, offers some great motivation for early-morning workouts. Um, can we borrow her?
“I try to get it in so I can be back with my kid early," the actress says. "I have to take care of myself in order to live life the way I want to. It’s important to have rest days. But in the long run, if I don’t work out for, like, three days, I feel worse, not better.”
