Hot yoga today! #happyandhealthy πŸ™πŸ’ͺ✌️
Six months no beer. #GOTG Kinda douchey to post this but my brother made me.
Last night after a 17hour day running around London with the @VictoriasSecret #Angels and attending the #BFAs, I squeezed in a midnight work out with my trainer #JustinGelband to get ready for the #VSFashionShow (Dedication....or insanity? πŸ’ͺπŸ‘Š)
One day I'll get the therapy I need. Until then... #HeavyIronFightsThePain #CheaperThanAShrink #NoFannyPacks My only drawback is f*cked up calloused hands.
Monday with @gunnarfitness!!! I am determined to get my pre-hamptons, pre- sympathy kourtney pregnancy weight off. Nothing good comes easy. Why do I blame Kourt though?!? Lol
