If there is one celebrity bod that we envy it's Jessica Alba's. The flawless 31-year-old actress and mom of two (TWO!!!) has so much going for her, including a new book called The Honest Life: Living Naturally and True to You.

As happy as we are that this Mama Latina has been so successful, we can't help but hate on her banging post-baby bod! Think she spends hours at the gym or has a personal trainer to look this great?

Here's her surprise: Alba told Women's Health that she HATES working out and it turns out her secret to looking hot is do-able, whether you're a mom or not! According to Alba,  her exercises routines have to be fun: 

I like doing dance classes. That's fun. Like hip hop class, mixed with like core pilates-type exercises... Anything where I have to do something but I can get my mind off of doing it, that's so much better for me than anything that's repetitive. Or the music has to be loud and I have to be moving.

That sounds easy enough, but let's be honest, sometimes moms don't have time to attend a class, so Alba prioritizes her time and has a quick strategy to get exercise in. She says she uses her treadmill at home to sprint for a minute, walk for 30 seconds and alternates that for 20 to 30 minutes.

And although exercise is good for you to stay in shape, Alba's ultimate de-stressing secret are her daughters, 4-year-old Honor and 1-year old Haven.  As a mom, she knows her daughters are not going to stay little forever, and says that they relax her by bringing her joy and happiness. Aw!

Mama Alba makes being a mom sound so pleasant and it's great to hear that her kids are her number one priority. It's also admirable that she's honest about her fitness routine which is do-able and not as difficult or time consuming as it would seem! If you're looking for pointers to get fit again, then we suggest you follow Alba's exercise habits because it's clearly done wonders for her figure!
