Having a baby is no easy feat, but being able to still look fit and hot despite having not one, but two children, is almost impossible, however, Jessica Alba is proof that it is doable.

The lovely actress and mother of two is on the cover of the June 2015 issue of Shape magazine and she looks amazing.

Jessica, known for acting a lot of bad/tough girl roles, flaunts her washboard abs in a bikini.

In the magazine, the sexy mama dishes on how she manages to stay fit despite being a working mother and also reveals that she had insecurities before she had her babies, but that she is completely over that now.

On her workout strategy, she says;

“I have to break a sweat or I don’t feel like I’ve gotten anything done. When I only have 30 minutes, I’ll do a series of burpees, mountain climbers, squat jumps, planks, and a few sun salutations. But I’m not going to lie. Working out sucks. Which is why I love taking classes, because I’m surrounded by other people and that keeps me motivated and accountable. These days, I do power yoga with light weights in a 105-degree room, so it’s a mix of hot yoga and strength training. I also spin. The key for me is good music, like 2 Chainz, Lil Wayne, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Beyoncé.”

On her diet and biggest food addiction, Jessica reveals;

“I was never a big breakfast person — I used to just pound coffee and a banana in the morning — but recently I started making this shake using vegan protein powder, matcha green tea powder, a banana, coconut water, and ice. I drink it before a workout and it doesn’t make me feel too full. Or I can have it after-ward and feel satisfied until lunch. I’m addicted to popcorn. I eat it throughout the day. I’m a scatterbrain with lots of things to do at once, and eating popcorn helps me concentrate. It’s my way of dealing with my mind wandering off.”

This just shows that there is no excuse to not workout, even if there is no time, let us try to squeeze out at least fifteen to thirty minutes to exercise and sweat.
