The Dancing With the Stars pro, who welcomed her first child, son Shai, with fiancé Maksim Chmerkovskiy earlier this month, took to Instagram on Wednesday to give fans a behind-the-scenes peek at what her life has been like since becoming a mother.
In the pic, the 30-year-old dancer can be seen breast pumping as her glam squad gets her ready for the day. Before she shared the snap with her followers, Murgatroyd used a photo editing app to censor her right breast with a yellow star emoji.
"Multitasking mum duties," she captioned it. "Can't stop the pump. I'm working on an exciting new project that I can't wait to share with you soon! ❤."
"I think I'm doing ok.... and I'm actually fine with the rate at which my body is shrinking back," she captioned a mirror selfie. "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," she continued. "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. Day 1 I couldn't do a sit up, here's day 17 and I'm doing 70+."
"Ladies, we all have to start somewhere," she added. "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."
