Khloe Kardashian isn’t just hitting the gym very hard these days.
She’s also hitting back against critics who have a problem with this.
And there are PLENTY of those critics.
Just like all her sisters before her after that had babies, Khloe has made a public showing out of her insatiable desire to get back in the gym and shed all those pesky pregnancy pounds.
She recently grossed herself out by looking at her own huge butt, writing on her official app:
“When I saw myself in those first post-pregnancy paparazzi photos, I couldn’t believe how big my booty looked! I can’t wait to tone up again and get my body back to where it was.”
That remark was made earlier in May, and it appears as if Khloe is truly dedicated to this weight-loss mission.
Just about a month after giving birth to True Thompson, Kardashian updated fans on her workout status yesterday, making it clear that she’s pounding the weights just like boyfriend Tristan pounded a bunch of Instagram models last year.
“The beginning parts of working out kind of suck because you’re pushing your body so hard, you’re so tired. It’s much more difficult than you expect it to be,” the 33-year-old wrotes yesterday on Snapchat.
Khloe included the above photo of her stomach with this message and added
“I’ve been working out for 11 days now, I feel really good, but tired. My body is sore because it’s re-waking itself back up.”
This may be great for Khloe self-esteem and self-confidence.
But the workouts are not terrific for her reputation.
A bunch of social media users have taken the new mother to task for focusing so very much on burning calories and putting on muscle so soon after becoming a parent.
And Khloe is well aware of this criticism.
This is what she said about it last night:
What I’m annoyed about is I’ve read a couple of times on Twitter that they feel that I’m focusing too much on my body, but the truth is, I’ve worked out five or six days a week before I got pregnant and that’s my sanctuary and something I love to do.
I want to start doing that now and get back to my rhythm and in between feedings I want to find time to work out because that’s going to be my new normal.
A couple thoughts on this:
First, Khloe did say many years ago that going to the gym helped her feel better about her divorce from Lamar Odom.
Amidst the unfortunate news that Tristan Thompson has been cheating on her left and right, it’s very understandable that Khloe would once again seek peace and solitude and distraction in a workout routine.
Second, though, is the clarification that folks are not upset at Khloe for working out a lot.
That would be silly. It’s totally her business.
What’s irritating is how she (and Kylie and Kim and Kourtney before her) all talked incessantly to their fans and followers about how they just NEED to lose as much weight as quickly as possible now that they are no longer pregnant.
This attitude sets an unhealthy and unrealistic example for other women.
They don’t have personal chefs at home. They don’t have personal trainers. They don’t have the luxuries these new and very rich mothers can afford.
If Khloe feels better about herself in the gym, by all means, she should keep going to the gym.
She should just stop talking about it so much out of respect for other women who may have different priorities and who definitely have other lifestyles.
Oh, Khloe. We don’t normally say that someone was “asking for” what they got … but Khloe did literally ask for this.
So, the proud new mother took to Twitter to ask her followers to recommend new music for her workout. Music can be great motivation.
And she is getting roasted with playlists designed to motivate her … to leave Tristan Thompson.
Khloe Kardashian seems too enamored with her perfect baby True to think too much about all of the unsanctioned adventures that Tristan Thompson’s penis had during her pregnancy.
Reports claim that she is ready to forgive and forget.
Fans, however, have not forgotten.
They are eager to see Khloe make good decisions for herself, her baby, and her future. And they just can’t see staying with the serial cheater who humiliated her in front of a global audience working out well.
So, naturally, when the fitness-obsessed new mother asked for advice on new workout music, fans sprang into action.
Suggestions from fans were numerous and … quite frankly, hilarious:
“New Rules” by Dua Lipa, which is about not taking back a toxic boyfriend.
“Should’ve Cheated” by Keyshia Cole, which is about breaking up with a man who’s accused you of cheating and other wrongdoings when you willingly ignored reports that he was a cheater.
“Unfaithful” by Rihanna, which is very much about cheating.
“Before He Cheats” by Carrie Underwood, which is considered by many to be the ultimate betrayal anthem.
The suggestions continue:
“Jolene” by Dolly Parton, a song imploring a beautiful woman to decline her man’s overtures because she’s truly in love with him.
‘Who’s Bed Have Your Boots Been Under” by Shania Twain, about a woman who remains with her cheating man while being completely aware of it.
Taylor Swift’s entire Reputation album was recommended, though that may have just been shade against Khloe’s sister, Kim.
Someone else tweeted some advice.
“Cardi B’s album: Invasion of Privacy.”
“Listen to thru your phone, feel empowered, and then never ever take Tristan Thompson back!!!!!”
Obviously, whether or not to stay with Tristan or dump his ass and go back to people who understand the concepts of love and loyalty is ultimately up to Khloe.
But a lot of fans are concerned that she’s letting personal hang-ups dictate the course of her life.
Khloe, like … most people, honestly, is a child of divorce.
She was of course very attached to her father (who was of course Robert Kardashian and not O.J. Simpson) and may feel that divorce (or, in this case, a breakup) should be avoided when children are involved.
But she’s forgetting a couple of things:
One, and this is true for all situations, but it’s going to be worse for a child to grow up around two parents who can’t stand each other than it is for them to have divorced parents.
Two, True is a baby who doesn’t even know what a “parent” is. She’s a month old. This is the absolute best time in True’s life for Khloe and Tristan to split.
True is extremely cute and she deserves the best future that her parents can give her.
Khloe’s fans, in their own tongue-in-cheek way, hope that she can do that.
They also want what they believe is best for Khloe herself.
But Khloe certainly has more information about this than any of her fans might.
Perhaps she really does know best.
We hope that she at least got turned on to a couple of new songs.
