If just giving birth to her second child wasn’t enough, in Blake Lively’s latest Instagram post the star has declared she isn’t going to slack off a minute longer when it comes to eating her way back to shape — inspiring all of us to start our New Year’s diets early.

Video of the Day

Lively, who posted a pic to Instagram of her kitchen counter covered in delicious, healthy offerings from meal-delivery service Epicured early Monday morning, is showing us that there’s no better time to start your diet and fitness New Year’s resolutions than right now.

“New Years resolution started early — I WILL fit into my jeans again gall darnet,” the celeb declares in her post. While many stars post product placements to Instagram, Lively attests the shot is just her sharing her struggle to get fit again. “This is not an ad,” she says. “This is me getting it up for healthy food.”

Not only is Lively’s post the push we need to start on our New Year’s diet resolutions before the holiday damage is done in the first place, but it’s the second post Lively has shared of her experience of getting back in the swing of things post-baby.

#FitnessFriday current mood. @donsaladino gives me reason to hide!....

This past weekend, Lively shows even more of her human side by posting a picture of her hiding from her trainer under a pile of fitness blocks with the caption: “#FitnessFriday current mood @donsaladino gives me reason to hide!” Showing us that even celebs want to dodge working out sometimes.

So while you may be inclined to let the holidays melt your willpower, if you’re looking for that extra push to get started today, take a cue from our new favorite fit baby mama.
