After giving birth to her third child — and first daughter — on October 2, Kate Hudson is now looking toward the future as she sets her post-pregnancy health goals.

On Thursday, the 39-year-old actress took to her Instagram to share a snap of herself donning a pair of leggings and a sports bra while posing in front of a full-length mirror for a selfie. In the photo, the mother-of-three is smiling at the mirror as she holds her phone in front of her, capturing a full shot of her post-baby body.

The Almost Famous star paired the picture with a lengthy message in which she discusses her health goals for the future.

“Because I am on a mission right now to get back to my fighting weight and my strong body/mind back I want to bring you in on some of this journey,” she wrote in the caption.

She went on to explain that she will be shooting a new film, starting in the spring, and is looking to shed 25 pounds by then. She told her Instagram followers that she will be sharing her journey through her “Pretty Happy” Instagram account, which is a page where she shares fitness tips and other health-related content.

So…here we go! The routine with our baby is getting more familiar and I’m ready to start taking a little time in the day focusing on myself. For me that means my health. Why? Because I wanna be around a long time for these three kiddos of mine. I know that some are curious about what that means and for all you moms (wether working or not working moms) it is the most challenging thing in the world to balance kids and personal time. Let’s be honest, kids take the number one position and it’s haaaaard to make the time for yourself. I’ve been doing a lot of research and I’ve spent my life time trying all kinds of new things that are focused on health and wellness. Because I am on a mission right now to get back to my fighting weight 😉 and my strong body/mind back I want to bring you in on some of this journey. If you want to follow a more in-depth of my to-dos, @prettyhappyofficial will be posting all kinds of fun tidbits from exercises we are loving to foods/recipes we ❤️ and meditation practices I just can’t live without ????‍♀️ MY GOAL: I will be shooting a film in the spring and I’m looking to shed 25lbs. I’d like to try new workouts and eat as healthy as I can. I wanna do all this and keep up milk production, raise my kids, work everyday, make time for my man, have girlfriend time and stay sane! ???? I know that this sounds more like a new year resolution but after Thanksgiving and everyone thanking their health, I feel motivated to keep that up. Much love and hope everyone’s Having an amazing start to the holidays! ????

Hudson did her first cycling workout since she welcomed Rani Rose, her daughter with Danny Fujikawa, the day after Thanksgiving, as People reported. For the workout session on Friday, Hudson jumped on her Peloton bike, which consists of an at-home spin bike that includes live streams of classes.

“Okay, on this Thanksgiving day, I’m thankful for Peloton,” Hudson said on her Instagram Story. “I’m about to have my first ride in months, so excited.”
