Instead of focusing on excuses why moms can't get in shape, Kang, 37, is encouraging women to zero in on the reasons why they want to get fit.

"The reason is way more important than the excuse," Kang told TODAY. "When you find your why, you can overcome your excuse."

Kang appeared in the original, controversial photo in 2013, dressed in a sports bra and shorts alongside her three sons, including one who was just 8 months old. The slogan "What's your excuse?" was emblazoned on the top of the image. Critics accused Kang of being a fat-shaming bully.

The 1 Problem With Traveling With a Toddler That Took Me by Total Surprise

  The 1 Problem With Traveling With a Toddler That Took Me by Total Surprise Before venturing on my first flight with my 2 1/2-year-old son, I had a lot of concerns. My overactive brain thought about every problem that could likely occur . . . except for the one that actually did. Sure, having a toddler scream and kick on a plane would have been awful, but having him struggle through the time change was worse. Instead of this hurdle being over in a few short hours, it lasted days.Two hours to an adult really isn't a big deal, but to a highly regimented toddler, it was something that, in hindsight, I shouldn't have underestimated.

The image was captioned 'What's your excuse?' and many mother took offense with the image, saying it fat - shamed those who weren't as thin as Kang. Kang has since changed her message , releasing an updated image recently with a new tagline: 'What's your reason?'

"What's kept me going is really my reason. This represented me a lot better right now in stage two of my life, focusing on the why," said Kang, who runs the non-profit "Fitness Without Borders."

The fitness fanatic and author noted that she's probably 10 pounds heavier than she was five years ago and that she is more flexible and forgiving with her workout regimen. Instead of exercising 60 minutes four-to-five times a week, some days it will be closer to 30 minutes.

"Fitness has always been a priority. Instead of it being number one, it's probably number four but I still get it done," she said.

This exhausted mom begging for her husband’s help is all of us .
Being a parent is tiring. Being a mom is downright grueling.Not only are you dealing with sleepless nights and thousands of diaper changes (though it feels like millions), but you’re doing all that while recovering from birth and fielding all kinds of “helpful advice” from friends, family and strangers on the street. And don’t even get us started on the special kind of hell that moms struggling with breastfeeding go through.
