Bristol Palin may have only given birth less than two months ago, but she is on a mission to shed her ‘last few pregnancy pounds’ amid the bitter custody battles she is embroiled in with her ex fiances Levi Johnston and Dakota Meyer.
The 25-year-old took to Instagram on Monday to share a photo of herself grabbing her morning weight loss shake before walking out the door with her six-week-old daughter Sailor Grace in tow.
‘Exercising and #310shake to lose the last few pregnancy lbs! @310nutrition #sp #fitnessgoals [sic],’ she wrote, tagging the shake company 310 Nutrition.

It has been a stressful couple of months for Bristol who is involved in not one, but two custody battles over her children Tripp and Sailor.
After Bristol and her ex-fiance Dakota separately announced Sailor’s birth on December 24, one day after she was welcomed into the world, the alleged father filed paperwork asking a judge for joint custody of the little girl. However, Bristol has never confirmed that he is the father of her baby girl.
The Medal of Honor recipient is now being forced to take a paternity test as part of the former couple’s increasingly bitter custody battle over her new baby.

Cafeteria catch-up! Bristol shared this image of her seven-year-old son Tripp and his half-sister Sailor enjoying lunch at his school on Thursday
Court documents seen by Daily Mail Online reveal that Meyer’s bid for joint custody in a suit filed in Kentucky and Alaska has stalled pending the results of the paternity test.
Meanwhile, her seven-year-old son Tripp’s father Levi filed court paper on January 26 asking a judge to reduce his child support payments after Bristol claimed he owned more than $80,000 in unpaid support.
In court papers seen exclusively by Daily Mail Online, 25-year-old Levi alleges that his earnings have dropped since a temporary child support order was granted in 2010 and based on his estimated income, which was in excess of $100,000.
According to Levi, who was ordered to pay $1,750 a month for Tripp to a then 20-year-old Bristol, he no longer makes anywhere near six figures.
However, despite her issues with her exes, Bristol is keeping her focus on her children. The proud mom often shares photos of her kids on Instagram, and the past few days were no exception.

Mom’s love: Bristol also shared this sweet image of a growing Sailor Grace last Monday
On Sunday, Bristol shared a precious snapshot of a growing Sailor stretched out on her changing table, seemingly smiling for the camera.
‘Can’t get enough of this peanut,’ she captioned the picture. The day before, Bristol took her little girl to work with her at Alaska Dermatology Laser and Skin Cancer Center in Anchorage, where she has been employed for more than six years.
‘It’s bring your baby to work day today,’ Bristol wrote when she posted a photo of herself cuddling a sleeping Sailor in her arms.
The doting mother and her newborn have been making their rounds in recent weeks, and on Thursday evening she snapped a photo of Tripp cuddling his half-sister in what appears to be his school cafeteria.
Sharing the sweet snap with her 99,000 followers, Bristol commented: ‘Lunch with a loved one at school today,’ adding several heart emojis.

Bristol did not indicate whether she was the one taking the photo, however last month she revealed that she was returning to work after just one month of maternity leave.
And last week, Bristol and her sisters were on-hand to help their mother Sarah Palin as she publicly supported Donald Trump in Iowa as he continues his presidential campaign.
In an image shared on her Instagram account, Bristol captured her mother taking part in a TV interview in Iowa, revealing in the caption that her sister Willow had done their mother’s hair, while her sister Piper had been responsible for Sarah’s outfit.
Luckily for her friends, family – and dedicated social media following – Bristol’s travel plans and her decision to return to work haven’t stopped her from sharing regular updates of her newborn baby’s day-to-day life online.
Although some people may think a one-month long maternity leave is too short, Bristol’s mother Sarah Palin only took three days off after her youngest son Trig was born with Down syndrome in 2008.
