By 3 weeks ago

33-year-old Nicole Polizzi, otherwise known as Snooki, has outgrown her self-proclaimed nickname.

No longer a "Meatball," Polizzi shared a photo of herself on Instagram showing off her ripped shoulders and back.

"Time to get lean #FitMawma #iruntodrinkwine," she captioned the post, in which the mother of two can be seen doing a handstand.

"Everyone works out to be skinny," she said. "Everyone should work out to be strong... I want abs, biceps, and big muscly legs, that's my goal. Ever since I became a mom and saw all these strong, fit moms at the gym, it was inspirational. Skinny isn't really 'in' anymore."

Snooki explained her owns struggles with disordered eating in high school, stating that she would only eat "one salad a day, and then it became, like, one cracker a day, and then it became just one grape a day."

"And then just not eating at all for three days. It was a really, really bad time for me," she said.

Snooki knows that it's difficult to stay fit as a parent, the birth of her son motivated her to get healthy.

"When I had my son, I knew I didn't want to be an overweight, unhealthy mom," she said. "I wanted to be a good example, and show [my kids] that eating healthy and working out is fun. I started going to the gym every single day."
