Why Carrie Underwood Stopped Working Out ‘To Be a Certain Size’
As a mother of two, Carrie Underwood’s fitness goals “have changed” as she has to balance her life on the go.
The 39-year-old “American Idol” alumnus interviewer She pays more attention to her body I think And not just what it looks like.
“I feel like earlier in my career, I was working more to achieve a certain size or fit a certain aesthetic that I thought I wanted to be,” she says. “Now I feel like I’m working out more to get stronger, more energetic and live longer.”
Especially now that she and her husband, Mike Fisher, have sons Jacob, 3, and Isaiah, 7, Underwood says she’s “on a constant game” when it comes to working out.
“I practiced a lot and got frustrated because it wasn’t the result I wanted. I feel like now, at this point in my life, you really understand that it’s a way of life, it’s a balance. Overall, taking care of Be yourself.”
In fact, child care has been a top priority for Underwood over the past few years — but that’s about to change now that he’s preparing to embark on the second leg of his “denim and rhinestones” tour.
“When I’m at home, I feel like a mom. I do the laundry, pack lunch, and always clean,” she explains. “So when I’m on the road, when I’m staying on the bus or in a hotel room, I don’t have to do all these things, so I have some time.”
While her “schedule remains busy” while she’s on tour, Underwood says her mornings are “a little more flexible” and she tries to work out even if she doesn’t have a lot of equipment.
“We have an app called fit52, and I’m excited to have it in my phone pocket,” she said. “So can someone tell me how to use the least amount of facilities because it depends on the hotel we’re staying at or who we need to work with.”
She continued, “We’re just making it happen when it can happen, and how it happens.”
After opening up about her complicated relationship with food and exercise, Underwood launched her fitness app fit52 in 2020, along with a workout manual and activewear brand.
After her big win on “American Idol” in 2005, the singer said she cut calories and started exercising excessively after reading negative comments about her body online.
After quickly realizing that the intensive diet plan was making her “feel terrible,” Underwood turned to a simpler approach to fitness — which of course included red wine.
