With a schedule as tiring as Carrie Underwood’s, it very well may be difficult to incorporate fitness into her daily routine. Fortunately, the busy mother of two has figured out how to ensure she gets her exercise in, regardless of whether her workouts may some of the time be a bit unconventional.
“I exercise when I can,” Underwood told InStyle. “Sometimes I’ll do it seven days in a row; other times it’s only twice a week. I take the opportunity when I have it, knowing that some weeks I won’t be able to exercise as much because I am not the 5 a.m. workout type. I need my coffee and breakfast first, and then I get my children on their way, so I’m a mid-morning workout person. But I weave fitness into my day.
“I always take the stairs, which firms your legs, and at home, I’ll do lunges as I go from one room to the next,” she continued. “No one is judging you in your own house, so why not make chores active? I turn it into a game like if I’m picking up my kids’ toys off the floor, I’ll do a squat each time I lower myself down. These little moves keep up my energy, especially on days when I can’t get in a full workout.”
Underwood subtleties a greater amount of her workouts in her new book, Find Your Path: Honor Your Body, Fuel Your Soul, and Get Strong With the Fit52 Life, as well as her new application, fit52.
“That’s why Fit52, the health plan featured in my book, Find Your Path, and in my new fit52 app that I developed with my trainer Eve Overland, takes a week-by-week approach,” Underwood explained. “When you have 52 chances a year to make it a healthy week, you’re less inclined to scold yourself over one bad day. It’s designed to help you stay on track while allowing you some grace.”
Underwood just commenced her book tour in support of Find Your Path, which is the reason she was from home when Nashville’s deadly tornado descended on the city, killing at any event 22 individuals and destroying many buildings and homes.
