Carrie Underwood: Indulgence is not a problem

Carrie Underwood’s workout gear has taken over her wardrobe, as she is “only ever a layer away from a look that can transition from a street to sweat session”.

Country singer Carrie Underwood thinks “it’s okay to indulge”, as she is convinced having a healthy relationship with food is the most important factor of any diet.

The 32-year-old musician gave birth to son Isaiah on 27 February (2015) and a few months later during her appearance at the CMT Music Awards in Nashville, Tennessee on 10 June (2015), she wowed with an extremely fit and slender post-baby body.

But Carrie did not achieve her enviable looks by restricting what she eats.

"I eat to feel good and sometimes that means it's okay to indulge,” she told Us Weekly magazine. “From time to time, I'll sip on red wine to unwind and relax at the end of the day, or when I'm with my girlfriends."

Carrie shares the same mentality when it comes to exercise.

Sticking to a regular fitness regimen does not occur to her as an oppressive duty.

"Rather than plan my day around my workout, I'll fit it in however I can,” she explained. "Between naps, feedings or errands, it's all about being prepared to jump in wherever, whenever."

Carrie loves to workout so much, the star ensures she is always prepared for a good sweat.

In fact she is so committed to fitness, the activewear collection in her closet is slowly taking over her entire wardrobe.

"I'm only ever a layer away from a look that can transition from a street to sweat session,” she smiled, sharing her favourite type of exercise at the moment. "Right now I'm really into Tabata… I’ll switch up each day to keep it fun. It’s a few minutes of intense activity that I can do anywhere – then move on to conquer the rest of my day."

But she doesn’t attack her daily schedule without some breakfast in her belly, as Carrie has tasty go-to meals on hand every morning.

"It's so important to start the day with something fresh and tasty," she shared. "Right now I like to make oatmeal or a tofu scramble with whatever I have in the fridge.

"I like to know where all the food that I'm putting in my body is coming from. That's why I love being able to start each week with a trip to the supermarket.”
