Carrie Underwood Opens Up About Her Love of Exercise: ‘I Want Longevity’
Carrie Underwood just weighed in on her desire to get fit and why she works out at all.
Underwood weighed in on everything in his most recent piece to People magazine.
She started it all by talking about her exercise mindset and how it has changed over the years.
According to Underwood, “I feel like early in my career I trained more to be a certain size or fit into a certain aesthetic that I thought I wanted to be.”
But “now I feel like I’m training more to be strong and have energy and longevity.”
For those who don’t know, Underwood is a mother to two boys, Jacob, 3, and Isaiah, 7, and as a result, she finds it even more important to stay in shape.
All of this in an effort to ensure that she is in their lives as an active presence for as long as possible.
“It’s really playing the long game, isn’t it?” she joked at the point of sale in the middle of her conversation.
“I worked a lot and got frustrated because it wasn’t the results I wanted.”
“I feel like now, at this point in my life, you really learn that it’s a way of life, it’s balance. It’s mostly about taking care of yourself.”
However, she never adheres to a strict schedule when she’s home with her boys, because “when I’m home, I feel like a mom. I do laundry, I pack lunches, I always clean.
“So when I’m on the road and living on a bus or in a hotel room, I don’t have to do all that stuff, so that frees up some time. My schedule is still very regulated and there is everything I do, but my mornings are a little more flexible.
