Carrie Underwood is lean and mean in the gym, but after after her son, Isaiah in February she kicked her body into high gear and shed her baby weight pounds. “I’m vegan and I love bread, but recently, I started making dinner a breadless meal,’ Carrie told Shape Magazine. “I’ll have a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast, and I’ll make a sandwich on Ezekiel bread for lunch, but in the evening I’ll have protein and vegetables and no bread. When I wake up, my belly is flat!”
She’s an inspiration. She made fitness a big fitness transition following her American Idol win. She’s made 30 minutes her magic number.
“After I had Isaiah, my goal was to take control of my body again. I was lucky: I gained only 30 pounds, which is the recommended amount, and I exercised throughout my pregnancy. I did have a C-section, which meant waiting six weeks before working out. Within 10 days, though, I was able to begin walking slowly on the treadmill and around my neighborhood. It felt so good to be active! When I got the OK from my doctor, I started exercising with my trainer. Now we box and we hike trails, among other things. I like to continually mix up my routines to stay motivated. But my favorite workout is Tabata, which I can do at home in about a half hour. I’m in love with it! It’s hard, but it really works. I choose seven different exercises, like squats, lunges, or push- ups, and do eight rounds of each—20 seconds on, 20 seconds off for eight rounds. It really revs up my metabolism. When I’m done, I can handle anything.”
And Carrie’s not the only one loving her body, Lea Michele is in love with her booty! “”I love my butt. It is a showstopper,” she told Marie Claire.
