Carrie Underwood Vows to Start ‘Appreciating’ All Her Body Can Do After Struggle to ‘Bounce Back’ After Birth

Just two months after welcoming her second child into the world, and just 10 days after celebrating her 36th birthday, country music superstar, Carrie Underwood, is back in the gym.

As Dearly previously reported, on January 21, Underwood and her husband, Mike Fisher, welcomed a son, Jacob Bryan Fisher. They are already parents to another little boy, 4-year-old Isaiah.

Last month, Underwood’s husband said in a podcast that he is amazed by his wife:

“No one works as hard [as her]. You should see her schedule. I’m like, ‘I don’t know how you do what you do, because I thought I had a busy schedule.’ Fortunately we have a few months off, obviously with the newborn. We both love being at home. We’re homebodies. When you travel so much, it gets tough.”

He continued:

“She won’t ask for any help. She wants to do everything on her own. I’m like, ‘It’s OK to ask for help, if you want to sleep,’ and she’s like, ‘No, this is my job. This is what I’m supposed to do.’ She’s a champ that way.”

Now Underwood is opening up about the struggle she has been having “bouncing back” after giving birth to Jacob.

I’m going to be honest, “bouncing back” after having Jacob has been much more difficult than after I had Isaiah and I’ve been pretty hard on myself lately. I go into the gym and I can’t run as fast or as far. I can’t lift as much weight or do as many reps as I could a year ago. I just want to feel like myself again…for my body to feel the way that I know it can. As I was working out today, I realized that for the past 11(ish) months, my body has not belonged to me. It was a perfect home for Jacob. And even now it belongs to him every time he drinks his milk. As I prepare for red carpets and for life on tour, right now I make a promise to myself to start appreciating what my body CAN do and stop focusing on what it can’t. I promise to stop analyzing every angle and every curve and every pound and every meal. I’m going to keep staying the path because it is a journey and as long as I’m always working towards my goals, one day I’ll reach them. I’m going to take it day by day, smile at the girl in the mirror, and work out because I love this body and all it has done and will continue to do! #bodyafterbaby #fitmom #healthy #staythepath @caliabycarrie

However, the singer is making a promise to herself to start appreciating all her body can still do and has done:

And many of Underwood’s followers understood where the singer was coming from.

However, it’s like one commenter said, “Being a momma is THE ultimate role… You’ll get back to you!”
