After welcoming her second addition to the family, a son named Jacob, Carrie Underwood is looking forward to ‘bouncing back.’ As you may know, during pregnancy, women tend to gain a bit of extra weight and it seems like the same happened in the case of the country singer.
That being said, Carrie took to social media earlier today to tell her followers al about her weight loss plan.
She admitted that it has been really difficult to get back in shape and love the way she looks at this stage.
‘I’m going to be honest, ‘bouncing back’ after Jacob has been much more difficult than after having Isaiah and I have been pretty hard on myself lately. I go to the gym and I cannot run as fast or as far. I cannot lift as much weight or do as many reps as I could a year ago. I really want to feel like myself again…for my body to feel the way I know it can,’ Underwood wrote.

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
She went on to add that ‘I was working out today and I realized that for the past 11 (ish) months, my body’s not belonged to me. It was the perfect home for Jacob. And even now it still belongs to him every time he drinks his milk.’
The woman then promised her many followers that she will start focusing more on what her body ‘can’ do and not what it ‘can’t,’ especially now that she has been getting ready for all kinds of red carpets.
Carrie had Jacob with husband Mike Fisher back in January.
Before that, they had also been the parents of Isaiah, who is now 4!
