Carrie Underwood Daily Routine

Carrie Underwood follows a daily routine that comprises her fitness plans including her workout routine and her diet plan. She has spoken about her whole day routine in many interviews, and here is an excerpt from one of them:

7 a.m.: There is no typical day for me, but if I’m not traveling and don’t have any work things to wake up for, I’ll sleep in until my son Isaiah, who’s almost 2 years old, wakes up. Then I get up and make breakfast. There’s always fruit floating around, plus oatmeal, cereal like Kashi Go Lean or Heart to Heart, which I’ve always eaten without milk. (I’m weird like that!) Sometimes, I’ll make a tofu scramble with chopped onions and peppers, which I keep in the fridge, so I can throw them together quickly in a skillet.

I also stock up on frozen breakfast burritos just in case I’m making something for Isaiah and run out of steam before I can make something for myself. I like the ones from Amy’s, and I recently tried a new vegan chorizo one I liked. I never eat meat and try to eat totally vegan, which is easiest when I cook for myself.

When I’m out, I don’t go crazy about staying vegan — I wouldn’t send a restaurant salad back if it came with something like feta cheese. After breakfast, I record what I ate using the MyFitnessPal app. I’ve kept a food journal forever, since I’m a bottomless pit, and I can out-eat everyone I know — it’s like no sensor between my stomach and brain says, “Hey, you’re full, stop eating!” Once I recognized that about myself, I started tracking my diet, which helps me make better choices and pay attention to what I’m eating. I also write down which exercises I’m going to do later on.

10 a.m.: I drop Isaiah at his playgroup. I try to get him around other kids as much as possible when we’re home because he’s only exposed to adults while we’re on the road. Afterward, I’ll stop by the grocery store. People are always surprised to see me there, but I’m like, “I gotta eat too!” We hardly ever take out or eat out because I don’t like to. It’s not that I’m an amazing chef — I stick to the basics, like roasted veggies and stir-fries — but I like knowing what’s in my food, and it’s hard to tell when someone else makes it for you.

After grocery shopping, I’ll go home to work out. I have a gym at home with a treadmill, an elliptical, a cable machine, and free weights, plus a bunch of my husband Mike [Fisher]’s other equipment. Depending on the day, I try to spend 10 to 15 minutes warming up, then at least a solid hour working out.

I’ll often use a deck of playing cards to make my workouts feel more fun because I really like to mix things up and get bored easily. I’ll assign one exercise to each suit, including one upper body move (like push-ups or pull-ups), one lower body move (like weighted squats), one abs move (often using an abs wheel) and one cardio move (like jumping rope). Then I pick one card at a time and do as many reps are listed on each card until I get through half the deck. Then I’ll assign different exercises to each suit, and continue until I finish the deck.

When Mike is around, we’ll work out together. One of us will run on the treadmill or hold a plank while the other does 50 push-ups, or one of us will do squats while the other runs a mile. You both hate your life at the time, but you try to finish quickly so your partner won’t be tortured. We’re good about working out in the same space but separate from each other as well. We don’t talk a lot. We just get in the zone and get it done.

There are some days that I’m not feeling it, but even then I just try to do something, like get on the elliptical for 30 minutes. It helps that I’m never without something to wear that’s cute and makes me feel good since I have so much CALIA by Carrie Underwood fitness clothing — even though my closet is such a mess that I end up grabbing stuff off the top of piles and literally forget about all the clothes hiding underneath. It also helps to listen to music, like rock. If I don’t hear what I’m doing, like my feet hitting the floor, it feels easier, although I never listen to my own music — ever, at all!

1 p.m.: After my workout, I take a shower and have lunch. You can’t beat a sandwich: I have Ezekiel bread with Tofurky, or a fourth of an avocado, a handful of mixed greens or sprouts, and mustard. I love mustard.

3 p.m.: I rarely snack in the morning because I don’t get hungry — there’s no reason to feel hungry if you’re eating healthy. I do have an afternoon snack while I’m getting things done, like making phone calls to sort out my schedule. I’m also always doing laundry, washing dishes, and trying to clean the house because it’s always getting destroyed by my toddler.

If I’m home, I have an English muffin with peanut butter, but I always keep snacks in my purse when I’m out because I get brain fog when my blood sugar drops — my mouth moves but my sentences don’t make sense. To avoid that, I carry around vegan protein No Cow Bars, which I started buying online after seeing a fitness blogger recommend them; seitan jerky; and a Ziploc bag of cereal, which my son snacks on too.

6 p.m.: Once I pick up Isaiah and Mike gets home from practice, we try to eat dinner together before bedtime at 7 p.m. I typically make myself a vegan protein like tofu, beans, or a veggie burger with lots of veggies. Mike isn’t vegan, and as an athlete, he needs to go heavy on carbs, so I also make something for him like salmon and mashed potatoes. I don’t love the consistency of potatoes, so I eat whole wheat pasta or rice instead. I used to stay away from carbs, but lately, I’ve been counting my macros, which means I try to balance my intake of protein, fat, and carbs rather than worry about calories. That’s not to say I never go overboard on any given food group. Like at Christmas, I ate everything my mother-in-law was offering. When there are so many yummy foods, I don’t deprive myself, I just get back on the wagon the next day.

9 p.m.: I’m not a big sweets person, but if I’m craving something sweet I have a square of dark chocolate, some vegan So Delicious Ice Cream, or coconut milk ice cream. Otherwise, I’ll have an English muffin, some toast, or popcorn, since if I don’t eat something after dinner, I wake up in the middle of the night when I hear Isaiah stir, and I’m like, “Damn. I’m hungry!”

That was all about the routine that Carrie follows. In the next section, we would discuss her workout routine in detail.

Carrie Underwood Workout Routine

Overland and Carrie found a fun way to work out together, but the Women’s Health cover star doesn’t skip a beat. Carrie Overland travels with the seven-time Grammy winner when she’s on tour, and she workouts almost every day of the week. The “Love Wins” singer told WH that she did her leg workout in six supersets of three moves, which she did each for three or four sets. These included tuck jumps, Romanian deadlifts (with dumbbells weighing 30- to 35 pounds), walking lunges (20- to 25-pound dumbbells), and elevated sumo squats (with a 50-pound dumbbell, ouch).

Additionally, Carrie does a lot of cardio on the treadmill. To reach her goal, she sets a goal of running 1.25 miles every 15 minutes. By the end of an hour, she would have run five miles.

Before workouts, Carrie fuels up with a tofu or egg-white scramble, toasted Ezekiel bread and berries, plus coffee. After exercising, at lunchtime, she’ll have a sandwich with Tofurky, tomato, avocado, red onion, spinach, and mustard. Snacking on green smoothies or protein bars is her favorite. Her dinner consists of roasted vegetables and stir-fried vegetables since she does not consume meat. “Red wine is good for my heart, right?” she says. Despite adhering to a pretty strict diet and staying on top of her workout regime, Carrie is careful to keep her training and meals varied. Physical fitness makes everything else possible, she says.

Carrie Underwood Diet Plan

Even she is not about to become some sort of amateur vegan chef-or ever again follow a needlessly restrictive diet-to stay in shape. “I’ve seen crazy diet suggestions, and I’ve tried some that are entirely unsustainable,” she shared last week with Parade. “No, I’m not going to puree my own peas or make my own hummus. They have it at the store.”

A favorite way to eat, she shared with the outlet, is microwave burritos multiple times a week because they’re so easy. Finding solutions to those problems and doing your best is key. The mom of two, who marks her 37th birthday today exactly one week after she released her book Find Your Path: Honor Your Body, Fuel Your Soul, and Get Strong with the Fit52 Life, knows all about the diets that leave you hungry for French fries and mouthwatering carbs. She beat herself up because she wasn’t able to snap back as quickly as she’d like from growing a human life, but now she realizes that she ought to be a bit kinder to herself.

The fitness expert now prioritizes health by focusing on a 45 percent carbohydrate diet, 30 percent fat diet, and 25 percent protein diet. A typical meal regimen for the country singer includes tofu or egg-white scramble, almond toast with berries, and coffee before she works out, according to Women’s Health. Lunch included a Tofurky, tomato, avocado, red onion, spinach, and mustard sandwich. Snack on roasted veggies and a piece of chicken or stir-fry with tofu for dinner, and have a green smoothie or protein bar for a snack. Underwood doesn’t normally eat sweets, but she has one treat she enjoys.

While there was no Twitter back then, and Instagram was still decades away from becoming popular, but people still wrote hateful messages on message boards. “I shouldn’t care what other people think of me,” the mom of 5-year-old Isaiah and 13-month-old Jacob with retired hockey pro-Mike Fisher recently told Women’s Health.

Nevertheless, she still feels the pain of messages regarding her weight. As a result, she said goodbye to the quesadillas she used to eat regularly, hello to reading nutrition labels and sessions on the elliptical. Once she realized that was working, she turned up her calorie-counting to 11 and began consuming just 800 calories a day. By the time she showed up at the CMA Awards that November, she wasn’t only thinner, she was also anxious for some comfort food.

In the magazine, she described her bingeing sessions as “falling off the wagon.” She felt terrible and repeated the cycle. As she struggled to keep up with the show’s tedious touring schedule, she struggled with her energy level. Your body is telling you that it needs more calories! There’s no way I can survive without carbs! That’s why she had them,” she recalled.

It has been nearly 15 years since Cara Clark came up with her original plan and has remained almost unchanged since then. The vegetarian (a “want-to-be vegan”) is aiming for a solid mix of protein, carbohydrates, and fat. Choosing a daily diet consisting of 45 percent carbs, 30 percent fat, and 25 percent protein, plus drinking about a gallon of water, is her strategy for maintaining a healthy weight. She operates in this way because she feels good about herself.

For example, she might eat a breakfast of tofu or egg-white scramble and berries with Ezekiel toast and coffee before she works out in the morning. Then I’ll eat a sandwich with Tofurky, tomato, avocado, red onion, spinach, and mustard for lunch. Last but not least, we can enjoy roasted vegetables with a stir-fry of tofu or vegan chicken. She should also keep her MyFitnessPal app handy so she can keep track of anything she eats.

Indulging doesn’t happen often for her, but she usually picks either a square or two of dark chocolate, her “nice cream,” made from frozen bananas and cacao powder, or a glass of vino while watching The Bachelor. She allows herself to consume her vice, and that’s red wine, which she admitted to having at Women’s Health. “It’s good for my heart, right?!”

Her vegetarianism goes back many years, and she maintains that she feels and looks better without meat. Even when she is busy with her work or at home, she always has access to fresh, healthy foods. In addition to fruits and veggies, she avoids starches and bread during her pre-performance diet. Here’s what the singer of Some Hearts consumes every day.

Here is her sample meal plan of the day:

  • Breakfast: Vanilla smoothie made with banana, berries, almond milk, pea protein powder, and ice
  • Morning Snack: Tofu scramble with onions, spinach, peppers, and salsa on top
  • Post-Workout Meal: Grapefruit, orange, black coffee
  • Lunch: Brown rice, stir-fried veggies including carrots, broccoli, onions, and fake chicken
  • Dinner: Veggie burgers

Her A.M. Kick-Starter

Blend half a banana, a cup of berries, almond milk, and vanilla protein powder into a vanilla smoothie. You can also stir fry tofu with spinach, onions, and peppers, and top it off with salsa if she has what’s in the fridge. As well as an orange or grapefruit, she will have one when she exercises in the morning. Additionally, there is black coffee. Whenever she needs a caffeine boost, she gets it!

Delicious and filling lunch

Using precut vegetables, she makes a stir-fry. As for broccoli, carrots, broccoli slaw, fake chicken, and onions, she enjoys them all. It’s served with brown rice and seasoned with Bragg Liquid Aminos, and she’s ready to go. Although there is a lot of food, there is not much fat or calories in it.

The Dinner She Can’t Live Without

Vegetable burgers are her favorite!

What she ate for her pre-event diet

She stopped eating starches. She doesn’t like the no-carb diet; you will get into trouble if you do it. In other words, she eats vegetables and fruit but no other carbohydrates or bread.

According to Carrie Marie Underwood, she doesn’t go overboard with her fitness efforts. She cooks purely nutritious meals that are simple and easy to prepare. Additionally, she provides some tips during her meal plans to help her reach her goals more efficiently. See the next section for information about all that she does.
