In honor of “Labor” Day…Ace & Penny would like to make an announcement. Their parents couldn’t be happier!
2:19 PM – 1 Sep 2014
Since the announcement, Carrie Underwood has worked closely with her trainer Erin Oprea to maintain her fitness level safely. Erin is guiding her client through lighter weights and more repetitions. Although Carrie isn’t jumping, she does work with a punching bag and does squats.
Now that she and Mike will be new parents soon, a fan asked Carrie on Twitter to name her biggest inspiration. When it comes to parenting heroes, Carrie Underwood doesn’t have far to look.
” My parents are pretty dang awesome!” tweeted Carrie promptly in response to the question.
So was she always preparing to become a major superstar singer? Carrie Underwood modestly claims that without American Idol, she would be singing in church and doing amateur gigs, reported CMT News on Sept. 23.

“Without Idol, I’d probably be singing in church on Sunday and karaoke on Wednesday nights,” claims Carrie.
But with a combination of her own talent, drive and the help of that little show called American Idol, Carrie Underwood has made it. She transformed her body to match her career with the same level of determination by relying on old-fashioned calorie-counting via new-fangled smartphone apps, as the Inquisitr reported.
“It’s all like, healthy-living stuff.” emphasized Carrie Underwood. “I’m a calorie counter; I have been for, like, seven years. I keep a food journal, and it has all my foods in it.”
In addition to tracking her calories, Carrie is careful about where she shops. She uses her Whole Foods app when she travels to find the nearest location. After following a vegetarian diet for years, she became what she calls a “practical vegan,” according to her recent interview with Women’s Health magazine.
“I am a vegan but I consider myself to be a practical vegan,” said Carrie Underwood. “If I order something on a menu and it has a sprinkling of cheese on top I’m not going to send it back.”
