Carrie Underwood is in full summer mode. The country superstar took to Instagram on Saturday to share a new bikini photo with her fans and followers.
In the snap, Underwood dons a diamond-patterned black-and-white bikini from her own CALIA by Carrie collection. “First day of summer!” Underwood wrote in the caption.
After posting, a number of Underwood’s fans flooded the comments with praise. “Super cute! Also, I see those abs! Your hard work pays off for sure,” one user wrote. “Cute suit and you look amazing!” another commented.
The 37-year-old Grammy winner has been ready for the warmer weather for months. Back in May, Underwood posted another bathing suit photo with the caption, “Is it summer yet?”
The photo shows Underwood sporting a floral bikini top with red bottoms. She completed the look with a floppy sun hat.
Underwood’s Diet and Exercise Regimen
Underwood recently spoke with Women’s Health about her diet and exercise regimen. The American Idol alum tries to work out every day if possible. “If I can work out seven days a week—which doesn’t happen, but if I can—I’m going to,” she said. “Because the next week, I might get two days.”
While on the road, Underwood’s personal trainer travels with her. However, at home, she creates her own workout plan. She maps out every workout in a journal as a way to maintain discipline. “When I walk in and don’t have a plan, I usually walk out,” she said.
Her workout routine consists of cardio and weightlifting. To keep herself motivated, Underwood creates fitness goals for each workout. “I have to set goals for myself: ‘Every 15 minutes I’m going to hit 1.25 miles, then by the end of an hour I’ll have run 5 miles,’ ” she said.
For Underwood’s diet, she also relies on self-imposed guidelines to keep her in line. “I love rules,” she said. This is how I feel good about myself, and this is how I operate.”
