Like all responsible Americans, Carrier Underwood is practicing social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic by staying at home. On Friday night, she shared a photo of herself on her Instagram Story showing what she’s been up to while she’s stuck in the house.
“Everything everywhere is closed/cancelled. Might as well work out!” Underwood wrote under the selfie of her covered in a sweat and wearing a workout tank from her CALIA collection.
Underwood recently released her book, “Find Your Path,” and the accompanying workout app, Fit52. The book already hit the New York Times bestseller list, and Underwood has been doing the media rounds lately.
“That is a passion of mine, and I’ve been falling more and more in love with it over the past 15 years really,” Underwood said on the TODAY Show earlier this month while talking about fitness. “People would say, ‘You should write a book,’ because I really love health and fitness, and I geek out over articles and trends and things like that, so we went for it just to see how it would turn out.”
In another interview, she said that sometimes even she lacks confidence, but she finds ways to “fake it.”
“Some days you’ve just got to fake it, man,” Underwood said. “I’m not gonna lie. Some days you don’t feel confident. You don’t feel up to it or you don’t feel … whatever it is, but I feel like the more you step into that role anyway, the more you start to feel it. So, if I’m going into a situation that I question — like producing, I had never done it before [Cry Pretty],” she continued.
“I don’t know how to be a producer,” she said. “I’ve worked with plenty, so it was kind of like in the beginning, it’s like, ‘Okay, just kind of pretend like you know what you’re doing [laughing] until you actually do,’ and I feel like that worked.”
“Everybody has insecurities,” Underwood said. “I had to start feeling not good, physically, before I was like, ‘Something’s not right here.’ It was a lack of knowledge. It was a lack of knowing how to take care of myself, and kind of going too far the other direction led me to figure out what works, because I wasn’t feeling good, I wasn’t happy. I knew it didn’t feel right, so it led me to do better.
“I’m really proud of it,” Underwood said about her book. “I have some contributors, that are friends of mine –– they’re the experts in working out and nutrition. It was such a wonderful passion project.”
