Carrie Underwood knows you’re likely at home. While many continue to travel to work as the coronavirus pandemic sweeps the globe, a sharp rise in stay-at-home workers is now manifesting as governments advise citizens to self-distance – COVID-19 now has over 4,000 confirmed cases in the U.S., with the global death toll continuing to rise.
Carrie is amid the many celebrities to have now marked the novel coronavirus on social media – the 37-year-old updated her stories on Tuesday for a reminder that staying home doesn’t mean moping around and doing nothing.
Carrie’s stories showed her looking stunning as she smiled in the gym and posed without a scrap of makeup. The “Cry Pretty” singer’s opening shot came with a direct gaze and the blonde’s insanely-toned arms stretched out – a dark tank top also flaunted the singer and “Find Your Path” author’s sculpted shoulders.
Text from Carrie pointed out that staying home does come with its lazy temptations – provided you were even able to find Doritos or Pringles in the grocery store, you might well be tempted to spend any quarantine time munching on them with Netflix.
Carrie’s second photo completely changed vibes. The attitude was now a power one as the Calia by Carrie CEO posed with a sassy hand position, also seen winking and semi-smirking in a power pout – the pigtail braids were still there, though.
Carrie had added a muscle arm emoji and “Okay let’s do this” as she offered an alternative to the junk food and Netflix.
“WE CAN GRAB SOME WEIGHTS AND COME OUT THIS MESS STRONGER THAN EVER!” she wrote.
Carrie’s book quickly rose to be in Amazon’s top five, then finding itself on the New York Times Best-Seller list.
The run-up to Carrie’s book release also saw her profiled by Women’s Health – the feature revealed the star’s 800-calorie-per day starvation days during her 2005 “American Idol” win, also seeing Carrie open up about her diet now.
The dwindling calories came as Carrie read online message boards: “Carrie’s getting fat” got to the singer, resulting in her checking food labels, logging her time on the elliptical, and dropping her calories to just 800 per day.
As to what Carrie eats now, it couldn’t be healthier. The star kicks off with egg-white or tofu scrambles with berries, Ezekiel bread, and coffee. Carrie’s lunches might be Tofurky sandwiches with veggies and mustard, with vegan chicken stir-fries as dinner. Snacks can be green smoothies or protein bars.
An Instagram story from Carrie today also showed the chicken farm eggs she gathers from her home birds.
