Kelly Clarkson has opened up about how hard she finds it to work out.
The Since U Been Gone hitmaker has struggled with her weight since shooting to fame as the first champion of hit reality show American Idol back in 2002, but earlier this year (18), she shared that she had dropped 37 pounds (16 kilograms) after adopting a new diet and exercise regime.
However, on Thursday (01Nov18), Kelly shared a candid post on Twitter explaining how she much she dislikes going to the gym.
“This just in…. I still hate working out. I’m sweaty, red, and not any thinner. People say it’s good for your heart…. but people also say red wine is good for your heart,” she wrote, before going on to underscore her love of wine. “I mean, I’m just stating facts here people. Who am I to ignore science?! #cardioversuswine.”
Accordingly, a number of Kelly’s 12.4 million Twitter followers responded to her message, offering up funny memes and kind words of encouragement.
“Dark chocolate is also good for your heart! Don’t forget that too!” one user replied, while another added, “If you flex when you lift the wine to your lips, it burns more calories #WINWIN #wine.”
A third insisted: “Hun, you’re perfect the way you are. Drink all the red wine!!!!”
In June, Kelly showed off her new figure at a series of red carpet events. And the 36-year-old, who shares two young children with husband Brandon Blackstock, explained in an interview with NBC’s Today show that she had been following a clean eating diet inspired by Dr. Steven R. Gundry’s book The Plant Paradox.
“I had an autoimmune disease and a thyroid problem that started in like 2006,” the star commented. “I read this book… it might not work for you but it worked wonderfully. Here’s the best part, ya’ll, it’s not even the weight – I mean, I know the industry loves the weight gone, but I mean, for me, it wasn’t really the weight. For me it was like, I’m not on my medicine anymore. My bloodwork came back and I haven’t been on my medicine since like February.”
