It’s no secret that Carrie Underwood is one of Hollywood’s hottest and most fit stars and it seems that every time we see her she looks even better than before.  With the return of American Idol on FOX this month, lets take a look at some of the former Idol champ’s best fitness tips.

1) Pushups for Abs – “Pushups work out everything.  If you do them right, you’ll feel it in your abs.  I do four sets of 10 to 20.”

2) Accessible Workouts – “I have Exercise TV on cable.  Jillian Michael’s videos will kick your butt.  She’s my trainer, and she doesn’t even know it!”

3) Eat for Energy, Not for Fun – “If I eat too much before a show, I just want to sit down.  Too little, and I’m starving.  So I eat something small, like Quorn, a tasty meat-free protein, and green beans.”

4) Enjoy your success – “Once you’re enjoying things about your body, you realize how much you want to keep them that way or make them better.”

5) Have an event to motivate you – “Everybody has things they want to look nice for: anniversary, birthday, reunion.  I’ll think to myself, oh, that award show is coming up.  Or, I have a photo shoot in four days!  It’s nice to set goals.”

6) Keep a food journal – “Once you realize, it’s like, ‘No wonder I’ve plateaued! No wonder I’ve been gaining weight!’ Little things really do add up.”

7) Eat in moderation – Enjoy your favorite foods, but eat them in moderation.  “I’m addicted to Hostess 100-Calorie Packs.  I love sweet stuff after meals.”

8) Plan your snacks – It’s important that you have snacks available that you can go to in a pinch so you don’t cheat and eat something bad.  “I love Kashi.  I eat cereal like a little kid.  I carry it in my purse.”

9) Workout for better rest – “I think clearer throughout my day if I get a good workout, and I sleep better at night.”

10) Track your progress – Reward yourself when you meet a goal, even if its on a very small level like eating healthy for a full day.  “I give myself stickers like I’m a kindergartner.”
