Women’s Health Cover Star for June 2014: 

OMG—it’s Miranda Lambert on the cover and I could NOT be more excited. Not only is she a kickass artist (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is a favorite tune of mine) but she also is a domestic abuse victim’s advocate (growing up her parents would take in women & children who were from abusive environment to help them get their on their feet) AND a friend of the animals who loves to take in stray dogs.

In approach of her upcoming 30th birthday Miranda decided to trade unhealthy eating habits for a balanced diet and workout schedule and has lost somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 pounds (she is not a huge fan of scale-watching.) Though offered mega bucks by huge weight loss brands to lose 40 pounds she decided to forgo the skinny-chick hype and keep it real. (She is stunning by the way!)

She offers us a look at her workout created by Crutch Boot Camp in Nashville owner Bill Crutchfield:

 Women’s Health Cover Star for November 2013: 

Carrie Underwood whom I just discovered as a kickass singer whose songs are now completely filling up my iPod. Not to sound like a total rock-centric snob but I never really “got” country/pop before but I am becoming a big fan of hers. (Honestly—Before He Cheats totally rules!!!)

Carrie keeps in shape by sticking with a vegan diet and working out as often as she can on the road. She  also loves animals and took care of a stray dog last year. (Yay! Carrie!)
