Stephen Michael Clarkson (Father)
Winning the first season of American Idol in 2002. She is described as “The Original American Idol”.
There is probably no star out there that has been ridiculed more about their weight than Kelly Clarkson. Recently, the American Idol winner took to the Ellen DeGeneres Show to defend her weight gain and talk about positive body image.
Throughout her career, Clarkson has gained weight and lost it; and it seems as if the rest of the world always wants to talk about it. But that is what makes Clarkson so great—she doesn’t care what others think. She’s happy, and that’s all that matters.
Clarkson’s workout plan may be considered quite fluid, as she doesn’t really stick to a regular routine. Depending on how the singer is feeling, she can go hard at strength cardio or boxing and then maybe “slack” off for some time.
She has always acknowledged that she yo-yos when it comes to her weight, and it’s because she goes through phases of working out. For Clarkson, it’s more about being happy than fitting into a mold; so if she’d rather lift a glass of wine than a weight, then she will go with how she feels.
Clarkson’s workout schedule heavily revolves around her projects, so when she isn’t on the go and has more free time, her workouts are pretty lax. That is when she finds she puts on extra weight. When she’s constantly on the go and set on a more steady routine, she will shed those extra pounds from her lazier days.
