Oh don’t mind Ciara, she’s just here to SLAY!!!!

Ciara graces the cover of Shape Magazine September 2015 issue. Inside, the I Bet singer dishes on how she dropped over 60 pounds in four months after giving birth to her son baby Future, her diet, taking a break, how she stays in shape and her version of success.

Excerpts and more pics below…

On losing the 60 pounds after her pregnancy:
“When I was pregnant with Future, one thing I learned quickly was, don’t ever let a pregnant lady be hungry, because when I was, I was like the Tasmanian Devil! But as soon as the doctor said I could start training again, I was on the treadmill the very next day. I would go to Gunnar first for my one-hour training session, then I’d have two more cardio sessions later in the day. That, along with a really clean eating plan, was how I lost 60 pounds in four months.”

On her diet mantra:
“I have a mantra, ‘The food isn’t going anywhere.’ You know those days when you think you have to have that plate of pasta right now? When I’m trying to be good, I take a minute to ask myself, Do you really need to eat all this crazy stuff? It will still be around if you really want it later.”

On taking a break every once in a while:
“First, I give myself a break. When I’m on a strict eating regimen, at some point I have to have French fries, a cheeseburger, and some pizza. And Oreos and vanilla ice cream! I also believe that drinking tons of water and flushing out your system is crucial for training. It really helped me drop the weight. I tell myself that water is my medicine and that to stay well, I have to drink a gallon of it every day.”

On how she stays in shape:
“Five days a week, Gunnar puts me through an hour-long plyometric cardio circuit that always includes boxing elements. What’s amazing is that you’re getting three-in-one training: it’s hitting your muscles; it’s a cardiovascular workout; and it’s a mental exercise . . . After I’ve done a few rounds, I feel as if I can conquer the world.”

On her version of success:
Success begins with self-belief. Once you’ve got that, then you have to envision what you want to achieve . . . There’s a video of me at my high school graduation, and when I was asked where I thought I’d be in a year, I said, ‘I see myself having a number-one record.’ A year later, ‘Goodies‘ was number one and sold five million copies. Four years ago, I wrote down that I wanted to be the face of a fashion campaign, and this fall, I’ll be the new face for designer Roberto Cavalli. I truly believe that if you put your goals in writing, speak them out loud, and work for them, they will happen.”
