Singer, Ciara is opening up about her health and fitness routine in the November issue of Cosmopolitan magazine. In an interview with the magazine, she opens up about everything from her ambition to dealing with trolls to her workout routine after giving birth to baby girl, Sienna Princess Wilson last year with husband, Russell Wilson.
She says after she gave birth, she hit the gym up to three times a day.
“It was kind of like, wake up in the morning, breastfeed, eat a small meal, go train, come back in, breastfeed, eat another meal, go train, then come back, have another meal, and then a third training session at night,” she tells the magazine. “It was a good challenge, one I set for myself, not for anyone else. Taking care of myself makes me feel really good. And I want to keep it sexy too, you know.”
Speaking about her music career, Ciara who has a seventh album on the way, opens up about her ambition to be a force to reckon with in the industry as well as her greatest accomplishment in life.
“I never thought, I can’t be because of the color of my skin, I can’t be because of my gender. No dream is too big. I want to be a billionaire. The more resources, the more you can do. But I think my greatest accomplishment 10 years from now is that I would have a successful life as it pertains to my marriage and being a mom. It’s cool to want to do all these creative things, but it’s no good to gain the world if you lose your soul.”
On her goals, Ciara said, “This is what I want to do. The first goal I wrote down was to get discovered. The second was to sell 3 to 4 million records. Third, have longevity.”
As a result of all of her success, Ciara has to deal with unwanted attention from trolls online. On how she deals with them? She said, “When someone comes for you and you didn’t send for them, you keep your eye on the prize. I know what my mission is. I know what I’m hoping for and working hard for every day. And that’s my focus. I’m not going to let people steal my joy. I move on. New day, new opportunity, new energy, let’s go.”
