#BlackGirlMagic on 2017 American Music Awards Red Carpet

On the AMAs red carpet: Ciara

The mom of two said she gained 60 lbs during both of her pregnancies and had to work very hard to get back in shape. “I said I wasn’t going to gain 60lbs carrying Sienna…and I did exactly that!” she stated in an Instagram post.

Every postpartum journey is different, but you can’t help but be motivated by Cici! “After delivering my son, a 9-lb. 10-oz. baby, and gaining 60 lbs., I was committed to [returning] to how I felt before I had him. Four months after having him, I was back to my original shape,” she said. “There’s something very empowering about that. Something about that gave me an extra pep in my step, and motivated me even more to go harder.”

On the AMAs red carpet: Tracee Ellis Ross

Tracee on her body confidence with the Tracy Anderson Method workouts:
“…I have to say that Tracy Anderson’s workout the last five years has been really good for me. I love the studio atmosphere, I love how beautiful and sexy and long and strong I look when I work out, and I love the loud music.

I find that, as adults, we stay so regimented in our movement, even if we get on a treadmill. The music changes all the patterns, and my body gets to move freely, so you feel amazing—which is ultimately the point of the workouts, too. One of the things that’s most encouraging is you see a roomful of women working their asses off and looking beautiful. You see women in their 40s wearing jog bras and their stomachs out proudly, walking in a stance that says, “I love my body,” and that’s exciting to me.”

On the AMAs red carpet: Kelly Rowland

Kelly on her morning routine: “The first thing I do is at least two or three minutes of meditation. I started doing that after I had my son. It has helped me tremendously. It just puts you in an easier mind space. There’s so much you have to deal with in one day, and I feel like meditation prepares you for anything that comes to you. You won’t flip your lid on the first thing that shakes you up a bit. It puts you at ease.

My favorite thing to eat in the morning is oatmeal. I add a little maple syrup, a little salt, and almond milk, and I’m set. Sometimes I’ll add cinnamon and some raisins and pumpkin seeds. I don’t need caffeine in the morning, but if I have to it’s usually through green tea.

I am a morning workout person. I don’t think I could really be as connected or focused in the afternoon if I didn’t do it… It’s definitely a HIIT workout, and I feel a lot better and more centered from doing it. Having my son really did a number on my body…”
