"I'm a mother, wife, artist, and it is not always easy to balance everything," she shares with Self magazine (quote via Country Weekly). "Our rule at home is family first. Anything that Tim or I do works around what our kids are doing. That always comes first. Some days are better balanced than others but like most of you all, we do the best that we can."
The Mississippi native acknowledges she loves southern food, including sweet tea, but prefers to eat healthy as much as possible. "I don't diet but I do watch what I eat," admits Faith, who covered Shape magazine wearing a bikini at age 41. "For lunch, I usually have a greek salad with with grilled chicken. I love salads for lunch. It's light, delicious and good for you. I vary the protein and sometimes use salmon instead of chicken."
One thing the 'Come Home' singer does carve out time for, even with her hectic schedule, is physical activity. "Some days it's harder to get myself moving than others, but it has such a positive impact on my day," she notes. "I have more energy throughout the day and feel better overall. I also try to drink 70 to 90 ounces of water a day. It is so good for you, inside and out."
In addition to working on staying in shape, the songbird is busy finishing up her first new set of tunes in more than six years. Her plans for the upcoming year include an Australian tour with her husband, as well as performing at the CMA Music Festival in June in Nashville. Keep track of Faith's concert dates here.
