Glamour Features Miranda Lambert for July 2014

Always being in the limelight can do strange things to a woman’s confidence, and Miranda Lambert has offered up a few helpful Dos and Don’ts in her new interview with Glamour magazine.
The “Only Prettier” songstress declares, “Don’t let your size define you. My weight yo-yos because I like to live. I'm a Cheetos girl. I won't give up vodka. I'm recently a size 6, which I'm proud of, but I've been a size 8 all these years, and it didn't hold me back. If you've got a little muffin top, that doesn't define you. You have so much more to offer: brains, talent, heart. You can spray-tan and suck in the rest. There's Spanx for that! And Blake? He doesn't care if my weight changes as long as I stay the same inside.”
Lambert also recommends, “Do one healthy thing daily. I jog. I work out with my trainer. Or I'll trick myself: I'll go horseback riding, or Blake and I will go walking in the woods, and it's like, Uh-oh, I think I accidentally did some cardio! With food—I don't like vegetables unless there's ranch or cheese on 'em. But I drink juice, so I have one vegetable-packed juice in the morning, and I feel like I've done my good thing for the day.”
And there’s always a need for a few strong ladies to walk through life with you. “Do surround yourself with girlfriends. One of my favorite lyrics on the new album is ‘Imagine a fighter with a centerfold face.’ That's how I picture all of my friends. They're strong—and gorgeous. They make me proud.”
