Miranda Lambert left the 47th annual Country Music Association Awards last night looking and feeling great. The 29-year-old country singer arrived at the CMA’s red carpet in Nashville, Tenn., Wednesday looking fit, revealing that her recent transformation was the result of exercise and dieting.

In an interview with E! News, the “Mama’s Broken Heart“ singer revealed that her weight loss journey was no easy task. "I have been working a lot!" said the musician, who claims that her goal was to drop the extra pounds prior to her milestone birthday on Nov. 10th. “I'm going to be 30 in like four days, so I'm like, 'I need to get ahead of this thing!' Because they say when you hit 30 it doesn't get easier,” said the singer, confirming that she implemented her new workout routines and diet regimens in order to “stay ahead of the game.”

According to the musician, who walked away with the win for Female Vocalist of the Year Wednesday night, her weight loss journey involved cardio and giving up unhealthy foods. “I fluctuate all the time in my weight—it's really annoying,” said Lambert, who shared specific diet and workout secrets that helped her obtain her fit figure. "[I’ve been] working out and drinking juice and just running, running around,” she said.

While the country star admitted to giving up junk food in order to shed pounds, she did admit that two particular items, alcohol and Cheetos, have remained. “I didn’t give up drinking. I refused. Have you met my husband? You have to drink to put up with that…Just kidding” said Lambert, referring to her fellow country star husband, Blake Shelton.

Despite the award-winning singer lifelong struggles with her weight, she did share a funny quip regarding her recent transformation while backstage at the CMA’s. “I’ve been working out, but this thing is heavy,” said Lambert according to a report from People magazine.
