Tim McGraw Says His Daughter Gracie Is The Reason He Got Fit 11 Years Ago
Tim McGraw has had one of the most successful careers in country music. He has not only made his mark in the music industry, but Hollywood as well. He has recently opened up about his fitness journey and what really got him started eleven years ago.
Tim McGraw has credited his eldest daughter Gracie for his reason to get fit. The 52 year old country music star got candid with Men's Health Magazine about his fitness journey, workout routine, cheat days and his decision for getting fit that he made eleven years and forty pounds ago. Gracie told her father that he was looking "big on screen" and this was during the prime of his career.
Tim McGraw: "looking big on screen"
"I was in the prime of my career, and I wasn't capitalizing on it," McGraw said to the magazine. "I use my whole body to sing - my legs, mu butt. And having more control over those things makes my voice stronger." Tim went onto to say that he changed his diet and stopped eating burgers, however he loves "a cheeseburger" and works just a little harder on the days where he treats himself.

My whole life, I've lived according to one key value. I guess I've done so from an early age, when I wanted so fiercely to get beyond my circumstances. That value is, Be ready. Be primed for opportunity when it shows up, because it will come once, it will move on quick, and if you're not ready to make the shot, your whole destiny can change in a heartbeat. Miss that moment, and you'll live the rest of your life wondering just how much of your potential never played out. That's when I decided to go from being in good shape to being in the best shape of my life. #GritandGrace

Change can be unsettling, partly because it requires effort and partly because it's so comfortable to disengage and move through life on autopilot, to order in instead of cooking from scratch, to duck out of sight in real life but show up on social media, all filtered and flawless. Yet doing more of the same isn't working, and it's not making us happy or healthy. We've come a long way from what our grandparents and great-grandparents understood: Real satisfaction in life comes from doing the effortful thing. Working hard, cooking (even growing) real food, getting through the grind with support from others, standing up for what's right and taking care of what needs to be done even when you don't particularly want to do it. #GritandGrace
