With the simple caption "getting ready" this Instagram picture from Adele is one we can all relate to right now. Because, really, who finds it easy to set foot in the gym after all the festive overindulgence?


The "Hello" singer posted the snap to her Instagram account on Wednesday, showing she's determined to kickstart her 2016 fitness regime — and that it's not easy.

She recently slammed exercise as "f***ing boring" but it's part of the healthy lifestyle she follows to keep her voice healthy, having previously suffered a vocal haemorrhage.

"It's f***ing boring, but I don't think you take your voice seriously until you've an accident," she told Daily Life magazine in November. "I'm frightened all the time I'm going to damage my voice."

As well as regular exercise, the 27-year-old has cut out alcohol, cigarettes and caffeine, together with "spicy, citrusy, and tangy" foods, to keep her voice in tip-top condition.

Adele's sell-out 10-month tour of Europe and North America — her first set of live dates since 2011— starts in Belfast on Feb. 29.

All of us who go to the gym can relate to that expression of total anguish, right? Celebrity or not, some days it's just too painful.
