We noticed that Kelly Clarkson’s been getting her body into rockin’ ready shape lately, and now we know why!

In a new interview with Life & Style, Kelly explained that she decided to get in shape not for the sake of her job but for herself. Her “happy relationship” with boyfriend Brandon Blackstock hasn’t hurt her progress either.

“He gets my life,” said the singer. “I’m just more active with him. No one wants to be untoned when you’re dating someone.” The two don’t work out together, per se, because Kelly says they tried it once and she doesn’t “like huffin’ and puffin’ in front of [her] man and looking all red and gross and sweaty!” Who can blame her?

Kelly’s been looking wonderful during her past few appearances — including her performance on the Billboard Music Awards and last week’s launch of her new singing competition show, Duets — so it’s good to know that things are going well for her on a personal level too!
