Everyone has their reasons for working out: to get fit, to stay healthy, or as we recently learned about Kourtney Kardashian, to help deal with stress and anxiety. Or maybe your reason for getting up before sunrise this morning to hit the gym is to prep for your upcoming massive world tour in support of your record-breaking new album. No? That’s just Adele? Oh. Our bad.

The endlessly charming 27-year-old superstar posted a hilarious sneak peek of her gym struggles to Instagram, making no contrived attempt at cheer or positivity, being as real (and funny) as ever with a full “I’m listening to Adele” cry face and a caption that said simply “getting ready…”

In a recent Rolling Stone cover story, Adele admitted that her workouts were also to “get in shape for myself, but not to be a size zero or anything like that.” Her main routine? “I mainly moan.”
