Aretha Franklin is making her way through the press circuit and showing she's fine after 2013's health scares.

Recently, the Queen of Soul told Kelly Ripa and Anderson Cooper all about her new workout routine: and it's a doozy.

To motive herself, Aretha Franklin power walks her way through super stores. So you may have seen the 72-year-old along the aisles if she's in town or you're in Michigan. 

In "Aretha Franklin: I Power Walk the 'Aisles' of Walmart, K-Mart" ABC News’s Michael Rothman noted the exercise is a very good thing after the singer cancelled quite a few shows last year due to poor health. Since reporting to the Associated Press about progressing health late last year, the singer definitely found a unique way to get back into shape. And one many of us could probably do day-to-day. 

Specifically mentioning the largest ones, like Meijer, K-Mart, and Wal-Mart, the size of the stores offers a lot of work out space and land to cover, the R-E-S-P-E-C-T singer notes the easy way to "walk all around."

And if she just scoots on by with a meet and greet? No worries. She's just in the zone. But please don't follow her for an autograph into the next aisle.

"I don't like to break my stride, so I change aisles." While Ripa and Cooper are laughing at the image and thought, she adds, "Really quickly."

And what does she do with that lost weight? Stops by Cracker Barrel for some chicken and dumplings. Kelly mentions the addictiveness of the pancakes but Aretha’s adamant that “it’s all about the chicken and dumplings.” And you can’t forget “with the dressing is wonderful.”

All that exercise and comfort food must be inspiring since the singer announced last week she’ll be putting out a CD of hits by other divas

Aretha Franklin - Aretha Franklin Tackling Diva Hits On New Covers Album” by Contact Music and WENN announced the playlist will include Adele’s “Rolling In the Deep,” Barbara Streisand’s “People,” and Gladys Knight’s 1973 megahit “Midnight Train to Georgia.” Working with Clive Davis, right now the record will be produced by Babyface and Andre 3000 from OutKast. Other divalicisous songs may include Donna Summers.

Sadly, the writer of Franklin’s wildly popular “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” has passed away. Time’s Richard Corliss points out that while Carole King wrote the music, Gerry Goffin wrote the lyrics to songs we still sing today. “A Natural Woman” is heard around karaoke bars to this day and it’s been over 45 years since the song rocked society. 

 

Remembering Gerry Goffin, the ’60s Poet of Teen Heartbreak” notes the change from girl groups to divas and Aretha’s been one of the greats for many years. Young atists still look up and cite her. So while Goffin has passed off the mortal coil, he’ll definitely never be forgotten when  Franklin belts out how she feels “like a natural woman.”
