I think fitsperation is horrifying.

So, part of the reason I started this blog is that I saw some hideous “fitspo,” as they call it, on like Pinterest or something.  I don’t remember what exactly it was that the fitspo stated, but it was probably a picture of some white woman’s sweaty abs, with a tagline over it like “work out all the time, never eat, and lift weights constantly. only a wiener wouldn’t listen to abs like these.” (Also, note the lack of capitalization.  I’m pretty sure that was a thing too.)

So I wanted a blog that you could come to to feel inspired, without me giving you ridiculous advice (like don’t eat), or posting insane pictures on my blog.  And if you refuse to feel inspired or whatever, I’d hope that you could at least laugh and stuff.   And please don’t be offended if you love fitspo, but recognize that everybody, and every body is different.  That said, I will say that I have a person who give me body inspiration.  Not envy, but she makes me go, “Yeah, what a bod!”  And it’s not like, “ohhh I wish I had her body blah blah.”  It’s like.  She’s a real person.  Who very obviously works hard.  Works out hard.  And whose body serves as a testament to the fact that working out, maintaining a healthy diet (P!nk’s been interviewed as saying that she switches with an on-again, off-again vegan diet), and not following tradition, you can look AMAZING.  P!nk doesn’t look like the typical little skinny-mini, and most of us don’t.  However, she is baller.  So….I won’t ask you who’s your fitsperation, because I hate that stuff.  But who (we’re talking real people here) makes you say, “yeah!”?

  1. Love this post. Is it weird that my “fitsperation” is Tina Fey?? She is a beautiful, funny, successful woman who has had two children and still manages to have a great figure. She’s no body builder, but she’s healthy.

  2. I think we should all find inspiration in ourselves. We can take pride in who we are and want to push ourselves to be the best we can. Great post and keep up the awesome work 🙂
