Controversial topic ahead! If you couldn't tell by the entry title, this is going to be all about Thinspiration, and why I actually like it. A lot of people seem to think that thinspiration is mostly used by girls that have body image issues, are anorexic, or is just plain unhealthy, and a lot of it is. But! And there's a big but here, not everybody takes it to such extremes or twists things to the point of such distortion.
This is my thinspiration. To me it proves that it doesn't matter what we are looking at, things can always be distorted and turned into something ugly, but that doesn't mean that there is nothing positive left.
Plus, there is even more to this woman than just a body shape to work towards. Click here to read her story and see why she is such an inspiration.
This is what I work towards, and I don't see why looking at pictures of her, or other fitness models is harmful.
Since I've moved, I'm starting a new exercise plan, mainly I just want to get back into running. I run to the park near my house and do ten laps, (I don't know how far I'm actually running), and I want to pick up a weighted jump rope sometime really soon, and add that to what I'm doing as well. I try to do this six days a week. I'm not hoping to lose a lot of weight, eventually I want to start weight training again, and it's more than likely that I will actually be putting on weight, considering right now I can't actually healthily loose much weight. I'm almost 5 foot 7, 168cm, and 120 pounds
I believe that healthy eating, and hard work can and will lead to the body that we want. We will not all be fitness models, but we can all be in good shape. I like thinspiration because on the days that I really don't want to do do anything, I see what I want to achieve and remember why I'm doing all this. I think it's a good thing.
