Looking at thinspo makes me super sad but not for the reasons it did when I was younger.
To those still struggling:
Listen to me. You are beautiful. It is your passion for life that will make you happy. Not eating because you want to have more control over your life or hearing your friends tell you”you’re so skinny” isn’t worth it. Just be healthy. Your dreams can be bigger than just your size.
One of my friends asked what the ‘silly new workout trend that women like to do’ is these days. Everyone jumped in and mentioned ‘hot yoga’, ‘pole dancing’, ‘zumba’, etc.
Hold the fuck up there, buddy.
"Hot yoga" or BIkram yoga is effective and good for you. It’s hot, yes. But it’s a legitimate form of yoga and exercise.
Pole dancing lets a woman feel sexy while working out, and also greatly improves core and upper body strength. You think it’s easy to suspend yourself from the pole like some of those women do? Get your ass up there and try.
Zumba is incorporating dance into your cardio workout. It’s fun and a nice break from running and lifting.
Don’t go knocking the way certain people choose to exercise just because you think it’s silly. I bet if he (and it was a man that said this) thinks it looks silly doesn’t mean it isn’t effective and fun.
Preach! However you workout is okay, as long as you enjoy it.
Never wish you were somebody else. You have no idea what demons they’re fighting.
