Something I like to include on my blog from time to time is a bit of “fitspiration.” I know “thinspiration” is a growing phenomenon, but I don’t care about being “thin” as much as I care about being “fit,” or healthy. My philosophy is that you can’t change what you were born with, so you should learn to love it. We only get one body, and if we are always consumed with trying to look like someone else, we certainly won’t enjoy life to the fullest. Some people simply have larger frames, slower metabolisms, and different shapes than others, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be healthy and happy.
That said, in my opinion, being thin shouldn’t be the goal – being healthy and fit should be. Sure, everyone wants to look good, and I’m not going to lie and say that isn’t a goal of mine, but I certainly won’t be starving myself thin to reach it. Instead, I hope to fuel my body with good, nutrient-rich foods, and exercise my way to better health. You won’t look good if you don’t feel good, so, to me, that’s where it starts.
Here are some of my past Fitspiration posts:
