And yes, I know it’s Wednesday… but I had to win friends and influence people with my shark culling post on Monday, and then on Tuesday, well… god only knows where it went. So, I’m taking a leaf out of other bloggers’ books by offering up a Motivation Monday. ‘Cept it’s on a Wednesday.
Firstly don’t think this post will feature vomitous Fitspiration Memes cos they make me throw up in my mouth more than a little bit. When you’re 50kg overweight seeing pics of ridiculously slim or fit peeps with perfect abs telling you to ‘Go Hard or Go Home’ just isn’t gonna cut it. Plus… most people are never gonna look like that. I know (those memes) do it for some people who aspire to perfection, but for the rest of us…. #meh.
I’m trying to find most of my inspiration (to be fitter and healthier) from within. And yes… I know that sounds wanky, but it’s true. I’ve tried the externally-imposed motivation before and it hasn’t worked.
Anyhoo – I’ve felt bad about myself for a very long time and wanted to lose weight for all sorts of weird and wonderful reasons. But… I thought I’d share with you a couple of odd bits and pieces I have saved on my computer which I aspire to be inspired by. If that makes sense.
1. The weekend jeans
2. Freedom of movement
3. A jawline
I know it seems vain to include pictures of me – when I was far FAR from perfect – but it’s a reminder that perfection isn’t necessarily the end goal. Any better version of me is all I’m after.
What inspires you to be fitter and healthier?
