There are a lot of different themes on Instagram. To name a few, there is Throwback Thursday aka TBT, or on Friday, Flex Friday. All of the themes on Instagram are really fun to participate in. ¬†However, out of all of them Transformation Tuesday is my favorite.
I love Transformation Tuesday because this theme is the most inspiring. It is extremely motivating seeing people’s transformations. How far they have come. How much weight they have lost. How much muscle they have gained. It is the ultimate proof, that if you make a lifestyle change of eating clean organic food and dedicate time to training hard, you will see results.
Because you are seeing yourself every day, sometimes it is hard to notice the positive change.¬†I find it helpful to take progress pics and I label them with the date they were taken, that way I can really compare, and appreciate my hard work.
I am hoping my progress pics will inspire you, as much as other people’s have inspired me.
I also came across this amazing blog post,
This Trendy ‚ÄúStrong is the New Skinny‚ÄĚ Thing (and what it could mean for the next generation of¬†girls).
This is a must read so click here and read it now. It basically talks about the American tragedy of how and why a¬†large majority of young girls spend their time¬†obsessing¬†over their weight. ¬†Devoting endless hours, energy, emotions, and effort into being skinny.
The author claims that her new goal has changed from ‚Äúbe a size zero to¬†do a motherfucking pull up.”
In the blog post she reveals how painfully awful it was to be 104 pounds- all skin and bones, and how amazing she feels now strong and fit. ¬†Wishing someone would have told her sooner that Strong is the new Skinny, she is now trying to encourage girls to be strong, fit, healthy.
I love everything about this post and honestly couldn’t agree more – Strong is the new Skinny! And as you can tell from my progress pic, I was never fat, trying to loose weight, but rather I was just skinny,¬†scrawny, (even though I was running everyday)¬†Now, after adding weight lifting to the mix, I not only look stronger, but I actually am…
oh and p.s. I can do a motherfucking pull up.¬†
