The person I reblogged this from deserves to be happy.
You’re a fitness tumblr that posts more than just pictures of skinny females, naked females, etc. I’m ready to be inspired about losing weight instead of being discouraged by looking at bodies, that will never be mine, when I log onto tumblr. I will follow you all! (:Thanks!
But seriously now I’m just sitting here thinking about how uniquely weirdly beautifully fucking cute everyone is and I wish I could give a big fat hug to all your fucking cute selves. Maybe a friendly butt pat, I dunno <3
Anonymous asked: Your literally the perfect size. Really skinny is not attractive, makes you look boyish. Sexy toned thick thighs always always look better. Curves ass and some sexy ass thighs is what men want! Toned thick thighs are hot, skinny can only be cute. Wish more people thought this way
I definitely enjoy and respect that curves and thick thighs are to your personal taste. :) Thank you for sharing your appreciation of these things with me! I am in agreement that big thighs and butts are super hot! I also prefer my body to be thicker rather than thinner, because that is what healthy me looks like, and I believe that perfect is endlessly subjective but health is always beautiful.
However, I do not maintain these thick thighs and curves and ass for “what men want”. I do it because that’s what I want. I am not in the fitness and body image game for what men want. I don’t make my choice to be healthy, strong, and super hot for what men want. It’s all for me! Perhaps I will allow some personally chosen individuals to enjoy my super hotness, but it’s still for me because I like feeling this way and that’s all that matters to me.
Final note: This is a body positive blog. Skinny is cute as hell. Skinny is also super hot. Fat is cute and super hot. Butts are cute. Curves are cute. Men and women and non binary people are cute and super hot. Health is cute and super hot. Bodies are cute and super hot. Isn’t it great how people are just so fucking cute and super hot??!?! <333
littlemagnificent asked: I just saw your post about leggings - I totally feel "thick" wearing leggings too! And I love your positivity. I just wanted to saw your legs look AMAZING in that picture. And go you!!! (:
Thank you!! :) I’m training myself to view my body in a positive light regardless of what I think it looks like. If I don’t, I will never feel that way, no matter what it ever looks like or is able to do. And I’m sure your legs are super fabulously cute in leggings too. Thank you for supporting! <3
Anonymous asked: It's my time of the month and I don't feel like doing anything at all except snack and lay on the couch, how do you pump yourself up enough to go workout or get up and make food when you don't feel like it?
It’s kind of a catch-22 unfortunately. For me, the only way to cultivate the motivation for working out or food preparation while on my period… is to work out and eat well so that my periods don’t hit me like that. I don’t have very many crappy/sleepy/snacky/grumpy periods anymore, but I definitely think it was a learned adaptive skill. Of course I definitely am a little more hungry and a little more tired while on mine. In that situation, eat an extra snack, sleep in an extra hour if you can, and try to get on with life. It doesn’t start getting easier until one day you drag yourself up off the Couch of Cramps and grumble your way into the kitchen or the gym. But you don’t have to go all out! Just doing little things will help, gradually.
In the kitchen, try making something easy that your period monster will accept. Greek yogurt and honey. Asian noodles with gingery peanut butter sauce. Oatmeal with milk and apples and cinnamon. Nice quality chocolate. Herbal or spiced tea. Doesn’t have to be like a huge mega healthy whole-foods culinary production, you know?? (if you experience painful/crampy/gross feeling periods, some foods to avoid may include citrus, spicy/chili/peppers, eggs, and refined sugars/flour.)
And for exercise, it’s totally okay to take it easy. Go for a walk on the treadmill or elliptical. Do some mat yoga - some excellent passive poses like seated forward fold, cat/cow, child’s pose, or just a basic savasana with deep breathing can relieve discomfort. If you have a sauna or steam room in your gym, go use it. Take a walk around your neighborhood, even. The “secret” to finding motivation to do anything “healthy” while on your period is… to do SOMETHING. Even if it’s an easy thing. Easy things still count. ;)
