STRONG is the new skinny
Most of those women are malnourished, exercise wayyyyy too much, don't eat hardly anything, and/or throw up their food. That is NOT healthy at all.
I went through a rough patch of my own in middle school. The media and bullying was a big factor in my poor body image. I don't want ANYBODY to go through what I did...
Now that I am at a healthy weight, I have so much more energy, I don't have trouble sleeping at night because I am SO STINKIN' hungry, and I just enjoy life and laugh a lot more!
I want to inspire women to be HEALTHY.
I want to encourage women to have SELF-CONFIDENCE and feel good about themselves.
I saw this quote a few months ago on NHERSHOES and fell in love.
"STRONG IS THE NEW SKINNY!"
So, I've decided to share a few of my favorite strength exercises.
Planks - work your entire core!
Side Planks - work your obliques
Pushups - tone those arms! Pretty soon, you'll have people asking you for tickets to the gun show!
Leave me a comment...what are YOUR thoughts???
