Fitspiration, Do You Need it?

If you are a Pinterest or Tumblr fan, you’ve probably come across Fitspiration before. Pictures of toned young ladies with quotes like

“Work Hard or Go Home”

photoshopped across the background.

I won’t lie, I love looking at Fitspiration. The women have incredible bodies and they do inspire me occasionally. But more often than not, I sit there for hours reading inspirational quotes and looking at incredibly fit women, instead of actually getting up and exercising.

Me. On Pinterest.

I’m sure you’ll agree this is pretty counter productive. So I came up with a quote to make myself get off the couch and do something instead of searching images to inspire me.

“If I worked out as much as I trawled facebook, Tumblr and Pinterest. I’d be pretty freaken fit”.

I’m no gym junkie but I like exercising because it makes me feel good and helps me deal with stress. The challenge in this day and age is doing it healthy.

I find that looking at ‘Fitspiration’ often makes me feel unacomplished. Where as actually getting up and doing exercise even if it’s for 5 minutes, makes me feel great.

(You said it sister!)

So if you’ve found yourself getting addicted to pinning fitspiration and are not actively inspiring yourself. Get up, turn of the computer and go for a walk. I bet you will feel 100x better that you would after an hour of searching for fitspiration.

  1. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave
    it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab
    inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
