Strong Became the New Skinny

on April 21, 2015

A very interesting article in the Guardian about how Strong has become the new skinny. I’ve occasionally tried to lose weight but I’m always aiming to get stronger. By getting stronger I have lost weight/fat and gained muscle but that’s generally not be the main aim, it’s made doing yoga, aerials, dance and other things easier.

I hadn’t heard of the hashtag #fitspo before reading this but I have seen some of the Instagram users that are mentioned in this. I need to do some more Instagram browsing and see what type of stuff comes up for this. I really hope that the next generation of girls aim to be fit, healthy and strong and not just thin.

Also one day I hope to be as strong as Pink is. She’s strong, healthy and awesome. I mean seriously my aim in aerial yoga and yoga sling stuff is to be able to do half the stuff that she did at the Grammy’s never mind while singing.
