Life sucks and then you die | Random Thoughts #46

Last week's ramblings.  This was a good week Seriously. I actually had a good week. I am shocked too. There is a lot that I didn't do that I'm silently beating myself up for but at the same time, I ignored Bob (to my new followers, Bob is some poor helpless, slightly narcissistic guy that … Continue reading Life sucks and then you die | Random Thoughts #46

There’s a dark, toxic side to Instagram’s booming fitness culture

Well, damn, there are Instagram workouts? Somehow I missed that. The one fitness picture I saw on Insta scared the shit out of me so I decided to avoid that side of it. I definitely wouldn’t follow the advice of any Insta fitness gurus either.

Anyway, reblogging this because it’s an interesting read!

The INSIDER Summary:

  • Instagram’s famous fitness personalities market workout and eating plans to millions of followers.
  • They often share written messages of body positivity and self-love.
  • But the images they post tell a different story. 
  • Experts say that Instagram’s typical fitness images — which primarily glorify thin, toned bodies — are often unhelpful and possibly harmful. 

 

When Samantha Lego was in college, a friend introduced her to a fitness plan called the Bikini Body Guide.

At first Lego threw herself into the 12-week series of workouts developed by Australian personal trainer Kayla Itsines and approved by a self-described ” army ” of seven million Instagram followers .

The results were satisfying: Lego’s body was tightened and toned, her abdominal muscles were visible. She was inspired by the online community of women using the plan, too. Every day, Itsines’ clients took to Instagram to share before-and-afters or post-workout selfies, celebrating hard-earned progress.

pain without love | Random Thoughts #44

Here we go again Fresh off his realisation that life means more than posting random shit on Instagram, Bob is back to posting random shit on Instagram. Today it's a clip of him lifting 'super manly' weights. Why did he feel it necessary to post this? I don't know. I'm curious as to how he … Continue reading pain without love | Random Thoughts #44

i’m my own boyfriend | Random Thoughts #40

[How is it September already? Shit.] Bras are stupid Just thought I'd put that out there. I'm down to two t-shirt bras now. Cause of bra demise? The washing machine. I finally have to buy one of those laundry bags. Sigh. I bought a bunch of bralettes this week but I'm thinking that I have … Continue reading i’m my own boyfriend | Random Thoughts #40

my eyes are shady | Random Thoughts #35

9th August  I start work in four hours and I've slept for about three hours. I've been up doing...God knows what for three hours. Reading. Reading stuff I've read many times before. I'm nuts. I don't know what I was doing.  Anyway, I have a raging headache and need to nap so obviously, I turned … Continue reading my eyes are shady | Random Thoughts #35

the end is nigh for the star of random thoughts by a bitchy blogger

Today (or yesterday for me) was so awful that you get this post about Bob. I'm not even going to call it Random Thoughts, it's just...Bobservations.  So, after his little snarky remark about someone running, Bob had that live thing on Instagram, but I didn't watch it. However, later, I was told what was in it.  You … Continue reading the end is nigh for the star of random thoughts by a bitchy blogger

this is me sending the batsignal | Random Thoughts #33

× I think I'm spending too much time on here. I can't even say what it is I do on here because I feel like I barely read people's posts, but in terms of operating my two blogs, I don't think I'm using my time wisely. I know that a while ago I said I'd … Continue reading this is me sending the batsignal | Random Thoughts #33
