Body Inspiration

Hi Everyone!!!
As you all know, I have been working on a "lifestyle change". I try not to say diet because diets almost always fail. I've done every "diet" on the market; low carb, cabbage soup, master cleanse etc. I may have lost the weight but when I started eating normal I gained it all back. I've tried cutting all the "bad foods" & all that did was make me crave them even more! This time around, I'm strict but I don't deprive myself of anything. If I want fries, I'm eating them!! But, the more junk I eat, the less amount of food overall I get to eat.
It's been almost a month since I've gotten back on track & I have to say, my skin is so clear & I wake up more energized.
I think it's really important to set small goals. My first step was increasing the amount of water I drink, then trying to eat more fruits & vegetables. Now I try to drink no less than 10 glasses of water a day & 8 servings of fruits/vegetables. It's hard to eat healthy & only lose 1 pound a week, but 1 pound is 3,500 calories!!
I've been lacking motivation lately, I don't know whether I'm stuck in a rut or if it's just pure laziness!
I'm posting pictures I found on Google to show you what I want my body to look like!!
This girl is built a lot like me, she's got wide hips, but her stomach is killer!!
I played Roller Derby & I loved it(until I blew my knee out!) The only thing I hated was it made my thighs enormous from constant squatting & jean shopping was a bitch when your thighs are too big! Skating is such a great workout & I miss it so much, but there is nowhere for me to skate because the road I live on is rocky and uneven. But these girls bodies are rocking!!

Oh, Megan Fox.. your body is the bee's knee's!!
I never realized Fergie has such a kick ass body!
Obviously, I'm never going to be a size 2. I have wide hips & I've always been curvy. I always carried my weight in my butt & thighs until about a year ago when it started migrating to my belly. I'm planning on starting either P90X or Insanity in late July/early August, I just do not want to get too muscley(is that a word!?) But it's a sure fire way to lose some weight before the wedding!!
Do you have any fitness goals/inspiration!?
Have a great Holiday weekend!
(PS - I'm hoping to do a Nicki Minaj look tonight or tomorrow! I'll keep you all posted!)


  1. Great inspirations girl!
    I've done p90x twice and I'm currently doing Insanity and I love them.
    Since you don't want to get too "muscley" ha ha then I would only recommend Insanity because p90x is all about the muscles.
    Good luck with everything!

  2. I agree, great inspiration. This might sound silly, but swimming is a really great workout. It's easy on your joints and you don't sweat! haha
    much love!<3

  3. Lovely inspiration for sure! I am lucky to be naturally thing with, but happen to have the wider hips too, which look bigger because I have such a tiny, I totally understood what you were saying here! I hope you are having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
