Фитнес-блогер Зои Новата показала снимки, сделанные с перерывом в 30 секунд, разоблачив идеальные снимки спортивных девушек из Instagram.
Она подчеркнула, что лосины для тренировок и правильное освещение способно творить чудеса, поэтому то, что видят подписчики, не всегда соответствует действительности.
Зои рассказала, что 75% своего времени тратит на работу в спортзале и правильное питание. Она подчеркивает, что спортивное тело не всегда выглядит одинаково. Она одна из немногих, кто показывает подписчикам реальные фото без обработки и пропагандирует бодипозитив.
Here is a 30-second transformation for #transformationtuesday! It's easy to look at pictures of other women on Instagram or really anywhere else and compare yourself to them. But I wanted to post this picture for a little perspective. These pictures were taken seconds apart. A lot of pictures on Instagram, including a lot of my own are posed, in good lighting, getting the best angle. It's still me, but I don't walk around in the best light, at the best angle, posing and flexing every second (although that would be fantastic ?). So take a good look at the picture on the right, thats me relaxed without the flattering tummy control of my high-rise leggings. The person on the right still works out almost everyday and eats healthy at least 75% of the time. She is also still 100% beautiful and strong. Next time you catch yourself unposed, in bad lighting, etc. don't be hard on yourself because your body is still so amazing and does so many amazing things for you if you let it. And when you see posed pictures know that the people in them are perfectly imperfect too. ?
Happy Friday! ???? Just wanted to talk real quick about society's standards for women's bodies (surprising, I know). If you've read any of my other posts, you've probably seen me say that you don't have to be super lean and tiny to be healthy and to be body positive. This is a mindset that is so opposite from the ways most of us have learned to think based on societies standards of beauty, fitness, etc. But something else that I have noticed is that many people don't think that women should be muscular. Muscular women are often called manly, chunky, bulky, etc. I've actually personally had people question why I want to build muscle when it will make me "bulky"…what? There are so many reasons I want to build muscle: to improve my body's metabolism, to be able to physically defend myself, to be more competent at at an array of things that require physical strength in daily life, and because I feel DAMN GOOD. Oh, and because I like to LOOK muscular. I don't think it makes me look like a man, I think it makes me look like a badass WOMAN. My point is the same point I try to make in all of my posts: Do what makes your body feel good, love yourself, and pursue what you want to pursue regardless of the judgement of others. And if you can admit that you've passed some judgement onto someone else's body (it happens), remind yourself that we are all going through different things that influence our bodies and we all have different goals for our bodies and that's 100% okay. ?
