Thank you all SO much for the support on my last post, you have no idea what your encouraging words mean to me I personally invite all of you to my apartment for a dance party! WOOO
Things have been going freaking AMAZING on this new plan. BUT I’m not spilling any beans quite yet. I plan on doing progress posts every Monday for the next 12 weeks with thoughts, pictures, and meals. If I can squeeze in some time this weekend, I’m going to make a new page dedicated to the journey back to strength
Well, today’s my LONG day on campus…aka 8am-8:40pm….insert grossed out face here:
I will admit, all of it is super fun…just super long. Probably gonna involve taking over a table with my mound of stuff as usual
Since I still have to go pack my lunch, I thought I’d dedicate today’s post to:
My fitness idols.
The women I’m about to show you are my biggest FITspirations. I admire them so much and could only wish to attain their physiques/health one day. They’re not only physcially fit, but all of them seem so genuine, humble and kind! They inspire me to stay focused on my dreams, push harder, and live the s%*# out of each and every day.
I FREAKING LOVE THIS LADY. First saw her at the Olympics this past year when she blew everyone’s doors off in the hurdle trials. Her form was textbook perfect and speed was out of this world. So, I looked up videos on youtube of her past races and checked out her bio. She’s 25, from Australia, and is the 2011 World champion and 2012 Olympic champion in the 100 meter hurdles….in other words a beast.
She’s one of the first inspirations I’d ever had. When I first began lifting 2+ years ago, I saw her on the cover of an Oxygen magazine and fell in love with her genuine spirit and zest for life. And the fact that she’s self-taught/self-coached is pretty epic too. She’s also a really talented writer– her facebook statuses are usually little ranom motivational poems she comes up with!
Dana Linn Bailey
I talked a lot about my admiration for her in this post when I met her at Dallas Europa. SUCH a nice and funny person and a true role-model in the fitness world. AND she can bench more than most dudes haha
Yes, another Aussie haha She’s an AMAZING tennis player and when I saw an interview on ESPN with her, I just loved her passion for her sport and how hard she trains to be the best she can be. Really inspirational– and holy crap look at those shoulders!! She’s just plain cool.
Umm, can someone say awesome?! When she and the US relay team broke the long standing Olympic record in London, I was SO excited! Seeing how sweet/thankful/awesome she was about the win in interviews post race made me really look up to her. That and she’s freaking RIPPED.
I think it’s safe to say have girl crushes on all of them, no shame whatsoever
They put the beast in beastly.
And I’m currently putting the pro in procrastinate haha
Off to get ready for class! Have a rockin day!!!
Who are your biggest fitness inspirations? Why do you admire them?
