I’m going to start watching this commercial every day before running.
I’m always way behind on commercials because I don’t have the time to sit and watch them, but I saw this, and wow. I was instantly inspired to get up and move. The fact that they used all female athletes, in itself, is so awesome. They’re smiling, happy, and working their asses off. I’m glad that young girls are being exposed to this.
Corporate America? Can we work on doing more of this? Thank you.
Commercials and other forms of media that really promote athleticism in females remind me of reasons why I decided to get fit. I had already decided to lose weight, I knew I wanted to be skinny, but then I read about Shalane Flanagan.
Holy cow. This girl isn’t skinny, well, she is, but a different kind of skinny. This girl is fit. Look at her body, it’s rock hard, and it looks awesome. I just remember reading about her and my focus changing from needing to be skinny, to needing to be in shape.
So, once again, Corporate America; can we start putting female athletes on the cover of magazines and remove the people who look like they haven’t eaten since they were 12? It may do shocking things for society and for the self esteem of young girls in our country.
What do you want to be; fit or skinny?
There’s no wrong answer.
Taking all super skinny celebrities off covers of magazines is probably never going to happen. I’m just thinking, how can young girls be more motivated to eat healthy, and be active- as opposed to eating nothing and killing themselves with quick fix diets. I know that nothing is going to magically evolve just from my blog, like, no ones gonna read it, and then change media politics over night. That’s just not going to happen.
But, I know a lot of you are moms, and I want to know what you’re doing for your children to make fitness engrained in their lives. Are you raising them so activity is nothing strange, it’s just what happens? Do you somehow have a trick to make the fruits and veggies more exciting than oreo’s? Starting at home is the key, right?
I legitimately have no wonderful ideas, but I know a lot of people do, and I want to hear them.
I want to know what real people, in their real homes are doing, every day?
