Painting Muscles

 So, we're moving.
We bought a house in the neighboring town
and we need to be in by January 1st.
This means I've been doing a ton of painting.
It's exhausting,
but I think my shoulders&arms are gonna look great!

DirtyDancing Thin

Speaking of Jennifer Grey...
Dirty Dancing is/was always a form of thinspo for me.
Not only was Baby ittybitty, but Penny was tiny, too!
Actress, Cynthia Rhodes had bony arms&shoulders
that I want&wanted so badly!
Time to break that movie out and watch it again.

Vintage Thin

The boy and I watched White Christmas the other day
and I was immediately brought back to my youth
watching it every year with my mother
who still watches it to this day.
I was shocked to notice how tiny Vera-Ellen was in it
and proceeded to tell the boyfriend that
it's no wonder I have such wild body image
when I grew up watching actresses like her
I had to read Vera's bio, of course:
"Vera's career died down in the late 1950s once filmed musicals lost their fashion. It was later discovered that, due to the dancer's compulsive dieting obsession, she had silently battled anorexia throughout much of the 50s before anyone was even aware or doctors had even coined the term or devised treatments." sad to suffer in silence,
but I can't help but wish I had the willpower
because her body looked absolutely flawless.

Angel Thin

The 2014 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show aired this week
(obvs, you probably all knew that)
and, of course, I watched&loved it.
I'll admit that I didn't like it as much as years' past
but it was still thinspirational&beautiful.
Those models goodness... have the tiniest&longest legs.
I can't even aspire to look like them
cause my body just isn't made that way.
My favorite Angel is Candice and I loved her fairy look.
And my favorite performer was Taylor Swift
who looked like she should have been one of the Angels herself.
A good watch to make me behave - but not the best show ever.
I think I enjoyed all the workout posts they did even more...
a lot of the Angels posted what they did to prepare
and VS put it on their blog so everyone can "Train Like an Angel."
Maybe I'll try some of the workouts.

Anna Thin

I wish I could describe myself as "very small."
I know she's referring to her height, too,
but in general - she has a tiny body.
I was reading a blog with thinspo movie suggestions
and a lot of people commented that Pitch Perfect is
...I never really noticed, but I can totally see it.
I find it kind of ironic that their are so many movements toward
- accepting your body as it is -
- celebrating your average body -
- embracing your curves -
yet celebrities just get smaller&smaller
and the stories we try to relate to in movies
are acted out by frail actresses that we shouldn't aspire to be.
I'll be watching Pitch Perfect 2 for sure
...and probably fasting that day.

I need mono.
One of my college girlfriends has been sick
...for like a month...
and finally found out that it's mono.
I felt bad
but mostly I felt jealous
of all the weight she'll lose.

Oh, Miley.

An article about Miley Cyrus posting a picture
of herself in her undies popped up the other day,
so I went to look for some thispiration.
Oh yeah, I got it.
She is so tiny&fit.

Chubby Tyra

Scrolling the internet before starting my workday
I ran across this article about celebrity siblings.
The first celebrity pictured is Tyra Banks
...looking terrible...
I love me some America's Next Top Model
but Tyra definitely does not look like a model.
My friend and I always watch it
and comment on how horrible Tyra's outfits are
but this pictures takes the cake.
(or did she?)
Sorry, Tyra... this is certainly not your best look.

Starved Out

I finally started watching Orange is the New Black.
I know, I know ...I'm way behind the times.
But I caught up on all my other shows
and I decided I should finally watch it.
I'm only on S1E2
but I've found thispiration in a show about prison.
When Piper Chapman is "frozen out" by the kitchen
it inspires me not to eat either.
If she can do it - I can do it.
My favorite part is when her fiancé, Jason Biggs,
says she's all "cheekbony."
Taylor Schilling is already a skinny actress anyway.

Skinny Makeouts

I don't even know who these people are...
but I was scrolling through EOnline
and ran across this article
and fell in love with how tiny that girl is.
Of course the tan&skinny girl
has a super hot guy to make out with.

Holiday Exercise

I kicked off the Thanksgiving holiday with lots of exercise.
After a few too many drinks at the bar...
the boyfriend got a ride with his friends
and left me 3.5miles from home
so I walked&ran the whole way alone at 2am.
Though I was fuming from the neglect
I wasn't mad about the exercise
and I felt nice&thin in the morning.
I spent the rest of the weekend doing a lot of walking
while visiting family&friends
so I think I actually did really well!
...If I had a scale, I'd weigh myself.
Maybe after the new year.

Maid Legs

I'm the maid-of-honor in my best friend's wedding next year.
This is her cousin - the bridesmaid who will stand next to me.
Fuck me.
She's such a stick.
I'm going to look like a blob.
I must behave myself.
I will say, though, that my dress size is smaller than hers.
I measured an inch smaller in the waist
(probably because she's a straight-edged stick)
but my legs are obviously fat compared to hers
and these dresses are short, so the difference will show.
Time for some intense leg slimming&toning.
