I HATE THEM. I HATE THEM. I HATE THEM. THEY ARE BIGGEST FUCKING JOKE.
This cult following of celebrities is pathetic, degrading, pointless and utterly damaging. As a country we have become OBSESSED with other’s peoples lives, reality shows, workouts, etc. I’m so fucking sick of seeing Victoria Secret Angel workouts being highlighted in magazine, the news, and even being preached. This shit NEEDS to end.
Why the sudden rant? Why do I think they are so damaging?
BECAUSE THEY ARE MISLEADING. As a normal working adult, it amazes me how excited people get that because if they do what “celebrities” do, that they have better chances of losing weight??
Here is my point: THESE PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE NORMAL LIVES. THEY ARE THE EXCEPTION TO THE RULE. THEY HAVE TRAINERS, THEY HAVE NUTRITIONISTS, THEY HAVE MAKE UP ARTISTS, HAIR STYLISTS, LOOKING GOOD IS THEIR JOB.
Not to mention the amount of money and time these people throw at skin care products, exercise equipment, trainers, assistants etc. Now, don’t get me confused with calling these people lazy. They aren’t. That’s not what I’m trying to get across here. All I’m saying is that celebrities are celebrities for a reason. They are in the spotlight, they are critiqued by magazines, editors, fashion industry voices, advertisements and ultimately, us. We, as the average, working adult population idolize these people because they are the exception to the rule. So before you read something on a celebrity and their new, awesome routine and diet advice, FUCKING STOP. GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF THE DAMN CLOUDS.
YOU WANT A HOT BODY? YOU WANT MUSCLE? YOU WANT TO LOSE FAT? YOU WANT TO SWEAT, PANT AND LIFT? THEN WORK HARD. Exercise is HARD work. It’s constant, it’s never ending, it’s persistent. It takes everything you have. If you train like a fucking Victoria Secret Angel, you WILL NEVER LOOK LIKE THEM. And you know what? WHO GIVES A SHIT.
Work out for yourself. Get your head out of the magazine, tabloids, day time gossip and focus on yourself, your family and your goals. STOP TRYING TO BE SOMEONE ELSE.
Lift, run, push, pull, swing, jump, sprint, climb, swim, dance, eat veggies, lean proteins, do your research and NEVER GIVE UP. Cut yourself some slack when you’re exhausting yourself, treat your body with respect, and don’t listen to anybody but your mind, body and goals. This is FOR YOU. This isn’t for the past, this isn’t for your ex-boyfriends/girlfriends, this isn’t about how thin or thick you are compared to your co-workers, family, friends, neighbors. This is about how much YOU are willing to work and push through all the fucking barriers that will try to tear you down.
This is the hardest life lesson that anyone can go through. This will teach you the never-die attitude. This will make you swear, sweat, bleed, cry, scream and even smile, laugh, and hug. This will give you thick skin, confidence, work ethic, persistence, determination…and best of all, it will get rid of your fears.
