Step 3. Wear a boob harness – it’s like the Blade Runner of bras.
NOT knocking anyone who naturally has a “thigh gap”, just poking fun at all the “fitspiration” that centers around this one quirk of genetics, weight and hip width. I recently read a post on a prominent healthy living blog (not linking, sorry) that had a whole list of criteria as to whether or not your thigh gap – how much daylight you can see between your upper legs – is legit or not. No less than 12 rules that included things like “Your heels AND big toes must be touching” and “You may not arch your back” and “sitting doesn’t count!!” because apparently there is a rash of counterfeit thigh gaps plaguing the Internet? They even used a Victoria’s Secret MODEL as an example of a faker! Somebody alert the FCC.
Anyhow, I picked this meme for (anti)Fitspo Friday since my thighs have long been my biggest source of body hate. But thanks to time, perspective and a whole lotta help from you guys, I’m really learning to not only love them for what they can do but even for how they look, including the fact that they’ll never not touch (they’re BFFs!).My curves mean I can rock the heck out of a pencil skirt! Which I take advantage of fairly often:
In addition, since this blog is pretty much my journal too (I have it printed in book form since it contains soooo many fun memories!) I’ve decided to start including some more mini-posts like funny things my kids say. Feel free to be entertained. Or not. These are totally for me, ’cause I’m too lazy to really scrapbook 🙂
This is even funnier if you’ve ever met Jonas – he is my one who is always SO SERIOUS.
Anyone else feel like this whole “thigh gap” trend has gotten out of control? I mean if a Victoria’s Secret has thighs that touch that pretty much makes it a non-issue, right? Just for funzies (because I’m obsessed with coats!): What’s your fave fall jacket/coat you’re wearing this season? (Links are totally welcomed!!)
