After doing the Shred for the last six weeks, most of the workouts are ingrained in my head, so I’ve been setting a timer, picking an artist, doing my exercises to YouTube playlists for about 30 minutes. Yesterday was the Kinks; today was Beyoncé.
I can’t seem to embed today, so click on the images below for two of my favorite videos. The common thread seems to be pets.
Added benefit: though I’m not usually one to be ‘inspired’ by other people’s bodies, I have to fess up that Beyoncé has helped me get through a few workouts. The fact that she’s curvy but incredibly fit is at once impossible to achieve (it’s called genetics) and somehow inspiring to me, as someone with a curvy frame. Maybe it’s just that she’s one of the few celebrities out there that I think embodies true sexiness and glamour. Yes, I’m probably overthinking this, but isn’t she pretty much the queen of glam? Even when she’s riding around on a cat?
p.s. on a stalker-esque note, I happened upon a site that told me Beyoncé’s height and weight, which happen to be almost exactly my own dimensions. Hm, then why don’t I look like her?
