Grizzy Posted July 27, 2013 Report Share Posted July 27, 2013 So I watch a *lot* of Netflix. I often try to find a series that has a physically strong/fit female character as an inspiration. I within the last month finished Battlestar Galactica, and Starbuck was my idol. I figured she had the same base body type as me; wide-ish hips and shoulders, not-gigantic-boobs, just much more muscle and far less fat. I mean, I wish my shoulders were rounded and muscled like that. I love the scenes where Kara is working out and doing a bunch of push-ups or something. It makes me want to do that. And then, more recently, my fantasy-netflix-fitness-role-model has been Phoebe from Charmed; she does a lot of martial-arts in the show, but I'm not sure how much of it is actually done by the actress. And her body type is definitely nothing like mine. I will never have boobs like that. So it's really hard for me to tell whether I'm actually looking up to characters as inspirations to work out and eat right, or if it's just thinly-veiled thinspiration that will make me feel like crap about the way my body looks.
