Why You Are Doing It Wrong: An Open Letter To The #FitChicks of Social Media

Dear “#FitChicks”,

First of all, don’t worry; I’m not about to scoff being fit.

I am also not going to go on an annoying rant about how you should all stop talking about being fit. I already did that, before it became cool. Now it’s actually not the fitness freaks that need to shutup, it’s everyone thinking they are being funny and original by complaining about the fitness freaks that need to shutup.

Having said that, I am simply just going to offer some advice to all of the girls who are mad into fitness right now.
Don’t stop working out, don’t stop eating healthy, and don’t stop instragramming your protein and motivational quotes if you don’t want to, but do think carefully about my method that I am about to share with you…

It is my considered opinion that the more you express through social media about how fitness is your life and how you are going to the gym and to ‘keep calm and go lift’ (all camouflaging the real message that you’re trying to send: ‘someone please give me attention!’) the more you’re doing it wrong.


Here’s an idea: don’t post about how much you’re working out. When you do this, you’re raising expectations for how good your body better be looking next time you post a duck face mirror selfie.

A more chic technique is to keep your hard work and clean eating on the DL and just show up to a party one day looking bomb as fuck. This way, no one is annoyed by you, no one has expectations and everyone is like ‘DAYUM.’

That’s what you want. You don’t want people knowing how hard you work to look just ‘basic’.

The truth: I wake up five days a week at 5:23am and I workout before work. I really do that-it’s insane. I don’t post about it because what if I ever have arm fat in a picture? Oh, hell no. If I posted about it constantly, everyone would be thinking, ‘yikes, she works out THAT much and still can’t manage to lose all of her study abroad weight. Poor girl.’ No thank you!

Life as a lady is just one big mind game. Be a mental slut and never let them see you sweat. (DO YOU SEE WHAT I DID THERE!?)

Keep it chic, chicas!

Making the world a better place,
