Hi girls! Just a quick post today, but I hope it’s an inspiring one!

After my recent slip, I’ve been back on the upswing. Yes, not every day is a good day, but I’m fighting hard against those ED voices and trying to stay as positive as possible. So I thought, why not do a little healthy-spiration (totally made up that word, hahaha)? I know that celebrities have a bad rap in general for promoting an unhealthy ideal, but what about those celebs who are happy, healthy and confident? For me, I mainly focused on petite stars, since they’re about my size and I can relate to them. These women, as far as I know, are happy with their bodies and don’t care what size they are, as long as they’re healthy. They are true body image inspirations.

Carrie Underwood, 5'3

Ellen Page, 5'1

Hayden Panettiere, 5'1

Reese Witherspoon, 5'2

Kristen Bell, 5'1

Haha, so I just noticed that I put in three celebs that are my height (5'1). Guess I'm playing favorites ;)
Q’s: Who are your body image inspirations?


  1. I'm glad you're on the upswing! Keep fighting(:
    My healthy-spirations definatley have to Ellen Page and Scarlett Johansson (she's 5'4" my height!)

  2. Thanks so much for this post, Ash! So proud of you for fighting the ED voice and staying positive! <3 Love all of these woman- and I'm 5'1.5'' myself so I appreciate the petite celebs as well! My healthy-spirations are Scarlett Johansson and Beyonce.

  3. Body image inspiration? Hm... Scarlette Johanson (totally killed her name) and Katherine Heigal (people tell me I look like her, I dont see it....) Maybe Kim Kardashine (yeah, dont mind my spelling)

    Dana xo

  4. I had no idea those girls were so tiny!

    I don't really have any body image role models. ANYONE who is comfy in their skin. Seriusly --the obese people at the gym and all. I just want to feel normal in my skin.

    However, Jackie Warner has always inspired me to get ripped.

  5. Jeez Ash, thsi is in response to your comment on my blog:
    of course you need more than 1300! Gosh, i was losing a LOT on that amount -- and that was before i was training for my half marathon. please increase your calories with me. your body deserves it.
