What is wrong with this picture....?

I just switched computers and am loading images of fitness inspiration into my new machine. I have a problem.... you get to help me figure it out.  You see, I know what my issue is, I just don't have all the time in the world to get it in writing in a manner that is "PC" and sensitive, so you get to do that for me.

I am about to post some images, some I have MAJOR issues with and the messages they send. Others I love what they say without saying much.

Here is the thing... I married an artist. He often attends "life drawing classes". We have portfolios full of drawings of nude models. My kids are welcome to look at those. I would FREAK OUT if my husband got into pornography or went to a strip club. One day we were explaining the difference to my kids about the drawing my husband has and the crap on the internet. Why the body is amazing and just fine as God created it.

Now...  you get to figure out the rest....

I will post some images some people in the fitness industry think are motivating - not to me.  Then I will post images that I would gladly post on my walls.

Can you tell me the difference?

Here is the crap I hate and what I see is wrong with the overall "fitness industry"....












Are you getting the message these people are sending out about what fitness is about?

Okay... now here are some images I LOVE!....

























I tried to find different levels of modesty and fitness levels to be fair and show that there are some GREAT things about the fitness industry media out there.  I wish I had hours and hours to write more for you and REALLY delve into the issue.  Maybe when I come back after this weekend I will take the time to really explain why I feel the way I do. HOW do the Images I put up as "negative"  impact our society.  And all that other good stuff.  In the meantime, I LOVE exercise!  I love what it does.  I love that I DO feel sexy and alive and wonderful.

Now YOU get to write the rest for me in your comments - please... comment.  I would love to hear from you.  I was about to say "Unless you disagree with my view - then don't bother"  :)  But no, really, go ahead. comment either way.

Thanks for taking the time with this for me.  I am heading off to a meeting to volunteer at the St. George Ironman 70.3.  I will be on a Kayak this time - not an SUP and I will be taking my life vest.  :)
