My Thickspiration: Monica Martin

I think that maybe I’ve accidentally misled some people about myself.  I am not losing weight to be more mainstream acceptable.  I am not trying to get my “groove” back.  It was never lost.

I’m losing weight and lifting weights to get my enforcer body back.  To give you a glimpse into my hopeful future, I’d like to intoduce you to my thickspiration: Monica Martin.

Here’s a video of a moment with her on Miami Ink, a reality show about a group of tattoo artists:

Just so we’re clear, it is not my goal to look exactly like her.  I think her bodyfat percentage is probably hovering around only 12-14% and I’m too old to be trying to do that safely.  I do however, respect her because she has the “Amazon trifecta” of strength, size, and agility.  These are things I consider important in a sexy human, and am working on mastering for myself.

So enjoy the show, and please everybody don’t mistake me for someone in pursuit of Barbiedom or the attention of couch potato mass appeal again.
