Zooey Deschanel ‘doesn’t work out to be skinny’


I love “inde” girl Zooey Deschanel, not only does she have the cutest sense of style but her dry demeanor and dead pan countenance gets me every time. She is beautiful but not typical, by Hollywood’s casting she is the “Other” girl not the blonde beautiful girl, or the bombshell rather the dark haired sidekick with the sense of humor. I came to really like her when she did 500 days of Summer, but what really makes me a fan is what she says about being “thin”. In an interview with Self Magazine she was asked about her concept of working out to be- or stay skinny here’s what she said:

“That’s so boring, and it seems like a depressing goal for a modern woman,” Deschanel said. “I work out to be healthy and because I like it.”

That’s the idea, modern women are so much more than our bodies!!!. If you workout and take care of yourself because it makes you feel good then you might actually feel better about yourself regardless of what you look like in that moment. I think that sometimes we are so concerned about the “pay off” or the “end game” that we don’t experience, let alone enjoy the process, and the t’ruth is – everything is about the process. Life is about the process. When we have a goal, be it a body goal, or a career goal when we reach it, it’s done! (then we have to set another one) but the moment of arriving at the goal is just that a moment. Think about it you spend 4 years in high school and the graduation is all of and hour and a half, you flip that tassel and it’s done! If you spent the 4 years thinking about that moment when it comes and passes it tends to be anticlimactic. Do the things that you love and love the things that you do!
