21 Instagram Accounts You Should Be Following

I spend a lot of time on Instagram; admittedly far more time than I should. I always think of that quote that’s been floating around the internet about how many miles I’ve scrolled with my thumb and get depressed over the sad reality of the situation, but for me Instagram has sort of become a part of my daily routine. I have lots of friends on Instagram. I am a part of a group chat with women from all over the world and would be lying if I said a lot of my motivation doesn’t come from them. To avoid the app would be nearly impossible at this point, but one positive to come from my endless scrolling is the discovery of some pretty amazing human beings that brighten my day, and that you should know about.

Fitness

@cheymarie_fit

Cheyann is one of the most inspirational people I’ve come across on Instagram. She is battling ovarian cancer like a boss and inspires me every day with her attitude and smile!

If you look really closely, you will see some baby booty gains making an appearance and a little hammy popping 😊🤷🏼‍♀️🍑 – – My body has changed so much in 5 months, but give me another 6 months and I’ll be almost back to where I was before cancer. My goal when I beat this cancer is to get back on the stage under those bright lights and work it💪🏻🏋🏼‍♀️ – – I can use cancer as an excuse to not workout, but instead, I use it to fuel me and motivate me. God has given me the strength to continue to lift (not as heavy obvi🙃) and he continues to give me strength and courage to keep fighting🙏🏻💙 – – #fuckcancer #ovariancancer #seattleseahawks #bestself #selflove #npc #npcbikini #ifbb #npccompetitor #bikini #bikinicompetitor #bikinifitness #bikiniathlete #fitlife #fitspo #fitlife #follow #inspiration #happiness #womensfitness #womenshealth #motivation #squat #squatspo #country #countrymusic #countrygirl #smile #godisnotdead

@linnlowes

Linn has some of the best fitness videos on Instagram, many of which I try to incorporate into my own routines! She also has her own YouTube account where she shares nutritional advice and even more fitness routines with her 20k+ subscribers.

 

@likeagirl_fitness

Jill might be one of the cutest humans alive, and runs her own online store where she sells apparel and her very own fitness guide! Plus she blesses your timeline with photos of her new puppy Chief on the regular, and who doesn’t love puppies?

Happy FriYAY friends! After a long and dragged out brainstorm 😅 I have finally decided what my first blog post topic will be about! In just a few weeks 💪LIKEAGIRLFITNESS will be turning 1! 🙈 Lol. #proudmomstatus and as we lead up to the big shabang 🎈🎉 I would like to take a moment to recognize seven hardworking, ambitious, self-propelled #BOSSBABES While I already have a few names in mind I would love nothing more than to hear your thoughts and recommendations! So the question is … Who inspires you? Who empowers you? Who’s self made success has made you think once or twice about chasing your own dreams? Keep in mind this is not about numbers, not about followers and not about money. This is about passion, imagination, and heart. And this is about having the courage and confidence to pave your own path. Throughout the next week I will be putting together a list of my top seven picks and following up with an interview. So what I need for you to do is tag or comment your favorite #BOSSBABE below so that I can expand my horizons to the fullest. ❤️ #SHINEEVERYDAMNDAY

@mikutas

Jacqueline’s moody photos and cool street style set her apart from other fashion bloggers. I actually found her through Pinterest after pinning so many of her photos that I knew I had to follow her account.

 

@juliahengel

Julia of galmeetsglam.com is one of my favorite fashion accounts. If I could pick one word to describe her feed it would be “happy” and I think we all need more of that in our timelines.

 

Yoga

If you’re not following her already, Sjana is one of the best yoga accounts in the game. I personally love reading her captions, often tagged #writtenbysjana, for inspiration.

@the_salty_blonde

This New Yorker is funny, beautiful, and has a very genuine approach to her account. I find myself laughing out loud at her honesty often. Her sense of humor alone makes her a must follow.

Selena-esque vibes. #bidibidibombom
