So I believe it’s important to be real and to say things like they are. For some reason I had this image set in my mind that I needed to look a certain way, to have this set body type, to manage my nutrition like some damn psycho trying to change their life. It’s okay if you love fitness (it’s great), it’s okay if you have your ideal body goal pasted on the wall, but it’s not okay to go at it with such intensity that you lose yourself along the way. It’s okay to better ourselves and to realize that we better our bodies by what we put in them. Nutrition is important but so is balance. If you want a damn 🍩 or 🍕 or 🍔 go get it, and if you want a 🥗 with some fruit 🍓🥝 then by all means do that. You can go outside and take a walk, jog for a whole minute, get outside and get active with your kids, go on hikes, go explore your city (I’m sure there’s a ton of things you haven’t even seen), but just move and be active. Don’t rely on a scale to tell you that you’re doing okay, that your weight is crazy or that there is a problem.
We were given these amazing bodies that have the capability of telling us when something is wrong. Listen to it, go see a doctor, find a routine that works for you, change your life up a little, but more than anything do what sets your soul on fire. Chase your dream job, go travel, move spontanisely if you have the chance, just don’t get so busy living that you forget about your life. Make memories, chase the moon, take in your surroundings, recognize your hard work, your many blessings, the small insignificant things we barely notice…choose to notice them. 🍃🌺🌍
My point is simply if you want to work out to feel better, to look better, to build up an endorphins rush, or to get healthier DO IT, but do NOT do it because you want to look like a specific person. It has to be done for you. You have to want it because of the benefits it can provide you with. But guys you are not all the same, were not all cheerios, be a damn fruit loop. You’re still beautiful, talented, and amazing even with struggles. Find out what you want in life, and go make it happen after all life is to damn short to be anything but happy.
🌴I realized that I liked working out. I loved how I felt after, I love how it takes away the stress and depression, I love that my body was burning calories and kicking out toxins. Fitness is great for me and I even love running. However, I do not like the fact that I was obsessing over specific foods, or busting my balls to try and look like a certain person. I was shooting for a goal to look like them, when I am ME! I already have a body, I’m not fat, but I do have a small baby pooch to lose. I don’t want to lose weight; I just want to tone up. I don’t want to obsess over it. I just want to make good choices and love this life I have.
Every single one of us have our own unique talents that make us stand out, we have our tribe that bring us joy, we have everything we love with us we just need to recognize that.
At the start and end of everyday~ look in the mirror and tell yourself you are a badass and you will accomplish anything you want. But be YOU! Find YOU! Do YOU!
Don’t get stuck in vortex trying to compare yourself or your life with someone else’s, it doesn’t get you anywhere.
👉🏻You want a 6 pack work for it, but because you want it. You want to lose weight do it because it’s better for your health, not because someone told you.
👉🏻You want a bad ass job or to move find a way and make it happen. It might not happen today or even in a few months but it will happen. Find your strength, willpower and determination and fight like hell to make your dreams and goals happen. ✨
👉🏻Just do you! Never ever forget to live. Chase your dreams not someone’s else’s. 🤘🏻
