I was sitting at my desk today, browsing all my healthy social media pages that I do every day, and an interesting article popped up. Let’s start loving our bodies: http://www.fitnessmagazine.com/mind-body/image/confidence/?socsrc=fitfb1501218
I really like this article as I feel that we often focus on the wrong things. We focus on the fact that we are not a size 6 yet, or the fact that even though for the last month I have been killing myself at the gym, I am beating myself up about eating that one slice of pizza, or I still have some cellulite at the top of my legs. Weightless is so much more than the way you look. It’s about how you feel, if you are healthy, if you making this a life change and not just a temporary one.
The other part of the article I really like is the fact that you should be nice to yourself. I found myself at the gym this morning yelling in my head that I am fat, I am lazy and the reason that I am having a hard time is that I gave up. When in reality, I got injured and couldn’t go to the gym. I am having a hard time getting back to going to the gym every day/twice a day and eating perfectly all the time. Maybe I only spent 2 hours this week at the gym… but at least I am trying. I am trying to get back to where I was… so I didn’t give up. I have just hit a road bump.
Moral of the story is that we need to not be so hard on ourselves. We are human….. we will never be perfect.
