I know it’s been a bit since I have written anything but I have been doing life! It has been so good to me lately! I hope you all are doing well too!!
I wanted to get on here and share something that has been so heavy on my heart that I think many people in the fitness industry deal with. Hate on both ends of the spectrum!
I feel like in today’s society, we always shame ourselves or others for being “fluffy” or being heavier than we technically should be. We also feel shameful if we work our asses off and focus on ourselves. Some people call that “selfish”. Either way feels like we lose.
So how do we find a balance and love ourselves in all forms?
Personally, I have lost friends, followers, family. I have had people laugh at me, reject me, bad mouth me, tell me I would never reach certain goals, etc. But, I kept pushing. I kept doing what I felt was best FOR ME! Health & Fitness is a lifestyle and it doesn’t come easily. You have to be consistent. You have to put in the work and you have to ignore the negative noise around you. Remember this, People want you to do good, but NEVER better than them! That is what I always told myself when I would get upset someone was talking about me. So keep your chin up and do you!
I can also say, when I was larger, I was never happy with myself. I struggled with depression, eating disorders, anxiety, you name it! I didn’t learn until much later on that we have to accept ourselves in every single form. Much easier said than done, but if I would have learned to embrace myself earlier on, I would have reached my goals MUCH faster! Being healthy is much more than the physical part. You have to learn hard work ethic, discipline, dedication, and passion. There is no pill in the world that can teach you those things.
Be proud of yourself for making the choice to get healthy. This is your life, not anyone else’s. You have one body. Treat it with some respect! It is a process, and you have to learn yourself. Everyone is different but ultimately you know what’s best.
