More and more often it is brought to my attention how much society influences our thoughts on what "beautiful" is. The world of health and fitness lately has not been depicting a good representation of what "being" fit is or looks like in my own personal opinion. When you are starting a fitness journey, it's easy to get caught up in an "image" of what you think you should look like and we are basing those thoughts on what the cover models look like. Sadly, the images we are looking at are highly photo shopped and the models are being pampered by a team of professionals. If we are in constant comparison with the photo shopped image, how are you going to ever feel like you compare?
There is not one ideal body type and there is no right or wrong one either. Real women have curves, real women have imperfections, and real women have insecurities. We need to learn to love our bodies for what they DO rather than how they look. Our bodies are a gift and blessing that we should not take for granted, however this happens often.
You need to see and view yourself as a powerful machine that is meant to serve you and provide a quality life for you if you treat it right. You need to start viewing your body for performance and the ability to allow you do move, think, workout, and do all the things you want to in life. The easiest step is to just appreciate yourself on the daily! Take the positive approach and love your body. Don’t wait until you achieve your goals to love your body because your health and fitness routine should enhance your overall life from the very beginning.
To make it simple, you need to love what you are TODAY and keep improving on it ! You will never reach a point of satisfaction because you should always be learning and wanting more out of your life! Do what you enjoy and don't try to fit into a certain mold just because others are doing it.
Every single day is a gift and blessing to you. Don't worry about other people and don't worry about what others have. If you focus your life on what you have in the present moment you will begin to see the endless opportunities that you have right in front of you. Stop wishing for it to be easy and learn to work through all the hard times because it will be so worth it in the end !
YOU ARE AMAZING .. DON'T FORGET THAT !
