Stop worrying about an end goal or a result. Stop comparing yourself to people who are more in shape than you. Instead, just show up. Every time you show up to the gym, every time you choose a healthy snack, every time you get your running shoes on and go for a run you have won. It's not about where you are now. It's about the little daily decisions you make towards changing your body and getting fit and healthy. Every decision you make today will shape your tomorrow.
Just show up, and you have already won 💪.

Loving my all white @fabletics gear for Spring/Summer! I've been obsessed (as you guys know) - especially w this comfy "Mila Impact Sports Bra" 😍 bc it supports me where it's most needed & the "Mila Pocket Short" which allows me to insert my phone or keys while on the go/working out! Am I the only only obsessed here!? 😩 #MyFabletics#Ad#MoveinFabletics (link in bio)
We all associate places, people, even smells and noises with good or bad feelings. Think about what music makes you happy... what place you feel most comfortable in...
Fitness shifted the things I turn to for happiness. The gym became a place I associated with strength both mentally and physically... and there’s no going back now😂🤩 I’m super open on here about my past struggles with food being something I turned to uncontrollably when stressed out. Around January, I started forming this habit of whenever I wanted to give into cravings at night, I would go walk a mile uphill at the gym which was close to my dorm. I did this because I realized the gym was a place I associated with stress relief, confidence, growth, and overall happiness.
Yesterday I would have rather done anything else but workout at night. It was so hard to drag myself up, but I finally got out of the house at 9pm. This voice in the back of my head told me I’d feel so much better if I went. And *shocker* I felt amazing once there and had an incredible workout.
So what do you associate with stress relief? What places make you feel confident? What habits make you feel accomplished? Just like our minds associate food with happy feelings (and chemically function that way) the endorphin pump you get from exercise much less the overall feeling of accomplishment is UNMATCHED. Even while fighting the restiveness of prep, I realize I associate my staying on track with positive feelings toward myself...so it is easier to stay focused with this mindset.
If anyone is feeling down today, or far away from their goals, I’d say the best thing you can do say to day is rethink what you associate with positive feelings. Did you ever have a really good gym session and told yourself “I really gotta do that more!!” What stops you from then going more often and when you need a mood boost??? Even now I forget that my workouts make me feel amazing, and see them as more of a dread or a task. It’s an incredible gift to be able to work our bodies. 💪🏼💛
Here's The backpack, my travel companion🌍, gym buddy 💪 and every day carrier 😂
But really have so many stories to share that it will be included in
Do you have any objects that are like a part of you? (Except from your smartphone 😅)
About 80% of my fitness journey has always been focused on gaining weight & building a booty/curves. I was always so insecure about how thin I was especially with having an already naturally athletic build. Seeing as this is the biggest I’ve ever been, I’ve found myself being so insecure & like I need to be a twig again. It wasn’t until I found that photo on the left and remembered how badly this was what I always wanted. I’m strong. I’m powerful. I’ve gained so much experience. I’ve gained so much knowledge. I’m capable of so much more. I’m built. My booty is bigger. I can see my hamstrings. - & all of those are things I craved
I was really disappointed in myself with my weight gain but now I’m like woah wait a minute. You’ve worked so hard for this for 3 years & the person on the left would kill to look like the person on the right. So are my current goals to lean out a bit? Yes. Am I proud as hell to have come this far? Absofreakinglutely.
Moral of the story - be proud of what you are. Do not beat yourself up for what you are not. Praise yourself for how far you’ve come. Love & be proud of your body at every stage. & don’t be afraid to work toward something new w an open heart🌟 you are limitless w a brilliant machine (the body) - work w it not against it💓🤘🏽
