I do eat whatever I want. I do love my boba teas. But I ALSO get my sweat on almost daily!!! 🏃🏻♀️🧘🏻♀️🤸🏻♀️ Honestly it’s about developing good habits so I don’t even consciously think about working out or eating my vegetables, I just do and love it and it’s a part of my everyday routine. I made some people upset when they found out I have stayed the same size since high school, even postpartum, and I often tried to come up with excuses to make myself look not as healthy as I strived to be. Why? Why do I need to make myself small to maybe please someone else? When I should be so darn proud of myself for working hard, developing good habits and trying to stay healthy! On that note, I have also learned that if your “friend” can’t be happy for you, she is not a real friend. I want to be a good role model for my daughters, and that includes accepting and loving myself for exactly who I am, all my strengths and weaknesses!
Do you smile and say “thank you” when someone compliments you? Or do you try to make excuses?
I am again reminded of @msrachelhollis’s #NYDY19 (each 🚫 is read as STOP) –
🚫 allowing the opinions of other people hold you back
🚫 explaining yourself to others
🚫 forgetting how far you’ve come
🚫 apologizing for who you are
Featured on this post is my beautiful mama friend who I love to pig out and work out with! We work out because we love to eat. We work out because we want to be strong and confident. We work out because the endorphins make us better moms! I have also been so blessed to find an amazing group of women and one hot mama rockstar fitness instructor at my gym, and the accountability makes a huge difference in wanting to show up, cheer each other on, and work hard toward our personal fitness goals!
