Change your mindset…

I have a WIDE back that is comparable to a football player.
My arms are CHUNKY and much BIGGER than I’d like.
I have stretch marks on my thighs thanks to a body that grew far too LARGE and fast.
My thighs are thick and spread to the size of TEXAS when I sit.
I struggle with ACNE that could rival a 13 year old.
My stomach has ROLLS and JIGGLES when I move.
.
Let me rephrase that…
.
I have a STRONG back and shoulders that allow me to lift my own body weight in a pull up.
My arms are SOLID and can CARRY all I need.
I have TIGER STRIPES on my thighs that show I had a HEALTHY and THRIVING growth spurt where I was well nourished.
I am GRATEFUL for my STRONG thighs that allow me to step out of bed every single day.
My face is MARKED by my smile.
My STOMACH jiggles when I laugh, workout, and MOVE and for that I am so grateful

Self Love

To all the women who place your self worth on your external appearance…please stop.
You are not a Number
You are not a Size
You are not a Measurement
You are not Fat, Skinny, Curvy, or Chunky
What does define you is your heart, your kindness, your compassion, and your love for others. Never forget that. 💕👯

Let’s Talk… Comparison

Full honesty… this past vacation I struggled big time with comparison. Seeing one of the top coaches, my mind automatically starting shifting to how I could change to be more like her. How would my life be different… If I were thinner? Prettier? Different? Taller? Blonder?
.
For me, it’s always been that desire to be someone else, to be better. I only say this because I know as women we all tend to do this. If I looked like her, had her life, did what she does, then things would be different.
.
But here’s the thing… the world only needs ONE Bonnie Engle and the only person I will only ever be is ME. And guess what?! I can still help a whole lot of ladies as me.
Comparison is the thief of joy. You are perfect just as you are and sometimes we ALL need that reminder.
.
Take a minute today to think about something you LOVE about you… I guarantee someone out there is wishing they were more like YOU.

Monday Motivation

For such a long time I put off coaching simply because I didn’t BELIEVE I could do it.
I didn’t have a 6 pack.
I didn’t know enough people.
I didn’t feel COMFORTABLE posting to social media.
I’m just not the type of person who was ever really SUCCESSFUL.
Then one day I realized something… every single person starts at ground ZERO. If I was going to do this, I had to start somewhere.
.
And no I didn’t grow a 6 pack overnight.
I didn’t meet 10,000 people in one day.
I still was a nervous wreck about posting to social media.
But instead I DECIDED that I was going to believe in myself and BELIEVE that I could be SUCCESSFUL.
I am not a special snowflake.
I am not extra talented.
I just work really hard and BELIEVE I am capable of pulling this off… so I am 😉
Wanna join me?!
