As Iโ€™ve continued to heal my relationship with food, the scale, and my self image, my body has continued to change.โฃ

I think itโ€™s incredibly important to share where Iโ€™m at and be 100% transparent.โฃ

Iโ€™m happier in my own skin than I have ever been.โฃ
I am at a very healthy body weight & body fat percentage for my size and personal body. โฃ
My relationship with food is better than it has ever been.โฃ
I’m working to slowly increase my calories and maintain my weight.โฃ
I’ve lost some strength and am completely okay with it. It’s taught me to ease up my expectations and pressure on myself with my fitness and I’ve never felt happier about that.โฃ

There were times were I was incredibly unhappy and insecure with how I looked, yet continued to show up.โฃ
โฃ
There were times when I was struggling terribly with binge eating and sticking to a diet, yet continued to show up.โฃ
โฃ
And now as I repair my metabolism, health, and work towards the healthiest and happiest version of myself, I’m going to continue to show up.โฃ

To stop focusing on those last 5lbs and start creating some fitness goals to work towards. (๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ด๐˜ฐ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฃ๐˜ข๐˜ฃ๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ) โฃ
โฃ
When I asked what one fitness goal was you’d like to accomplish was in the comments, I realized a big disconnect…. โฃ
โฃ
“๐˜ต๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ถ๐˜ฑ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฐ๐˜ด๐˜ต ๐˜ฃ๐˜ข๐˜ฃ๐˜บ ๐˜ง๐˜ข๐˜ต” โฃ

Here’s the issue with this, these response were focused on the things these women wanted to ๐‚๐‡๐€๐๐†๐„ instead of the things they wanted to ๐€๐‚๐‚๐Ž๐Œ๐๐‹๐ˆ๐’๐‡. โฃ
โฃ
Reality is, we can spend all day wishing we would have a flatter tummy, lose 5lbs, or grow a booty. โฃ
โฃ
But we’re in for a big disappointment and a long frustrating ride when we realize that focusing on those things, often only makes us notice those “imperfections” we want to alter more and more without any real results. โฃ
โฃ
Instead, what if you flipped your focus to things like squatting more weight (๐˜ธ๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ฉ ๐˜ธ๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜ญ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฃ๐˜ข๐˜ฃ๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ง๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต๐˜บ). โฃ

Or getting your very first pull ups (๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ ๐˜ธ๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜ญ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฃ๐˜ข๐˜ฃ๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜จ๐˜ช๐˜ท๐˜ฆ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฎ๐˜ด ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ธ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ต). โฃ
โฃ
When we start to focus on the things we want to accomplish you’ll find you start to care a whole lot less about the things you want to change. โฃ
โฃ
You start to focus on ways you can work to improve. โฃ
You start to focus on finding workouts you enjoy and thrive with. โฃ
You start to celebrate small wins like doing one more push up, one extra rep, or that 1 minute off of your mile time. โฃ
โฃ
You start to care a whole lot less about how your body looks and focus more on what your body is capable of doing. โฃ
