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.

Mindset Monday

Monday Vibes ✌️️hiding from the snow and working from home. Day one of our January group and loving the positive energy. Never go your fitness journey alone. I always used to feel so alone on my fitness journey. Not anymore. The more support the better.
.
Never feel ashamed for wanting to feel good.
Never apologize for ordering the salad.
Never feel guilty for making time to workout.
.
It’s hard to eat healthy, it’s harder to not feel good in your skin. You decide! 💛

This is ME

I used to hate my body.
Too muscular.
Not Feminine enough.
Too big.
No thigh gap.
Bulky.
It wasn’t until I found fitness that I started to learn to accept my body for all it could do.
I’ll never be a size 2.
I’ll never have a thigh gap.
And let’s face it, my back will always be wide.
But I appreciate it anyway.
I take pride in everything it does for me.
No thigh gap required.

Monday Motivation

A little extra on the thighs and all. This is one of those pictures that wouldn’t usually “make the cut” but I wanted to share it.
.
To all the women out there hating their legs….stop.
Your legs carry you through life. They allow you to run, jump, even just walk.
.
5 years ago I would’ve deleted this picture immediately. Now I simply see it as a picture that shows the strongest part of my body and now it’s something I’m proud of. Never be ashamed of your strength, your imperfections. It’s OK to show up to the world in a very BIG way. Stop playing small, pretty, and perfect.
