Transformation Tuesday with a Twist 🌀✨ _______________________________________________
So I realized that I hadn't posted an updated transformation picture in a while so I figured I'd get to that on my day off. This is my shape as of this morning in comparison to my shape a few years back. Again all of my results have been attained naturally through a balanced diet, regular exercise, and consistency.
But I decided that this post would be a little bit different. By its nature alone social media tends to lack transparency, let's be real no one wants to post about the negative or unflattering aspects of their lives. But when it comes to body image social media can be a dangerously deceptive place for everyone, especially women. Between photoshop, cosmetic surgery, paid product promotion, extreme dieting, and unrealistic fitness accounts women are now holding themselves to an unattainable standard. We are forgetting one fundamental trait that we all have in common. We're human. And as humans we're not intended to be physically perfect or rock solid. Our skin folds, rolls,
stretches and ripples to allow us to be able to do our daily tasks. Why is that something to be ashamed or self conscious of? And yeah some of us may have cellulite, what about it? It's there and it's part of you so love that sh*t. The point of this post is to remind you that wellness/ fitness/ and self love isn't about having the lowest body fat percent possible or the most ripped six pack (because trust me there are plenty of people out there who are aesthetically pleasing but aren't healthy) it's about caring for yourself both physically and mentally to create the best version of YOU possible. Stop looking in the mirror and thinking about all the things you dislike about your body or wishing you could be someone else and instead start thinking about all the things your body does for you and how there's no one else built like YOU. Let's be the generation of men and women to break this cycle of self hate and negativity and replace it with self care, healthy mental and physical habits, and most importantly self love. With that said I'm out ✌🏼
