“I look at the woman I was in my 20s, and I see a young lady growing into confidence but intent on pleasing everyone around her.
I now feel so much more beautiful, so much sexier, so much more interesting. And so much more powerful.” 👑🐝 @beyonce .
Raise your hand 🙋🏻♀️ if you can relate with this quote.
This transformation did NOT happen overnight but it’s the result of 2 years of hard work. Not only at the gym, but also in the kitchen and mostly in my mind.
I had to reconsider everything I thought about fitness, about women and sports, about food. Because:
-NO, food is NOT the enemy.
-NO, carbs will not make you gain weight.
-NO, lifting weights will not make you muscular.
On the other hand:
-Food is MY FUEL.
-Carbs are essential for energy and muscle growth.
-Weightlifting has shaped my body like no other routine.
This is also the result of seeing working out as a BLESSING, not a chore. Because I am blessed to be able to MOVE MY BODY.
It is also the result of working out FOR FUN! Yes, your heard me! I don’t workout because I hate my body but on the contrary because I LOVE IT. And yes, weightlifting makes me feel a badass 💥 but I also do circuit training because I enjoy it as a form of cardio and resistance training.
For me, fitness is about SELF LOVE, EMPOWERMENT, BADASSERYYY! And I, wouldn’t do it any other way.
By the way ladies... the number on the scale in these 2 pictures is exactly the same! 🤯 Proof that it’s just a number and we should never ever rely on it as a measure of our progress. And while we are at it, if I have to be honest, the most important progress cannot be pictured. Because, FINDING TRUE BALANCE is the real deal.💁🏻♀️ 🎤 .
