⚡️⚡️REALITY CHECK ⚡️⚡️
With the build up to summer well underway and competition season in full swing you are being bombarded now more than ever with pictures like this.
Pictures of completely unrealistic and unsustainable bodies. In this picture I am hungry, dehydrated and tanned up to the max by the wonderful @fakebakeheaven 💅🏽 It's important to also note that in the weeks before and after competition most of us have shoots lined up and are generally snappy happy so that we can continue to post pictures of ourselves in peak shape even when we aren't. I don't look like this anymore, I didn't look like this two days after competing when I was carbed and watered up.
This is not what healthy looks like, it definitely isn't what balance looks like. I'm not willing to sacrifice my social life, human connection with friends and family, my sanity, my freedom, my quality of life just for abs and neither should you!
At this time of year it's particularly important to take SM with a pinch of salt and stay in touch with reality. Base your goals around something more achievable, sustainable and healthy!
Remember that unless you do the work on yourself within, develop and become the best version of yourself internally and can carry yourself with pride in who you are and stop paying mind to the opinions of others, you won't love yourself any more at a size 6 than a size 20 and that is a promise. ❤️ Be brave, be kind, be compassionate, share your light, do things you love, feed your passions, be the change you wish to see in this world 🌎 wether your abs are out to play or cozy under a layer of perfectly lovable flab.
Your body is here to serve you, don't ever let it be the reason you tear yourselves down 🦋 (Keto post still coming, I just wanted to get this out there today. Bare with me fam 💜)
