I didn't always live by this or think about it, especially with the influence of other fitness social media accounts all around me. But there's something highly respectful and creative about being a fitness inspiration and displaying your results, progress, hard work to the world in a classy way.
I see so many Instagram women and men who are so easily caught in this trap of flaunting their bodies in inappropriate ways with captions that don't reflect their true value just for the hopes of "likes" and the addiction of craving compliments (whether they realize it or not) and justifying it by saying things like, "I'm proud of my hard work and proud to show it off ." Trust me, I can relate because I was caught up in that myself at one point but now that I understand my worth I realize that I don't have anything to prove to the world enough to sacrifice my dignity.
I've learned that I can still inspire others by showing them an example of healthy and fit living while keeping my photos classy. I just wanted to post this for those who might also be second guessing how they are displaying themselves to the world. My thought is... Will a photo of your "glute progress" in a thong doing the splits with hashtag #bootyprogress really make that huge of an impact on the world? I highly doubt it. Or if you're posting it to attract a guy, is that really the kind of guy you want to be with? Most women want a respectful guy who is going to be loyal. A guy who is liking pictures of that sort isn't ready for a relationship. If you do have a conscience and are wondering if the photo is appropriate to post then honestly it probably isn't. You're worth more than your body, remember that!
