MY #STRENGTHFEED SECRET
The link to watch this new YouTube video is in my bio @laurenfitness 🙊
Also... I want to talk about fearing weight gain. Yesterday during #TicknersTips (this is the daily Instagram story discussion I do, where I answer one of your questions), I touched upon this subject. But I want to speak about in a little more in depth.
I used to fear gaining weight, gaining fat. I used to want to have as little body fat as possible. I sacrificed my mental (and physical) health for this 'goal& #39; . But I didn't realise the long-term damage doing this was having on me... both physically and mentally.
Now, however, I realise that in order to become STRONGER, gaining weight (and fat!!!), is going to happen. It is inevitable. And that is OK! Just because my abs are fading doesn't mean I am less 'fitness& #39; ... just because someone does not have big glutes, does not mean they should not be considered as part of the fitness community. Just because you may not have popping delts or big biceps DOES NOT MEAN YOU CANNOT EXPRESS YOUR LOVE FOR FITNESS.
Today, my mum came to the gym with me. (YouTube video to follow. And she squat 60kg!!!!). She's a little overweight, but she has NO shame in being in the gym and even potentially making a fool of herself. And this is how it should be! Everyone is in the gym for THEMSELVES: I doubt they even take note of you! So even if you may not be in shape (yet), DO NOT BE ASHAMED. YOU are killing it even by just being there. And that should make you PROUD! #StrengthFeed
FULL DISCLOSURE: the reason why I post booty pose photos like this👆🏼is because I know that they will do well on IG, thus enabling me to reach more people. Nope, they're not very 'me& #39; - but my aim is to help as many people as I possibly can. 🙏🏼 that's the truth and I give thanks to @lawrence_sbs for helping me get the courage to tell you that! #Honesty #Always
