👆🏼 so for gods sake, please tell yourself you are beautiful, please tell yourself you are strong, please tell yourself you are enough. 🙏🏼 I'm not gonna lie, life is insanely busy at the moment and I've not been coping very well. Mental health is something I struggle with on a daily basis and I considered getting rid of this @jessfit.ldn page out of fear that IG could be exacerbating my anxiety... I'm sure at least some followers may relate.
I decided that the joy that exercise and fitness brings me (alongside seeing my progress strength-wise) was enough to keep me here... but whilst I am here I want to be completely and utterly transparent with you all about mental health. 🙆🏼 I want to share whatever I'm struggling with so that my page becomes a reel of #relatable as opposed to #unobtainable 👈🏼 Because I really don't want to be just another showreel of abs that I've posed and contorted myself for 15 mins for. I want to tell you right now that I had a flipping full-blown panic attack on a treadmill yesterday morning 🙄🔫 and had to literally run out the gym crying and not being able to breathe, and how crazy embarrassing that was, and that I am brave enough to admit I am getting assistance to help me work through the anxiety and temporary bouts of ZERO motivation to do anything at all. Because seeking help is not weakness, it's STRENGTH - stronger even than those curvy gluteylicious gals we keep seeing. 🍑
There is nothing wrong with showing physical progress, but hell, I wanna share my #mentalprogress with you too because why wouldn't I use this platform to the best of my ability. If I'm relatable to one person and they feel less alone as a result then I've won💪🏼 Rant over now 😂 see ya. .
