A different kind of #transformation
It changes everything. Looking at these two identical photos mind is torn between my current, positive feelings, and memories of a time when I would have torn apart this image limb from limb until I would literally hate myself and my body, despite all the amazing things I know it can accomplish. Are you aware of the powers of positive thinking? I used to HATE my body. I looked in the mirror everyday picking out the parts of my body I hated so much. Sound familiar? Of course it does - the vast majority of us go through phases of this, and I don't think social media helps, which is why I decided to share this. 🙅🏼
Instead of self-criticising, try self-appraisal next time. Don't focus on what your body looks like, focus on what it can DO. This photo was taken after a 20km bike ride, 7km run and 4 sprints across the sand. I am not fat, bulky or slow. I am STRONG. I am CAPABLE. And most of all, I am UNIQUELY ME. Mindset is everything.
