I was working out with my kids yesterday in one of my stories, and a girl sent me a message in response to it, and told me to put a shirt on.
Here is my public response: If you don't like the way I show what REAL LIFE looks like- that's real life with a stomach that will always have skin (because #threekids), real life trying to be consistently healthy for my family, real life with the good, the bad, AND the ugly- then there's an UNFOLLOW button for a reason. Feel free to use it.
I'm never gonna be that girl who puts herself out there and isn't REAL about it. This is my body, this is my life, and I'm not going to be on here every single day pretending that it is something that it isn't. So while there are a million poses, outfits, and filters that I could use to cover up my flaws and imperfections, I'd rather not.
I know that I wouldn't feel comfortable to ask for help from someone that seemed to be perfect in every way and seemed to always have it together. Instead, I know that I would rather work with someone that I could relate to, and that I could open up and talk to.
So will I put my shirt on when I work out in MY stories? Ummm not if I don't want to. Will I feel confident enough to rock the body I have, perfect or not, and be proud of all the progress I have made? HECK YES I WILL.
Again, there's an unfollow button. Use it, and TBH, I probably won't even notice. 😏
