Same girl, different mindset. from constantly hiding my stomach to being proud of my body... 🙌🏼 in the left photo 6 years ago, you can see i was ashamed of my body. the hand over my stomach just shows that... 😖 and it makes me so sad that so many people are going through the same thing every single day. but don't worry, you can learn to love your body just like i have...
my fitness journey has not been an easy one. and if you're struggling: know that you are not alone. i've fallen for fads, been a victim of under-eating, and been through self-loathing... all to get to a body shape that i have now realised was unattainable and unhealthy for me. anyone else relate?
everyone's 'healthy' looks different. and it is a different body weight, which is why you shouldn't get hung up over body weight. for me, i need to include foods such as cookies and ice cream because remember: health isn't just physical, it is also mental. if i cut out these things, i will feel restricted. which is why i think having an inclusive diet is so important; so including lots of micronutrients but also including less micro-dense foods (aka foods for the heart that keep you feeling like you're not restricting anything).
find a way of eating and a type of exercising that you love. do it to feel good, to be healthier, and to be happier. and your body and your mind will thank you. 🙏🏼 #strengthfeed
i train 5x per week and do cardio for 20 minutes 1x per week (if i feel like it). i hit the same macros on training and rest days (full day of eating with macros included will be live on my youtube channel on tuesday), and hit 10,000 steps everyday (except today i'm having a day off that totally- we all need a total break sometimes, and i do not feel guilty about it 🙌🏼)
p.s i uploaded a new podcast today about losing stubborn f*t with @clare_pcosnutritionist.
