Today I got some photos back for a project I’m working on. It got me thinking about why I started this blog in the first place.
Fit Freedom can have a million different meanings to each person.
To me, Fit Freedom means freeing yourself of expectations, standards, perfection, and comparison. There is no “perfect person”, there is no one else that you can EVER compare yourself to because no one is YOU. You will never have the same body as someone else because you are not them! I’m so tired of being hard on myself, and watching other people be so hard on themselves. What does putting yourself down do? Absolutely nothing.
You have to be your biggest fan.
I got these photos back today and my first reaction was, “dang, I could have looked better for this shoot. I should have prepared.”
I didn’t even glance at the joy on my face because I was too busy critiquing myself.
Truth is, the week before this shoot I started and finished a bag of Oreos, I ate out a lot with friends and my husband. I was injured and not working out. I had pizza 3 times that week. One of those times being the night before these pictures — and it was delicious. I got my period the morning of the shoot! I am only human and I’m far from perfect.
I had a week and a half notice for this shoot. So yeah, I could have cut my calories, planned my meals, and looked a little leaner. What’s the point? So my abs would show more?
I practice this healthy, balanced lifestyle because it’s maintainable and realistic. You’re not healthy if you’re miserable in the process. Constantly worrying about what you eat and how you look, that’s no life to live and be proud of. Being healthy is more than working out and eating kale for every meal.
That’s what I want to bring to this blog. My goal is for you to visit my site and feel good about yourself, and feel inspired. That’s what Fit Freedom means to me. I never want you to be here and compare yourself.
After looking at the pictures again, I saw genuine happiness from dancing to no music. I saw a healthy woman in all aspects. I saw a strong body, a healthy mind, and a positive spirit! I’m not perfect and I love it.
We weren’t put on this earth to judge people, including ourselves.
These photos represent a healthy lifestyle. I’m excited to share with you the importance of treating yourself right and being in love with yourself.
So I thank you for being here. Be your own biggest fan, my love.
Workout, eat right, treat yourself, sip that bubbly, but don’t be hard on yourself. You were made by a PERFECT God and He makes no mistakes.
all my love,
