I’ve been working out since probably the age of 15. I’ve done sports since I could walk ! So it’s fair to say I’ve never been unhealthily sized or hated my body . Looking at myself naked has never been upsetting and clothes shopping isn’t horrendous. But realistically I don’t have the perfect body. My legs could be slimmer, my stomach more toned , and I could not have kankles. I believe the reason I’m content with what I have is because I know deep down, I couldn’t put in much more than I already do to make my body what it is.
The reason we get upset and angry with what we see in the mirror is because you know you don’t try hard enough to change it, and you are frustrated with yourself.
I get a lot of people saying , I workout and I eat well but why have I not got results? The reality is , I know you had a sneaky chocolate once or twice. I know you skipped gym yesterday because you felt tired, and I know you had just a few drinks at the weekend.
Unfortunately all this adds up and the results from previous hard work is lost. 1 spin class and a salad – 1 snickers = 0 . Simple .
Obviously I’m only human. I did just eat a Creme egg because it’s Friday and I did hiit training this morning. But this week I ran, wrestled , boxed and weight lifted , and ate nothing refined. So with all that in mind, for myself I’ve worked hard enough to be satisfied with what my body is right now, + the Creme egg.
You don’t need to look like Gigi hadid to be happy (although she has banging legs). At the end of the day, you aren’t her, and you never will be. But you are you, and you can do the best with what you have got! If you do your best, you can be satisfied.
So put in the effort, train to your limit, eat clean and accept the results. You can only love your body if your body loves you. Feed it water it and work it. 💪🏼
