To all the ladies out there –
Bathing suit season is creeping right up & every magazine on the stands is constantly reminding us to get a “bikini body,” whatever that means. I read a really inspiring blog post this morning & immediately wanted to post here, so I could share this with as many people as possible. Do you have any friends on instagram or follow any fitness accounts that constantly post pictures of their abs? I sure do. Do I use instagram to check out other peoples’ abs? Absolutely not.
Meg at A Dash of Meg is tired of it, too! Cheers to her for being so honest, open, & vulnerable letting all of her feelings out on body image. I could definitely relate to what she was saying & in some aspects, I’m sure everyone can. She decided to share these feelings after hearing about Molly Galbraith’s Love Your Body Challenge. NO, this isn’t a fitness challenge! NO, this isn’t a detox!
It’s about switching the focus to our capabilities & strengths, not our appearances. Molly is already on Day 3 of the challenge, but it’s not too late to jump in. Here is day 1 of the challenge: “Cellulite, Stretch Marks, & a Love Your Body Challenge” Are you hooked yet? See what fitness gurus, pros, & models are self-concious about. See if you can relate to them. What you find might surprise you, I certainly was.
I’m going to get my journal & hop in this challenge! 28 days isn’t forever & I’ve got nothing to lose & everything to gain. Join me!! Maybe by the end of March we’ll have a whole new perspective.
Happy TGIF 🙂
CHEERS to loving yourself inside & out.
