The sun is shining, it’s finally about 32* and summer is right around the corner. Although I am not a fan of the concept of a “summer body”, there’s no denying the stress that comes out as the sun starts to shine. Finding acceptance with my body has not been an easy journey, as I am sure many of you can relate.
Being confident in your own skin is essential and sadly, so many of us are unhappy with ourselves. It’s so easy in today’s day and age to compare yourself to others. With airbrushed Instagram fitness “models”, celebrities who go on ridiculous diets, to all of the fad programs you see on TV, it’s no wonder why we can’t accept ourselves when the reality is so far from the expectations.
These false expectations cause many people to simply fail on their fitness journey because they never begin! The crazy part is that not starting and letting the comparison game define you can hinder not only your confidence in your body, but in your self worth. YIKES!
Okay, so beautiful, now it’s time to check your comparison pants at the door and learn to embrace the skin you’re in once and for all.
