It’s time to go deep here. I want you to think hard about the image that is driving you when you make food and fitness choices every day. What does that person look like? Better yet, who is that person?
Who Do You Want To Look Like?
Let’s be honest. Most of us have an image of what we want to look like. Usually it is either someone we admire at the gym, someone we saw in a magazine, or even an actor or actress on T.V. But why are we putting so much time and energy into looking like someone other than ourselves?
Life is short and you only get to live it once. Striving for an unattainable or unrealistic goal is a waste of your time and can be incredibly defeating. We should not be aiming to look like anyone else, but instead, we should be aiming to look like the best version of ourselves that we can achieve.
So, What Does Healthy Look Like?
Why let someone else decide the answer for you? The road to success isn’t a smooth one. It is full of bumps, potholes, hills and plenty of challenges. But when you have a realistic, attainable and healthy goal, it makes it that much easier to keep going when it gets tough.
Aim for progress- not perfection- in life.
Trust me, I have my good days and my bad days. I’m not always at my ideal weight or eating as well as I would like to be, but having a goal of being the best me I can be today- not tomorrow or a month from now- keeps me motivated and focused. I aim for progress- not perfection- every day.
Let go of any self-judgement or self-doubt, embrace who you are and what you can become and just go for it!
Celebrate your good days, embrace your bad days and keep it moving.
