Many of us deal with ourselves in ineffective ways when we give in to temptations. In the health and fitness world, that could mean you've ditched your workout in favor of binge-watching your favorite Netflix show or you've given in to that doughnut that's been on your mind for a while. -
In any case, it's not uncommon to be left feeling crappy and guilty. But such feelings come at a cost, and that's how things can get really messy. The guilt and the overall negative affect you experience only serves to increase your stress levels. If there is one thing you need to know about stress, it's that it causes you to do all kinds of counterproductive things. -

I posted this yesterday and deleted it. I do that a lot. Why? Because I was raised with the mindset that my body is something to be concealed. That a picture like this is immoral, dirty, asking for the wrong kind of attention. Today I’m laughing at myself and posting it anyway, because I know that in reality it’s a progress picture that represents something I’ve worked hard on. Something I’m proud of. And that’s something to be shared.
• flashback friday •
I told someone today that I’d lost 30 pounds and they said “let me see before & after”. That’s when I realized that I hadn’t put a photo side by side to see my progress because I’ve been so frustrated with myself for not already being at my goal. Then, I saw this! And I finally took a second to tell myself that I’m doing alright & I can celebrate my progress instead of beating myself up for taking the slower route.
Sometimes we get caught up in how far we think we still have to go to be “where we want to be” that we forget to be proud of our success so far. The picture on the left was one year ago and the right was last month. I might still have goals to reach, but I’m going to take a second and be happy with where I am.
IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!! 🍰
Extremely productive start to the day! Up at 5am for a meeting in #London 🤞🏼 Now time to head back up north to celebrate my birthday with @natalieadunn ❤️ Perfect day!
This is where I’m at 6.5 months postpartum extremely happy! Still yet to test my strict and push press 🏋🏼♂️ Really loving training with my headphones in & at my own pace for my strength/mental health also generally just feeling good about myself! Fitness isn’t comparing yourself with others and their journeys its all about your goals no matter how big or small! You got this 🧘🏼♀️🤸🏼♂️🚴🏻♂️🏌🏼♀️⛹🏻♀️🏀🎾🥕🍏🌞🏃🏻♂️💫

I haven’t worked out in at least a month 😅 & it’s not like I feel bad about it, I just miss how I feel when I workout. I don’t like overwhelming myself in guilt or anything because honestly I KNOW I’m not perfect & I’m okay with that. So here’s my advice to you if you’ve “dropped the ball” in your exercises: what’s done is done, just move on and get back at it 🤗 either way YOURE BEAUTIFUL!
No he hecho ejercicio en por lo menos un mes 🤭 pero no me gusta sentirme mal por dejar de hacer ejercicio como quisiera porque YO SE que no soy perfecta y que la vida a veces te lleva en otro rumbo. Entonces mi consejo si te sientes mal por no seguir tu regime de ejercicio: lo que está hecho ya está hecho, solamente empieza de nuevo y sigue adelante 💕 de todas formas ERES HERMOSA!
