“You look so skinny, go eat a burger” “Wow, she looks like she needs to go on a diet” “You’re getting too much muscle, you look manly” “You have no ass” “Is your ass fake”
In the almost 4 years since I started my fitness journey ALL of these things have been said to and/or about me enough times that if I had a dollar for each time I’d have a couple hundred. In my whole life? I’d have thousands of dollars. From naturally stick thin, to sick and suffering from anorexia, to binge eating/bulimia, to healthy and fit it’s NEVER stopped 🤷🏼♀️
What’s my point here? We so easily remember unkind things that are said to us, but too quickly forget the kind words spoken to us
TRUTH BOMB The same goes for our SELF-TALK, i.e our daily internal narratives. In this society, especially for women, it’s so natural and easy to pick ourselves apart. The internal narratives you think/speak and how you view yourself has a HUGE effect on you .
EXERCISE choosing positive self talk to improve your mental health 🧠 and EXERCISE your body to improve your physical health 🏼♀️
FITNESS IS MORE THAN PHYSICAL, mental health and progress counts too
