At what point did I start basing my self esteem off of the speed that I could run a 5k?
At what point did each and every single workout absolutely have to be an ass-hauling, dying session?
At what point did I take for granted my physical abilities and raise the bar so high I beat…
Some things you should remind yourself daily
- Your tummy is great
- You have really nice legs
- You have a really beautiful face
- Your hair looks rad
- You’re good enough
- Your body is 100% normal and acceptable.
- It’s yours and you should decorate it how you want
- You’re hella cute
Best response to the “are you on your period?” question goes to Leonardo DiCaprio
and still no Oscar
For as long as I can remember, I have hated my body. I would wear baggy clothes and rarely stand in front of a full length mirror - wearing a bikini was completely our of the question. But after joining the fitbrl community I realised that my body is beautiful, amazing and my beauty is not defined by society, but by me. And this summer I looked fabulous in a bikini.
indeed you look fabulous!
- Do not work out because you feel GUILTY.
- Working out is not a punishment.
- Do it because it is fun, because you like doing it, because you like who you become when you work out - but never do it out of guilt and shame.
- Do it with joy and love.
- If you had a cookie yesterday it does not mean that you have to forcefully add reps to your workout routine because you feel bad. ENJOY THAT COOKIE.
one big ass watermelon cut up in cubes… probs the last watermelon of the season :(
1. Don’t try to piss quietly. Nobody in a public restroom thinks you’re knitting in your stall. They came to piss, just like you. And if you have to take a dump, do it. Get over your fear of public toilets. It’ll make life a lot easier.
2. Masturbate. Masturbate a lot. Talk about it with your friends. You’ve got the right to make yourself feel good and brag about it just like all the boys with extra large kleenex packages on their desks.
3. If you want the large fries, get the large fries. Hunger and appetite are nothing to be ashamed of, just human. Don’t ever feel guilty for eating in front of others. You need to nourish your body to stay alive. We all do.
4. Laugh as loud as you have to, no matter if you snort or gasp or literally scream.
5. Fart when you have to.
6. Always remember you weren’t born to visually please others. Forget the phrase “what if they think it’s ugly”. If you think it’s lovely, it is lovely. You wanna wear it, wear it!
7. Speak your mind! You can learn to do so without insulting others or shoving your opinion down other people’s throats.
