✨Comparison is the thief of all joy✨
Yoga was the first workout class I tried when I decided I could do more than a casual beach jog. I vividly remember feeling SO majorly insecure showing up on that mat like it was yesterday. I was overweight, had no clue what I was doing, and the room was like 100 degrees 💦🙈 There were tons of adorable girls who were tiny, fit, and rocking sports bras like it was no big deal and it made me feel even worse about myself. Like we do (and it’s so wrong!) in my head I thought it was so ridiculous and they were just trying to show off, but omg I wanted to feel that confidence so badly!!! I remember one day just absolutely dying and dripping sweat and thinking, “holy crap, this would be like one million times better in just a sports bra.” I hadn’t hit any major goals, and wasn’t feeling like “I could do that” 🙄, but then I turned to Ryan looking for reassurance and was like, “do you think I could?” Obviously he said “YES! Babe you’re beautiful. Who cares!” So I did and let me tell you, that was the most liberating moment ever! Talk about building confidence. It’s not like I magically felt amazing about my body, but i realized it didn’t matter! I was there, showing up and sweating it out and EVERY BODY is beautiful when you’re taking care of it!
I try to do yoga 1x a week still, but it hasn’t been happening lately and I NEED it! It always challenges me mentally and physically and is a good moment to look back and really see how far I’ve come + fill my heart up with so much gratitude 🙏🏻 I’m a huge fan of the @adidaswomen x @wanderlustfest collection for my yoga, and they are SUPER cute too! I put the link in my bio 👆🏻 for you guys to check it out 😍! #adidasWanderlust #ad
