Monday was the first time I’ve trained upper body in ...A while 🧐🙄
To be honest, I felt a little silly training in the gym. I felt weak and was adamant that my skinny arms resembled spaghetti - How f*ing stupid in hindsight, right? 🍝😟😂 I felt like it took a LOT of strategic posing (plus a muscle pump) to get this photo and, even so, I was less then excited to post it on ‘the gram’
But the more I thought about it... If a friend felt the same way about themselves, I would wonder how they could feel down about something so insignificant when all I can see is their copious amount of AMAZING qualities!! I don’t judge others by their physical appearance, so why the heck should I judge my own?
I think a lot of us get into the headspace where, in the moment, one little thing makes us feel less then adequate in all areas. For me it’s typically my long lanky arms, acne scars, stretch marks, cellulite and super thin skin on my thighs. This way of thinking is completely disproportional and I think it’s time to take a step back, be our own best friend, tell ourselves how DAMN FINE we really are (even if we don’t believe it just yet!) and get on with being ourselves - Because we really are the best! 😉❤️
