Body image is something that I used to struggle with. I used to feel uncomfortable with how I looked. I would do HIIT workouts day in and day out and eat good foods.
The hashtags #fitchick #fitgirls would be what I would look up to and inspire to be with but now my outlook has changed completely.
My mindset and focus isn’t to jump to exercise if the scales fluctuate and I don’t think to myself that I need to burn off the extra calories or restrict my food.
Instead, I fuel my body with foods that I enjoy and eat balanced and I do the things I enjoy, I go out for meals, I drink alcohol, I have desserts and I am happy and feel better than I did before.
We need to exercise in a way that makes us feel good and also learn to love the body that we have.
