Real life ladies SWIPE LEFT! .
36 hours in-between photos. One taken by my son on the left and the other a screen shot of today’s workout video peeling myself off the floor half way through going in for a second round
I just wanna be clear that nobody’s life is as glamorous, perfect or put together as their social media might have you believe.
You might have been comparing yourself to me or others, but please know I am a real person too. I struggle, I sweat, I fail, I have a cardiac condition, I have an old back injury from a break, I have rolls, have been 65 pounds heavier, I’m tired, and have cellulite. I also fight with my wife, snap at my kids, lose my patience and can’t seem to be on top of all the million school events/theme days/trips/forms ... I do and FEEL all the things that every other human does. .
For years, I compared myself to others who looked like they had it all together, which led to me thinking I was totally not good enough to achieve what others seemed to be conquering and doing for themselves. It was all lies I told myself. I was perfectly & equally capable as any other. So I vowed to let you in on the REAL me- both my highlights, but also what life looks like behind the scenes. .
So no comparing, k? NO MORE “ I wish I had her motivation, her energy, her anything” — Because behind her is just as much or even more of a daily struggle than you know. I do things and have angles that I am proud of, sure, but I also do things and have angles that I’m not. Both are a requirement to LIFE. .
So when you look at your body and life and see lots of imperfections, know that you’ve got lots of beautiful parts too. It is in our resistance to SEE all the beauty inside us and our true capabilities that make being stuck or not reaching needed goals persist.
Having rolls, no motivation, being tired, failing, & making mistakes doesn’t make you a bad person. It makes you human. One beautiful amazing unique human my friend. Welcome to the club. There’s like 7 billion of us.
