Progress over Perfection

One of the most important things to remember in your fitness journey is that progress is way better than perfection! I am SO happy with my progress so far, I am not ripped to shreds, and I do have fat in my problem areas, but it is all part of the process 🙂

The problem with most girls and their body images these days, is that they all look on social media for the “perfect body” or the body that all guys deem to be “hot”. I am even guilty of thinking that I need to have a completely flat stomach and a thigh gap in order to be pretty and likable. I want to tell you this is NOT TRUE! Any one who tells you that you need to have those things in order to be beautiful is lying! Every girl is beautiful in their own way, yes that is a cliche saying, but I mean that every girl has something about themselves that is unique and beautiful to someone else. 🙂

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset I took this picture this morning before my gym session 🙂 As you can see, I do not have shredded muscles and I am not “skinny” or “lean”, but I am proud of my progress and I am only one month into my new training program! So I am excited to see my results later on. Tracking your progress is also a very good way to stay motivated and remind yourself of how far you’ve come. Sometimes you just need to look at yourself, love your body and enjoy the process. It won’t be easy, but it is worth it! One thing that I have realized is that looking at Instagram models and comparing myself to them is NOT HEALTHY! So for any girls who think that they need to look like the Instagram models, here is a tip: STOP IT. Follow real people who are going through the same process as you, it will be much more motivating and rewarding ❤
