Lets Talk Body Goals

The term body goals is so funny to me. What even is body goals? Is it a term only reserved for 5’11 Victoria’s Secret models or is it a term used to describe Olympic Athletes? Both? So why don’t you classify your body as #goals?

I think it’s safe for me to assume that each and every one of us have been self conscious about something at one point in our lives. It’s human nature not to be confident 100% of the time. So, why do we pick out every little flaw instead of picking out the beautiful things that make us who we are? Simple…we compare ourselves to others too much. We are always trying to be that guy/girl over there. Little did you know, there is someone pointing at you saying I want to look like him/her. Remember nobody is perfect!

The best thing I ever did was get rid of my scale. I was focusing so much on a number that it didn’t matter how I looked. Remember muscle weighs more than fat. I probably weigh more than I used too but I’m happier in my own skin and that’s all that matters. Everyone is genetically different and thats what makes people so beautiful. Life wouldn’t be as fun if everyone looked the same. Embrace your curves or your height or whatever makes you different from the person sitting next to you. I could list off 20 things I’m insecure about but dwelling on them isn’t going to do anything. Give yourself goals, write them down, and achieve them. Get outside and exercise with a friend if you don’t enjoy going to the gym alone. Eat healthy but remember you deserve a cheat every now and then. Encourage the people in your life to do the same.

We are all our own worst critic and the way you see yourself isn’t usually how the rest of the world sees you. I know this because I’m also a perfectionist. I have high expectations for myself in every avenue of life and will work my hardest to achieve them. Go easy on yourself from time to time. You deserve a rest day and vacation. Don’t let little things people say hinder you from achieving something great. You are beautiful and handsome! Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
