Sorry for the lack of posts lately, I’m just finishing up the last few weeks of the semester, and boy oh boy am I busy!! All I seem to have been doing the last 6 months, is work and school… so you can imagine how excited I am for the end of April… then I get 4 months off and tons of time to make money for my next semester. For those who don’t know, I am taking personal fitness training. I love working out… its one of my favorite things to do and I want to share my passion with other people and get them pumped to sweat too!
I posted a while back about the hype lately over accepting ones body, you can read it here.
Last week in one of my classes, I had to talk about my personal philosophy and why I will be a great (fitness) leader. My main point was to accept people as they are and to help them work out their insides too- meaning, not everyone is going to look like a body builder or a fitness model and the sooner they and everyone else accepts it, the sooner they can get on a path to health and happiness. I also wanted to let my classmates know I have heard some unacceptable comments from them in regards to overweight people and even just people who don’t have an ideal body, and it made me sad. It makes me sad that people in my ( soon to be ) profession have such negative views on bodies ( not every one of course) and I want to be part of the change. In fact, lets all be part of the change! Next time you are about to say ” ugh, I’m so fat” consider who is going to hear you say that…. probably someone bigger than you. Not to mention what negative self talk does to the person saying/thinking it. So, lets employ positive body talk and encourage everyone else to as well, and workout because it makes you feel good- it really does, trust me!
Anyway, I hope to be posting on a regualr basis soon and have some outfits to share with you and summer fun! In the meantime, lets all make a point to make positive body comments and keep negative thoughts at bay!
