Is that my muse whispering wisdom to me?
I guess she's back, I've been writing daily for a week.
Serait-ce ma muse qui me murmure sa sagesse ?
Je suppose qu'elle est de retour, ça fait une semaine que j'écris quotidiennement.
It’s Fri-YAY everyone! Hope you’re all doing wonderful 🍂☕️💫 •
Today, I’m going to enter the Rep Search created by the wonderful Stefie over at @stefiereads & @whitesaturdayco for her #whitesatrepsearch
To start off, my name is Hana (it is a pseudonym since my name is literally one-of-a-kind & is easy for anyone to find me 👀😅), I am a 22 yr-old college student from Europe but currently live in Florida, U.S., and I am utterly obsessed with books, candles, bookmarks, being outside with nature; any little thing that makes me happy and makes me feel whole ♡ I would take pleasure in becoming a rep for White Saturday & Co because your bookmarks, Stefie, are absolutely gorgeous, so simple yet they make such a statement. I would be so happy to include your bookmarks in my photos as I have a creative side and love for people to see what I can do 💫 thank you for this opportunity & goodluck to everyone else ✨ #whitesatrepsearch
Looking good is not more important than feeling good. ❤️
Yes, let me get this out there, I love my abs. In every shape they take and they are one of my favorite parts of my body. However.. the cost of having those abs on the left was too high a price to pay. *
That photo was in the spring of this year when I was in preparation for a competition. I had peaked pretty early. So my job was to maintain that figure for another 6 weeks. Oh boy..
I was working out 5 times a week, Depleted, lighter than I’d been since my teen years, tired, hormonal and moody as hell, and my past binge eating and body dysmorphia issues came back with a vengeance. That’s when I decided, with the guidance of a phenomenal lady, to back out of competing. Even though it is an incredible thing to see all of my friends and fellow fitness aficionados competing, and kudos to all of them, I realized its not for everyone. That figure is not sustainable long term, and not meant for the average fitness person like myself. I don’t believe the figure I have on the left should be considered #fitnessgoals for any time except times like competition. ❤️
The right photo was taken this month. My abs are there, but they are relaxing in a cloud of healthy body fat and joy. I took some time to get back on track and my mental health is 💯! I workout 3-4 times a week max and I eat lots! 🙈 and I’ve never felt stronger. ❤️ However, happiness was always the number one goal for me, and I’m thrilled to finally have it back.❤️
So remember next time you are scrolling through and see those ripped abs and tight tushies, that not everything is what it seems. Do not base your goals on a picture. Do not set your standards based on the body type of another. ALL bodies are different and require different methods to achieve the desired results. If you aren’t sure what method to take for yourself, or have tried everything and nothing seems to work, or maybe you have reached a plateau?
DM Me, Id be happy to chat about it with you! ❤️
Stay Awesome, but most of all Stay Happy. ❤️
