Giving yourself credit…

If I squeeze and flex reallllly hard, I can see some baby abs😜. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
But as soon as I eat or drink anything…poof, gone. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I’ve had abs before but the things I had to sacrifice to get there aren’t worth it to me anymore. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I want date nights out. I want to enjoy dessert. I want to feel fueled and strong, not depleted and weak. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I have to carry a very low body fat% to not have a pooch and that sh*t isn’t fun to maintain.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I carry a lot of my body fat in my midsection…first place I gain and last place I lose it. This is how my my body is and I’m okay with that (most of the time😉 I’m still human and have bad days).⁣
⁣⁣
If I put all of my focus on having abs as the only sign go of success with my health & fitness…I would feel like a failure every day. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It’s easy to compare your body to others and wish you looked like them but when we do this, we miss all of the other things we’re successful with. ⁣⁣

Heading into this week, make sure you’re giving yourself credit for all of the goals you’re crushing…because having abs is great but it isn’t the finish line you need to cross to be healthy or fit.
