Your Best Self

I'm all about striving to be the best version of yourself that you can be. 

But you know what? Your best may NOT be at 10% bodyfat with 6 pack abs. I know mine isn't!  

Your best self may actually be you with a little more body fat, because that is when you feel most strong, most energetic, most happy, and most healthy. And that's what being your best self is truly all about, at least to me!

Abs are cool and all, and they require major dedication, no doubt about that. Just keep in mind that they aren't always the epitome of health.

My best self is me living life to the fullest- happy, healthy, balanced, and FREE. Free from stressing about every morsel of food I eat, free from obsessing about how my abs look from day to day, free from anxiety over food and workouts.

I fear that SO many people in fitness world are missing out on truly being their BEST... because they've been led to believe that it's about super low body fat and 6 pack abs. When in reality, it may be when you STOP striving for the 6 pack abs that you can truly become your best self!

So keep striving. Strive to be the best version of yourself that you can be every single day. Because every day that we're alive is a chance to be better, to be stronger, and to be healthier, both physically and mentally. Just always try to remember that being your best is not just about your outer appearance-it's so much more than that.
