It’s so easy to get discouraged while you’re working on your goals. We log onto Instagram, scroll through pictures of fitness models with the perfect bodies, perfect lives and happy smiles. We think “why don’t I look like that?” We cannot forget that these men and women have worked so hard for what they have now. It takes years. It didn’t happen overnight. They worked hard, failed a couple times, and got back on their feet and worked even harder. That’s exactly what you have to do!
My favorite fitness model is @jellydevote – check her out. She posts “expectation vs. reality” photos of herself all the time. She shows her followers that she does not look “perfect” all the time.
Don’t obsess over other people’s progress. I follow certain Instagram models to help motivate me, but if any of them make me feel bad about myself, I unfollow. Don’t let social media rule your life. Stay focused and stay committed to your goals. If you get discouraged, it’s normal, we all do. But pick yourself back up and keep kickin’ ass.
