I am motivated by feeling healthier from the inside out, to feel strong and able and to live a long and healthy life
Another thing that motivates me is looking my best, to wake up and feel confident about myself. I am motivated to one day be able to look in the mirror and think yes I look how I imagined I would look. I want to ask what a healthy motivation really is, can people go too far and what is too far?
For my body type I know that trying to achieve a body like Jessica Alba for instance isn’t attainable, she’s absolutely gorgeous but we have complete different body types
If pictures of celebrities motivate you then go for it, but be realistic, embrace your body type – give yourself a chance
We all want to be the best we can be, we want to look as good as we can, and this is totally normal but many people go too far and it becomes an obsession. An example of someone going too far is Nicole Ritchie, before and after below
The top picture of Nicole is curvier (still looks good) but I can see why she wanted to lose a few pounds. The second picture she’s lost the weight but I feel she’s gone too far. She was unable to find that happy medium! Health is wealth – find your happy medium, as I am currently trying to do!
Whether you’re slim, curvy or plus size, it doesn’t matter. Think about your goals and how you want to look and stick with it
Things to motivate you
- Keeping a picture that motivates you and matches your body type
- Imagining your goals happening now and feeling what it would feel like now
- Thinking about how you want to wake up every morning, for what ever reason. Healthier, energised, happier?
- Keeping a diary to see how far you’ve come
- Remembering health is wealth
Just a little food for thought today, thanks for reading
