Make This Summer NOT a Bummer!
Updated: Jul 5
Hey there gorgeous! I’m glad you stopped by to read this… Warm weather here in Kentucky (YAYYY!!) and if you are anything like me, I can the smell the BBQ smokin’ from a mile away. I see the tater salad, baked beans, and corn on the cob all on the picnic table. I’m ready for some watermelon and anything that’ll keep me cool, calm, and collected. What about you?
I remember when I was a kid, we would go to my grandparent’s house, get a fresh watermelon from their garden and DIG IN! I could never spit those black seeds, so I always had to use a fork.
I also know summertime can be a difficult time for many in terms of body image and self-esteem. It can be a time where ya think you have to lose weight, get in shape, for that summer “bod”. You fear that in order to wear a 2 piece, you have to be some kind of model that came straight outta Vogue. The comparison traps really get the best of ya when you are not in a place of body-acceptance.
I’ll be here to tell ya…Quit doing that!
You DON’T need to make summer a bummer by living it in doubt of YOUR body.
You don’t need to stop eating, cut out food groups, counting calories, squat for a butt like J Lo, etc.
Our bodies are ALL different, and that’s the beauty of it!
We are all vivacious in our own ways. Those arms your hiding looks great in that tank top. So start wearing them.
Those legs are gorgeous in that dress! Show them off.
Your summertime CAN and WILL be successful WHEN and IF you decide to start the path towards body acceptance.
What is acceptance?
Acceptance means you can look in the mirror and maybe not love everything you see but be able to realize that it’s OK.
You unconditionally accept that this is YOUR body and it’s beautiful.
Before I began body acceptance, I always feared my stomach was a problem. I thought my Jello Jigglers went straight to my midsection. I hated myself in a bathing suit. I wanted to cover up with a towel, shorts, t-shirts.
My mom still has a pic of mid in middle school at Myrtle Beach. I was too afraid to wear my bathing suits, so I layed out in these green stripped “swishy” shorts to hide my bump.
I was insecure and didn’t feel good enough.
Nevertheless, it was my own interpretation that held me back. Until I realized that my stomach was NOT the problem. It was the way I was seeing myself was the problem.
Promise me that you are going to start this summer, by making it not a bummer. You deserve to enjoy the poolside, the boat, the bathing suit.
I get on a tangent because I want you to succeed!
