You guys, I’m having a moment, and it’s not a particularly good one.
I’m going to Erie this weekend with some of my best friends from college, which involves a beach day, and that requires...a bathing suit.
I can honestly tell you that I’ve never felt confident in a swim suit, not even when I was at my fittest in high school. I’m more self-conscious of my legs than about anything else on my body, even though they’re dang strong! I wish that I I had been able to lay out and get a tan this week, but it’s been rainy, and I’m still beyond pale. I told myself that I would wear the suit on the left if I was feeling confident, the suit in the middle if I was feeling eh, and the suit on the right as a last resort. Right now, in this moment, I don’t feel good in any of these suits.
I wanted to share this not to have a pity party for myself, but to show you that just because someone has a “fitness Instagram” and is actively working out, eating well, and practicing self-love doesn’t mean they have it all together all the time. For me, the self-love is the hardest part of that triangle. May we all learn to talk to ourselves a little kinder and love ourselves a bit more
