FoodieGirlFitness And The Biggest Lie Society Ever Told

I felt happier 25 pounds heavier, than where I was four years ago when I started with these at home workouts. And it’s because no matter what happens to me physically, I’ve worked harder on transforming my mind than anything else.

Loving yourself is not an easy task- especially when we live in a world that is constantly telling us we’re not good enough. But, it’s the MOST IMPORTANT job we’ll ever have.

If you’re at war with your body, let me help. I have a plan that WILL get the unwanted weight off {while having fun and still enjoying life}, but more importantly, my plan will teach you how to fall in love with yourself- no matter what shape your body is in!

It is possible to be a work in progress and love yourself all at the same time.

If I’m going to show you the posed, put together, professional sides of me, I’m gonna make damn sure you see the not so flattering sides too. Because, contrary to what society has taught us to think, our worth isn’t measured by how many belly rolls we have, or how many dimples on our booty, or how much jiggle hangs out on our arms.

Loving ourselves exactly as we are is hard. Because we’ve been told for years that we’re not good enough until we {insert any of the thousands of ideas of perfection that has been fed to us over the years}. But I call BS. I say that the real magic happens when we embrace who we are, at every angle and size.

This doesn’t mean I don’t also struggle with embracing this body I was given, but it does mean that I understand working on loving me is the most important job I will ever have.

Our bodies aren’t broken. The message society is trying to tell us {by airbrushing everything, erasing dimples and rolls and fluff} is.

So even though its really hard, lets remember we are worthy and beautiful and special and ALIVE. Go on and love yourself today, because THAT shit is whats inspiring.

 

Don’t wait for “someday” to be happy. Start right now. If you’re struggling where you’re at right now because you just can’t seem to find the motivation to get fit and healthy, at least recognize that it doesn’t make you a shitty person… It makes you human. Get back up, dust yourself off, adjust your crown, and keep kicking ass like the queen you are.

I hope I can continue to inspire you to love yourself, just as you are. Because your life is not yours if you spend it caring what other people think.

Imagine how different this world would be if we all focused on the things we LOVE about ourselves, rather than the things we hate. Let’s start a revolution

Here Is A Method That Is Helping low Self Esteem

Society has engraved a particular “supermodel” stereotype of what beauty ideals are into our minds. They feed us with pictures and opinions of what beautiful should look like. Well, they are wrong because the people who they tell us are the beauty ideals also struggle with feelings of imperfection sometimes. Many lives have been ruined in trying to get to an ideal weight, skin color, body type and size.

A post shared by Bankus (@adebankefalade) on

Years ago, I would stand in front of the mirror and look at my body and I would hate what I saw. I felt I was too skinny, too short, didn’t have enough curves like my fellow African women, I was too dark, my behind was too small, I wasn’t pretty enough and a lot of other things. Growing up in a stereotyped African society where “bigger is better”, I felt very out of place and felt like I didn’t fit in. I had low self-esteem and it affected my social life and my mentality.

Then Instagram came. I opened a page and began to follow fitness pages. I would see pictures posted of all kinds of women of every race, ethnicity, body type, height and all ages. I saw women who looked exactly like me. What shocked me was when I would go to the comments section and there would be all sorts of comments about how she’s perfect.

PERFECT! I couldn’t believe it. Someone somewhere thought a woman who looked like me is perfect.

Then it hit me: I AM PERFECT

I’m not where I want to be but I’m definitely not where I used to be. I realized that the more I declared good things about myself, the more they happened to me. The Law of Attraction works!! It’s what you feed your mind that it produces. If you feed it depressing and “can’t do” thoughts, you’ll be depressed and can’t do anything. If you feed it positive and exciting thoughts, your life will attract positive and exciting things. Speak to yourself every day. Trust me, you listen and so does the universe.

Ladies, please know that whatever you look like, you are beautiful and there’s someone who thinks you’re perfect. That person is me. YOU ARE PERFECT.
