Someone asked me the other day what my ideal weight is. Wow, I hadn't thought about that in SUCH a long time! I remember obsessing over it at the beginning like "Hit that number or die Vee!" 😂 But honestly, I moved away from that mentality a while ago. My main concern has been staying on track, not going backwards and not getting injured. I worry about my nutrition and nourishing my body properly. I worry about not losing my hair to crash dieting (been there). I worry about re-shaping my body naturally via weightlifting, about improving my performance via Crossfit, and about upping my speed, agility and endurance via boxing. I worry about running my business properly and being my best self for my clients. And I worry about keeping a peaceful, positive, non-toxic environment around me. All while trying to still live and and enjoy life. I guess I just put my ideal "number" on the back burner. Stressing over the scale isn't my jam anymore. I definitely don't have my ideal body, I have that stubborn love handle and thighs as big as my dreams. Most days I feel chubby as hell. Like, TMI... but I still reach for size 14s when I go shopping. I have to make my way down the sizes until something fits 😂. Its like my brain hasn't caught up with my body. But I'm working on it. And THAT'S my priority. Teaching my brain that this is the new normal and that we are NOT going back. If that means stalling at my current weight for a while, then I'm cool with that.
So I guess if I had to put it in words, my ultimate goal is to step on the scale and it read: "Sexy AF" lol. Not sure what that means in numbers, but let's be real, it's gonna be a minute before that happens. 😂😒 But I want to invite you to let go of YOUR "ideal number" and work towards your "ideal feeling". It has worked wonders for me and my mental health and it has made the process far more enjoyable. The scale is an asshole. Yet another fitness frenemy. So take what she says with a grain of salt and peace her out. . 📷: @segdesign 💄: @fusehair
