How I’ve Learned To Accept My Body

I’ll tell you a short synopses of my workout routine throughout my life. I danced from a child until high school graduation. When I stopped dancing after high school I was shocked to see my muscle (specifically in my legs) disappear. The reality is that I wasn’t working out at all so naturally my body would change. However, because I’d been used to seeing my body a certain way for YEARS it felt different seeing it change.
When I was in my late 20’s I came to accept my body for what it is. I’ve learned that if I maintain a consistent workout schedule, my body will be toned and for the times I don’t it will change again.
I’ve come to recognize that the relationship I have with food determines how my body will function. I’ve realized my body will change for the rest of my life and that’s okay. I’m learning what I can control with my body is to ask myself, what foods I’m addicted to and WHY I want to eat something-is it because I’m actually hungry or because the food is in front of me or in the building or am I just craving it?
My point in telling you all this, is to not be so hard on yourself when it comes to your body because you only have one.

My mission is to provide realistic lifestyle tips to everyone. Everything from tips on blogging advice, meal prepping, but most importantly, motivation. Each Monday I share a Motivational Monday post that is a lesson I’ve learned throughout the week, that I believe should be shared with you all, my community. My hope is that these lessons will manifest into a positive mindset. I want people to recognize that you can have a happy, healthy and positive mindset and lifestyle. If you’re wondering where this motivational mindset came from, it has grown out of years of negative mindset. I was believing lies people told me about myself (one of them being I have no confidence). Until one day when I decided I needed to change myself and be a better version of me. I then began working out regularly, managing my money, eating foods my body craves, listening to what my body needed every single day-rest, work or a dance party while getting ready for the day, writing daily and surrounding my life with people who motivate me (especially through online communities!). I hope you find this community I’ve curated a place for you to learn more about yourselves. It will be motivational and supportive as we all walk our own journey of life together by providing a realistic lifestyle. Remember: You are NOT the lies people tell you. YOU are the person you BECOME. Follow all my realistic lifestyle tips on social media-Facebook and Instagram: @stylestomakeyousmile <3 Always, Amy Beth
