Ab check this morning after having a big ol' plate of pasta last night 😍🍝 Balance is so important in a HEALTHY fitness journey. And I emphasize "healthy" because many are so afraid to eat anything not healthy or "clean" and while I will admit I've had similar thoughts myself, I immediately had to consciously remind myself how important it is to RELAX and just enjoy a meal without thinking how it will impact your body. - Being obsessed with being healthy and perfect 100% of the time to me is not healthy emotionally. Let's put a stop to the "All Or Nothing" mentality. Your life shouldn't revolve around the gym or eating salads. I wholeheartedly believe you should prioritize your health, so I DO eat healthy the majority of the time but I think it's just as important to relax and have a "cheat" or "treat" meal once a week. - Understanding that 'one meal won't make you gain weight just like one meal won't make you lose weight' will help you practice healthier habits emotionally, mentally and physically. So next time you're out with friends or family, enjoy it! You deserve it 😘 you may be bloated after (I def was last night) but in the morning you'll be back to normal, as I was this morning. Actually, my abs popped even more 😂🤔 so just remember...balance. #fbggirls www.annavictoria.com/guides
Fitness model Anna Victoria wanted her 1.2 million Instagram followers to understand that while she is amazingly toned, no one has a body without imperfections.
Me 1% of the time vs. 99% of the time. And I love both photos equally. Good or bad angles don't change your worth ❤️ I recently came across an article talking about how one woman stated she refuses to accept her flaws, because she doesn't see them as flaws at all. I LOVED that because it sends such a powerful message that our belly rolls, cellulite, stretch marks are nothing to apologize for, to be ashamed of, or to be obsessed with getting rid of! As I'm getting older, I have cellulite and stretch marks that aren't going away, and I welcome them. They represent a life fully lived (for 28 years so far :)) and a healthy life and body at that. How can I be mad at my body for perfectly normal "flaws"? This body is strong, can run miles, can lift and squat and push and pull weight around, and it's happy not just because of how it looks, but because of how it feels. So when you approach your journey, I want you to remember these things: I will not punish my body I will fuel it I will challenge it AND I will love it 💗💗💗 If you're following my page, you're a part of helping me spread this message and creating this movement - thank you. #fbggirls www.annavictoria.com/guides
