Going through old pics of this True & Co. Lingerie shoot and realizing so much of how we “think” we look is really just a reflection of how we feel. I did this photo shoot as a Dare to Bare ambassador and wanted to showcase positive body image even without the six-pack dream body I’ve always wanted. Truth is, I’m uncomfortable in a sports-bra, in a bikini, in lingerie, I always “think” I can look better; skinnier, stronger, more toned.. The list goes on.

The facts are: I teach 14 classes a week, I ride 9-12 of them, I cross-train, I do yoga, I lift weights, I do ENOUGH.

I’m a conscious eater, I eat organic 90% of the time, I don’t have dairy unless it’s a dessert item of course ;), I choose gluten free, I drink a TON of water, I do it all. It should be enough.

And it is enough. My body is strong, my organs are healthy, my body isn’t depended on ANY medications, I have full mobility and am in totality- HEALTHY!

On the day of the shoot, I felt bloated, I felt insecure, I was even feeling sick; I decided not to share these pics because when I looked at them I saw how I felt, not what was very clearly in front of me.

Today when I look at them, even though I am 5lbs lighter and more toned now, I am happy with what I see. Once removed from the situation and feelings back then, in hindsight I can see 20/20. A healthy, happy, strong, capable, sexy woman. Who does enough and IS enough.

So take pics NOW, feel good in your skin NOW, and enjoy your health NOW, because it won’t be this good forever.
