Let’s admit this first: the goal has always been to make our “getting in shape” results match the results of those we see succeeding around us, whether it’s on a Fitspiration blog, on an athletic friend’s Instagram page, or just a girlfriend that really stuck to her New Year’s resolutions.
The constant comparison and discrete jealousy are just fuel for more frustration, when you know that deep down it’s not that you don’t find them inspiring, but that you want to be on the bright side of the “fitness struggle”.
That’s why the first step of your new “Beach Body” plan will be to give your expectations an individualist perspective. You won’t allow the success of others to dull the brightness of your success.
Your new goal will be to become a more fit, and in better shape, version of yourself! The freedom to only compare yourself to the person you were at the beginning of the process will set your mind & body free of unrealistic expectations.
