Am I confident + empowered?
Sure….most of the time. But in the spirit of Reebok’s #PerfectNever campaign, I decided to take a minute and chat about the pressure of creating the perfect Instagram image. Do I ask every photographer I work with to make me look skinny? HELL YA!
Sometimes all the angled poses and talented photographers are not enough and I still look larger than I wish (or expected) in an image. Do I leave the photo alone and post it? Sometimes. Do I take a moment and reshape my big booty on Facetune? Yep, sometimes I do that too.
The reality of Instagram is the that there are NOT a lot of REAL people in the app. There are countless tools to modify and edit a photo and create an image that is in fact not very REAL.
So where do I go from here?
Do I get my big booty back in the gym? It has literally been MONTHS since I hit the gym (post-mono).
Yes! I had mono at 30.
I think the gym and a healthy diet are the best routes to get me back to the REAL image of myself that I am looking for…but getting back into the gym sounds impossible!
I think that I also need to change out my fitness routine! Hey, SF ladies where are you working out?
Do I need to get my booty into Barry’s Bootcamp?
I am REALLY asking!
Now let’s take a minute and talk about what I’m wearing here.
Does a new workout outfit motivate you to go to the gym?
Does a flattering workout outfit motivate you?
I know that fitness will never make me perfect, but it will help me be the best version of myself.
And the best version of myself is REAL.
