Heilbrigðari án skorinna magavöðva
Þjálfarinn Marie Wold í Bandaríkjunum er dugleg að segja frá því á Instagram að hún var ekki hraustari þegar hún var með skorna magavöðva. Fólk talar gjarnan um að fá skorna magavöðva eða „six-pack“ en Wold hvetur fólk ekki til að eltast við slík markmið.
Hún segist hafa eytt fimm til sex árum í að reyna að líta út fyrir að vera með „fullkominn“ líkama í von um að sjálfstraust myndi fylgja með í kaupbæti. Wold segir hins vegar sjálfstraustið ekki koma með megrun og með því að reyna að laga sig heldur með sjálfsást.
Þegar Wold hugsar til baka viðurkennir hún að fyrir nokkrum árum hefði hún sjálf verið vonsvikin að komast að því að hún hefði aldrei náð markmiði sínu að verða 55 kíló. Einnig hefðu það verið henni vonbrigði árið 2014 að komast að því að hún yrði ekki sjálfkrafa svöl með skorna magavöðva heldur aðallega svöng.
Hún er ekki á móti því að fólk hreyfi sig og borði hollt en segir að hugurinn verði að vera á réttum stað og hamingjan byrjar að innan.

2014 Marie would be so disappointed to find out that... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ❌She never reaches her 'ultimate goal weight' of 120 pounds, even at her leanest ❌Finally getting those 6-pack abs doesn't end up being that cool, mostly just really hungry ❌She would become 'Miss Bikini Minnesota', and it still wouldn't be enough ❌She missed out on a lot of memories and experiences because they "didn't fit her macros" or interrupted her workout routine ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Because true confidence and happiness doesn't come from what you look like. It comes from moving like you love yourself, eating like you love yourself, and thinking like you love yourself. Sounds simple, but it's definitely not easy 💔 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2019 Marie sees every single step of the journey as a learning experience, but also wishes that it didn't have to take her so much time and pain to get here ⏱⏳⏰ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ [ok, I'm done speaking in the third person 😂] ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My major struggles with self-worth, confidence, body image, food, exercise, and allllll of the things are the daily driving force behind what I do today. I've "turned my pain into my purpose", as they say 🤘🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And now it's my mission to show women around the world how to move, nourish, and shine with confidence and self-love. I want YOU to experience the freedom, happiness, and JOY that comes from taking great care of yourself because you LOVE yourself, not because they are trying to "fix" yourself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ No matter how lost, discouraged, or unworthy you feel right now, I promise that confidence IS possible! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I know it feels impossible right now, but I can show you exactly how to make it happen and support you every single step of the way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My group mentorship program, The Move Nourish Shine Collective, does exactly that and we're opening our doors again in just a couple more weeks. Application spots are always very limited, so if you want first dibs, click the link in my bio and join the waitlist! ✨MOVENOURISHSHINE.COM✨

ABS ≠ CONFIDENCE. WEIGHT LOSS ≠ SATISFACTION. TROPHIES ≠ HAPPINESS. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I had to learn that the hard way, y'all. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I spent 5-6 years of my life chasing different versions of the "perfect" physique in hopes that achieving it would finally give me the confidence + self-acceptance that I was craving. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Turns out it doesn't work that way 😐 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Confidence starts from the INSIDE out. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sure, eating healthy + working out CAN help, but only if your intentions are in the right place. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's not about dieting / exercising to "fix" yourself, it's about nourishing / moving your body to LOVE yourself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Once you make decisions through a lens of love, you'll finally be able to cultivate confidence that DOESN'T depend on what your body looks like, and that is TRUE confidence that no one can take away from you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I know it's scary to let go of the restriction and struggle that has become your comfort zone, but I'm proof that freedom is so worth it ❤️ . . . . . #selfconfidenceissexy #selfloveclub #celebratingmybody #strongnotskinny #strongher #beavisionary #strengthfeed #selfconfidenceiskey #confidencecrusader #mindsetshift #selflovejourney #thickthighs #effyourbeautystandards #workoutroutine #Onlinecoach #communityovercompetition #womenempoweringwomen #girlgang #grindandbegrateful #goaldigger #neversettle #foodcoach #wellnesswarrior #holistichealthcoach #selflove #selfcare #grindgang #instafit #girlswholift #weightlosscoach
