I briefly touched on this topic yesterday but I feel it deserves a little more detail. The Left pic was taken 2-3 weeks out from the 2019 crossfit games and right pic is from just the other day. I posted one of these last year and I wanted to post another one because I like to continue to be as transparent as possible with you guys. I know some of you will ask what’s your weight difference here? And I’m going to answer that by saying it doesn’t matter. I’m posting this to show THAT I AM HUMAN. I am posting this to share with you that the “Perfect Crossfit Games body” is not sustainable and should NOT be your “goals.” Someone like me, who’s life literally revolves around exercise, should not be your goal. I am here to keep it real, to inspire, and to motivate you all to focus on being the best YOU. Life’s way too short to be constantly chasing “the perfect body.” And don’t get me wrong, having goals is GREAT but I encourage you all to focus on finding the balance between healthy and happy. And I encourage you all to remember to love yourself despite your insecurities and to please give yourself a little forgiveness when you aren’t perfect because trust me NO ONE is. #keepingitreal #iamhuman #letsbereal #crossfit #crossfitgames #allhart #pleasenosteriodcommentsiwillreportyou
