Bikini body 👙🌿 I'm sure we've all had that feeling where you're feeling cute at the beach but then you sit down and all of a sudden feel insecure and don't know how to sit without your tummy feeling oddly too exposed. The other day I went to the beach and would have slight moments where I felt like people were looking at my tummy and these feelings of insecurity where I wanted to hide my tummy because "it didn't look good" sitting down. But I realised that I was being silly and ruining my time at the beach and not enjoying it fully just because of this small silly thing. You really shouldn't feel that way! Everyone looks like this when they sit down! Nobody is judging you and even if someone was then that's a reflection of their inner insecurities, not yours. You are not fat. We all have fat, especially on our tummies and it's completely normal. And that fat does not make you worth any less as a person! Nobody has abs or a flat tummy 24/7 when they sit down. Don't let this idea ruin your time because it's completely normal! If you want to wear a bikini, then wear it cause life's too short not to wear what you want!! You look amazing so wear it with confidence and you'll radiate beauty! 🌴☀️ ------------------------------------------ . . . #bikinibody #bodypositive #lawofattraction #beachtime #insecurities #bodyposi #fitnessmotivation #positiveenergy #manifest #bodyfat #allbodiesaregoodbodies #bodyacceptance #selflove #bopowarrior #allbodiesarebeautiful #fitnessjourney #weightlossjourney #bopo #vegansofig #veganfitness #bbg #positivethinking #positivelife #positivemind #loveyourself #youareenough #youmatter
Sara makes a point to share the typical "insta model" pics along with the real life candid ones to try and make a point to show all women what we see isn't reality. And it's really hitting home.
Instagram vs real life 💁🏼🌿 If I saw the photo on the left a year ago I would've instantly thought so negatively about my body, that all my hard work from working out was non existent, that if someone looked at me they would've never thought I've been working out for 2 years and think I wasn't trying hard enough. But the thing is is that all bodies look different. Nobody's booty looks round and peachy from all angles. Nobody's body looks the same from all angles. Don't eat less or miss out on your favorite meals/drinks or over exercise to "look good for a holiday" or to "look good in bikini photos" because there will always be angles that are "unflattering" that might make you feel bad when you see them. Instead workout and eat healthy because it makes you feel good, not as a punishment. Start loving and accepting your body at all angles with all your "flaws", instead of trying to fit into societies image of 'beauty' because that image isn't inclusive of all individuals, which is so messed up. Don't hate yourself just because of bad photos, they do not define you as a person. You look the best when you're living life to the fullest and happiest. There's no point in missing out on things and stressing yourself out so much. Life isn't meant to be a competition on who can look the best and we should normalize not having to "look perfect" all the time because it's a ridiculous concept. You are perfect the way you are 🌴☀️ ------------------------------------------ . . . #instagramvsreallife #beforeandafter #lawofattraction #bodypositive #bekindtoyourself #lifeisgreat #dowhatyoulove #veganbooty #youareenough #progressnotperfection #bodyimage #vegansofig #girlswhoworkout #selflove #youarebeautiful #veganfitness #loa #fitnessjourney #bopo #bodyacceptance #bodyconfidence #effyourbeautystandards #bepresent #justbe #moderation #balanceddiet #staypositive #thinkpositive

Period bloating 💁🏼🌿 If you feel like you're gonna get offended or grossed out by this post then please stop reading now 😊 On the left is me a month ago not on my period (my periods are irregular) and on the right is me on my period! I'm sucking in my belly as much as I can in both photos, to show that the period bloat doesn't go away, even when you suck in and I found this is the most accurate way to compare the bloat 😬 For all my people with periods out there, you need to know It's completely normal to bloat before and on your period! You can gain anywhere from 0.2-4.5kg from water retention while on your period so don't even worry about your weight!!! Also other factors like hormones affect weight, so just know that you'll be okay, you're not fat or ugly, you haven't gained fat, it's just your period! I wanted to let you guys know that even though I preach body positivity and loving yourself, I still get days before/on my period, where I think I've gained so much fat, think I'm ugly and feel guilty for eating unhealthy snacks. But please remember that that's just your hormones and body preparing for your period that's making you feel like that. You are still beautiful and amazing!! That weight gain is just water retention or bloating, it'll be gone in a few days and don't feel bad for eating whatever you're craving, cause you're shedding your old uterus lining out your vagina, it's a lot to go through, so you eat those snacks!!!!!! And if anyone tells you, you look gross or are gross for having your period, then just walk away, you don't need that kind of negativity in your life 🙌🏼 don't even get me started on period cramps, if anyone tells you you're weak for complaining about cramps, smear your blood on them and tell them they're weak for freaking out about a little blood and walk away (jk please don't do that). Just know that period cramps vary from person to person, from no/few cramps to omfg I'm going to die and throw up everywhere from this pain, so don't judge or compare pain. Periods are a tough thing to go through and vary from person to person. Just know that it's perfectly normal and you are a strong and beautiful person!! 🌴☀️
