As you might have seen on Instagram and through my blog I’ve been trying to champion the importance of positive body image and confidence amongst women. I’ve spent too long hating my body and I’ve decided that the time has come to stop this.
To get my message out there I’ve posted about the truth behind some of the before/after selfies, I’ve posed nude in Cosmopolitan magazine and I’ve posted some very honest sweaty workout selfies. Now it’s time for you all to get involved too.
The #weloveourbodies challenge is going to be starting on Wednesday 19th August and it’s very simple. All you need to do is post a photo or update on Instagram or Twitter and use the hashtag #weloveourbodies every day for the next two weeks.
We all have moments where we look in the mirror and hate what we see but this is about looking in the mirror and finding something that you love. My hope is that by finding something about your body that you love everyday for two weeks it will start a habit of feeling positive towards yourself and your body.
Here is my first post that will be going up on Wednesday, expect to see more from then:
Day 1: I love my body because it carried me through my first ever Olympic distance triathlon, something that I had never thought possible. I’ve always made excuses like ‘I don’t have the body of an endurance athlete’ until I realised that there is no perfect ‘endurance body’ and I was just scared about challenging myself like that. #weloveourbodies
Don’t forget to use the hashtag and tag me in your post with @fitology_uk on Twitter or Instagram!
