This is me at 5pm today, with 1 cappuccino, 1 energy drink, a tuna salad, a mini white chocolage ice cream, 2 Lindt balls, 1 instant coffee, 1 @optimumnutriton
Pure Pro 50 and many litres of water in my tummy.
Some days, my body will look totally different at this exact time. Sometimes because of the types of foods I’ve consumed that day, the amount of food I’ve consumed over the last few days, how close I am to getting my period (or if I have it), how much or little sleep I’ve had, my stress levels or even if I’ve just drunk a lot of liquid during the day.
Particularly as a woman, the way my body looks can change quite a bit in a short space of time. Most of the time, that doesn’t mean that I’ve put on kilos of fat or muscle over the course of a few days; it’s more than likely one of the many reasons listed above.
That’s why most selfies on this platform are taken first thing in the morning, or mid-workout with a sickening pump.
So this is me today, at 5pm, having already completed training and with food in my tummy.
N.B. I am well aware that, particularly within the general population, I am usually considered a fairly lean person. I understand this and I understand that while my intention here is to promote body awareness and positivity, for some, this may be another “you don’t get it, you’re lean” post. I totally understand this. I don’t intend to do that, however this is the body I have, so it’s the body I’m going to post. I don’t ever want to come across as the “I’m lean, but I can relate” person”, because in some ways, I can’t. #honest
