I don’t know about you, but I’ve been seeing gyms pop up on my ads constantly. And the phrases “It’s time to start building that summer body” and “get your summer body ready”. Can I be honest? I’m tired of seeing it. I hate seeing these ads and influencers telling me now is the time to create my summer body. Because the body I have now? That’s my summer body.
I enjoy working out and eating healthy because it’s good for me, and it makes me feel good. However, I don’t believe in the toxic mindset of overtraining or under eating to reach a certain body “standard”. That is not a positive mindset to keep and can become dangerous. The toxic lifestyle is what inspired the whole idea around a summer body.
A summer body is your own body. Every body is unique and beautiful in their own ways. Do not let anyone ever tell you anything else! Now put on your most skimpy or conservative bathing suit and have the time of your life at the beach! Your body is not for anyone to shame, including yourself. So remember to wear whatever you want and get some sun!
