Fitness Star Anna Victoria Shares True SELFIE ‘How I Am 99% of the Time’
Anna Victoria, the insanely popular Instagram star and fitness blogger behind Fit Body Guides, has shared two side-by-side photos to remind us that not all instagram posts are perfect.
Me 1% of the time vs. 99% of the time. And I love both photos equally. Good or bad angles don’t change your worth ❤️ I recently came across an article talking about how one woman stated she refuses to accept her flaws, because she doesn’t see them as flaws at all. I LOVED that because it sends such a powerful message that our belly rolls, cellulite, stretch marks are nothing to apologize for, to be ashamed of, or to be obsessed with getting rid of! As I’m getting older, I have cellulite and stretch marks that aren’t going away, and I welcome them. They represent a life fully lived (for 28 years so far :)) and a healthy life and body at that. How can I be mad at my body for perfectly normal “flaws”? This body is strong, can run miles, can lift and squat and push and pull weight around, and it’s happy not just because of how it looks, but because of how it feels. So when you approach your journey, I want you to remember these things: I will not punish my body I will fuel it I will challenge it AND I will love it ??? If you’re following my page, you’re a part of helping me spread this message and creating this movement – thank you. #fbggirls www.annavictoria.com/guides
The body-positive post quickly went viral in less than 24 hours. Her goal: to illustrate that much of what we see from the fitness community on social media is what people look like just a small fraction of the time, when they’re posing in the best possible lighting.
“I will not punish my body. I will fuel it. I will challenge it. AND I will love it.”
