Fitnessbloggaaja oli riippuvainen kuntoilusta – paljasti syyksi Instagramin

Fitnessbloggaaja ja kunto-ohjaaja Erin päivittää Instagramissa Queen City Sweat -nimistä kanavaa, jossa nainen julkaisee motivoivia kuvia ja treenivideoita. Nyt nainen julkaisi myös kuvaparin, jossa Erin näyttää miltä hänen vartalonsa näytti kun treenaaminen ei ollut terveellä tasolla.

Vielä vuosi sitten Erin on ollut koukussa treenaamiseen ja omaan peilikuvaansa. Nainen ei syönyt tarpeeksi vaan mietti jatkuvasti, että miten laihaksi hän pystyisi vartalonsa saamaan. Erin kuntoili Instagram-kuvia varten ja yritti näyttää seuraajien saamisen vuoksi mahdollisimman pienikokoiselta.

Erin kertoi käyvänsä jatkuvasti kuntosalilla vaikka hänellä ei ollut yhtään energiaa. Syy tähän oli vain ja ainoastaan Instagram ja sen luomat ulkonäköpaineet. Nykyään Erin ajattelee laihduttamisen sijaan sitä miten terveeksi ja hyvinvoivaksi hän voi itsensä saada.

Erin toivoo, että hän pystyisi kulkemaan ajassa taakse päin ja kertomaan vuoden takaiselle itselleen, että hänen ei tarvitse rajoittaa syömisiään 1.200 kilokaloriin tai viettää aina kahta tuntia kuntosalilla. Erinin mukaan kuvien välillä on noin 4,5 kilogrammaa, jotka edustavat naiselle onnea, terveyttä ja tasapainoa.

I haven't posted one of these in a while and I feel that it's long overdue to share a little history with some of my new followers. The photo on the left is back in February of 2016. I was so obsessed with my weight and was running myself right into the ground. I was anemic and had absolutely no energy. I so wish I could go back in time and tell the girl on the left that the number on the scale does not define your health. Tell her that she doesn't need to limit her calories to 1200 a day, burn hundreds of calories, OR spend 2 hours at the gym. There's about a 10 pound difference between the photo on the left and the photo on the right. Those pounds for me represent happiness, health, and balance. I've finally stopped doing the things that other people tell me to do and solely focus on what makes myself and my body happy. I haven't weighed myself since the last time I went to the doctor a couple of months ago (which btw she told me I was very healthy🙌). No counting calories, no tracking macros, just simply eating intuitively and mixing up my routine with workouts that I enjoy. I hope that my story can inspire any young girl or woman who is currently going through what I went through❤️#transformationtuesday

A different kind of transformation Tuesday comin at ya. Left is February 2016, right is last week, June 2017. On the left I was ADDICTED to working out and was running myself into the ground. I was not eating close to what I should've been eating and ended up with a severe case of anemia causing a lack of energy to the point where I could barely get out of bed. Yet, I still forced myself to go to the gym although I felt like a zombie. The reason for this? Instagram. It becomes so easy to start comparing yourself to others on here, which led me to developing a mindset of – "how skinny can I get?" rather than "how healthy can I be?" A number on a scale does not and should not dictate happiness so I'm not going to get into that in this post. What I think I think is most important is how much HAPPIER I am in the photo on the right. I finally understand the term balance – my old idea of balance was cutting cals during the week, binging on the weekends, and then forcing myself to run miles on miles to make up for it. What is balance for me now? Listening to the cues my body gives me, eating intuitively (no more macros or calorie counting), nourishing my body with whole foods, taking rest days when my body needs them, and most importantly: prioritizing time with people I love. My only advice for you is don't fall into the Instagram trap. Not everything on here is picture perfect. Stop comparing yourself to others and start loving the body you have been given. After all, it is capable of great things!💪
