Anna Victoria Shares Her 5-Year Transformation Picture On Instagram
My change was more about how I felt within, about my wellbeing, and that is not something I can demonstrate you in a photo.
Few out of every odd change is about looks,
Anna Victoria Shares Hr 5Year Transformation Picture On Instagram
and Anna Victoria, mentor and originator of Fit Body Guides, flawlessly entireties up why.
In a current Instagram post, the fitfluencer shared a photo of herself 5 years prior alongside one of her today, indicating how far she’s come throughout the years. While her body has clearly changed, Anna says that the greatest changes she’s accomplished are those you can’t see.
“My ‘change,'” she subtitled her post. “Now and again I don’t care for calling it that since I was never troubled with the way I hoped in the first place. My change was more about how I felt within, about my wellbeing, and that is not something I can indicate you in a photo.
My “transformation” 💗 Sometimes I don’t like calling it that because I was never unhappy with the way I looked to begin with. • My transformation was more about how I felt on the inside, about my health, and that’s not something I can show you in a picture. Nevertheless, instagram is a visual platform and we are visual creatures so here we are. While I’m happy with the physical changes I’ve worked so hard for, they don’t compare to the non-physical changes that aren’t visible to the naked eye. Those non-physical changes are what keep me going. There’s always room for physical improvement and there’s always someone who looks better than you, and those two facts can be freaking exhausting if it’s all you’re concerned with. It can put you in a constant state of wanting to restrict food more, work out more, and if you’re not careful, lead to an unhealthy obsession and relationship with workouts and with food. That’s not what I want for me or for any one of you. • The before photo was in November 2012, so nearly 5 years ago. Could someone see progress in less time? Of course, and I did see significant progress not long after this ‘before’ photo. My transformation didn’t take 5 years, it took about 9 months. I do set goals and push myself, but I’ve always been overly conscious of maintaining balance and never letting fitness take over my life. These last 5 years I’ve been pushing myself but I’ve also been living my life, enjoying vacations and cheat meals and completely indulging and having no regrets. I don’t work out to punish myself for eating ice cream and I don’t restrict myself if I feel I want to relax a bit. I DO however keep in mind how food affects me mentally and emotionally and that’s what keeps me eating as healthy as I do. • Do I have people telling me I should be more lean? Yes. That I could gain more muscle? Yes. But I’m not concerned with other people’s ideas of what I should or shouldn’t do with my body. I’m doing what I want which is to kick ass in the gym, be empowered by my workouts and feeling strong, but still enjoy life and to value balance above rock hard abs or a lower body fat percentage. #fbggirls www.annavictoria.com/guides
While I’m content with the physical changes I’ve worked so hard for,
they don’t measure up to the non-physical changes that aren’t obvious to the exposed eye,
Those non-physical changes are what prop me up.
