ConfidenceKini Challenge

Thursday, April 7, 2016

Hey y'all! Happy Thursday! I hope you are having a wonderful day and week! The weekend is just a stone's throw away, so can I get a big yay for that?! I know I'm super excited about this weekend for many reasons! But more on that next week, today I'm super excited to share something that is relatively new in my life but has really got me passionate about it!

For the past four or so years I've struggled with getting and staying healthy. And when I say I struggled, I mean it was a struggle. I'll be the first to admit that trying to lose weight and becoming healthy is hard. One of my biggest issues is staying motivated when it seems quite literally impossible to lift another weight or the scale doesn't want to budge. And in those moments, I felt like my personal confidence was the lowest it has ever been. So I began to wonder how everybody else did it?! What gave them the confidence to continue through the struggle and come out the other end with a success story?! After a few Pinterest searches for some new at home workout ideas, I stumbled on an amazing community that gave me the answers I had been missing.

Throwback to Summer 2013 when I was doing Insanity for fitness
I initially ran across an old workout from Lauren Gleisberg on Pinterest that looked easy enough to follow and I could do at home. But when I went to her website to investigate further, I began to believe this is what I was missing. (The pink header really drew me in -- I can't lie, I love anything that's bright pink!) The more I read her blog and workouts and saw the community she has created, the more I knew I was going to be hooked! So I bit the bullet and purchased her meal plan and signed up for the ConfidenceKini Challenge.

One of the main things that drew me into LG's fitness world is her personal confidence and how she shares it with all the girls that stumble across her website. She has created a whole community of #LGSisters that pretty much embody everything that confidence means to me. This is a community that is super supportive of each other! I couldn't believe how much love I felt when I began posting with the #LGAccountability hashtag on Instagram. Every member is proud of their success and not afraid to congratulate other when they've achieved goals as well!

If you find yourself in a similar situation where making progress towards your goals seems impossible, don't be afraid to seek out the encouragement of others. Having that community environment is one of the best places to share your struggles, express your desires and be proud of your successes! Confidence doesn't come overnight but with a little work and a supportive community like the LG community, you can make the changes you want to see!

I'm sure that the LG community isn't the only supportive [fitness] community around! What groups do y'all belong to that boost your confidence? (It doesn't have to only be about fitness either!)
