Same Girl/Different Angle Photo Reminds You That ‘Perfect’ Photos Are Bulls**T.

Men and women look at images of fitness experts, trainers, and athletes as a source of inspiration. When you want to skip a workout, eat that extra Halloween candy, or have a glass of wine instead of water, you just remind yourself "if so and so can do it, I can as well."

Yet, for many getting the perfectly defined arms, flat stomach, and long muscular legs seems a hard to reach goal. If you look at photos of 31-year-old Ashlie Molstad aka Foodie Girl Fitness, she exemplifies the definition of a beautiful and strong body.

The fitness guru, however, wants to be truthful about what a perfectly thought-out and planned photo looks like versus one where every dimple, cellulite, and extra skin shows up. Unaltered and unfiltered.

According to Ashlie Molstad, the perfect body is a matter of perspective.

Same girl. Different angles.

If I'm going to show you the posed, put together, professional sides of me, I'm gonna make damn sure you see the not so flattering sides too. Because, contrary to what society has taught us to think, our worth isn't measured by how many belly rolls we have, or how many dimples on our booty, or how much jiggle hangs out on our arms.

Loving ourselves exactly as we are is hard. Because we've been told for years that we're not good enough until we {insert any of the thousands of ideas of perfection that has been fed to us over the years}. But I call BS. I say that the real magic happens when we embrace who we are, at every angle and size.

This doesn't mean I don't also struggle with embracing this body I was given, but it does mean that I understand working on loving me is the most important job I will ever have.

Our bodies aren't broken. The message society is trying to tell us {by airbrushing everything, erasing dimples and rolls and fluff} is.

So even though its really hard, lets remember we are worthy and beautiful and special and ALIVE. Go on and love yourself today, because THAT shit is whats inspiring.
