It is my theme for this year. I usually have a word, I very rarely ever make resolutions but over and over I find myself saying, I do what I want.
It started as my response to the whole curated Instagram feed, using the same filter, getting professional pictures taken and the allgorythm that every Influenster talks about. It drives me nuts, so I just started posting whatever I want, whenever I want. There are definitely some sponsored posts, because money is money but for the most part I feel like people are here because they like to see glimpses of my life and that’s where they connect with me.
Cut to the last couple of weeks and me sharing more of my yoga. I stopped for a while because sometimes the creepers can get obnoxious and it’s exhausting blocking people and getting unsolicited penis pictures. 🙄
However, I posted last week and almost all of my messages were from women. All kinds of women across the country, women with bodies like mine and some not, but every message was encouraging. It was that they were inspired or happy to what could be accomplished with some dedicated practice and to see someone who looks like me doing yoga. That’s the moment I decided to do what I want. I decided that the few creepers I have to block is nothing compared to the women I’m inspiring and encouraging.
I practice in shorts or underwear because I’m at home and it’s comfortable. If you take my Sunday class, I’ll have on pants, but again, I do what I want- I’m at home.
Please don’t let the little squares on Instagram fool you, I am not a small girl. If you know me in real life, you know the curves go on for days. The fact that I can get all that ass off the ground and over my head is not something I take lightly. Doing yoga has been this wonderful, freeing, learning what my body can do type thing for me and I am enjoying sharing my journey with you. Hopefully showing you that size, shape, age doesn’t matter, everyone can do it - if they want to.
You will see me, in my short-shorts practicing & pushing the limits of my body. I post for accountability and documentation of progress and because I do what I want. 😉
