Motivated Mondays - Do something that scares you!

Last Monday, I had the chance to do something that I have wanted to do for a long time but was totally scared of - a photo shoot! Honestly, I don't like to be the center of attention. And despite having stood on stage in a very tiny bikini this year, I was still nervous about the idea of being the focus of attention and worried what I would look like in the photos. I was literally shaking as I walked in!

But after 3 hours of strutting around in next to nothing (did I mention this was a lingerie shoot!), I felt confident and strong. And when I saw the photos (which I will post in the next little while on Instagram @fatcityfit), I realized that seeing yourself through someone else's eyes can really open your eyes to how you really look! We are all so quick to be critical of ourselves and how we look and we focus on our flaws instead of on our assets.

Whenever I push myself outside my comfort zone, I am left feeling so much stronger and more powerful. I never regret it. And whenever I take the time to look at my best features, instead of focusing on what I feel are my weak points, I feel more beautiful and confident. So step outside your comfort zone, challenge yourself and when you look in the mirror, focus on at least twice as many positives as you do perceived negatives because you are beautiful, you are strong and you deserve to be confident!

Get uncomfortable!
