“Be gentle with yourself. You’re doing the best you can.”
This year’s #CHAARGSBFP is all about loving every inch of your amazing self! Self-love can be such an important part of the fitness journey + we are here to support every girl out there. For some, self-love can be a long, difficult process to achieve. There are so many different ways to practice self-care + having a CHAARG Instagram account is a great place to practice self-love! With an amazing support group + the freeing feeling of being able to post whatever, whenever you want, your account can remind you of your self worth + inspire you to continue working towards self-love —
CELEBRATE YOUR SUCCESSES
Finally ran that mile you’ve been aiming for since the start of your journey? Finished the half-marathon you feared you’d never be ready for? Celebrate + share your success with a sweaty, smiling selfie on your #inCHAARG account! We love hearing about + seeing girls accomplish their goals as much as you’ll love seeing it. The pride + amazement that will fill you when you look back at the moment where you could say you did it will be a perfect reminder of all you’re capable of! You’ll also have the perfect place to look back on off days + remind yourself of your journey. You accomplished that goal, no matter how big or small it may have been — you’ve got this!
Being #inCHAARG is all about being happy + healthy! What better way to remind yourself to do what makes you happy than by sharing those things with others? Post about the new book you just read that reminded you to fall in love with life or that group picture you took with friends last time you all had the day to spend time together. Your Instagram account is all about you + what makes you happy on your journey to self-love, so post what brings a huge, happy smile on your face!
PROGRESS, PROGRESS, PROGRESS
Your #inCHAARG account provides the perfect place to see just how far you’ve come [like before, during, + after fitplan pics ; ) ] Depending on how long you’ve been a part of CHAARG, you have a place to scroll back to your first post-workout photo or the first healthy dish you made all on your own. Having the chance to do that can remind you of why you started + how far you’ve come. You’re doing amazing + you are capable of accomplishing so much more than you may have originally thought. You’re making so much progress — look at your #inCHAARG account whenever you need a reminder of that!
DID SOMEONE SAY VISION BOARD?
Vision boards are so, so fun to make + hang on the wall as an inspiration every time you walk by! Not everyone has the supplies to make them lying around, however, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still make one! Post that quote that reminds you how far you’ve come on your journey or that picture that reminds you to keep working towards your goal. Who knows, you may even inspire a follower! Your Instagram can become your virtual vision board so cover it with quotes, photos, + all things CHAARG.
So post that selfie on your #inCHAARG account if it makes you happy! Celebrate yourself + all that you are as you learn how to love you!
