Emily Skye Wants You to Know That It's Okay to Fall Short of Your Goals
The Aussie fitness guru Emily Skye has been dominating the #realtalk game for quite some time, opening up about how gaining weight made her happier and showing the real side of those seemingly perfect abs that flood your social feeds.
Ever since announcing her pregnancy, the creator of F.I.T. programs has taken her candidness to a whole new level by embracing all the ways her body has changed as well as shutting down haters who think they know what's best for her as she becomes a first-time mom.
Now the 32-year-old is delivering a very important message explaining why it's okay to cut yourself some slack from time to time (especially when you're pregnant!) and why you shouldn't beat yourself up about not meeting your personal expectations.
"I'm in struggle town today," the influencer wrote. "I'm feeling unwell and very tired. I had press and meetings but had to postpone a couple of things because I wasn't well enough."
Like a lot of us, Skye couldn't help but feel disappointed in herself for not pushing through like she usually does-but realized she wasn't giving herself enough credit. "I quickly stopped that way of thinking," she continued. "I'm pregnant and exhausted and I need to cut myself some slack. All we can ever do is the best we can so that's what I did and I'm not going to beat myself up because I couldn't finish my day."
To those who often find themselves in her shoes, Emily says: "If you're ever feeling disappointed in yourself just remind yourself that you're human and can't always do everything or get everything right! I'm sure I'll have many more days feeling like this when I become a parent!!"
We all have hard days-and that's okay. It's important to put your health and well-being first so you can rise up to the challenge another day and totally kick ass next time around.
