So I could have easily just posted this first picture and let the ‘oh you’re making so much progress, looking good Vic’ comments just roll in and sit back and love myself off,’ she wrote alongside the post. ‘Feeding my own ego and generally being a bit of a douche. But I wanted this post to be more than that.

‘These pictures were taken on the same day, maybe hours apart- they show the same person. Only difference is in the first one I’ve picked a great pose (bit w*nky but shows the bod well), my leggings are pulled up, the lighting was nice and I filtered it.

‘Now in the second one I’m just kinda letting it all hang out- no filter and no f**ks given.

So I could have easily just posted this first picture and let the ‘oh you’re making so much progress, looking good Vic’ comments just roll in and sit back and love myself off. Feeding my own ego and generally being a bit of a douche. But I wanted this post to be more than that. So this isn’t a ‘THANKYOU so much @prestigebootcamp, I’ve lost a stone in a day and now I’m a new woman’, post, this is not a transformation pic, there’s no before or after picture here. This is me, as I am right now, in both pictures. These pictures were taken on the same day, maybe hours apart- they show the same person. Only difference is in the first one I’ve picked a great pose (bit wanky but shows the bod well), my leggings are pulled up, the lighting was nice and I filtered it. Now in the second one I’m just kinda letting it all hang out- no filter and no f**ks given. (Oh and my ass looks like a pancake but I’m working on ittttt bitches!!! 😂) What I’m trying to say is DON’T get bogged down in all these unrealistically perfect and gorgeous pictures on Instagram- because for every pretty and posey picture posted like my first one there’s a thousand like the second picture that didn’t make the cut or that they didn’t want to share! Just be smart enough to know this and strong enough to not be fooled into feeling bad about yourself- none of us are perfect, no matter what Instagram appears to tell you 💜 But quite frankly we’re all perfectly imperfect and have so much more to offer than a contrived aesthetic anyway!!! 😍 I’m working hard this year to be fit, strong and healthy. To be the best version of myself and achieve more than I ever have but if I’m not doing this in an authentic and honest way- I really don’t see the point. Which is what really motivated me to show my truth here. So here I am, honest, open and full of flaws but really having never gave less of a f**k 😂😂😂 Side note: THANKYOU to @prestigebootcamp for another lovely week. I trained hard, ate right and allowed myself a lot of time for rest and reflection. I’m heading back to London with a renewed sense of purpose and a lot less false nails 😂💅🏼 I love the entire team and can never THANKYOU enough for having me!!! 😍
