CELEBRATING OUR INSECURITIES

Dear gorgeous person, you! 


You know that feeling when you've decided to let go of all your fears and jump right in despite your mind going "Are you sure you wanna do this?' and then you do it anyway and you just can't stop smiling? Well, that's kinda how I feel right now. I've jumped head first into the month of October, making youtube videos like I've never made them before, releasing 5 videos per week (except for the slight hiccup last week haha). I knew it would be difficult for lots of reasons including the fact that editing makes my brain waves go nuts.

To add fuel to fire, I decided to make a big deal of it and film with other bloggers. Mainly people I follow on IG. People that inspire me. Feel free to check out my entire video collection here https://www.youtube.com/joyogude/videos



Today's video features the absolutely beautiful Grainne (IG - @cakesweightsandproteinshakes). In this video, we're talking about our insecurities and how we've come to find support with each other and a network of other fitness enthusiasts online. Before I share the video with you, here are a few stills to give you a bit of an idea what we got up to. Our partner workout was amazing. 




First time I've worked out in my garden since we've had it done and it felt really good to utilise the space actually.


The most amazing thing about making this video with Grainne is that in it, we talk a lot about women supporting each other and in the past week, we've both needed support and reached out to each other. You may have seen this picture on my IG page from last Friday. I was feeling a little down about how much effort I was putting into youtube compared to how much I was getting back and guess who came to cheer me up?! So lovely to know that something as beautiful as a friendship has come out of putting myself out there, even though I was a little scared to do it in the first place. If true friendships is all I gain, then to me, it was all worth it.


Have you done a partner workout recently? Do you feel comfortable discussing your insecurities with other people?Do you have an online or physical network of people who keep you inspired? Let me know in the comments below.

Lots of love,
