Fitness Influencer Kelsey Wells In Workout Gear Preaches Body Positivity

Embrace the belly bump!

Fitness influencer Kelsey Wells is reminding women there is nothing wrong or unusual about having curves. Wells, 34, shared a reel of herself wearing a one-piece workout outfit, highlighting a small bump on her lower stomach. "That lower stomach bump you've been conditioned to try and get rid of or feel self conscious about?👇🏼Is a normal part of female anatomy! I wish I had known all of this at 14, 19, 23 years old. Let's spread the news and stop spreading the products telling us there's anything wrong with the BEAUTIFUL way we're made. Love you and HAPPY WEEKEND!" she captioned the post. Here's how Wells stays fit, healthy, and positive.


Morning Routine

Wells starts her day with lemon water and supplements. "The first thing I do is take my vitamins and drink a huge glass of lemon water," she told Women's Health. "It just helps me get invigorated. I really think drinking water on an empty stomach right when you get out of bed helps you wake up." She then makes breakfast around 7.30 a.m. "I lean toward hot dishes, so I'll do an egg or egg white scramble with spinach, sometimes potatoes, peppers, and any raw veggies I have in my fridge."


Healthy Travel Tips


Wells has a few tips for staying fit while traveling. "I do two things. One, I do bodyweight workouts like resistance and cardio in my hotel room," she told BeautyHeaven. "And two, I always pack my resistance bands which allow me to add a little bit of resistance and continue training with 'weight,' if you will."


Leftovers For Lunch

Wells is often too busy to prep lunch, so she uses leftovers. "Even when I'm working from home, I feel like if I don't have something prepared, I'll either not eat enough or not eat what my body really needs," she told Women's Health. "It usually looks like a grain bowl with quinoa or rice, and then veggies and a protein source like tofu or eggs. For snacks, I eat a lot of fresh fruit and a lot of raw veggies dipped in hummus."


Subhead Goes Right Here

Wells has a balanced approach to diet. "I'm a big advocate for enjoying all foods," she told Women's Health. "I don't believe in restrictions. If I want a doughnut or French fries, I'm going to eat a doughnut or French fries. I think telling yourself you cannot have something is the wrong path. It's about adding more goodness. I don't eat meat, but I do eat high-protein. I eat a lot of plant-based protein, including different soy or tofu products, as well as eggs. I also eat dairy every day, usually in the form of cottage cheese or Greek yogurt."


Health Is Everything

Wells focuses on health over appearance these days. "My biggest transformation that I have made in my fitness journey has been being able to truly shift my perspective of fitness itself from 'fitness is meant to change my body to help me look a certain way because I need to look a certain way' to the idea that fitness is not about how you look, it's about your health," she told BeautyHeaven. "And it's not just about your physical health, but also your mental and emotional health."
