Body Acceptance

I have very little of this. 

The other day, Katie said "“Celebrate what your body CAN DO. And forget what it LOOKS like.” which she quoted from -Swim Bike Mom

And yes - this is what I need to do.  I need to focus on what it can DO, not on what it looks like.  

On the same note, I don't want to ignore my body (Not saying that's what the quote is telling us to do), I want to be able to look at different parts of my body and appreciate them.

This morning at the gym, I did 3 back squats at 195lbs.  The same weight as the men in the class.

And these big thick legs are what allowed me to do that. .  If I want to be proud of my squat weight, I have to be proud of my legs.

Again - don't mind the messy room

5 people had this to say:

You have beautiful legs. Powerful, strong, and not to sound creepy - but still soft.

Own it girly! They're like Laila Ali's legs. And she is awesome.
