Embrace Them Thighs

So often women are bombarded by images of super skinny women whose thighs never seem to touch.

And for whatever reason we as women try to achieve this even if it involves unhealthy manners.

Well I’m here to let you know if your thighs touch it’s okay!

My thighs touch, my friend’s thighs touch, my mom’s thighs touch, and probably 99% of women’s THIGHS TOUCH!

Get the picture?! πŸ™‚

For me it’s easier to embrace that my thighs touch because it represents a strong, powerful base but for others it’s a little more difficult so check out what Juli Bauer of PaleOMG has to say….

Here’s a raw,uncut article I found by Juli on “Embracing Them Thighs

Updates Round 1

Well it’s been about a week into my training and this is my report:
β€’ I haven’t done an “official weigh-in” (I moved the scale so I could sweep)
β€’ I haven’t measured my body with my handy dandy tape (except my boobs…lol random)
β€’ I have taken ZERO progress pics (except the goofy, fun faces in the mirror) O_o
Most people will think this is a set-up for failure but it has been just the opposite.

Here’s why:
β€’ I buttoned up an old pair of pants that were once way to tight.
β€’ I have given my mind a mental break from the fuckery that was food & body obsessed guilt.
β€’ I have been busy living life!

So all in all that looks like a WIN, WIN, WIN πŸ™‚

Random P.S.: I know the “stigma” is that if you reveal your wish it won’t come true but….IDGAF (<– figure it out, try Google).
Anyway, every time I come across the clock at "11:11" I wish for: Health, Happiness and Courage!

Good Night, Good Morning!

COURAGE

I’m wrapping up week 3 and the theme for this week was COURAGE!

COURAGE

– idiom 1.Β to act in accordance with one’s beliefs, esp. in spite of criticism

You ever have that day, week, month moment where you feel like others are challenging you’re courage?!

The courage that you convinced yourself you had when you decided to diet, train and live a healthier lifestyle?!? The constant “interview” that takes place when you pull out some protein powder or chicken from your purse? The on-going invitations to have “just one bite”?!

Don’t these people know I am striving for greatness?!?

Well I’ve come to realize that “they know not what they do!”
This is my way of rationalizing that the people in my life wouldn’t try to criticize or de-rail my path and are just overall curious. Haha.

So if you’re on a journey to a better YOU I challenge you to maintain this COURAGE despite criticism. It’s often those who want your courage that will criticize!

Until next time…..
