so you’ve all heard that statement and i am glad our world is moving from stick thin being the only source of beautiful to something more relatable. but is it? i can’t relate to that woman above. she probably has worked her butt off (literally) to look that way. sucking down protein and spending hours at the gym. we have gone from one extreme to the other. i’m either staring at super models and wishing i was thin or staring at these ripped woman and thinking i’m a failure for a lack of rock hard abs. i’m a big fitness girl. i love it. i love working out and eating healthy but i will NEVER look like her. i will not spend my life at the gym 3 hours a day and packing coolers of chicken to every family gathering. i will however workout, eat healthy, and try my best to love myself. but i sure hope that it doesn’t take 6 pack abs for me to be happy.
why aren’t we celebrating a real woman? a woman that spends time with her family, works out regularly, eats an occasional brownie, and has bad hair days? i wanna see and read stories about those women who still find times for themselves without sacrificing a balanced life. in no way am i putting down those who compete in fitness comps or body building i just don’t think its a realistic image to strive for as a regular women. i still want to be considered beautiful without having to turn my life into a fitness comp. i’m starting it here. i am declaring that i will try my hardest to love my body as is and as it’s going to evolve when i have kids someday. i’m going to love the fact my genetics are the way they are and keep working out as i do. my goal for this next week is spend time with carson, eat, sweat, and have fun:) sounds like a good time to me!
that’s my rant for your tuesday.
