In true girl form, I had a minor melt down over my body last week.
I lamented the fact that I do all this working out and I still hate various aspects of my body, and I threw myself a top notch pity party. It was a grade A performance from the dramatic side of myself.
After having a night of full-fledged hating my body, I spent the next few days getting myself back into a better mental state. Reading this quote was enough to remind me why I do what I do. It embodies everything I feel about health and fitness.
Yes, I work out to burn calories. I work out to try to improve on my personal problem areas.
But I also work out because I love my body and I want the very best for it. I work out so that I can feel strong and accomplished.
I think it’s easy to nitpick the flaws that you think you have with your body, and forget to celebrate all the awesome things it can do. I challenge you to counteract every negative thought you have about your body with a positive one.
Celebrate your body Tell me what you love! I love my arms! They are probably one of the weakest parts of my body, so when I am able to do something – like a pull-up – they make me proud!
