NO WEIGH MAY! We are halfway there! This is your middle of the month check in! (Not Your Weekly Weigh In!) I know personally, the first week was a battle but this week was easier. Like anything we are addicted to, its hard to let go of that comfortable feeling of getting on the scale every since day. But as we all know, life begins at the end of your comfort zone! Instead of focusing on that number, I hope everyone is focusing on their meal choices, going out for walks, jogs, runs, yoga, crossfit, whatever floats your iceberg ladies!
Today's Challenge, strip down completely NAKED, no panties, socks or anything! Stand in front of a body mirror, or the largest mirror you have and find TWO parts of yourself that you LOVE!... Personally, I have the tiniest little beauty mark on my left oblique, gently places right below my rib cage. It's one of my favorite spots because as I get stronger, and my torso gets tighter, my little beauty mark gets a little bit sexier. I also love my shoulders. A major part of my body that I've always hated and cursed for being too big, broad, or out of proportion. But I've learned to love my shoulders and the burdens they can carry. Physically and metaphorically. I love the little dips and grooves of my collar bones. The slope of my neck and triceps are strong and kissable. They've carried me through Crossfit WODs I NEVER thought I'd be able to conquer, while supporting me through the roller coaster of emotions women tend to go through. My shoulders, while knotted with stress and soreness, are gentle, tender, and loved.
Ladies, it's time we stop hating our bodies. Treat yourself with kindness and respect. Mostly, remember this. If somebody said the things about you, that you think about yourself, would you still be friends with that individual? Why do we allow ourselves to be so negative and cruel to the one person we should love unconditionally, ourselves?!
Happy Halfway! XO Cheers.
