My legs dieeddd today. Hectic past month but I’m glad to get back and get better ✨ ...
Write down all the things you are grateful for, that you love, in your life, then notice how long it takes for you to list yourself. 🤯🤯🤯
I rarely get to just ride. To turn off the instructor lens and just enjoy the movement. Honestly, it’s pretty hard, but this morning, with @lisamikelson was just what I needed to check out of reality and into myself. To step into honoring the movement for what it is and enjoying every sweaty part. 💙
Now, back to Texas! ...
Only a couple more hours til I get to go to hot yoga. 🥰🧘🏻♀️Notice I said get to, not have to.
I cannot emphasize the importance of joyful movement enough. I get questions alllll the time about how I stay motivated or consistent. I never consistently exercised up until last year. So what changed? I found a way of moving my body that I love.
It may not burn the most calories. It may not make me the sweatiest. I may not wake up sore after every workout. So what?
Hot yoga has been such an amazing addition to my strength training routine. For one hour a week, I get to move my body in a dark, warm, judgment-free room. An hour to clear my head. An hour to improve my balance and flexibility. But most of all, an hour to appreciate my body and mind and all that they do for me. ❤️ ...
Can I be honest?🤷🏼♀️
Part of me wanted to just post the photo on the left. It looks just like my typical post workout, sweaty selfie check in that I normally share. And after I took it I was like WOAH I look tiny (which is something I NEVER tell myself). But then I thought.. but why don’t I feel that way? I just finished an intense total body workout and I felt bloated and just like ughh😅🙈
So I decided to roll my high waisted leggings down and take a few pictures from another point of view. Sure, my abs are still a bit visible but I definitely don’t think I look ‘chiseled or ripped’ like I do in the picture to the left. Angles, lighting, clothing and perspectives are just a few things that make a big difference in how a picture or a person is portrayed. .
I wanted to keep it real with you ladies and take a minute to embrace (& give myself grace) for what’s below the high waist band. I’m not perfect, by any means. I’ll be the first to admit that I love the occasional glass of wine or mug of beer, my tortilla chips & salsa and some sweet baked treats every now & then. But I also LOVE my body and everything that it does for me, which is why I workout and try my best to nourish my body with as many lean, clean and green foods as possible, while still enjoying life. .
I hope this post encourages you to embrace what’s below the high waist line and show others all your beautiful points of view💜💪🏼
