I have this fear: I fear that when my girls see me working out and choosing to eat real/healthy food, they will think I’m doing it to be skinny, To look better to gain approval from the world.
I don’t believe you need to look a certain way, be a specific size, or have a certain body fat percentage to be beautiful.
I believe in fueling your body so that it can take care of you, your health and your mind.
I believe in working to be strong so that you can take care of others.
I am proud of what I have done with changing my eating habits and working out.
I am proud of the fact that I’ve been able to fight depression and anxiety and win. I know that when I have to face that battle again taking care of my body will serve me in ways you can’t even imagine. I know as I sit here fighting a cold that if I give my body the nutrients it needs it will take care of me.
I want to be strong.
I want my girls to value themselves, their minds, their personalities, their talents, and yes even their bodies.
I want my girls to take care of themselves mind, body and soul.
I wan them to know that mommy works out to be strong, not skinny, and there is a BIG difference.
If I’m honest I’m scared you think the same thing. When I post results you think its all about the weight loss (my next results post will prove that wrong) that I’m so focused on ‘the perfect body. I’m scared your missing the point, I want to be healthy and strong so that I can live the life I dream of.
