Some days it’s hard to be sore.
Hard to do every day tasks like laundry and dishes when you have to squat and all your legs want to do is shout at you.
Every day activities most do with ease become a challenge when you CrossFit as much as I do.
Yet, I’d have it no other way.
We are all products of our lifestyle whether we know it or not.
A friend of mine is overweight. She’s been 100 lbs overweight for over 10 years now. She keeps hopping from diet to diet, exclaiming how “this one is better” and “this one will work.”
Another friend of mine bemoans how she can’t lose 10 lbs. Yet her Facebook page is always covered with her out with her friends, drinking mimosas and eating probably more than is recommended. She works out, but hasn’t changed.
Same thing with her.
My mom starves herself. Literally. She is one fall away from death. She can’t remember things because she doesn’t feed her brain. She smokes and has horrible migraines. In her mind though she’s healthy.
I can preach all I want, but you have to listen and want to change your lifestyle.
Then I think People can say the same thing about me. Complaining how I work out too much and I can’t move because I did 300 squats, etc.
Ultimately, it’s your life. You only have one to live. Be happy and content with it.
I know this is hard as I’m still trying to find my sweet spot to have the abs I want yet be healthy and happy and still enjoy all the richness God has blessed me with.
We (especially us women) beat ourselves up so much over looks and in the end we’re all the same. We all age. We all go through the same processes if you’re a mother in terms of bodily changes.
We all face challenges. It’s how you respond to the challenges that determines your mindset.
If it’s truly important, you’ll change. If it’s not and you’re happy with where you’re at, then BE HAPPY! Quit comparing yourself to others and be content with who you are.
If you’re not content, then change it.
Life is what you make it. If you want to starve, then do it. If you want to enjoy your friends and go out all the time, do it. If you want to kill yourself with workouts, do it.
It’s your life, your body, your choice. Don’t let others shame you. Don’t feel bad about it. Embrace it.
Or change it.
It’s your choice….
Now live with it…
