Me: [Walk out of Sports Authority Fitting Room.] Is this shirt too tight?
Hubs: No, it looks fine.
Me: [Look down at chest.] Are you sure?
Hubs: That’s just your body.
This is my body. This is my body and I love it even with my giant chest.
These pants are so soft. I would love to work out in them. But they emphasize how pear shaped I am and how very large my hips are.
This is my body and even my hips; I will not let it stop me from buying workout clothes.
It’s hot today. I think I should wear one of my new shirts and those soft pants to the gym. Wow. This isn’t hiding a lot of flaws.
This is my body and I will wear comfortable workout clothes even if I think my butt looks big.
I feel so much slower than everyone else at the gym. It doesn’t matter that I’m just starting out again. I want to be Better! Faster! Now!
This is my body and I will move at a pace that is right for me.
I want to avoid more injuries, so I need to be smart and follow my Trainer’s instructions.
This is my body and I am learning how to be strong and fit.
It’s my birthday. I want to celebrate with a brownie. Gluten doesn’t matter. It’s my birthday. My stomach hurts.
This is my body and it doesn’t want gluten, no matter how much I associate a treat with a birthday. Time for a new tradition.
My ankle rolled again. I fell down the stairs.
This is my body and I must be cautious because my ankle is a trickster.
On Monday, I burned 726 calories while I was at the gym.
This is my body and I’m going to be pretty badass.
Thank you to my husband for saying such a simple sentence to me. It’s just your body. My body may have certain shapes and quirks, but it also has unlimited potential. Whenever a negative thought creeps into my mind, I remind myself, this is my body.
