So without sounding vain I thought I'd write about why my body is amazing!
First off it survived years of partying, drinking more than I should, sleeping less than I should, the usual and it came out of it pretty well intact!
Then it did this.... and produced this!
And if that was not amazing enough it produced food to give my gorgeous little girl everything she needed for 6 months, and continued to feed her until she was 18 months old! If you take a step back and think about it that is too amazing fro words! Its also gave me a delightful set of stretch marks but as this is a positive post we'll not dwell on that!
I was a keen gymnast in my youth and remain pretty flexible (it helps that I am hypermobile!) but it's still pretty amazing that I can still do this at 35!
It's amazing how strong you are without knowing it! I regularly pick up (and throw around, in a good way!) a 26kg child, now if someone asked me to lift that at the gym I'd probably say I couldn't.
I think I'm going to focus on gaining instead of losing. Gaining flexibility, gaining strength, gaining leanness, gaining confidence......
So yeah they may not be perfect but our bodies are pretty amazing! What amazing things can your body do?
