Strong Is The New Skinny

“Set your alarm for 6am. Don’t groan when it goes off and pull the covers over your head, get up and start your day. Put on a baggy top and running shorts. Go downstairs and pour yourself a nice big glass of ice water. Cut up some fruit and mix it in with yogurt. Add some granola. Now go outside. Stretch for 10 minutes. Skip for 5 minutes. Jog for 10 minutes. Run for 10 minutes. Walk back. Lay out a towel on the ground and lie down on it. Do 50 crunches. Yes, they hurt, but they are 100% worth it. When you’re done, get in the shower. Use a nice smelling shampoo and matching conditioner. Shave your legs and wash your body. Exfoliate your face. Get out of the shower and let your hair air dry. Look in the mirror. Do you like what you see? If you do, good for you. Do this every day and you will continue to love yourself. If you don’t like what you see, do this every day and pretty soon you will. Being lazy might feel good at the time, but being active feels better in the long run. How badly do you want it?”

  1. Great Post and photos! I agree 100% I’ve recently started down this journey of claiming my authentic physical ME back. While one might not love the “right now” picture reflected in your mirror immediately. I confirm as a new up at 6er that you will love the accomplishment of getting it done until that mirror image begins to change!

    • Yes it really does feel so good! I woke up this morning and went to bikram yoga at 6:00 and I couldn’t believe how great I felt. I think that once you start feeling good on the inside it begins to reflect on your physical appearance as well:) I hope your journey continues to be beautiful & uplifting!

  2. LOVE this post, it’s such an amazing motivator. I was on a roll with that until I got sick booo but going to start again next week and I know from experience that feels amazing!
