The diff between crossfit chicks & snotty bitches: I had a horrible day yesterday, I had an endo belly flare up, I looked like I swallowed a beach ball, my body was so wore out that I failed at my lifts & had to just stop. I had errands to run in College Station where one person told me I looked like I put on weight. Wrong thing to say to anyone really but especially with someone who has a chronic disease that inflates their stomach for no good reason. Then another person tell me my legs & butt were too big to be wearing shorts. Again, I've only recently gotten to where I'll wear them in public for that reason & being that I was already feeling depressed, it really upset me. So then today I go to @crossfitgames where I had tons of athletes tell me how much they love my legs & how beautiful they are & how they wished they could get theirs this big. Honestly, it's genetic, but still. They had no idea that's my insecurity or that the day before I holed myself up in my room, completely bailing on my own crossfit class.
This body has come a long way, 50 lbs down, & still have a way to go but I'm posting this imperfect body ravaged by endometriosis to empower my fellow endo warriors to come over to the crossfit side. The mental & physical strength is life changing but the support system by total strangers who don't even know your situation, they just want to see you win, is incredible.
