8 weeks between these pictures. Pick it apart however you want, but this is what I'd like you to know is different between the two 🤗
- POSTURE. I started going back to a chiropractor because my mobility sucks and so does anything overhead. Turns out I've been walking around like a girl with her ass stuck out and an arched back. Niiiiiice. Not. 🤦🏼♀️ I'm learning a lot about the importance of pelvic tilts, butt winks, and that if you need to go a bit wider on your squats cause you've got "baby bearing hips" then by all means, do it.
- QUIIIIIIIDS. Baby quads, but quads nonetheless. Fun fact about Alix: I've never seen my legs have any sort of definition. No matter how many sports I've played or how strong I've gotten... there's been nothing that's made the difference in my body's structure like crossfit has. Yes, admittedly my diet and supplementing has gotten a million times smarter, but, I've never a) pushed my body like I have in CF b) never been this strong (mentally or physically if we're being real honest).
- STRETCH MARKS. What? Yeah, you heard me say that dirty little S word. Right after I got done taking the picture on the right I looked in the mirror and holy hell talk about tiger status. Don't believe me? Oooook. When I muster up the courage to post those little devil lines on social you can critique however you'd like. Till then, I'm here to tell you, that stretch marks sometimes happen when you get fat and sometimes they happen when you get strong. The only person who has to accept them and be OK with them is YOU.
- WZA Transformation @thewodapalooza. WZ whaaa? Yeah. Ok so, I've never on purpose taken 'transformation' photos, but 8 weeks ago I entered the WZA transformation challenge as a way to test myself. Do I not commit to things because of me? Do I have to rely on other people's expectancies of me to get things done? Well, turns out, I learned a lot about what motivates me and why/why not I do things during these 8 weeks. Did I submit this photo at the end of the challenge? Nope. I didn't. Why? Because it turns out I was doing it for me.
SOOO, I leave you with this question... whatever you do, do you do it for YOU? #endrant #elivateyourself
