I stepped on a scale for the first time in a long time yesterday and I discovered that since I began CrossFit, I have gained 22 lbs. I would like to say I was totally cool with this discovery as most it is muscle gain—but I’m a human and obviously had a minor (major) melt down about it. 22 pounds?!? #yikes
Then, I worked out and in the middle of it, I took a second to observe what my body was doing and it totally began to shift the negative inner narrative that was on relay in my head. I was lifting 105lbs over my head without a struggle. I was working hard but my breath was steady. I was dancing to the music in between rounds of throwing a 14 pound ball up the wall. My blood was pumping. I felt strong. I felt alive. I felt happy and I felt healthy.
I have never been “thin” a day in my life and I never, ever will be. I am thick, strong, athletic and solid af. I worked hard for these 22 new additions to this body and I am excited to see all the goals we crush together. 🤩✨💪🏼 #loveyaselfgirl #crossfit #thickfit #RXSGbodypositivityproject #rosecityathletics #girlswholift #stronger #werkbish #positivevibes #thickthighssavelives #gainz #swoleandflexy
