The way my body has changed really surprises me…sometimes in good ways, others in bad.
Ahah, obviously pretty stoked about my progress over the past few days. I haven’t posted a picture in a while, mainly because of a lack of body positivity, but today I’m feeling strong. I did a pretty intense workout challenge with my Air Force buddies (if you want the deets, message me, there was quite a bit to it) and I’ve been eating real clean. My obliques are surely making an appearance. I’ve always had trouble with the lower guys, maybe someday they’ll say hello.
Decided to kick my insecurities in the face today by wearing what I consider to be the most terrifying shorts in my closet. Truth is, it wasn’t that terrifying (AND my workout was all running, so my thighs, butt, etc. were bouncing around). CRAY.
Today I feel fucking ripped. Enjoy my duck face.
Lately, I’ve been having a tricky time loving my body and the changes it’s been going through. But in honor of the Supreme Court hearings, I’m focusing on acceptance and pride and love. Take a look at yourself today and be thankful for all that you have and all that you are. Smile a little more and see how you can transfer this positivity to all beings around you.
I’ve been having a tough time lately. I’ve been told by my doctors not to weigh myself as often as I used to, and I’ve been listening, but every time I do, it seems as though the number is going up. But the weird thing is that I really don’t feel very different in my body. Sure, I’m not as defined as I was in the summer when I was at my lowest, or even a few months ago as I was first beginning recovery, but it feels different now and it’s really hard to handle. I noticed I’ve been restricting and counting again and my moods have been all over the place. Trying really hard to love my body and fuck the scale.
Wow. I did THIS with my body this morning. Grateful.

All in a little over 13 minutes. If you have the time, give it a go, and let me know how you do!
AH I haven’t felt this body positive in a really long time and it feels amazing. Sure my legs are humungo but my body is rockin’ so I don’t care.
From my early morning gym session.
It’s funny how things work out. I was in the middle of writing up a post about this picture, when Zachary texted me a screenshot of it telling me how great he thought I looked in it. Originally, my reblog was going to explain how I was confused and thought it was funny that I posted the picture when I first did, because in my eyes I think I look really soft and weirdly curvy and unattractive. I had Zach explain further why he liked it, and it pretty much went against my own thoughts.
Pretty interesting how our minds see completely different things. Still don’t know how I feel about it, but hey, I’m not deleting it, so that must be saying something.
