There are lots of healthy body shapes out there. Some are strong and muscular, some are long and lean, some are a bit soft in places, and some are a mix of all three. There are healthy people who only eat the cleanest of the clean and others, like me, who mainly eat good food but can totally get down with some nachos and beer.
When I look in the mirror, I see some wobbly parts and places that used to be a bit higher. BUT my goal is not to have washboard abs and be magazine-worthy. My goal is to enjoy life, to eat well most of the time, to drink a shit load of water, and to sweat my ass off, on most days. My goal is to be strong and durable and have a frame that is aligned. I want to be able to move for hours, to balance and jump and twist and reach and fall and do cartwheels. I want to have legs, a core, and arms that propel me. The "mirror muscles" are not the ones that I need or want. The muscles that I need and want and work hard for are the ones that will keep me moving 40+ years from now. Sedentary is NOT an option for me and I really hope that it's not for you. We are all a work in progress and we should feel grateful that we have the chance to try to always be better.
What's your plan for this week? Are you going to move a bunch and drink a ton of water? Will you spend some time preparing your healthy menu to keep your strong body well fed? I hope so because really, you will feel a great sense of accomplishment and pride when you do.
