It's unfortunate that we live in a society that promotes shame around size, celebrates smallness instead of fullness, has created so much bias around what we think able bodies look like, and pushed movement as a form of punishment for what you eat instead of something that makes you feel well. Being fit is not a number on the scale or a certain dress size. Only you know your body and what your fit looks and feels like. Drop a note in the comments and share what you've done this week to celebrate your body and what it does for you every day?
@Margeaux_H I really appreciate the way you framed it—smallness instead of fullness. I hadn't heard it expressed that way yet, and that really resonates. For me it's easier to exercise 6 days a week instead of taking an extra second day off. This week I was tired and unmotivated. I took a second day off. I asked myself if I was being lazy, and I am the least lazy person I know 🤣 so I realized my body was asking for a day off. I went back to bed for two more hours and it was complete HEAVEN 😍
I appreciate this thought, thanks for sharing. I agree that size should not be shamed. It is definitely a specific culture in the US for fitness, bodies, nutrition, etc. Being healthy in your body looks different for so many people! For me, the movements I consider a celebration cycle around interval running, restorative yoga, and heavy weights - i've recently added breath work which i'm becoming more curious about!
