The Good Burn
Wednesday, February 15, 2012
Last night's cardio was Insanity: Cardio Recovery. It was "recovery" in terms of not alot of jumping and dynamic cardio, but there was alot of lunge/squat work and BOY did that burn! One thing I have always loved about my body is that I have strong legs (ie thicker legs... haha), but while I used to wish now and then that I had thin twiggy legs like skinny girls or models, I am happy with my legs because they are very defined with muscle and I joke to myself that if I were ever in a risky situation, at least I can kick hard with my strong legs!
One thing I would tell my high school self if I went back in time would be that our bodies are fully functional, fully capable, natural machines. Our bodies are so much more than something to just look at; that should be the least of things! So what if you're not great to look at? That's a model and movie star's job! Leave it to them! I don't want that job and its demands. I want a powerful body that can exercise to the max, lift heavy things, cook, clean, play, carry kids, my dog, etc!
Heads up everyone! Strong is the new skinny!
