The things I love about my body

Thursday, August 22, 2013

Today my spark coach community assignment asked that I celebrate me by blogging about at least one thing that I love about my body; 3-5 for us overachievers out there.

After some consideration, I really love my mind the most. I adore exercising it and will probably be in school in one way or another for the rest of my life. My mind really guides everything else that happens with my body. So keeping my mind strong should help to keep my body strong and healthy.

I really like my lower legs. I love the power I have in them, especially the funky muscle I get to the side of my shin from walking backwards while moving stuff.

I'm starting to love my arms again as they get stronger. Proud to report that I was able to complete the first day of the 21 day fitness challenge offered for free online by yoga journal. It was very arm intensive with a whole lot of chata rangas (sp?) and I did not find it as hard as I had expected - not to say it was easy! I still burned 200 calories over the course of the 30 min routine (according to my heart rate monitor).

Think that about sums it up for now.

    Our absolutely awesome bodies do astounding things every single day to keep us alive. Replacing cells, constructing bones, moving us around obstacles. It is totally mind boggling!
    This makes me think, what do I like about my body? It is challenging because I don't think that way about myself...
    I like the dip where my shoulder becomes a bicep. I like that my thighs don't touch in the middle any more, I like my smaller new bum.
    Thank you for asking an interesting question.
    (I really admire your brain too!)
