Something about moving had me terrified about maintaining my progress. โฃ
โฃ
In the past, Iโ€™ve let moving get me completely off track with my fitness journey. โฃ
โฃ
Couple that with the end of our 100 day program, a change in my gym schedule, and I knew it could easily be a recipe for disaster. โฃ

Appreciate your Strength

I still remember the first time I discovered stretch marks on my thighs. โฃ
โฃ
I was ten years old and so embarrassed that my body seemed to just keep growing. โฃ
โฃ

โฃ
And suddenly I had even more proof of that. โฃ
โฃ
I quickly learned to pick out allllll the things I hated about my body, stretch marks included.โฃ
โฃ
But Iโ€™d also like to argue that that hatred of my body also taught me my biggest lesson. โฃ
โฃ
I decided I was going to learn everything I could about how to make my body shrink. โฃ
So I started to learn about nutrition. โฃ
Started to move more. โฃ
And after YEARS of destroying myself to lose weight I finally learned balance. โฃ

My ability to move. โฃ
And Iโ€™d like to argue that thanks in part to those stretch marks I am the person I am now. โฃ
โฃ
I became athletic. โฃ
I learned what it meant to be dedicated. โฃ
I made a living out of sharing my passion for fitness and nutrition with others. โฃ
โฃ
Now those stretch marks are a sign of my strength, acceptance for my body, and are a tiny little piece of why I continue to work hard today. โฃ

GRATITUDE

โ€œStop treating fitness like itโ€™s a punishment.

You can choose to eat and exercise in a way that significantly improves the way you look and feel.

Thatโ€™s not a punishmentโ€ฆ

Thatโ€™s a privilege.โ€ – Carter Good
