You all are Wonderful!
I was so comforted yesterday reading all of your words of encouragement and advice for dealing with “time-off” and FOOD… especially as it pertains to this magnificent time of the year we are heading into where office treats, parties, holidays, and leftovers are the norm!
I found this article floating around on Facebook and on Miss Zippy’s page and just had to share– especially since I am in a slight state of “worrisome frustration” with my body at the moment (although your comments yesterday literally pulled me out of my mental slump and made me feel so loved and appreciated… you guys are the best!)
Many of you may have heard of Lauren Fleshman. She is an OUTSTANDING professional U.S runner who is also a founder of Picky Bars (I nibbled on one at the Richmond Marathon!) which are oh so yummy and nutritious!
Here is a post she wrote on a week or so ago, and it is beautiful. And she is beautiful. And we all are beautiful!
Quick Recap— Lauren recently did a photoshoot/run-way walk where she is looking like the gorgeous strong athlete she is!! Lets talk about that 8 pack she is rockin’… She then decides to post what she looks like on a normal basis when she is not spray-tanned up and tightening her abs with all of her might.
Guess What? She still looks freaking beautiful… but in a different way than what she is portrayed to look by magazine covers. The point of the article? NO BODY IS PERFECT… we all have what we consider to be “imperfections.” The key is to be a Runway Rockstar anyways and appreciate what your body does for you!!
I am 100% on board with this and now have a huge girl crush on Lauren Fleshman! Thanks for being REAL!!
I have an exam late this evening, then I am DONE FOR THANKSGIVING BREAK!
I have some fun things planned this weekend I will tell you about tomorrow! I hope you all have great days and smile at least 1,000 times/hour 🙂
Weekend plans and/or Thanksgiving plans!! Where are people headed?
Every tried/heard of Lauren Fleshman and/or Picky Bars?
-The would make great stocking stuffers for athletes… just sayin 🙂
