    Warning: bikini photo. Scroll quickly past if you have a problem with it. I’m inspired by the bikini revolution I’ve seen happening lately (a la sassysquats) and just received this adorable swimsuit in the mail, so here we are.

    This is my body. I didn’t go into crossfit with the intention to look any certain way. In fact, since I started all this I haven’t had a single goal based on looks. It’s always been goals like: get a double bodyweight deadlift; clean and jerk 130#; finally hit unassisted ring dips; score a 100 on my husband’s PT test. I eat pop tarts on a regular basis, I still have a tummy pooch from all the amazing non-“clean” food I eat, and my legs barely fit in jeans unless they’re jegging material (thanks quads). I train to get better, not to look better….and the funny thing is that your body ends up reflecting that anyway.

    I’m confident- not because I can see some of my abs, but because those abs can push me through 50 nearly-upside-down sit ups while holding a 40-pound dumbbell. Not because I can see my leg muscles, but because those leg muscles help me squat more than what people think a little girl with nerdy glasses like me ever could. And really that’s the way it should be. We can look a certain way all we want, but if you can’t do anything with it, then what’s the point?

    So yeah. This is my body and it’s a reflection of the work I do to lift more, run faster, and push harder. And that’s the way it should be, not the other way around. xx

    You look amazing and more importantly, you are amazing and strong. SO PROUD :’)

    Everything I’ve wanted to say but couldn’t put into words.

    I lift heavy because I WANT TO. I like pushing myself to lift heavier every day.

    I don’t do it for the aesthetics, though that’s a plus, I do it for my competitive nature. It fuels me and keeps me sane.

    yyyyeeesssss. THANK YOU.

    Reblogging again with caption and other awesome comments, because some joker deleted the caption off my photo and that bothers me. I want the message back out there. Read the explanation behind this photo, friends, don’t just delete it as if the swimsuit is what matters.

    Fight for achievement, for improvement, for doing something; not just for the photo in the mirror. Aesthetics is always a plus, and you should be proud of the way your body has changed—you’ve earned it! But it’s not going to give you the same sense of satisfaction you get when you’re tossing around a barbell that weighs more than you do, and you stop and realize how far you’ve come.

    I’m gonna cry. WHY DONT I WANT TO WORK OUT FOR HEALTH

    It’s ok if you don’t right now. Whether that’s your primary motivation or not, you’re still doing great things for your health. :) Celebrate that!! And I have a feeling that eventually you’ll not only be pumped about the way your body looks, but also about the new things you find you’re able to do and accomplish with it. :)❤️ keep going!!
