Today was my first day back with J&M Strength and Conditioning since the entire ankle injury from hell. I’ve had to put workouts on my calendar so I make them a priority – they’re non-negotiable and I have to plan accordingly.
Anyway, sweaty face picture for you:
This is a quick post tonight, but I have an interview today over on Hangry Hippo’s blog and she asked some great questions, including:
- I so appreciate and admire your definition of “skinny” on your website: being happy in your own skin. It’s become a loaded word in our society, in that it’s more often about weight than health, about appearances than feelings/emotions. Can you describe more what this quest for “skinny” means and has entailed for you?
- So, you’ve been asked many times about how you got started on this journey and then how others can inspire themselves to work towards health. And you have some great tips. But I’m also wondering, during the hard times (injuries, lack of energy, etc.), what motivates you to keep going?
- Last but not least, I’d like to ask you about “self-imposed shame.” One of your recent posts deals with this issue (Hey, Fat Girl) and you oh so wisely state: “Pull strength from those who lift you up, not those who keep you down.” What a beautiful message. Do you have any other wise advice to dealing with “shame” that you can give our readers?
