“I don’t care about being stick-thin. I don’t want stuff to jiggle. Really skinny actresses make me hungry—I see them and think, Honey, you need to eat! I’m lucky I don’t have to live like that. I feel my best when I’m a toned, not flabby, size 8. Women come up to me and say, ‘You’re beautiful and confident, and that makes me feel I can be, too.'” Miranda Lambert in SELF Magazine
I love this. This is how every girl should approach fitness…including myself. It’s not easy but it’s an amazing way to look at it. I have always struggled with body image and looking at myself in a negative way rather than congratulating myself for all the hard work I put in. I recommend reading this article. Since I’m not a huge country fan I haven’t really followed Miranda Lambert, but I now have an all new respect for her.
Who’s excited that it’s Friday?! I took a half day at work to come home and clean the house this afternoon for our BBQ tomorrow. It’s freezing right now, I hope it warms up for tomorrow.
Tomorrow morning I’m also running The Color Run. I’m very excited! I will be sure to post some very colorful pictures afterwards!
Tuesday: Ran 3 miles for training
Wednesday: Ran 4 mile interval run then a quick biceps/triceps workout
Thursday: I went to the gym without a plan so I created a workout on the go then ran 3 miles
