This week on Fit Bottomed Girls, as a special part of Back to Basics Week, each FBG will share her health and fitness truths—truths that resonate with each of us as we’re working out and living our day-to-day lives. Today, FBG Jenn shares her truths on lifting heavy weights and loving her veggies.
Don’t call me a fitness freak. The only thing freaky about me is my unlimited desire and passion for getting YOU healthier and happier.
My hands may be calloused, hard and unsightly from doing so many pull-ups, but my delts are strong enough to make it more than worth it.
The number on the scale isn’t what drives me. The number of push-ups I can do on my toes does.
Yes, I really do crave kale.
You call me a health nut. I think you’re nutters for watching life from the sidelines.
You think it’s crazy that my favorite meal—above all other foods—is a good, fresh taco salad. Why the freak would I lie about that?!
Don’t tell me I look skinny. The biggest compliment you can give me is to tell me I am strong.
To me, being sore every now and again is a good thing. A really good thing.
You think I’ve cut out most dairy from my diet to drop pounds. Think again. When I eat too much cheese I don’t poop right for a week. There, I said it.
I eat a lot some days and a little other days. Onion rings and beer one night, kale and salmon the next. It’s not a diet—it’s intuitive.
My calves may not fit into most cute boots, but, for me, strong legs beat fashion trends.
Time to spill your fitness truths! Whether it’s on your blog or in the comments below, share ’em with the world! —Jenn
