STRONG IS THE NEW SKINNY.
I don't remember when I first saw this statement but it has changed my life.
At 20 years old and 110#, I could not get up a beginner-level climbing wall. Skinny never felt worse.
Then one day about 5 years later, I military-pressed a 35# kettlebell. 15 times. Strong has never felt more amazing.
I live by this now. I hear it in the fitness community. I see it on t-shirts and tank tops worn by women, like me, who value their strength. I encourage you to stop and re-check your goals. Strong? or Skinny?
Don't be a slave to cardio equipment.
Eat delicious, high-quality fuel.
Lift weights that make you feel powerful.
LOVE YOUR BODY. TODAY. JUST AS IT IS. JUST AS IT WILL BE.
