TBT: 2-90

Happy V-day!

I want to answer Chia's questions as she's my main "accountability buddy" but our relationship goes way beyond that. Never could I imagine I'd meet such an incredible woman and now she's ALL MINE!

What do you want your body to be able to do that it can't do now? 
 I want to be able to run for 5 minutes without stopping by the end of the 90 days (lung capacity and leg capacity). I want to be able to do effective and confident transitions in both directions.

How do you want to feel about your body? 
I feel pretty good about my body already and only have a few days a month where I feel gross (yay hormones!). A lot of how I feel ties into what I eat and how bloated I am. I'd like to feel less tired, more energetic, I guess. And feel "fit" rather than "guh". (Not that I feel that way all the time). For me it has a lot to do with sleep. I stay up late and then I have to be up with Seth sometimes over night, so at the very least my sleep is disrupted and the worst is we could be up for a few hours. Yucky.

What I Ate Today:
Breakfast Smoothie (2 cups) with home canned sugar less peaches, frozen blueberries, almond milk, 2 heaping tbsp of hemp hearts, tsp of matcha
3/4 cup roasted yams
Go Nuts patty with daiya and sriracha
Handful raw spinach
40 grams salt and vinegar chips! (vegan to boot!)
LOTS of vegan popcorn w/ nooch and earth balance and salt
1 cup chili, 1 handful of spinach, sprinkle of daiya
10 chips (corn) and 3 small pieces dark vegan organic chocolate (i bought it before i started the challenge and vegan chocolate is SO hard to come by! I had been waiting a long time for it. It was delicious)
2 Litres water

2 hour derby practice (excellent amazing hard working derby practice. so much sweat and stink!)

Awesome stuff sweetie :) Keeping focus on the answer of "what I want my body to to" keeps me off of the issues of what I think I should look like according to the outside images the media presents. My favourite inspiration in the past has been one of the US Junior Olympic Weightlifters. By society's standards she is "obese". But by anyone's standards she is a world class athlete: she can slam dunk a basketball from a standstill, and lift double her body weight over her head. She truly challenges people to re-examine what an athlete is and looks like.

The only thing that matters is what you want for yourself.

Love you. Keep up the great work.
