This post title may be misleading. I’ve never ever had skinny legs.
You best believe at 3 years old I had no idea that my legs were anything. In fact I probably didn’t know what skinny was.
Then as I got older I was known for my strong legs by my sister. I remember her joking with me and saying they were like weapons. It never phased me much.
Then I got into dance and started to not like my legs so much. They were a little bigger than everyone else’s and as my thighs continued to expand from more and more dance I hated them even more.
Enter CrossFit and let’s be honest, my legs are not skinny. I’m not afraid to admit it. I took a picture of my brand new custom Nanos (thanks Katelyn) before crossFit and groaned at my massive thighs sticking out in the picture. Then I stopped and thought about what I was doing. My legs have carried me through years and years of dance. My legs have put up with years of restricted calories only to never once fail me with an injury. My legs have helped me to back squat 215lbs. That very day my legs jumped on top of a 24 inch box 60 times without failing me. My legs are strong, and they may never be skinny but I am proud of them. My legs show just hard I push every day in CrossFit. They show that I don’t often give up on something I believe. They show that it is okay to be strong and powerful and still feel pretty in a skirt. I may never love jean shopping and I may never have dainty. pretty legs but you can bet that my legs will continue to carry me through years and years of fitness and that is something to be proud of.
So tell me…
What are you proud of?
