Body Image Love

❤️🏋️‍♀️💋BODY IMAGE …. LOVE❤️🥳🥰

I’m totally done w the body shaming. I’ve spent my life hating what I look like. Even tho a good portion of that was totally dumb as I’ve spent a lot of my life very fit.

😔Kinda started as a young person being made fun of because I got … you know, a healthy backside. 🤣🤣🤣

😔Then all the guys/boyfriends/husbands that went for prettier, younger etc (because of their own stuff and society). The pictures on the playstations and such … front of magazines, etc etc. society brainwashing us into what’s sexy.

😔 Add crap from the past that is like poison for the self esteem/worth, no fault of our own. That’s a hole that’s hard to climb out of. And who sits in that hole with us. Most of the time when we express those (real) feelings no one empathizes w us, instead they tell us we are silly “oh you look fine” (aka our feelings aren’t legit and real) and makes us feel even more of a loser. Or saying something dumb like “you are what you eat” “the scale doesn’t matter” (f yeah it does). How about say … “I feel yeah, I struggle w x,y and z myself.”

😔 Add that most of our common self medication methods to deal w all the stress and trauma, drama and adulting does us ZERO good in the feel good about ourselves or waist lines departments. Like drinking. That’s a stupid habit that really does us no good when not kept in check. Or eating crap.

So here’s my CHALLENGE TO YOU, even if you want to make changes to your appearance, love yourself as you are now. Be grateful for what you are, what you can and have accomplished.

❤️👊🏻🐺 Here is my plan:

✅ GRATITUDE and a good healthy dose of don’t give a RIP what others think.

❤️My body has played epic amounts of soccer and sports.

❤️ I’ve been graced w 5 babies. Have some grace for yourself BK!! (you can see the stretch marks to prove it!)

❤️ I’m a 3 time Ironman finisher. Climbed Longs Peak. My #fluffystrong is amazing.

✅ Find a way of eating that makes me healthier, happier and all that. For the long term. And do it, stick w it as an act of LOVE, don’t let busy life, stress and low self worth get in my way. 💗

✅ Work on being comfortable more naked. Hahahaha. I made toast topless the other day. Hubz liked it. I saw that. Not a sexual way. He liked that I was comfy in my own skin, and making him toast. 🤣🤣🤪

✅ When he says I look great or he finds it sexy …. BELIEVE HIM. Guys are different than us. Guys. Tell your gals you find them cute and sexy. Ladies. You too.

LADIES!!! Let’s love our bodies more. Changing it is so much easy when done out of love instead of hate.

Me. I’d like to drop 20 pounds. I don’t think I look bad. It’s mostly the thigh rubbing and inability to stop that weight. I want to be HEALTHY. and love my body. Be ok w naked. And in jeans. And tri kit and what not. ❤️❤️❤️

ROCK OUT THE SPANDEX!!! #graceandgrit

YOU ARE AWESOME!

Biking Faster: VO2 Max

🤩🥳LET'S TALK GETTING FASTER ON THE BIKE🥳🤩

Author: Coach John Hill


✅ Today we are going to focus on aerobic capacity, or what most of us know as the holy grail of VO2 Max. Most of us chase this one with a passion but do we really know what it Is and how to measure it
✅The faster you peddle, the harder you breathe. Also, the longer you peddle, the harder you breathe. And if you sustain a fast cadence long enough, you will eventually find yourself breathing as hard as you can. Exercise scientists have a special term for breathing as hard as you can: VO2max. Research has shown that VO2max accounts for roughly 70 percent of the variation in race performances among individual athletes. Thus, if you are able to ride 5K one minute faster than I can, it is likely that your VO2max is higher than mine by an amount that is sufficient to account for 42 seconds of that minute.
✅The best way to increase VO2 max is interval training with an all out effort for approximately 6 minutes. One could do a VO2 max workout that would Include a 10 minute warm up, Immediately followed by a 6 minute time trial then followed by a 10 minute cool down. In doing this type of quick sets the VO2max slowly but surely increased and the ability of blood to carry oxygen to the muscles.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Workout:

  • warm up with easy peddling ~100 watts
  • every 2 minutes increase the workload ~36~50 watts
  • at the lower limit of your HR target take a short break
  • peddle easy for 3-5 minutes

THEN:

  • 2 minutes @ VO2 max intensity
  • 8 minutes @ threshold intensity
  • 10 minutes of easy peddling
  • 2 minutes @ VO2 max Intensity
  • 8 minutes @ threshold intensity
  • 10 minutes of cool down

Remember to refuel immediately after the second VO2 max session, give yourself the best opportunity to recover quickly so you real the benefits of your effort.
