After Iz was born nearly two years ago. I wanted to do a body building competition as a goal to keep moving. In the last few years of growth– the simple and old wisdome of exercising makes one happier still rings true to my core. I believe it’s created a higher vibration to stay active. It helps the mind, soul, body connection–which has helped my mind and spirituallity grow exponentially.
When I tell people I want to do a body building competition they usually say look like WHY????? Pretty sure this pops up in their head. Lots of muscle. And less curves or maybe like a loss of femininity or grace. Now I will say I have had body issues. Wasn’t sure what was wrong with it. Sort of like on Mean Girls how you enter Middle School & High School and realize soooo many things can be wrong with how you look. When asking the universe (aka friends or in person to aqcuantances) or expressing it verbally, “I want to do a body building competition”… this is the usual face of someone on the recieving end of the conversation.
It’s okay universe, freinds and acquantences. It’s probably not for you. It matters to me as part of a self-love journey and is something I’m interested in and something I’d enjoy. Sometimes it can be hard to go against the grain In my mind it’ more like this. This is someone who: Eats well. Sleeps well. Laughs often. Plans & sticks to her promises to self. Has the mental discipline to stay consistent and has dedicated time and effort and a lifestyle to health and wellbeing. It’s a very different picture of fitness or body buiding than what is seen at a compeition. True. The competition is on stage in a binki in front of 100’s of people. And there are judges & posing. Not to mention the high heels. Which is not a strong suit of mine. Nore is any sort of pagentry. Its definetly challenging. So is birthing. So is motherhood. Why not? Here’s to growing, learning and creating more intention. To keeping the post partum blues away & keeping goals alive in motherhood. It can be easy to get lost in the day to day of child rearing. This is time for mommy.
