I am not

I am not, nor will I ever be, an XS by most store's standards. Some days, I'm not even a small.

More power to me.

I am not, nor will I ever be, an 8 minute per mile runner. I probably won't be a 9 minute per mile runner.

More power to me.

I am not, nor will I ever be, a fashionista. I will always look out of place in cities like New York, L.A., Paris, Tokyo and Milan. I will always look like I'm from the Midwest.

More power to me.

I am not the girl who cares about her weight. I kinda brag about it these days.

More power to me.

I am not one to care about my jean size. Jean sizes are the most un-universal set of sizes in the history of the world, anyway. Seriously. WTH?? It takes forever to find the right size when I go jeans shopping these days and it bugs the crap outta me!!!!!!

More power to me.

I am not the girl who feels guilty about skipping a workout.  I am the girl who suddenly wonders why her fuse is shorter than normal and then gets annoyed with herself when she realizes why (skipped workout).

More power to me. 

I am not one who refuses to indulge in a trip to the ice cream place. Or a drink. I am the girl who eats and drinks everything in sight until I finally get the one thing I'm craving. So I just give in after a week to save everyone from that disaster.

More power to me.

I am not the girl you need to worry about getting some type of unhealthy addiction. Unless you classify reality TV as an unhealthy addiction. In that case guilty as charged.

More power to me.

I am not a lot of things, but what I am is an athlete. My current focus: shaping my body into the best machine it can be ... while still indulging in wine, gummy candy, chocolate, ice cream and the occasional whiskey mixed drink. I'll never be a fitness model, but you can bet I'll be selling tickets to a pretty decent gun show sometime soon. You'll never be able to bounce a quater off of my abs, but you'll be able to bounce it off my ass by the time I'm 30. And I will never run a sub-20 5K or a sub-4 marathon, but I'll still be out there,  crossing that finish line and celebrating like I did anyway.

More.

Power.

To. 

Me.

  1. Yes, reality TV is an unhealthy addiction. I know because I work in reality TV. But this is a great post! It needs to be on the Loop, Eliz, so that lots and lots of people see it!
