What would you do if you could eliminate all of your current physical or financial or emotional barriers and do ANYTHING? Forget the fact that this is a Tummy Safe™ fitness site, and that you may have a diastasis. Put EVERY injury, every ache, every pain aside for a moment.
Maybe you’ve always wanted to downhill ski, but “It costs too much and I’d look ridiculous, and they probably don’t make bibs in my size!” But again I ask, what athletic feat would you strive to accomplish if you had the strength, the stamina, the patience, the fearlessness, your pre-pregnant body, the drive, the motivation TO DO IT? Here’s what some of our facebook fans had to say:
Blair –>Climb every mountain in the northwest!
Teresa–>Run for miles along the ocean and breathe in the cold misty air
Becky–>Go rock climbing! I have always thought that was so neat. Also, snow boarding!!!
Iyesha–>I’d be hiking up a tremendously tall mountain and running off it with a hanglider!
I talk to a lot of people who say “I can’t.” But in my mind the word “can’t” is a dirty four-letter word that is far worse for you mind and body and soul than F*** or Sh** … My mom would add “damn” to that list because she’s sweet like that. If you have told yourself that YOU CAN’T do something because you are scared or you body is too big, too small, too weak, too fat, then you are lying to yourself and YOU are your own worst barrier to chasing the dreams that your creator has given you. Let me encourage you in this short video, but grab your kleenex first.
God made this world for us to explore and enjoy. His plan is NOT for you to fall apart as you age but for you to stay strong, healthy and fit. Just because you’ve been pregnant, you don’t have to settle for stress incontinence, diastasis and a weak core. Just because you had knee surgery, you don’t have to settle for never hiking again. Just because your hips are full of osteoporosis, you don’t have sit in a chair the rest of your life. In fact, the opposite is true, and you are DESIGNED to heal!!! So if you could do ANYTHING, what would YOU do? Comment below!
