body confidence

When my own messy life bumps up against the filtered images on Instagram, I can't help feeling inadequate.
Not a doctor, nor full-body coverage, nor society's perception of what a woman wearing a bikini should dictate how I feel.
What your daughter "sees" in the mirror and reality can often be at counterpoint.
Proving self-love is so, so important.
I am currently renewing my fascial stretching certification from the Stretch To Win Institute. (Fascia is sheets of connective webbing that encases and connects the entire body; it unites bones and muscles.) I do partner fascial stretching with clients, but attending the course reminded me how wonderful the motions feel in my own body. I am now re-motivated to prioritize fascial stretching after every run.
Right on, mama.
