A Better Body Mentality
13 Thu, 2011 § 6 Comments
I felt strong. I felt healthy. I felt good about my body.
I went to Vertical Relief, the sole climbing gym in Flagstaff, for the first time. Dave & I took a break mid-day & spent our lunch hour bouldering; then we headed back in after Dave got off work for a couple hours more of climbing plastic. The gym is…ok. It is smaller & more expensive than what we had in any of the SLC gyms. I guess that is why monopolies are not a great thing.
Even if the gym itself is not what we are used to, it is still a gym & it has been months since I have climbed. Plus, they do have a horizontal roof which preps us for This. I savored pulling myself up those walls until my skin gave way & ripped a lovely blister on the inside of my knuckle. That’s a good sign to call it, especially when we plan on climbing this weekend. It is supposed to be in the high 40s! Wa-hoo! How sad is it that that feels warm now? 😀
Post climbing snack was a pretty strange craving of raspberry kefir & spelt grain toast with avocado & paprika.
But you just have to listen to what your body wants.
I am listening to my body, treating it right & appreciating everything it can do. Right now, I do not care what my body looks like. My body is beautiful. My body is strong. It becomes more beautiful & stronger every day.
What makes your body beautiful?
