Day 84

Let’s take our intellectual capabilities up a notch when deciding what we think women are supposed to look like.
Paleo Women are Phat, Ancestralize Me

It was the opposite of working out for bikini season. It was working out to be strong, fast, powerful, and functional. It was the opposite of eating so your jeans were a size 2. It was eating so you lived long with high energy and free from chronic illness.

Wow. Where do I begin?

These articles are worth a full read and your consideration. I’m proud that both male and female readers of this blog suggested I read them!

Of course, with our relationship with food and wellness is closely linked to our relationship with our bodies and our body image. If I focus on my physical appearance as the primary benefit or indicator of my wellness over the last nearly 90 days, I will be leaving so much behind. This isn’t about smaller clothes (which, yes, I’ve bought) or toned muscles (which, yes, I have).

Here’s what it’s about for me and what I hope women are striving to live up to when (before) Pearl is 35:

Setting goals and celebrating accomplishing them
Building confidence in body, mind, and soul
Lifting, running, jumping, and throwing stronger, faster, higher, and longer
Having boundless energy
Finding clarity
Choosing responsibly
Being healthy and happy
Belonging to a community

Let’s keep redefining women’s wellness. It takes all of us.
