A much more covered up picture for week 4 of my Lent body positivity challenge. But there’s a reason for that…
So, last week, the lovely Cat at Cat H. Bradley commented that I had great arms (thank you again!) and it surprised me, as I’m always quite derogatory towards my arms – I’m always saying that they’re big, manly arms! There’s been a fair few pictures of me running that I don’t like to look at because my arms look so big.
So I decided to post about my arms this week. And as I couldn’t find any pictures that showed them off over anything else, I decided to post this picture from our day kayaking in Canada last year. Because whilst I might sometimes think that my arms are too muscular, in reality they’re toned, strong, and put up with a whole day kayaking with ease.
I’m grateful for my arms, and that they give me the ability to do heavy lifting in the house when I need to, help power me along running, and swoosh through the water when I swim. And I’m going to try to focus on all these great things, rather than my hang-ups about them being too big. My arms are great just the way they are.
