Running is an incredible exercise, but many people claim it has its unwelcomed consequences.  From a body break-down to re-shaping your body in a negative way, many of these myths keep people from soaking in all the amazing benefits running has to offer!  Let’s break down these myths once and for all and throw our tennis shoes on!Chelsea Crockett- run

  1. “Running will make you bulky.” Running is an extremely slimming exercise that burns body fat.  If you place a lot of pressure on your quads and do uphill running, then you risk the potential of having bigger thighs (the healthy way). 
  2. “I will start chaffing between my legs.” While this is very true for most people, it is an easy fix.  Try wearing leggings or spandex under running shorts to keep this from happening.      
  3. “You have to run every day to get better.” Running every day can be harsh on the body, especially if you are a newbie.  Switching up your routine (elliptical, bike, etc.) will improve your running as well!
  4. “Running is bad for your body and joints.” The only thing that comes from running is a healthy body.  Never push your body too far. 
  5. “Running is hard.” Running is one of the best stress relievers there is by releasing an abundance of endorphins to the brain.  You don’t have to be a long-distance or power runner to gain the benefits.  Going for a jog is very relaxing!

Who’s ready to go for a run with me?!

5 Ways to Love your Body the Way it Is

How often do we wish we had someone else’s body? That we had smaller thighs or a narrower face? Or that we had a flatter tummy or tighter tush? Why don’t we just start to love our body the way it is? I think that if we start to do this, we will be so much more content and happier in our life. Here are a few reasons that you should love your body just the way it is:

  1. You can do so much more with your time other than worrying about your figure. You have things to do, people to see! love-your-bodyHave lunch with friends, read a new book, clean out your closet, anything but fret about your body!
  2. Food is yummy and meant to be devoured. No one wants to go through life never knowing the earth-shattering goodness of a donut. Indulge a little every once in a while!
  3. Being healthy is what matters. As long as you are eating well and exercising frequently, then you are good to go. Not seeing drastic drops on the scale? Try changing your workout routine up a bit and substitute out some not-so-great snacks out of your diet. You will see a difference!
  4. Looks aren’t everything. No matter what this society tries to tell you. Instead of going through life always wishing you looked like someone else, embrace YOU and YOUR beauty! There is no one like you!
  5. The perfect body doesn’t exist, so don’t worry about chasing it. Your body was made for YOU and YOU only! That means that it is perfect for you.

Stop trying to change your body all the time and take a second to actually appreciate the one God gave you. You are fearfully and wonderfully made, don’t forget it!

XOXO, Chels
