Earlier today, I drove to Red Bluff, CA to visit my mom and her crazy dog Henry. On the drive to Red Bluff, I listened to Virgie Tovar and Nicole Antoinette talk about diet culture, fighting fatphobia, feminism, desire, and more. The conversation reminded me to be grateful for the body I inhabit and the strength I’ve built since starting CrossFit. For example, today Mom and I moved a 100-pound oak table into the car, unloaded Mom’s filing cabinet, and put piles and piles of old papers into the recycling bin. It was like a mini CrossFit session! I’m not skinny, but I’m strong, and that makes me feel like a badass.
If you’re curious about the topics I mentioned above, listen to Nicole and Virgie’s conversation here.
