My Transformation Tuesday

These arms. 💪🏽
.
Man what they’ve been through in three years……
.
They’re what locked tight around my husbands arms on the day we said “I do.”
.
They’re what have taught hundreds of Spanish lessons through song, dance, and imitations to middle and high school students.
.
They’re what have held onto various friends and loved ones over the last few years in both sadness and joy.
.
They’re what rock my most precious miracle, our baby boy Hudson to sleep and hold him, reassuring him he is safe and loved.
.
They’re what hug my husband every day when he walks out that door, and then when be returns too.
.
They’re what allow me to respond to messages from women looking for support on their health and fitness journeys.
.
They’re my strength. They’re a gift. They tell a story.
.
My arms used to be something I was insecure about. I never had any muscle tone or definition. I always had that back arm “flab” that dangles some when you wave at someone across the hall.
.
Even on my wedding day, the picture in the left, I see my arms there and I think nothing special about them other than that they are just….there.
.
Over the course of three years from when that picture was taken, my arms have taken me through a lot of things.
.
As I was finishing up my upper body workout tonight with my husband, I could not help but think about how grateful I was for these two body parts as funny as it may sound.
.
The one area on my body I hated to see pictures taken of because to me they looked “fat”, is now the one area I love most! Simply because, to me, they tell an incredible story.
.
So much fight, hard work, love, tears, tenderness, and diligence has gone into making my arms a strong and secure place. And through all of that, I’ve experienced some pretty amazing things with these two arms.
.
They are a symbol of my strength. A symbol of my dedication to working hard.
.
It’s hard sometimes to focus on what you LOVE about your body when we live in a society that tears everyone down so quickly. Try it though!

What is one thing you have grown to love about YOUR body? What is your#TransformationTuesday?
