A couple of weeks ago, I was perusing the “new nonfiction” books at my local library, and I picked up one with a picture of a super fit girl on the cover. It was called “The Badass Body Diet” by Christmas Abbott (Crossfit Star). I don’t think I have EVER read a diet book, or had any desire to, but this chick looked so strong and fit, that I decided to check it out.
Two weeks later, and I’ve read the entire thing. This “diet” she follows is no joke. Thankfully, you don’t have to count calories! BUT…you do need to weigh your food. Ummm…who has time for that?!
Anyway, even though it seems entirely daunting and nearly impossible, there is a part of me that really wants to give it a try. Why??? Because she has me convinced that if I follow her meal plan, I will build more muscle…guaranteed. And maybe that in itself wouldn’t convince me, but let me show you a picture of her, and maybe you’ll feel the way I do…
***Side note: When I talked to my husband about these thoughts that go through my head while I’m out on a run, he was completely surprised and said he’d never even thought about that. I’m thinking I’m not alone in being a woman who feels vulnerable while I’m out on a solo run. I don’t like it, and it’s not fair, but it’s reality. So, we need to be strong and ready for any situation that comes our way!
