This woman has amazing core strength and stability... Her core strength is very impressive, what I think is more impressive... Is how dailed in her bike fit is... She's so comfortable putting those watts down in that position... Her body barley rocks side to side... This is the type of bike fit and core stability we should all be striving for! @cathrineenolsen 👍
Yesterday was body confidence day 2018, I just wanted to say that it has taken me years to accept my body for who I am. I was a body image researcher during my master and PhD degrees. It might appear that having a great body image is easy if you know the results of studies, the top researchers, and conduct in depth interviews with participants, but that is not the case. I've spent time years ago in out patient therapy at a eating disorder clinic where I struggled with EDNOS which is a combination of anorexia and bulimia. I've been involved in sports and that helped me appreciate my body more but I also compared myself a lot to the ideal of the sport I was involved in at the time.
I have had 3 open heart surgeries as a result of tuberculosis sclerosis @tsalliance The most recent November 2017 with an additional outpatient procedure in March 2018. Scarring and finding my new normal of how my body feels and looks has been difficult for me. I have a zipper chest that is now more apparent than when I was a baby and scarring on my neck from tubes in my jugular veins. This year was been more physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually challenging for me than ever before.
This past summer I joined @cyclebarsouthlake and was able to slowly become more active since my surgeries. Finally, after numerous spin classes I fully appreciate my body for what it is capable of and what it has done for me. I don't know how much I weigh nor do I care. I focus more on how I feel, nutrition, recovery, and overall health and wellness. I feel the most confident in my body when I'm sweating and working hard to keep my body and mind strong. All I know is when I'm on the bike at @Cyclebar something in me changes and transforms me.
What is your story and when do you feel the most confident?
Bianchi Is one of the oldest bicycle manufacturers...
The reason they have been in the industry for so long and actually excelled... Is because they don't waiver from what they know, they stick to their tradition and beliefs... This beautiful Celeste bicycle is the epitamy of Bianchi... They stick to their tradition and make the advancements in the he cycling industry for for them instead of against their tradition... We're defiant lovers of the Celeste machine, how about you guys? 📷 @labicicletta

For once, I am happy that I procrastinated to change my trainer tire! 👌
It's been a long time since I took my baby out on a ride. Even though the anemia has affected my cycling training this season, keeping up with the workouts has been helping with my health.
Being active is everything!
