*I promise this post has a purpose other than showing you my bum*
So this incredibly inspiring girl that I follow, @omgkenzieee
has started a movement called #cellulitesaturday
and I think that it is SO important!
Guess what dudes, I have cellulite🙋🏼 Yes, me. The girl that works out 6x a week, lifts heavy, does cardio, does plyometrics, eats a well balanced and healthy diet HAS CELLULITE! And if you're a woman and you're reading this, you probably have it too because cellulite affects 90% of women. NINETY!
But here's another thing, IT IS NOT AN INDICATOR OF YOUR HEALTH OR FITNESS LEVEL! Cellulite is GENETIC. Cellulite is the APPEARANCE of fat cells (which we all have). It's literally just the way your skin lays over your subcutaneous fat tissue (the fat right under the surface of your skin).
So YES, cellulite is NORMAL and it is OKAY TO HAVE! It does not mean you're fat. It does not mean you're unhealthy. And you DO NOT "need" to get rid of it.
The "issue" with cellulite is not a health and fitness issue; it's a COSMETIC issue. We have been wired to think this stuff is bad but in reality, it's just as normal as having freckles or brown hair.
I realize that mine might not be as noticeable as some people's; but it's there and it affects me. Do I love this part of my body yet? No, not at all. The backs of my legs are probably my LEAST favorite part of my body. But I'm working towards accepting it, and I hope you are too because guess what, ITS NORMAL!
Happy Saturday beauties💕
