It’s now 7 days through my 14 day #weloveourbodies challenge and I’ve learnt a few things which have surprised me.
I thought that it would be easy for me to find something every day that I love about my body as I think of myself as pretty high on the scale of body positivity but that’s not really the case.
After the first few days I was having to really think about positive things to say about my body and realised that actually some of my weaknesses are strengths and that I need to embrace them.
Thanks to this challenge I’ve looked at my scarred legs in a new way, realised that I’m lucky to have great balance so I can indulge in my love of cycling and faced my fears of being upside down in a handstand.
What do you love about your body? Post something on Twitter or Instagram, use #weloveourbodies and tag me @fitology_uk. You might even make it into the round up at the end of the challenge! It’s time to spread some body positivity…

I’m scared of being upside down. There, I said it. And that is precisely why I’m practicing my handstands, to get over my fear. I love that I have fears because they give me something to work towards and overcome. Without fear we have no goals and without goals we have no focus.
