...because they are ALWAYS hanging out. Besties. Never leaving the other's side. I'm pretty fit, enjoy healthy meals, love to run...
And my thighs touch.
And my thighs touch.

In high school, I would thumb through clothing catalogs and try to understand how in the H-E-double hockey sticks I could have legs that didn't touch. I blame Victoria's Secret models for my teenage obsession with getting the thighs to separate.
|I blame her.|
I remember my mom once telling me that thighs weren't supposed to be apart. They were supposed to touch at the top. Ok mom, whatever. You find me a 15 year old girl who listen to what her mother says about body image.
So why did this random thigh topic come up today? Well, today I had another run on my treadmill. I busted out some new shorts that haven't been worn in close to a year, and did 6 tempo miles:
While running, my thighs were literally "eating" my shorts. You know the feeling? Where they start riding up in the front-heading somewhere we don't talk about on this blog?
Well today, instead of thinking..."geez, these thighs!" I though..."gotta get some new shorts!" Because these thighs aren't going anywhere. And they're not supposed to. I love 'em.
Good thing, too, because I'm not about to stop eating the delicious meals I have been making lately. Some of yesterday's eats--
Exhibit A: gluten-free pasta with veggie sausage, tomato sauce, broccoli and parmesan cheese:
Exhibit B: baked potatoes with greek yogurt, black pepper, broccoli and parmesan cheese.
Do you use greek yogurt in place of sour cream? Any advice/suggestions?
I usually make my greek yogurt with fruit, cereal or sweeter mix-ins, but this was perfect! Even hubs loaded up with lots of yogurt and said it was just like sour cream. P.S.--this might seem obvious, but genius over here opened up vanilla. Not so much. Always use plain!
Are you a genetically blessed freak whose thighs don't touch, or one of the real people?!
Oh, I'm joking! I know we all come in different shapes and if your thighs don't touch, more power to you. No hate mail please. As for me, they touch all right. I think I would have to positively skeletal to get them apart.
