And my thighs touch.
left thigh.right thigh
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.
