Pull-ups

Ashleigh Renard pull-ups

Joining @taraschuster T$ in her pull-up challenge. This used to be my least favorite exercise. I could not do a single one. So, I committed to doing ten by my 21st birthday. I maintained that ten for years, even at nine months pregnant. And then I stopped lifting for a decade. This is my new baseline. Seven. And it’s all good. Better than good, actually. In the past decade I’ve learned the true fitness of a body can be measured by its ability to gently house a mind, a heart, and a soul. To hold the best and worst of what comes to you. As @glennondoyle says, “Your body is not your masterpiece; it’s your paintbrush.”
