Did you know that it is an actually known fact that if you hold onto a cable with one hand and stare at your opposite upper pec it’ll grow 2x it’s originally size... well people now you know, you are welcome

Part of being human is consistently analyzing. Everyone is guilty of this. With that said, #personal#storytime to share with the internet world:
Everyday I wake up and grab the side of my abdomen, where an old coach grabbed me with his fingers, pinching me like a caliper, and told me I was gaining body fat. He wasn't wrong. I had been gaining a little, but everyday I pinch my side and remember him latching on after nearly a decade has passed. It put a thought in my head that a body with extra fat can't #perform . To some degree this is true, that it can hinder performance. It's simple physics and it can literally weigh you down. Maybe I would've been a better athlete had I been more on top of my nutrition but it doesn't mean I shouldn't be proud of all the things my body was trained to do. This is something that I lose sight of because everyday my first thought is negative. The positive? I could and still can flip my body through the air on command, apparently on steel decks of a ship underway. I can lift incredible amounts of weight comparatively to the average person and I can climb to tops of mountains, enjoying life even if a rainstorm was imminent, on an exposed mountain side, in that particular case.
We all have something that nags us. I came across these videos in my phone and realized that my old coach pinching me with his fingers like they were calipers measuring my body fat never kept me from performing. It never kept me from doing things in life that I enjoy. (My body fat had increased about 2% that season when he sent me back to the sports nutritionist to have it officially checked.) If you have something nagging you, I urge you to look at your accomplishments, look at the things you've been capable of achieving in all areas of life.
