At the Beijing Olympics, the morning of the preliminary heat, he got the news that his grandma had died. He ran, but ended up doing horribly. He cried the whole day. He vowed that he would win a medal for her before he retired. And today in London, he won the gold. That picture on the ground is of himself and his grandma.
Just know you made her proud. This day, and every other.
As fitblrs, we often become obsessed with the idea of “washboard” abs. We want a solid core and the deep lines that go with it. But sometimes we overlook the benefit of a soft core. Core strength doesn’t mean 6-pack abs, simply:
core strength: the strength of the underlying muscles of the torso, which help determine posture.
You can have a strong core without the visible muscle. Embrace your strengths. They are beautiful. And if you were blessed with a soft, pliable core, then you are lucky to have an advantage in things like belly dancing and yoga.
Strength comes in many forms and they are ALL beautiful. <3

haha, it definitely was! I mean, the injury hurt, and then it was really painful after the surgery. It is doing well now though. The surgery was about a year and a half ago, and as I continue to train it gets stronger!
