Does This Make My Butt Look Big? by Coach Kelly
So, the other day I was trying on clothes (and maybe some cute things for our trip to the beach next week). I usually just avoid jeans and pants altogether because of my quads and butt. Seriously, #thestruggleisreal In addition to the fact that the “petite” sizes are too long for people who are 5’0″ tall like myself, there’s no room for quads that can squat double body weight. Anyone else relate?
So many clothes fit weird since doing CrossFit. I tried on a button up shirt, you know the kind where you can roll the sleeves up and it fits loosely (and comfortably) around your forearm. Hah, I only rolled up the sleeves two times then I thought I might Hulk out of it. Okay, let me try a different style I thought. This one had an off the shoulder look with straps which could highlight my shoulder nicely. Um, no. The shoulder strap was so tight, I had scap-muffin. Not a good look.
Next! Oooh, a fitted dress. This will be great to show off all my hard work. This dress hugged in all the wrong places. Apparently it’s supposed to gather around your waist and not your quads… I felt like a stuffed sausage! So not the look I was going for. Oh well.
All said and done, I left with one tank top, one sweater and one pair of pants. Three out of twelve items is actually pretty good odds for me. All in all, not a bad shopping trip. I much prefer my Lulus where my quads can be free, my butt can get all the way down to my ankles and my lats aren’t squished. Apparently at The Root Cellar, Chad is known as the guy married to “the girl with the legs.” Can you believe that?! I’ll take that over a stupid pair of jeans any day.
