In this episode of the Sweatpants Chronicles we’re talking about self care – what it is, why it’s so important and why it isn’t actually SELFISH. We have found that women (us included!) have a really hard time doing anything for themselves without feeling selfish. So during this episode we really question that idea and whether self care can actually be in the interest of everyone around you.
Cassidy: Honestly this week I’ve been obsessed with figuring out the whole Aziz Ansari thing and looking at consent and women’s rights and saying no. There are so many ins and outs in this situation! There is a big difference in where our society was six months ago, a year ago, 25 years ago, and where it is today. So it’s hard to know how we get to that balance where everybody is safe and ok. We’ll have to do a more in depth conversation some time on consent and saying no and how hard it really is to say no in tough situations.
Tristi: My obsession this week is a little less serious than Cass’ 😉 I’ve been obsessed with burpees! Dave Castro, who is the director of the Crossfit Games, changed the games standard for burpees just last week. You can no longer step down and up – you have to jump down and up. I already stink at burpees when I can step up and step back so this is going to be bad for me.
