Like the rest of us, America Ferrera doesn't need a special reason to celebrate her body. But we're definitely not hating that she's showing herself some extra love for a dope ass reason. 

On Saturday (September 17), the "Superstore" star competed in her first triathlon.

^^ Fierce AF, right?

Ferrera was joined by her husband, Ryan Piers Williams. The couple trained for about 20 weeks for the big event.

They participated to raise money "to help save the lives of blood cancer patients," and together they raised over $33,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Following the triathlon, the two cleaned up nicely to attend a pre-Emmys celebration.

She rocked her triathlon numbers because as she said, she "earned that shit."

And on Sunday, they looked hella fly when they attended the Emmys together.

After such an eventful weekend, Ferrera couldn't help but celebrate how her bodacious body powered through.

She reveled in her accomplishments with this inspiring, body positive Instagram message. "I am most grateful to my strong, healthy, able and beautiful body and mind! Both showed up for everything I asked of them this weekend! Feeling blessed and empowered by my health & strength! Do everything that brings you joy because you can!"

And for those wondering, Ferrera finished her triathlon in 3 hours, 42 minutes. Damn, girl!
