I know there are a lot of ladies out there who are afraid to lift – not only heavy, but at all. I’ve spoken on the topic before, but I do always like to remind. . .
I know many strong women – athletic, workhorse types, who aren’t afraid to get on the mat, crush, and sweat it out. It isn’t for everyone at all, nor does it have to be. Some of them are tough chicks, make no mistake… But there are a lot of us women. We love being active, but we also LOVE being women.
While we aren’t necessarily “girly girl” or frilly, there is never ANY question that we are feminine – in look, attitude, or anything else. We aren’t lumbering oafs, and we do dress up nicely! 😉
I took this photo the other day while working on my “guns” (biceps! 🙂 ) I love feeling physically strong, and pushing myself to the limit… But I ALSO love that I can sport my sparkles – to the gym, the dojo, and on the mats and BJJ.
So the point is…
Strong IS beautiful. . .
You don’t have to sacrifice your femininity by any stretch, or worry that others perceive you that way.
And. . .it is TOTALLY okay to don pastel pink nails and kill it on the leg press!
