Fitness Humor – More On The Sports Bra

I think I have this thought several times a week.

No. No… ย I definitely do. ย

Who needs bands when you can struggle (it’s real!) with your fitness apparel!?

Martial Arts Humor – The Jiu-Jitsu Man Bun, By Tyson Gay

Love that this super black belt, Tyson Gay, posted how you keep your long locks from getting totally yanked to oblivion on the mats! ย (I have, myself, heard the telltale *RIP!* only to see my strands – MANY – laying there helplessly!)

That said, his hair is incredibly fine, so if yours is fuller…it may not stay so nicely! ย

Fortunately it didn’t get yanked when this was taken! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve tried all sorts of bun permutations. ย They’ve all come out, or needed to be redone. ย Still, that’s kind of par for the course when you Jiu-Jitsu and have layered hair… ย

Ladies Who Lift

I know there are a lot of ladies out there who are afraid to lift – not only heavy, but at all. ย 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. ย It isn’t for everyone at all, nor does it have to be. ย Some of them are tough chicks, make no mistake… ย But there are a lot of usย women. ย We love being active, but we also LOVE beingย women. ย 

While weย aren’t necessarily “girly girl” or frilly,ย there is never ANY question that we are feminine – in look, attitude, or anything else. ย We aren’t lumbering oafs, and we do dress up nicely! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I took this photo the other day while working on my “guns” (biceps! ๐Ÿ™‚ ) 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. ย

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 TOTALLYย okay to don pastel pink nails and kill it on the leg press!
