Why Having Muscles (& showing them off) Makes You Special

June 21st, 2010 · 2 Comments

Ladies- or those of you who work out, it has come to my attention recently, that we Who Have Muscles are NOT the norm. This subject hit my square in the eye after having just visited a very large and popular day spa for men and women. It’s sad, really. There are just not that many people who are fit or whom even seemed to care at how big they are. Yikes. How many of you read the statistics about the increasing numbers of obesity, heart disease and diseases that are caused by diet? I don’t need to go in to the statistics here, but, you know the truth. Go to any large public place and watch.

When you go out in public showing off your muscles with a tank top or a sleeveless dress, you are showing the world that You care how you look. You are taking the time to work at it and be proud of it. When people admire your muscles, say, “thank you” and tell them that you work really hard at getting them that way!  You are making that lifelong commitment to your health and hopefully enjoying it!

Keep at it and encourage others to do the same.  One a side note, it’s taken me six months of very hard work to get my arms the way they are now and  I love how it looks.  I love knowing how much weight I can lift.  I love the feeling of being really strong!  It’s empowering and confidence building for women and me especially!

Now, go lift something heavy!

    It is quite comforting to see that it is ok to be cut, slim and healthy. Having an athlete and strong body can sometimes be intimidating to others, thus putting us in an awkward position with all our peers. Although we are somehow admired, we feel kind of out of context and norm. Thank you Rachel for letting us feel that it is the normal thing to feel strong and healthy, and by that we are what other women should strive to be.

    I as well think it’s awesome to feel excited and good about the way your body looks, feels, and performs. It’s not easy to dedicate yourself to go to the gym, work hard, and eat right. Kudos to all the moms who do this!
