Love this saying. I wish I had made this one up myself. I see people, especially women hiding behind what they think everyone else wants to see. The lucky few may get a glimpse in to who that person really is.
This morning I was the woman laying in the gym floor rolling on a foam roller shortly after doing five sets of heavy dead-lifts. I got stared at while doing the lifts. I don’t care. That is who I am. By today’s standards seeing a woman dead-lift isn’t common place. It’s weird. AND. I. LOVE. IT.
Want big biceps? Secretly behind closed doors flexing your guns to see if they’ve grown? Show ’em. Be proud of ’em. You bet I want nice bulky biceps and shapely shoulders. Side effect? I can paddle a mean kayak when I want to. I can also whip up a good omelet with those same guns.
I have a paddle board and a kayak to haul up a steep lot when I’m finished playing on the water. Every single weekend when I’m doing that hauling I thank my lucky stars that I made the decision to shed 168# and get fit.
Some say I’m getting too old for all that. Pfffhhhttt, I’ll never be too old. The day I get too old will be the day I stop having fun. Living this life today is the only choice we have, I’m taking full advantage of it by keeping myself in great shape.
If you’ve got pounds to lose, don’t waste another day trying. Get busy DOING. Hold yourself accountable. You are the ultimate keeper of your success! DO. IT.
