Bulky and bossy.  

Bossy and bulky.  

I have been called both.  

Mainly by my husband and this was before I started CrossFit.  I just think CrossFit has enhanced these characteristics in me.  I say enhanced because these are NOT bad words.  

Growing up I was SKINNY.  My dear friend Tommy McNeal referred to me as skinny legs since kindergarten.  Jerk.  I shot up 6 inches one summer and my feet grew 4 sizes.  To say I was awkward would be on point.  

I hated it.  

I drank protein drinks, went on gain weight diets and nothing helped me and my skinny legs.  It wasn't until I had my boys did I finally start gaining weight.  Now I can't seem to stop.  Thanks kids.

I have always thought muscle was sexy.  Not body builder muscle but nice defined, strong muscle.

 It's sexy because confidence comes with strong muscle and confidence is sexy as fuck.

Until I found CrossFit I was wandering around the gym using the circuit machines, running and basically not knowing what I was doing.  When I found CrossFit no one told me that CrossFit makes you bulky because when I found CrossFit, no one knew what CrossFit was.  I just knew it made me feel my muscles I could feel them growing and getting stronger and I liked it.

People can put a negative spin on rainbows and unicorns if you let them.  If you consider strong muscles and mind negative than CrossFit is not for you.
