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.
