The other day someone made a comment about my appearance and muscle tone. I don’t remember her exact words, but it was something to the effect of “I would never want to have muscle like you. You have too much muscle.”
It really saddens me that women have such a negative perspective on muscle. I understand that I’m a raging feminist and I am all for girl power, and not all women feel like that. But girl power aside, having a strong muscular system is HEALTHY. As you get older, you run the risk of less injuries, less falls, and less broken bones. Your metabolism will stay elevated, and you can afford to eat a few more calories in the day. You can carry all of your grocery bags in the door at once, instead of making 3 trips back and forth to the car. And not to mention what it will do for your physical fitness level and your self esteem.
There is a new wave of physically fit women taking over the world! And the more I have exposed myself to this world, the more I am so proud of my strong body.
