I feel as though this is a first encounter, and it is awkward like most first encounters that I have. I feel weird explaining everything that I like and why I am starting this blog so I am going to go ahead and start my first post with a little story. Which is what I usually do upon meeting new people.
(But first, an awkward photo of me drinking my favourite drink from Sbux)
Last Wednesday I went to the gym after work like I usually do and was lifting weights. I was doing some sort of exercise with a barbell and when I was finished using it I walked over to the rack to put it back. When I got there I realized that the only spot that was left on the rack was quite high…so I stood there, contemplating my ability to lift the barbell over my head to rerack it. As I was standing there, staring at the rack, a man came up to me, took my weight from me, and put it on the rack. This was very nice of him…until he looked at me and said, “This is heavy for you.” Now, some might not think anything of this comment, but it sure chapped my khakis. So I turned to him, looked him in the eye and said, “No, I am strong. Thank you.”
And I continued on with my workout.
I am not strong for a girl. I am just strong. And so are you 🙂
