Those Moments Where You See How Much You’ve Changed

Today mine was when the thought of “235 pounds isn’t that much” wafted through my brain. It was immediately followed by my brain going “who the hell said that?”

And even though I ended up having to strip 30 pounds off the bar for my second and third round, I’m still damn proud of my first round and more so that my first thought wasn’t fear or hesitation. I went right to “hell yeah I can do that.”

That’s why I think every woman should be encouraged to learn more about weightlifting. True weightlifting. Not with soft, padded ten pound bars and pink dumbbells but with real plates and bars that you earn callouses from. We all need more “hell yeah” moments in our lives.
