Last night I was scrolling through my IG and my 7 year old nephew looked over my shoulder and said, “She looks like a man.” It was a picture of a crossfitter climbing the rope during the “Legless Event” from The Games this year. I asked him are only men suppose to have muscles? He said no. I told him she worked hard to get to where she’s at and taught him not to discriminate what’s outside the norm. I Tivo muscular women are HOT! And truthfully, the only people I’ve come across who have such mindsets about how women shouldn’t look muscular are people who are ignorant about fitness.

My first public transformation picture! It’s been an interesting journey with many ups and downs, but I never gave up. I’ve learned so much about fitness thus far and have gotten stronger mentally and physically. I’m proud of how far I’ve come, but I’m definitely not done yet! Thanks to all my friends who have been so supportive and helpful to me! <3

You LIKE to workout everyday? Must be steroids. That girl is ripped; must be steroids. You don’t train the way I think is the only correct way; you must take steroids… Yesterday I got grilled by 2 guys who don’t lift at all (one plays soccer and one takes spin class). They told me their way is the only way to build muscles. I told them to look at the CrossFit Games athletes. They said, “That’s because they take steroids. I would look like that too if I did roids.” Wow, ignorant much??
