I personally know a lot of skinny strong women.  I have nothing against them.  They don’t have it easy and I’m not saying they don’t represent strong.  They work hard, are dedicated, and probably feel the same way about their bodies as you do.  In my world, the people that inhabit it celebrate getting and being strong. This seems to go against the world that idolizes shrinking oneself to the body size of negative 0 (aka skinny).

You don’t have to look very far to know what I’m talking about.  Every message proclaiming it’s about being strong is an endless parade of pictures of women with motivational sayings about being strong, determination, and “living your best life” usually plastered on a chick who is either a fitness model or part of the 1% of females that possess THAT body type.

In my world, strong is all about attitude, achievement, health and sharing it. 

I know and surround myself daily with women that embody what it means to be strong.  They are mothers who come in with little or no sleep that push to their capacities every day.  They are tomboys and athletes exceeding goals and expectations every day.  They are your girlfriends and wives who train their hearts out redefining what it means to be strong and beautiful in a world where ripped abs and body proportions reign supreme.  Here’s to every kick ass one of you!
