Just when I thought I was setting a good example for my children with my bodybuilding training the tables turned on me.
My 15 y/o daughter informed me while I was cooking dinner tonight that she wanted to go on a strict diet. She isn’t overweight at all; she is healthy, rosy cheeked and very opinionated. She told me that there were parts of her body that she didn’t like ..she said ” I want my tummy to be concave mom. I want my skin to be perfectly clear so that means no fat or sugar in my diet.” I told her that restricting her diet would lead to a lifetime of an unhealthy relationship with food.. that it would be best to just moderate fat and sugar and workout some more..but she had been watching YouTube ..she wanted instant results.. I felt myself becoming very sad and emotional at the fact that she had said there were parts of herself that she didn’t like..but I felt she needed some space to eat her dinner and then be alone in her room for a while..and I needed to get my emotions under control.. it was then that I approached her alone in her room..
I sat on the end of her bed and said to her ” I want you to know that you are an amazing young woman. I brag about you all the time to the ladies at the gym. I brag about how driven you are. I brag about your 4.0 and your honors courses.. I brag about how healthy and rebellious you are in the right ways. You are a strong minded, head strong girl with leadership qualities..it takes a very strong girl to put up with a very strong mother and forge her own way and identity. I want you to love yourself flaws and all.. I am so proud of you as a person and I am so blessed to have you as my first born daughter.” we both started to tear up..and she said ” Mom you don’t have to say this.” and I said ” I really want you to hear me and to take this into your heart.. outward beauty is nothing without inward beauty..outward beauty fades but a strong mind and spirit only get stronger.. you may not see yourself as Hollywood beautiful but you are the whole package of beauty.. the world needs more girls and women like you in the world.” and then I kissed her as she sorta, kinda pretended to push me away.
I then I told her from the end of her bed ” I am doing the bodybuilding to get my mind off of not being able to get through people’s ignorant thick heads about the sexual repression and inequalities towards women.. it’s so they don’t drive me crazy. I see it as a sport and a spiritual practice on sobriety.. not a beauty contest; although if I do compete; it is a beauty contest to many of the other’s competing..and to them it maybe only superficial. To me it is to make me more mentally sharp..spiritually balanced and centered.. I don’t want you to think that I see outer beauty as a means of myself worth and I don’t want you to see me as setting an example of that for you.” and then I took a breath between tears of love and adoration for my daughter.. ” The most beautiful people truly love themselves and that is how they can love others..that is the most important thing you need to do in your life..and a well cultivated brain is ultra beautiful.. there are so many outwardly beautiful people that do nothing for humanity but stand as ornaments ..the most important thing you can do with your life is to do something with your life that will help humanity evolve.. it will be a girl like you that will change the world.”
And with that I gave my daughter another hug and went into my own room to wipe away my proud mommy tears.
This is for all the men that don’t do it..but think they can pick apart women’s bodies that do .. do it!.. Just shut the fuck up!
Unless you are willing to suit up and chalk up.. lift some heavy shit up.. know what the fuck real heavy metal is; just shut the fuck up or.. JUST DO IT!
If your diet consists of pub food, cigarettes and booze.. shut the fuck up.. butt out.. turn the shot class upside down..push your flabby ass away from the table.. JUST DO IT!
You don’t get to have an opinion on if whether or not a woman’s muscles are too big or too small.. if your not willing to work yours as well.. if you are too lazy to get your fat ass up off the couch or the pub stool.. you need to top running your fucking mouth.
Your just pissed because we are working circles around you.. making you look bad to you..and you know you don’t stand a fucking chance with a woman who treats herself and her body like the temple it is..because she knows she is GODDESS..and you treat your body like a fucking garbage can.. and so you attempt to break her down to your level of crap..with your trash talking bullshit.. mouth that runs faster than you can walk.. let alone run.. you can’t run.. you can’t do shit so you need to try to make a woman that lifts feel like shit..because you feel like shit.. you know you are not at her speed.. you can’t keep the fuck up.. calling them bitches because you’r a little bitch boy .. JUST DO IT and get off your high horse .. get on the track.. get set up to the rack and squat.. JUST DO IT or shut the fuck up!
You bitch talk about the woman who has had children; that her tummy isn’t toned or six packed while she has birthed .. she has wept..she sweats..she lifts and she grinds.. she has character behind her lines.. but you are flabby because your lazy.. your gut is from beer and potato ships..and you think you can be critical about how imperfect you think she is.. about her strength..her motherhood.. her endurance and tenacity .. while you; little bitch boy got your huge gut from hitting the fridge..not from giving birth to wonderful kids.. but even still she is way more than you could ever hope to become.. and that is why you need to run her down.. while she laps your ass again and again.. at the track were you are never found.. she leaves you slammed down on the iron..she purges you in the sweat she leaves splattered on the floor..and you think you have the right to be a hypocrite.. an idiot.. take a good look in the mirror.. shut your mouth.. or JUST DO IT!
DO YOU EVEN LIFT.. past the greasy food you put up to your evil lips? Ya we know you don’t.. GIRLS WHO LIFT.. we know you don’t!.. But you look at us like a KFC value meal.. lips, hips and tits.. why don’t you just keep stuffing it in your greasy face; shut the fuck up or JUST DO IT!
You bastards are our motivation.. we are Angel and Devils.. GODDESSES OF THE GYM.. you will find the devil in her eyes if you cross that fucking line.. don’t you dare stare at her like she is meat for you to eat.. or she will knock you off your fucking feet..
Your talk is cheap.. lets see you move those feet and shift your ass… JUST DO IT or move it the fuck out of our way our reps are our play.
