DairyFarmersWife's Journal, 28 August 2013

I'm finding my fitness inspiration today. I'm finding that the more physically active I get the more my goal is no longer to be a size 6 or to reach a specific magic number. Do I have of goal of 130 on this site? Yes. In order to do what I want to do this seems like a reasonable weight. BMI says I should weigh somewhere around 115 lbs if I want to be a normal weight. I say.. Pfffft! I don't want to be normal.

I want to be able to do this..

This is Alli McKee. She is a weight lifter and my new inspiration. I would love to be able to lift amazing weights. I would love to be an unexpected power house. I want to feel strong, capable, and confident. Is this some strange mental thing because I've been sucking in the air at the gym?! Maybe. I did my sets of hex bar deadlifts without failing yesterday and the first thing I want to do is add more weight! I'd love to lift my own weight. I'd love to lift hubbies weight! I'd love to do this!

The more I google weight lifting for women the more I get inspired to see how far I can go with this. Do I want to be buff? Yes! Do I want to look so buff it looks unhealthy? No. I just want to be able to run around the farm and not have to for find hubby to say.. Honey.. can you get that for me?? Granted he might like that.. but he isn't always around and calves are heavy buggers!

On a slightly related topic.. I think I figured out why the weightlifting guys walk around with their arms and chests all puffed out. Lifting after 4 days off does that.. the only advantage is when my chest and arms are all puffed out because my chest, back and arm pits hurts.. well my boobs look bigger. They just look funny. Score one for chicks lifting weights!


Love it!! You go lift your weights! I think your inspiration is great!

Go for it DFW!!! I wanted to do exactly that when I was younger. To be a weight lifter and body builder. I wanted to be sleek, and defined, not bulky and musclebound!! I wish this dang body would let me do that now!! You go and do what feels right!! Being and feeling stronger is really a wonderful feeling!!! I am getting there very slowly. I may never be able to be a body builder, but at least I'll be slimmer !! Keep up the great work!!!

I just love your new attitude!! Just don't go getting all bulky, it can be so unattractive ;)

Nah not too bulky. I want to go for the deceptive mini chick that can kick butt. I'm half midget already all I have to do is shrink and pump up.

That's so funny, DFW. I lift heavy and I seem to have lost all resemblance of boobs. You go, girl. Hope you continue to enjoy it. And don't forget to warm up and use your foam roller.

I was so close to being on my way but i can't afford a trainer and am too self concious to go on the weight floor alone with all the guys. You go!

Honestly being on the weight floor with just the guys isn't all that bad. I get glances when I set up something new like going from a hex bar drop lift to inclined pushups but for the most part they do their thing and I do mine. If I stand there and look around when I'm standing next to a bar with 250 lbs they chuckle then help me move the weights off. My biggest problem is I want to lift the 250 lbs! I feel weak next to all the muscle guys. Poop.
