I no longer had to schedule my workouts around someone’s else’s schedule, and if I wanted to hang around the gym longer, no one is waiting for me at home making me feel bad about doing so.I can meal prep and plan for one and leftovers last for days.
Female weightlifters are in the public eye more than ever before.Take Commonwealth Gold Medal winner Zoe Smith who represented GB in the 2012 Olympics.I’ve had a lot of guy friends, but even in high school, I never had a real boyfriend.” But are they…“How many of the speed dating guys emailed you so far? If you remember I briefly mentioned on the blog that I went speed dating a couple of weeks ago. Out of the group of 12 diverse single men, I was mutually matched up with two (they picked me and I picked them), and six other men who I did not choose provided their emails to me in case I changed my mind and decided to contact them first.Half of the time I was there, I was bummed about missing out on Deadlift Day, and as much as I tried not to bring up Crossfit in the six-minute time limit I had with each guy, it subconsciously came spewing out of my mouth just about every time; I silently scoffed at the majority that never heard of Crossfit, and wrinkled my nose at the ones that heard of it but had no desire to do it. “None, Mom.” She replied, “They must have gone home and Googled “Crossfit” and decided you were too intimidating for them.” Let me preface the rest of this by saying I am completely comfortable being single.
In fact, becoming single was the best things that could have happened when it comes to my dedication to Crossfit.Conversation is a lot more comfortable and there’s a back-and-forth quality that I think fits me better.On the flip side, since we’re such close friends, they don’t see me as a woman.And although there are sadly no more recent statistics than that, there can be little doubt that women and weights are experiencing something of a boom.Part of it is due to the Sport England #This Girl Can campaign which aims to encourage girls into sport using realistic portrayals of women sweating, groaning and fighting their way through satisfying exercises.Could an average man understand that, and accept that this is what I choose to do with my time?
