I never considered myself a skinny b***h. And I still do not. I consider myself in shape with curves, who can run decently long distances with moderately strong legs. But just the other day, the legit-best-bod-skinniest-chick-ever approached me at the gym just to say that she liked my body (no homo was inserted somewhere in there) and that I inspired her to workout harder.
I mean I have my gym girl crushes – who as soon as they step on the treadmill make me push myself to sweat it off a bit more- but I never thought I was anyone’s gym girl crush!! I always just did me. I aim to be better and stronger every single time, which yes, sometimes meant doing burpees by myself in my corner. But that was it. To workout to be a healthier and happier individual. Not to become a gym girl crush!! I didn’t even think of that as a possibility.
So to all you girls who work hard at the gym, keep at it! Because it’s not always skinny that’s beautiful and you never know who you are encouraging on the other end of the gym… unless its creepy guys… an ode to creepy gym guys is definitely on my to-do list.
Thank you to all of you (very strong + beautiful) Gym Girls,
