There are a few things that women have to deal with that guys get away with, and some that we share. We kind of have this unwritten pact not to talk about the things that I’m about to talk about, but I just couldn’t resist anymore.
There are various levels of fit girls. You have the Crossfit babes, girls who lift, cardio queens and everyone in between. As a huge supporter of women in any category, I’m a big fan of any way you’re keeping yourself fit and healthy. As someone who has been in this fitness game for a little while now, I’d like to think that I’ve had my fair share of blunders and embarrassing moments.
“It’s that time of the month”
Is there anything more terrifying than knowing you have to squat or do leg press when your cycle hits? I’ve literally hyperventilated in the bathrooms before leg day when I know that there is a fine line between poised and the Exorcism of Emily Rose going on in my nethers. I’m also 100% certain that I’m not the only one.
Sweating in weird places
Seriously, you won’t believe where you start to sweat when you really get into a workout. Okay, wait… it’s possible that you do when you’re a fit girl.
The Protein Farts!
Okay, guys can relate to this too. There has to be something terrifying about what slips out of your butt when your diet is high protein. It’s gross and unavoidable.
The Sausage Fest
Being on the gym floor comes with a few challenges for a fit girl. Often you’re either hit on, scoffed by some guys or it’s assumed you’re lost. None of the above apply, dudes.
Clean Eating Dilemma
I am all about eating clean, eating often and eating well, but you always seem to come across people who assume we’re not eating anything. You won’t believe how often I’m told (with sympathy) about the carb filled meals people are eating like it’s a prison sentence for me. It’s not, I don’t mind not having refined crap, thanks.
There you go! My little list of pesky fit girl problems. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this little list, so pop a comment below!
Until next time.
