This morning

This tall, blonde, tanned, slim and very nicely built woman told me she was using me as motivation because yesterday when we were bench pressing, I was able to go up to a higher weight then she was.

She went on to say that she's been a chronic exerciser (of the GoodLife kind) for years (and she has the body to prove it) but since joining crossfit, she's been challenged to a degree she never has before.

And she said she even went to work and told her colleagues that she worked out with a girl who could bench press more than her - she said it was real motivation and told me how strong I was.

Someone using ME as motivation??  I would have never thought it.

I need to remember that everyone doesn't think what I assume they are thinking - that I am strong, and that I am pushing myself further and further every day.

I am not fishing for compliments here - I am not trying to be pompous - I am truly shocked that someone - who looks like her - would be using someone like ME as motivation.

2 people had this to say:

You are so very very inspiring! I get really motivated when I see women lifting heavy or doing great things at the gym...I love that you were that motivation for someone today :)

PS. had a wee giggle at the GOODLIFE comment :) lol
