|Oreo Truffle Heaven|
While I make a point to not really chat at the gym, I made a small exception this week, and I didn't mind it too much. I was in the weight room, the only female in a room of grunting men attempting to lift weights much too heavy for them, when another woman came in and tapped me on the shoulder. She said "thank you for being in here!" We went on to chat for a bit, and I learned she had recently lost 50lbs before tearing her rotator cuff. She was working to rehab it following surgery but still felt uncomfortable as the only woman in the weight room.
It's disappointing and a little sad that women don't always feel comfortable in every area of a gym when the benefits of strength training for anyone, women and men alike, are countless. Come pump some iron with me ladies!
