“A strong body makes the mind strong.” – Thomas Jefferson
The body is a collection of many things, including organs, glands and blood, but most of us know it as that framework of fat and musculature that never seems to measure up to society’s expectations of us. And yet our body is also that most critical of things – the vehicle in which we navigate through the world. Ideal weight can manifest as curvy or lean, depending on our genetics and personal preference – but a Strong Woman understands it’s only partly about looks. Ultimately, there’s something thrilling about hiking a mountain, easily lifting a plump toddler, or tossing the groceries into the car. Being physically strong makes us mentally strong, and reminds us that we can do anything.
