This Is What Makes These Women Feel Strong | International Women’s Day

It’s the time of year again where we stop to celebrate the awesome women who inspire strength and support other women as we strive to make the world a better place. This International Women’s Day, the world is pushing for #EachForEqual and what better way to encourage that than to celebrate our strengths? We’re celebrating our own Myprotein women too by asking them to share what makes them feel strong. Read on for support, inspiration, and self-love.

Feeling myself and my 36 week bump in this Luxe Seamless set @myproteinuk [ad] ✨ You all know baby blue is my favourite colour 💙 . . I won’t lie, I haven’t set foot in the gym in a month or two 🤷🏻‍♀️ With my pelvic pain, I couldn’t lift weights because it aggravated it and made it so much more painful 😫 As much as I always wanted to keep going because it was part of my daily routine, I needed to listen to my body! So I opted for low impact things like swimming and yoga which I loved! Recently I haven’t been able to do much isolated exercise because we’ve been so busy with the house and getting things ready for baby but I’ve definitely been getting that cardio in without trying with all the running about I’ve been doing! I’ve been back and forth to @therangeuk, @homebargains, @bm_stores, you name it, I’ve been 7394792 times in the last few weeks 🤣 But keeping active, walking the dog and even just getting out and about is better than sitting all day doing nothing! Do what feels right for you and your body – now is not the time to push it to its limits! ❌ . . Hope you’re all having a great start to the week! 💕

What makes me feel strong is the fact my body carried and grew my beautiful son! I’ve always felt physically strong from weightlifting, but this has given me a whole new sense of the word. THE FEMALE BODY IS AMAZING!

 

Chelsie will fight for what she wants

What makes me strong is knowing the challenges I’ve already faced throughout life and the person I’ve become through overcoming those challenges. There will always be obstacles to tackle, but with a healthy mind and body, you can achieve anything in life. You’ve just got to want it and fight for it.

 

Chlo tackles fears head-on

For me, going into the weights section at the gym after years of being too anxious to go in makes me feel strong and powerful!

 

Sophie is her own cheerleader

It’s not just lifting heavy weights — an important aspect of becoming a strong woman is being mentally strong. Become your own best friend and telling yourself you can do it daily. If it doesn’t go to plan, tomorrow is a new day to start fresh and you should never beat yourself up about it. You got this!!!

‘Steph, whyyy can’t you just look at the camera & take a normal photo like everybody else?’ Well. If you were a ballerina, would you apply right now to compete against the worlds best competitive eaters at an international Hot dog eating contest? Did I just add another level of confusion? Lol. It’s a no brainer. Be yourself, no one else is better qualified. 😌😬 #staynutty Ps. If you’ve managed to swerve my IG plugging so far & are not yet aware.. the link to my new YouTube video is in my bio 😬 I spent a day eating outrageously bizzare foods I’d never tried before. Word on road is that it’s a pretty entertaining video. Personally I don’t like to just take strangers words for these kinds of things. If I were you, I’d watch the video for myself… ENJOYOKBYEEXOXOXOXO #beyou #plughard #poseharder #weirdo #ikeepbashingmyshinagainstmybed

What makes me feel strong is my minds inability to give up. When my body feels it physically can’t do something my mind overrides this. I smash it. This, in turn, reinforces my belief that whatever it is I want to do, I am fully capable of achieving. This is what strength means to me.

 

Annie knows mental strength takes time and training too

It can take time to become physically strong and with your mental health, it’s the same. By going to the gym, surrounding myself with positive people, and doing yoga this has helped me become so strong mentally and physically. I can take my time to think about myself and build self-confidence. It isn’t always about what you look like physically but how this can make you a stronger you within.

 

Bella takes control of her own happiness

I take control of my life without relying on anyone or anything else. I ensure there is balance in my life by incorporating all of the things I love into my week. When I strike this balance, I feel physically & mentally powerful and like I could conquer and achieve anything.

 

Amelia banishes all self-doubt

I feel strong when I’ve accomplished something after doubting myself. Be it lifting 5kg more on the squat rack, going to an event and fighting my social anxiety, or even allowing myself to cry when I need too. My sense of strength comes from all domains of life. I am strong when I cry and I am strong if I believe in myself.

GYM ANXIETY . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Something that E V E R Y O N E has experienced! I get so many messages from girls terrified of entering the weights section at the gym. I know how intimidating it can be so here’s some tips to get you feeling more comfortable: . 📌Have a plan of action: Write down what you want to do beforehand/ get a coach/ follow a training programme: that way you’re not gonna be wondering around feeling lost and confused with what to do . 📌Stick to the basics: Stay away from the weird + wacky routine you saw on insta & do the movements that will get you the biggest bang for ya buck!! squats, deadlifts, rows, presses, pulldowns etc. if you don’t have the money for a PT to show u these, watch some YouTube videos! .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📌Don’t go at peak times when starting out: try to go when it’s a bit quieter, save yourself the anxiety n frustration of all the squat racks being taken and the gym being crowded with experienced lifters . 📌Put your headphones on🎧: get in the zone, only worry about yourself & listen to your fav tunes💆🏼‍♀️ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📌Focus on perfecting your form before anything: I LOVE it when I see people at the gym doing their thing with perfect technique not caring what anyone else is doing. If you feel embarrassed that you can’t add any weight to the bar yet (u shouldnt!!), it really doesn’t matter! Everyone starts somewhere. Plus ego lifts aren’t cool😎 .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📌Realise that no one actually cares about what you’re doing: at the end of the day, we’re all there for the same reason, to better ourselves physically and mentally!!! I PROMISE you that the big muscly guy is too busy looking at himself in the mirror in awe at his ginorrrrrmous pump🙃 Have some confidence, keep to yourself n go chase those gains👏🏻 . ALSOOOO !! wanna announce that i am now working with @myproteinUK 🤩 I have been buying from them since day 1 and couldn’t be more proud to represent them! SO excited for all the fun and exciting events I have lined up with them for this year🙊👏🏻 My discount code is EMMAFIT which currently gets you 37% off!!! I’m wearing their new zebra seamless print which was released today🦓 My link to shop is in my bio😚💘

One of the things that makes me feel strong is helping other women to feel good about themselves. I love empowering females to become their best self — whether that’s physically or mentally.
