I really love dinosaurs. Which makes Drumheller, AB about the most perfect weekend road trip there is.

So I made it to the Big Apple and it was glorious! I got to hangout next to super famous monuments, walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, party at the Waldorf, meet my editor, celebrate my friend's birthday in Greenwich Village, and meet so many AMAZING women at the RWA15 conference. I also got food poisoning. Checks and balances, people. It's all about checks and balances.
Today I'm kicking it like an old-school Britney song and feeling like a boss.
I PB'd in snatch, clean & jerk, back squat and front squat during my Olympic Lifting session this week! <insert raunchy jokes about the off-colour nature of weightlifting terms here>
Basically, I'm feeling strong today, and I have to be honest, it feels pretty damn good.
I think sometimes, as women, we don't celebrate our strength enough. And I don't just mean lifting heavy things. So today, I urge you to pat yourself on the back for whatever you've done lately that proves you're strong and awesome. Take a moment to celebrate your mental or physical prowess. Strength shows itself in a lot of different ways--enduring, overcoming, persevering and being a little bit better than you were yesterday.
And I'd love to hear what makes you strong and proud in the comments, so I can celebrate with you.
