4. Why do you feel the burning desire to grow stronger, to change shape, to prove yourself?
I NEED strength. I LOVE strength training. The strength I actually need is psychological - I am one of those who appears to be mentally strong, but in reality is a quivering mess on the inside. ST makes my body strong - strengthening my body makes my psyche strong. I AM STRENGTH.
Plus it is spring here and I wana look good (aka fit into) my bikini from last summer!!
