    WoW - those cross fit girls look fabulous! I am seriously jell....although I have worked out at the gym I find it terribly boring, I do rock climb which helps tone my upper torso and I cycle which helps tone my lower torso, however I doubt I will ever look like those girls. Equally so as I get older, I have noticed that my shape is changing and where my body deposits fat is changing also, so to be lean I start to show bones in my face and upper chest which is seriously unattractive, I end up looking like Madonna.

    I would like to see articles that focus on the woman over 40 and how she can maintain a fabulous look without the Skelator similies

    That's a sweet but somewhat naive notion.

    When I was 15-25... I WAS one of those super fit and very muscular girls. I WORKED hard physically.
    Now I'm near 40 and have both a rare degenerative nerve disease (diagnosed at 25) AND an even more rare condition that causes very high intracranial pressure that creates all sorts of CRAZY problems... such as literally not being able to stand or speak if I over use my diaphragm (that increases the pressure inside my skull).
    I could set goals and plan to "do" from here to eternity... I'm not going to magically be 20 and healthy again.

    That's just me... but there are also people who cannot afford crossfit on their income, cannot spend the hours necessary to rebuild their bodies to that level in the gym due to other obligations (husbands,children, jobs, ect.) to meet in addition to "gym time", and/or have other less extreme mobility limitations that prevent that level of intense workout and fitness.

    No matter how you slice it, a tomato is a tomato. It's not going to do ME any good to feel bad about myself because I can't be just lie those young, beautiful, strong bodied girls anymore. I accept that so that I CAN be happy with who I am now and, and be happy with the improvements that I can make in my life and health.

    Great article. I've lost count as to how many times I've heard women say:

    "BUT I DON'T WANNA GET BULKY!!!"

    It's impossible unless yer on the ROIDS!!!

    Society/marketing gurus do not help.

    It's been tweeted!!!

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.
