Is it time for me to break in my new shoes?

Do you see much tension when she talks about how overweight or out of shape she is? You certainly have not, because that’s not the kind of conversation that you would have with your daughter if she were struggling with body image-related issues. If anything, you are probably encouraging her to take care of herself by saying nice things to her and buying her an ice cream cone or something. Most likely, your conversation is focused on what bringing good friends home from school will be like instead of talking about whether or not today might be a good day for losing weight. But let’s face it: She is bigger than average—not fat. So, unless there has been some really big change in scholarship delay (which almost never happens), don’t get too involved in thinking about how much better your daughter would look if she lost some pounds and toned up a little bit. And don’t ask for advice; we family members know best! Sometimes we think we know best even when we don’t (hence why most parents who say they want their children to lose weight actually do nothing at all). Your role as a family member is fairly simple: To love and support them no matter what! It may sound kind of obvious, but
Why Are So Many Crossfit Benchmark Workouts Named After Women?
A couple of weeks ago, some guy going by the moniker “Testosterone” posted a video on YouTube called “Why Are So Many Crossfit Benchmark Workouts Named After Women?” In case you were unaware, Testosterone is a self-described “personal anecdotal science teacher at a high school for gifted children.” He also happens to be one of CrossFit’s biggest fans, and his Youtube channel has nearly 350,000 subscribers. I don’t get it either. So if someone wants to lend us an ear or two on this topic… Anyway… Earlier today at approximately 12:00 p.m., the world was introduced to Mr. Testosterone over a video entitled “Why Are So Many Crossfit Benchmark Workouts Named After Women? Presented By The Angry Lesbian Instead Of Strongest Man On Planet Earth.” If you haven’t seen it yet, click here and watch away! (Note: You can also see it embedded in our article!) We strongly suggest you take the rest of this article with a grain of salt as well; humor is subjective and not everyone will share your sense of humor! (Okay fine… maybe nerds like me might still share your sense of humor.)
