So I did a thing.
Kind of a crazy thing. A thing I didn’t think I would even consider.
But I’ve got crazy friends & a desire to push myself. Combine the 2 and you’ve got me signing up for the Femme Royale Fun Competition. Fun, of course, being the key word here.
What is it?
The Femme Royale Movement – (From the website)
AN EXPRESSION, A WAY OF LIFE FOR THE WOMEN OF OUR GENERATION.
STRIVING TO LIVE A STRONGER MORE PASSIONATE LIFE.
NOT ACCEPTING DEFEAT.
OWNING WHO THEY ARE AND WHAT THEY WANT TO BECOME.
POWERFUL WOMEN WHO WANT TO CHANGE THE WORLD.
Their purpose is to create a “healthy outlet for women to overcome their fears and doubts…Encouraging, empowering women to
push their physical and mental limits…Our events are about every athlete competing, not just the elite. We want you to do your best, and leave feeling empowered to take on anything the world throws your way.” Yes, that sounds awesome! Totally something that would inspire me. It fits right into my own approach to life & choosing to live my best life.
But what about the competition?
This is an all women, team competition. There are three levels. My girlfriend and I are doing the fun competition, the entry level. It’s a great option to not only push our fitness levels but to introduce us to the world of competition. But I’m not going in blind – the “fun” level is hard. It will push me and it will likely make me cry.
Let’s Do This
As like most things, I’m documenting this here on the blog. I would love it if you’d follow along as I train, both mind & body. I’ll make mistakes along the way but I’m excited to see how I change too.
Our team is Pineapple Strong – for 2 very sweet women who work hard to be strong & love to lift.
