During a conversation with my friend the other day, the topic of hands came up (not sure how that happened). Anyhow, he said that if a woman has soft hands, that’s extremely attractive. I disagreed. If someone’s hands aren’t soft doesn’t mean they’re not attractive.
Mid-conversation, as I usually do, I rubbed my hands together and heard a noise. It was like when you rub sand paper on wood, but not as loud.
Looking down, I realized my hands created that noise. Apparently I forgot to lotion, and not only were my hands dissatisfied, but so were my callouses.
I always noticed them on my brother’s hands, but never understood how he got them.
Then I started lifting.
I did notice them a long time ago, but this was when they were just raised a little. Now, the skin surrounding them is a little yellow and they feel…good?
At first they bothered me, but now I must admit them make me feel pretty badass.
Whenever I finish with my dead-lifts, my callouses are even more noticeable and I just feel like:
I appreciate them because it’s a reminder of how hard I’ve been working. I could wear gloves, but then I wouldn’t have my battle scars.
So my hands may not be smooth, but it’s fine, because my lifting makes up for it.
Until next time,
