Redefining 'Sexy'

I've been spending some time at the gym lately.

It's been a while, so it's nice to feel my body in motion and to work up a sweat with a goal of pushing myself as far as I can go.

It's had me thinking though...what's sexy?

While men and women pump on elliptical machines, run on treadmills, climb up stair masters, lift weights, jump rope, and sweat through classes...they are bombarded by 'People' magazines filled with models, flat screens dawning celebrities and folks to the left and right of them in "work out" attire.

I imagine that most are there for health purposes, others need to a stress release and some are there for entirely different reasons.

I used to think that 'sexy' had everything to do with the way I looked and felt in my I connected with the one I love.  Now, I'm finding all kinds of new connections to the word.

After the last few workouts, my new definition of 'sexy' is strength...determination...consistency...grit.

Tenacity is sexy.  Plain and simple.  And that's not just about how much time you spend at the gym.
