Is liking manly muscles an AWALT thing? My wife says she doesn't but after starting to lift again last week (I'm really only one week into the red pill process) it brought back memories of my past attempts to use weight lifting to get into shape. As I gained some tone, definition and size I remember my wife would touch my arms during sex (and other times!) and really seemed to enjoy biceps and triceps. She didn't admit to liking them verbally but her physical reaction to them was fucking obvious. And, in lovely beta fashion I completely ignored that.
That said, I realize that lifting is important for this process not because it makes a man more attractive (SMV) but because it's tangible work that benefits only the person lifting. I lift for myself, no one else. Increased SMV is a valuable side benefit but not the most important reason for lifting.
Am I right in thinking this? I'm trying really hard to re-frame myself and why I'm doing these things. It's hard to get out of the mindset of "Do this - get that (from her)" and get instead into the mindset of "Do this for me and me alone."
