THIS IS SERIOUSLY A SALAD DRESSING COMMERCIAL
WHAT ARE YOU REALLY TRYING TO SELL
Oh man I love salad!
Going through and unfollowing a ton of blogs. Maybe because I’m no longer interested in having the content on my dash, because I find it triggering, because it bores me or because it pisses me off. Or because of some reason I fail to name because it’s nameless.
If I unfollow you, don’t take it personally. Or do. That’s fine too. I don’t hate you or anything. I’m just trying to get myself back to a pure fitness blog and it’s hard to do with so much extra floating around.
That is all.
[A]ll different body types can be healthy and beautiful. That you can be more if you want to. That less isn’t the only acceptable option. That if the endless pursuit of fat loss isn’t making you happy, isn’t improving the quality of your life, isn’t working…you can choose another approach. Choosing another approach isn’t failure. It is simply different, and there is a place in this world for different. We are not all shaped the same.
This is a wonderful read whether you have been struggling or successful. If you’re just starting out, in the middle of your journey or trying to start again. I highly recommend donating a few minutes of your time to read this very awesome article.
Not to mention: holy damn does she look amazing.
“You’re not fat. You have fat.”
I got a lot of messages like that when I called myself fat in a selfie I posted a few days ago. I appreciate the intention, but try as I might I can’t bring myself to care about the message simply because I don’t get it. What’s so wrong with using the adjective fat? Is it so bad that we have to skirt around the truth and structure sentences so we can distance ourselves from it as much as we can?
Fat is just a word. It’s an adjective and a noun. We all have fat but not all of us are fat, which is why saying I have fat is not the same as saying I am fat. I understand that the whole ‘you have fat’ idea is trying to achieve something positive, but I think it’s also contributing to our fixation on the word fat and reinforcing the negativity we have come to associate with it. Fat is not an insult, but in the end it’s up to you if you’ll take it as one. But here’s what I suggest: If you’re fat, be comfortable with saying you’re fat because I bet Dany’s dragons that it’s not the only thing you are. You’re smart, funny, talented, brave, thoughtful, kind, loyal, and a dozen other things that having a fat body won’t change.
P.S. Anyone who thinks fat=ugly clearly hasn’t seen Rebel Wilson in leather.
Done son. I even washed and dried it before I took the pic. ^_^ Now onto Jay’s afghan.
On the cover of Vogue … next to plates of spaghetti.
An interesting read for those who might be interested in the madness.
Ab progress after starting to commit to a healthy lifestyle 1,5 months ago. Proud of how far I’ve come already, excited for what’s to come!
:( I had that for awhile, had to crawl to the bathroom in the night, couldn’t even stand. Rest it up and it does go away. I keep a roller/or can beside my bed, for if I feel any tightness or pain I just roll the tendon on that and it goes away fast.
Great idea. Maybe I’ll pick up one of those little rollers that goes under the desk.
How long did it take before you could walk normal again?
This means no running for at least 6 weeks. The next 6 weeks. The best 6 weeks of the year for running. When everything is blooming and beautiful.
To be honest, I’m in so much pain I can’t even walk. I have to use my tiptoe on my right foot to get around.
Looks like my bicycle will be getting a lot of use this season. My quads are going to be killer.
