Time to get healthy.
I actually like a couple of these, and I can see some of you liking specific ones as well.
these look like something good to switch it up with
but what if i do all of them then i will be THE ULTIMATE SUPERHERO.
I stopped going to starbucks once they took away the free soy for gold members which was like… a year ago? Anyway. You should do your research on which drinks you prefer. Most of Starbucks drinks have lots of sugar. And I mean lots. The syrups they put in (hazelnut, vanilla, etc) are pure sugar. If you are fine with plain coffee, then they would probably be fine, but in my experience you don’t go to starbucks for their coffee hahaha. Frapps and other concoctions are their money makers, which consist of sugar sugar sugar. So I would go onto the starbucks website and look up for drink of choice’s nutrition facts. You could be drinking one of the few drinks that aren’t so bad for you, but chances are you’re not. Try to figure out ways to substitute items in your drink to make it healthier, but I personally would just stick to at home coffee. You know exactly whats in that shizz :)
Well swimming and running are two completely different forms of cardio and affect your body in two different ways. For example, I’m a cyclist. I can ride for hours. Get me in the pool and I’m dead in five minutes. PHEW! I’ve also had a hard time getting into running. Since it’s a new form that your body must learn, it’s almost like starting from scratch. Almost. Just start slow and work up from there. There are a bunch of great couch to 5Ks that you can start with. Once you finish those programs, graduate up to 10Ks then half marathons and so on and so forth. There are so many programs to follow to get into long distance running. I have a link to find one that works for you on my page (“running programs” under “tips”) and I also personally love the C25K app. They have more for once you finish the first C25K app. However I think those aren’t free anymore once you finish the first one….
Good luck love and RUN ON!
I’m slightly confused…. Not sure I understand the question….. Are you looking for rare healthy foods to add to your diet or regular healthy foods that most people just tent to avoid?
Idk of any rare foods…. maybe because they’re rare hahahah :P but a lot of foods that are really good for you that people either avoid or just don’t think to eat are (Also, idk how healthy you eat right now. You may already be eating these, but the average person doesn’t typically eat these) brussels sprouts, leek, kale, spinach, broccoli, eggplant, bell peppers, cabbage, all leafy greens, asparagus, bok choy, chives, zuchinni, beet greens, etc.
If any one else has any idea of great veggies that I may have left out, feel free to let this lovely anon know :)
Whether you’re running a marathon or mile, practicing yoga or Pilates, remember to thank your body. It will be with you your entire life. It carries you through whatever you do. Feel the burn, smile at the challenge and thank your body.
The “What I Am” Project-
People are not their insecurities. They are not their stereotypes. They are not their actions, or their beliefs. They aren’t even their mistakes. Who they are, who YOU are, is based solely on who you choose to be. It is not any of those things that define you. How others see and treat you do not define you. The only one who that can do so is you. Being insecure is unfortunately part of life; everyone experiences them. So embrace them! Don’t let them hold you back, SHOUT them from the heavens, and prove to the world that insecure or not YOU ARE YOU!
Good job, nice suits AND tattoos please?

Handstands 101! There are many ways to get into a handstand; but this is one of the most basic, easily accessible ways. Begin in Downward-Facing Dog. Step one foot in about half way, and lean forward until you have your shoulders stacked right above your wrists. Spread your fingers wide, and keep a very very slight outward rotation of the wrists (you want the index finger to point forward). Now lift the back leg up as high as you comfortably can, and keep it straight. Firm the upper arms - hug the bicep to the bone and draw the triceps towards the ribcage. Relax the shoulder blades down the back and widen the space between the collar bones. Lower ribs pull in towards to pubic bone, and find a slight engagement of the core. Keep the upper arms firm and the gaze between your index fingers as you bend the standing leg deeply. When you kick up, you want to use the strength of the bent knee (the leg still on the floor), so without swinging or lunging the leg that’s up in the air (that’s a thunderbolt leg!). Begin with tiny little kicks, just focusing on getting the standing foot off the floor and inch or so (you can of course practice this in front off a wall until you feel comfortable to try it in the middle of the room), drawing the heel in towards the sit bone with every kick. Think hips over shoulders, and little by little work your way towards catching the hand balance with the one knee hugging in towards the chest. Once you catch it, extend the leg up towards the sky and align the body with the ankles over the hips, hips over the shoulders and shoulders over the wrists. Think bellybutton to the spine and lower ribs IN, like your zipping up your core to access all the strength from there. While in your handstand, make sure you get your shoulders off your neck and tuck the tailbone under. A teacher once told me a handstand is essentially a backbend in the upper body and a forward fold in the lower body - this has helped me greatly. When you’ve practiced a couple off times, come back to Downward-Facing Dog and practice kicking up with the other leg first. Remember: we all begin from where we are, and the time to start is now! Love love love.
Take a deep breath and put your thinking cap on.
I’m going to hit you with some wisdom, k?
Take your weight loss calorie goal, and just toss that number out the window. We’re not going to talk about that right now. We’re going to talk about that minor (or major) freak out we sometimes have when we’re having a really good week, eating really well, then we lose our damn minds and stuff our faces with delicious delicious junk food.
2000 calories is about what your body needs to maintain your weight and keep all your organs doing all those lovely keeping you alive things that they do. Your body burns all those calories at rest. That means that while you’re sitting on your ass, walking to the fridge and back, scrolling through tumblr, etc etc.. your body is making you breathe and make new cells and shit and burns those 2000 calories.
To gain a single pound, you’d have to eat another 3500 calories on top of those 2000. Thats 5500 calories. 5500 calories is a fucking lot of calories, okay? Lets take a look at what 5500 calories looks like.
- One slice of a large pepperoni pizza from pizza hut is 330 calories. You’d have to eat a little over 2 entire large pepperoni pizzas to hit 5500 calories.
- One crunchy taco from taco bell is 170 calories. To eat 5500 calories, you’d have to eat 32 tacos.
- One double cheeseburger from mcdonalds is 440 calories. 12 of those is 5500 calories.
- 21 cheetos are 160 calories. 714 cheetos are 5500 calories.
Was whatever junk you ate probably a bad choice health-wise? Probably.
Did you ruin all your progress? No.
Did you even eat enough to gain an entire whole pound? Nooope.
Are you going to survive, drink some water, go for a walk or run in the morning, and forgive yourself? Yep. You are.
Cause shit happens.
But we move on, and we stay determined, and we get fucking results because thats how bad we want it. You started this journey, and you’re going to finish it. One bump in the road is just that. A little bump in your road.
So, k. Stop freaking out. Forgive yourself. You had a bad night but you’re going to make better choices next time. Now go drink that glass of water, take an advil, do some exercise, and remember that you’re a badass fitblr too full of determination to have any room for fucks to give.
I fucking love this. So right.
This fucking post. So much yes!
Needed to see this so badly right now
