I hope to be the shining light in the dark world of thinspo, unhealthy advice and incorrect information. Life is about being happy and loving yourself, and that includes your body. Feed it with the foods it loves, let it run free, treat it to a nice dinner and some wine every now and again and your body will take care of you too. <3

“Hope you have the time for advice. As a significant other, how do you support someone who has trained with moderate success but due to health issues (battling with PCOS) and probably a poor trainer. I find it difficult to stay supportive when I constantly see non-commitment (cheating) to stated desires and goals. It has lead to a 50-60 LB swing over the past year. In your experience, is there an emotional/mental element that needs to be evaluated? The last thing I want is for it to be for me.”

Just because someone hasn’t had major success for any reason doesn’t mean that this person is mental or emotionally unstable and needs to be evaluated by you, me or anyone else…  As for the possibility of an emotional/mental issue, there’s a chance, but in my experience when someone has an emotional blockage to their want to exercise, there’s not too much you can do on your side.  If you’re being very supportive, it can often be seen as pushy - like you want he or she to lose weight.  And trust me, that never works out in the end.  All you can do is lead by example and see if your significant other would like to start exercising again.  Let them be.  If you truly feel he or she has an emotion element that needs to be addressed such as depression, just be there for them. <3 However, if your significant other has specifically asked you to keep him or her motivated and on his or her feet, that’s a different battle.  Be as damned supportive as you can be.  In my relationship, I’m in the latter and I pre make breakfast lunch and dinner for my significant other and offer to be gym buddies.  It doesn’t always work, but if he or she truly wants this, they will put in the work.  You can’t force anyone to do anything. 

All you can do is love them <3

This website is like a suicide hotline but with text chat instead.  I would appreciate it if you guys helped spread the word.

Guys, seriously. Signal boost. I needed this the other night, and a few weeks ago I was talking with someone who needed it. This is the best freaking thing ever. 

Always.

I am so glad I found this. I hate calling hotlines. this is perfect, everyone must know.

“To that last anon, if you plan on running long distances I personally wouldn't recommend the free runs. I used to love my nikes but as I upped my miles I found they weren't the most supportive and I ended up with some terrible joint pain. I recently switched to asics gt 2000 and they made a world of a difference but I still use my free runs for cross training. If there is a Fit to Run or other specialty running store you should check it out and ask one of the experts!!”
-Anonymous

I don’t know how big of a difference this makes, but they say you need to ease into your Frees.  Don’t just start running long distances in them.  Start with half a mile, then a mile, then two, then three, yada yada yada. I didn’t even start running in mine for a while, I let my feet get used to them first.  I would wear them to school and to walk in.  I would just wear them as normal shoes all day and then I got into activity and eventually running.  So I reeeeaaally took my time with easing into them and they worked out just fine for me.  I can run without any foot problems.  The point of the Frees is that they are supposed to simulate barefoot training…. like you’re “free” so they aren’t supposed to have much support, but your feet will be fine if you take the time to ease into them.  But again, everyone is different.  If you don’t want to spend the time breaking them in and getting your feet adjusted, then I would suggest another shoe.

“How would you rate nike free runs? Are they good for working out as well as running?”
-Anonymous

I absolutely LOVE them! They do support lateral movement and well as forward movement so you can use them to run and work out in safely.  :D

10 things to check on the nutrition label.
1. First thing to check should be the serving size. A lot of people go straight to calories but that’s not any good if your serving is a teaspoon.
2. Now that you know how big the portion is, check if the calories are relevant. 
3. If you’re on a diet, this is what you’re targeting. Check how much fat you’re putting into your body. Anything more than 5 should be avoided if you’re looking to lose weight.
4. Trans fat are the enemy of any body, diet or not. These fats do not get burned off. They stay stored and accumulate, eventually blocking your arteries. You can find many food items with 0 grams but you’ll occasionally have to settle to 0.1 or 0.2. Anything higher than that should be left on the shelf.
5. Sodium is your salt intake. Salt will retain your water instead of letting it flush out of your system. The lower the number, the better.
6. Carbs are the first to burn up. If you’re looking to trim down, you’ll want to keep that number low so you can target burning your fat.
7. Fiber is good to flush your system but it’s easy to overdo your intake since it’s found in so many different foods. Don’t put all your fiber in the same meal.
8. Any diet knows that sugar doesn’t help losing weight. Keep that number low.
9. Protein is the second thing to be burned up. However, it’s important to keep protein coming into your body with every meal. Just don’t overdue your daily value.
10. It’s good to keep an eye on how much calories are considered in calculating the daily values. Someone on a diet will obviously not be consuming 2000 calories so keep a calculator close to do the math depending on your calorie intake on your personal diet.
