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

I love this. Regardless of your starting point. A year is a good time frame in which to expect the changes you want to see.

This thank you there is no short cuts.

1 month until it’s been 1 year! #transformation

This is important no matter if it’s physical or mental, it takes time to change yourself into what you want to be. Get started and stay committed.

“What is the purpose of protein powder, it's not natural?!”
-Anonymous

Covered yours while answering my last anon :)

02.08.140 NOTES Reblog
“Sorry if you've already answered this a million times, but what are your thoughts on protein shakes? I've heard it's not that terrible but you can get more protein from other things like egg whites and stuff. In your opinion, is it a no or a go?”
-Anonymous

**I’m going to cover another anon’s question of “What is the purpose of protein powder, it’s not natural?!” in this as well. Two birds and whatnot.**

Thoughts: protein powder is not necessary, but some prefer it. I don’t know where you live, but the average American consumes more then 3x the amount of protein your body needs. For a healthy diet, a single angus burger from McDonalds would cover the entire amount of protein needed for the day. Not saying an angus burger is healthy, just that it contains enough protein for your entire RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance). It’s a misconception that you need a bunch of protein to build muscle. Yes, you need protein to build muscle but what most people don’t know is that if you’re consuming too much, your body just flushes it out. It’s not used, just peed. Also, if you’re consuming waaaaaayyyyy too much, then it’s very taxing on your kidneys and can cause diarrhea, dehydration and kidney damage. Protein deficiency is unheard of in industrial countries… yes that includes vegans and vegetarians. On the flip side, it takes a lot a lot a lot to create those adverse effects. I personally take protein powder after a workout because your body needs nourishment 30-60 minutes afterwards and I don’t have the time to eat between working out, seeing a client or between clients so it’s an easy and fast choice for me. Also I personally need to consume more calories than I previously was and it’s healthier than scarfing down those cookies that are looking at me right now.

Not getting down to sources of protein. Eating your nutrients is always better than supplementing it (especially when it comes to pills). True it’s not natural, but some people don’t care about that. However, if you search hard enough, it is possible to find powders that are made up of natural ingredients.

In conclusion I’m neither pro nor con protein powders. hahaha Long reply for no straight answer. Sorry love. I believe more in personal preference for this one. :P

Lana Del Rey - Once Upon a Dream (cover)

For the upcoming movie, Maleficent, Disney tapped Lana Del Rey to cover the timeless Once Upon a Dream.

Usually, I am not interested in these kinds of covers or reinterpretations but this is one is pretty spectacular. Not only do Del Rey’s vocals hauntingly shine here, her reinterpretation of the song to fit the darker point of view in Maleficent is really lovely and con dolore.
