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 have researched a little and it seems like it has shown that bread, like wheat isn't that good for the body. What are your opinions on grains?”
-Anonymous

That’s the current “health craze” going around, but to be honest, it’s more hype than anything. Unless you have an intolerance, sensitivity or have celiac disease, there’s not really point to eliminating it. In fact, if you’re not sensitive to gluten, then taking foods that contain gluten out of your diet can actually be harmful. HERE and HERE are articles from a credible source stating that. Also, my cousin took breads and other fiber-rich foods that contain gluten our of her diet purely because she believed it was healthier for her. Because she didn’t get enough fiber, she now has diverticulitis. So please be careful and get yourself tested before you take gluten out of your diet. You could be missing out on so many vitamins that are necessary to your diet.

If you do need to go gluten free, do your homework so you can get  all those nutrients and live a total healthy life :)

“My friend and I have an ongoing dispute about whether to do yoga during the heavy days of your period. My sister has an accident that was very embarrassing where she was in the lotus position and the dam broke and out gushed a river red on the mat with four others observing it. Plus the instructor was male. Don't you think we should take a break on certain days when Aunt Flo comes to visit? Cynthia”
-Anonymous

Well I’ve never had a problem with it but everybody’s body is different. If you don’t feel comfortable doing yoga on heavy flo days, then don’t do it. If it helps, they do make super jumbo tampons or pads and you can put a new one on just before you start a class? If that doesn’t help, just skip a day or two. It won’t kill you or set you back.

“How could the 3rd girl weigh as much as the 4th or 5th girl. Come onnn. Compare their boob sizes, waists, and legs. This is false information. Angie”
-Anonymous

The whole point of the post was to learn not to judge someone’s weight based on their body size.

There are so many things that should be taken into account that you can’t see with the naked eye or don’t really think about. For example muscle mass is the BIG one here. 4 could have more than 3. You never know. More muscle less fat could weigh the same as more fat less muscle. Posture. Someone could be slouching and appear larger or smaller. Height is an obvious difference for weight. Muscle imbalances. The way people carry their weight and/or fat.

Not every woman (or man) weighing 154 looks the same or even look like they weigh that much at all. I currently weigh 154 and I too look nothing like any woman in that photo because I am me and my body is different from yours or theirs. The whole point was that you don’t know what someone weighs or if two people weigh the same based on simply looking at them.

Not false information. Come onnn.

“Have you been to lullulemon? Are their clothes worth the price for just working out?”
-Anonymous

I actually just got a $50 gift card for them for my birthday and was going to get my first article of clothing from them to see what all the hype is about. I think they’re clothes look great but I still have yet to try out if the quality is really worth the outrageous prices.
In short…. I don’t know… Yet hahaha

“This may be a weird question, so I know nike free runs are more for running, but are they good shoes to work out in?”
-Anonymous

Funny you should ask, I just got my first pair for Christmas!

Yes they are great running shoes but they do support lateral and multi-directional movement. So if you’re doing aerobics or other classes or sports that involve moving to the side (basketball is the biggest example I can think of right now) or any other directions, you’ll be supported. If you don’t get shoes that support these kinds of movements, then be careful. I can’t tell you how many times I rolled my ankle teaching aerobics classes in strictly running shoes. But anyway, back to the frees. I do weight train in them and they feel phenomenal. I love how light they are and they never rub or make my feet feel uncomfortable. They’re amazing!
