Fortunate Sally: How "Thinspiration" made me fat →
beingvenus: You may be wondering how the hell that is possible. How could the above photo do anything but encourage? Well, the problem in my case was that the visual goals presented in the above photo required completely different behaviors than the goals in the text and that the pursuit of the visual…
erika heidewald #1 #1!!: I Used to Have a Blog... →
erikaheidewald: I used to have a “healthy lifestyle” blog at healthandhappinessinLA.blogspot.com that I started when I moved out to LA and wrote for two years (until January 2012). I mostly wrote about how healthy I was eating, how much I was exercising, my cute outfits, and how busy I was. Since then I’ve gone… Sadly, this is true for me as well.
Today is the day when I learned to do pull-ups. Today is the day when I looked back to march 12th 2012, when I promised to myself that I would have learned to do a pull up in one year time and I suddenly realised how many things I accomplished in the past year: I quit smoking, I went to Thailand and pushed myself to the limits, I got a new job that I’ve wanted for years, I learned to stop...

Comics and cats. How did I not know about this until now. HOW. HOW?!?!
Started Crossfit in a proper box at the beginning of February, feeling a bit more confident and trying to go back to thai boxe tomorrow. Let’s see if my motivation will be stronger than the excuses. My IBS symptom have worsened so I’m back to veggies like sauteed salad and zucchini. Booooooring. But, I’ve bought some kefir grains to start making coconut milk kefir that is...
I went to the gym after about a month. Still not quite confident to go back to thaiboxing so I just did a quick 20 minute sprint run. This makes me cry: if I think that I am actually writing that I do not feel confident to go and show those pussies in my class what’s my fire is about, I want to cry. But I can’t overcome this sense of inadequateness. I guess it’s the big belly I...
OK so it’s Xmas day, everyone is happy and all… instead I am thinking, while I much on cakes and some more shit on how to get back on track. I let myself go in the past couple of months: new job, stress, lost motivation and basically too many people noseying in my life, telling me that what I was doing was wrong, that I needed to ease up a bit and that I had to enjoy life cos life was...
Whole 30- day 7
So far so good… Oh well until this afternoon I had a shot of vodka :’( damn I feel guilty but it was good, I didn’t drink anything for over a month. I guess it means having to start the Whole 30 again… Or I’ll just keep going and add an extra week after the 4th. I’ll decide tomorrow. News of the day is that I finally started training in crossfit! The workout killed me, but apparently it was an...
Whole 30 day 3
So, this is going better than expected! :) Yay! It could be that it is because it’s only the third day and the weekend has yet to come, but I feel good and not deprived at all. I still tend to eat lots of fats while my goal would be to really try and eat normal meals without adding stupid amounts of fat to counterbalance my need for tasty and nourishing foods, but I am sure I will get there....
That awkward moment when a colleague that you erased from your FB friend list contacts you in work to ask you if what he saw on your PC screen was tumblr and if he can have your contact. FUCK NO! Anyway… WHOLE 30 from today on: gotta get back on track cos i binged way too much recently. Wish me luck, people!
aaaaarrrrrgggggggghhhhhhhhhh I wonder what part of the sentence “I am not in the mood for talking today” is so difficult to understand. Really, ‘cause when I tell someone “I would like to be left alone today, I am not in the mood for talking, live or over the phone because I had a really stressful week and I need to rest and be quiet” people start phoning me at 10 in...
Yesterday we were uneven number in muay thai class so I went to train at the bags, wearing only the gloves because there is no point in kicking the bags with the shinpads on… then our teacher came to me and told me to do the exercises with him and I was like “ehm, darling, I don’t have shinpads” and he was like “we don’t use shinpads when we fight, it’s ok...
