Oh my gosh people, be nice to your waiter/waitress, it’s not their fault that your food is cold or if it’s under cooked. Be nice to the cashiers who are still training and can’t ring up your items as quickly as you want. If a stranger smiles and says hello to you, smile and say hello back! It’s just common courtesy, I don’t understand why people have to be so rude.
pretty accurate ^^
The tricky thing about yoga is that you think you do it exactly as the instructor and then you see yourself in the mirror and be like LOL NO.
I think everyone who sees someone doing yoga thinks “aw hell yeah I can do that. How hard can it be?!!?” And then they do it. And just. No.
- Fat cells & muscle cells are two entirely different entities. You don’t CHANGE fat into muscle. Once a fat cell is gained, it is NEVER lost. Only shrunk or expanded.
- Higher lean body mass (muscle mass) results in greater insulin sensitivity, decreasing the risk of diabetes and increasing the body’s ability to process food & fat for energy instead of storage. Higher lean body mass increases RMR (resting metabolic rate) resulting in more fat loss with the same or less effort.
- Up to 30% of weight loss from diet alone is from lost muscle mass. Sarcopenia is the natural loss of muscle mass over time due to ageing. Increased muscle mass protects from the effects of sarcopenia over time.
- Resistance (strength) training increases bone density, which decreases the risk of osteoporosis.
What does it all mean? Not all exercise is created equal. Get off the treadmill, pick up something heavy and build yourself some muscle. There is more to working out than weight loss. This is NOT about skinny - this is about long term health and mobility.

“Nobody says anything about that”
I’ve reblogged this about 40 times. But let me do it again.
This past month and a half have been difficult. I stayed the same weight for a good month. I’ve slacked off and gotten off track but its never easy. Something worth while doesn’t come without effort. I hit 50 lbs Thursday May 9th. Its been five months and I wasn’t proud of myself because I KNOW I could have done way better. I wasn’t counting how far I’ve come but how far I had to go. After putting these pictures side by side I am proud. I’ve come far from who I use to be. Not just physically but mentally and emotionally. I’m proud of who I am.
Well done to this chick especially.
Healthy is not a weight. It’s not a diet. It’s not exercising 7 days a week and it’s not eating clean 7 days a week. And most of all, healthy is not the same for everyone.
