If its something you can change, do it. If its something that you can’t, live with it. Accept your fate, or change it. You don’t have to burden the world with your verbal laments and complaining about how life isn’t fair. You know what isn’t fair? Making people deal with your negativity. Be your own source of positivity.
Like the pants that sit so low they’re barely even on your hips. How do you exorcise in those?!
Thank you, you have a great fitspo site.
I had a piece of birthday cake for the first time in a long time, and only because it was for my mom. All I can say is disgusting. I think butter cream frosting may now have a place on my list of hated foods. I swear I can remember loving this stuff once upon a time. That looking at pictures of it would trigger a longing and deprivation that couldn’t be matched by anything. Now eating it disgusts me and gives me a headache. This has been building for a while now. I’ve been enjoying cake and similar sweets less and less each time I eat them but this is the first time I’ve ever found it repulsive. I want to try and hold onto this moment so that the next time I start to get that twinge of jealously while watching someone eating it I can replace that feeling with this memory.
Thank you! I’m glad you found it too, who knows how long it would have taken me to find yours otherwise.
I just realized I haven’t made any personal posts in a while; I didn’t think there’s much to tell. I’ve been really busy so I haven’t even been online much. So how about a quick catch up?
I’ve tucked away the scale because my life was starting to revolve around it again. I also put away my food scale and counter and just went back to eating the way I use to; half a plate of low GI vegetables and 4-7 ounces of protein (depending on my level of hunger). I’ve also added more fat into my diet. I feel so satisfied lately that I’m rarely hungry. I am a little worried that my calories are too low most days but I feel good and I figure if my body is running low it’ll let me know.
My workouts are currently rotating between a week of Turbo Fire and mixed cardio followed by a week of walking/jogging and strength training. It’s working out really well, it feels like I’m giving it my all for one week then get plenty of recovery time. Plus it’ll keep my body from adjusting to the routines.
I have no idea what my weight currently is but I do feel bonier, and the other day I was at the store when a girl I hadn’t seen in months loudly announced to everyone, “OMG your freaking legs have gotten even thinner, that’s not fair!” Once I got over the initial embarrassment I decided to take it as a positive sign of over looked progress. I didn’t think it was possible to gain anymore weight by toning my muscles and that the slow drop is just stubborn fat. However a lot more muscle is showing under the flab lately and I think I’m still around the same weight so…Weight loss is proving to be long and very unpredictable. I’m even starting to question my goal weight. If I’m looking this good and I’m not even under 200 yet I may just stop when I like how I look and feel, screw the numbers*.
*Of course anyone who has been following me long enough knows I’m obsessed with numbers, but I’m working really hard to stop that.
From Eat This, Not That! (2012 edition)
“Fat makes you fat” – University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics
Fat contains more calories by weight than carbohydrates, true. But fat is also filling, and certain fats-like those found in nuts, olives, and fish-are really good for you. When will so-called experts learn: Eating fat won’t make you fat any more than eating money will make you rich.
What they should have said: “Eating too much-of any kind of food-makes you fat.”
“If we’re supposed to go out and eat nothing, if we’re supposed to eat roots and berries and tree bark and so forth, show us how.” – Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh
In our ridiculously partisan world, Michelle Obama could save Washington by catching a nuclear bomb in her teeth and Limbaugh would find fault with her dental work. But by criticizing Obama’s crusade against childhood obesity, the rotund radio ranter just looks silly. Nobody’s recommending a menu of tree bark, least of all the burger-loving Obamas.
What he should have said: “As someone who’s struggled with my own weight related health issues- from a heart scare to painkiller addiction caused by back pain – I know firsthand that overweight children carry a heavy health burden into adulthood. Trying to change all of that sounds like a good idea.”
“High-fructose corn syrup…provides many consumer benefits.” – SweetSurprise.com a publicity front for –you guessed it– the Corn Refiners Association
Besides changing the group’s name from “Sweet Surprise” to “Nasty Surprise,” this corn syrup flack attack would be much more honest if they admitted that HFCS has allowed the food industry to cheaply oversweetened legions of our snacks and staples, accelerating our junk-food-fuled descent into obesity.
What they should have said: “High-fructose corn syrup is not that different from sugar. And neither one is good for you.”
“No consumer could reasonably be misled into thinking Vitaminwater was a healthy beverage.” – Attorney representing the beverage’s maker, Coca-Cola
Really? “Vitaminwater” doesn’t sound like “a healthy beverage”? What’s their next marketing strategy, renaming Fanta “Nice Shiny Teeth Drink”? In reality, Vitaminwater is nothing more than the latest slick sugar-delivery vehicle. The minor benefits of the vitamins mixed in are vastly outweighed by the damage these sweetened drinks can cause. We were relieved when a federal judge ruled the packaging misleading.
What they should have said: “Vitaminwater? Oh, we meant to call it ‘Sugarwater.’ Our bad!”
“I am eating a health diet.” – Ninety percent of the 1,234 American adults surveyed by Consumer Reports
Two out of the three women and three out of four men in America are overweight or obese. We have become so fat that even contestants on The Biggest Loser look somewhat normal. In reality, only about 33 percent of Americans eat enough fruits and 27 percent eat enough vegetables every day, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
What they should have said: “Eating a healthy diet is very difficult in America today.”
