Instead of focusing on the workouts this week, we are going to focus on the motivation behind those workouts. During my ED, I was always looking to be someone else. My motivation came from a desire to be something completely different than myself. I wanted to look like and have the life of some stranger that I didn't even know, all because of their outward appearance. I starved, withheld, sweat, and purged to get these strangers’ bodies, but to no avail. And yet everyday, that impossible vision was my goal: to look like whoever was my current ideal body. It's ...

Happy Monday! Sorry for disappearing on you guys again last week. It’s just been a tad bit busy around here with Sissy and her two nuggets, but I’ll try my best to be better :) Now on to the real reason behind this post. It’s a bit of a doozy, so stay with me here. Yesterday, Ninja and I went to a wedding of one of his co-workers. Let me start off by saying, I love weddings. I love what they represent, I love the smiles and the tears, I love the speeches, I love the groom’s face when he first sees his bride…I just love them. Yesterday though, I was not so in the ...

I’ve learned to roll with the punches so to speak, and not ... Continue Reading...

Healthy VS Clean

It's about to real on the blog today people. Real complicated. Ok, maybe not so much complicated, but I just really felt the need to post about this, because the words "healthy" and "clean" are so abundant around the blog world now a days that I was just wondering...do you guys think there is a difference? What is healthy food? Is it the same as clean food? If you are eating healthy does that mean you are a "clean eater?" And if you are not eating "clean" does that make you unhealthy? Here's my two cents. And again, this is ... Continue Reading...

Happy Marvelous Monday! Hope you guys are having a good start to your week. My Monday morning started off pretty blah, but it picked up along the way thank goodness! Marvelous is...Finally getting over that stupid trend, the thigh gap. You know the one I'm talking about right? The one that only models seem to have? The one that I worked and starved for all throughout high school only to never achieve? Ya, that thigh gap. I finally came to terms with all this just last week. It was Wednesday (aka my leg day) and I was looking in the mirror as I did my Bulgarian ... Continue Reading...
