So in between all the stress of school and having 2 family members dying in the last year, I gained back all of the weight that I so proudly lost when I dumped my ex-bf.
And now I am feeling so shitty and low, and really in need of encouragement. Any words of wisdom?
first run in 6 months was rough as f*ck…
I know this literally has nothing to do with fitspo, but it would help me out a lot if you guys would help me spread the word. I am trying to get my YouTube channel going, and am trying to get as many people to see it as possible.
It’s a vlog channel, with all kinds of videos, from food to travel. If you are interested, please click the link (it won’t give you any viruses, I swear!!) and I will love you long time.
Guys, this is actually a very serious post.
I stopped posting on this blog (my personal tumblr is still up and running) because I became way to obsessed with my body, what I ate and how I should be looking. And now, for the first time in probably 10 years I don´t obsess about food and fitness every single day. I have tried to stop comparing myself to other girls and how they look.
I don´t think this is the same for everyone, but I can say for sure that for me the fitblr community here on Tumblr is not healthy. Being bombarded by tons of pictures, quotes and food that shows you that you are just not living up to your “potential”. At least, that´s how it became for me.
I am proud of the achievements that I accomplished while on here (like the half-marathon) but gaining some health does not make up for the loss of most of your sanity, in my opinion. I think that for you people who already have a bit of an unhealthy relationship to either working out, or eating, the fitblr tag isn´t necessarily the best place for you.
I have tried to channel my expressive side into other projects, and if you would like to check them out there is always my personal blog or my YouTube channel. I will not be updating this blog anymore, but I will leave it up incase anyone is interested.
I started using the Nike+ ipod chip for my shoes, and the corresponding app, just because it is calibrated by the rhythm of your run and not by a GPS system. I feel like it gives me a more accurate measuring of my runs. I used to use RunKeeper, but whenever I would run through parks or in the woods the GPS would stop working. So now I am trying this, and am pleased so far.

So I am slowly but surely recovering from injury, and trying to do it right this time. But it´s so hard to hold back, and just get tired and frustrated a lot of the time.
I was away for only a little while, and I got like 10 new followers. I just wanna say HI to you all :) Don´t be afraid to message me or otherwise, if you wanna talk!
