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.
Todays workout gear :) Slowly but surely, the chubbs around my stomach is disappearing! yay!
I’m thinking those squats are paying off :)
My dash is quickly filling up with many beautiful women, and that is very nice and inspiring. But I would love to follow some male fitspo bloggers. No matter if you post pictures of yourself or others. I just want some inspiration and eye candy :)
Reblog or message for follow !
I thought I´d just make a little update, since I have been silent for quite a while. I have been struggling with injuries for the bigger part of 3 months now. My latest was a couple of weeks ago when an old shoulder injury reared it´s ugly head again and my should got dislocated. To say that it hurt was an understatement, and I still can´t fully move it or dress myself without being in pain. So because of these things my training has been temporarily suspended.
BUT! I just wanted to say that have NOT put on any weight since I did the whole 2 month training up to and the running of the half marathon in february-march-april. And here is a little current picture, just to prove it.
PS. note the weights in the background. Never out of sight, therefor never out of mind ;)
I am never going to love myself if I don’t start to appreciate my uniqueness and understand that I am me, and not all the other girls I see in the photographs.
