The trouble with going on a strict diet is that you start to feel like you are missing out on things. Youre sitting with your perfectly lovely salad and drooling over your homies fried steak burger. Dont do this to yourself. That said, you have to keep your goals in mind. If you are trying to train for a figure competition, now is not the time to indulge. But the…

Finding your happy weight

Most women I come across have a weight ideal somewhere between 120 and 150 depending on their body type and height. Some just want to feel healthy and strong. Some want muscle definition. Some want to be soft with a flat stomach. But regardless of your aesthetic goals you have to be realistic about what you are willing to do to get there. Sure it would be awesome to keep…

Lose weight with me: the workout

I have my half marathon plan which Im starting next week, doing sprint intervals and hills for short runs and steady state once a week for long runs.

Slut shaming, body image and woman bashing.

So I postthis video on my personal page, which was then reposted to bodyrock.tvs Facebook page and shit went crazy.

We are on the same team

My recent posts have drawn a lot of attention and controversy. Most of which suggest that I dont understand a larger picture. However not addressing every feminist issue in a post about Victorias Secret models does not mean Im short-sighted. As women we are the numerical majority in a country that is no stranger to oppressed people rising together and making change. And yet we are still an oppressed minority….

A dude’s perspective; super models and swag

Note from Mama: This is a guest post written by a co-worker and friend: So The other day I read a fit mama trainings blog about Why Women Love to Hate Victorias Secret Models. Her post talks about the Victorias Secret fashion show and the mildly venomous posts she saw on facebook regarding the models. This of course got the comment section rolling, which is awesome. I love a good…

A recovering anorexic responds to model bashing

Note from Mama: I didnt write about the Victorias Secret models because I am solely an advocate for thinness and thin people. I wrote about it because Im an advocate for women (small, medium, large, extra juicy, all of your beautiful asses) loving themselves and respecting each other. I took on Rush Limbaugh (and the media) when he spoke about Michelle Obamas body here. I write about loving your imperfections….
