This is a picture of me and my two gorgeous best friends. Clearly, we all have very different body types, and you know what? None of us is healthier, prettier or happier than the others because of it.
That’s me on the left. I’m short, super petite, and have about as much muscle mass as a blob of gelatin. Despite being naturally thin, I have always been far from in shape. Not even a month ago, running two minutes at a time was a struggle—now I can run without stopping for more than a half hour.Felicia, in the center, is probably the most active girl I know. The opposite of me, she’s one of those people that can build muscle just by looking in the direction of a dumbbell. She loves running like I do, and we’ve discussed running a 5k. She’s a big yoga enthusiast and has tried all sorts of different forms that I can’t pronounce, and she’s found free community yoga classes for us to attend together. Also, she has abs of steel, seriously. She’s helping me with my ab workouts. She’s also recently lost over 60 lbs through her active lifestyle and healthy diet.That’s my friend Maddy on the right. She’s curvy and feminine, but she’s a beast in the gym. Strength training is her thing. She could probably bench press two of me. Not only is she incredibly strong, she’s insanely flexible and an avid pole dancer. We’re taking classes together even though she can spin circles around me on that damn pole, and look gorgeous while she does it.My friends inspire me so much, and remind me that diversity is lovely. You don’t have to be skinny to be beautiful and confident, nor do you have to look like girls in Nike ads to be strong and fit. You don’t need to weigh a certain number, fit into a certain size, or have a certain appearance to be confident, healthy, or happy. I think that my friends prove that to me. I’ll never be long and willowy like a supermodel, or well-built like all those fitspo girls. I’ll never look like either of my friends, and they’ll never look like me. And that’s ok, because fitness is about being the best you can be, not comparing yourself to others. Embrace what you have, and help others embrace what they have. Fitness is funner with friends. Get them involved. Take a class, go for a walk, make a healthy dinner together. You’ll always have support and a fun activity to bond over.

This is the main reason for my general annoyance with lack of size regulation in the fashion industry…


men’s pants are labeled by waist and inseam measurement. women’s pants are labeled by voodoo. even though i do not buy women’s pants, i can recognize this as objectively dumb.


THE NOTES ON THIS


because i can’t stress this enough. this is why i don’t let the numbers get to me. as jumpingjacktrash so eloquently said “women’s pants are labeled by voodoo.” 

BUT THISTHISTHISTHISTHIS

so when boys make fun of girls taking forever to shop and trying everything on
WE FUCKING HAVE TO OR NOTHING WILL FIT

HOW THE FUCK COULD WE POSSIBLY SHOP WITHOUT TRYING EVERYTHING ON, NUMBERS DO NOT OPERATE NORMALLY IN THE WOMENS SECTION OF THE STORE

Bless this post.

Yeah no I cleaned out my jeans drawer and gave a bunch of jeans to my mom, and the sizes were all over the place and I was confused.

There are many different types of yoga to practice, so its important to find out which type of yoga is right for you. Heres a quick introduction to some of the most common types of yoga:
Bikram Yoga- Get ready to sweat. You will be practicing in 105 degree heat and in 40% humidity. Though Bikram only has 26 poses and theres a lot of alignment work so it is a good fit for beginners.
Hatha Yoga- This class is also likeley to be focused on slow and gentle movements so its a great type of yoga to wind down at night.
Vinyasa Yoga- You’ll definitly be moving, flowing from one pose to the next. It is the most popular style of yoga in America
Kundalini Yoga- Refers to the energy of the Root Chakra, which surronds the area around you lower spine. Expect lots of work in your core area, these classes are known to be intense
Ashtanga Yoga- Commonly called Power Yoga. Asgtanga is definitley physically demanding. It is probably best suited for an ex-athlete or someone who is looking to push their body
Iyengar Yoga- Expect lots of props with this style of yoga such as blocks, harnesses, straps and even cushions. Theres also a lot of focus on alignment so Iyengar can be great for physical therapy.
Anusara Yoga- Expect many heart opening poses like backbends and more talking by the instructor. It is epitomized by the Celebration of the Heart.
Restorative Yoga- If your looking to wind down after a long day of work, quiet your mind- Restorative yoga might be the answer for the relaxation
Juvamukti Yoga- Is a mix of vinyasa flow sequencing infused with chanting and a vegetarian twist
These are only some of the different types of yoga. There are many others- check out your yoga studio for different classes. At the studio I go to there are foundation flow, Wellness vinyasa, mixed yoga styles, detox and refresh, Yin restorative, Yoga for runners and athletes, Yoga for back care and power flow (:

A truly healthy diet
  • doesn’t exclude foods
  • is made up of foods, not numbers
  • is varied and flexible
  • is not restrictive
  • allows you to trust your body
  • is not obsessive
  • doesn’t use food as a reward or punishment
  • doesn’t have to be “perfect”
  • allows you to live your life, but it is not your life
  • does not exclude any food group
  • consists of foods that make you feel energized and healthy
