Just. Like. That. :)

Is it time to unfriend?
It takes energy to worry about what other people might think, how they might judge you, how to impress them, how to appear “worthy” in their eyes, etc, etc. If you find yourself constantly second guessing the very things that make you YOU, and worrying about how certain people might respond, do yourself a solid and unfriend (or redefine the relationship if needed). Some people just won’t be able to handle ALL of your awesome, and that’s okay. There are plenty of people who will (and if you happen to be TOO awesome, there are plenty of people who can handle it in chunks). You deserve a stress free space, surrounded by people who are “pro YOU”, not “pro-an-edited-or-fake-version-of-YOU”. You may be surprised by who your real cheerleaders are, but they’re the ones who deserve more of your attention, love and who will replenish you in every way, instead of depleting or diminishing you. People who would belittle you for being you are revealing a lot about themselves. Namely that they aren’t the right people to be worried about or waste energy on. We never get that energy back. Black hole of uglies.  A little peace of mind might be a click (or a sassy walk) AWAY. Go get it. You’ll like it, a LOT.

If you think this isn’t the damn truth you should know that a few years back, my campus newspaper ran an article that said fat women should be grateful for rape because it’s the only way they’ll ever feel worthy of a man’s attention.

I shit you not.

How stunning is this color? Hard to go wrong with Green Monster deliciousness, no matter what your favorite recipe . :)

(Mine: Banana, Mango, Greek yogurt, spinach, ice and a little water/juice to blend if it’s too thick. Heaven).

What’s your fav monster combo?

I don’t know why I initially loved this image so much, but I had thrown it into the mix for a potential new profile pic. Asked a friend for feedback & when she told me I shouldn’t post such an “ugly” pic online (and that she wouldn’t LET me), I loved it even more. ;)

I mean, c’mon. Eyes-halfclosed, mid jazz hands, weird pucker face… Screams awesome to me. :)

One of my many, many, many sexy faces. Deal with it, lol.

“From the mid-1950s to the early 1970s, women had to appear as ladylike as possible, even when doing something as traditionally masculine as working out with weights. This girl is doing a seated press with respectably heavy weight, but her high heels and helmet0like hairdo are like fig leaves preserving her femininity.”

Chichi a la Cirque Du Soleil! (not really, lol. But wouldn’t that be cool?)
First trapeze lesson = success! Thought I’d share a sneak peek at my  last attempt of the day and first partner catch! Not bad work in an hour, eh?

I’m sore (soooo sore), bruised (soooo bruised), and happypants as hell. It was literally the scariest thing I’ve ever tried (oh-my-gaaaaah), but I’m so thrilled I did it! Facing your fears always comes with a super life high. :) Will be going back for sure.

Went with awesome ladies and we all did SO well! Can’t stop watching the videos (though I’ll only share mine. Will post the “learning/sucking” ones once I edit).
Try something new y’all! Feels good :)

"When women first began to work out with weights, it was considered dangerous to have them lift anything heavy and so they were given only two- or four-pound wooden dumbbells. The fact that women lifted much heavier objects in the home seems to have escaped most of the men who designed the exercise.

Here two cheerful ladies work out in their street clothes in a photograph c. 1910 by Willis T. White.”
