I want you to imagine a ten year old version of yourself sitting right there on this couch. Now this is the little girl who first believed that she was fat, and ugly, and an embarrassment.

This is groundbreaking

this is my third time rebloging this today. this is so important.

I have goosebumps

My Mad Fat Diary’s whole story resonates with me on such a deep level I can’t even explain it. The fact she’s called Rae, the fact she feels exactly how I used to feel, the fact she’s a bigger girl, the fact she has a counsellor and the fact that her accent is almost exactly the same as mine.

It’s like the whole thing was written about me and even though now I have finally recovered from such a painful part of my life, it’s still very much alive and I still know it very much happened.

This is going around again. I saw it in my dashboard with a whole lot of more notes before.

THESE ARE NOT MY WORDS, CREDIT GOES TO FITNESS-GODDESS:
This is so wrong physiologically that it hurts to read.
For those who want to know the actual physiology behind it:
In low intensity exercise (which is up to about 70% of your maximum intensity/max heart rate) you pull out triglycerides from adipose tissue and use a process of the metabolism called catabolism to breakdown those triglycerides into fatty acids for use by your muscles as fuel. That is when you burn literal stored adipose tissue aka fat. This happens before carb catabolism due to there being enough oxygen present to use fat catabolism and the fact that we are built for long-term storage; it’d be pretty unfortunate if we as a species used all of our macronutrients from one meal to fuel ourselves instead finding a way to store macronutrients for when food is scarce.
When you hit about 70% of your max however, you are no longer taking in enough oxygen to use fat catabolism and switch to carb catabolism from glycogen stores created by unused carbs. You are no longer directly burning fat ONLY because you’ve hit oxygen levels too low to do so by doing high intensity exercises. If you went back to low intensity, you’d switch back to fat catabolism. This is actually partially the reason why they say high intensity interval training is so effective.
All of this is paraphrased from the sixth edition Human Physiology textbook written by Dee Unglaub Silverthorne. So there’s your source if you’re anal about sources like I am.

This is why I favor long sessions of low-intensity cardio. HIIT is awesome too, but I kind of hate it to be honest. ;p

Sport Science S02E11: World’s Toughest Woman (June/21/2009)

"Gina can land all 8 blows in a blistering 3 seconds. And how much does this maelstrom combine to generate? An amazing 4,800 pounds of force. That’s like a North Pacific giant octopus pounding you with all 8 of it’s arms. Translation: In 3 seconds, Gina could brake your ribs, give you a concussion, shatter your nose, rupture your spleen, cause internal bleeding, and put you down for the count."

the definition of a healthy lifestyle is not working out all the time, eating fruits and vegetables and lifting.

a healthy lifestyle is doing whatever you like, smiling, inner peace, eating whatever you like and whatever is good for your body and your soul, loving, being happy, laughing with the ones you love, feeling comfortable with your body and being positive. enjoy being alive.
