Motivation is like an engine. It works great once it’s running, but sometimes the hard part is getting it started.

This is hard for me to post but I feel like it is important. I remember hating my face and hating my skin and looking at all the girls around me in middle school and on tv and in ads and feeling like I was a monstrosity in comparison. But I remember the first time I realized women plucked their eyebrows. And wore concealer. And foundation. And powder. I felt like I had been lied to about what women look like. After modeling and realizing when photographers asked for no makeup, they really meant the photo on the right. I started realizing that the photo on the right was what was in skincare ads and posted by people claiming in the caption to be wearing no makeup some of the time. The photo on the right is the bare minimum of what we expect women to look like when they wake up in the morning. I think makeup can be empowering, but I think that acknowledging that it isn’t natural is important. Modeling and wearing makeup so often makes me especially feel like its important to sometimes be uncomfortably honest about how much of the media we consume is altered in some way. Part of me wanted to wait until my skin was better to do this concept but I realized that was totally missing the point. Thanks for taking the time to read.Photography and Graphic Design by Mark Laubenheimer.

One of the (very many) things my 200 hour yoga teacher training has taught me is to appreciate planks and down dogs for how much they truly work your entire body. I was inspired by that to put together this challenge. It uses different types of planks in increasing difficulty so you build strength and endurance.

As with any strength plan, if your goal is to have significant visual muscle definition or lose weight you HAVE to do cardio to get your heart rate up and burn fat as well as maintaining a healthy, balanced diet! I suggest doing this after your regular cardio or in the morning as an energizing wake up. If you need rest days take them! I didn’t plan any in these 30 days because you know your body best and can decide when you need them. I suggest 1-2 rest days per week!

"SAME GIRL, SAME DAY, *FIVE* DIFFERENT SIZES
I made this today to illustrate how inconsistent sizing in women’s clothing really is. Each of these skirts is a different size - and each fits me perfectly. So what size am I really?Who knows?Certainly not Oasis, Topshop, H&M, or Warehouse, clearly.”
Interesting observation!

Same thing happens to me and jeans. Depending on the brand, I’ve gone from a US 7 to a 13 in juniors sizes.
