Shopping Scams: Do You Really Know Your Size?
"We have all been there… the jeans you thought would fit in the dressing room don’t fit at all! Take a breath. It’s not you, it’s something called vanity sizing."
This is such an important message to women and men, young and old. Don’t let a number dictate your happiness. Just like the number on the scale, the number on your clothing will never determine your health, your happiness, or even your true “size”. Find clothing that fits you correctly and that make you feel comfortable and confident. Never let a concealed number stuck in your garment make you feel less beautiful or worthy than you truly are. 

This is so important.

Women are told it is unfeminine and gross to have muscles and to cultivate strength, which in turn leads them to actively avoid doing things that will build muscles and strength, which then makes them even less capable of doing things that require strength, which the critics then use as proof of women’s inherent physical frailty. And so the cycle continues…

Don’t make These Five Rookie Running Mistakes:
Keep checking your watch: When you first start running, it can be easy to want to know how fast you’re going and how long you have left. But keeping tabs on the ticking seconds can be discouraging, especially if you’re already feeling exhausted by the first mile. Don’t worry too much about how fast you’re going — in fact, ignore that treadmill display or running watch for the most part, and only check on it periodically.
Ignore body signs: Feel a twinge in your lower back or a dehydration-induced headache? Now’s not the time to power through. To prevent injuries that can sideline your new running habit, pay attention to how you’re feeling — grab water if you’re thirsty, and stop if you’re feeling injured anywhere. Be sure that you’re stretching afterward as well in order to prevent day-after soreness and flexibility issues.
Push yourself too hard: All-out sprints are great for some short runs, but if you’re a beginner, it’s better to start off slow. Don’t worry about if you need to slow down even more — just because you’re taking walk breaks doesn’t mean you’re not a runner. 
Compare yourself: Everyone has a different pace, so don’t feel bad if you aren’t keeping up with that seasoned runner who just passed you. While it can be fun (and beneficial) to run alongside someone who challenges your time, when you first start, your focus should be on finishing those miles, not winning a race.
Pick the same route: You love that lakeside loop for its views and lack of inclines, but running it every time you head out isn’t going to make you a better runner. Make sure you switch up your route to keep things interesting and challenge new muscles; you’ll be more likely to stick to your running habit if you keep switching things up.

Welcome to my mass-progress-tricks post

All of these pictures were taken within the same 5 minutes.

I want people to realize that photography is all about position and lighting. I’m sick of seeing comments on photos saying “I wish I looked like that” even on mine, because guess what? The person in the photos doesn’t even look like that. And chances are they took another 20 photos before they got the right one. Everybody thinks that just because it’s clear someone hasn’t used photoshop it must be the real thing. But if you look close enough, you can spot these little tricks.

We’ve all seen pictures like this, we’ve even taken pictures like this. But lets not skip meals and go for 3 hour long runs to look like a body you saw on tumblr which doesn’t exist in a sense.

it’s funny when people think high school students take things seriously because this is what we do

WHY IS THIS A THING

they’re probably swimmers guys

I don’t care what they are. I can’t stop watching it. 

I’m still stuck on people thinking high school students always taking things seriously?
