I've always wanted to be fit...I've started so many times & as soon as I start seeing results I just quit! I started this blog right after I turned 30. I am now almost 32. I’ve had some ups & downs since I started. I’ve never completely reached my goal though. Currently, I weigh more than I ever have before. Now I’m starting over…again. I'm using this blog to track my status, and I feel that if it is documented then I'll be more accountable for it.

they outlawed this move just because she was the only woman who could do it. 
Surya Bonaly was infamous for (among other things) doing aone blade backflip in the 1998 Olympics, and is the ONLY figure skater who’s ever pulled that off. Not just the only woman, the only figure skater PERIOD. There’s like all ofthree Olympic-class male skaters who did backflips in their routines, and NONE of them could do it one blade.
But wait, there’s more.
Backflips were banned from the 1976 Olympics onward on the official justification that skating jumps are supposed to be landed on one blade, whereas backflips are landed on both blades. The unofficial justification was it was too dangerous, both to the athlete and to the rink — if you didn’t land it perfectly, you could not only break your ankle, but also punch THROUGH the ice surface.
Surya Bonaly was openly contemptuous of the figure skating judges, because they were a bunch of openly racist white men who always screwed her over by giving her lower scores than she deserved. That one-blade backflip was her ultimate FUCK YOU! to the Olympics judges, because she took an “illegal” backflip and made it legal by landing it on one blade. Pretty much DARING them to mark her down for being epic awesome and pulling a move that their precious coddled white girls didn’t have the guts to even think about.
They did, of course. White racism knows no bounds. But she utterly owned them with that move.
not only did she do a fucking backflip and land, she landed then went right into a triple loop. like holy fuck

Damn son I ain’t seen shit like that.

Never not reblog

Just because.

Back in the game

So I fell off the wagon…and I fell HARD! Last year at this time I was running almost 6 miles a day and weighed around 165lbs.  I ballooned up to 192lbs. I look bad & I feel bad.  I can’t fit into any of my clothes & I refuse to buy new clothes. 

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been trying to get my eating under control. I’ve lost a couple of pounds and I’m down to 188lbs already. I started running again last week. I ran 3 times last week and then again  yesterday. I’m getting 3.1 miles in about 33-34 minutes….definitely not my best time but I’m happy I can finish 3.1 without stopping.

I found a goal…I’m shooting for a half marathon in November. I’ve never done a race over a 5K so I’m excited about challenging myself. I have to keep myself motivated. I don’t want to fat and out of shape.

Back home & back on track!

So I spent the week out of town…stayed with the in-laws & despite the best of intentions my plans to stay on track were not successful! Regardless of that, I got home last night & starting this morning I am back on track! I felt bad most of the trip & I’m pretty sure it was because of the garbage I was eating so needless to say I’m so glad to be back home & back to eating healthy!
