is it possible to lose 20 pounds in a healthy way in 2-3 months?
considering that 1-2 pounds a week is the goal when it comes to healthy weight loss, i’d say that 20 pounds in 2-3 months is very possible!
and going about weight loss in such a way is commendable. it’s simply unrealistic when people ask for ways to lose 30 pounds in 2 weeks… due to the rapid weight loss (a good majority of which is water weight), these individuals typically gain the weight back and can become very discouraged/unmotivated about changing their bodies.
really though, they just went about it the wrong way. so to answer your question: yes! it’s possible and is a healthy goal at that. :)
despite the amount of nutrients and protein that they may boast, not all nutrition/energy bars are good for you!
always read the nutrition facts, keeping in mind the grams of sugar and if there are any partially hydrogenated oils!
i love your blog! it's very inspiring, thank you so much (:
noo, thank YOU!
i know i’ve been pretty inactive lately, so i can only hope to continue to be an inspiration to others. :)
eat healthy, work out, and be happy— don’t be too hard on yourself, okay?
good health is not something we can buy. however, it can be an extremely valuable savings account.

i try to keep my opinionated posts to a minimum, unless i’ve been asked something specifically or feel very strongly about an issue. also, very rarely will i ever use others’ photos or material, but frankly, right now as i browse through tumblr, i’m disappointed.
looking at the original version of this photo in addition to all the “daily calorie count” posts (some of which amount to less than 500 calories…..), i can legitimately say that it makes me sad to see the promotion of eating disorders and anorexia. i understand that people struggle with image issues— who doesn’t? it’s a part of human nature.
i also understand that many people with ED blogs are working on recovery, and for those who are, i applaud you. yet… many of these same people, who complain and wish that they didn’t have an eating disorder, reblog photos like this. let me be clear: reblogging photos that are pro-anorexia won’t help. at all.
even worse, many pro-ana, pro-ED tumblr users are still striving to be skinnier, promoting these kinds of images (“i’m happier when i’m starving,” “nothing tastes better than being skinny,” and etcetera).
don’t get me wrong… you may have the mindset that being skinny automatically leads to happiness, but i’m pretty positive that hunger pangs and debilitating health won’t. lie to yourself if you want, but being skinny is simply not enough to be happy.
i realize that some of my followers are pro-ana and pro-ED, and i may lose you because of this post. before you un-follow me, please read these final words:
take matters into your own hands by realizing that your health is most important. no, i’m not calling anorexic people “f***ing disgusting” like some other people do, as that’s not fair or right. i’m also not saying that it’s right for people to say that girls have to look like marilyn monroe in order to be “real”— what people need to realize is that some are born skinny and will be skinny their whole lives.
all i’m saying is to stop and think before internalizing all of the negative thoughts you may have of yourself.
human beings were meant to eat. good night!
regular planks, side planks… they’re amazing at building up your core strength and stabilizer muscles. in fact, i’d say that planks are one of the bestab exercises you could possibly do.
you may not be moving while you do it, but i guarantee your muscles will be screaming for mercy. -curtis penner, youtuber
So, I did the workout that you posted a little while ago tonight (as much as I could do, I couldn't jump much because my parents are sleeping in the next room), and wow, I feel wiped out, but so much better, because I didn't get a workout in today! I feel pretty good right about now :)
yay! i’m happy to hear that! i hope my workouts can continue to provide you with that good feeling while helping to make you stronger.
keep up the exercising! :)
Any ideas for what to bring for lunch at school? Getting tired of PB&J :P
there are plenty of foods you can bring!
follow a diet and exercise regimen that works for you— and don’t gauge your own progress based on others. everyone’s body works differently.
with hard work and consistency, you’ll get to where you want to be.
