Wanna join the gang? Gotta do 8,000 burpees to be inducted. No weakness allowed. The @wongfupro boys came over today and proved their worthiness to me. #wongfuworkoutcomingsoon
This is an ice cream macaron sandwich. I just uploaded “what I eat in a day.” This macaron was not in the video. Do not be confused. My food in the video is more typical of what my daily diet looks like. But you can bet that when I get to YOLO, I’ll #yolomeal it good. And that happens about once a week :) Alright now go to www.youtube.com/blogilates to watch my new vid! Worked really hard on it so I hope you like it!!
Tomorrow I’m uploading my “what I eat in a day” video! Thank you for the suggestion. I had a lot of fun recording my meals!! It was like taking food pics for Instagram all day long! Can’t go wrong with that! (Anyone else guilty of making your table guests wait to eat dinner until you get a decent pic?) Oops just me? Ok. Bye.
Good morning beautiful POPsters! Woke up and found these old mint shorts that I haven’t worn for 2 years. Had to put them on right away. Amazing how if you don’t see something for a while it feels like new! I should probably hide my clothes as a cure to stop buying more. PS: Please no comments saying my legs are photoshopped! First of all, really!? You know I don’t do that. And second of all, I’ve seen an increase of this type of comment recently, but not just on my pics but other peoples pics too. I understand when we “discover” a photoshop job because it was done badly or really out of proportion, but the random photoshop accusations need to stop! I honestly don’t know what to think when someone says “this looks photoshopped.” Like, does it mean I look really good in this pic or does it mean normally I look bad? Lol. Just so you know, the light coming from the back is distorting the curvature of my left leg so it looks kinda wonkytown. Alrighty loves, kisses! 😘
Wow. I just got an email from Instagram saying that they deleted my last post.
ARE. YOU. FREAKING. KIDDING ME!??
I am beyond annoyed that our inspirational conversations and emotional experiences were erased by Instagram because they thought it was child pornography. Well thanks Instagram and the people who reported it. How about you read the caption for once?
I’m reposting the whole thing on my blog. I will not be silenced.
This image strikes me hard. As I little girl, I was chubby, I was made fun of (having my last name didn’t help either), and I do remember turning my fingers into little scissors and wishing I could cut off my fat.
Honestly, I didn’t even know what fat was or that anything was “wrong” with me until the other kids told me so. Some days I was really terrified of going to school. I tried to distract it all by just studying harder.
It wasn’t until 7th grade when I started to get taller/skinnier and when I moved to a new school that the bullying stopped.
This notion that “thinner is better” and that “fat is bad” gets ingrained in kids’ head from an early age…whether it’s subliminally from media or just hearing it from other family members complaining about their bodies. So it is HARD to accept your body when everyone tells you not to. Body dissatisfaction begins to take over your life and you become obsessed with changing it. And you know what? Some girls won’t know how to. That’s when the dangerous habits begin.
"Over 80 percent of 10-year-old girls are afraid of being fat. By middle school, 40-70 percent of girls are dissatisfied with two or more parts of their body, and body satisfaction hits rock bottom between the ages of 12 and 15." (NYC.gov)
So how do I like my body now that I’m a fitness instructor? There’s days when I love it and days when I hate it just like any other girl. Social media comments don’t make it any easier, but seriously if you make stupid remarks and your profile is private and you have no followers, just stop it.
I know that at the end of the day, I am more than just my physical appearance. Seriously. My body holds my talents, my dreams, and my drive. It doesn’t define me. So don’t let it define you either. Let’s teach our little girls this. They don’t need to know that anything is wrong with their body because there isn’t. They just need to know that they should smile, work hard, and reach for their wildest dreams, whatever it may be. The change starts with this generation, now.
Thanks @fit2fat2fitwife and @fit2fat2fit for the emotional conversation yesterday.
Look at those headstands! Good job guys!! I’m so glad you tried it and took a pic for me to see :) What pose do you wanna learn next? (Shoutout to POPsters @bionbion_melon, @vhoccyholic__2, and @iisvi) #blogilatesyoga
This is my new romper! What do you think? I am so in love with it! By the way…I have a snapchat now! Are you guys on there? My username is blogilates. Add me :)
Want the easiest, tastiest, paleo pancakes ever? Try this: 🍳🍳 2 eggs + 🍌 1 banana. Blend it. Pour it on a pan with a spray of oil on medium low heat. Flip. Done. PANCAKES!!! This is 1 serving and it’s about 250 cals for breakfast.
It took me a good few months to master a headstand with confidence and no wall. It may take you longer or shorter, but the most important thing to remember is that every time you practice, you WILL get better and better. You will fall plenty of times. You’ve just got to pick yourself up, never stop trying, and never give up. Watch my new video on www.youtube.com/blogilates on how to do a headstand! Have fun and use the hashtag #blogilatesyoga to show me your progress! I’ll be featuring some of my fave pics of you guys later in a shoutout collage. So get on it!!
Why hello there! I stretched tonight after the gym and am feeling good. Even in bed before 11! Phone in hand, yes, but it’s a huge accomplishment for me! Hope you have a lovely start to your week! Don’t forget to do the new video on www.youtube.com/blogilates on Monday. I teach you how to do a headstand! 😘 (Bra and shorts from @bodypopactive)
