Meanwhile in my head:
Calories? Meh, still don't get it.
When the tracking calories leads to frustration, or worse inaction, then counting calories becomes self-defeating. Knowing you have 23kg/calories/kcal (or whatever scientific demigod terminology you choose to prioritize) will not make the second part of the equation (physical activity) easier. Awareness of your caloric intake at the moment of consumption is temporary validation. I have gotten...
Is there such thing as post yoga itis? don’t act like you don’t know about the itis goakingo (black actors.) seriously, i’m gonna sleep really well tonight…although thanks to this pose my quad is still numb and tingly in nothing but not in like a painful way. weird.
Went to Bikram Yoga for the first time since...
First off, I’m not gonna lie normally I am pretty good about not getting distracted by attractive women in class. It’s pretty hard to focus on much while unnaturally bending in a 110+ degree room. Besides, attractive women exist outside of class as normal people too. Sidenote: my advice to my fellow men. Start a conversation and give people a chance to surprise you. Don’t be...

powertraceur: Try as hard as you want. Freerunning will never be a spiritual practise, and I’m so glad of that fact. There is nothing more based in reality, no action more reliant on rational decisions and evidence, nothing more steeped in reason, than human physical movement. The expression of your individuality, creativity, development of your style, through movement - they all rely on you....

Curly4Crossfit: I'm Cold. →
curly4crossfit: My heartache is magnified during the holidays. Not only are my expectations apparently too high, but I have no access to a barbell (remember, I forgot to ask Santa for a Rogue bar). I feel like a caged animal. Yes I love my family. Yes I enjoy doing what they want to do. But I find myself distant. THIS. Blown away. Amazing prose. Beautifully raw truth. Her words stand alone...

In nature there are neither rewards nor punishments; there are consequences.– Robert Green Ingersoll, lawyer and orator (1833-1899)
lvingthedream asked: Hey, I have been out of the loop for a while. But what happened to stephyfullofgrace??
Daddy wants to drop in at this box! Also, I my butt would def hit the bar.

Restrictive Dieting? Why?
I don’t get it. If my body is not meant to eat something it will respond accordingly. It took a paleo reset to get attuned to exactly the foods that my specific body responds the most efficiently too (steak and fruit) but it was worth it. Whenever I think ahead about my meals I always pretend that future me is an ADHD 10 year old that wants to burn shit and climb trees, and is susceptible...
