The progress is real folks. It literally is possible. When you put down the garbage you are eating, quit being a lazy pile of netflix binger (it’s great in moderation!) and TALK GOOD TO YOURSELF you WILL SEE AMAZING RESULTS! Stop beating yourself up for where you are at right now. We all start somewhere. The scale is a mother fucking liar I hope you use it as a GUIDE and not a DEFINITION. It reads body weight, not fat weight. You’re not stupid or a loser for who you are or what your body type is. If you want it, you’re going to have to fucking work for it and work for it hard. Don’t listen to the fuckers You’re going to mess up, you’re going to want to give up, you’re going to learn. It’s called delayed gratification. Do what you need to do when you need to it so you can be who you want to be. As young adults were so accustomed to having everything done and given to us right away. Work fucking hard for your body. When you do you will see that you will work fucking hard for everything else in life. YOU ARE CAPABLE OF BEING THE PERSON YOU WANT TO BE!

For more motivation, challenges I’m in at my gym, or just someone to give you that push give me a follow!!

Men always say that as the defining compliment: the Cool Girl. She’s a cool girl. Being the Cool Girl means that I am a hot, brilliant, funny woman who adores football, poker, dirty jokes, and burping, who plays video games, drinks cheap beer, loves threesomes and anal sex, and jams hot dogs and hamburgers into her mouth like she’s hosting the world’s biggest culinary gang bang while somehow maintaining a size 2, because Cool Girls are above all hot. Hot and understanding. Cool Girls never get angry; they only smile in a chagrined, loving manner and let their men do whatever they want. Go ahead, shit on me, I don’t mind, I’m the Cool Girl.
Men actually think this girl exists. Maybe they’re fooled because so many women are willing to pretend to be this girl. For a long time Cool Girl offended me. I used to see these men - friends, coworkers, strangers - giddy over these awful pretender women, and I’d want to sit these men down and calmly say: You are not dating a woman, you are dating a woman who has watched too many movies written by socially awkward men who’d like to believe that this kind of woman exists and might kiss them. I’d want to grab the poor guy by his lapels or messenger bag and say: The bitch doesn’t really love chili dogs that much - no one loves chili dogs that much! And the Cool Girls are even more pathetic: They’re not even pretending to be the woman they want to be, they’re pretending to be the woman a man wants them to be. Oh, and if you’re not a Cool Girl, I beg you not to believe that your man doesn’t want the Cool Girl. It may be a slightly different version - maybe he’s a vegetarian, so Cool Girl loves seitan and is great with dogs; or maybe he’s a hipster artist, so Cool Girl is a tattooed, bespectacled nerd who loves comics. There are variations to the window dressing, but believe me, he wants Cool Girl, who is basically the girl who likes every fucking thing he likes and doesn’t ever complain. (How do you know you’re not Cool Girl? Because he says things like: ‘I like strong women.’ If he says that to you, he will at some point fuck someone else. Because ‘I like strong women’ is code for ‘I hate strong women.’)
I waited patiently - years - for the pendulum to swing the other way, for men to start reading Jane Austen, learn how to knit, pretend to like cosmos, organize scrapbook parties, and make out with each other while we leer. And then we’d say, Yeah, he’s a Cool Guy.
But it never happened. Instead, women across the nation colluded in our degradation! Pretty soon Cool Girl became the standard girl. Men believed she existed - she wasn’t just a dreamgirl one in a million. Every girl was supposed to be this girl, and if you weren’t, then there was something wrong with you.

I lifted my way through recovery and I’ve progressed so much in the past year. It’s crazy how much things can change when you start believing in yourself. I want others to believe that they have the power to achieve anything they want and they too can lift their way through recovery. #recovery #edrecovery #progress #girlswholift #girlswithmuscle #bodybuilding #fitfam #healthy #iifym #motivation #fitness
