Are Quest nutrition bars really as healthy as they claim to be? I know some popular fitness bloggers promote them but I’m not so ready to take their word for it because they get paid big bucks to do that. I don’t know, they just seem pretty processed to me. And you know what they say: if it seems to good to be true, it probably is.
Does anyone know the title of a novel about two sisters where one is paralyzed and being taken care of by the other because of guilt? I read it ages ago and now all I remember is how the one sister became paralyzed when she fell off a tree (she got caught on a branch on her way down and her spine ‘folded’ around the branch) because her sister shook the branch they were sitting on because she thought the boy she fancied liked her sister instead? I think the story’s setting is in the Middle East. I’ve been trying to remember the title for hours and it’s driving me up the wall!
It’s already 5:30 am but it’s still pitch-black outside so I can’t start my run because there’s no way I’m running in the dark in a cemetery. I’ve been dressed and ready for 35 minutes and I can feel my motivation slowly melting like a popsicle under the sun.
i've just remembered your blog from over a year ago, and i'm so pleasantly surprised to see you're still here! you were the source of a lot of positivity and inspiration during my last weightloss venture. here's to round two! :)
I just finished reading My Mad Fat Teenage Diary and it was hilarious and engaging, but the character they based Finn on basically told Rae at the very end that she would be ‘better’ if she lost a few pounds and toned up a bit. I’m mentally booing him so loudly it’s giving me a headache.
“And if your daughter came to you, crying with hunger, would you tell her no? Would you tell her she is too fat, she wants too much, she must shrink into society? No.
Then why would you tell yourself the exact same thing? You are somebody’s daughter.”—Michelle K., You Are Somebody’s Daughter. (via perfect)
heyyy my name is emma :) i have had such trouble contacting you cause your ask was closed or something :( well i just wanted to tell you that your caricatures are amazing and i was wondering if it is ok that i used them in a fitness guide (book) i have credited you in everything and sourced your images! i would love to send you a copy of it x i really hope this was ok! i made sure you got alll of the credits and i have shown people your blog and who you are!
I’m sorry but I do mind, actually. You should’ve asked my permission before you used them, not after, especially since it’s not just for your personal use. You can’t just assume people will be okay with you using their work without permission, even if they’re properly credited :(
This sounds so cheesy and stupid but you drawing the muslim girl and it having so many reblogs really made me think that maybe the next generation aren't going to discriminate.
Not at all! And yes I think we’re headed in that direction, people nowadays are becoming more and more accepting and less and less narrow-minded! :)
Anonymous asked you: I LOVE YOUR NEW ICON!!!!
Thank you! Louise is brilliant, I want to be her when I grow up haha :D
Anonymous asked you: Heeey! My name is Vanessa, I’m 22 and I come from Poland. I was training swimming for over 15 years (yes, I started when I was five) and it was my whole life- now I finished beacuse it required sacrifice and a lot of time. Now I enjoy other sports, love spending time on the gym and many more. But why I write- can you make one day a drawing of swimmer? I usually see drawings of fitness, running etc but I never noticed any picter of swimmer. I’ll be very thankful ;) Vanessa
It’s a limit of signs in every letter but I also want to thank you for all motivation in picter- they are genius! All the best in New Year, much health and sunny days, smile and everything you wish! Have a great day and whole year. Byee ;* Vanessa
Thank you, Vanessa!! I’m actually planning on making a series of posts featuring different sports, so a swimmer is definitely down the line, don’t worry. I wish you good health and happiness too this year, you deserve it! Cheers from Ph! :)
