why-the-hate:

A few basic backbends:

  1. Camel Pose: generally a beginner pose but can be made harder by creating a straight line upwards from your knees to your hip bones. 
  2. Wheel Pose: can range anywhere from beginner to advanced
  3. Wheel Pose Variation: Lift one leg up at a time and try to maintain your balance. as you improve you can work on staightining your leg.
  4. Wheel Pose Variation: work on walking your hands and feet together, stratining your legs, and then just work on walking around in wheel to feel more comfortable. (as seen here)
  5. Wild Thing: from wheel work on lifting up opposite hands and legs till you find balance. This is considered an intermediate pose.
  6. Wheel Pose Variation/Half King Pigeon: starting from wheel bring your legs down onto the ground. This transition may feel uncomfortable at first but will improve naturally over time.
  7. King pigeon: Continuing from half king pigeon bend your back up towards the sky and work on reaching for your toes and then your ankles.
  8. Pigeon pose: coming into a half split where your knee is bent at around 35 degree angle. Then get comfortable there as this is basic pigeon pose. the next level would be to twist sideways slightly, lift up your leg and grab it with your elbow with your hands placed on your head. see here. Then for a more advanced back bend twist back forwards and work on grabbing your foot with your hands while your arms create a triangle pointing upwards.

No one is watching you. No one cares if you succeed or fail. This is for you no one else. The sooner you realize this, the sooner you will succeed.

Queue the “ur fat” and the “what the hell happened to you?” anons, but you know, honesty is the best policy.
The cold hard truth is that I don’t look good in a bathing suit. No sugar coating. I look like shit. But no one starts off perfect.
I present you with April 2013

You do not look like shit, you look great. But i am so happy you want to get healthier! :)

 nstead of focusing on the things a healthy lifestyle isn’t or doesn’t include or discourages, focus on the things you gain, the things you CAN and SHOULD say yes to. These are just a few of the things I say yes to, what will you say yes to with your healthy lifestyle? :)

Here’s a test:

I’m holding a baby in one hand and a petri dish holding a fetus in the other.

I’m going to drop one. You chose which.

If you really truly believe a fetus is the same thing as a baby, it should be impossible for you to decide. You should have to flip a coin, that’s how impossible the decision should be.

Shot in the dark, you saved the baby.

Because you’re aware there’s a difference.

Now admit it

woah.
