Food is for White Liberals What Sex Is For The Religious Right

If you tsk-tsk at people who are overweight for what they are eating and claim you’re concerned about their health, yet you’re not actively campaigning to make healthy food more accessible and affordable, your approach is sickening and I don’t want you in my activism.”

Pretty much sums up my view on the matter.

If my boss makes changed to the Aluminum tables once more while I am in the middle of a two week data build, I am going to flip my shit. How am I supposed to get anything finished if you keep changing it?!

Feeling happy in my body today. After about 15 years of war with my body, it is nice to look in the mirror and like what I see. Thanks lifting and feminism.

You’re drunk in a bathtub
with a red cup full of Birthday Cake flavored vodka
wearing a headdress
made of neon Dollar Store chicken feathers.
You’re half naked in a grassy field
with drugstore lipstick smeared under your eyes
dropping acid
and wearing moccasins from Urban Outfitters.
You can’t wait for Coachella
so you can finally smoke a peace pipe in a tepee
and find your Spirit Animal.
You think Native American culture is so beautiful
and clumsily show it with your
hashtags on tumblr and Instagram.
But when actual Indigenous people tell you that
Gypsy, Squaw and Red Injun are all racist slurs
Headdresses are sacred
and war paint on your white face is insulting
You say
“I’m just appreciating your beautiful culture!
I’m 1/16th Cherokee.”
Ignoring the fact that running around
naked in the woods on shrooms
will not connect you with any tribe
and that your great great great great grandmother
along with the rest of the Cherokee people
never wore headdresses.

The cashier at Target saw me buying animal food and asked if I wanted a baby kitten because she had a litter.

And I turned her down. SO MUCH EMOTIONAL TURMOIL.

Apparently, I need to tone down the swole a smidge because I got my upper arms stuck in several short sleeve blouses today and then I couldn’t even button up the sleeves of several other blouses. I don’t even have big arms. They are scrawny noodles.

Well the Ann Taylor Loft Petite Goodwill fairy seems to have flown away. However, she has been replaced by The Limited and Express and Nine West Fairies. 6 blouses, 6 pairs of pants, 1 skirt, and 2 pairs of pumps for $62. Sometimes, being very little has its advantages because there is only like 1 person in the area who wears the same size as you and she has good taste and donates her clothes to the Goodwill.

Man, I am bad at pictures. Manitou Incline a little after 6am. We may have woken up in the middle of the night to make it most of way up for sunrise. We then continued almost 4 miles up the Barr Trail where it was absolutely gorgeous. We saw a fawn and rabbits and beautiful wild flowers next to giant boulders and had a blast shimmying up the sides of rocks. This is why Colorado is the best. #colorado #manitouincline #barryrail #hiking #nofilter

In which I make a family size box of Pasta Roni and plan on eating it all because all I have eaten today is fruit (2 clementines, 2 kiwis), 1 cup cottage cheese, and M&Ms and I am hiking the Mainitou Incline/Barr Trail tomorrow starting at the crack of dawn (or a little before because we want to be at the top of the Incline for sunrise).

Steve Goggins: Deadlift Training Tip

dicy132:

shelby-52kg:

Get you some knowledge, courtesy of my legendary coach, Steve Goggins.

The deadlift is the one exercise that allows you to relax your muscles in between each rep—unlike the bench press and the squat when you’re doing them for reps. Most believe that it’s best to let the weight down fast and concentrate more on the positive upward motion of the lift. And I agree with the fast, positive upward motion; however, you can also train the negative downward movement to be stronger overall, and this will improve speed off the floor and help with a strong lockout.

This is really interesting. I guess I’ve been doing five singles when it gets heavy, not a set of five.

Give this article a read! It’s short and sweet, then watch the video because it demonstrates what Steve means. (Don’t forget he’s 49 in that video)

I’ve tried to explain this tip before, but this article does it justice. It was really hard at first to get in the habit of doing a negative deadlift then a bit longer to figure out how to do it without bouncing. After a few weeks tho, I got it down and my deadlift has gone way up… Not to mention my hamstrings have gotten massive!

I appreciate the Limp Bizkit music.
