How to Deal with a Bad Training Session →
It happens to all of us. We all have bad days in the gym. How do we deal with a bad training session? What makes training good or bad? Let’s take a more detailed look.

Today my mom and I went to a gym recently opened by a couple guys who used to go to ours. Besides all the equipment being beautiful and new, the trainers and atmosphere were quite different. They were more encouraging and pushed us during the workout. They made sure to start on time and proceed in a timely manner through the skillwork, which they kept a close eye on and actually helped me...

Now when I look in the mirror (this is embarrassing by the way, I can’t believe I’m admitting this online) I flex instead of sucking in. Now when I pinch my stomach, it’s to feel my abs, not to feel shitty about how much “flab” (real or imaginary) is sitting there. I no longer stare at the “calories burned” display on the elliptical, but how many plates I have on each end of the barbell. I can...

Dinner tonight: I love plantains
I just made this salad and it was amazing. I just can’t get enough plantains. I’m going to have to buy more before the week’s over. Now if I could just not burn them as often, my meals would be positively superb.
I am constantly going back and forth between conflicting insecurities. One day I’ll feel inadequate athletically, not strong enough, think that I should be working harder, lifting more, spending more time at the gym. The next I’ll wish I was more feminine-looking, had a smaller waist, bigger boobs to the point where I actually have thought about giving up crossfit entirely.
Why Women Need Iron →
Women need iron. Not the vitamin. The barbell. We are trained by the world around us to have fucked up ideas about our bodies; iron unfucks them. We are supposed to be as thin as possible, as small as possible, perhaps until we disappear; iron teaches us to take up space. We are taught that the only good direction for the scale to go is down, and to agonize ritualistically when it goes up....

I decided to cut the sugar detox short. It was great the first week and a half, but then I just went to hell in a handbag. I can’t handle it mentally with the stress of all the end of the year things plus my family issues going on right now. It was making me crazy, all I could think about was the food I couldn’t eat. At this point it’s not worth the extra stress. So I decided...
gingerbatch-addict: salaamender: Sometimes I think to myself, “do I really want to buy another chocolate bar?” And then I remember that there is a super volcano under Yellowstone that is 40,000 years overdue and when it erupts it could potentially cover most of north America in ash and create a volcanic winter that kills half the worlds population And I’m like, fuck yeah I want that...
