survival of the fittest
5'1, vegetarian, ex-smoker, runner. living with chronic migraines/vision loss and training for my first half marathon.
40+ lbs lost since 2012
Same dress! About 3 years apart.

Weight loss issues: I went from a 36D to a 34B. Yes, this is going to happen. 

Another side effect? The picture doesn’t really do it justice but since I quit smoking & stopped eating crap, my hair is shiny, bouncy, and healthy again too. Yay :)

#1. Fuck mosquitos


I’ve already reblogged this but always good to bring it round again :)


idk man it just makes me so so so sad when you’re watching a cutiepie talk about their passion like when they light up and start bubbling over with words and then all of a sudden they stop themselves and say stuff like “sorry, i know this is boring” or “sorry i just got excited”

like you know somewhere in their life someone they respected told them “shut up nobody cares” and ever since they can’t talk about their favorite things without apologizing every 5 seconds

I owe my body an apology. 

I’ve been mean to her lately, and not realizing how much she does for me. No matter what happens, she shows up to the plate every day.

I hope you are proud as shit, this is fantastic!

This is how I know I’m old: I know every song from 1993 but only about half from 2013.
