yes, sadly it is completely normal for sweat to collect between your boobs! (notice the dark spot on the bottom of my sports bra) if this happens to you, ensure your skin’s health by remembering to exfoliate this area super well in the shower!

dig.

When I was at the mental hospital for a suicide threat, I had a roommate named Marissa. She was about twelve or thirteen. She loved to talk. Talked and talked non stop about her dogs and her home life and her anger issues. We had an hour or so of quiet time, and I would always sit and listen to her talk and tell me stories. When she wasn’t talking, she was singing Dig by Incubus. She was so excited to go home to listen to that song again. There would be nights where she couldn’t sleep, so she would quietly hum the chorus to herself. I would listen. In April I stayed three days and there’s rarely I day I go without thinking about my experience there. I’ve been thinking about Marissa, Jordan, Jessica, Issac, all the kids I was in the hospital with a lot since I was discharged. I missed them. I needed them. They may need me. We stuck together and me and Jessica grew very close in an extremely short time. These kids at the hospital have impacted me so much. We knew all of us were screwed up and damaged, and somehow that brought us together closer than I thought possible. But Marissa stood out to me. I miss her more than anyone. I want to see her and know how she’s doing. I never heard Dig before, and for so long i’ve associated it with her. Right now I’m listening to it for the first time and sobbing. As soon as the first notes came on, I burst out crying. Marissa, Marissa, I miss you… I hope you’re okay. I love you. You loved me. You helped me see through different eyes. I need you. More than you could ever imagine. 

abs really burned post workout! I’ll drink extra water and try to consume more nutrients to allow my muscles to properly hear from tonight’s intense exercises !! (:

its good to take progress pics but its also good to take pics that show your progress

** a progress pic is a picture taken at a certain time of day, in a specific place and lighting, after you poop - the time and place of the picture are recorded so you can plan your next progress pic (approx 10 days later)**

what to pack&keep in a gym bag

  • undies and a pair of socks (just in case)
