Hello dear person reading this,

My name is Elina and I'm 18 years old. I had a tumblr for a long time and never did something with it (I KNOW.). Not until may 2012. I was already busy with losing weight and had already lost 15 kg (32 lbs), when, out of curiosity, I searched the tag ''fitness'' on here. I found fitblrs and motivational pics, recipes and work outs. I decided to turn my blog into a fitblr.

After the summer of 2012, everything went downhill for me. I did not like my education, I gained weight and binged a lot. I stopped working out, which I never should have done because I loved working out. I gained everything back and more.

And now we're at the end of 2013; In January of 2014 I'm starting again. I learned a lot in 2 years. I learned what works for me and what doesn't. My goal is to lose 20 kg by July and to run a 5k in May, but mostly to solve all the problems in my head.

I want to call this blog a lifeblr now; I will try to post personal things & what's going on in my head here. Also I'm a fan of BBC Sherlock, Doctor Who and I love animals, body positivity, self care and movies, so you'll see some of that too.

If you read this till the end you're an angel! Send me an ask if you want to talk to me/ask me something. :)

do u ever do something mildly impolite like not give a nice goodbye or not hold a door and spend the rest of the day thinking about it

100% of people who tell you you’re too sensitive are saying it because they don’t want to be held responsible for your reaction when they mistreat you

I don’t watch the show but I don’t care, this is AWESOME

I’m pretty sure they had this video deleted from youtube, because it used to be there, and then one day I was looking for it to show to someone, and it was nowhere to be found. It will however live on in gifs forever.

The blond chick is just leaning back grinning and the other girl is getting excited and then there’s just the dude in the middle going

For my FAQ: How do I start lifting?
First of all, men and women can do the same workouts perfectly fine (if you are worried about getting bulky, read the next question). If you want results from lifting, you should be lifting heavy (=challenging).
Using the machines at the gym can be good enough, especially for beginners, but in the long run you should strive towards learning free-weight, mainly compound movements (deadlifts, squats etc). Remember to learn the correct form before you start adding too much weight. If you need inspiration or instructions for exercises, see above.
If you feel intimidated by the weights room at the gym, read my post How to be more confident in the gym.
For a beginner, it’s best to do a full body workout every time (one exercise for each body part), or a split between lower and upper body.
Rep ranges:
1-5 reps for strength (1-10sets)
8-12 reps for hypertrophy (building muscle) (3-4 sets)
15+ reps for endurance and low-mid intensity cardio (8-12 reps builds endurance just as well)
Use weights you find challenging, while still being able to perform the exercise with proper form.
Remember rest days are as important as workout days, especially when you are starting out, because you will get very sore at first. Tag: ‘Rest’.
Being sore after a workout doesn’t necessarily mean it was a good workout - No pain no gain is a lie. Tag: ‘DOMS' 
If you want to gain muscle, you also need to be eating right; adequate protein intake + good fats, carbs for energy, and a calorie surplus.
Bonus tip: Don’t go for workouts in the typical magazines for women only (like this). They are not effective (in 9 out of 10 cases) - you have to challenge yourself.
Helpful post: How to make a strength training plan (and keep at it), How to be more confident in the gym
Tag: ‘Lifting Beginner’, ‘Lifting Benefits’, ‘DOMS’

OMFG EVERYTHING I TELL EVERYONE SUMMED UP FUCKING BLESS YOU!!!!!!!!!! <3

Whaaaat! Thank you! ❤️

I keep thinking oh man, I’m so immature. How am I allowed to be an adult.

Then I spend time with teenagers.

And it’s like, wow, okay, yeah. I am an adult. I am so adult. Look at me adulting all over the place.
