You can’t put health in a box. You can’t put a calorie count on it, or a specific work out, or quantify hours at the gym. You can’t find it on a scale because at the end of the day, what is healthy is individualized. It’s what makes you feel best. It’s whatever size you are, it’s what makes your body and spirit and mind happy. What is healthy is being yourself and giving your body its proper respect.
I strongly encourage you all (if you have a smart phone) to download the Charity Miles app. It donates money every mile you walk, run, or bike and it’s probably the most motivating thing I have found yet. My life revolves around doing work to help others and this is so awesome!! You get to choose from a variety of charities each time and not only are you helping others but you’re donating and supporting some great causes by helping yourself :) And trust me you’ll want to run more than a couple miles each time so it’s truly amazing! SPREAD THE WORD!
Any Fitblrs from Adelaide, Australia?
If you are, like or reblog this or let me know so I can follow you?
reblogging for my bby
PUBLIC FITBLR(really for any and everyone) ANNOUNCEMENT: IF YOU ARE UNDER THE AGE OF 18 THIS POST IS MOSTLY FOR YOU!!!
PLEASE STOP POSTING PHOTOS OF YOURSELF IN YOUR UNDIES (this includes bras or LACK-thereof).
Because it’s technically ILLEGAL. Yes, I said it: ILLEGAL! Without realizing it those of you under the age of 18 are technically distributing “Child Pornography.” Every state has different laws concerning this however all states have laws.
Before you question the validity of this post you should know that my SENIOR SEMINAR PAPER WAS ON Law and Policy concerning this exact topic. SO many of you have no idea what you are doing when you post pictures of yourself in your panties. Seriously.
Here’s a hypothetical situation that posting your PROGRESS PICTURES OF YOURSELF IN YOUR UNDIES CAN GET YOU INTO:
- A sexual predator stumbles upon your photos.
- then goes through all of tumblr and finds more young girls posting their essentially nude pictures.
- he gets caught because the government has a program that tracks this sort of activity. Yep, they do. The US Marshalls have a computer program that can track “pings” of how many times someone searches for inappropriate things on the internet.
I’m pretty sure that they had me on a watch list while I was doing my mass research on the topic in college….
- The Gov’t tracks down the source of the photo and that can actually get YOU into trouble…
WHY? Because YOU are distributing “child pornography.” While it may be unintentional, you still did.
- The police can arrest you and put serious charges on you and if/when convicted you will have the “Sexual Predator” label attached to you. That’s not what any of you want!
YES THIS POST IS MEANT TO PUT YOU AMAZING YOUNG LADIES ON ALERT. THERE’S A REASON I NEVER POST THINGS IN MY UNDIES. I’M TRYING TO SET AN EXAMPLE FOR YOU. I MAY BE 23 BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN I’M GOING TO POST PICTURES LIKE THAT BECAUSE I KNOW WHAT THOSE ACTIONS CAN LEAD TO!
I never want to see any of you get hurt or in trouble for something. We all need to work together to support each other! Not just in fitness! But out everyday lives too! I really should have posted something about this a while ago but here it is. BETTER LATE THAN NEVER!
I DON’T WANT ANY OF YOU TO GET IN TROUBLE OR BECOME A VICTIM OF ANYTHING. I WANT EVERY ONE OF YOU TO REACH YOUR GOALS AND BECOME EVEN MORE AMAZING BUT PLEASE TRY NOT TO POST PICTURES OF YOURSELF IN YOUR UNDIES.
I told mister about this post and even he agrees: “Yeah. Sports bra and shorts until you hit 18 please.”
FOR THOSE OLDER THAN 18, PLEASE FOLLOW AND HELP ME SET A GOOD EXAMPLE FOR THE YOUNGER ONES ON TUMBLR. THERE IS NO NEED FOR ANY OF US TO BECOME VICTIMS OF SEXUAL PREDATORS.
GUYS ON TUMBLR: HELP ME WITH THIS TOO! THIS IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT EVERYONE NEEDS TO BE AWARE OF.
I’M CHALLENGING EVERYONE TO STICK TO THE SPORTS BRA AND SPANDEX/SHORTS RULE (bathing suits are obviously acceptable…) WHEN POSTING YOUR PROGRESS PICTURES. ACTUALLY LET’S MAKE THAT ALL PICTURES IF POSSIBLE WHEN YOU ARE UNDER 18. THIS IS NOT ONE OF THOSE LAWS THAT NEEDS TO BE BROKEN. IT’S FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY AND WELL-BEING.
AND ONE MORE THING… WE’VE ALLLL HEAR ABOUT SEXTING? AND THE TROUBLE THAT PEOPLE HAVE GOTTEN INTO, TEENS IN PARTICULAR, BY SENDING NAKED PHOTOS OF THEMSELVES…??? YES. OK. THIS DIRECTLY RELATES TO THAT EXACT ISSUE.
I LOVE YOU ALL!
THANK YOU FOR TAKING TIME TO READ THIS AND HOPEFULLY SHARE IT WITH THE REST OF TUMBLR!
I admit, I’ve posted sketchy pictures of myself on here before when I was just starting out with this blog.. Let me tell you, you SHOULDN’T. Especially if you’re underage.
Please think ahead & don’t put yourself in a sticky situation, younger followers.
I see this a bit too often and I am glad someone is pointing it out.
