I’m not a hoarder, depressed, or physically disabled, either; this is just what happens when you’re a slob with ADD, too much stuff, and not enough storage space. T_T
I have gotten it clean in the recent past, though! It just… has yet to stick. I keep trying (although having my first ever full-time job throws yet another wrench into the works).
I think this photoset makes a really important point: everyone is starting from somewhere different. Your “after” may look like someone else’s “before.” Someone else’s “before” may look like what you aspire to. And that’s totally fine. Your goal should always be to make your living space better for you, not to compete with or feel discouraged by where anyone else is at in the process.
Not everyone submits before and afters, so I can promise you that there are people reading this whose “befores” look just like yours. I’ve consulted on helping with spaces that the owners were too embarrassed to post pictures of. Everyone is at a different stage in the process. Don’t use other people as a measure of your progress. That’s why I love before and afters; it shows the improvement in your own space due to your own efforts.
My befores look pretty much just like that.
Here is a list of the challengers so far!
If I missed you, please let me know! And remember, there’s still time to join, so post those pictures, tag ‘em and let’s get going!
I am actually taking a day off! Well no, I went and did photography assistant stuff but that was only 2 hours so whatever. I’ve eaten well today, and the last few days, actually! But I haven’t been so great with exercise or water intake, which is crucial for success.
I’m off again tomorrow and go back to the hotel on Thursday. So I think tomorrow I’m going to clean up my room, but first thing is going to be heading to the gym to get in a jog.
I made spaghetti squash lasagna the other night and it was seriously some mindblowing stuff.
Also, I’ve been really good about staying off the scale! I will wait until Sunday :)
I remember when I first started using my tumblr as a ‘fitblr,’ (it was originally just for posting before and afters to #UfYH), I had a list of all these things I was going to do. Get up at a certain time every day, specific exercises, what I was going to eat, how much water I’d have, etc. Then I was even coming up with all these weird points ideas/rewards…
It really wasn’t until the jeans challenge that I REALLY started working for it. seeing the progress was really wonderful.

Back in 2009, me and my buddy Luke went to Kmart to buy me some new clothes. I got these with the intention of fitting into them one day, but I didn’t actually fit into them when I bought them. They fit even less now than they did when I first bought them, so to keep them from being wasted money, I need to get into them!
My plan for these 8 weeks is healthier eating and exercise! I will be more specific on my other posts!
This would have been more meaningful if it had come from someone besides the straight, white man. You know, like the lady two people over.
Seriously? Seriously, people? Shut the fuck up. Because he is a white straight man making an effort to gather support for equal rights he is unworthy? That his support is nothing? Or that it’s not good enough for him to support equal rights? Get your slick stinky underwear out of your ass crack and stop being so stupid. I’ve heard macklemore get so much shit today for FUCKING SUPPORTING equal rights! He is a straight white man using his privilege in a correct and respectful way and people seem to have a problem with that?! You’re fucking kidding me. So if he just decided to suck someone’s dick the day before, would his support finally mean something?! Man, shut the hell up people. This is support right here, and in the mainstream media.
/end motherfucking rant
reblogging this a million times
do you even understand how much shit macklemore gets because people think he’s gay? do you understand that they kept passing the microphone to her but she didnt want to speak? do you understand that if you’re straight, you can support same sex marriage? because you can. just because he’s straight doesn’t mean his support doesn’t matter. do you get how amazing it is to have a song like this played on the radio? things like this dont hapoen often, and the fact that the same straight goofball who sang “thrift shop” can write something so beautiful like this is amazing. in fact, i think it is fucking amazing that this man is using his speech time to talk about gay rights. he almost forgot to thank his fiancé because he cared about this cause so much. do you know what taylor swift did? fucking insulted her ex. macklemore used his minute and a half (maybe less) of speech time to stand up for what he believe, to stand up for love, to stand up for his family. and you think that just because he’s straight it isn’t valid? that makes you just as close minded as homophobic people in my opinion.
I will never ever not reblog this. Ever.
Beggars can’t be choosers. You should accept support from anyone who gives it to you, because it’s not always easy to get it. You’re as bad as the people against gay marriage if you think straight people can’t offer up help to your cause.
Ugh yes, I can’t STAND when white males try to understand or speak out against the plight of anyone who might fall under the heading of a minority.
So, tell me more about how we should all have equal rights and respect regardless of gender, orientation, skin color, religion, etc.
This is the before and after of my butt progress from June-today.
I was doing 50-100 squats daily for a couple of weeks.
I am 5’4” and I weight 140 pounds, the before photo was 143, so not much of a difference.
WHY DOES IT ONLY LET YOU CLICK THE HEART ONE TIME I NEED TO CLICK IT 200000 TIMES.

Thank you to everyone who commented on my last entry about being up to 208. I wish I could reply to everyone individually. I like tumblr but I wish it was more like LiveJournal in many ways. I’m an LJ junky, even after 11 years.
Anyway… Starting on Sunday… JEANS CHALLENGE. I really liked the challenge vannygetsfit ran. It was a lot of fun and really was helping me and I know it was helping others too. I’m rudely going to go and copy everything from her (giving her credit, of course) and start another for December!
