skinny!!


 
 
Skinny fat ( adjective ): to appear skinny, but feel soft. Someone who is naturally thin but doesn’t ever work out. On the site, Urban Dictionary, they state ‘skinny fat’ means “to look slim, even with revealing clothes, but when touched, the touching hand sinks into fat before reaching the muscle.”
 
My Fitness Pal says “skinny fat is having a normal BMI but an obese level of body fat percentage. Studies have found that approximately 29% of people with average BMI fall into the ‘skinny fat’ definition.
 
After researching the controversial topic, I’ve come to the following conclusions:
 
Anyone who thinks ‘skinny fat’ is fine, may as well be smoking crack.
 
Skinny fat is bad.bad.bad. I mean, really!! Wake up! Just because someone’s skinny doesn’t mean they’re healthy!
 
Puhhhh-lease.
 
Get real: if you eat like shit, you feel like shit, & eventually you’ll look like shit.
 
 
So. If you fall in to the ‘skinny fat’ category how can you fix it?
 
Duh! The old fashion way: clean eating, drinking tons of water, cutting back on rubbish, & obviously- EXERCISE!
 
Because honestly? If you’re already thin to begin with, don’t you want to be the best, toned version of yourself?
Don’t forget: 80% of success is showing up!!! See you at the gym ; )

period.

 
 
Let’s talk periods.
 
 
It shouldn’t be some top secret, taboo, hush-hush topic. I mean, if you’re a female you’re most likely a member ( or retired member ) of the super fun menstrual club.
 
 
Here’s the deal: Aunt Flow causes cramps, irritation, & the world’s worst bloat. After researching WTF to eat for an easier period, this is what I came up with:
 
 
1.} Lentils: they’ll help to perk you up when energy levels are low. Lentils contain lots of fiber which alleviates bloating.
 
2.} Cilantro: yes, indeed. Add cilantro to your fresh AM juice. It’s the best natural anti-inflammatory ever!
 
3.} Walnuts, flax seeds, chia seeds, almonds: a great source of omega-3 fatty acids! Also, wild salmon is fab too. These contain Vit B-6 which helps relieve premenstrual cravings & exhaustion.
 
 
4.} Water: just.drink.it. Add a few squeezes of lemon because it’s wonderful for pesky, period pimples.
 
 
5.} Green veggies: because duh…? When are vegetables NOT amazing to eat? They’re high in calcium, magnesium, & potassium which relieve cramps & bloat.
 
 
6.} Watermelon: this fruit’s my jam. I love, love, love sliced watermelon when it’s my time of the month. It contains tons of water & it’s a natural diuretic.
 
 
7.} Pineapple: this contains high levels of bromelain, an enzyme that relaxes muscles & prevents cramping. MY FAVORITE FRUIT! but do be weary those of you that suffer with IBS, pineapple is acidic and can have a bad effect on the body.
 
 
8.} Tea: ginger tea relieves stomach pains! I like to add fresh ginger to my green tea.
So step away from the sugary shit & eat foods that will help alleviate symptoms & sickie bloating!
 
 
Other tips:
1.} Stay the F away from sugar. If you have to eat some sugs, grab dark chocolate. It’s full of antioxidants.
 
2.} Workout, peeps. If you move your body it will help with cramps. Stretching is great too!
Good luck : )!
 
Oh! And P.S. guys don’t get it- they’ll never get it ( they understand periods like they understand multi-tasking..HA!! ). So save the bitching for your girlfriends.

back to basics!!!

Hi everyone, I am back again, I'm so sorry for my long period of absence, my hectic life is no excuse to stop blogging.

Firstly I would like to say thank you to everyone that views this page, I logged on after a very very long time and was pleasantly surprised to see that the fabfitfun blog has 27 884 views!! THANK YOU everyone.
 
and secondly I would like to say that I have been very busy with exams so I did not have time to blog at all. BUT exams are over... and now IM BACK!!!
 
I am very ashamed to say that for the last few months, April may and June, my eating habits have become ridiculously atrocious, That can be seen by the pictures I have been posting on the facebook page 'fabulous fit and fun' , I have eaten whatever I wanted, when I wanted and how much I wanted without taking into account what will happen to my body, but now that exams are over and I am back to blogging, I will definitely definitely be more gracious about what I eat and I will be back at the gym punishing myself for eating more than my body mass.
 
So to those of you who are in the same predicament as me, we can be healthy together and eat only good and wholesome foods. After such a bad few months of eating , its become habit to eat badly so we have to go back to basics and start fresh, learning self control and restraint.
 
GOOD LUCK!!!
