Go Becky Go

I'm Becky, 24 year old Florida native living in Colorado. Marathon runner trying to get back into running. I like to lift, and am currently working on "getting back on the wagon" for weight loss. I originally started this blog and lost 25 pounds and kept it off for a long time, then life happened and I'm up higher than my original starting weight. I do Crossfit, also. And I love Harry Potter.

This is not a weight loss blog, it's my blog and I talk about whatever I want including weight loss and food and boys and running and drinking and lots of pictures of myself. I have little to no filter when it comes to the things I say, I am kinda opinionated, so sometimes I'm awkward, but I'm pretty awesome.

Height: 5'2"

HW: 191 lbs

LW: 142 lbs (Sept/2011)

CW: 184.4 lbs (6/2/14)

Goal: to run fast and be healthy.

I love talking to new people, so if you have any questions just ask!
Women hear it all the time from men. “You’re overreacting,” we tell them. “Don’t worry about it so much, you’re over-thinking it.” “Don’t be so sensitive.” “Don’t be crazy.” It’s a form of gaslighting — telling women that their feelings are just wrong, that they don’t have the right to feel the way that they do. Minimizing somebody else’s feelings is a way of controlling them. If they no longer trust their own feelings and instincts, they come to rely on someone else to tell them how they’re supposed to feel.

Happy birthday (yesterday) to my boyfriend John!

For his birthday I bought him a headboard for our bed because I talked him into buying a nice new bed but the one I picked didn’t come with one and it’s been annoying losing pillows to the crevice between the wall and the bed.

Above are some pictures my niece took and snapchatted that came out really good.

At work selfie, I bought a curling wand and used it today, I like it! Was able to use it even with my hair not having been straightened.

The curling wand I got was recommended by beckles, so props to her for recommending it!

This may have turned into a dog blog. Sorry not sorry. It’s my life at the moment.

Luna is adorable. Bottom picture is me with her and her “cousin” Q-tip at my sister’s house.

Currently she has stopped eating, I’m thinking because of the bath we gave her on Thursday combined with the multiple car rides we’ve made her go on to get her used to the car. She’s terrified of car rides. We’re going to try and give her different food and see if that helps.

I will be giving a health update soon!

Trip to the dog park today! Luna loved it!

Having a dog, especially an anxious, rescued adult larger dog, is going to be a much bigger task than I ever could have expected.

Luna slept on our bed once the second night she was here, and as she has come out of her shell more and more the more things are going wrong. We walk her all the time to TRY to make sure she doesn’t get destructive.

-My boyfriend is allergic to her. We won’t give her up or anything because of this, but he’s going to need allergy shots because even with two zyrtecs a day he is breaking out in a hardcore rash all over.

-She is not leash trained and it’s super hard to walk her because she stops wherever she wants.

-We decided she can’t sleep in the bed anymore, because with more research we learned that’s bad especially with a dog that is not trained yet. So I tried to crate her while I went to Denver for a couple of hours (3 hours total is how long I was gone), and I come home to the above. Except for Luna was on the bed (I live in a studio apartment). She shit and pissed in the bed.

-last night when I made her get off the bed and she was laying on the floor beside me she chewed through my phone charger and extension cord that I had connected to it. Luckily they still work because she didn’t go all the way through.

-She broke out of the crate last time we tried to put her in there too, which is why in the above picture you see all the zip ties on the crate. She found a weakness in the loop of one of the hooks and pushed herself out, and then after she did that she jumped on our small dining table, knocked over our porcelain giant water dispenser and somehow broke the curtains, now we can’t tilt them or open them.

Wow, listing all this was a lot. She had been coming out more and has been great with being social with other dogs and people when we walk her, and she’s pretty sweet, but holy shit this is hard. We’re going to need a trainer.

Advice and tips are welcome!

I have to say, I never grew up with dogs. In fact, I was terrified of them until the ripe age of 16.

But now I am starting to understand dog people. I never understood the “hey I got a new dog wanna see?” Fully until now.

So my Luna had not peed or pooped since she’s been here. We took her to the surgery center where she was spayed at the humane society and the vet took a look. Incision and everything looks fine, but apparently it’s Luna’s anxiety that made her not want to pee and poo. They gave her some doggy valium, and 5 minutes later she went all over the floor.

They sent us home with some more pain meds for her, antibiotics for an upper respiratory infection, and trazodone for anxiety. We had to carry her in and out of the car she was so out of it. I love her so much! Picture above is her riding away on the valium train when we took her home.

Meet Luna (Lovegood)! She’s our new 3 year old German Shepard mix we got from the humane society!

It was love at first sight! She is pretty timid, but hopefully with time she will open up! She got spayed today and has hated her cone of shame, she took it off after an hour! Don’t know what we’re going to do, she’s supposed to have it on for a week! And she hasn’t peed since she got here, though I’ve read it may be normal from the surgery and it may come tomorrow.. so excited!

When people say ‘This is my baby,’ they don’t always mean a baby. Sometimes they mean a dog.

1. Because a woman brought into this world will inevitably be given pepper spray “just in case.”

2. Because by sixteen, a young girl knows how to avoid being sexually assaulted, while a boy of the same age does not fear sexual assault in the slightest.

3. Because a girl who mocks men is a bitch, and a boy who mocks women is joking.

4. Because a girl who has sex is a slut, and a boy who has sex is a man.

5. Because in a murder, the killer is at fault, but the blame of rape is often put on the victim.

6. Because we teach girls how not to get raped instead of teaching anyone simply not to rape.

7. Because a woman should put more clothes on if her outfit makes a man uncomfortable, because his self control is her responsibility.

8. Because feminists just need to chill out.

9. Because a 22 year old sex-obsessed virgin can murder 7 people, and the problem is that someone should’ve just slept with him.

10. Because not all men are predators, but yes, all women are prey.






girls think having a period sucks but try having to fix your penis discreetly through your pocket 

having the insides of your organs shed and come out through your genitals does not compare to having displaced balls sorry

none of you can do it discreetly anyways

we see you

everyone sees you

Random things.

Picture of me: I got up this morning at like 4:30 for a 5:15 spin class at my gym and then lifted a bit. I had not done a spin class in over a year, I wanted to die! Then I did front squats and shoulder presses, not fun!

Look how pretty my salad is. Yay salad.

Last two pictures are from Friday night, I went to a concert at Red Rocks Amphitheater and it was amazing, saw Flux Pavilion with my friend Wes. The pictures don’t do that place justice.

What is willpower? I’ve been walking past this plate all day and not taken anything. I ate ONE cookie this morning but that has been it. There were more cookies on this plate earlier, too..
