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!



i will always find a way out

No, this is why women survive longer than men.

this hurt to look at

actually it’s true. in sociology we learn about the fact that men participate in more risky behavior to prove masculinity and this is a way the patriarchy hurts men and pat of the reason the life expectancy is longer for women

Jesus Christ, I wasn’t going to reblog this but then that last one was just so WHY WOULD YOU that I had to

Asker Anonymous Asks:
When girls go out wearing tiny, tight, skimpy outfits, I mean they have the choice to wear something else. some thing less provocative, so really girls are asking for it.

If you’re out in public and I see you’re not wearing any protective headgear does that give me the right to smash in your skull with a hammer? I mean you asked for it, since you’re not wearing something to protect your head. 

and I’m over it,
I’m over it,
I promise I’m over it.
But it still hurts sometimes.

On Friday marks 6 months since I started CrossFit. While I’ve made progress, I’d like to make more than I did these first 6 months. I’ve made a list of goals and made them “SMART” goals, with time frames and how I’m going to do it:


1. Reach 140 lbs (at about 185 currently)

2. Be able to run more than 3 miles pain free (can’t even do one)

3. Back Squat my bodyweight (1RM is 135?)

4. Perform a strict pullup (using black band currently, can only do 2 with green)

5. Be able to do 20 pushups without modification (can only do 2 right now)

How I will do it:

1. Eat healthy, only go out to eat or have outside food up to 2x a week. Avoid junk snacks. Go to the gym 4 times a week minimum.

2. Work on calf/hip mobility. Strengthen hips and calves and continue working with ortho/PT.

3. Work on squat technique, practice squats outside of Crossfit at least one time a week. Work on hip mobility exercises. Practice “third world squat” as part of mobility.

4. Practice pullups with the band, attempt to decrease compensation needed for pullups. Try jumping pullups/negatives 2x a week.

5. Follow one hundred pushups program, work on form. 3x a week practice outside of class.

When I will do it:

1. By end of October, see the 160s? End of January, 150s or 140s. we’ll see. This isn’t definite, as weight loss can be unpredictable as can I. Final deadline-ish will be next July. Of course, if I see improvement in my strength and whatnot I may change my mind about how I want to look and all that. We will see. I will weigh in once every two weeks as a check, and of course, clothes fitting better will also count more than pounds lost/gained.

2. Can’t give a timeline on this. Gotta go real slow, hoping by end of 2014.

3. January 2015.

4. Green band by end of year, one pullup by July 2015.

5. October 2014. I hope!

Haven’t taken a picture of my food in a while, this was delicious. Sweet potato, two eggs, and an avocado. Yum!

Management installed a new toilet in my apartment! Fancy!

THIS. Dresses are just fancy bags with flowers on them. It’s seriously the laziest thing I could put on but everyone thinks I’m fancy!


People at Old Job thought I was Pentecostal for a long time because I had long hair and wore dresses + skirts so much. Like. You can eat so much more in a dress bc you don’t have a waistband, feel?

And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.

"Why Don’t the Unemployed Get Off Their Couches?" and Eight Other Critical Questions for Americans (via seriouslyamerica)

Yes. Yes. Yes.

I could go on for days, but this quote sums it up nicely. You look
at these minimum wage jobs with zero benefits, and people are still saying over and over that there should be no health care reform. At all.

Aside from the fact that these jobs don’t even allow workers to heat their homes, pay for housing and transportation, and put put food on the table. These jobs don’t even want to give the most basic of healthcare.

Things have to change. I am not sure how, but I just don’t understand how Americans can watch their fellow man suffer in this terrible market and compete for jobs that are only short term solutions.

Also, fuck wal-mart. (via meesharose)
