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!

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..

What I remember most about emotional abuse is that it’s like being put in a box. How you end up in there is the biggest trick – I never managed to work that one out. Maybe you think it’s a treasure box at first: you’re in there because you’re special. Soon the box starts to shrink. Every time you touch the edges there is an “argument”. So you try to make yourself fit. You curl up, become smaller, quieter, remove the excessive, offensive parts of your personality – you begin to notice lots of these. You eliminate people and interests, change your behaviour. But still the box gets smaller. You think it’s your fault. The terrible, unforgivable too-muchness of you is to blame. You don’t realise that the box is shrinking, or who is making it smaller. You don’t yet understand that you will never, ever be tiny enough to fit, or silent enough to avoid a row

In the original pilot for Bob’s Burgers, Mintz’s character was a teenage boy. That fundamental difference aside, Daniel Belcher and Tina Belcher are the same character—but looking back, that choice had enormous implications for the show, because a TV audience has never seen a girl growing up like this. She’s nothing like an archetypal teen, but she’s also unmistakably one. She daydreams about kissing her crushes—and also about touching the butts of all the cute boys in her class. She fantasizes about being a prettier, bolder version of herself, who talks politics with adults and is an object of affection among the guys at Wagstaff School. Her efforts in this direction lead her to hide in the dairy section of a grocery store in season three’s “Lindapendent Woman,” waiting for a handsome boy to stop by. In season four’s “Turkey In A Can,” she shows up to Thanksgiving dinner wearing baggy pantyhose and too-big high heels. Puberty and dating have a typical arc on shows about teenage girls, but Tina’s arc on Bob’s Burgers is something else entirely. It’s gross. It’s messy. It occasionally encourages threesomes. And it’s hilarious, but the show is careful to never make Tina the butt of any jokes. (Tina touching butts, however, is okay.) If the viewer is laughing, it’s most likely with Tina—or at the very least, with the people who love her.
