When I was younger, I used to be bullied. Not in the physical way - I would never get hurt or anything like that after entering middle-school, but in the way that I was extremely lonely and looked down at. I was that weird kid, you know. Doesn't seem too harmful - there's a "weird kid" in every class. Well you don't know how hard it is to be just that.

You don't have to be a target for violence or have any weird "faults" which are enhanced by bullies to be suicidal. I would know, because all that took for me to become suicidal was to be the "weird kid". Nobody even noticed I was screaming for help on the inside, so, you may now try to imagine how the children which are being bullied to the breaking point might feel. I know you've seen them. They are the ones who sit by themselves pretty much all the time., they walk with their heads down, trying to avoid everyone's judgmental looks. Sometimes they get beat, sometimes their bodies are spared, and they are let off the hook with just a handful of downgrading words.

Time to time, there are these stories on my timeline on Facebook about another child who has committed suicide. People freak out and ask themselves how this could ever happen. "An innocent child - lost, for nothing.", "Darn those bullies!", "This has to stop!" Of course I agree, it's absolutely terrible, but I'm still quite irritated by how chocked people seem, when there are several thousands of children thinking about doing the very same thing, right now, because nobody sees them. I'm talking about those who are severely bullied, the ones that are sitting by themselves, the weird kids, the ones who seem fine, but they're just covering their scars up with long sleeved shirts.

Open your eyes people,. The time is ticking. I can guarantee that there's someone right now sitting in their room, on a toilet, on the floor somewhere, just wishing to be dead - and you don't have to be deploring their deaths, because you can prevent this. You just have to open your eyes, open your heart and take action. Get in between. Be nosy. If you see someone getting nasty comments somewhere on the internet, be there for the one who's been exposed. If you hear someone yelling something rude to someone, enhance the beauty in the victims character, prove the bully wrong. Don't be afraid to get in there and help. For someone who is bullied, it means the difference between life and death. 

Children today might just as well walk to school with a gun. Their words are like bullets. So if someone would walk in to your school with a gun, would you take action, or would you leave the children to their destiny and hope for the best? If you want to be a lifesaving hero, this is the best chance you get. Do what you can to save the children's lives.

...Go outside with a shaker, and everybody loses their minds."

In today's society it's more accepted to tell people you just binged till you threw up than to say that you worked out till you threw up, because that would just be unhealthy. It's more acceptable for a guy to show of his abs than a girl to show of hers, because that would just be like "asking for it". It's more acceptable when guys have huge muscles than when girls have huge muscles.

I don't understand how people can find this normal? How did unhealthy and obese get more accepted than being healthy and strong? How did I do wrong for doing the same thing as the boys do? Why do I have to feel afraid to enter the weightlifting area? It feels like just the fact that I'm trying to stay fit by lifting weights and drinking proteinshakes makes me more and more unaccepted by society, like I'm just a stuck up girl thinking I'm all special for doing something good to my body, or even worse - I'm another girl ruining my body, trying to make it look "bulky" and manly. That is not the case, and I think this world needs to change how they see fit girls. 

We are the ones doing good to our health, the ones that are respecting our bodies, the ones that are neutering our lives to live longer and happier. How is that so wrong? It's my lifestyle, just like any other lifestyle, and I shouldn't be afraid to bring my shaker out in public because people might be thinking that I'm a "healthfreak". Maybe I am, but am I calling all the people with weight issues "fatfreaks"? Nuh uh!

How is showing our muscles bragging and provoking when it's obvious that we've worked hard to get to this point? To me, it's no more than taking pride, and if that's not alright to you, then don't you dare take pride for your children in the future, because they're a reflection of you, and then you'd be bragging. Do you see how ridiculous it sounds? Nothing in this life comes easy, and if you want to show the world that you did something good despite the setbacks, then you should be able to - because that is what makes a role model, and we need a loooot more of those! The fact that some guys may find bellies sexy is certainly not my problem. Some people find feet sexy, and  I'm not wearing shoes on the beach.

How are girls less entitled to a strong and healthy body than guys are? We need it just as much as you do in today's society. Men aren't our protectors anymore - we are our own protectors and I feel really good about that, because that means that I can finally be independent, safe on the streets and brave on my own. Can't I just be allowed to trust my own strength for once? Can I please be allowed to stand on my own two feet and show the world that I can do this!

I'm not saying that I don't value men anymore, I'm not saying that overweight people are wrong and unworthy of taking pride of their bodies or that I can't be brave without muscles. I'm just saying that I have the right to take pride of my body in the same way that men do, I have the right to be healthy in public because that's just my lifestyle, and I have the right to get as bulky as I want, because that's what makes me feel happy and powerful and independent.

Is that so wrong?

Ååh, det är ju så sjuukt! Började min bikini fitness resa för ca 5 dagar sedan, och jag kan inte tro mina ögon när jag vaknar på morgonen! Efter 4 dagar hade jag redan tappat 2 cm runt magen, 0.5 cm runt låren och (tyvärr) 3 cm runt rumpan. Hur sjukt är inte det? Och inte nog med det - jag har också lyckats få fram mina abs utan att stå med axlarna vid öronen och blåsa ut all luft i hopp om att se smalare ut. 

Det faktum att det ens går att bli i bättre form på under en vecka är helt out of this world enligt mig, trots att jag måste bidra med mycket blod, svett och tårar.

För en timme sedan vaknade jag, och nu gör jag mig redo för ett tvåtimmars pass för rumpa och mage. Känner verkligen att jag har lite att ta ikapp med träningen, efter ungefär en vecka av "slacking". Har varken ätit rätt eller tränat rätt. Tror det har lite med jobbet att göra - verkligen helt utmattande! Så det är dags att ta sig i kragen nu. Min preworkout (hemoPUMP-rekommenderas!) hjälper som vanligt.

  • Förberedde mig för ett maffig frukost i morse tills jag insåg att vi inte hade bröd, frukt, müsli eller något liknande. Fick istället bli en lite mer kreativ frukost, så jag gjorde i ordning ett par proteinbars. Riktigt mättande och lyckade skulle jag vilja påstå!


  • Recept:
  • 32 g chocolate whey protein powder
  • 30 g havregryn
  • 3 gram flytande sötningsmedel (jag använde stevia)
  • 3 bitar mörk, hackad choklad
  • 2 matskedar jordnötssmör
  • 2.5 msk vatten
  • Såhär gör du:
  • Rör ihop alla ingredienser (vattnet sist), forma som bars på ett bakpapper och ställ in i frysen i 10 min. Du kan strö på lite kokos innan du ställer in dem i frysen. Busenkelt!
