neva-gets-fit

Hey, I'm Neva! I'm 20 years old and currently live in Colorado, USA. In the fall of 2013 I decided to take my fitness seriously, and have since lost a little over 20 lbs. I decided to start this blog in the hopes of finding inspiration as I continue on in the fit life, as well as to inspire and encourage others! Here you will find ramblings on my fitness journey along with some intermittent posts about feelings, love, and life in general. Taking it one day at a time!

my progress!

HW: 152 lbs. CW: 130 lbs. GW: 120 lbs.

    "It is illegal for women to go topless in most cities, yet you can buy a magazine of a woman without her top on at any 7-11 store. So, you can sell breasts, but you cannot wear breasts, in America. "

    This is one of my favorite quotes about sexualization/objectification vs autonomy of female bodies bc it’s so succinct

    I just see myself sitting here and getting bitter and more depressed and having these shitty, bitchy thoughts and I don’t know what to do about it. But I fucking hate it. I don’t want to be like this. I don’t want to be this type of person. I want to be happy, and cheerful, and smiling all the time. I don’t want to bring everyone I care about down with my moods and my shitty feelings. I want everyone to feel lifted up and more excited when I walk into a room.

    how to change

    lift-like-a-girl:

On the left: 134 lbs. eating 800-1000 cals a day. No energy, tired, and dizzy all the time. I was doing the 30 day shred and never touched a weight in my life. I lost 40lbs and thought I was being healthy. Yet I still wanted to lose some more weight. Scary, right?
On the right: around 160lbs (don’t use the scale anymore). Mostly lifting, and minimal cardio. Eating around 1800-2000 cals a day. Strong, confident, HAPPY, and love my body!

Salad with roasted butternut squash, asparagus and red onion, with a fried egg and some tahini dressing. So good!!!

    “I'm not a nutritionist but I'm pretty sure that veggies aren't something you really need to be too strict about, so long as you're not eating them with tons of butter or cream or cheese and stuff. If you're hungry, you should eat. I'm sure you know this, but I'm just saying. I want you to be healthy and strong, not frail and sad.”

    I do too! But I also want to stick to my macros and calories… The good news is that soon my diet won’t be so restrictive. Yayyyyyy for bulking!!

    And here’s a serving size of veggies. I guess it doesn’t look too pathetic in the picture. Maybe I’m just being pathetic because I’m realizing I have to eat less…

    Seriously?!

    So, tonight I actually took the time to weigh out my frozen veggies, and I was shocked to see that the serving size was waaaaayyyyyy smaller than what I’d been eating. It actually pisses me off a little bit, because veggies were one of my favorite things to eat in my day, and they helped me feel full. But when I look at the actual serving size, it looks so ridiculously pathetic. I already have a fucking giant appetite as it is, I feel like there’s no way I could get used to eating such a puny amount…. 

    Once again, Neva thinks she’s staying on track with her diet only to find out she’s been completely wrong.
