I’m in love with this gif. Everything about it. The rain drizzling. The candle flickering. The colors. I love it.

god this is so relaxing



A year ago, I would have never ever even thought about uploading this photo.But I’d say I’m recovered now so I just wanted to let you all know: You will always have rolls when you sit down - unless you are very, very underweight. It’s completly normal and actually necessary. Imagine this wouldn’t happen. Imagine your tummy would be flat when you bend over - no fat rolls, no skin rolls. What would happen when you’re standing straight again? It will tear apart because it cannot stretch! My goal was not having rolls when I sit down - I developed bulimia. It was my best friend’s goal - she ended up in a hospital for being anorexic.
So please don’t focus on that. I like the way my body looks when I stand straight, so I also accept the way it looks when I bend over. And so should you!

someone brought this up again! (so I might bring it up as well, it’s still accurate you know)

Franzi youre amazing!

Run free
I ran.

I ran for the first time since my injury. The first time in over a month.

5k in 22:37, not bad for only biking and walking the past 38 days.

I made sure my route included lots of stop lights just so I would be able to rest/stretch if need be—and it was definitely needed. I can run without the intense pain that was once there…but there is still some stiffness.

tomorrow is my last day of therapy. hoping all continues to go well and I am cleared to run.
