Yesterday, a teacher at my daughter’s preschool told me that she saw two boys and a girl spinning the knobs of a play oven. Boy #1 says: “I’m a pilot! I’m flying a plane.’ Boy #2 says: “Me too!” The girl is quiet, so the teacher says to her: “What about you, are you a pilot?” The 3 year old girl replies: “I can’t be a pilot. I’m a pilot’s wife.”

So what do you think has happened in this little girl’s short life to make her believe it’s more likely that she would be a pilot’s wife than a pilot?

Discipline vs. Restriction
Discipline: Discipline is doing things even when you don't want. Working out even though you want to stay on tumblr or when you just feel like watching tv. Not eating all 20 cookies after you've cooked them or 10 brownies at the party. Not having 10 glasses of a sugary drink, instead only having 1 or 2. Eating in moderation and exercising a good amount per week, but still giving yourself a little room for error. And definitely not going to the gym while you are sick!
Restriction: Not allowing certain foods or even food groups. Trying to make your calorie intake lower. Crash dieting and not allowing yourself to have even just 1 cookie. Restriction is depriving yourself and it is very unhealthy. Also, making yourself work out even when your sick or exercising for extremely long periods of time.
Restriction and Discipline are not the same thing. Constant and consistent restrictive behaviors are or may turn into disordered eating (even if you don't realize or understand it).

tbh dress codes are fine as long as they are about looking professional and appropriate for a learning/working environment and not about ‘don’t distract the boys’ and slut-shaming, and as long as it’s enforced equally for all genders

it is the sexist attitude about it that needs to be changed, not the fact that there *is* such a thing as dress codes

That’s why she’s in love with you, you know… There were a lot of other boys, but they didn’t scare her. She rather frightened them, I think. You’re very different. But I think you frightened her, and that’s why she likes you.

When you first decide to commit to a new fitness plan you have two options. You can look at yourself in the mirror, realize how weak you are and lose all motivation. Or you can look at yourself in the mirror and realize how much potential for growth you have. The choice is yours but only one will allow you to succeed, choose wisely.
