     Blueberry Lemonade 500 6502

    LISTEN

    H.O.L.Y. – Florida Georgia Line| So the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open is Today in my small hometown and they have a concert with the Gold Tournament. This year the performer is Florida Georgia Line so in anticipation of the concert I listened to a bunch of their music and I am obsessed with this new one of theirs!

    WATCH

    Water Bottle Flipping | This is an insane new craze that everyone started doing. It all started with this video of a kid at a talent show where his talent was flipping a water bottle and having it land standing up straight, the crowd went insane. It’s hard not to laugh at.

    READ

    The Choice by Nicholas Sparks | So this Nicholas Sparks masterpiece just got made into a major motion picture but let me tell you, the book is a million times better. I read it in only 2 days which is saying something for someone who doesn’t always enjoy reading, like myself. 

    SIP

    Simply Lemonade Blueberry Lemonade | This is my new favorite drink. And plus it isn’t alcoholic for all you underage readers like myself. It’s not like your typical raspberry or strawberry lemonade and it’s super refreshing for a hot day by the pool.

    SNACK

    Parfait Bar | I think this is such a cute idea for a summer BBQ or party. It’s also heathy which is always a plus! Just grab a few flavors of yogurt and a ton of mixing goodies like granola and fresh fruit and you’re golden.

    DOWNLOAD

    Pokemon Go!| Pokemon just came out with their latest genius idea. This app lets you go all over town searching for Pokemon on your phone. I personally haven’t played it yet but people say it’s addicting, and I’m not talking about for 10 year olds. My 19 year old friends are OBSESSED with it!

    We Believe.
    We’re in the midst of an epidemic. Our young women are bombarded with images and messages that glorify perfection as thin and beautiful.  In some instances, they also have inadequate education on the merits of healthy, active, nutritious living.  As a result, our young women are falling short–failing to realize how extraordinary they are. Instead they focus on everything they are not.

    We Impact.  That’s where Movemeant steps in. We believe that every body is meant to move. That we can enable women to form positive, healthy habits in her teenage years that will further her physical and emotional well being in her adult years. We believe that any girl who wants the chance to move, so that she may discover her own sense-of-self, should be given one.

    Distance: 5K
    When:  You have the month of July to complete your race.  You can walk, run, cartwheel, crawl, walk on your hands, whatever you want……You can complete the distance in whatever time you need, as long as you complete in the month of July!  When you complete your race post a pic of you with your swag, tag @thicktothin, @movemeantfoundation and use tags #weareallathletes, #innerathlete, #T2Tvirtual, #T2Tmovemeantrace

  • Why WE believe #weareALLathletes

    T2T Collage

    So, if you’re new to T2T you know that our motto has been #weareallathletes for the longest time… but what does that actually mean??? Well, duh, what it means is that we, women, of all shapes, sizes, abilities, in fact, ARE athletes.

    Screen Shot 2016-05-31 at 8.49.42 PM

    There it is, exactly what that says, an athlete is a person who is proficient in sports and other forms of physical exercise. So why, why do we not see athletes of all sizes in society?

    The body positive movement is gaining momentum and we wanted to leave our mark. We wanted to show the world that we really truly are athletes. To me, what does an athlete even look like? Well, an athlete looks like YOU looks like ME looks like everyone… #ilooklikeanathlete is another huge hashtag that we are trying to show and push out there…

    To me we need to show the world that we are working hard for a reason… We are working hard to live a long life, to be role models for our kids, to show people who not to underestimate…. We do it for a number of reasons so the next few months we are going to be showing the world that we are ALL ATHLETES by writing our reasons for being an athlete on cardboard and hoping that these reasons inspire someone, anyone, to be strong and show the world that THEY look like an athlete!

    LISTEN

    Flume – Never Be Like You | This new single by Flume has been my jam lately! While’s having a sick beat it also had a great message, we are all only human, we mess up sometimes, and it’s okay!

    WATCH

    Chewbacca Lady | I dare you to watch this video without dying at this lady’s laugh – it’s so contagious! If you need a boost for your day watch how happy this lady is about her Chewbacca mask!

    READ

    Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen | This book was made into a movie in 2011 but I just recently read it to get my mind off the stress of finals. This book has it all, mystery, drama, romance, and even a little erotica, but don’t worry it’s no 50 Shades, but it is most certainly a great read. 

    SIP

    Champagne Punch for Two | Who doesn’t love a fruity twist to classic champagne, I mean no pain, no champagne, am I right? 

    SNACK

    The Thin Trend | I don’t know about you but lately I’ve been noticing the “thins” trend; thin Oreos, Wheat Thins, granola bar thins, and frankly I think it’s pretty smart. You feel like you’re full because you ate your usual number or crackers, cookies, etc. but they’re much less calories than their thicker versions! 

    DOWNLOAD

    VSCO | This is the new Instagram, trust me. VSCO is really hitting the college scene right but it’s going to take off soon. In my opinion, it’s much less judgmental than Insta because people aren’t so worried about likes, since there are none! It’s more about showing awesome photography to an awesome community.

    LISTEN

    Justin Timberlake is BACK | It’s been THREE years since JT has dropped a new single. Well, the wait is over. Indulge your teenage N’Sync obsession and listen to this amazing jam. 

    WATCH

    Justin Timberlake is BACK | Yep, this is the same link as Listen. It’s too good not to share twice.  If you need a pick-me-up today, watch this star studded feel good video. I dare you to not dance!

    READ

    Me Before You: A Novel by Jojo Moyes | Another soon to be movie, can you tell I have a problem? Grab the tissues and rent this book STAT. A great book about the human condition and the difficult decisions we hope to never have to face.

    SIP

    Mother’s Day Cocktails | We all know Sunday is Mother’s Day. Make your favorite lady a special drink to honor all she’s done for you. Happy Mother’s Day to all of the T2T moms out there!

    SNACK

    Macro Bars | So, if you are part of the TOMC you got to try these out a few months ago. These bars are organic, vegan, GF, non-GMO and the best part DELICIOUS. We’ve heard if you warm them up in the over they puff up and become a super gooey treat. A great alternative to guilt inducing cookies.

    DOWNLOAD

    Heads Up! | This game is SO much fun. From kids to adults this is an amazing game to play. Download it on your smart device and start playing, like now. Waring: can induce laughs and rage.

    iHeart2000s Radio | I get SO bored when I am running or working out to the same music. Let’s have a #tbt or #fbf to the best decade (in my opinion) of music! Listen to your guilty pleasures while you run. No one else can hear it!

    WATCH

    Tip Hero | These videos are EVERYWHERE! They have the most delicious yummies blowing up our newsfeed.  As you are wiping the drool off your keyboard, make sure to “save” them for later. These come in handy when you are in quick pinch for dinner!

    READ

    Your Local Paper | #nerdalert – Stay updated on what’s going on. There are big and little things happening locally and nationally. Your local paper probably covers all of it. #yourwelcome

    SIP

    Post Work Out Smoothies | I know, I know. Drinking the same old, chalky protein shakes after a killer gym sess definitely kills your post-workout buzz. Reward yourself! Try these great smoothie recipes post-workout or for breakfast. No one is judging you!

    SNACK

    Mexican Cauliflower Rice | So, this isn’t so much a snack but something I absolutely love. It’s great with just about anything.  This is no-carb option as a side with any type of meat. Win-win!

    DOWNLOAD

    Vinted | I have been going through “spring cleaning” fever since last year and really needed to re-home some of my bags, totes, shoes and accessories. Why do I need 45 iPhone cases? Anyways, Vinted is a free app (and website) that allows you to sell your stuff, for a small fee. They handle shipping costs and deposit the funds right into your bank account. Cha-ching!

    I LOVE FOOD.

    I just ate ice cream cake.

    It was delicious.

    And now I feel sick.

    Is this a haiku?

    I think I’m going to have to stop watching TV if I have to watch the Zwivel Cosmetic Surgery commercial one more time. It’s literally about hating your body, and idolizing what someone else has, which we come to find out, was surgically created. This is the reason we have such LOW self-esteem about ourselves!!! LIKE WHAT THE HELL! I get it, these doctors have to make money too, but do they have to create such a self-hate commercial?!?! EFF THAT NOISE. If you feel you need to have cosmetic surgery, chances are you don’t, but if you want to, it’s your body, but please KNOW you are beautiful JUST THE WAY YOU ARE!

    That is all……
