It’s been almost two years this week that I was the most unhappiest Id been and the most unhealthiest. Its weird to think that a lifestyle that I never thought I could achieve changed my outlook on life completely. I no longer settle when it comes to guys, I am so much more confident now than I ever was in my entire life. Though I don’t go out as much as I used to, and my interaction with people i’ve never met has dropped inmensely, this lifestyle has given me confidence to say what’s on my mind, and drop those who have brought me down. Not only have I gained a new body from this lifestyle, I’ve also gained a new whole mentality and outlook on what I want for MY future and a better outlook on life.
Erykah Badu Interviews Kendrick Lamar
- <b> <b></b> BADU:</b> How do you choose chicks from backstage?<p><b>LAMAR:</b> How do I choose chicks from backstage?<p><b>BADU:</b> Yeah, what is the protocol?<p><b>LAMAR:</b> I try not to. [laughs] I’m too scared. Anybody who knows me knows that I’m probably the most scared person when it comes to that because I’m so caught up in the act of sex, of something going crazy, going out of my control. I’m too paranoid.<p><b>BADU:</b> [laughs] So you just pass?<p><b>LAMAR:</b> I’ve got to because I’ve seen a situation where it got totally out of hand, where something seemed so innocent, and now this person has got allegations on them. It spooked me. This was before my career really started, though—before any “Kendrick Lamar.” And that right there? It changed my whole perception about certain things. I’ll always keep that in the back of my head.<p><b>BADU:</b> So who is your asshole-checker?<p><b>LAMAR:</b> Who is my what?<p><b>BADU:</b> Your asshole-checker—the person in your crew or your family who let’s you know if you’re being a asshole.<p><b>LAMAR:</b> I have two, actually. [both laugh] But the main one is a friend of mine—a lady friend who has known me since high school. She has always been someone, since day one, who has said something whenever I’m an asshole, or also if I’m doin’ something positive—but more so when I’m out of my element.<p><b>BADU:</b> What’s your favorite cereal?<p><b>LAMAR:</b> Fruity Pebbles. When people ask for my rider, they think I’m crazy: Fruity Pebbles, baked chicken, bottle of Hennessy, and some Polo socks.<p><b>BADU:</b> What do you, as a man, envy about what it means to be a woman?<p><b>LAMAR:</b> There’s just a certain knowledge instilled in a woman. There are these things that women have that men just can’t grasp: the understanding of love; the understanding of being; having a certain type of care in your heart and knowing when to be compassionate; knowing how to be a confidante…<p><b>BADU:</b> That’s a good perspective. Something I envy that men have is that ability to grow a goatee. I think that’d be really hot on me.<p><p>

neverendingprogress asked: You look AMAZING, girl! I love your blog and all of your pictures! <3
Thank you! Means so much that I can inspire!
cashincheckscuttincarbs asked: I started lifting heavy 6 weeks ago, and I'm absolutely hooked. After the new year, I started tracking my macros, and I've noticed such a huge difference already. I've been looking around for my "dream body" to motivate me and visualize what I have to look forward to. I hope you don't mind me saying that you're my "dream body" inspiration. I know that's creepy, but it's fun to see how excited you are with your progress. I cant wait to get there!
Thank you gurl! That means a lot that I’m an inspiration. Keep lifting heavy, counting macros, and don’t let anyone get in the way of achieving the best you.!
