4 day work weeks

So my internship started today. I’ll be working there for 14 weeks, 4 days a week, and the days I have free will be spent on making my dissertation and studying for my subjects.
I’m not going on a hiatus (cause I can never leave this place) but just don’t expect frequent updates until the end of my internship.
But I’m still gonna like all your posts :D

My Fitness Shit

Alright so a LOT of people have asked me what I do to at the gym what my diet is what should you should do as a beginner etc etc. 

My Program
For my program I am currently working out 4 to 5 times a week. Each day that I go I focus on a different muscle group: Push (Chest/Triceps), Pull (Back/Biceps), and Leg day. I also focus on a power lift, which can be: Bench Press, Deadlift, Overhead Press, or Squats. Along with a power lift I do accessory movements to complement it. Sometimes i’ll add in a few ab workouts but I don’t focus on that and i’ll say why in a sec.

Examples of my workout plans:
Push Day: Bench Press, Overhead Press, DB (Dumbell) Incline Press, DB Shoulder Press, Pec (Pectoral) Deck, Dip Machine, Side Lateral Raises, Overhead Tricep Extension, Rope Tricep Extensions, Cable Crossover, etc.

Pull Day: Deadlifts, DB Row, TBar Row, Seated Cable Rows, DB Curl, Rope Hammer Curl, Face Pulls, Lateral Pull Down, Reverse Pec Deck, etc.

Leg Day: Squats, Sumo Deadlift, Calf Raises, Leg Curls, Leg Extensions, Seated Leg Press, Hip Abduction, Hip Adduction. 

The usual amount of sets and reps is 3 sets of 15 reps for each of these workouts, HOWEVER, sometimes I will lower the amount of reps and increase the number of sets I’m doing if its a heavy day, meaning I will be lifting heavier weights because yay I am want to be stronger. 
Most likely this all sounds very scary and complicated but don’t worry! If you don’t know what these are just google them and if it looks fun to you then do it :)

My Diet
So my goal is to become lean, which is basically try to remove my fat as much as possible without losing too much muscle. To do this I need to keep track of what I eat. On the nutrition label of every food there is 3 macronutrients: Fats, Carbs, and Protein. This is important because I need to keep track of this if I want to lose fat. Right now I am eating about 600 calories below my BMI (Basal Metabolic Index) which is basically the amount of calories you need to go about your day. Google your BMI to find out how much you need :) I am eating 1600 calories a day AND I am trying to eat my weight in protein. Now I NEED TO DO THIS TO MAINTAIN MY MUSCLE MASS. Right now I weight around 130 lbs so I try to eat at LEAST 130 grams of protein. I am also limiting my fat intake to around 50g. I HIGHLY recommend you download the MyFitnessPal App!!! It makes it 10x easier to track what you eat!
So in short I am eating 1600 calories, ~130g of protein, ~200g of carbs, and <50g of fat
Now these numbers are dependent on your OWN weight, so if you want to find a good plan you gotta do some math okay? But yeah this is all I can think about at the moment. Good luck to everyone with their gains!

TAZ Lady Week, Day 4: Canon Divergence

What if Julia worked for the Raven Queen and she was the one sent to collect Lucas’ soul? It would!!! Have been so good!! Julia, who absolutely understands what Lucas and Maureen have done now that she is standing in front of her husband again, Julia who absolutely shares Magnus’ sense of honor and duty and has to make the agonizing decision to do her job anyway!!! I’m crying

My weight loss journey began shortly after I got engaged to my high school sweetheart. I began looking back at old pictures of the two of us and realized just how different I looked. I had managed to put on over 30 pounds in 4 years while in college. I began by simply calorie counting, went through a round of 21 day fix, and then realized that it was going to take some exercise. I now maintain a daily calorie intake somewhere between 1200 and 1500 cals and work out (often in Zumba class) 3-4 days a week. It may not have been the fastest weight loss, or the most extreme, but I am proud of myself and feeling 100x better both physically and mentally 😊

“How To Study.”

A tale told by a physics student. I am really bad at studying. Which explains my somewhat average grades. But i know how to study effectively and realistically have success with studying. Nobody ever teaches you HOW  to study, they just tell you to study. So here is how i do it (most of the time)

There are two ways of going at it.

  • Stress studying. (studying for exams just the day before and putting as much information in your head as possible just to forget everything right before the exam)
  • Actual studying. (taking the time you have and study at least 4 hours a day 3 work days a week, and actually get the success that you deserve)

Stress studying

It’s bad for you, your health, and a big cause of bee colony collapse disorder (Don’t ask why). Realistically you’re gonna pass your exams  1 out of 3 or 4 times, and it is just not worth it. It doesn’t just reflect on your grades but also on your work ethic. (which is real bad for your future)

Actual studying

What you need is:

  • Time.
  • Studying utensils (quality notebooks and good pens).
  • A clean and tidy Studying environment.
  • Discipline.

Time - It’s really simple, plan 4 hours a day of studying 3 work days a week. Don’t be like “But dude! When will i have time for my personal stuff?” seriously. A typical day has 24 hours, If you go to sleep at midnight and wake up at 7 or 8 (that’s 7-8 hours of sleep) you have 17-18 hours left to your day.

4 hours of that is just 23%, taking in account you’d do it at least 3 work days a week it would be just 7% (and a little more) of your precious workday time. So it’s worth it. Totally worth it. Don’t ruin your work ethic just because you want to spent 7% more time on tumblr.

Studying Utensils - I cannot stress enough how important good notebooks and good pens and stuff are. I suffered a lot from this, i wouldn’t take notes, and write down stuff because of how awful it looked on cheap paper with bic pens (no offense bic, your lighters are awesome tho).  

It’s not cheap tho, but at least buy good notebooks with that metal round thingy holding it (i.d.k the name of it in English). And go Black instead of Blue, Black pens all the way. Use sharpies instead of the usual stuff, or at least gel ink pens, the smoother it goes the better, and blue pens are an abomination, every knowledgeable person in the past ages has written in black. Oh, and fineliners.

A clean and tidy Studying environment - You have a desk? Yes? Good. Throw everything you have on it to the ground (except you laptop, you wouldn’t drop a baby, would you?). Get a desk lamp, no matter how bright your room is, you need a concentrated stream of light allowing the photons reflecting from the ink on your books to transfer the information successfully to your brain, and desk lamps boost concentration. Make that a working environment, only use that desk when you’re studying (no exceptions) and once you do that, every time you sit by your desk you will automatically start to work.

Discipline - You want to be full on motivated :D ??? Well f*** you cause that’s not happening >:D

Discipline is what you’re looking for. Full on military stuff, just like back in good old communism. Discipline guarantees you success, motivation leads to incoherent success which includes utterly common instances of failure.

I mean look at the definitions:

Mo·ti·va·tionˌ

mōdəˈvāSH(ə)n/ - noun

  1. the reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way.
  2. the general desire or willingness of someone to do something.

Will you rely on luck and willingness or reason? No, luck and willingness pass, they are not consistent and for every reason there are at least 10 excuses. Don’t be a silly excuse for your failed academic success.

Dis·ci·pline

ˈdisəplən/ - noun

  1. The practice of training people to obey rules or a code of behavior, using punishment to correct disobedience[1].
  2. A branch of knowledge, typically one studied in higher education.

[1] - The only punishment you’ll receive is academic failure, and not reaching your true, deserving recognition for your true intelligence and social worth just because of laziness caused by day to day stress is punishment enough, i think.

Discipline yourself, push yourself. Don’t wait for something so relative, so passing as motivation. If you’re gonna do something, STAND THE f*** UP AND DO IT.

Just remember RWSR.

  • Write
  • Study
  • Repeat

Weight gain numbers kink part 2

So theres a beyter shake. Piggy cara’s that consists of bananas, strawberries, weight gain powder, milk, heavy creme, peanut butter, peanut butter powder and chocolate syrup. (Think tastes like a blended banana split) at 14000 calories for every 64-74 ounces.

Now if the math is right one of those shakes is 3 times a potent as the lardfill one. Meaning each one is 3 pounds of weight to be gained.

Now the most expensive ingredient in the list us the powder coming in at 20$ for 12 shakes

So say you had a kinky weekend (long or a regular one) and were dead set on finishing the contents of one canister? Then thats 4-6 shakes a day. A whopping 12-18 pounds a day (roughly) or 36 pounds to be gained in that short duration. 4 shakes a day works out to 84 a week. So 336 pounds in a month.

Drinking this thing daily (1 shake) would be 84-90 pounds in a month.

Either way its a quick way to get huge fast. Heres hoping you’re not a sadistitic feeder or a masochistic feedee with a funnel fetish. Because gaining that fast that quickly could be all sorts of life threatening, especially if non stop.

When nuns show out.

I work with nuns 4-6 days a week because the shelter where I volunteer is through a Catholic church. Last summer I went in to volunteer and I was wearing a weather-appropriate caftan with my hair in a bun. One of the sisters was like, “what are you wearing?”

A caftan.

“Why?”

Because it’s hot outside.

I did a lil twirl to show her how fabulous I was and then she took a beat and said

“I can do better than that”

and spun around like she was gone with the wind fabulous.

It hurts my feelings when people comment saying I don’t care about YouTube anymore.. of course I care. I just have a life outside of that. I am a hair stylist and work 4, 5, sometimes 7 days a week. I film whenever I possibly can and sometimes my videos can’t be “perfect”. But I’m a real person, with a real life, real problems, real work to do, & priorities outside of YouTube. Although YouTube is so important. Sometimes my camera will be out of focus and I can’t tell until it’s too late. Sometimes my videos will be short. But I’m still TRYING. If you truly don’t enjoy watching me anymore, that is your choice and although it’s sad to lose subscribers, I’d rather you leave. I’d rather lose subscribers than have to be flooded with nasty and rude comments every time I put up a video that I put hours into. Because believe it or not, all videos, even five minute ones (except webcam videos) take HOURS to import and edit. And I still love doing it. As long as even 10,000…hell even 50 people watching me- I’ll never stop. I love it and I love you guys. But I’m only HUMAN.
