and lifting

Can we like, not knock on other peoples' favorite form of exercise?

Like, you love to run miles on end? Frickin’ rad! You hate cardio and only lift? Badass! You do yoga? Cool! You only do calisthenics?! Awesome! You only walk laps around Target to get your steps in? GO YOU! You’re being active the way that you can, or makes you happy. And if you’re doing something you hate, you probably won’t do it long enough to get the results you want. So just enjoy falling in love with being active and don’t worry about what will burn the most calories or what people are telling you you SHOULD be doing.


I don’t program bench dips as a scale for normal dips. They put the shoulder in a precarious position, and cause more irritation to the anterior capsule than anything. Ring dips are the optimal variation, in my opinion. They are incredibly challenging for most people, but they keep the shoulder in the best position, and the elbows are able to stay close to the body. If you’re not able to do ring dips yet, scale them by doing ring push-ups, until you build the necessary strength. Avoid bench dips!

Work in progress 🏋️‍♀️🚨‼️
It’s been 4 weeks since I’ve completed committed myself to changing my lifestyle. I go to bed early, I eat WAY more veggies, I’ve been intuitive eating - which means I’ve been more focused on what foods my body reacts too - I wake up early to hit the gym, I push myself, I dedicate time to learning everyday, and I’ve been trying to put God first in my life. Mentally I’ve come a long way and I’m excited to see where I’ll be in another month from now📆

For the art style thingy, I think the way you shape heads/faces is very distinctive, as well as your lines themselves. I don't know how to describe it, but I follow a bunch of art blogs and there are a handful that, when they come up on my dashboard, are instantly recognizable as a certain artist. Your work is among them. Many of your pieces are quite beautiful.

omg thank you so much! 

i just discovered that there’s a shoplifting side of tumblr.. i’m going through someone’s blog and wtf why do ppl do this? like i get it if you’re poor and really need like toothpaste or something and can’t afford it but these people are stealing a shit ton worth of stuff just because

brooklyn nine nine is really good to us when it comes to friendships, because every character has such unique friendships and bonding scenes with the others but i dont think we talk about rosas and charles friendship enough because damn:

- we start the show with charles being head over heels for rosa, who is clearly not interested

- rosa tells him, very clearly, that she thinks hes sweet and really likes him as a friend but shes not interested in dating him

- it takes charles some time to get over her, but he does!! apologizes for being weird and making her uncomfortable!! and they go on having an incredibly strong and close friendship!!

- at one point charles even takes a bullet for her, which could have led to the whole “just give him a chance” trope but nope b99 doesnt do that bs, they talk it out and they never end up together

- they are so close that charles even helps rosas bf to plan for her birthday because he knows her so well!! she loves it!!

- rosa asks charles to be her bridesmaid because they are so close and she knows charles would love that!! he does!!

- charles plans her the best bachelorette party and rosa absolutely loves it!! she gets so excited she literally lifts charles up from the floor??

- sometimes between working cases they go to have foot massages together?? that was so cute??

- charles helps rosa text her boyfriend?? because shes not that great at pickup lines?? how cute??

- the writers could have easily opted to go with the “less attractive man falls for his way hotter coworker whos not interested but ends up giving him a chance because he is nice (and wont stop pestering her)” trope but instead we got this beautiful beautiful brotp


thank you nine nine
