Vodka Cherry Pokeballs

I’ve seen rummy bears and vodka gummy worms, but what if you want something a bit more gamer themed? Imgur user BigEatsBen melted some bags of various colored gummy candy, mixed it with vodka, and formed each sphere into a total of 20 alcoholic Pokeballs. They look like an awesome snack for a themed party, or even just a fun treat to wrap up and give to fellow Pokemon trainers. Quite the rare candy.

“Mr. Wayne,” Alfred greeted, “Mrs. (Y/L/N).”

“Good night, Alfred.” (Y/N) greeted back with a smile.

“You look astonishing.” He complimented. Bruce observed lovingly.

“Alfred, that’s my job. You’re stealing her from me.” Bruce joked, “You look astonishing, (Y/N).” he said, leaning closer to her.

“The guests are waiting.” Alfred informed.

Bruce nodded and thanked him. Then, he and (Y/N) walked graciously to the huge room that Bruce used for his charity events.

The golden chandelier was so big it worked to illuminate the whole place and one of the walls had been replaces with crystal that went from the ceiling to the floor, from one side to the other, like a massive window that had a clear view of the starry night mixed with Gotham city’s lights. A string quartet played soft music, perfect for the ambience, and the guests – who wore the finest gowns and tuxedos – enjoyed a fluent conversation with one another.

“Looks like they’re having fun.” Bruce whispered into (Y/N)’s ear.

She smiled at him, but before she could reply, the few reporters that were allowed into the event made their way towards them, interrupting the small talk.

“John Stamos, Daily Planet,” one of them spoke, “Mr. Wayne, you and Miss (Y/L/N) have been together for many years, will you give the next step soon?” The rest of the reporters agreed.

“We don’t want to rush anything,” (Y/N) hurried to answer, “Bruce and I are comfortable just how our relationship is right now.” Bruce gave her a proud nod.

The reporters bombarded them with a few more, unimportant, questions before letting them socialize with their guests. (Y/N) and Bruce were Gotham’s power-couple, and so everyone loved them. She was the perfect balance for him.

As the night went by, Bruce couldn’t help but to feel more and more nervous. It was like a gut-feeling, one that didn’t bring good news. So he checked every entrance, every window, every corner; the guards were in place, no one would get in without him knowing.

“Bruce, is everything all right?” She asked, noticing Bruce’s strange behaviour.

“Yes, just… Security check-up.” He replied nonchalantly, “Batman still can’t capture the Joker so… I want to make sure he doesn’t make an appearance.”

(Y/N) smiled tenderly at him and nodded, right before she dragged him back to the party.

Everything was fine, everything was calm. Not a single guard had left their spot, and no one had seen or heard anything strange. But when the lights went off, they all knew there had been some kind of mistake; a black hole in the security.

So what is the plateau? 

  • The plateau is the point in your fitness journey where you’re working out and your results are starting to slow down and this can be the point in your journey where you start to lose motivation, it’s natural for you to feel like that, but you can do this! 

So what can you do to help get yourself back on your journey? 

  1. Change -  Change is so important in your fitness journey. If you’re doing the same workouts over and over again, your body is starting to get used to it and you’re working out the same muscles over and over again. Try something new, do something different, challenge yourself a bit.  There are lots of different workouts on my blog workoutworkitgirl
  2. Try HIIT workouts - These work outs are brilliant, they are short but intense workouts and can give some good results as they make your body work hard! Click here for HIIT workouts
  3. Don’t give up - Now I know that is easier said than done, because you’re feeling like you’re not getting anywhere and you start to think, oh I’m never going to lose weight, you will, you will get there but giving up isn’t the answer for you. 
  4. Do different types of cardio workouts - If you’re doing the same cardio (for example running) then like I said earlier, you’re working out the same muscles every time, instead swap it around a little bit, so run one week and then do things like cycling the next. Click here for cardio tips
  5. Try different foods - This can really help as your body starts to get used to the foods you’re eating so change it up a little bit, maybe try to get your protein from a different source, instead of having chicken and getting your protein that way, maybe try to have some salmon or tuna or kidney beans! 
  6. Start strength training - Using weights can really help you to build muscle but also gives your metabolism a boost, it’s a win win situation! Click here for tips for lifting
  7. Don’t become obsessed with losing weight - This is a tough one because when you want something so badly you tend to focus on the long term goals of your journey. So instead try to make smaller goals for yourself, for example, when you get up in the morning, say to yourself, I’m going to aim for 30 minutes of cardio (your choice) and then have a lovely post workout meal (click here for good post workout meals)
  8. Remind yourself of how important rest days are - Your body is incredible, it needs a chance to rest and repair the muscles you’ve been working out. If you push your body too much it can lead to injury, so please rest, it will not effect your progress! Click here for understanding when it’s best to rest.
  9. Get more sleep - Making sure that you’re getting enough sleep is vital in your fitness journey, so make sure that you’re getting a minimum of around 7 hours sleep. Why is sleep important? Well if you don’t get enough you’re more likely to have what might be classed as unhealthy cravings (everything in moderation) you are likely to have higher anxiety levels, you’re at higher risk of things like depressions, heart disease, diabetes, injury and also hypertension. 
  10. Understand what your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is - This is really important simply because you are then able to see how many calories you would burn if you just stayed in bed all day (sounds like bliss to me - anyway back to reality) do not eat less than your BMR, this is the number of calories your body will need to function normally. Understanding calories calories is important, click here for info on calories. 
  11. Drink more water - Your water bottle should be your best friend, water flushes out toxins from your body, hydrates you. Often when we feel hungry it can actually mean we are thirsty. 
  12. Eat metabolism boosting foods - Adding into your meals things like water, chilli peppers, green tea, coffee, red beans, garlic, raspberries, strawberries, broccoli  whole grains and lentils are all foods that can boost your metabolism naturally! 
  13. DO NOT SKIP BREAKFAST - If you think oh I’ll be okay and go without breakfast, no no no no no, stop right there, breakfast is so important, by eating breakfast, you wake up your metabolism to start a new day, don’t skip it, or any meal for that matter. 

I believe in you!

Lots of love

Walker’s Blood (The Walking Dead cocktail)

Ingredients:
1 oz Bourbon
1 oz Blackberry Brandy
Coca-Cola (to fill)
1 splash Grenadine

Directions: Mix the ingredients in a highball glass. See the video below for more details.

The Walking Dead is back on television. As a native Atlantan, I had to make a drink inspired by the horrible walkers and the city that the TV series takes place in. The mix of southern ingredients and easiness of the recipe make the perfect recipe to drink at camp after a long day of gathering supplies and slaying zombies.
