20 general tips to beginners trying to live a healthier lifestyle

People often ask me what I did to achieve the results that I have in regards to losing weight/becoming fit and usually I don’t know what to answer because so much can go into it and yet it really was kinda simple.

In fact, everyone is already aware of the basics: eat right, exercise. Try googling how to lose weight and tell me that isn’t the advice that pops up (besides spending hundreds of dollars on fad diets and pills).

But how does one get started?  What advice is there for those wanting to adopt a healthier lifestyle that have no idea where to begin?

Here are some of my rules that I’ve followed over the last year and a half that I believe has helped me reach my goals:

  1. Patience: Rome was not built in a day. Fad diets do not work for people looking to slim down and stay that way.
  2. Everything in moderation, even moderation.
  3. Drink water like your whole existence depends on it, because it does.
  4. Find cardio exercises you genuinely like and aim do it at least half an hour three times a week.
  5. Find something that tones and builds your muscles to go with your cardio. Lean muscle will boost your metabolism and make burning off fat more efficient!
  6. Stretch more, loosen the tension in your body. If you don’t you could seriously hurt yourself and holding onto stress physically can literally make you sick–trust me.  
  7. Listen to yourself. Tired, achy? Rest. Sick/injured? Rest. Unhappy, unmotivated, and wanting a break? Rest. 
  8. Don’t force yourself to eat healthy food you don’t like. Find out how you like your vegetables (raw, roasted, steamed?), your fruits. Try out different healthy foods and see what works best for you.
  9. Typically stick to lean meats and maybe limit red meat (no processed meat if you can help it), sticking to fish and poultry more.
  10. Cut out things that come in a bag/are full of refined carbs and sugar.
  11. If you like going to Starbucks/some other coffee shop, swap for lower-cal options with less flavored syrup and cream. Ask if they have skim, almond or coconut milk instead.
  12. Cut back on soda if not expel it from your diet completely.
  13. Fiber. Make sure you’re getting enough.
  14. Be wary of diet products and artificial sweeteners. They’re not always good for you. 
  15. Take your vitamins!
  16. Pamper yourself. Soak in some sun and get some fresh air every once in a while, take bubble baths, drink hot beverages in comfy clothes, etc etc.
  17. Aim to get those full eight to nine hours of sleep. 
  18. Set goals and rewards for when you reach them.
  19. Keep a food/exercise journal.
  20. Find a support group, online and off!

Dyrus’ Fansign contest. (this picture is really old but you get the idea)

I will be taking submissions for fan signs. Depending on who is the most creative that person will receive a 1 hour and a half lesson with me on how to get better at league.

IF you don’t play league you can tell me what game or how you would like to use that time whether talking, watching anime together, w/e I don’t know what you guys want.


1. One submission per person

2. It has to be YOU. it’s kind of pointless if I don’t get to see what my fans look like nowadays. back then I learned that there were people that were super ripped that actually followed me and that blew my mind.

3. Have fun, please don’t take it to seriously, the whole goal is to see who you guys are and to share it with my rest of my tumblr of what dyrus viewers/fans/followers would look like.

Deadline is November 14

(because I know people have busy schedules this is just a for fun thing)

14 things I learned from my mother and grandmother as a child, and hope to pass on to my future daughter.
  1. Walk upright, no matter what the world throws at you. Straighten your back, hold your head up high, and you’ve won half the battle.

  2. Don’t design your life around trying to make other people like you. Make your life unique and interesting for its own sake, and everything else will follow.

  3. Don’t spend your life depending on someone else. Always try to be able to stand on your own two feet because one day, you might have to make it on your own.

  4. Love isn’t just looking into each others eyes, it’s looking in the same direction.

  5. Don’t turn your back on people in need – it could be you.

  6. Just because someone looks different from you, doesn’t speak your language, or was born in a different place, that doesn’t mean you should treat them differently.

  7. An eye for an eye and the world will be blind.

  8. There are men who like men, there are women who like women, and that’s okay.

  9. There are people who were born in the wrong body, and that is also okay.

  10. No matter what hardships you’re going through, never forget to take care of yourself.

  11. Whatever negative things happen to you, you’re stronger than that. Never let anyone tell you you’re worth less than you are.

  12. Don’t judge anyone before you know their story.

  13. It’s okay to love yourself. Remember that fashion trends and beauty ideals are temporary. Be beautiful to yourself first.

  14. Take risks every now and then. They make life more fun.

Okay Sanne. Your first One Direction concert is almost here! I am interested in your wish list, aka the things (no matter how far fetched and ridiculous) you hope to happen for you to enjoy with your own eyes. If you had the concert experience from heaven (or hell, depending on how you look at it), what would it consist of???

My lovely Sus! What an excellent question! Now matter how farfetched or ridiculous? You shouldn’t have said that, haha.

Okay my DREAM ONE DIRECTION concert would have the following things in them:

1. Outfits: Harry is wearing a shirt where his nipples are out, because duh. Those titties should always be free. Louis wears braces ONE MORE TIME for one half of the show, preferably in combination with those white pants. You know what I’m talking about. For the second half Louis should definitely wear a scoop neck. Liam should just lose his shirt altogether after ten minutes. Niall can wear his hat! I think that would be funny. 

2. They sing a medley of ‘I want to break free’ from Queen and ‘I’m coming out’ from Diana Ross.

3. They sing No Control, Louis SLAYS it and Harry goes WILD and combines all the sex dance moves he knows. (He knows A LOT of them). 

4. There is a gigantic rainbow in the sky over the stadium for a full hour.

5. There should be Lilo banter at all time. 

6. Harry flashes his ferns at various occasions.

7. Harry gets asked what flavour Louis is.

8. Ron Wood comes on stage again during Where Do Broken Hearts Go and would you look at that, he brought his pal Mick Jagger.

9. Louis touches his bum at least ten times. His crotch at least five.

10. Someone brings a baby up on stage and Harry holds it perfectly like the dad he is, and Louis fonds with the light of a million suns.

11. When Louis isn’t fonding at Harry, he… Oh no wait, he is fonding at Harry the whole time.

12. In the empty seat next to me there is annayolome, webetterofftogether, intenselouis or harrystylesadidasaddict. THE COMMUTE IS DOABLE. (Alice can wear earplugs)

13. The crowd is silent for a while but when Louis sings, everyone screams all at once: LOUIS WE LOVE YOU, YOU TALENTED WONDERFUL HUMAN BEING. It will work.

14. They sing Torn a capella.

15. Harry ties his hair in a bun. Then he takes it out and shakes his curls free very sensually. He repeats this process during the show at least 15 times.

16. Louis chases a butterfly on stage.

17. They do an other wheelbarrow race and guess who the teams are. 

18. Niall tries to do a handstand again.

19. Louis sings Valerie (RIP ME).

20. Last but not least.. In the end, Harry and Louis start making out and across the LED walls on stage it spells: LARRY IS REAL.

That would be my dream concert. IS THAT SO MUCH TO ASK?

Seriously though. All I want is this:

OT4 being friends, having fun and a laugh. Good vocals throughout the show that give me goosebumps. And an enthousiastic crowd with lots of rainbows, having a good equal time :)
