I’ve been so focused on my diet lately and despite having a major breakout at the beginning due to the huge change it has definitely made a mahoosive positive impact on myself both physically and mentally.
I’ve swapped my cows milk for soy and coconut, swapped from quick supermarket snacks to healthy, organic, clean snacks such as fruits and natural yogurts. I’ve been having my vegetables with homemade dips so i know all thier ingredients, removed ALL caffeine from my diet and minimised my sugar intake, drinking 2 litres minimum of water a day. I have removed the majority of red meats only eating these once a weeks, and have added more quorn into my diet. I have started shopping locally for my meats and dairy too supporting smaller butchers and farms it’s not much pricier and you know the source. Smoothies have made a great breakfast replacement for my stupid early hours at work after eating a solid breakfast in a morning anytime before 6am was giving me the worst stomach pains ever.
Overall i feel so much fresher, so much more awake and alert. I have tonnes more energy and it is all definitely taking an effect on my body. I’m shedding my fat like crazy and due to the dairy and white meats my muscle building has sped up incredibly. It’s a strict diet but it’s definitely worth it and your body soon adjusts to its new routine and all bad cravings vanish!
I had once thought you held the stars in your eyes
I saw you through those pathetic rose tinted glasses, seeing only the good
Soft edges, rounded corners
Your eyes held a promise of something more than this world
Your hands created a pathway of sound to escape
But now, now I see clearly
With the glasses thrown to the ground
A mix of fragmented pieces and broken hearts
I see you as you are
I see the cruel creature, using and leaving people
I see the slimy, twisted depths of your mind
And how far you’re willing to go to fit into this freak show
The soft edges and rounded corners are instead sharp planes and jagged joints
The girl I once knew is no longer a girl
Maybe once she was,
But in her place
A monster has grown
one thing that really bugs me is the stereotype that all people with ocd are organized and have perfectly clean houses
like while that may be true in some cases, it can be quite the opposite for other people.
like for example, hoarding is connected with ocd. but a lot of people brush off hoarders as being lazy or gross because they dont fit that clean freak stereotype everyone associates with ocd
and when my ocd was really severe, i would avoid cleaning as much as possible because i didn’t want to deal with being triggered. cleaning meant touching contaminated things, touching contaminated things meant intrusive thoughts, and so on. honestly even today when my ocd is less focused on contamination, i still dread changing the litter box or taking out the garbage for those exact reasons
and then there’s people with ocd who don’t have any worries about contamination whatsoever. im willing to bet a lot of these people go undiagnosed or aren’t always taken seriously
basically the whole stereotype that ocd = neat freak is extremely harmful. yes, some of us fit that stereotype, but it does not define ocd, and that idea is actively hurting people
For me GOT7 is the only boy group without a visual hole or someone who doesn’t fit the korean standards. They’re looks are incredible. And I don’t say now “Youngjae doesn’t fit the standards” he freaking does but Koreans are blind.
