flush toxins

casual reminder that you shouldn’t fuck about with things in aussie tide pools or the ocean/beach region

half of them will probably kill you, some will definitely kill you, at least three i can think of can kill you before you know you’re dead

-

noticing an uptake in ig and fb photos of people doing stupid shit again, and it’s basic marine biology /common sense peeps

-

Specifically, don’t pick up tiny octopi, yeah they’re cute… but consider this: you won’t know if its a blue ringed octopus until it’s too late, and their beak is small so you won’t FEEL the bite… 

and the only way to survive a bite is immediate medical help where they try to keep you alive long enough for the toxin to flush out of your system, as the toxin does its best to shut everything down

like… just saying… you see picks of people picking up these little creatures all the time, and you’re screaming internally bc that could be a ProblemTM, and jesus why would you do that?

i mean, there’s also conefish that’ll fuck you up

stonefish chill around the place, step on one and you’ll know

lionfish are pretty but poisonous

eels and seasnakes can fuck you up

some corals have concerning defences, but again even a scratch from one if not treated right can get hella infected

stingrays are chill, unless scared (btw Steve Irwin SPECIFICALLY said not to blame the ray, he’d startled it, so please stop hating on the little guys)

Jellyfish are everywhere
>IRUKANJI/Box Jellyfish are really teeny tiny little cuties… they will cause you unending agony and can kill some people
>Do not go messing with them

Blue Bottles or Man’O’War are unmistakeable. Also jellyfish-like in the way they use tentacles

Basic Jellyfish

[As you may know from your op marine biology classes at high school, jellyfish tentacles are contact-activated (cn be circumvented by thick wetsuits). All along the tentacles are hundred of thousands of nematocysts… basically tiny little cells with what is basically minuscule harpoons in them. When one touches your bare swimmer leg, they fire and snatch you up, the more you move the more it wraps and activates. Which is why it hurts like hell, you shoud never try to remove one barehanded, peeing on it is a BAD IDEA (heat can stimulate more firing) and rubbing sand on it is also bad.]

>To remove jellyfish tentacles, if you cannot locate a lifeguard (who will have supplies for this type of first aid in the tower), wash the area with seawater -anything else will trigger more. Vinegar will remove most tentacles.
But make your first priority calling for an ambulance 000/additional medical aid, because some people can have EXTREME reactions to jellyfish stings (esp. irukanji), ad it can require CPR in some instances). 

Sharks - most are chill, but a few are desperate enough to come in to shore.
Don’t hunt them, don’t antagonise deliberately, they live in the damn ocean btw. A smack to the nose can ward them off in an emergency but mostly getting tf out of the water is the best bet.

>Other squid/octopi, they legit have tiny ass beaks that can damage you. Sure they look cute but do you want to risk it…

>We actually have quite a few fish that can fuck you up a bit?

>The crabs have amassed an army and are coming for us all someday soon, please do not antagonise them any further. they have a leviathan.

-

There are heaps of others, but like… if you really absolutely hav to bother tf out of sealife? And you’re in Aus… there are aquariums and (in Qld specifically) there’s the Mooloolabah Wharf Aquarium with touch pools of safe creatures…?

There are options outside of seaside roulette with your life?

-

And also, blue ringed octopi might flare before being touched but may be happy to be picked up and then flare… like… don’t risk it. I cannot underline how dangerous those murderous little beauties are. You will not know you are in danger, until you suddenly can’t move or breathe, and let’s hope you have someone with you to call 000… 

-

random post, please be safe.

riptides aren’t the only danger on the beach peeps

also, if you’re an aussie and can do a first aid course, it’s a good idea to have at least one person in the family/social circle able to respond to an emergency (esp. on the beach re: the above). so think about it.

I know the posts with “remember to drink water!” seems ridiculous but it is so so important you drink enough water every single day. It increases energy and relieves fatigue, promotes weight loss, flushes out toxins in the body (if your pee is a dark color then you’re not drinking enough water), improves your skin complection, helps digestion (especially mixed with lemon juice), a natural headache remedy, prevents cramps and sprains, improves your moods, and you save money going to restaurants when you ask for water rather than a soda or lemonade. Like seriously my family and I stopped ordering soft drinks when we go out to eat and we save a pretty penny and I don’t feel extremely full after eating. Please drink more water.

dennis (because he likes skin) i think of as the skin of the bar. though he didn’t want the skin of the apple? he is like this because he thinks that they are riddled with toxins. he is wrong. apple skins flush away the toxins. keep this in mind. the apple is the bar. the skin coming off the apple is dennis leaving the bar. the skin off the apple makes it less nutritious, as is the same with dennis and the bar. dennis is wrong about leaving the bar. dennis is wrong!! come back dennis!! flusH AWAYY THOSE TOXINS MY FRIEND

Hi! I'm between 5'5" and 5'6" and 120-130 lbs (it fluctuates a lot :() and was wondering what a good goal weight would be?

if you can keep it at 120, that’s a perfect weight for you! the lowest you should go is 115, though. also, if your weight is fluctuating, you probably aren’t measuring it in the morning, before you’ve eaten or drank anything (your weight fluctuates sooo much during the day!) also try hydrating more, it will flush out toxins! stay safe

Detox Water

better known as fruit-infused water, detox water is amazing in many levels. Aside from the fact that it can be very delicious and it does not in any way contain any large amount of calories, it also has some additional benefits which are:

  • Improves your mood.
  • Flushes toxins from your system.
  • Fills you up so you don’t eat as much junk.
  • Naturally helps your body release fat cells for water weight loss.
  • Keeps food moving through your system.
  • Keeps your organs healthy while you’re sweating.
  • Reduces muscle fatigue while working out.
  • Helps you recuperate faster from a workout.
  • Keeps you from feeling groggy in the afternoon.

Aside from all of those benefits, it is a very fun and easy process which only requires a small amount of your time everyday. You can also create many other recipes that you want by mixing different types of fruits and vegetables.

This is a simple reminder that being healthy does not always require a lot of sacrifice and effort. Mixing some healthy and yummy fruits together can create a wonderful detox water that provides a lot of benefits.

Until my next post!

Have fun and be healthy!

How do I lose 15lbs and get a thigh gap

hi! okay, so you should always start slow when it comes to weightloss. try first cutting a lot of unnecessary things in your diet, such as ‘unhealthy foods’ (crisps, processed food, sugary things) because they have lots of fat in them! honestly, you’ll see your weight just drop as soon as you do this! you have to make diet changes- replace some snacks with fruits (if you can just stop snacking at all), make your meals a little bit smaller, and DRINK WATER! water will help you flush out toxins, its really good for you and 0 calories! you should also start watching the amount of calories you eat (but please, if you’re starting, don’t go under 1000- that isnt healthy!) exercise regularly too, but if you’re restricting a lot of calories, exercise isn’t too necessary

really, you should start seeing more of a thigh gap once you start losing weight- but if you’re like me and you naturally have lots of thigh fat, i would recommend inner thigh fat exercises (which you can search for!) but please remember- for certain people, thigh gaps are not going to show all that much, because of hip size and other genetic reasons! please keep this in mind and don’t go overboard xxx

Detox water is not only for the waist-watchers but a very effective way of flushing out harmful toxins from your body, boosting your immunity and if that wasn’t enough to get you excited, it also gives you amazing skin!

We know detox water sounds like something very high-end and pretentious, probably out of a size-zero Victoria’s Secret Angel’s fitness regime. In the most reductive terms it basically is water infused with slices of fruits and vegetables. Detox water is made by soaking fruit and vegetable slices, letting their nutrients, flavours and all other unadulterated goodness diffuse into the water. Yes, its that simple. You can kiss your bland cereals and protein shakes goodbye because now you have a better tastier alternative.

One good news is you don’t have to starve yourself to death to benefit from detox water. Yes, this may be the best discovery you ever made. If you don’t know where to start from, we have got a few detox water recipes lined up for you that should do the trick - be it weight-loss, detoxification or just for amazing supple skin.

1. Cucumber chiller

This drink is the undisputed king of detox waters. Dice up cucumbers and lime and mix with a pitcher of water. Add a sprig of mint and slurp! This drink is full of vitamin C and also leaves a fresh minty aftertaste.

2. Aloe water

We all know about the wonders of aloe vera. Adding aloe vera to your detox water will give you amazing results too. Mix two tablespoons of aloe vera gel with a glass of water and a squeeze of lemon and blend. This drink aids in digestion and pumps up your energy.

3. Mango ginger water

If you are not feeling mango milkshakes and mango juices this summer you should definitely try out some mango ginger water instead. Chop up some fresh mangoes and slice up some gingers. Mix them up with a good helping of water. What will make this drink your new favourite is that it helps relieve migrain and menstrual cramps.

4. Watermelon cooler

If you have been avoiding watermelons for that sticky juicy mess they make while eating, this recipe is just the one for you! Add chunks of seedless watermelon to water and leave them overnight. Have a glass before breakfast to flush out your system and start the day with a healthy dose of vitamins.

You can also cook up your own detox water recipes. Try out any combination of fruits, vegetables and herbs, the sky is the limit. You might also want to add some honey or a pinch of pepper to pimp up your drink because variety is the spice of life. Too much water and fruits can never be a bad thing so get slurping!

Pre - Competition Nutrition
  • GESleep - This is when the body rests, recovers and grows stronger. 
  • WATER - This is a biggie… flushing out toxins keeps your joints in check and keeps them from getting achy. Also, if you are dehydrated you will get dizzy and won’t perform your best, this is proven. 
  • Stretching and ankle strengthening exercises - especially if you have week ankles or an injury. Dedicating yourself to this everyday really will help you. I will be posting on my current morning/evening routine soon.
  • Eating close to 100% clean -  I recommend to completely cut out white breads and cookies or anything made with white flour. Go for whole wheat instead or if possible have brown rice, sweet potato, and oatmeal - they really do last longer in your system and will give you the longevity you need to power through. You can have that pizza after the competition… you can have three while your at it lol. I would also cut out all soda… all that is is unnecessarily chemicals floating throughout your body, gross. (sorry, I’ve never really liked soda and not for health reasons) 
  • ICE AND ELEVATE - Irish dancers have a high pain threshold and don’t realize the hell we put our feet and legs through. Icing and elevating - even if you don’t have an injury - at least once a day will bring down swelling and help you push through during crunch time. 
  • Listen to good music - Listen to songs that are upbeat and inspire good moods. 
  • Visualization - I listen to dance music a lot and visualize myself doing my steps on stage. It sounds silly but it really does help the overall impact you make on stage. Any sport is just as much mental as it is physical. 
  • Laugh a little - seriously, its Irish Dance.
  • Whatever you do DONT STOP AT CLASS - Mentally this makes a huge impact for me when I get up on stage. I know that I’ve put in the work and I feel ready to show the judges and audiences that. 
  • Take a mid-week hot bath - I would say on Wednesday of the week before a competition weekend, take a hot epsom salts bath. It really helps to relax and rejuvenate your muscles all over. I don’t recommend to take one the night before because you don’t want your legs to be too lose for competition day. 
  • Get a message - Do this mid week, and then rest - REALLY rest - and take a netflix day. My discovery of deep tissue message has changed my life I swear - Im going to have to write a post on this one alone.

4 Surprising Reasons to Drink Hot Water With Lemon Every Morning

Trying to cut coffee out of your morning? A cup of hot water with fresh lemon juice is an ideal alternative that many nutritionists drink every day — and it’s not just because of its tangy flavor! Here are four compelling reasons to make this quick concoction part of your morning ritual.

  1. It helps you detox every day: While lemons may seem quite acidic, they’re a surprisingly good source of an alkaline food that can help balance your body’s pH; internist and doctor of integrative medicine Dr. Frank Lipman is a big proponent of a hot water with lemon habit, since the combination wakes up your liver and flushes out nasty toxins.
  2. It wakes up your digestive tract: This simple yet powerful beverage stimulates your gastrointestinal tract — improving your body’s ability to absorb nutrients all day and helping food pass through your system with ease.
  3. It supports weight loss: Lemon juice contains pectin, a soluble fiber that has been shown to aid in weight-loss struggles. And if you’ve been sipping on a cup of tea loaded with sugar or honey every morning, this beverage will slash calories from your daily diet.
  4. It soothes an upset tummy: When you go to bed on a full stomach, pesky heartburn or a bloated belly can get in the way of your morning. Hot water cleanses your system, while the flavonoids from lemon juice may help reduce acidity in your stomach, so you feel like yourself sooner.

What you need more of is water, water, water, water. As you clear out the lower vibrations in the energetic field, you create release in the physical body. The water helps you to flush out any toxins that have been released as a result of increasing your vibrational template. More oxygen will also help you, and by this we mean conscious breathing. We call breath The Great Connector. It helps you to move energy in your vibrational field as well as in your physical body.

Do you drink enough water each day?

8 Glasses

8 glasses of water a day…I know, it sounds like a lot! But there are easy ways to make sure you are getting enough water to keep you healthy and to help your skin stay glowing.

Why not swap your morning coffee for a nice glass of ice water? It’s a skin-loving, caffeine-free wake up call! Carry a bottle of water with you at college, or when you’re shopping for some hydration on the go. Even eating plenty of fresh fruit and veg can increase your hydration, because of their water content – plus, they’re super tasty!

So there are no excuses for getting your 8 glasses a day, girl!

As well as a whole heap of other health benefits, water can have an amazing effect of your skin! It helps flush out the toxins that lead to breakouts and blemishes, so drinking plenty can leave your skin clear and glowing.

how to stay focused (and happy) while studying

here are some fun, focusing tips for when you’re stressed, but studying!

  • stay hydrated and drink tons of water to flush toxins from your system
  • drink calming herbal teas to keep you stress-free and focused
  • use color in your notes
  • rewrite your notes in creative, organized ways
  • use healthy snacks as rewards
  • take breaks!
  • while studying what you have to know, don’t be afraid to learn more about the topic- particularly interesting things that make you want to know more and do well. You may just be memorizing physics equations but those equations could be used to build bridges or power generators in hospitals to save lives!

Vitamin water to keep me motivated between studying sessions 🌱🍋  Infused water is a quick and easy way to get amazing nutrients in the morning and has lots of health benefits : Boosts your metabolism 🌀 Flushes toxins from your system thanks to the antioxidants 🌀  The citric acid found in lemons helps to maintain proper body pH 🌀 Lemons are also high in vitamin C, which means they will improve your immune system 🌀 They’ll energize you after a workout 

When it comes to detox diets, we totally get the appeal.

Who’s not drawn to the idea of flushing all the toxins out of our bodies — a sort of spring cleaning of our insides?

And yes, several years back, I even remember trying — if only for a day — the trendy cayenne-pepper liquid cleanse (as seen in this Mindy Kaling clip from The Office) as part of a cleansing/detox diet.

But it turns out, as we’ve reported, the whole idea that you need to go on a special, draconian diet to detox your body really has no scientific backing.

From Detox To Elimination Diets, Skipping Sugar May Be The Best Bet

He had been missing three days, and by the time anyone found him his skin was turning blue from being so cold and he was going through withdraw to a drug he never wished to take in the first place.It had taken a day and a half of treatment to get his body temperature down and flush all the toxins out of it. He had been kept knocked out for most of it but he could remember bits and pieces, from being submerged in a metal tub of a water to warm him up, to having a tube shoved down his throat to pump his stomach. He had been awake for nearing an hour now, and was sitting cross-legged in his bed under a pile of blankets a package of saltine crackers on his lap. “Okay, I know this isn’t good but if we look on the bright side, I didn’t die.”
