stop over hydrating. 2 liters a day is enough. 3 liters is max. Do you want to need a kidney transplant at age 30? No? Then stop stressing your kidneys
Same with green tea. It’s good for you but on te right quantity. It is a diuretic and will stress your kidneys like crazy. 2 cups a day max
I’ve seen the “take an aspirin a day to boost your metabolism” weight loss tip run around a few times and just NEVER DO THIS; 1 you’ll stress your liver, 2 it’s complete bullshit, 3 you’ll become resistent to the medication so when you do need to take it it won’t work
restricting your diet too much is worse than over eating. All you are doing is dehydrating yourself, stressing your organs and fucking up your metabolism. The lowest you can go is 800 calories a day. Anything less and sure you lose weight but it will come back just as quick, your weight loss will stop after a few days, and you’ll lose all your cardiac muscle. Besides the calorie change has to be gradual. You can’t be on a 2000c diet and suddenly jump to a 100c. Your body will freak out thinking you are under distress and stop using your fat reserves to preserve energy. You need to take away 50-100 cals a day so it can work properly
Laxatives are extremely dangerous and should only be taken for medical reasons as prescribed by a doctor. The n1 cause people get intestine infections other than perforation is reckless use of laxatives, and an intestine infection is not only one of the worst things you can go through, but has one of the biggest death rates. All laxatives do is dehydrate you and stress your intestines
It’s not worth having your “dream body” if you are gonna fuck it up in the process. I don’t care how much you hate yourself, trust me, you don’t want to go through these things. You don’t want to die from these things. It’s a painful and miserable way to go
Naruto: He loves them and is basically down to ride anything. He always wanted to go to an amusement as a kid but never had anyone to go with so he tries to make up for all that missed time by riding EVERYTHING. A MILLION TIMES. NOW. He’s really overdramatic about every coaster he goes on too like he’ll throw his hands up and half scream / half laugh the entire ride.
Sakura: She’s not like….obsessed with roller coasters or anything but she’ll go on all of them regardless (except for the water ones, she’s not about to walk around soaking wet forget that). She usually rides everything with Naruto because he’s just too enthusiastic to say no to but she constantly has to remind him to drink water/stay hydrated because he will literally dart from line to line and pass out from heat exhaustion. Sasuke: Doesn’t care about roller coasters one iota and is the most stale piece of bread to ride one with. He’ll sit with his arms crossed and stare blankly ahead for the entirety of the ride giving no indication that he’s enjoying the experience at all. Except there was this one time Naruto got him to ride one that had an unexpected drop that startled him and when he yelled “oh shit!” nobody let him live it down for weeks.
Shikamaru: He tries to act so fucking nonchalant about coasters but he’s secretly scared shitless by them and everyone knows it. He’ll be like “I’m not afraid, I just don’t see the point in waiting in line for them. Whatever” but Ino is staring at him just a little too pointedly and his voice is quivering just a little too much and the whole world knows Nara Shikamaru is a big fucking baby.
Ino: Really into them just like Naruto, but is a lot less idiotic about it. She will wait in line to ride the biggest fucking coaster at least ten times in a row and is always so fucking put off when Shikamaru convinces her to go on the mini mine train “as a breather”. She huffs and puffs until they get to go on the big ones again.
Choji: He’s kind of just goes along with what everyone else wants and doesn’t really question it (especially because Ino’s like…really scary when she has her heart set on a ride). He’s pretty chill with most of the coasters except for the ones that take you really high and suddenly drop you, because they make him queasy. One time he disappeared from the group for like thirty minutes and Kiba found him next to the gift shop eating an entire turkey leg by himself.
Lee: Rock Lee isn’t afraid of anything so theres not a ride he wont go on, but he always does so with such a dramatic flare, as if the roller coaster is an enemy that he has to defeat. Also really likes the teacup ride and is not ashamed to admit it.
Neji: Tries to act like he doesn’t care about them at all but secretly gets such a thrill every time he goes on one. Hinata and Tenten both know whats up and beg him to ride with them so that he can go on whatever he wants and pretend like he was just indulging them. It’s all about keeping up appearances.
Ten Ten: She’s actually a little terrified of roller coasters but rides them anyways because she’s ALL ABOUT conquering her fears. She screams pretty loudly at all the drops but everyone is always impressed with her because despite her fear she rides EVERYTHING, even the stuff some of the people who actually like rollercoasters are apprehensive to ride.
Kiba: He’s one of those little shits that shows up an hour before the park opens just so he can be the first to go on everything and “beat” everyone else (its not a competition, Tenten always tells him) by riding the most rides. Has been caught on more than one occasion telling kids that “Someone died on this roller coaster”.
Hinata: She’ll go on a few rides here or there, especially if someone specifically asks her to accompany them, but overall she doesn’t find them that enjoyable. She likes to stand by the fence and wave to Naruto and Kiba when they pass by while riding the more intense stuff. She’s always there to provide moral support.
Shino: Has never been on a roller coaster in his entire life and is obnoxiously critical of them. “You people waste your time with this nonsense when you could be training your mind and body? Disgraceful”. Everyone thinks he’s gonna be just like Sasuke and not react at all when he gets on one for the first time, but to their surprise he actually gets really into it and when the ride is over he just says “that was exquisite” in the flattest voice.
Sai: He likes them but in truth doesn’t understand the function of roller coasters or why everyone is so frightened of them. He always stands in the singles line and ends up riding with random kids + fake screams despite not being scared at all because he wants to fit in.
So I’m eating well. Drinking moderately. Staying OK-ish in the active department.
However, once again, I’m outta whack on the basics:
Sleep - I’m going to bed way too late again. Last week’s nightly protests in Charlotte didn’t help as it triggered a bunch of late night news (riot porn) watching.
Coffee - drinking too much of the stuff. Probably somewhat because of the sleep thing, and somewhat also causing the sleep thing. Bah! For the last 3 months there’s been free coffee available at work since they’ve installed and supplied a new Keurig machine. I’m not worried about calories etc. since I’m a black coffee no sugar kinda guy. But the acid doesn’t help my heartburn at all.
Hydration/soda - usually I’m really good at this. But recently I’ve just been really bad at drinking water and I’ve been drinking more soda than normal. This is one area I will find it easy to go cold turkey.
Bed by 10:30 PM
Two cups max. Decaf after 11 AM. After one week, phase out the decaf and limit to one cup.
What do you think of using nivea post shave balm as a primer?
I think it’s hit or miss! Your makeup will go on smoother because the main ingredient is glycerin and people use glycerin by itself as a primer or moisturizer for smooth, supple skin! It also has witch hazel which is a natural astringent that would help your skin from getting oily, making your makeup last longer and witch hazel is great for acne.
I’d say this product should work for most people with more combination skin. It won’t make your makeup last all day if you have very oily skin and it won’t make your skin extremely hydrated and glowy if you have very dry skin. But it will work very nicely as a makeup base and your foundation should go on a little smoother and last a little longer. A great option for a primer at the drugstore. :)
I’d suggest trying this over moisturizer as a primer or in place of moisturizer to see which method gives you the best results.
If it doesn’t work for you, you could always use it as an after shave balm on your bikini area or legs!
If you’re looking for budget primers I really recommend
Yesterday was a really low key, restful day. After deciding that the gym is definitely out of the picture for now, I suppose this is what the lower end of normal will look like for me. I was going to try to go for a longer walk but it was raining, and I wound up spending my lunch hour lending my ear to a friend who needed it. So that’s alright.
I managed to still track everything I ate and hydrated decently, so I’m not disappointed. If I can keep intake on track, it’ll be so much easier to get back to the gym when my body allows. That said, I’m realizing that I don’t eat nearly enough fruits and veggies – not lately anyway. That’s gotta change.
I just started using the cleanser two days ago and it’s helped clear and hydrate my skin so quickly and I love the clear skin mask and the Shea moisture monoi oil for my coochie and face and I just tried the Argan oil today and it’s nice like it so far!

Try adding some beauty oil to your brush when you blend it out, it’s really hydrating and help your concealer not to look as dry, it will make it more dewy too xx
