i only like it when it snows a lot

A tip about cardio!

When I thought about cardio I really only thought about running, and man tbh I’m not a huge fan of running, never felt like I was “good” at running, and just never thought my body would look “good” while running. SO I wanna tell you first off although running is amazing for you, there are a lot of other cardio workouts you can do! But here is some tips of how I learned to start running, and feel more confident in running!

1. Fast walking on treadmill or outside!! Since where I live theres snow/ice everywhere I walked on the treadmill with an incline of 7.5-8.5 and did intervals of speed 2.8-3.0-3.5+ (switched speed every 4 minutes) and started with 20 mins! Then for a week I added 4 more mins! This kept my heart rate up and made me do a slight jog!

2. The elliptical!!! If you don’t feel “confident” running at the gym or outside yet an elliptical is a great start (and what I did!) It helped me increase my endurance and gave me a great workout! I always go on the intervals setting, and started w/ 20mins on the elliptical, then each day add 5mins till I go for 60mins every time now!

3. Now time for the treadmill! After doing each step for a week when I went on the treadmills and did intervals (running/fast walking) I felt a lot more confident, my endurance felt stronger, and I felt more stronger doing cardio! I do intervals for 25 minutes (which was a comfortable starting time) and now I increase every day +3!

Hope this helps!

One of them’s been tricked her whole life only to have them try to take her forcefully away, and the other’s been used as a maid until she got kicked out and became a “mom”…it’s not like you’re gonna get the throne even when you go back to the kingdom, so just grab each other’s hand and leave~

I had a lot of thoughts while drawing this but now that I’m done…idk maybe I just wanted to see Disney femslash”

Snow had finally fallen in New York, and I couldn’t be happier. I was on my way home from work at the bookstore a few blocks down, when I spotted some very familiar figures hiding behind a bench, chuckling among themselves. 

 Slowly I snuck up on them, their attention obviously elsewhere, but just as I was only a couple of meters away from them, something hit me in my shoulder. Quickly looking down I noticed snow sticking to my jacket. 

 «Ha! I got you.» Yet another one of my friends shouted from another bench not far away. 

 «Snowball fight?» I shouted at them, to which they eagerly nodded. 

 «Well, count me in!» I shouted back at them as I swiftly scooped up a handful of snow, forming it into a ball. 

«You’re on my team, Y/n.» I nodded and jogged over to my team, throwing my bag together with the others. 

 ~ 

We had somehow moved away from the benches and towards one of the buildings during our fight, in which I had gotten some solid hits in if I could say so myself. Not that they hadn’t either. 

 When one of my friends on the other team had hit me in the neck not long ago, some of the snow had slipped down into my jacket, distracting me enough for them to get another hit in.

 I took another pre made snowball into my hands, getting ready to throw it at my friend who was standing by the corner of the building, a snowball in the making in his hands. With as much power I could muster I threw the snowball at him, but just to my luck he saw it coming and ducked, only for my snowball to hit a guy coming around the corner.

 The guy I had hit slowly turned his head to look at me, a murderous look on his face. Slowly he crouched down to the ground, picket up some snow, all the while keeping eye contact with me. 

 My friends around me had gotten awfully silent. Without me noticing it, the guy had made a snowball and before I could react the snowball came hurdling towards with an amazing speed, hitting me in the head. 

Luckily it was a soft one.   

The guy I had hit started laughing, his eyes twinkling in joy. Soon he was playing with us, throwing ball after ball without a miss. We were all having a lot of fun, and the snowball fight which had started out as long distance, turned into close combat.

 We had started with proper snowballs what we now threw was more just whatever snow we got up from the ground in whatever shape we managed to shape it in before we had to throw them. 

 All of a sudden without me managing to react one of my friends collided with the new guy, who had at one point said his name was Alec, and Alec stumbled into me, making me fall to the ground, with him on top of me. Both of us started wide eyed at each other were we lay with our faces inches apart, the «snowball» fight still going on around us. 

 Our noses brushed against each other when Alec moved slightly above me so he wouldn’t crush me below him. 

We both chuckled, both trying to get up at the same time. 

That was until one of my friends yet again managed to bump into a half sitting slash laying on top of me Alec with little balance, making him yet again fall on top of me, only this time it wasn’t just our noses that bumped; it was our lips.

As Michael Bolton continued to sing about going the distance, Mitch continued to ignore you.

i know you don't write the show, but i'd like your opinion from all you've heard&know. do you think the big cs adventure is in fact killian's solo adventure-a&e just mislead csers- & that he just might embark alone on it b/c he might be hurt from a possible rejection? i mean, i could see it happening-he proposes, em says no&he just goes off- especially when listening to col& jen's intvws from atvfest, where they said cs will struggle. i know u only ship snowing but pls bear w/ me. i'm worried :|

I wish I could say more, but like I said we know there’s A CS adventure but I dont even know why people think CS would be separated? Maybe coz Colin filmed a lot with Aladdin crew? But I haven’t really heard any confirmation that the two (CS) get separated? Sorry I’m a little disoriented! I’m just catching up from having been on vacation for 3wks.

Reasons Why Basilton Pitch is a Vampire:
  1. His teeth are not normal; trust me, i’ve spent A LOT of time looking at his mouth
  2. He goes into the catacombs. like. all the time. It’s weird!!
  3. He is too attractive. A normal person just could not be that pretty?
  4. He is so quiet. Like he comes into the room, gets pajamas, and goes into the bathroom, and i only know he’s there when I hear the shower turn on! 
  5. Did i mention how handsome he was? It can’t be natural. And so graceful too. So much grace.
  6. Have you seen him? He looks like a vampire halloween costume. He even has a widows peak, for god’s sake
  7. He is Just So Mean

I will update this list as new evidence emerges

He is literally reaching behind his back to untie his apron springs because it is finally time to close—good God, he hadn’t realized how much work this would be—when a girl storms in like a hurricane, getting mud and snow all over his just swept floor and he watches in horror as she rips the beanie off her long dark red hair and collapses onto a bar stool.

“Er—” he starts, but she is already speaking.

“Look, I’m really sorry and I know this is an awful thing to do because you’re about to close and I’m so sorry but can I please please please have whatever kind of coffee has the most caffeine because this has been possibly the worst day of my life, like a three-flavor-shots kind of bad day and I—I can make it myself, if you want, I used to be a barista in high school or I can help you close—actually I would love to do that because I have a very great need to clean something but I currently have an even greater need for coffee so—please?”

And then she’s staring up at him with bright green eyes—and seriously are those real because no one has eyes that green—and he gives a beleaguered sigh before retying his apron, measuring out espresso, pumping three different flavors into a cup. “What kind of milk?”

anonymous asked:

Is it true that in northern europe there is snow all year? Because I've only seen it in films/pics and fascinates me, one of my goals is to travell to a country where there's snow. How does it feel when you touch it, is it like a dough? When there's a lot can you like jump to the snow like with water in a pool? I'm sorry if all this is strange but where I live winter doesn't exist and in films they always show such beautiful snowy winters. Is snow as beautiful in real life as in films?

Hi anon,

Well, there are some places where there’s snow all year round, but not where I’m from. When I was a child we had very cold winters, but with global warming things are really easing up around here. We’ll have a couple of cold weeks, and right now we have snow, but it’s not all year round at all. You’d have to go pretty far north to find snow all year, like Arctic circle style I think. 

Touching snow is like, well, how would you describe it? It’s say it’s like freezing shredded cotton wool, and it sort of makes a crackling noise when you touch it, or if you walk on it. When there’s a lot of snow it get’s quite heavy, so you can’t just jump into it - it’s pretty dense, only the top layer is loose and powdery (does that make sense? I don’t know if it does…) Also to find snow of that volume, again you’d have to go further north than where I’m at. 

I think the most beautiful thing about snow is that when it’s coming down really heavy, it encloses everything and it brings with it a peculiar sense of quiet. Also the snowflakes form very beautiful little crystals that you can spend hours looking at.

anyways im dying there is too much snow please release me from this icy hell

Season 6 CS Predictions

So A&E have repeatedly said that the finale and season 6 are going to feel a lot like season 1 right?

Well it definitely makes sense after watching that finale. Only this time instead of Snowing vs the Evil Queen, it’ll be Captain Swan vs the Evil Queen.

Some points to consider:

  • The pilot started off with a TLK between Charming and Snow. And who put Snow under that sleeping curse? The Evil Queen. Think it was a coincidence that Regina said “worried I might make you take an eternal nap” to Emma when she was about to prick her finger with a needle (aka the old way of administering a sleeping curse)? Absolutely not. Captain Swan, though confirmed true love in 5x20, hasn’t had that rainbow whoosh that every other true love couple has shared so far. These two have become a very centric part of the show, and it would be a damn shame if they didn’t get one at all. I feel a curse where one has to wake the other with TLK is coming for CS in S6.
  • Let’s also not forget that after Snow was woken from the sleeping curse, Charming proposed (not in the pilot but still in season 1.) Jen has joked that Emma would probably be the one to ask Killian to marry her but I DO think there is truth to that. After all, we thought she was joking at SDCC when she said Emma would suck Killian into the darkness with her and look what happened. It would be fitting for Emma to follow in her parent’s footsteps and have a proposal after being woken from a curse by her true love (Mr. Killian fucking Jones.)
  • The pilot also showed Snowing’s wedding (that the Evil Queen oh so cheerfully interrupted.) The framing of that last lift kiss with CS was most definitely NOT a coincidence. That wedding dress in between Killian and Emma was absolutely intentional and most definitely foreshadowing a CS wedding (anyone who’s familiar with film could recognize that.) I mean I swear to god, if after all the foreshadowing in season 5 with Liam’s ring and the Camelot dress and the OBVIOUS FUCKING WEDDING DRESS IN THE WINDOW in that lift kiss and we do not get a a proposal/wedding in season 6, I will legit march my ass to the ABC studios and have a very serious word with A&E. But I have VERY good reason to believe that a CS wedding is coming our way.
  • Now this one’s a stretch, but a baby for CS is something not so heavily foreshadowed (at all actually) at this stage, but definitely possible, at least by the very end of season 6. I personally see the show going 7 seasons at most, and that the last season would just be everybody’s happy ending. If Captain Swan is to truly parallel Snowing next season, maybe settling down with family is something we might see. It won’t necessarily be in the same context as Snowing (where they were still being terrorized by the Evil Queen but chose to have a child as a way to show that they still believed in good and were not backing down,) but if after all this shit and Captain Swan decides they’re ready for their own family, I’d be here for it. What better way to celebrate hope and true happiness than with a family?

The Evil Queen was such a pivotal character in season 1. By bringing her back, it is indeed almost like season 1 because the first season revolved so much around her and battle against good. Snow was the one trying to defeat the Evil Queen in season 1. Now it will be Emma. The final battle that Rumple alluded to back in that cell in the the EF? That’s happening next season. WAR that will finally and truly end the Evil Queen and truly bring the show full circle is going to happen.

Not going to lie, I was initially very underwhelmed by what happened in the S5 finale, but after letting it sit for a while, it makes sense.

This finale set up season 6 in a way that will allow the writers to almost tell the story of Once Upon A Time from the beginning again (from season 1,) only this time, Emma and Killian will be paralleling her parents’ fight against the Evil Queen. 

I’m actually very excited about this, because now there is legit reason for all the good stuff that we’ve been waiting for to happen. And it absolutely makes sense and is no better way to do so than by paralleling Emma’s parents, the first and major true love couple of the series.

I get really a lot of stage fright in front of other people, but for some reason I can only sing when I’m in the shower like I did in the movie or when I’m in the car. I can really sing in the car and I always am wondering where all the other car singers are when I drive around because I’m singing in the car but no one else is singing in the car ever - Every once in a while, but I do the thing where I rock out and I feel like I just have like a total-face situation going on.

  • luv that horse (a lot)

rachel–duncan came up with song titles. Originally from here. 
I saw the original promo photo and I just had to make this.

I realized something this week as the writers took the time to show us Emma on the outside looking in while the rest of her family and friends were together inside Granny’s.

By putting her inside that wardrobe, Snow and Charming may have not only given her the destiny of being the savior, but they also may have given her the destiny of being the only person who could defeat the dark one curse once and for all.
