last time i ate was lunch

“Eating healthy is boring.”
I ate pumpkin pancakes with agave syrup for breakfast, had a chocolate blueberry protein shake with lunch & dinner was turkey chili with all the fixings. Even snuck in a Digestive biscuit or two with tea time.
“I hate working out.”
Last weekend I hiked 3 miles to a fresh water pond, swam for a half hour, hiked back and had brunch.
“Healthy food is expensive.”
You ever bought produce? They’re practically giving bananas away.

Moral of the story: fuck your excuses. I am 10x happier with my lifestyle now than I have been in over 2 decades and I have the results to prove it.

P.s. this is taken after going to London, eating everything in the entire city for a week, coming back and getting back into shape a few weeks later. YES, you are allowed to vacation.

@vero-chan tagged me in a thing! So now I’m gonna force you guys to learn random stuff about me! >:D

1. Are you named after someone?
Nope! Mom just thought Jocelyn was a pretty name

2, When’s the last time you cried?

Yesterday! Yaaay anxiety!! :D

3. Do you like your handwriting?
I think its fine, but the doctors I work with wish I would spend more time on it haha (in hindsight, if DOCTORS are telling me its bad, maybe its kinda bad…)

Keep reading

anonymous asked:

Hey, do you have any advice on eating decently when anxiety is stopping me? Like, I get hungry, but I live in a student house with 7 other people, and our kitchen's tiny, so it's super busy around mealtimes. I want to go down and get food, but being around that many people for that much time terrifies me. So I'm basically living off foods I can keep in my room (breadsticks and peanuts), which I know isn't great but it's better than nothing? Thank you, and I'm sending hugs for you ❤💛💙💚💜

Hugs for you too!

Ohhh, I struggle with this too! I’m trying to remember what I did for the last 2 years in self-catering res… okay, first of all I had a small fridge in my room so having cereal with milk wasn’t a huge problem and then I ate on campus during lunch

I usually cook like a really big meal on the weekends (at a time when no one else is really in the kitchen), so I have enough for a good couple of days - so it’s just a matter of saying “hi” to anyone in the kitchen, give them a smile, heat up my food, and a “bye” to go back to my room and eat in peace

Alternatively, you could also shove earphones in, crank the music, and pretend you didn’t hear/notice them…

Say you have an important test that you have to study for and can’t chat

Am I being helpful? Probably not, if anyone else has other suggestions please comment or send them through!

1 martini lunch

I went out to lunch yesterday with Jn bc now that Jem goes to preschool full-time (4 days instead of 2) our schedules line up that 6 of our 7 children are in school from noon-2:15 on T/Th. I didn’t eat all my meal and planned on having it for dinner last night with a finger of whiskey bc I really felt like the sweetness of Irish whiskey would have balanced well with the dish.

But then it was national pizza day and I was alone to watch Scandal live so dinner was 🍕🍷 instead. Today I ate my noodles but I really was curious if I was right so I poured a little 🥃along side. I rarely even get a chance to eat an actual lunch (usually it’s just like a handful of chips here, a cheese stick there) so I indulged. The baby is taking a late morning nap & it’s Friday ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


Cheers to the sun this weekend. Vitamin D has never felt this good! It’s unseasonably warm…Warm enough to not have to wear a jacket in the middle of February. Banana island is going well. Had a simple banana smoothie in the AM (water, strawberries, 4 bananas), ate 5 solid bananas for lunch, topped it off w/Carrot+Lemon+Orange juice. Overall I feel good and more clear headed. My digestion seems as normal as it can get, but I’ve noticed I’m retaining weight in my lower belly, suggesting constipation or slow bowel transit times. It may just be junk from last week I haven’t been able to eliminate yet or it might be the bananas causing the bulk up. I’ll observe results for 2 more days before switching back to my normal routine, but my joints, mental clarity and energy levels are feeling great.

galrasoldier-x7  asked:

Truth. I am the last person that should be asking this. When's the last time you actually ate?

Send my muse “Truth” and ask them a question they have to answer honestly! If my muse doesn’t want to answer- they have to take off a piece of clothing 

“I-….” Thace cleared his throat, ears flopping down. “……….Yesterday lunch.”


I’ve been doing well but indulged a little last night for vday so today I’m just trying to detox a little and get back into healthy habits.

For breakfast I’m having a protein green smoothie and lunch and dinner are planned. The dog has a vet appointment after work that Dan is taking him to, so I’ll be alone with Gavin and able to just make myself dinner quick. Hopefully he’s home in time for me to go to the late yoga class. If not I’ll try to go to one tomorrow.

Surprisingly I don’t feel too bad about last night - sure I ate pizza (our traditional vday dinner) and too much chocolate but it could have been A LOT worse. Plus I didn’t eat bad at work…. I didn’t turn it into an all day thing. That’s my problem….. I just take the whole day and call it a wash. But I didn’t.

All I can do today is drink some water and move on.

Black beans and rice – a recipe worth repeating

This five-star dish first appeared on this blog five years ago. It’s still a favorite. I made it a few days ago and decided that it was about time to share it again, because I’m sure that about ninety-nine percent of you have never seen it here before.

What you see pictured was my lunch yesterday, complete with avocado and sliced tomatoes. (MIA is the salsa and sour cream that appeared minutes later.) It’s great on its own, but it’s also the perfect accompaniment to a casserole of enchiladas, or rolled up in a burrito. Fair warning - it’s so good it’s highly addictive!

I’m taking the few extra minutes to give you this easy recipe here, rather than linking to the original, primarily because tumblr has given me headaches lately with hyperlinks - hundreds of them disappeared in my directory over the weekend. More about that later.

Happy Tuesday, and bon appétit!

Black beans and rice


  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¾ cup uncooked jasmine or long grain white rice
  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained


Heat the oil and butter in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and rice and continue cooking for another couple of minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Cover, and turn heat to low. Cook for 20 minutes, add the cumin, pepper and black beans, and continue to cook for five more minutes. This can sit off the heat and stay delicious and hot for another 20 minutes.

I’m skipping the gym tonight. I’m pretty sore through my back from both the gym last night and sitting at a desk all day today. 

It was one of those days I just felt gross. That time of the month, my hair is too long and felt messy/dirty and my back was sore. It was once again too hot to be able to go for a walk at lunch so I sat at my desk and ate. I struggle in the afternoons if I don’t get outside at lunch. 

The new skincare I ordered arrived so I am going to go nuts tonight and pamper myself so I feel fresh again.

Still sitting at weight loss calorie range (eating just under maintenance with no exercise).

“What’s this?”
“But why did you make this, Yunho-ya? You didn’t have to…”
“I know, but last time you ate my food, I got to see you smile.
And so, I’ve promised myself that I would make you smile every time I see you.”
“WHAAT??? But why…?
“Do you know how beautiful you are when you smile, Jaejoong-ah? See, like now-”
“Ah. Uhm… I’ll tell you what, I promise to smile for you every time we are together. But only if you let me cook next time, okay?”
“Okay.” ^^

Lunchtime at the “Lucky Cat Cafe.”

Let’s all just pretend that this is the Cafe. XD AND  I’M SORRY FOR SPAMMING YOU GUYS WITH MY FACE. You must be tired of seeing my face.

We ate at Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen for lunch last NexCon and it was DELICIOUS. Random story… The lady who were going to serve us was flipping out a bit. We waited for a table and when she called us, she said: “Table for Hiro and Tadashi!”
And before we sat down, she told us: “I’m a huge fan of the movie!” and it was so amusing because she was so giddy. XD <3

And yeah, it was pretty much a date.

Baytsum is also good for dessert. ewe

I shall get back to drawing now. I promise, these are my last set of photos. I just had to post them separately because reasons. XD

First set of NexCon photos are here! And you can see way more photos in my Facebook. Teehee.

The Littlest Dragon Slayer

A little scared of our trip last year,
to the far northlands, home of the bear.
Mountains, forests and an ice cold lake,
no swimming or castles of sand to make.

Fresh air and sunshine, stars in the sky,
camping and hiking, climb mountains high.
That didn’t sound like much fun to me,
I’d rather visit a nice warm sea.

Drive lasted hours, slumped in the backseat.
We ran out of snacks, then nothing to eat.
We read a new book of funny rhymes,
I fell asleep a couple of times.

Some stories were good, some I got bored,
some I laughed loudly, others I snored.
Arriving late in the darkness of night,
waking early to rising sunlight.

First we ate breakfast then a short hike.
Had lunch with dessert, what’s not to like.
Then a museum of the natives past,
legends of old and now fading fast.

Heard some stories, we saw a show.
My favorite was of long ago,
it was of a little kid like me.
The bravest kid there could ever be.

She was the daughter of the great chief.
He died protecting all from the thief,
who flew in the night stealing their food.
Thus the cause of their thousand year feud.

The girl shortened her father’s long spear.
Then roamed the forest without a fear,
to find who took her father away.
Then slay the dragon, no time for play.

I laid in bed thinking of all I heard.
Remembered most all, details blurred.
Woke the next morning ready to go,
to fill in the blanks I didn’t know.

I went to the shore before sunrise.
I climbed on the rocks. That wasn’t wise.
Had to know if the legend was true,
then fell in from slippery shoe.

Hit the water with a splash and scream.
I floated down and started to dream.
I woke up much later warm and dry.
But there’s no sign of bright morning sky.

I felt all around for a way out.
Then saw light from something’s big snout.
I screamed and jumped, bumped my head and then,
I knew I was in that dragons den.

Her nostrils grew bigger, warm and bright.
Would I be cooked for a tasty bite?
She started to laugh and I to cry.
Was I to live or was I to fry?

She said “Hello” in a dragon tone.
“Glad to see you, I’m always alone.”
I was much surprised to hear her speak.
Her nature was gentle, almost meek.

Now in the brightness of her warm light.
We sat and chatted into the night.
She told me the truths I had to know.
And when she’s done burping I could go.

Dragons can wait to burp but it’s slow.
Or blow out flames with a mighty glow.
A truly bad idea, we both think.
So we waited for her belly to shrink.

We waited and waited for hours or more.
So she could shrink and unblock the door.
And when most all of her gas gone away,
I could slip out to the light of day.

By now it’s late and dragon’s still plump.
Rocks all around, I sat on my rump.
She spoke of the last to be with her -
It was the littlest dragon slayer.

“She was three feet tall and very bold,
Not much more than eight or nine years old.
She charged at me with her tiny spear,
tears pouring down, she showed no fear.

She plunged the stick in my outstretched paw.
She tried pulling it out to poke me some more.
The tip broke off; I’ve had it since then,
tucked away safe in my dragons den.

The girls cause noble though a mistake.
Her dear father’s life I didn’t take.
He chased me into the dark of night.
Belly swollen, I couldn’t take flight.

I ran and ran then climbed a tall tree.
But the brave young chief followed me.
He heard some chicks cry out on a limb.
Surviving the wind their chance’s grim.

Was the branch to weak, he couldn’t be sure.
But reached for the nest and made it secure.
He was a brave man, doing his best.
But fell to his death saving the nest.

The small girl glad to know what was right.
But she’s still very sad at her loss that night.
It wasn’t my fault but I share the blame.
Though sad, she forgave me all the same.

While in the forest the rest of that day,
we planned how to keep others away.
I promised to sleep most of the year,
hiding when there are people to scare.

The slayer agreed to spare my soul.
Keeping her friendship is my life’s goal.
She would try to visit when she could,
into the darkness of the night wood.

I gave her a claw as proof of who won -
that famous dragon slaying mission.
She wore it always and was admired by all”
I said it was now on the museum’s wall.

The dragon then shared more of her life,
her times of happiness, times of strife.
There’s never to be any flying at all.
Unless to answer another dragons call.

Said she’s free to swim under the ice,
but never when the weather is nice.
And while out for her last swim of the year.
I fell in and she found me there.

She brought me back to her little den,
where she’d hibernate all over again.
Our chat ended as her eyes turned red,
her tummy stirring, she warmly said.

“Please take the tip of the slayers spear,
So you can recall your time spent here.
Think of me fondly now that we’re friends.
And trust that a dragon’s love never ends.”

She finally burped, I held my nose,
but that’s how a dragon friendship goes.
Then out the backdoor and into the wood,
I ran as fast as ever I could.

Now thinking, of course of mom and dad,
the sooner I’m back the less they’ll be sad.
Then the rangers soon found me safe and sound.
They were all happy I hadn’t drowned.

Back at the camp we all hugged and kissed.
I was safe and assured I was missed.
But then all the questions that they had -
Over and over until I got mad!

They didn’t believe my dragon tale.
I showed them my proof to no avail.
It was thought that my memories blurred -
by all the stories that I had heard.

Tales of dragons and slayers in the night,
all normal causes of a child’s fright.
A doctor checked the bump on my head,
then sent me back home for time in bed.

I’m glad for the friendship of a dragon.
But all in all it wasn’t much fun.
I’ve learned new things and a good lesson had.
That a kid all alone is very very bad!

And now I’ve shared my legend with you.
Like the slayer’s, it’s mostly all true.
But if you don’t believe I’m sincere -
I’ll show you the tip of that little spear.
