yesterday my roommate found and subsequently lost a cockroach in our dorm and then left me alone to deal with it
so i googled some shit and fucking macgver’d the hell out of a roach trap with a salsa jar, some soda, and a packet of KY lube
when brett got home at like 2am i was fuckin hellishly explaining in precise detail how the trap worked (i was very very sleep deprived) as the roach would be able to climb up the paper towel wrapped around the outside of the jar to satisfy his lust for soda, but once he got in there’d be no escape as he would be unable to scale my lubricated glass jar walls. i guaranteed (a little hastily) that this would catch him overnight with 100% certainty
this morning when i got out of bed my first and only thought was to go check and see if i got him and it was in that moment i stopped and kinda felt like i hit the pinnacle of college lifestyle. what the fuck was i doing. like what kind of life was i leading where i am getting up at 8 in the morning out of pure exhilaration like a fucking child on christmas morning checking if santa came and left presents under the tree except i’m going to check the garbage salsa jar to see if theres a well lubricated roach slurpin on my soda. what life am i living where that end result would be the highlight of my day, would feel like an achievement
anyways the roach isnt in the jar and im disappointed
I just loved how Kara snuggled into Mon-el in this scene. 😍 She was so down and needed someone to just be with her at that moment. 😢 She fits so perfectly in his arms and looked so contented in his embrace. 😍
Eat 3 meals a day and if you really need to snack in between then eat something healthy or low calorie. For example: fruit, crackers, nuts.
Drink as much water as possible. It’s good for weight loss but also it’s healthy, good for your skin, hair and nails.
When you first start exercising then start slow. Maybe a 20 minute work out and the gradually increase the intensity and length. Exercise at least twice a week.
Allow yourself to eat unhealthily every once in a while. If your doing well and your body is healthy and your where you want to be then treat yourself. Eat a pizza yourself. Have chocolate and sweets and soda. Life is for living so eat what you want.
Keep realistic standards. Your not going to lose 100 pounds in a week. Even if you lose 1 pound in a week, progress is progress no matter how small.
Do it for you. Don’t try to lose weight for anyone. If you want to be healthy then do it for you. If your happy with whatever size you are then you do you. You’re beautiful no matter what you look like. Society just has unrealistic standards.
listen. sometimes it’s going to be so hard you’re going to come home, cry, and question your entire being. you’re going to let yourself down. it’s going to feel absolutely crushing.
and then time will move it all under the carpet. you’re going to drink some water, get more sleep. you’ll pet a dog and laugh at a dumb joke your friend tell you. these small moments will be your saviour. catch them in the palm of your hands and hold them like the most precious thing you own.
just give it some time, my love. give it a little bit more time.

Dear girl trying to get back in shape,
I know it’s hard. I know the hardest thing you may do all day is walk into the gym. I know how easy it is to want to give up and go eat Chicken McNuggets, but don’t do it. I know it feels like you work so hard and get no where. I know how frustrating it is to see that person across the table from you eat a Big Mac every day while you eat your carrots and still be half of your size. I know that awful feeling where you don’t want to go to the gym because you know how out of shape you are. Trust me, I know.
The important thing is you are doing something about it. I’m sure you get mad at yourself for letting your body get this out of shape, but life happens. You have made a huge accomplishment by not having a soda in over a month, and those small changes are huge. I understand how hard it is, I understand how frustrating it is to not see results and I understand why you want to give up. Being healthy and fit takes so much time. As much as I wish you could wake up the day after a good workout with the 6 pack of your dreams, that just isn’t the reality. If being healthy was easy, everyone would do it, and it wouldn’t feel so good when you got there.
Remember how last January your resolution was to get back in the gym and get healthy again? Think about how incredible you would look right now if you would have stuck with it. The great thing is that you can start any time, and you can prove yourself wrong.
Tired of starting over? Then don’t give up.
You are only as strong as your mind. You will get there one day. Just be patient and keep working.
