my life is what this soup is

This was not the first time I tried to lose weight. It wasn’t the fifth or even the tenth time. I’d tried every diet from South Beach to North Pole. Shakes, soups, supplements and starving plans and even when I’d lose some weight, I’d run out of steam a few weeks in and all the pounds would come back and bring friends.

My biggest problems was my goal. I would set a goal weight and know what I shouldn’t or couldn’t eat on a diet but I didn’t really have a clear picture of what my life looked like at that goal weight. What would I eat? What would maintenance look like? How would I move/stay fit? How did I want to live? How would I make this last forever?

For me, I decided to actuality write out rules for myself, focusing MORE on the DOs than the DON'Ts.

Weight Loss plans focus 90% on the DON'Ts. Instead of feeling deprived, I focused on feeling empowered. I could eat all these incredible foods. I sought after desirable things instead of being so focused on avoiding things that were bad for me.

Here’s a challenge: stop talking and thinking about restrictions and focus on what you DO instead on what you DON’T and instead of trying to STOP being something, you’ll see that you’re focused on BECOMING and CREATING.

Hey, did you know that Cas made Dean and Sam chicken soup? Sam says: I don't think we have the kind of mom who's gonna stay home and make us chicken soup for dinner, you know? And Dean makes a facial expression and Sam asks: You talk to Cas yet? And Dean says No. Then Sam is like: So, what, you're just gonna keep walking past each other in the kitchen(where he makes our chicken soup)not saying a word? Dean: Maybe. So if you didn't know that Cas makes chicken soup, now you do

… This has changed my life

What are everyone’s safe foods? I’m really curious if I have any that are the same as anyone else. (Mine are basically chicken noodle soup, chicken ramen noodles, applesauce, and plainer cereals like life or cheerios). I have other foods that are safe, but not the kind of safe like “I feel like I might literally be dying but I should probably eat something” foods, those are my main ones.

What was your human name though or was it just “Nikki”

Hahaha yeah, it was Nikki. It was LITERALLY ME, like the X-Men broke through dimensional barriers and I’m like “OH MY GOD WOLVERINE’S IN MY LIVING ROOM TAKE ME WITH YOU” and shit, it was very sad.

Does Will Smith know about soup? I’ve been stressing out all day because what if he’s lives his entire life ignorant to soup. I mean, soup is so good! The poor boy mightn’t be aware of it’s existence. How would you describe soup to one who doesn’t know what it is? Maybe “cereal but with vegetables?”

anonymous asked:

friends that inspire you

all of them. they all inspire me in different ways. eva ( @fruit4pals ) inspires me to go out on more picnics and make life bigger then what’s on my phone screen. dakotah ( @dakhere ) inspires me to write more and put myself first. emily ( @the-alphabet-soup ) inspires me to laugh as much as i can and fall in love with every art piece. kayla ( @special-kay ) inspires to me to take no shit. celia ( @midnightlucille ) inspires me to love unconditionally, and be silly. god i could go on, but here are a few :-).

at first i was like wtf is this ask but now im seeing your point, does he know? how do we ask him? should we make him some soup? can we make him a good bowl of soup if we dont know his favourite kind? what if we made chicken soup and he’s more of a tomato guy???

anonymous asked:

Which parts of Voyager and Drums are you most looking forward to seeing in seasons 3 and 4?

This is less a post about what I’m looking forward to and more of a, “Here’s what I really, REALLY hope they keep.”

  • More than anything else: Claire’s life in the 20th century! The clothes, her house —how does Claire B decorate her home?! I must know these things. And then Joe and (especially) the final fight with Frank, the hospital scene.
  • Claire’s letter to Bree. Don’t know how they’d incorporate it into the show, but it’s a favorite of mine.
  • Turtle soup!!!
  • I really hope they keep the plague ship bc Claire is so hilariously sassy there. See my blog title and this post.
  • The Governor’s Ball.
  • Fergus and Marsali’s wedding.
  • “Damn you, Sassenach!…Damn you, I swear if ye die on me, I’ll kill you!”
  • …And of course, the printshop!

Haven’t gotten far enough in my Drums reread to be able to list any particulars other than Nayawenne and her prophecy.

fave quotes from my philosophy teacher

[while clutching his tshirt and shaking his fist] CONCEPTUALIZE

[with conviction] soup is NOT ice cream. there’s a DIFFERENCE here.

if you’ve ever done psychedelic or hallucinatory drugs you know exactly what im talking about

there are aliens in the andromeda galaxy that like nic cage movies

humans can scream real loud but that’s not echolocation

[after writing TiTs on the whiteboard] it stands for things in themselves. shh, it’s a real philosophical worldview.

[softly] FUCK IF I KNOW

anonymous asked:

What is your favorite soup?

I am, alas, not a fan of soup.

However, back in 2000, I went on a school trip to see Paul Gross’ Hamlet at the Stratford Festival, and before the show started, we had some time to wander around and get food.

I stopped off in a little pub called The Boar’s Head, and for the first time in my life, I actually ordered soup (probably because it was the lowest priced item and I was a broke-ass student).

It was Potato Bacon, it was made entirely on-site, and it was AMAZING.

So, short answer: My favourite soup is The Boar’s Head Potato Bacon Soup from the year 2000.

Positives for the day are pretty tough, cos I’ve been ill all day…

- found some chicken soup in the cupboard, this was a great win as I didn’t have the strength to leave the house
- my friend from work, Kris, brought me painkillers to my flat, what a hero and life saver.
- I’ve spent most of the day napping, so I’m quite well rested, still need more
- cos I’m ill now it means I won’t be ill in America 😊
- got a nice message on here from a follower
- I had lots of toast with peanut butter and banana, love that stuff
- I had a short lush bath, big blue

Memory

Hindsight is 20/20 or so I’m told.
It’s like a dream while still awake.
I still can’t seem to find what I need in a dream.
While need matures into a simple desire and feelings whither away, what I was looking for comes out as if it had been the one searching but I can’t meet the gaze.
Time seems to distort the truth as feelings become reality and even that just becomes an abstract ideal that becomes the rhythm of my life.
The colors shift and days melt down into a ring of condensation from a glass on the table.
Oh when I dream I don’t see this, it’s only in my waking hours that this reality of everything and still nothing like a primordial soup that I drink up before a new universe can be borne and leave me alone in new silence.
When I full under this is what I see, it’s desires and hopes, it’s aspirations and dreams, sometimes I miss them, other times I wish I could rip it from my skull.
Mostly they haunt me because of you, your face, eyes scanning for something you need more than what’s on the surface, greedy to consume all that you can of me.
I let them, I know it’s in the past yet in all of these dreams of waking they still grip my mind and clamp it down for another ride and another yet I still know it will never happen again, it’s all just a bad memory.
