stuff-to-do

Shameless plug? If you’re at all tempted by Shakeology, send me a message and let me know! Today is the last day for a great sale with the 21 Day Fix where it’s only an extra $10 to get both! I plan to start another cycle when we get back from our trip and would love for people to join me! :) 

If you have been following me for a while, you’ll know that I struggle so badly to lose more than even a pound in a month. Well, I weighed in today since I won’t be able to tomorrow and LOOK! Even without being fully dedicated yet (I’ll admit), I lost 3.6 pounds this month! It’s not the 10+ pounds some of my fellow challengers lost, but I am more than happy with this. I am finally seeing movement in the right direction. 

1.1.15 - 189.4 pounds.
2.1.15 - 187.4 pounds.
3.1.15 - 188.4 pounds.
4.1.15 - 186.6 pounds.
5.1.15 - 191.4 pounds.
6.1.15 - 185.0 pounds.
6.30.15 - 181.4 pounds. 

So yeah, I am feeling pretty dang good today. I have a ton to do before we head out, but I have already done a lot of it and just finished a short and sweet 1.5 mile run/walk where the first 10 minutes was running (remember when I used to run?), and then 10 minute extreme abs. It’s crazy how yesterday I felt kind of poopy just with constantly feeling hungry and my loose skin, but now today I saw some progress and know that I’m doing something right. The 21DF and Shakeo have legit helped me more than I had imagined. 

friendly reminder that it’s okay to leave fandoms

friendly reminder that it’s okay to not be as obsessed as other fans

friendly reminder that it’s okay to like things casually, you can like a book/movie/show and never talk about it, it doesn’t mean you liked it any less

friendly reminder that books/movies/shows can inspire original stories and artwork and new hobbies as well as fanart and fic and fandom related hobbies and it is 100% okay to steal parts of a story and make it yours

friendly reminder that you can be any kind of fan you want, including not outwardly looking like a fan

Accepting Doodle Prompts

48 hours from now I’ll start facing airports, flights, and domestic transportation, all of which I’m going to attempt to be awake for (and hopefully Jet Lag will not catch me during my hotel stay in the process). I make no promises, but feel free to send prompts for things to doodle to try to keep myself awake. Seeing as it will be in public, no NSFW prompts allowed. 

Send prompts as an Ask, anons are allowed.

Cute Date Ideas

•Go out to breakfast. See if theyre a french toast person or a pancake person.
•Have a movie date in your backyard with a projector and a white sheet.
•Go to a park and play on the swings. Bring candy.
•Go to a pet store to play with puppies. I’d marry a person on the spot if they offered this date.
•Go to the beach at night and take pictures of the moon. Also take pictures of your date while they arent looking. Its romantic, fuckers.
•Hop on the train and go exploring. This works if you live in a big city. Try not to get too lost.
•Wait for a rainy day. Have a picnic in one of your living rooms. Clear the furniture and lay out a blankie. Be careful not to spill stuff.
•Go to the library. Get library cards together if you dont already have them. Pick one book for the other to read.

Time for a break

When you see this post:

-Get up
-Get off the computer or put down the phone or whatever you’re using
-Stretch, shake those muscles out
-Go get a drink of water and a breath of fresh air
-Eat something, if you haven’t for awhile
-Talk to a real human, or a pet, or your stuffed moose, whatever’s around. Exercise those vocal cords
-Take a moment to check if there’s anything important that needs attention (kid, pet, oven left on, essay that’s due tomorrow, etc.)
-If there is, go take care of it

Okay, you can go back to blogging now!! Love you all! ❤️
