How did I lose the weight?

I really hate to be redundant, because I’m sure you’ve been told this plenty of times already, (and so have I), but it is the actual answer: eat healthier foods and smaller portions, and exercise HARD at least 3-4 times a week. 

I think it is especially important to add heavy lifting training into your fitness regime because it will shape your body better than an all cardio schedule. Also, muscle burns more calories even while resting so the more muscle you have, the faster you will see change! I heavy lift at least 3 times a week now, and that jump started my weight loss. Cardio is still done, but I do less endurance cardio (just running for a long time at a normal pace), and more high intensity cardio. For example, I will do short sprints at my fastest pace for 1/8 of a mile, then walk the rest of the lap. Then I will repeat this until I’ve finished one mile, usually. It is healthier for your heart to learn how to beat faster and then cool down faster, too. This will actually reduce your resting BPM, which is very healthy for your heart! 

I also take pro-biotics daily now, and it has helped my stomach immensely and therefore helped my metabolism. That coupled with a daily multi-vitamin and LOTS of water has helped my body and mind feel better in general. I drink a lot of coffee, too, so I have to remember to drink DOUBLE the water for each coffee. So many bathroom breaks. So worth it. 

I started using the app/website MyFitnessPal to track my intake and my output! I have a 67 day streak going on right now for logging my meals and my exercise. I find that app extremely helpful because it is encouraging and it tells you if you are eating enough/too little, not just if you are eating too much. It really is a good app for your health, and I think it has a good social community too that keeps me motivated! Before using MFP, I never thought too much about what I was putting into my body and my workouts were not as regimented. This made it harder for me to lose weight in a pleasing pattern. Now the scale goes down about 1 pound each week. That is a super healthy pattern of weight loss because it is not too fast. 

However, I do not want to just lose weight! When I reach my desired weight, a healthy BMI, I wish to gain a little back in muscle. More muscle = MORE FOOD. And I sure do love food. 

I hope this helps! Any other questions more specifically aimed at my diet and exercise, please feel free to ask me! 

March 26th Atlus Stream predictions

Ok I’m calling it on these games that are most likely to happen (at least this year) and these are new games (minus Persona ports or remasters, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we got a few of those):

  • P3D (they’ve had like a year+ to work on it behind the scenes and have teased it, so I wouldn’t be surprised if we got it)
  • Catherine 2 (years ago they stated the would make it a franchise, each year it’s gets more unlikely but I’d love it to happen)
  • Deviliser (back in 2013 they trademarked this name, I’m thinking it’s SMT related imo or a new ip, heck didn’t they announce an SMT game for the 3DS? It could be this)
  • Project Re Fantasy (or at least a look into it, gameplay or story wise)
  • Maaaaaybe a P5 spinoff game (be it a crossover with P3 and/or 4 or by itself, that or they’ll be waiting till 2018 to do a few of them)
  • Maybe a P5 sequel (probably a spinoff game but yeah they might have one in the works, but I’m still aiming for that to be 2018)
  • P5 expansion DLCs
  • SMT port/remaster (to 3DS or Switch, hey I said minus Persona ports/remasters)
  • Devil Survivor/DDS/Devil Summoner or another Megaten game port/remaster or sequel
  • Another P3/4 spinoff game (one that ties up, or help ties up loose plot threads and maybe sets the stage for a P3/4/5 crossover game)
  • P5 anime announced (not game but I’m waiting Altus :/)
  • P4 Arena/Q/Ultimax anime announced (C’mon Atlus do the Labyrinth trilogy please)
  • P3 The Answer movie or anime announced (still waiting Atlus)

I don't think it's too much of a stretch to say that White Rose is also being written as a romance, although it's subtle and still early (in its setup phase). For one of many examples, throughout volume 4 both of their scenes are shown together, and their journeys parallel specifically each other's. And during them, at several points, they were shown to be thinking of specifically each other ( "Thank you Schnee Dust Company" in chapter 1 and Weiss summoning the boarbatusk scenes come to mind ).

I’d agree with that. It’s more of like…I don’t want to invest too much because I don’t think Ruby’s story is about romance in any way - at least not yet. 

The thing for me though is like…every partnership has that kind of bond that could easily transition to romantic. It’s that important. I honestly kind of ship all the partners/pairs. 

Ruby’s moment when Nora brings up the SDC and she suddenly gets lost in thought and it transitions to Weiss is a great bit though for sure. 

anonymous asked:

Being left handed is important to his character to lefties because he's the only good role model we have. Other left handed characters are usually crazy, evil, or both.

Um…where have you been?

Dunban uses his left in Xenoblade, since he lost his right.

Super Smash Bros 4 Mega Man is an implied lefty because he shoots with his left

Phoenix Wright uses his left hand for all of his animations.

Those are game ones off the top of my head. There are probably more with a google search. With shows and cartoons, again out of my memory you got at least:

Bart Simpson

Hiccup from HTTYD

So…yeah. To say that Link is the ONLY left handed protagonist is wrong. 

So the first woman to get a phd at georgia tech got it in like 1970 and it was in physics. She had to sue the school to be allowed to get it.

It is 47 years later. I am pretty sure we have only graduated ~ 10 women physics phd students since then. At least 4 of them have been since my time here…

Reply with five things that make you happy and send this to the last ten people in your notes. 💛 💛 💛 💛

aw thanks! hmmm…

1. I like looking for dub versions of songs and when I find one that’s juuuuust right

2. I like finding cozy spots. It’s more than a comfortable sort of thing… kinda hard to explain but I’m using my hands a lot to describe it to the cat. it’s a nice happy space. idk. look for one, you’ll see.

3. experimenting with cooking or at least concocting new food. I made chorizo burgers tonight and apparently they’re a hit with the ladies, amirte @repconn?

4. ummmm definitely dogs. any- no look at me- any situation can be improved with dogs

5. not needing to do anything. whenever I don’t have to do something then I am happiest. I’ve let executive dysfunction and depression and chronic pain take a hold of my life. I’ve given up and everything hurts so….. whenever I can lie down and not feel like shit because I’m not doing something I could be doing because I’ve nothing to do, then I feel happy. I’m at ease. I’m okay for a little while

7 Incredible Things About Black Genetics That Will Amaze You

1. Black people are genetically stronger.

2. Black people have more genetic diversity.

3. Black genes prove the first humans are at least 70% older than previously estimated.

4. Black babies advance earlier and faster.

5. The miracles of melanin.

6. West Africans are genetically better sprinters.

7. Kenyans are genetically proven to have high endurance.


White people can’t handle the truth about their inherent inferiority to black people so they always try to downplay our abilities and qualities.

I like seeing important facts like this. I’ve only seen something like this once or twice over the years in white-owned media.

And such information gives me strength and helps me to become more proud of my blackness despite some things that people like to talk about us.


@yall saying Yuri has a low alcohol tolerance: nahhh if he did he’d be pretty done in after 3-4 glasses like me. My more tolerant friends would be probably drunk at around 12. Yuri’s problem is he can’t control himself.
This sinnamon roll drank *16* glasses (at least) of fizzy-af ~12% champagne, which is basically THREE BOTTLES. This is also the equivalent of doing ~16 shots, which in any time span, is Not Good™.
And this fucker proceeds to CONTINUE DRINKING ANOTHER BOTTLE.
What amazes me about Yuri Katsuki? That he’s not fucking dead. How did he not land in the hospital? Where did he learn to drink like this? Detroit fucked him up.

*staring at long list of homework/projects I’ve already committed to but haven’t worked on* maybe now’s the right time to try out Duolingo Hebrew

Tips to Stop Procrastinating

1. If you’re procrastinating because you’re feeling stuck (eg, if you don’t really understand a school assignment, or you don’t know what’s expected, or you don’t know where to start) then pluck up the courage to ask for some help. When you know what you’re doing, it’s easier to work.

2. Remind yourself that most decisions aren’t major. If you get it wrong, you can start over again … or change your direction … or have another try.

3. If the task seems overwhelming, just take a baby step. That, at least, will get you moving – so the next step’s easier.

4. Tell yourself that you can suffer for up to twenty minutes – and then you’ll return to doing things you want to do. You’ll be surprised to discover that “suffering’s” not that bad.

5. Decide to do the task as soon as you get up – as the more you put it off, the worse it’s going to seem!

6. Don’t pretend that other work counts just as much as what you’re leaving. Simply acting like you’re busy won’t make it go away. Be honest with yourself … and do what’s most important first.

17 things to remember in 2017:

1. The nicer you are the more beautiful you become
2. Time invested in yourself is never time wasted
3. Your grades do not define your intelligence
4. Surround yourself with people who help you grow
5. Cutting ties with people you’ve held onto for too long will prevent future rope burns
6. Live for the small things like laughing too hard or going on midnight drives
7. Learn to listen to the music of the moment or you might just miss it
8. Never lose hope
9. Sometimes you have to let people go, not because you don’t care, but because they don’t
10. Be honest; genuinely honest to yourself and those around you
11. Your worth is not determined my other people’s inability to see it
12. There is beauty in simplicity
13. Kill the part of yourself that makes you think you can’t move on
14. The biggest battle you’ll fight is the one between who you are now and who you want to become
15. They’ll see how you affected their life much later
16. Be fearless and courageous; fight for what you love and want
17. Love is not a weakness: ever

How to Love Yourself More

1. Set aside some time to think through why you feel you’re not good enough, or don’t deserve to be loved. Then actively counter each of those reasons. This is a really crucial step for you to take.

2. Make a list of at least 10 of your positive traits and strengths. Each day, add at least 2 more items to your list.

3. Commit to only saying positive and affirming things about yourself – that is, your face, your body, your personality, your abilities, and so on.

4. Each day, tell your body how much you appreciate it.

5. Hold your head high, smile, look people in the eye, and always speak slowly, and with confidence.

6. Have the courage to list and face some of the worst mistakes you’ve made, or some of the challenges you’ve found hard to overcome. Then, gently admit to yourself that you are not perfect. In fact, none of us is perfect, and we all start from different places in life. What has been hard for you may have been easy for someone else. Choose to not be so hard on yourself – forgive yourself for EVERYTHING and then just let it go!

7. Go through your closet and experiment with your clothes until you find something that you feel really good in. Choose to wear that – and to buy other outfits that make you feel good about yourself and your appearance. Get rid of clothes that lower your self-confidence or self-esteem.

8. Learn to listen to your body and mind, and treat what they are saying with kindness and respect. If you are tired, rest. If you are feeling worn down or emotionally drained, then withdraw and do something that will help to build you up.

9. Do something nice for yourself each day. Buy yourself some flowers, some new clothes, some music … or go for a jog, get your hair or nails done …. Whatever makes you feel pampered and special and loved.

10. Give yourself permission to say no to the things that make you unhappy, or that your energy.

1. stop comparing yourself to other people. embrace your differences. remember what you have to offer the world. make lists of your good traits. forget what other people can do better and remember what you do good.

2. tell your friends you love and appreciate them more. thank them for listening. thank them for being them. forgive them faster and stop letting petty things get in between your friendships.

3. stop going back to the ex who screwed you over. be friends if you want, but remember they don’t even deserve your friendship. remember you cannot be fixed by the one who broke you.

4. let go of the people who are bringing you down. if a relationship brings you more pain than joy, it’s a toxic relationship. stop putting effort into people who refuse to meet you half way.

5. compliment yourself at least one time every day. try to compliment others every day as well.

6. get serious about your health. eat wheat bread and less sugar. exercise, even if it’s just walking. don’t do this for a flat stomach; do it because it’s good for your health.

7. take care of your mental health. surround yourself with people who make the negative thoughts in your head shut off. ask for help. see a therapist if you need one. take your pills as prescribed.

8. stop letting little things bother you. ask yourself if you’re really going to care about it in five years, and if the answer is no, let go of it. stop wasting time feeling sorry for yourself. sometimes you can’t help but to get upset over things, but when you do, do everything in your power to try to cheer yourself up.

9. use the internet less. read more books. spend more time with your family. spend more time being present and looking people in the eye. look up and appreciate the beauty around you.

10. drink less alcohol. do things with people that doesn’t involve drinking. discover how to have fun sober.

11. start the career you actually want. switch majors, even if you will end up spending more time in school. go back to college if you’re not in it and you want a profession you have to go to college for. i know it’s expensive but the rest of your life is worth it.

12. stop watching life pass you by. learn to say yes and learn to say no. learn to make decisions for yourself. learn to say “i am unhappy where i am so i am changing it.” make the first move. take charge of your life.

13. save more money for things you really want, whether it be a vacation or a new pair of shoes. stop blowing money on things you don’t need. pay your bills on time and avoid the late fees.

14. appreciate the good things in your life. eliminate negative self talk (or at least try to). think about three good things in your life every morning before you get out of bed. stop dwelling on the bad.

15. give your all in everything you do. don’t settle for mediocrity. work every day to be a better person than you were the day before.

—  fifteen new years resolutions you can keep in 2017

okay i am logging out indefinitely until TFP airs (or will at the very least stop posting anything to do with TFP) but i am leaving with 100% confidence in tjlc and here is why:

  • multiple people who went to the screening said it felt off, like bits at the end were missing
  • the tagline of series 4 “it’s not a game anymore” is taken straight from an 80s movie based on the Clue board game, whose theatrical release had three different endings
  • the TFP that we will see on television is supposedly 4 mins (possibly more) longer than what was shown at the screening
  • people who went to the screening of TLD had to sign non disclosure agreements even though the Eurus reveal scene was cut from it
  • why wouldn’t anyone going to the screening of TFP have to sign NDAs if there is meant to be an even bigger reveal??? something fucky is up with that
  • mofftiss knew that spoilers would be leaked no matter what so they definitely did not show the real ending to a small audience three whole days before the world-wide release
  • “television history” “shattering climax” “insane wish fulfilment” “if we can pull it off” “romantic entanglement would complete you as a human being” “people always give up after three”
  • “love conquers all”

with that, i want everyone who has lost confidence to find hope again. trust the writers. they don’t want to let us down. this is all part of their game.
