version 2 of an old post

@bellarisatk replied to your post: @westcoaststartinganew replied to your post: …

You DO need to track your carb macro count on Atkins! 20 g or less per day for induction, then you add 5g at a time until you find the level that either keeps you losing or maintains your goal weight :)

I’m doing the old old old version of Atkins (the 2002 book, I think?) where you have 2-3 cups of salad vegetables and 1 cup of another low-carb vegetable per day and then stick to the acceptable food list. This is the version I did ten-ish years ago that really worked for me. No counting needed, which I love, and it encourages you to eat real food instead of the bars or shakes.

Today you can download a new version of the season enabled skylines. As you can see from the version number, it’s not a huge update. Here’s the changelog:

- The desert skyline texture does not clip anymore (thanks @simnopke for the report!)

- All skylines & all seasons are now compatible with SkyFix 2.1

Skybox & clouds by @lowedeus

- The tropical skyline now has a summer and winter texture

You can download the skylines in the original post I updated. Delete the old skylines or replace the files!

anonymous asked:

theres a bunch of people on the big tumblr staff pride post saying "why did you include ace and polysexual flags but not the lesbian" do people not realize that they can ask for their flags without putting other ones down :/ also theres like 100+ people asking for the lesbian one but very little people point out nonbinary isnt up there.

The lesbian flag is only like 2 years old so it’s not unreasonable that most people don’t know about it. Even googling “lesbian flag” brings up four different versions. People need to grow up and learn how to ask for things without tearing other people down.

LAWLESS

Summary: Despite his youth, Eren Jaeger is one of the best and most popular doctors of the Kingdom. Among those interested on his services is included a recognized criminal clan, which does not hesitate to use the youngest of the Ackerman as bait. Eren never imagined that this “harmless” girl in red dress would get him into so much trouble, turning his world upside down.


N/A: since I deleted my blog back in March, the “read more” of my old posts is not working anymore, so I decided to re-upload chapters 1 and 2 together to make things easier for anyone who’s interested.

Art by Dani ♥ the full version of Lawless’ cover is here and there’s more related fanart here - I still have to reblog everything again, so the tag will collect more beautiful things done by Dani soon. You can also read the rest of the chapters on FF.net


Chapter 1. Crimson

Mikasa crashed against the wall backwards. Despite the hit, the coldness of the bricks did little against her accumulated body heat. Today’s training had been tough, since she had to battle against the stockiest and tallest man at Kenny’s service.

Said beast was face down on the floor, knocked out. From her position she could see how the blood dropped from his broken nose. They called him Will.

“Is he dead?”

The girl shook her head slightly, without even looking at the man approaching the scene. She needed to catch her breath and calm her heart rate. She wiped the sweat from her forehead with her forearm while she thought that yeah, she could have killed him. The idiot would have deserved it only for trying to be too clever.

“He should be dead, huh?” murmured the man in an expressionless tone, but Mikasa knew him well enough to perceive his simmering anger.

“The fucking pig”, Levi turned Will over easily with a foot, without any care at all, so he could check his face. Mikasa had done a good job wrecking that stupid face, the guy was going to look uglier than before. Usually when a training session ended like this, it was because the practice puppets had said something disgusting to her or tried something they shouldn’t have.

Rhysand’s Playlist

This playlist is just songs that reminded me of Rhysand and his journey through ACOMAF and some songs I think he could relate to. They’re either fun and silly stuff that he’d listen to if he’d get drunk with the bros or something or dark sad ones he’d listen to when he’d miss Feyre or before when she’d been betrothed to Tamlin. Hope you enjoy!

1. Highway to Hell by ACDC

This song is just fun and silly. Like one of my old posts, I could seriously imagine him, Cassian and Azriel all drunk and singing this together all off-pitch and drunk laughing and ahhhhh. So cute. 

2. Brother by Matt Corby (stripped back version)

I think this is a song Rhys would listen to whenever he was feeling sad. Not sad about Feyre specifically, but more sad just in general or if he just couldn’t stop thinking about Under the Mountain. I could see him just waking up in the middle of the night (in the three months before he called upon the bargain) 

3. Stone Cold by Demi Lovato

This song… This song just hits me right in the feels. It’s bloody perfect for Rhys. Seriously. Just so much emotion and the lyrics are so relatable and it’s just so perfect. Especially when he admits that he just wants Feyre to be happy… This is the song for that (of course, if the lyrics were changed genders and stuff). The live or original versions are both amazing. 

Stone cold
Baby
God knows I try to feel
Happy for you
Know that I am
Even if I can’t understand
I’ll take the pain
Give me the truth
Me and my heart
We’ll make it through
If happy is her him
I’m happy for you

“I heard you were going to marry him, and I told myself you were happy. I should let you be happy, even if it killed me. Even if you were my mate, you’d earned that happiness.”

4. A Drop in the Ocean by Ron Pope

Rhys would have this on loop, definitely. He’d even like know all the lyrics and sing it to himself with some hard liquor by himself, staring up at the stars and tears just silently streaming down his face. He’d worship and adore this song. Another feels crusher. 

Misplaced trust in old friends Tamlin
Never counting regrets
By the grace of God I do not rest at all
And New England as the leaves change
The last excuse that I’ll claim
I was a boy who loved a woman like a little girl
And still I can’t let you be
Most nights I hardly sleep
Don’t take what you don’t need from me
It’s just a drop in the ocean
A change in the weather
I was praying that you and me might end up together
It’s like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert
But I’m holding you closer than most ‘cause you are my…
Heaven doesn’t seem far away anymore

No, no
Heaven doesn’t seem far away

5. Resolution by Matt Corby

This is a good carefree song that I could see Rhys and Feyre dancing to, and Rhys secretly enjoying it so much because it reminds him of when he was kneeling before putting those thigh strap thingies on and he told her that she was his salvation and Feyre and Rhys dancing is literally the cutest most swoon worthy thing in my mind. Like seriously, I can’t even think about it without screeching.

You’ll be my resolution
Characters of no illusion
You’ll be my resolution

Turn around, put it down and see
That this is really the place to be

I’m not you, nor you me
But we’re both moving steady

6. Oceans by Seafret

This song is just so smooth and relaxing yet still powerful and relatable simultaneously. Rhys would like, I don’t know, listen and stare out the window thinking about how much he misses Feyre. I’ts just amazing and seafret is soooog good you should check out their other stuff!

I want you
Yeah I want you
And nothing comes close
To the way that I need you
I wish I can feel your skin
And I want you
From somewhere within

It feels like there’s oceans
Between me and you once again
We hide our emotions
Under the surface and tryin’ to pretend

7. Cosmic Love by Florence and the Machine

Rhys would especially love this song because of all the references to the night! It’s truly such an amazing song (especially live! I saw her in concert like two weeks ago) and he’d really just adore it and think of Feyre. I also think that Feyre would also love this song because she would relate to it so much. 

A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes
I screamed aloud, as it tore through them, and now it’s left me blind
The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I’m always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart
And in the dark, I can hear your heartbeat
I tried to find the sound
But then it stopped, and I was in the darkness,
So darkness I became

 “When you spend so long trapped in the darkness, [Lucien,] you find that the darkness begins to stare back.”

8. Can’t Help Falling in Love with You

Don’t imagine Rhys singing this under his breath while they slow dance around the room

Don’t imagine Rhys humming this while playing in Feyre’s hair or tracing little doodles along her skin

Don’t imagine Rhys whispering the lyrics to her before she falls asleep

Don’t imagine Rhys actually singing the song to her on their anniversary or her birthday

Any version of this song is literally perfect. The one for the link is by Haley Reinhart, but here are some of my favorites:

-Elvis (duh)

-Fleet Foxes (LOVE IT)

-Twenty One Pilots (so adorable)

And here are some extra songs that would fill up the rest of Rhys’s l love Feyre Paylist on his phone/iPod

-Love More by Bon Iver (sad)

-Safety Dance by Sleeping at Last (sweet and cute)

-Not Today by Imagine Dragons (adorable)

-Tell Me It’s Real by Seafret (cute/sad)

-Truce by Twenty One Pilots (for when he’s sad and just hopeless)

-Creature Fear (romantic)

-Lay Me Down by Sam Smith (don’t imagine Rhys worshipping this song)

-Slow it down by the Lumineers (sad and slow and PERFECT)

-Halo cover by Ane Brun feat. Linnea Olsson (amazing and so cute)

Naming Iceland: A Disappointed Norwegian and His Lost Livestock.

In Old Norse, the name for Iceland translates to be the same as it in English - Ísland, íss (ice) + land (land). It seems easy, then, to say that Iceland was simply named because of its geographical situation. There are glaciers, there is ice, and it is arguably pretty cold. I never thought much about it, until I was reading Gunnar Karlsson’s book The History of Iceland, where it is mentioned that a disgruntled Norwegian by the name of Flóki is to blame for Iceland’s cold-sounding name.

I was tagged forever ago by @iridescencel for the Edge of Seventeen tag thingy by @alwaysimming. This is the 17 year old version of this random sim I made whose name is now Thomas Lee. (v. inspired by @early-grape‘s post.)

Let’s ignore the fact that he’s missing his entire arm and that I couldn’t decide between 2 poses. The original gif had 6 different poses but it went over the limit and looked like pixelated crap so that didn’t happen. (-_-。)

Edit: ahahaha forgot to tag ppl woops - idk who’s done this or not so disregard if you have or don’t want to @aandidas, @momobunniisims, @jhongg, @goldenpixels, @john-sims

VLD vs. DotU Personalities

I was having a conversation with @maplecat89​ today about how Lance from the Defenders of the Universe was a tame version of Legendary Defender Keith’s hot-headed personality (he picked a fight with a guy who showed up to ask Allura to marry him).  A little while later, I was watching my 2 year old playing with her Voltron lion toys and she was asking where the Red Lion is (her Daddy lost it “in the car”).  I joked that Lance was taking it for a joy ride…and then I had a realization…

I did a post about the characteristics the VLD lions look for in their paladins a while back.  As you guys know, the original pilots were switched up in VLD to match their lion colors.  If we apply the VLD Quintessence characteristics to the original Defenders pilots…

Keith: “The Black Lion is the decisive head of Voltron.  It will take a pilot who is a born leader and in control at all times, someone whose men will follow without hesitation.”

Lance: “The Red Lion is temperamental and the most difficult to master.  It’s faster and more agile than the others, but also more unstable.  It’s pilot needs to be someone who relies more on instincts than skill alone.”

Pidge:  “The Green Lion has an inquisitive personality and needs a pilot of intellect and daring.”

Hunk:  “The Yellow Lion is caring and kind.  It’s pilot is one who puts the needs of others above his own.  His heart must be mighty.”

Allura: Even though the Blue Lion’s Quintessence was never revealed in Season 1, it’s been speculated that it revolves around trust.  This post does a good job of explaining that.

I didn’t include Sven because he only lasts 6 episodes of the original and Hunk didn’t have much of a personality outside of a fat guy obsessed with food so his is arguable, but everyone else fits.  And if anyone questions Defenders Allura being trusting, just look at the time she followed a white lion because it told her it was her reincarnated father.  Or the time she let Haggar into the castle while she was disguised as Allura’s aunt and didn’t believe the pilots, who had figured out it was Haggar.  The more I think about it, the more Defenders Allura’s personality matches VLD Lance.  Not the happy-go-lucky front Lance puts on, but he’s trusting, kind of naive, keeps bumping the Blue Lion into things…

…Lance is the new Allura.  I would so be on board if Lotor shows up and starts spouting about how beautiful Lance is XD

I’ve been thinking a lot about Health At Every Size lately, and why it’s so crucial to me, especially as someone with a chronic illness that causes my weight to fluctuate a lot. 

First of, I think I’ve come to find that my take on HAES is very different than what the anti-HAES people seem to think it is. 

My simple take on the movement: Focusing on living a healthy lifestyle without the main goal being weight loss. Meaning eating responsibly, and as healthily as possible while being accountable for what I put in my body. Being as physically active as is safe for me at the time, and pushing my limits when I’m able to. Using exercise and physical activity to help with mental health as well. A good ballet class is far more effective than any therapy session in my book. 

It is absolutely not anti weight loss. Over the past year and a half I managed to lose 50 pounds, but now that I’m having heart issues gain, I’m having issues with fluid retention. Before anyone chimes in saying my problems are from clogged arteries from a crappy diet, I’m so sorry to disappoint but my latest cardiac work up showed no blockages, no calcifications, no plaque, no coronary artery disease whatsoever. It’s all arrhythmia problems from autonomic nervous system dysfunction. (and believe me, cardiologists do not sugar coat ANYTHING, as it should be.)

In the past two months I’ve probably gained and lost 15 pounds 3-4 times. Somehow my overall weight trend is down, but daily, even weekly it’s all over the place. I *have* to weigh myself daily to keep track of it. And damn if it doesn’t drive me crazy. And while I know it’s physically impossible to gain 5 pounds of fat overnight, I’d be lying if I said it didn’t mess with me. If I could walk away from the scale forever I would, but I know it’s necessary to keep track of things. It’s enough to make me want to give up some times.

But I can’t. I know I can’t. If I gave up on trying to be as healthy as possible, it would be a death sentence. I’m completely convinced that the reason I’ve managed to tolerate my heart issues as well as I have is because I’ve done my best to be as physically active as I have. 

If the *only* measure of success I used to measure my habits was weight loss, I would have given up a long time ago. 

You cannot give up on healthy habits just because you’re not losing the weight quickly.You cannot give up because you gain a few pounds. You cannot give up because your body is not acting the way you think it should. 

This idea of treating weight loss as the ultimate reward for being healthy is one that has to change. A healthy lifestyle is its own reward, nothing more, nothing less. The benefits of attempting to be as healthy as possible still show in your body whether or not you lose weight. 

That’s not to say that you won’t lose weight or that losing weight is bad, but it should absolutely not be the penultimate measure of one’s health. 

The tldr version: My version of Health At Every Size simply means attempting to live as healthy a lifestyle of possible without using weight loss as the sole measure of health. 

It really is as simple as that.
