Hi, I'm currently around 85kg and just over 5"7 do you have any tips on losing weight? I want to try and lose around around 3 or 4 stone before I go to uni in September anything will help thank you !

Hey lovely! Well i shall give you a run down on it all!

You need a healthy diet! Which consists of:

  • Fruit and vegetables! All are fantastic :)
  • Wholegrains: Brown pasta Brown rice Brown bread Quinoa Wholemeal wraps Brown rice cakes Corn thins
  • Healthy fats: Avocado Eggs Nut butters Nuts Seeds Healthy oils
  • Lean proteins: Turkey breast, Chicken Breast, Tuna, Salmon, lean cuts of beef, pork, ham, bacon,

Also add in to your diet things like Cottage, cream, ricotta cheese, almond milk, greek yoghurt, oatmeal, muesli, trail mix, hommus, crackers, falafels, etc!

There are plenty more healthy foods too! They are just some of them! Check out my recipes tabs for some more food ideas and creations!

As for the workout part, there are plenty of types of workouts!!

  • Running, Jogging, Walking, Cycling, Cross Training, Rowing, Dancing, Aerobics, Gym classes, Boxing, Swimming, Sports, skipping, circuit training, HIIT, sprints, stair runs, mixture of exercises, etc.

Anything that gets your heart rate up! They were just cardio workouts but you can do strength training too! To build and tone your muscles, check out the workout tab on my blog for some ideas for that too!

And if you need some motivation, here’s a paragraph I send to people! ‘The best motivation will come from you. I can tell you all these things to motivate you, but in the end, you have got to want it. So, how badly do you want this? Imagine what it’s going to feel like, watching the scale go down, the measurements go down, the look of your body toning up and losing fat, imagine how healthy you will feel, how happy you will feel, imagine the compliments you are going to recieve, ‘have you lost weight?’ ‘wow, tell me your secret!’ ‘how’d you do it!’ You need to find motivation within yourself mostly, you can use photos, quotes, and things for motivation but the true motivation will have to be when you finally decide that you want to do it. Write down your goals, set up a motivation wall/board, remind yourself every morning about your goals, how you deserve to treat your body better, think about how happy you are going to be once you get to those goals, find healthy foods you love to eat and workouts you love to do. You can do this. I believe in you, do you believe in yourself?’

Also, If you are looking to count calories, i’d recommend reading this post: it will explain everything about it!

Counting calories isn’t for everybody, so if you don’t want to, then just focus on eating clean and working out and results will come! Have a read through the tabs in my blog and the questions i’ve previously been asked and have answered and they could help you aswell! I wish you all the very best on your journey and i know you can do it! x

if you get separated from your party in a walmart or target or anywhere really, you can and SHOULD play marco polo to find each other.

What my daily intake looks like:

A lot of you have been asking about what my current diet looks like and I’ve been somewhat hesitant to share it because what works for me won’t necessarily work for you and I don’t want you to think this is what you have to do. My program is designed specifically for me based on my stats and goals and evolves with progress. Make sure you are doing what YOU need to do for your diet and fueling your body with plenty of nutritious foods.

I eat 5 meals a day. ≤35p/20c/7f/meal + 30c on lifting days. Roughly 1900 cals.

1. Breakfast consists of beta al, egg whites, rolled oats, cinnamon raisin ezekiel bread, blueberries or strawberries, and whole almonds, almond or peanut butter.

2. Second meal is usually chicken breast or fish, sweet or white potato, rice, asparagus or other green veggies, and avocado.

3. Third meal is usually the same as the second but I have what I didn’t have before just to mix it up.

4. Pre workout meal is whey protein, oats, almond butter, beta al, and cit mal.

4.5 Intraworkout- 25g carbs, 17g eaa’s, beta al, and cit mal.

5. Post workout meal is 5.5 oz of lean steak, 1 1/2 cups white rice, 2 cups of broccoli, and 1/2 oz of almonds.

On non lifting days/ cardio days, I replace meals 4-5 with meals similar to 1-3 except for meal 5 which won’t include carbs. So there you have it! A little insight into what is currently fueling jenifersbody.  ღ

Researchers claim dietary advice around fat consumption, followed by millions for the past 30 years, should never have been issued

YES! Don’t be afraid of dietary fat. Dietary fat increases satiety and stops you from craving sugar and carbs. If you have a binge problem, eat fatty cuts of meat and fish, eat dark meat with the skin on, spread real butter on your toast and drink whole full fat milk. 

When I eat bread for breakfast, I am hungry in 2 hours. I even apply full fat butter on my toast but the ratio is still 90% bread (carb), 10% butter (fat).  This is very annoying as I then reach for a snack because lunch isn’t for another 2-3 hours.

But when I eat full fat greek yogurt with a banana, I am full for 4-5 hours. Because it is 80% yogurt (fat) and 20% banana (carb). Even as lunch time rolls around, I don’t experience hunger pangs. 

I typically don’t like meals that are all rice. Like fried rice. I mean, I love them as food, but I don’t like eating them because I get really peckish and I am hungry just 2 hours later. I prefer to eat rice and bread as an accompaniment, and not as the main meal. 

One night, I had fried rice for dinner. Right after dinner, I wanted something sweet. The next morning, I woke up ravenous. All I wanted was a stack of pancakes. I was in such a bad mood because I was so hungry! Of course I didn’t have pancakes…but god the temptation was there. Another night, I had a lovely ribeye with mixed greens. There were no sweet cravings after and I didn’t wake up hungry the next morning.

Remember, I am not saying NO CARB forever. I am saying LOW CARB. And learn to balance your meals. If you happen to go carb heavy on one meal, then make your next 2 or 3 meals low or no carb. That way your life has variety and you are not depriving yourself of anything. 

And remember, portion control is paramount. 

Paleo Pancakes!

I’ve seen a ton of paleo pancake recipes around the web, but they all left me quite unsatisfied with the results (especially the ones that just claimed eggs and bananas made up the miracle 2 ingredient recipe). So after a little experimenting, here’s the Caveman’s take. 

Makes 3 nice sized pancakes (enough to share if you’re a light eater, or for one if you’re a fat bastard like me):

  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons of coconut flour
  • 4 tablespoons of almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon of psyllium seed powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • optional: a little cinnamon and nutmeg if you like those flavors, but I left them out
  • additional coconut oil for cooking the pancakes (and a dollop to top it off with instead of non-paleo butter)

Just like my latest bread recipe, I think the psyllium seed powder is the key to binding, like a paleo friendly gluten. And of course, the baking soda helps make them fluffy. I’ve come around on a lot of non-paleo things in the last few years as relatively harmless, and baking soda is one of those items. I’m coming around on yeast-based fermented food as well (in small amounts, like cap fulls of vinegar for instance).

If you want your pancakes sweeter, then add some raw organic honey to your recipes. Speaking of which, for my syrup, I heated up some honey in the same pancake pan (with the residue coconut oil in it), added a little water to thin it out, and added a tiny bit of lemon juice to cut the sweetness. Stir thoroughly to avoid burning. Don’t let it cook too long or you’ll increase the sugar, defeating your own healthy purpose. It’s bad enough we’re eating sugar, but we’re turning it into a mini-cheat by using local raw organic honey. Still, always remember, sugar is sugar once it enters the body, so this isn’t an every day meal, more of a special treat, like cooking paleo breakfast on Valentine’s Day for your special cave boy or cave girl (I’m still single, so I treated myself to breakfast for dinner this V-Day, otherwise known in my home as VD, which causes the same burning sensation as being single on Valentine’s Day).

If you’re a lazy bastard, use organic maple syrup, it’s got about the same glycemic load as raw honey (I just don’t keep any in my home), and it’s just as bad for you. Oh, btw, the sausage was bratwurst made from grass-fed beef.

Five Things I Love (No People)

Tagged by my alternate universe soulmate runningwithguts.

1) Our cats. It makes me indescribably happy to come home after a long work day and snuggle with those purr monsters.

2) Good teaching days. The days I can convince my students to geek out with me and the room just buzzes with enthusiasm? Aces.

3) Blanket sarcophagus entombment and Netflix mainlining. No explanation needed. Final two episodes of The Fall, I am coming for you.

4) Freshly-baked bread. Tearing through a crisp crust, steam rising, revealing the chewy crumb just begging for a slather of butter? Gahhhhhhh.

5) That I’ve brought my piano playing back up to snuff and now have 100% confidence in my abilities. I feared I wouldn’t get back to this place. I’m so stupidly happy (and relieved) that I have.

And five people I love should play: becky-balances, thatsminethankyou, breatherunlive, runningfortheriesling, straightarrowlife

Hello lovely! I'm starting uni next week and i'm just wondering if you have any ideas of easy vegan snacks/lunches to take that are cheap and don't require too much effort? Hope you've had a beautiful weekend x

hi! how exciting :) of course. here are a few of my staples: whole wheat bread/bagels with peanut butter & banana, avocado on toast with nutritional yeast & salt, pita chips with hummus, fruit as a snack (grapefruits, bananas, oranges, grapes), pre-made vegan soup (i like amy’s), oatmeal with yummy toppings, tempeh or tofu stir-fry with kale & other veggies & spices & hot sauce…yeah those are pretty much my go-to easy meals and snacks!!

gunkystuff asked:

if you look up " Pilot N' Endo shenanigans ", I used some of your audio. Is that ok?

Yes, I saw the video you made.

While it is very cool, I wish:

1. You would have asked my permission before doing so.

2. You would credit me for my audio accordingly.

I’m not mad or anything, but my voice is kinda my bread and butter, and I’m already pretty gun-shy after others have posted my audio work without my permission.

If i met you i would tie you up, and smear peanut butter all over your body. i would then proceed to put bread all over you, and feed you grape jelly. Oh yeah John. You would love that. Be my Pb&J.

Well shit

Everything and Nothing

im tossing and turning
heartburn keeping me up
spasms in my legs-
I drag my aching body out of bed
in hope a 2am stroll around the room would ease the discomfort.
my belly feels a burden
pushed out- an extra weight.
I go back to bed,
exhausted,
I manage to find a comfortable position
my eyelids drop.
I’m woken several hours later
everyones in a panic
“you’re late for morning prayer”, they say.
I’m confused… I dream of toast
I find the strength to rise from bed
and in my journey to the bathroom- I realise toast is not why I’m up.
“you’re late for;morning prayer”, I repeat to myself.
I begin to rush for abolution-
food, still on my mind.
warm buttered toast.
I perform my prayer
with most possible concentration
and now I’m done.
I pray there’s bread
half heartedly I open the fridge
in fear of disappointment
I see a fresh loaf
my eyes; open wide
a smile creeps between my lips
I toast the bread
wait patiently for it to brown
it pops out
I slab on a load of butter
and finally… I take the long awaited bite
I’m satisfied.
I plonk back into bed
and I’m reminded by a friendly jab
right inside my belly
that I wasn’t the only one satisfied.
still tired but a smile imprinted on my face; I doze off.

marilynmay replied to your post:

that’s why I feel none of the fandom’s “monster ships” shouldn be canon. I always feel so bad for those who don’t ship it, because I imagine myself in this situation :/ It clearly can ruin the story for someone

“I believe that once you start writing because you’re trying to elicit a specific reaction from a segment of fandom, or afraid of a reaction, rather than what you feel makes for the best story, you’re doomed! So I do my best not to do that. […] I think it’s really about the characters and what you find interesting to do with them. […] The only time I think it’s a problem is when you’ve really done everything you can with a relationship and you’re kind of forcing the story to continue because it’s your bread and butter. […] I don’t think that’s the case with Spike and Buffy. I think there’s still a lot of very cool and interesting stuff to explore between them as people.” — Christos Gage (x)

So I trust Buffy and Spike won’t be a couple for a longer time they should.There were some couples in Buffy that lasted more than a season (Buffy/Riley, Xander/Dawn, Xander/Anya, Willow/Oz, Willow/Tara), and what’s common about them is that they lasted as long as they were treated as background: the moment their relationships were focused again, it meant their break up. And it’s hard to think that such expressive couple as Buffy and Spike would be in the background; I mean, they were together for less than an issue and it’s already an enormous thing.

They were explored and developed apart for a long time (seasons 7, 9 and 10), as friends with an unfinished past in its various degrees. As a couple, from a storyline point of view, all I think is in long-term they’d be explored just as a vampire and a slayer together. How much do you think this subject could be explored (again)? Do you actually see a storyline advancing while they are simply holding hands, without any conflict? Even in fanfiction it isn’t interesting, it doesn’t work well. This could be just a closure arc, for all we know.

I absolute see no problem with couples being (well) explored, they could put Buffy with one of those giant cockroaches from Spike’s ship as long as it has a consistent and interesting motive to do it. Probably I’m too neutral about this subject, but I think this position of being against a couple by itself, without considering its relevance to the characters and plot, isn’t completely ok. I mean, everybody has their right and reasons to dislike couples, characters and plots, but no one knows what will happen, or if anything will really happen, or how it’ll be explored. It’s what I meant with the season 6 example.

I hope I’m not sounding as what I’m saying is that everyone should enjoy fiction the same way I do, but I think this is relevant to be considered before being against something to happen in canon. I don’t see it as simplistic and tiring fanservice, it’s a story in all its complexities. Let’s at least wait for what will happen.

I needed to tell someone. I needed to tell the world.

Holy shit. Holy shit.

I just watched Friday the 13th (2009), the one with Jared Padalecki. You know, in celebration of the “Friday the 13th then Valentine’s Day” thing. Today, watch F13, watch My Bloody Valentine tomorrow, get more J2. So I was like, Hey! I get to watch me some Jared in one layer! That’s like Christmas!

HOW WRONG I WAS.

Holy shit. Friday the 13th is quite literally the worst movie I have ever seen.

Now I’ve seen bad horror movies. Me and my mom live off the Syfy channel. We have seen SHIT.

Our bread and butter.

But nothing

Nothing compares to this.

Here, I am going to tell you LITERALLY what happens. Keep in mind, I am watching this movie at 2x speed because I figure it’s going to be kind of derivative drivel.

I was so innocent back then.

First couple minutes: Setup. Tells Jason’s backstory, that his mother killed a bunch of camp counselors, then was killed by the last one of them. So that’s why Jason’s killing people, I guess. This isn’t Shakespeare, I can deal with that.

Now, do you know what an Opening Kill is? When you watch a horror movie, usually in the very beginning there’s one or more people (who are usually unlikeable) whose job is to get killed. It’s usually “Idiot kids partying in the woods.” 

There’s one at pretty much the beginning of every SPN episode. Its job is to set up the killer.

You know, the scene that occurs right before the title card.

It’s usually, at maximum, five minutes long.

But Friday the 13th. Its opening kill is TWENTY. MINUTES. LONG. And it’s of the most unlikeable bunch of people I’ve ever seen (none of which were Jared so I knew they were all dead meat). And yes, they are “idiot kids partying in the woods.” Except one survives, maybe, I think? I don’t know, I didn’t care. I wanted my Jared.

Then come the OPENING FUCKING TITLES. AT 23 MINUTES IN. I SHIT YOU NOT.

So I’m like FINALLY. GET TO SOME JARED ALREADY.

No. 

No Jared. 

More unlikeable people. AND GUESS WHAT? They’re a bunch of idiot kids getting ready to party in the woods! BECAUSE IT’S NOT LIKE WE SPENT THE LAST 20 MINUTES WITH IDIOT KIDS PARTYING IN THE WOODS OR ANYTHING HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

THEN. 

FINALLY. 

HEAVENLY CHOIR HALLELUJAH PRAISE CHUCK WE GET SOME JARED. AND THANK THE LORD, HE’S THE ONE LIKABLE PERSON IN THIS WHOLE. DAMN. MOVIE. And I can’t lie, throughout what movie I could get through he was smoking hot. Praise heaven.

i’d like to thank chuck for his excellent work. amen. (Found here)

Ahhh….Jared. He’s looking for his sister.

………And he’s onscreen for like a minute. Or less.

Because we have more important things to focus on.

From now on, two colons ( :: ) signifies a cut. Because hold on to your butts.

::

YAY WE’RE IDIOTS PARTYING IN A CABIN IN THE WOODS!

YAY WE’RE IDIOTS PARTYING IN THE WOODS!

::

<Jared and Tampon walk around the abandoned cabin. Tampon trips>

::

YAY WE’RE IDIOTS PARTYING IN THE WOODS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

…….

We’re an hour into the movie now.

Nothing has happened.

There is no plot.

No story has occurred.

I hate everyone except for Jared’s character, whom I have named My One Shining Light. The only likable person in this whole movie.

I am trying to skip scenes that don’t have him in it so that I may endure, but his scenes are so short I am accidentally skipping them. I am missing My One Shining Light because the Idiots are taking up so much of the movie.

If this movie was just the actual plot, you know, the one with Jared, it would be maybe 15 minutes long.

The rest is idiots partying in the woods.

Always idiots partying in the woods, wanting sex, drinking beer, doing drugs.

Idiots partying. Partying. Partying.

I am forgetting the sound of music, the taste of food.

My One Shining Light cannot save me.

Even in a tight t-shirt he cannot save me. 

There is no god.

I shut down the movie. I can go no further.

…What is my life? What has it become?

I recall My One Shining Light. He is good to me, and easy on my eyes and heart. 

Precious light. The only light left in the world.

All else is darkness.

There is no more hope.

Save yourselves.
