There is this odd trend
of taken women
saying they are too much,
and how the men they love
are amazing for dealing with them.

Love should not be a responsibility.
You should not have to deal with me.
Just because a woman is wild
and free
does not mean she is difficult.
He is not a martyr for loving me
through the good
and not so good.

Some mornings I will wake up swinging,
you do not get a gold star
for still loving me.

Some mornings I will wake up like a lamb,
you do not get a gold star
for loving me.

I am not a hurricane of a girl,
you always have the chance to leave.

This is so beautiful.

Dear Rapid Fitness.

Please tell me, in great depth, all about your keto diet plan.

Because as far as I can see, you’re still encouraging people to eat starchy veg like sweet potato/kumara. This is not keto.

You are apparently unable to tell customers how many grams of carbs they should be aiming to eat every day. Do you understand the basic 70/25/5 principle which underpins a successful ketogenic diet?

Why do you not give your clients the tools to eat a keto diet long-term? Why do you encourage them to re-introduce carbs?

Oh, I know. Because you are playing the same games as all other diet and weightloss companies have been playing for decades. 

You show people how to lose weight on a strict diet plan you give them; but you deny them the tools to make a genuine, sustainable, long-term lifestyle change.

The outcome of this is that most of your clients will end up re-gaining weight, and turning back to Rapid Fitness to lose it again. You are no better than any other diet industry fad.

People can learn more about a sustainable ketogenic lifestyle from REDDIT than they can from you con artists. I’m disgusted, and can’t wait for your shitty bubble to burst.

Some things have happened.

Namely, I now live in Christchurch. I’m currently sitting in the lounge, eating salad made from leftover spare ribs (what? I didn’t think such a thing existed either, but I made them too spicy for my mum. Oops), guacamole, CHEESE, and sour cream. Nom.

Further proof that keto is the best decision I’ve ever made (I mean, aside from this delishy salad I just described) is the fact that I bought size EXTRA EXTRA SMALL jeans yesterday. I’m scared that now I have them home they magically won’t fit anymore, ha. Regardless, it was a good feeling. I’m nowhere near as strict with my macros anymore as I was when I started, but obviously easing up hasn’t had a negative effect. Stoked.

I’m spending lots of quality time with my cats.

I bought this amazing blazer/cape hybrid thing and can’t wait to have somewhere to wear it!

Boys are blowing up my Tinder. Ha.

I’m currently listening to my favourite mix (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pa63v3wtTZE  if anyone cares) and reading Anthony Bourdain. I’ve been asked for references for a job I interviewed for last week, which is a good sign. I’m currently researching Portugese chicken recipes for tonight’s dinner. Then I’m going to do some yoga.

Life is good.

Q

katnaps asked:

How not to stagnate and stay inspired: 101. Please.

A

steaktalk:

"Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death."


Im not one to find sentiment in blanket statements and I never chalked myself up to be one who had inspirational magnents on my fridge.. but I saw this quote a few years ago and I think about it, honestly, once a week. It keeps me going emotionally and reminds my brain to keep going any other time.

What’s your opinion on vegans/vegetarians?


Veganism is an elitist lifestyle choice available to a tiny percentage of spoiled, sanctimonious citizens living in the world’s wealthiest nations.

I can’t speak for the Dutch, but in my little corner of Hollywood, whenever I encounter a vegan it’s…
