Oh goodness no! Contrary to popular belief, muscle doesn’t turn into fat and fat doesn’t turn into muscle. The saying “all this fat is just potential muscle” is a huuge myth. They are completely different cells in your body.
You don’t even need to take whey protein shakes to gain muscle.
The average person eats more than 3x the amount of protein you need anyway and your kidneys can’t process it all if it’s waaaay too much in excess. Protein powders are not a necessity, they’re a preference and the option of whey is another preference amongst the different protein powders. You can also get your protein from foods to help gain muscle as well as work out specifically for hypertrophy (muscle gain). See FAQ for that.
All in all, whey protein isn’t necessary, but you can take it if you like. It’s neither good nor bad. However if you stop taking it, your muscle wont turn into fat. That’s just physically impossible.
The last one is a big one for me..
- Always say yes to seeing friends
- Eat breakfast every day
- Recognize that positive change rarely happens overnight
- Accept the fuck-ups, but try not to let them happen again
- There is a song to remedy every situation on the planet
- Appreciate the people in your life
- Look for the good in everything
- Try new things and try them often
- Treat yourself as well as you treat others
Ahhhh definitely eat more than 150-300 cal for breakfast but these still look damned delicious!! :D
THE GOLDEN RULE OF TUMBLR
my god, we’re all Ross.
So in conclusion, we are all the men of Friends, combined.
Not just the men.
Phoebe is basically a walking night blogger when she’s got a guitar. Admit it.
In conclusion, we are the show Friends.
we all need this on our blogs
And I love you! :) thank you
if I offered you $20, would you take it?
How about if I crumpled it up?
Stepped on it?
you would probably take it even though it was crumpled and stepped on it. Do you know why?
Because it is still $20, and its worth has not changed.
The same goes for you; if you have a bad day, or if something bad happens to you, you are not worthless.
if someone crumples you up or steps on you, your worth does not change. You are still just as valuable as you were before.
Sooooo everything? haha There are so so so many different exercises you can do that to tell you all of them would take a paper. If you chose one section, I could spend some time naming some exercises and it would still be a long paragraph. HERE is a website that has a lot of good exercises and on the left hand side you can click where on your body you want to target and what equipment you are using.
Also, if you have a smart phone, there is an app called iMuscle2. I like this because its more visual and you can choose specific muscles. That link will have a bunch of different exercises for abdominals, but this app breaks it down into specific muscles For example - External Obliques:sides, Internal obliques:sides but slightly different, Rectus Abdominus:”technically” your 8pack, and your Transverse Abdominus:lower abs. Same goes for your arms and legs “middle” or “lower” back vs all the different muscles back there, there are a lot of muscles you can choose from and a lot of different exercises to target it.
See how long this is getting and I haven’t even named a single exercise yet? oy vey!
So check out that link and the app. You will find exercise upon exercise to target your abs, gain arm strength and make your legs look more defined.
I allow myself a day to wallow - then you need to get your ass into gear again and change it
aw shit get it wednesday
HA! I almost forgot to reblog this today
Every Wednesday from now on.
Its wednesday yo
Recently, your mother and I were searching for an answer on Google. Halfway through entering the question, Google returned a list of the most popular searches in the world. Perched at the top of the list was “How to keep him interested.”
It startled me. I scanned several of the countless articles about how to be sexy and sexual, when to bring him a beer versus a sandwich, and the ways to make him feel smart and superior.
And I got angry.
Little One, it is not, has never been, and never will be your job to “keep him interested.”
Little One, your only task is to know deeply in your soul—in that unshakeable place that isn’t rattled by rejection and loss and ego—that you are worthy of interest. (If you can remember that everyone else is worthy of interest also, the battle of your life will be mostly won. But that is a letter for another day.)
If you can trust your worth in this way, you will be attractive in the most important sense of the word: you will attract a boy who is both capable of interest and who wants to spend his one life investing all of his interest in you.
Little One, I want to tell you about the boy who doesn’t need to be keptinterested, because he knows you are interesting:
I don’t care if he puts his elbows on the dinner table—as long as he puts his eyes on the way your nose scrunches when you smile. And then can’t stop looking.
I don’t care if he can’t play a bit of golf with me—as long as he can play with the children you give him and revel in all the glorious and frustrating ways they are just like you.
I don’t care if he doesn’t follow his wallet—as long as he follows his heart and it always leads him back to you.
I don’t care if he is strong—as long as he gives you the space to exercise the strength that is in your heart.
I couldn’t care less how he votes—as long as he wakes up every morning and daily elects you to a place of honor in your home and a place of reverence in his heart.
I don’t care about the color of his skin—as long as he paints the canvas of your lives with brushstrokes of patience, and sacrifice, and vulnerability, and tenderness.
I don’t care if he was raised in this religion or that religion or no religion—as long as he was raised to value the sacred and to know every moment of life, and every moment of life with you, is deeply sacred.
In the end, Little One, if you stumble across a man like that and he and I have nothing else in common, we will have the most important thing in common:
Because in the end, Little One, the only thing you should have to do to “keep him interested” is to be you.
Your eternally interested guy,
Happy International Women’s Day
