Sleepy puppy!! Oh my goodness.
Cheaper alternative to organic?
Planning a trip by myself is both scary and exhilarating. Especially if you don’t know anyone there.
Yes, I’m kinda flexing in this photo haha. But I just wanted to show the definition in my arms - from not actually workout out my arms. Not directly at least.(I’m also not saying I have perfect arms, they’re a little more muscular than I prefer but they’re what I gotta work with)
Complex training is movement that uses many muscles in your body. For example, a squat doesn’t only work your thighs and bum but also your core, stability, and coordination.
Deadlifts - mainly legs but also your core, back, and arms
Bent over rows - mainly back but also your shoulders and biceps
Jump squats - mainly legs/bum but also your core, power, stability, and cardio
These are all examples of exercises that use multiple muscles in your body. They’re also another way to burn more fat and keeping your heart rate up (my excuse to not do any cardio >.<)
They’re a great way to incorporate a little more cardio, balance, core, coordination and stability into your routine. Mind you, they can’t be a replacement for isolation workouts because they don’t give you as much strength. My legs won’t be as strong doing squats all the time as apposed to isolating them with leg presses. And I’m sure my arms look strong, but they’re probably not as strong as someone who actually performs isolated exercises like bicep curls and tricep dips.
I am currently doing an isolated muscle program to increase my strength (softie). So it’s always good to have a mix of exercises for your well rounded fitness :) Not to mention a lot of my arm and shoulder strength comes from yoga too ;)

You did not discover love.
So I would appreciate it if you stopped alerting the presses at the slightest hint of butterflies.
Because more than likely, it’s just your insecurity teaming up with your loneliness to play tricks on you. Again.
Gushing about a love you made up in your head, and painting us a picture of a happy home that doesn’t belong to you.
You did not discover love.
So stop flooding my feed with your broken heart,
because I’m drowning in your crocodile tears.
I’m tired of you preaching to anyone and everyone,
but blasting your headphones when it’s time to listen.
Building walls that take pebbles to ruin,
then finding sanctuary in the arms of men you know don’t care.
Love wants you to stop making it look bad.
Dragging its name through the mud, and tainting its existence.
Talking about how to keep a man when your man doesn’t even know he’s your man.
You are not the girl that discovered love.
You are the girl who cried asshole.
And you are ruining it for the rest of us.
I love this post because I am so tired of seeing “All boys are jerks.” Or “men are this” or even “Women are that.”
We are not meant to be generalized. We are all unique. And if you blame an entire sex because you keep dealing with the wrong boys, then it’s time to examine the common denominator - you. I know there are some jerks we cannot avoid but you train people how to treat you. You accept the love you think you deserve. You set precedents for yourself. And if you believe you deserve more, then that is what you will get.
There are gems out there. Trust me, I’ve found one.
2 year anniversary prep :)
I’ve only worked out once this week. Need motivation or a workout buddy please?
A lot of the times I feel like I’m a stuck up know-it-all who thinks that certain aspects of our lives should be a certain way. If it’s not, then it’s wrong.
If I’m not the best at my job: I’m not good at it.
If I can’t get a good workout in: I’m weak.
If you get in fights with your S/O, you’re not made for each other.
If my boyfriend comments about something he doesn’t like: he’s not good for me.
This is how I think. All of these make no sense and yet I think if something isn’t perfect, then it isn’t right.
I’ve grown up privileged and a lot of my successes have practically been handed to me on a silver platter. I’ve never learned to truly work for something from the very beginning. I’ve never understood that nothing begins perfect - but gets better if you let it.
This very thinking has blinded me from the amazing person DC is.
Everyone has flaws and I would take these little things about him and overlook everything he’s done for me. Things that no one has ever done for me or probably ever will.
No one is perfect. Especially me. Why would I ask that of someone else?
