For the past few weeks I've been trying to teach myself to eat healthier & BE healthier in general.

So here's a few tips:

NO Regular Soda. Occasionally a Diet Soda is ok but don't make that a habit either. Soda is one of the worst things you can put into your body.

NO Fast Food Meals.

Switch to Whole Wheat Breads & Pasta.

Add Fruits & Veggies to All Meals

Base Each Meal Around Fruits or Veggies

Keep telling yourself that you can do this, you NEED to do this for YOURSELF. You only have one body to live your life in.

Drink about 30oz FIRST THING when you wake up!

Increase your Fiber intake. A high fiber diet helps get rid of junk in your pipes. Blueberries have loads of fiber. There's loads of ways to increase Fiber.

Eat a snack around 3:00 or 4:00pm. Get something that will give you a boost of protein or fiber but nothing too sweet.

When it comes to salt, use Sea Salt and only use in moderation.



Mindanao Gum Tree aka, Rainbow Eucalyptus Tree

I never knew such a tree existed until I saw a post about them on my Facebook news feed from a page called "I Fucking Love Science".

These trees thrive in tropical climates, for example in the warm & humid climate of the southern coast of Florida. As you can see clearly in the picture below, the bark of this unique tree displays vivid smears of colors including orange, red, blue, purple & green. 

Waking Up

Posted by Kelly on May 12, 2014 at 5:45 PM Comments comments (0)

I feel like I've been asleep, stuck in a dream for the past 5 years. It hasn't been a good dream... But now I've woken up. I'm FINALLY becoming myself again. I don't expect anyone to understand what I'm saying here, but just know that I'm about to do great things. I don't brag, it's something I just don't do but I have to say I am an amazing woman and it's time I show the world who I am.

I found the obstacles in my life and hurdled them. I also finally realized how badly I've been oppressed throughout my entire life... My family, every adult in my life wanted me to change to suit their standards. No one allowed me to be myself 100 %. If my mother hadn't been so lenient in some situations, I probably would have put the terrible thoughts I'd had in my teenage years into action. All along, I never knew but I know now that people kept bringing me down & forcing me to be someone I didn't want to be.

The major difference between now & then is now, I'm in full control of me. I'm finally free of the oppression because I have learned to focus solely on what I WANT & what I NEED. If someone disagrees, I don't have time to fix their problems because it is THEIR problem, not mine. I'm taking care of myself so they should take care of theirself & stop worrying about what I'm doing. Maybe it's selfish in a way but YOU are the only person you can always depend on. You have to be your own best friend, your own motivation, your own light, learn to think for yourself and guide yourself to where you're meant to be and your purpose in this life.

Ways To Stop Feeling Fat

Remember you are a f***ing genius, hysterically funny & really popular.

Get super dressed up and spend an inordinate amount of time on your hair and makeup, just to go get groceries or perform other mundane tasks.

Make a list of 10 things you want to do before you die, and indulge the most exciting one you can come up with. That may mean taking ONE action step towards achieving the goal of your choice (e.g. if you want to sing at Carnegie Hall, start practicing your scales).

Masturbate. Regularly. (Or have sex, whichever.)

Wrap your body head-to-toe in something hyper-comfortable, like warm bath water, fresh sheets or maybe an old cashmere Juicy jumpsuit. Remember those? I'm '90s reminiscing like whoa.

Just for a moment, pretend that God is a fact. Does he give a shit about your weight? I mean, come on. What other gifts has the Universe bestowed upon you, lucky girl?

Google fat activism. It's a thing.

Imagine someone in your life that loves you totally unconditionally. Is it a parent? A sibling? That nerdy boy who had a HUGE crush on you in 7th grade? Close your eyes and imagine looking at yourself through their eyes.
