“Selfish isn't a dirty word. It means we take care of ourselves and are able to give back.” ― Jillian Michaels
“Once you see how strong you are physically, it transcends into all other facets of your life.” ― Jillian Michaels
“It's not about perfect. It's about effort. And when you bring that effort every single day, that's where transformation happens. That's how change occurs.” ― Jillian Michaels
“Visualize what you want out of life and think big. Don’t feel undeserving. We’re all deserving of living our dreams—some of us realize it and some don’t. You’re not doing anyone any favours by living small. Embrace these truths and step up. The world is waiting.” ― Jillian Michaels
I have a sense that God is unfair and preferentially punishes his weak, his dumb, his fat, his lazy. I believe he takes more pleasure in his perfect creatures, and cheers them on like a brainless dad as they run roughshod over the rest of us. He gives us a need for love, and no way to get any. He gives us a desire to be liked, and personal attributes that make us utterly unlikable. Having placed his flawed and needy children in a world of exacting specifications, he deducts the difference between what we have and what we need from our hearts and our self-esteem and our mental health. — George Saunders (CivilWarLand in Bad Decline)
The world is being run by people my age, men my age, with falling-out hair and health worries, and it frightens me. When the leaders were older than me I could believe in their wisdom, I could believe they had transcended rage and malice and the need to be loved. Now I know better. I look at the faces in newspapers, in magazines, and wonder: what greeds, what furies drive them on? — Margaret Atwood (Cat's Eye)
It's never been true, not anywhere at any time, that the value of a soul, of a human spirit, is dependent on a number on a scale. We are unrepeatable beings of light and space and water who need these physical vehicles to get around. When we start defining ourselves by that which can be measured or weighed, something deep within us rebels. We don't want to EAT hot fudge sundaes as much as we want our lives to BE hot fudge sundaes. We want to come home to ourselves. (p. 174-5) — Geneen Roth (Women, Food and God: An Unexpected Path to Almost Everything)
But pain's like water. It finds a way to push through any seal. There's no way to stop it. Sometimes you have to let yourself sink inside of it before you can learn how to swim to the surface. — Katie Kacvinsky
I once read in my physics book that the universe begs to be observed, that energy travels and transfers when people pay attention. Maybe that's what love really boils down to--having someone who cares enough to pay attention so that you're encouraged to travel and transfer, to make your potential energy spark into kinetic energy. — Jasmine Warga (My Heart and Other Black Holes)
Have Some Honey: Research suggests that honey may be more effective than over-the-counter cough syrup at quelling nighttime coughing. Use a medicinal-grade variety such as manuka honey and take up to 2 teaspoonfuls at bedtime.
Listen to good music while working out: When you work out, it is always better if you are full of energy. Aside from making sure that you have eaten a healthy meal hours before working out, you can also turn up the volume for your MP3 player, in order to become more effective in it. Good music can take your mind away from the feeling of fatigue. Thus, it can help you last longer.
Cut down your consumption of soda: If you need to gain weight, sodas are your friends. However, since you want the opposite of that, then you have to avoid them. Sodas actually contain no essential nutrients, except for hundreds of calories that can make you gain weight in no time. Therefore, it is best to choose water whenever you are thirsty.
Watch models on TV: There are certain TV channels that feature models sporting the newest fashion trends. Since these models look fit, you would become more motivated in using a diet, so that you can attain a figure just like them. Do it on a regular basis, so that you would not lose your focus in achieving your dreams.
Eat at your dining table: When you eat elsewhere around your house, there may be a tendency that you could eat more than you should. This is because playing on your computer, or watching the television may distract your brain from accepting the signal from your stomach that it is already full. Therefore, if you want to lose weight, you should eat at your dining table.
Eating pineapples: Eating pineapples is actually one of the best ways of losing weight. This is because, apart from having good amounts of fiber, it can also boost your metabolism when you eat it during snack times. Aside from that, it also has bromolina, which can help your body in breaking down proteins.
Don’t go with diet programs that are too restrictive: When it comes to choosing your diet programs, it is best not to go with those that are too restrictive. This is because, such kinds of programs can prevent your body from absorbing nutrients that it needs. When that happens, your body could go on a survival mode, in which it would try to save all its stored fats and calories, and slow down your metabolic rate.
