This is easily my favourite post ever.
*this guy* used to asks me out all the time after shows. It was SO obvious to me had I been on the street, in normal clothes he wouldn’t give two shits about me. If we’d been at a bar, and I’d been really funny and joking, he would have asked my hotter friend out instead. But this type of dude would see me play and then dream I was his Sarah Silverman or some shit.
Hiking at Sweetwater Creek. 6 miles. Not bad.

Kind of in a creepy way.
Lena Dunham, in an interview with The Guardian (via florida-sounds)
My cuter doppleganger has a real fucking point. Jason points this out to me all the time: how timid I am compared to the penis carriers.
Tell me bout it
UGGGHHHH YES. I weighed 165 pounds in January of 2011. I weigh 230 pounds now. Same as when I started in 2010. I feel so stupid. I worked so hard for what? To fuck it up.
Back on track.
There is a lot of confusion around the purpose of a cheat meal. Many people believe that if they are on a healthy eating plan they must eat cleanly 100% of the time. However studies have shown that cheat meals can be beneficial both mentally and physically.
Mentally: Having a cheat meal can actually help you stayed motivated and on track. It allows you to have the food you love and stop feeling deprived.
“When you plan a cheat day on your diet once a week, you can look forward to rewarding yourself for your hard work. Every time you feel the temptation throughout the week to stray off of your diet, you’ll be able to remind yourself that you will have that treat on your cheat day and you’ll find the temptation less strong than if you’d told yourself you can never touch that unhealthy food again.”
Physically: Did you know that having a cheat can actually make you lose weight faster? This is because having a higher calorie days boosts your metabolism! It keeps you body on the edge because it does not get use to having only a low amount of calories.
"Having a cheat day boosts your metabolism in many ways. One way it boosts your metabolism is by increasing leptin levels. Leptin is a hormone that influences hunger and body fat levels. When you diet and cut your calories, your leptin levels also drop. This causes those extreme hunger signals, and as a result, your body will hold onto body fat thinking that it’s going to need it to survive in the future. Leptin levels are directly correlated with your total caloric intake. Low calories lower leptin levels. By having a cheat day, you give your body a chance to “reset” your hormone levels – leptin included."
So there you go! Do not feel bad about indulging in your favorite meals! and like always everything in moderation :)
(Special note: I do not encourage cheating on your significant other, school work, taxes or anything else.. just dont do it)
So I’m addicted to food (specific foods) and for me, this total BS. For me, a cheat in food is like a cheat on smoking. It’s not a “cheat meal” it’s backsliding.
