This fitblr is my secondary blog
Wanted to share my latest before and after! This is 3.5 years difference so don’t think that change comes quick or easy. I would mess up, quit, and restart all the time!! It takes time and you constantly have to remind yourself that it’s worth it. But about a year ago I fell off the fitness wagon, lost sight of my goals because I started battle something even harder to defeat. Depression. I slowly but surely spiraled out of control and found myself in a mental hospital for 2 weeks after a failed suicide attempt. In the midst of my depression and my stay in the hospital I gained about 30lbs. My therapist suggested I start back on my fitness journey and join a gym. Working out, eating healthy, and the camaraderie of the gym helped me recover from my depression along side taking medicine and seeing a therapist twice a month. I’m slowly learning to love myself and all my imperfections. Sometimes the journey is more than just weight. When the mind is healthy the body follows :)

We need carbs to survive, people! It’s just a matter of picking the right ones. Don’t fear the carb.

THANK YOU

Can someone confirm that simple carbs do not turn to fat?? I feel like that is certainly not true. Someone get at me with some science
@taoistimmortal
I feel like you are the most knowledgable person I follow regarding this kind of stuff???

carbs are extremely unlikely to be converted to fat in any circumstances. if you want the science, look up de novo lipogenesis. you really need to be in a beyond chronically excessive calorific intake for carbs to be stored as fat. 

In any case if you have a calorie appropriate diet storage of energy as adipose tissue is impossible from any source.

i refuse to distinguish between “good” and “bad” sources of energy. It’s all energy and I need rather a lot of it.

can i have the pretzel tho? lol

you can and you should.

This recipe makes only two cookies.

Albeit, two big, beautiful cookies. When I found this recipe, I liked the convenience factor of only five minutes prep time, and I loved the notion that I wouldn’t end up with a whole batch of cookies tempting me at every turn. However, I was skeptical. Would they be as good as my favorite Tollhouse? As it turned out, this is an awesome recipe, and those two cookies are every bit as good as their big batch buddies!

I’ve made these twice. The first time around the cookies turned out great, but they didn’t have that ooey-gooey factor that I was hoping for. I made some changes for the second batch, which totally did the trick.

If you like cookies that rise and then don’t deflate too much, follow the recipe exactly. If you want cookies that look mine pictured, use 1/4 cup flour minus 1 teaspoon. After you form the cookies, refrigerate them until cold, then remove from refrigerator and bring back up to almost room temperature before you bake.

A clever recipe from No. 2 Pencil.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons room temperature butter
  • 2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 heaping tablespoons of semisweet chocolate chips (I chopped mine)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Blend softened butter, sugars, salt, and vanilla together by hand. Add egg yolk and stir again. Add baking soda and flour and stir until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

Form cookie dough into two balls and place on baking sheet. The cookies will spread during baking, so make sure they are several inches apart. Bake for 8 to 9 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.

Remove baking sheet from oven and give the baking sheet a firm, but careful bang on the counter top. This will deflate the cookie and give it a perfect wrinkly appearance. (I found this doesn’t always work, but I banged the baking sheet anyway.)

WHAT DO YOU AMERICANS MEAN WHEN A SHOW IS ON AT LIKE FUCKIN “8/7c” WHAT IS THAT????

We never switched over to metric timekeeping. The c stands for “Caw”, referring to how many times a majestic eagle has flown overhead and cawed that day. Sometimes the eagles are feeling sluggish, so the show could be on after either the 7th or 8th caw.
