Things you should know if you plan on getting fit

1. The process isn’t gonna be fast:

When you go on social media you see social media influencers posting videos about getting fit in five days or “Getting abs in five days” and that’s not realistic . Any influencer that post that are lying to people because they know that people would wanna see results quick. But the truth is you just have to be patient and consistent and you will see results eventually.

2. Working out for over 2 hours a day will get quicker and better results :

I’ve heard so many stories about people doing hours of training sessions in the gym and that’s just not necessary , because all you could possibly be doing is overworking your muscles which could lead to fatigue, or joint pain.

3. Find what works for you:

There are so many different workout styles that if running or cardiovascular exercise isn’t your thing then try something that makes you happy, find what works for you even if it’s pilates,yoga or weight lifting. Or even try all of the above.

4. Don’t take everything so serious :

People are too hard on themselves when they’re trying to get in shape that they end up loosing motivation. But getting in shape isn’t a competition , you should only be concerned with being better than you were before and that matters more than trying to compete with fit people you see on social media.

3. Red Beach, Panjin, in China

This doesn’t even look real, this beach is covered in seaweed called Sueda, which happens to turns bright red in the fall. Unfortunately only a small section of the beach is open to the public, but it can be explored in a wooden walkway that stretches out to sea.

4. The Bermuda Triangle in North Atlantic Ocean

3 Ridiculous romance books I wouldn’t read again: My honest opinions

I’m gonna list books that I read that were absolutely ridiculous and I don’t know what the author was thinking when they wrote these. Although you guys might have different opinions than me and you might love these following books. Needless to say these books were frustrating to read in my opinion.

Spoilers ahead

1. Brothers South of mason dixon by Abbi Glines

I love this author but this book wasn’t her best.

Plot: The only thing hotter than the weather South of the Mason Dixon line are the boys. Worn, faded blue jeans, slow Southern drawls, and those naughty moments in the back of pickup trucks a girl never forgets. Welcome to the world of the Sutton boys. Five brothers who fight, party, drink a little too much, but more importantly, they love their momma. Nothing can tear them apart… except women. Especially a red headed beauty with secrets. No one truly knows her… not a Sutton boy… and not Dixie Monroe. Scarlet North smiles on the outside but inside her damage runs deep.

• this book was completely ridiculous the male lead in this book was a jerk for no reason at all, there was no back story to why he was the way he was.

• He was having a affair with his twin brothers girlfriend in the previous book before yet he doesn’t seem to care that he hurt him… like at all. He pretty much only cared about himself 85% of the book. He never even apologized for it.

• They both pretty much only seemed to care for themselves.

2. Broken love series by B.B. Reid

This book was a complete mess, interesting but also disturbing.

Plot: I don’t believe in fairy tales and Prince Charming.
I believe in fear.
He taught me how to be afraid.
We first met on a playground on a wonderful summer day. It was the first time he hurt me and it wouldn’t be the last. For ten years, he’s been my tormentor and I’ve been his forbidden. But then he went away, and yet I was still afraid.
Now he’s back and wants more than just my tears. You see…he thinks I sent him away so now he wants revenge…and he knows just how to get it.

• the hero of this story bullied the main character, constantly threatened her, sexually assulted, embarrassed her and throughout the whole entire book the only thing she could think of is how hot she thought he was??? I DON’T THINK SO

•Her so called best friend knew about the abuse that was going on and did absolutely nothing

• Main character also had no backbone at all .

• Book 2 is about the heros brother from book 1. (almost worse than book one) And yes I read it because I like to torture myself. The main character cheated on the heroine (plenty of times) in the past yet she took him back and when she finally leaves him he’s bitter and plays the victim even though he’s the one that messed up.

• He treats her like crap ,basically abuses her in one scene, and towards the end of the book she takes him back so easily because she also had absolutely no backbone like the heroine in the book before.

• Other books wasn’t as bad.

• This book will be fine to you as long as you don’t mind a book where someone actually ends up with their abuser in the end…like everything is fine and dandy.

3. Fallen crest high series by Tijan

This whole entire book series was ridiculous, and did I read it? Yes I did. because I actually had faith the series would get better.

Plot: Mason and Logan Kade are two brothers who did their own thing. They were rich and expected to attend her school, Fallen Crest Academy. They chose public school and now Samantha has to live with them. The problem is that she doesn’t care at all: about them, about her friends, about her cheating boyfriend, or even about her parent’s divorce. But maybe that’s a good thing. Maybe change is a good thing.

• the main male characters in the book were bitter and angry for no reason at all. They bullied the heroines mom and she allowed it.

• Lead character samantha was really boring and had no personality at all

• Mason and Logan had rich people problems, treated people like crap and has big egos yet girls loved them anyway, and guys still went out of their way to befriend them.

• samantha pretty much just sat back and tolerated the destructive things they did with no opinion.

• Didn’t understand the characters and the book was a big mess….actually the whole series seemed like a big mess. So many messed up things happened along the way I don’t remember it all.

Struggling with Anxiety:

“Fear is inevitable, I have to accept that, but I cannot allow it to paralyze me.”

I have anxiety even when I try to force myself not too, I tell myself that whatever it is that’s bothering me is no big deal but it still doesn’t take away the shaking of my hands or the nausea that I feel more than I would like to admit. I remember when I was in high school I had anxiety/social anxiety alot and didn’t even realize that I had it. I thought I was just a shy person but I couldn’t figure out why I was worried about things I felt like normal people wouldnt even think about.

It wasn’t until after I graduated that I realized I shouldn’t be feeling the amount of anxiousness that I felt almost everyday before school. So now i know what the problem is, the question is ” what do I do about it?” What I’ve been trying to tell myself now is don’t let any anxiety or thoughts stop you from doing what you want . You have decide which one is stronger? My dreams or my anxiety. And everyday I’m still trying to push through and find the courage to do the things I always wanted.

“Your mind is your prison when you focus on your fear.”

“There’s just so much going on in my mind, sometimes I can’t keep up with what’s going on around me.” –unknown

“The thing about an anxiety disorder is that you know it is stupid. You know with all your heart that it wasn’t a big deal and that it should roll off of you. But that is where the disorder kicks in. Suddenly the small things is very big and it keeps growing in your head, flooding your chest, and trying to escape from under your skin. You know with all of your heart that you’re being ridiculous and you hate every minute of it.”

4 Favorite fantasy books that I like…so far:

So everyone that reads have different type of genres that they really love to read the most. One of mine is fantasy, so I’m gonna share my favourites and maybe you guys would like them too.

1. The curse of the gods series by Jaymin Eve & Jane Washington

If you’re looking for a books that has some comedy in it this is a great one. You’ll never be bored.

Plot:
In Minatsol, being a dweller means that you are literally no better than dirt. In fact, dirt might actually be more useful than Willa. Her life will be one of servitude to the sols, the magic-blessed beings who could one day be chosen to become gods.
At least her outer village is far removed from the cities of the sols, and she won’t ever be forced to present herself to them… Until one small mistake changes everything, and Willa is awarded a position to serve at Blesswood, the top sol academy in the world—a position that she definitely did not earn.
Under the sudden, watchful eye of the gods, she will be tasked to serve the Abcurse brothers, five sols built of arrogance, perfection and power. They are almost gods themselves, and under their service she is either going to end up sentenced to death, or else they are going to ruin her so badly that she will wish for it.

2. The covenant series by Jennifer l Armentrout

OMG I love this book! It’s one of the first that got me interested in reading in the first place because I didn’t always enjoy it. This series is filled with adventure, and romance if you’re looking for both. And I have all books

Plot: Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden. Unfortunately, she’s crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn’t her biggest problem–staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is.
If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.

3. The lux series by Jennifer l Armentrout

When I first read the plot I thought a books about aliens couldn’t possibly be good…but I was wrong.

Plot: Starting over sucks.
When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring… until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.
And then he opened his mouth.
Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something… unexpected happens.
The hot alien living next door marks me.
You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.
If I don’t kill him first, that is

4. The black mage by Rachel E Carter

This book was unexpected and amazing

Plot: Magic. Romance. War. Perfect for fans of Throne of Glass, Falling Kingdoms, and Tamora Pierce.

Before the age of seventeen, the young men and women of Jerar are given a choice —pursue a trade or enroll in a trial year in one of the realm’s three war schools to study as a soldier, knight, or mage…

For fifteen-year-old Ryiah, the choice has always been easy. Become a mage and train in Combat, the most prestigious faction of magic.

Yet when she arrives, Ry finds herself competing against friend and foe for one of the exalted apprenticeships. Everyone is rooting for her to fail—first and foremost among them is Prince Darren, the school prodigy who has done nothing but make life miserable since she arrived.

Will Ry survive, or will her dream go down in flames?

I look forward to making post about the random things that go through my mind on a daily basis.
