i feel like my back is breaking.
this is fantastic! i could really use a massage, pleasey please? during dance, we were doing floor work and split in half, and while she was working with the other girls, i just laid there, trying to get my back to feel normal. my run was really rough. i think i ran like 2.3-ish before walking and then just alternated between walking and running. 3.1 miles in 32:12, so it could have been a lot...
remember how i hoped to finish that 5 mile race in...
finished in 59:59. now, i’m going to change, go to dance, and then go on my first run since the race. this will be… interesting?
I hit a wall.
talkcurvygirl: I don’t think I can do this. I want to. I need to. I want to fit into a smaller dress for Prom. I want to actually GO to prom. I don’t want to be embarrassed of my body come summer either. Thinking of that makes me cry. But it’s so fucking hard, especially when you’re doing it all alone. /Negative post. you’re not alone, broski! i’m here for you. we can do this!
kay, so, some more goals i have (i feel like i...
scorpion: handstand. qualify for/run in boston. yep yep yep.
An Atheist Professor of Philosophy was speaking to...
Professor: You are a Christian, aren’t you, son?
Student: Yes, sir.
Professor: So, you believe in God?
Student: Absolutely, sir.
Professor: Is God good?
Professor: My brother died of cancer, even though he prayed to God to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But God didn’t. How is God good, then? Hmm?
(Student was silent)
Professor: You can’t answer, can you? Let’s start again, young fella. Is God good?
Professor: Is Satan good?
Professor: Where does Satan come from?
Student: From.. God.
Professor: That’s right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?
Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn’t it? And God did make everything. Correct?
Professor: So who created evil?
(Student didn’t answer)
Professor: Is there sickness? Immortality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don’t they?
Student: Yes, sir.
Professor: So, who created them?
(Student had no answer)
Professor: Science says you have 5 senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son.. have you ever seen God?
Student: No, sir.
Professor: Tell us if you have ever heard your God.
Student: No, sir.
Professor: Have you ever felt your God, tasted your God, smelt your God? Have you ever had any sensory perception of God, for that matter?
Student: No, sir. I’m afraid I haven’t.
Professor: Yet you still believe in Him?
Professor: According to empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, Science says your God doesn’t exist. What do you say to that, son?
Student: Nothing. I only have my Faith.
Professor: Yes, Faith. And that is the problem Science has.
Student: Professor, is there such a thing as Heat?
Student: And is there such a thing as Cold?
Student: No, sir, there isn’t.
(The Lecture Theatre became very quiet with this turn of events)
Student: Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don’t have anything called cold. We can hit 458 Degrees below Zero which is no heat, but we can’t go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of Heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.
(There was a pon-drop silence in the Lecture Theatre)
Student: What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?
Professor: Yes. What is night if there isn’t darkness?
Student: You’re wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have Low Light, Normal Light, Bright Light, Flashing Light… But if you have No Light constantly, you have nothing and it’s called Darkness, isn’t it? In reality, darkness isn’t. If it is, You would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn’t you?
Professor: So what is the point you are making, young man?
Student: Sir, my point is, your Philosophical Premise is flawed.
Professor: Flawed? Can you explain how?
Student: Sir, you are working on the Premise of Duality. You argue there is Life and then there is Death, a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can’t even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life, just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?
Professor: If you are referring to the Natural Evolutionary Process, yes of course, I do.
Student: Have you ever observed Evolution with your own eyes, sir?
(The professor shook his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument was going)
Student: Since no one has ever observed the Process of Evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a Scientist but a Preacher?
(The class was in uproar)
Student: Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor’s brain?
(The class broke out into laughter)
Student: Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor’s brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? .. No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established Rules of Empirical, Stable and Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures?
(The room was silent. The Professor stared at the student, his face unfathomable)
Professor: I guess you’ll have to take them on Faith, son.
Student: That is it, sir.. exactly! The link between man and God is Faith. That is all that keeps things alive and moving!
That student was Albert Einstein.
AMAZING. BRILLIANT. GENIUS.
EINSTEIN WAS BORN INTO A JEWISH FAMILY. HE WAS NOT A CHRISTIAN. HE WAS, IN FACT, AGNOSTIC. HELLO YOU NITWITS HE DID NOT SAY THIS. ALSO, DARWINISM WASN'T WIDELY ACCEPTED UNTIL THE 1930S, WHEN EINSTEIN WAS IN HIS 50S AND WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN A STUDENT TAKING A PHILOSOPHY CLASS. additionally: the temperature given for absolute zero is wrong, and because he's european, it should have been in celsius, not fahrenheit, and because he's a scientist, it should have been kelvin; about half the words that have been capitalized should not have been.
i’m please with this. it’s down 1.6 pounds from last sunday, and i don’t think all of it is water weight. although, if i had eaten fewer chips last night, i probably would have been better off. but whatever. can’t change that now. gotta just keep moving forward! hoping to be about 151 next week.
maybe you guys can help me.
since my best friend is all but useless in these kinds of situations. so, there’s this guy i work with, and he likes me. there’s a lot of drama surrounding it with this girl who likes him and the guy that i used to date who it turns out is actually gay and let’s not even go there tonight. and i think i might like him back. i like him a lot more than the guy who turned out to...

katelosesweight: kristalosesit: mybabybobooiloveyou: love <3 me!
i am going to be in a world of pain tomorrow.
300 squats in 14:58. 200 crunches and 20 push ups broken up (50 crunches/5 pushups x4) in 7:17.
exercise plans for the night!
300 “killer” squats. i say “killer” in quotes because i’m a dancer, and 300 squats (or as we call them, pliés) is a warm-up for us. beach workout. depending on how long it’s taking me, i might only do two sets rather than the full three. or i might only do one. but i’m hoping to do at least two.
i still have 112 calories left for the day. :)
even if i did eat two cookies. and i still need to do a proper workout, not just shoveling snow. also, i bought a bunch of 100-calorie packs to eat during personal financing this next semester so i don’t eat as much during lunch. and some sweatpants! every. single. medium. was gone, so i got some smalls. the mediums i have are a wee bit big, though, so maybe these’ll fit better. and...
eat mah jelly toast. play some games on neopets until maybe like 9? if i finish early, read artemis fowl until 9. go shovel snow. lunch- veggie corn dog + carrots. put a load of laundry in the washer. watch gladiator. laundry. do government (WHOA. DOING HOMEWORK ON A SNOW DAY?!??!). dinner- chiken tenders + carrots. go down to kmart and buy some stuff. shovel again, if necessary. ...
I just did 220 jumping jacks
talkcurvygirl: and now I’m going to do 220 crunches/squats. Jayme I hate/love you. just think how boss you are going to look/feel by the time summer rolls around! and when you go off to boston, all the boys are going to be like HOT DAMN and trying to jump on your ladydick.
i still ended up being over.
but i wasn’t hungry, so i didn’t have that apple. so ima finish my gov and go to sleep. we have a delay tomorrow, so i’ll do some exercisin’ before i go to school. my alarm is set for 8:30 rather than 7:01 tomorrow. it’s gonna be nice. :)
okay, so maybe i should have eaten these three white chocolate chip cookies or the gob. but i’m only at like 2000 calories, and i haven’t done my ab work yet. that’s like 100 calories there, at least. and i can stretch it out and get in some cardio to make it 200+. and then i’ll have an apple and my total will be under 2000. i can do this. i don’t need to go...
dearest ladies and/or gents: what are your...
dance got cancelled tonight and i need some serious ab work. i’m going to do the 200 side plank lift challenge, but i need something to work the front of my abs, too. i might do mer’s ab stuff, but i get bored of crunch variations after awhile.
i currently have 542 calories left for the day.
and i still have ~75 minutes of dance + maybe running/elliptical, depending on how my calves feel/how much of my government i finish before i head off to dance in an hour and a half. no matter how many calories i burn from exercising, though, i want to eat no more than 1700 total, which means i then have 687 to eat, total. i can do this. no problem. off to do government and re-review chemical...
downloaded some apps for my itouch. :)
runkeeper (the pro version is FREE! get it NOW!) and myfitnesspal. i’ve never used runkeeper before, but it looks really handy and i downloaded a 16 week half training thing that will have me running it on the 14th, so it’s only a day off. i used to use myfitnesspal and i lost 4-ish pounds. hopefully, i’ll stick to it longer this time and lose even more!
today was the last morning make up for all gym and...
we played volleyball on the half-court. 12 people on each team. it was slightly ridiculous. nobody could move. my team lost by a point. ): everyone had to run 5 laps to make up for the fact that we didn’t do too much moving during the game. my calves are KILLING me for some reason and i hope it goes away soon because i have dance tomorrow and i want to run and then friday is the dance...
