44% of the audience of Guardians of the Galaxy is female and all the speculation states that women went to see it for Chris Pratt’s body. I don’t think that’s fair. Maybe (and this is crazy) they just like kickass movies with space shit and explosions. Maybe women can do things without men being their motivation. Maybe.
I WENT FOR THE TALKING RACCOON MOTHAFUCKAS
…I went for the soundtrack and the talking tree. Look how that went down…
you added to a post of mine that you searched around for some alternatives to running (I usually run and ride a bike when this stuff happens) and I'm actually curious to know what works for you so I could maybe get a general idea of what might be best for me. ( if you dont mind)
No, not at all! I started out with going to the gym on the ellipticals and treadmill, but I found with that, I wasn’t really getting anywhere. I wanted to avoid spending money where I could, so I started looking up workout videos on youtube. I pretty much just tried out a few things from dance to weights to kickboxing to yoga. I’m personally a very driven person, so if you throw a challenge in front of my face, I’ll do it. So when I stumbled upon Jillian Michaels’ stuff, I was all over it. She has 30 day challenges or three week challenges which I really like. Her 30 Day Shred is my go-to when I want exercise in 20 minute bursts and it’s super effective for weight loss. I also do Insanity, but it’s super intense and 35 minutes to a full hour of hell if you’re not crazy about interval training. You pretty much have to already be physically used to working out in order to do it.
But my favourite thing right now is yoga. It’s great because it’s actually one of the main things people recommend for combatting derma. I’m really into hot yoga, because I find it is challenging and you pretty much just sweat out all the unhealthy crud in your skin, which makes it a lot easier to avoid picking. It is pretty expensive to keep up in the studio though. But I would totally recommend any yoga for even just the meditative breathing aspect of it. It’s been a game changer in terms of dropping my anxiety levels and handling my picking. So yeah… Yoga: 10/10 would recommend! :D
