Because circumstances don't dictate champions, right? ;)
Feel the Burn!
I’m ALL about that endorphin high! haha I just remind myself that I’m going to feel so good so soon :) and that helps SO much! I also just like to tell myself that my body can do this, it’s only my mind that says I can’t.
Lol @mchlyang your favorite phrase!!! You should write a card about it :P
Sometimes when motivation fails, I just get up and get my body moving -- without thinking about how much it will hurt/how staggered my breathing will/ or how tough it will be. I just go into it without thinking about it.

How Erotica Stories Written for Women are Different
Men and women are different not just by the make but also by nature. They have a different approach to different situations; they prefer the same thing differently. Same goes for erotica. Women prefer a different approach to erotica as compared to men. What’s Erotica to Women? Women’s concept of porn or erotica revolves around the romantic novel. There is a vast difference between what arouses a man vs. what arouses a woman. They are not willing to pay for the porn but happily do so for reading romance fiction. Even though sex is a vital part of romance stories, they are not crucial to the enjoyment of a woman. If you pay attention, the depiction of sex scenes in those romantic stories is tame as compared to erotic stories. And that is erotica for women. They pay more emphasis on emotions and the relationship of both characters. The hero of the romance fictions might be dangerous, virile and lusty, but they are far from being just sex objects, unlike women in the erotica for men. As the plot develops, the hero becomes more human, more like vulnerable. And he falls in love with the innocent and less experienced heroine. All the heroes of romantic fictions are alpha males and most women are attracted to them magnetically. His physical prowess, competence, and status confidence make him dominant. It is this male authority that women are susceptible to and are willing to submit them to. In short, women have an erotic preference for alpha dominance. His voice, his scent, his gait and movement, his sharply defines features, these hold erotic appeal to women. Even in the lesbian erotica stories you will notice that one of them is fierce, attractive and an alpha in the crowd. Erotica for women is that. Even though, today's women are not really in the need of a forceful male and yet they find the fierce protectiveness of swaggering alphas immensely attractive and arousing. The Difference The novel ‘A Handbook For My Lover’ has become erotica by the sheer virtue of a protagonist, who is unidentified and who reveals and revels in her desires. But the writer, Rosalyn D’mello, refuses to view it as erotica. The language is evocative and it arouses the readers, making them privy to sensuousness. Even in the writing, women only erotica is different. You can feel the subtle difference, even in the lesbian erotica stories. A female erotica writer and reader, both emphasize emotions. They are unhesitatingly expressive about their longing and yearning but often in isolation. The narrative of erotica by a female point of view lingers beyond the act and before that as well, unlike in a man’s narrative. Also, the fantasies of a man are different from those of a woman. Men spend less time in foreplay and seduction. And they have a strong preference for younger women, girls while women prefer older men because of their competence and confidence. Men and women are naturally different and that reflects in their erotic preferences as well.
How Does the Google BERT Update Impact the 2020 SEO Environment
The BERT update is the biggest update in search since the last 5 years, as well as the most influential step in the efforts of search. However, the announcements and impact in the SEO industry is comparatively little. Still, it’s not perfectly clear how the SEO environment will react due to the Google’s BERT update. However, let’s talk the exact influence SEO professionals are dealing with after the update. What is Google BERT targeting? According to Google’s own prediction, the BERT update will affect 10% of the total queries. It might be a huge number, but the affect will not be significant for the SEO community standards, due to the fact that the update is more concerned with “longer, more conversational queries”. Apparently, such longer queries aren’t as heavily targeted by SEO experts. The primary question stays with what the user wants to find out in the search query. There are plenty of examples explaining the changes that BERT made. Search Engine Journal has provided an understanding of the BERT update through “how to catch a cow fishing”. Expectedly, the phrase has nothing to do with the image that might have popped up in your mind, but everything with a unique sense of “cow” related to fishing, indicating a large striped bass. By associating the BERT update with both rankings and featured snippets in Search, Google does a much better job in aiding users find more relevant information. Apparently, the improvements in search results will come in more languages and locales with time. Moreover, longer, more conversational searches containing instances like to, for, etc. will be specifically catered to better comprehend the meaning of the search query. The entire idea is to help users conduct their search in a natural, personalized way. How BERT affects SEO? Yes, the BERT update does have an effect on the SEO environment. The answer to this question lies in how you would optimize your brand or website in accord with the update. Frankly speaking, according to Google’s public Search Liaison, Danny Sullivan, the effect is nothing new. What Danny actually says that continue doing what you must have been until now: write quality content for users. Evidently, this is nothing new that digital marketers and content creators aren’t aware of, Google has been insisting on quality content for quite some time now and also affecting numerous websites worldwide. However, it’s important to understand the position of SEO with respect to this BERT update. There are a couple of considerations to be taken into account to understand the influence. Identify and optimize for the relevant users’ search intent During the BERT training process, the model acquires two sentences as input and understands how to predict if the latter sentence in the pair is really the consequent sentence in the document. In other words, the algorithm is walking the extra mile to understand the user’s intent through prediction and chances of occurrence. Do remember that search intent is the reason why people conduct a particular search. And what are they trying to do with the search is the responsibility of BERT update to answer. Are they trying to navigate to a particular website or just need a query answered? Optimize for featured snippets According to Google, the update is related to the user’s natural language and comprehending lengthier queries. While the emphasis on the optimization for featured snippets is to increase the speed of answering the user’s intent. Moreover, Google is now getting more focused on displaying featured snippets. For example, here is the query “parking on a hill with no curb”. Previously, Google was more attentive on “curb” and not on “no”. In short, the search engine wasn’t understanding the importance of appropriately acknowledging and responding to the word. Hence, the search results came out as “parking on a hill with curb”. The update has seemingly fixed this issue and made a huge effort is genuinely understanding the true query and its context. Author Bio Steven Clark is a digital marketer and e-learning in reputable firm. He has expansively written for Different type of project at Custom iOS App Developers and Mobile Games Developments. He believes those enrollment agencies need to focus on behavioral skillful of the candidate instead of just looking at their resume.
