Positive Thinking

I've realised that I expend far too much energy caring about what other people think about me and in comparing myself to others. This summer I've decided to focus more on improving me - not in relation to others but in relation to my 'previous self'. You make hundreds of choices everyday and from now on, I'm going to start making the choices which bring me closer to my goals!

Schwarzenegger calls for an effort to integrate people with disabilities
Sao Paulo, BRAZIL.- The actor, bodybuilder and ex-governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger asked the gyms to make an effort to integrate people with disabilities, because "everyone has the right to good physical and intellectual health." "Sport is for everyone, as everyone has the right to good physical and intellectual health. I appeal to all gym owners: to include everyone, with their difficulties and abilities, "said the protagonist of Terminator in Sao Paulo this Friday, during the opening of the" Arnold Sports Festival South America ". This fair celebrates its seventh edition in Brazil -the third that is held in Sao Paulo- as a benchmark for bodybuilding lovers, gym owners, digital influencers and entrepreneurs. For educator Anderson da Silva, who participates in the fair, integration is essential. "What we need is a dissemination of the culture that people with disabilities have their abilities and can practice sport like any other," he explained to Efe. For Fernando Robson, who has an intellectual disability and practices petanque, it is important to "have more training and competitions" in the country. The organizers' expectation is to bill 120 million reais (about $ 30 million) and receive 85,000 visitors in the three days of the event, which ends this Sunday. The public has the opportunity to meet idols of Brazilian bodybuilding, receive gifts, learn about the latest trends in equipment for exercise and sports nutrition. Gyms and food supplements are becoming increasingly popular in Brazil, considered the second country in the world with the most places for bodybuilding (33,000), just behind the United States. It also has more than 8,000 food supplement stores, which bill more than 2 billion reais a year (about $ 500 million). #Sport #physical #bodybuilding
Thanks Everyone :)
Hello people :) Mariah here, with a special message to everyone who follows me, my collections, my meme fam, my quote fam, and anyone who even bothers to look at any of my cards. ^^ To start off, I have something I just have to say. :) edit made by me I have recently gotten 5,000 followers, and a friend of mine on the team inspired me to do this.. I wasnt going to at first, but you all deserve it. :) And a quick personal thank you to her. She's absolutely fantastic. ^^ The thing is, another friend of mine on Vingle, who is also on the team, found out for me that when a new user makes an account, you automatically follow the top popular accounts in the interest you take. I honestly dont care about numbers. I just care about making cards of BTS and making you guys happy with them. ^^ That same friend has told me millions of times that I deserve the number of followers I have. (Thank you for always keeping my spirits up, by the way.) But the thing is... I don't think I do. :) You all have given me so much support and many happy thoughts. I'd be the same me as I always have been even without the follower count. Even though most of the followers I have follow me unwillingly, I'm thankful to those of you who actually enjoy my cards. :) ❤ The reason why this is tagged in the JapaneseAnime and Quotes tag is because I want to thank all of you otakus and quote lovers who have been with me since Day 1 of when I posted my first card to Vingle, 'Quote #1'. MY VERY FIRST CARD!!! Thank you for sticking by me these past... Woah... 2 years! You guys are awesome, really. ಥ⌣ಥ But unfortunately, as I said 100 quotes ago, I'll be ending the quotes at 700. (┳Д┳) But the collection will have 701. (Yeah I know it bothers the hell out of me too..) My two year anniversary of when I first posted a card to Vingle is coming up. November 30th, 2015 I believe. :) I don't know if I'll do anything for that, but I just wanted to state it to show how far I've come on Vingle. ^^ (Don't judge me, let me be proud of myself... ;-; ) Anyways! Thank you everyone, who has read this far. :)  And those who were tagged for daily quotes.. it was nice posting for you all. ^^ But this will be the last time I put this tag list in a card. ╥﹏╥ ♡ Tag List ♡: @joshhsherer @Sugasadamsapple @LeaEsterline @rubychan19 @SimplyAwkward @animelord @AlexisRiver @SteveZuniga @antwonbro12 @LoneRose72 @jazminramirez9 @xigot7forlifex @CrazyOtaku3 @GhoulGasterIRL @MasonBurt @assasingod @crimsonsasuke @xDaisyDaysx @IztimZeugirdor @kouvarisb @DorianBeil @lopleaf19 @Dragonshaow @Dynasty5789 @Nyxxonn @padfoot77 @simpsonsamantha @ZombieDragon @FlotiNMusiCNotE @ChristopherKenn @JackBlink @jeonstussy @Subtilitas And I hope all ARMY are ready for more Bangtan cards from me as I part ways with anime. ^^ Everyone.

Soups Help With Weight Loss, Here's How:
You know, there's nothing more delightful than a warm bowl of soup on a chilly evening. But as a soup lover, I love it anytime. When I was focused on losing weight, soups were a large part of my diet. I made them homemade and by scratch. It's also a great way to use up the last bits of food you have and make it into something tasty. (They're a money saver!) Most soups are low calories, given that they aren't cream based. You want something more broth-y. The sort of homemade soups that I make, I can literally help myself to a whole pot if I wanted to and still stay under a 500 calories. Remember, soups are mostly water, and if you're preparing them with vegetables, and you're going to have something delicious for very few calories. To keep them low calorie, try clear or broth-based soups with plenty of vegetables lean protein, and beans. What you do want avoid are any soups that are cream-based because those can pack on a lot of calories. You'd want to also avoid soups with cheese, sour cream, or just anything cream (cream of tomato, cream of mushroom, cheddar cheese soup). Soups can be very filing and satisfying. You can have a large bowl of it to replace some of your regular meals, or you can just have it as a side. A soup and a salad (watch out for the dressing!) can reduce overeating and can provide great healthy items like vegetables and protein. Here's A Low Calorie Soup Recipe: Moroccan chickpea soup What You'll Need: 1 tbsp olive oil 1 medium onion, chopped 2 celery sticks, chopped 2 tsp ground cumin 600ml hot vegetable stock 400g can chopped plum tomatoes with garlic 400g can chickpeas, rinsed and drained 100g frozen broad beans zest and juice ½ lemon How to Make It: 1) Heat the oil in a large saucepan. In medium-low heat, fry the onion and celery for 10 minutes, or until they're soft. Stir while cooking. 2) Then add the stock, tomatoes, and chickpeas. Simmer for 8 minutes. Add the broad beans, lemon juice. Cook for 2 minutes. Season to taste. You can also check out some of @Allobaber's soup recipes. She has a ton of healthy ones!
