Aiming to be a doctor.
Here because of my friends.
I am happy to talk any time.
sailoreuterpe asked: Hi, Ami! I have a question. I've been on a safe diet for a few months and I've lost some weight. However, I need to start working out to lose more weight. I really don't like exercising, though. Do you have any ideas on how to make exercising more fun?
I’m glad to hear that you have found personal success in your chosen diet, and I trust that you’ve discussed it with your doctor or nutritionist before starting.
There are lots of ways to make exercising more fun;
- Have you considered exercising with friends? I’ve heard that the mutual support and inspiration from exercising with others encourages you to continue and stick to a regime where you might otherwise want to stop.
- If you prefer to exercise alone, like myself, music is a great driving force. Listen to a song that really inspires you, that makes you really think and gets you concentrating on something other than your exercise; often, the problem people have with exercise is that they focus on it too much so that it feels harder than it is. Distracting yourself with good music lets your body take over naturally and can help you exercise for longer.
- Swimming is a really fun and effective way to exercise. Structured laps are the best and fastest way to lose weight and tone your body, but even casual play activities in the water will help you burn energy faster than on land. Doing regular exercise in water slows down the movements and makes them more manageable while actually making your body work harder.
- There are many, many sports that make the body move in different ways. Have you thought about martial arts, tennis, lacrosse, fencing, yoga, weight lifting, or dance? Where one form of exercise might make you feel uncomfortable and unhappy, another might be one that you really enjoy. Look and see if there are local classes in sports you haven’t tried before and see if any are right for you.
I hope this can help, and I wish you continued success with your diet and exercise regime!
okay im really shy about sharing this because it has a lot of my own personal weaknesses in it
but i feel like many people could benefit from this basic format
if you have things in your life that are upsetting you
sometimes using this basic diagram and following it, can help you get perspective and figure out how to help yourself.
fill in the blanks for your own situation and work towards a positive result and i promise it will help you. this is what i do every time im feeling down and it almost always helps me.
figure out what you do that is negative. accept it. and realize what you should do to be positive and work towards it.
its okay to have insecurities. its normal. we all have them. but the strongest thing a person can do is accept it and try to find positive results in spite of everything.
Multidisciplinary Team to Reexamine Ruins of Troy
Troy, the palatial city of prehistory, sacked by the Greeks through trickery and a fabled wooden horse, will be excavated anew beginning in 2013 by a cross-disciplinary team of archaeologists and other scientists.
The new expedition will be led by Univ. of Wisconsin-Madison classics Prof. William Aylward, an archaeologist with long experience digging in the ruins of classical antiquity, including Troy itself. The new international project at Troy, to be conducted under the auspices of and in cooperation with Turkey’s Çanakkale Onsekiz Mart Univ., will begin a series of summer-time expeditions beginning in 2013.

X-rays Unravel Mysterious Degradation of Van Gogh Painting
With a sophisticated X-ray analysis, scientists have identified why parts of the Van Gogh painting “Flowers in a blue vase” have changed color over time: a supposedly protective varnish applied after the master’s death has made some bright yellow flowers turn to an orange-grey color. The origin of this alteration is a hitherto unknown degradation process at the interface between paint and varnish, which studies at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) in Grenoble (France) and at Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY in Hamburg (Germany) have revealed for the first time.

The start of the Universe should be modeled not as a Big Bang but more like water freezing into ice, according to a team of theoretical physicists at the Univ. of Melbourne and RMIT Univ.
They have suggested that by investigating the cracks and crevices common to all crystals - including ice - our understanding of the nature of the Universe could be revolutionized. Lead researcher on the project, James Quach says current theorizing is the latest in a long quest by humans to understand the origins and nature of the Universe.
