YOU CAN GET THEM REPAIRED THOUGH. There’s a place in NYC called Denim Therapy; I’ve had my favorite jeans fixed by them, where it was almost as big a hole as this one. They use some kind of really tough lattice-type cotton and so far (it’s been 6 months) the jeans are still perfect.
You just mail them in with a note explaining what you want fixed and they mail them back in like two weeks. It was like $15 too - SO WORTH IT since jeans are a bitch and a half to shop for.

I have a confession: I’m obsessed with mason jars. I’ve completely replaced my need for tupperware with jars of all sizes. And with Target selling packs of them for under $10 my collection has been growing! I found these half sized jars and they inspired me to start making grab and go lunches every week. These recipes are great hot or cold, store well in the fridge, and are super easy for weekend meal prep.

Here’s the lightened up guacamole recipe for the burrito bowl jar and here’s the lightened up pesto recipe for the pesto quinoa jar. :)

The chilled pad thai jar is my current favorite thing to put together on a day off to have ready made meals for work. So easy, so quick, so tasty. Gotta try the other ones next.

That’s right guys! Our kick ass femme today is none other than a young maiden who is one of the fiercest warriors Asgard has ever known:

Sif, the sister of Heimdall, has been the constant companion of Thor and Balder since childhood. Like most Asgardians, Sif was born with golden hair. Hers,…

I was checking my tag and this popped up again near the top!

It’s like a year old but still so good and makes me grin like an idiot :D

my therapist taught me to start thinking of my anxiety as my panicky friend
it’s working???

this is so cute omg

Woah this is super useful!!

For all my anxious friends out there.

This totally works! Some of us get stuck in the sense that we *are* our emotions, so they overwhelm us and we can’t do anything about them. When you give your emotion an identity separate from you, it gives you the distance to make better judgments about it, and to comfort yourself better. 10/10 therapy veterans would recommend.

Decline Push-Ups

Get into plank position, with your hands underneath your shoulders and place your feet on a box or bench. This increases the amount of your body weight you have to lift, making the exercise harder. Lower your body until your chest nearly touches the floor. Pause, then push back to the starting position as quickly as possible. That’s one rep.

This workout compilation is all about controlled movements. Each one features limited reps but done at a much slower, more controlled pace. You should work with all of them to actively engage the targeted muscle groups so, for example, when you do a push up, think about the muscles being engaged, think about holding your core and quads strong. This type of mental awareness will both help you have great form and help you get the best results from each action. You can combine any of these or work them into your existing routine. If you’re looking for fat loss make sure you add in extra cardio- try swapping out the 5 minute warm up for 20-30 minutes of your favorite type of heart pumping activity. Also don’t forget rest days! I usually suggest something like arms day->abs day->legs day-> rest day.

Finally remember that nutrition is the cornerstone of any fitness program. Make sure you’re giving your body the calories and nutrients it needs to perform at it’s best and stay strong and healthy!
