SOMEBODY TAKE ME TO A FADO PERFORMANCE ALREADY! 🙇
'Fado' or 'Fate' as it can be officially translated into, is a genre of Portuguese music that originated in Lisbon (capital of Portuguese). The music is estimated to have been born 200-300 years ago sung by seafarers (Fado Marinheiro), expressing longing for the shores, their wives and children. Traditional Fado is played using a Portuguese guitar (guitarra portuguesa) and a classical guitar. 🎤🎶
Fados is sung in restaurants with no microphones and dim lighting. Since the music requires concentration, guests are asked to pause from eating to avoid sounds of cutlery. 🍴🛇
However, before becoming popular in the 20th century, Fado was considered as evil music, sung by prostitutes. The Fadista (Fado singer) who most influenced the music was Amália Rodrigues - the Queen of Fado. 😍
Here's she, the enchanting one!💖
NO WONDER, FAGO IS CALLED THE SOUL OF PORTUGAL .
If anyone was out in the water, Porter needed to be out there too. 💦 Though she just wanted to climb on top of you and then didn't know what to do... which meant we usually ended up standing there holding her afloat. Turns out, it is tough to swim around while holding a 60lb flailing anchor wearing a life vest. 🙄
So, our solution was to give her her own floaty. ⛱️ That way she could hang out with us in the water without being directly on top of us.
And now I present to you, the dog that requires not one, but TWO flotation devices!! 🎽🎽

Relaxing in the lounge before a long flight ✈️ home #taco 🌮 time #day38
I bought them
They are the perfect seasonings for rice and some Japanese food. Particularly I like sushi-zu, sushi seasoning, and I used to have rice with it when I was in Japan. I’ll do that from tomorrow. And my motivation to study has been rebirthing recently. I will do my best for everything. My motto is winning me of the previous day.

A beautiful card and thank you from myton for the £601.50 raised at Mums funeral, so add that to the £850 raised online and it’s a massive £1451.50! I can’t thank everyone enough. If anyone would like to donate still let me know, would be amazing to hit £1500. #mytonhospice#happydays#day38

#day38#phase2#hcgdiet#hcgnz#hcgmeals I didn't actually have this meal today but it's inspiration for tomorrow night's meal. I've got 5 more days on this restricted phase of the programme. Today I've just passed the 10kg mark and although that's SO great It's also kinda weird having it not be that noticable, as I've been at this weight before. But I'm doing it for me and have to remember it's about how it makes me feel. I'm feeling quite nervous about eating more 'normally' again and anxious about slipping up again, and having to start all over. I have some ideas about how I'll manage things, and the next phase is a gradual reintroduction to new foods, so it's not like jumping in the deep end! I had a dream last night I was at the fridge in a 'fuck it' kinda mood, grabbing a baguette. As I started eating it I felt terrible about myself and despite wanting to stuff it all down, I threw it down instead. Here's hoping! #feelingthefeels#foodjournal#fears#vulnerability#goals

Brian came into the OR and asked me what I was doing tonight. I said, “I think I’m hanging out with your kids!” Yup he was just checking I hadn’t forgot 😂. Always a fun night playing all the games I loved when I was kid, and studying the 50 states with the delightful Barki children, and of course “Fake” Hannah and Miss Kayla. I also have a new appreciation for families in line for food in the dining room. #Day38#allthegames#allthestates
Monday mornings! :/
We reached home really late and then I couldn’t sleep for a long time and when I finally did I couldn’t make it to class, so I sat home all day and then we went to the supermarket in the evening and bought a lot of stuff and I thought I’d study but I didn’t but we had lots of salad in the afternoon as we watched the Da Vinci Code. One hell of a movie, for sure! So much respect for that guy now! Getting around those locations is going to be a totally different feeling thanks to him. :D
Day 38: I thought I was gonna take it easy today. Instead I reached two of my goals - to hit 1200 cal and 500 floors in an hour 🙌🏼
What did it take? 1 hour of intervals with 1 min at level 20 and 1 min at level 14. Every 10 min I do 1 min at level 4 for a water break.
I often get asked how the heck I do that much cardio? Honestly I enjoy it now but it wasn’t always that way.
Some tips that might help:
1) Make a “cardio” playlist - if I have upbeat music it makes me move faster
2) Set a goal. If I’m just given a time limit I just go through the motions constantly checking the clock but if I give myself a goal (eg. 300 cal in a certain amount of time) it makes it go faster and is more enjoyable (for me anyways)
3) STRENGTH TRAIN YOUR LEGS! Stronger legs equals easier stairmaster sessions. Also, if you’ve ever felt the burn of squatting super heavy for a few reps then the burn of the stairmaster is nothing 😁
4) I don’t do this often but sometimes turning the TV on and just moving while watching a show makes the time fly by
5) Think about the people who would give anything to just be able to stand or walk and be grateful you still have your physical abilities. That alone should be enough to make you move

Miss Amazing! She works extremely hard in all that she does... I love how she gets lost in time and does more than she’s suppose to.
In case you were wondering, my homeschooler is well educated! Instead of bigger numbers, she chose zeros.... haha clever! She miscalculated on her morning starter, but instead of correcting her immediately I took the picture first because nothing is perfect!
After playing to the very end of two sets of dead strings, my new set is finally here!!!!! When I started violin, I was honestly never positive how committed I would be to it. I also didn't expect to go through strings very quickly as a beginner. So I never bought in to keeping a full new set of spares on hand.
But I have found myself very much in love with the instrument. I also find that I play hard and wear through a set as fast as any serious player. So that will be changing soon. In a month or two, I plan to get a whole new set of strings to have on-hand for when these wear out in addition to a spare E string. In the meantime, I am fully in love with my new set of Il Cannone Medium strings by @larsenstrings.
This is my second set of Il Cannone but my first playing on a set entirely of medium tension strings, and I am so excited to have them installed fresh on my English violin made in the 1790's by Adam Martin in Hermitage Bridge, London. They already sound incredible, and they will sound even better once broken in! New, fresh videos of my progress and what I've been working on will be coming very soon, in a few days, once these have broken in a bit. Thank you, Larsen Strings!!!!! 💜
Getting into your underwear before going for a PR creates an extremely anabolic effect in the body which allows you to lift more weight...it's science srs. Decided to do a single just for fun while doing deadlifts today and got 495 lbs up pretty easily. While this is technically a PR (most I got before this was 475 when I was 17, then I stopped deadlifting altogether), this felt way too easy and like I could've gotten another rep. Probably going to go for something closer to a real max at the end of this rebound.

Le persone che hanno obiettivi superiori alla media non conoscono la differenza tra i giorni feriali e i fine settimana. Rimangono concentrati finché non ottengono ciò che è necessario per vivere i loro sogni.
