Goodbye House!!!

13I have already watched the two-hour last episode of House. Eight (8) seasons in eight (8) years and it’s really sad that a great show like this has come to its end. My boyfriend introduced the existence of the show to me. After watching the first episode, I really got hooked to it. I got familiar with medical terms, treatments and symptoms watching the show. Here are the things that I love about House:

  • The character of House – being the sarcastic, egoistic and selfish physician. It was quoted that House is the modern Sherlock Holmes. I find him very irritating but he’s still House, the magnificent diagnostician.
  • Franks, bets and drug addiction of House
  • House and Cuddy‘s complicated relationship
  • Friendship of House and Wilson – me and my boyfriend called it “gayish”
  • Imprisonment of House
  • Pretty, handsome and witty physicians – Cameron, Thirteen, Adams, Chase and Foreman
  • Comic characters of Park, Taub and Kutner
  • Amber and Kautner’s death
  • Discovery of Wilson’s cancer
  • Puzzles behind the stories

I did enjoyed the last episode where House was trapped in a building with fire and he was able to talk to Kutner, Amber, Cameron and his ex-wife while hallucinating. Everyone assumed that he was dead after that incident. It was really a sad moment for everyone giving their messages during his eulogy not until Wilson speaks, getting mad and letting everyone knows how bad House is but he suddenly stopped after receiving SMS from House telling him to shut up. He found out that House is not dead. House decided not to let others know that he’s alive and spent his time with Wilson. Watching the whole finale episode, I was also able to see the people behind the production, their efforts, location and happiness of doing the show for eight years. House is one of the best TV shows that I’ve watched and it’s really worth watching. Thumbs up, goodbye House!!!

Motivation in Losing Weight

weight-loss-2Losing weight is the hardest challenge but motivating yourself to lose weight is also difficult. You may experience some bad days that will discourage you to continue your goal but how will you keep your motivation in tact? What will you do to control yourself when the need arises?

Know what you want and go for it. The key in keeping yourself motivated even in the hardest times of your weight loss journey is to really stick with the end result you want. If you really want to lose weight, you have to stay focused.

People have different ways of keeping themselves motivated. A few good tips include:

  • Keep a picture of you at your heaviest weight.
  • Keep one piece of clothing that you want to fit into.
  • Book a holiday.
  • Take part in a diet and fitness regime with a friend.

The tips above are definitely some of the best ways to keep your self motivated. By keeping a picture of yourself at your heaviest, you are reminding yourself that you do not want to look like that anymore. So, the next time you feel like grabbing that next biscuit, you can take out the picture and then think again. Keep it with you if you need to and it should help you to keep focused and motivated. However, it will not help everybody as some people may get depressed at the sight of an old picture and that can cause them to eat unhealthy foods. So, try it and if it doesn’t work for you scrap it straight away!

Keeping a piece of clothing that you want to fit into is also a good idea for some people but again, it will not work for everybody. Generally, stick to whatever makes you want to lose weight and you will keep your motivation with you.

Another thing that you could try is writing down what losing the weight would mean to you. For example, would it make you happier? How would it improve your life? Would you feel healthier maybe? By writing down what losing weight means to you, you will remind yourself just how important it is and whenever you have a bad day you can look at it and give yourself the motivation that you need to carry on. People who lose weight do tend to say that they feel a lot more energetic and more confident too. So, list your goals and work towards them – that way you will stay motivated and you will soon be enjoying a healthier lifestyle.

Weight loss is not as easy as you want it to be. It can be an emotional and tiring journey. There’ll be times when you will not feel like doing any exercise or eating healthy food. With the help of your lists, clothing and friends, you have to encourage yourself to carry on with your weight loss plan.

Eat More, Lose Weight

Mindful-Eating-or-How-Concentration-Can-Help-to-Lose-WeightThe annoying thing about diets is you tend to lessen the food you eat and get hungry easily. It’s not easy to say no to delicious food when your stomach is so hungry craving for anything just to fill your tummy. Dieting is nonsense if you’ll continue eating anything you feel like eating. In order to lose weight, you need to have a healthy eating plan that will keep you full for a long period of time. Losing weight without getting hungry? Yes, it’s possible!

Being Aware of the Food You Eat. You have to eat MORE, not less, to stay full for a longer time but it all depends on the type and amount of food that you eat. Make yourself aware of what is in your food so that you’ll know how much you can eat compared to other food. For example, there are 100 calories in just ¼ of a cup of raisins but for 100 calories you can also have 2 ¼ cups of strawberries. Obviously, the strawberries will keep you full for a long time as you will be having more of them for the same amount of calories as the raisins. So, you need to know what you are eating and its equivalent in order to eat more and still lose weight.

Eating the Same Amount Every Day Is Essential. Diets fail because they lessen your food intake. Now basically your stomach is used to eating the same amount every day. It is not interested in how many calories you are taking in or how much fat is in each meal, it just wants the same amount every single day. This means that you do have to find better food which you can eat more of. One thing that you could do is to make your usual foods a little healthier by substituting something with something else. For example, if you enjoy a nice fried breakfast, you do not have to stop having your favorite meal completely and opt for a smoothie instead. All you have to do is grill various breakfast items such as sausages and bacon and that way you will cut down on quite a lot of the calories. So, you can still have your big breakfast, you just have to make it a little healthier.

Overall, you do need to eat as much as you currently were but you just have to make it healthier. You can have nuts, seeds and fruit for snack to ease any cravings and be more food conscious when creating a main meal. You have a choice of not getting hungry to lose weight when you’re knowledgeable enough of the food you eat.

Penis Hygiene

penis_hygieneKeeping and staying yourself clean is a common basis in the condition of our today’s society. Being careless about your personal hygiene is like stepping beyond the bounds of decency. Nevertheless, we can always use the hints and tips of people who are more experienced or those who had gone through unpleasant situations and are qualified to provide advice. Intimate hygiene is extremely important because it ties in with sex and romance, the two of the most important things in the life of any person. So here’s what every man needs to know about mandatory penis hygiene.

The place to start is the tip of the penis. The foreskin covers the glans, but there is plenty of space for unpleasant things to accumulate between flesh and skin. If you do not wash correctly, you may actually find a white substance gathers, which goes by the name of smegma. Smegma is a combination of dead cells, skin oils and moisture; and bacteria often thrive in this dark, moist and closed space. So, pull the foreskin back as far as it would go and start washing this area with lukewarm water. Be careful to wash both the glans and the inside of the foreskin, the part that is not normally exposed.

Make sure you are super clean down there because there probably is no bigger turn-off for a woman than a man who takes off his shorts revealing an unclean penis. This is generally considered a huge faux pas. Another word of caution, you can’t expect oral sex if you don’t take good care of yourself.

Men who are circumcised have to be just as careful as the non-circumcised guys. The lack of a foreskin means that bacteria and dead cells do not accumulate there, but it also means that the glans is no longer protected from contact with dust, sweat and all sorts of substances and fabrics that would otherwise be kept away from the penis. Some doctors also think that circumcised penises are more exposed to bacteria causing infections of the urinary tract, that is why keeping yourself clean at all times is of paramount importance.

The second area that you should focus on is the base of the penis. This is where sweat and hair combine to produce a strong smell, just as in your armpit. The area needs frequent washing in order to keep sweat from gathering there, especially since it’s covered by underwear for most of the day. Shaving or clipping down the hair is a very good idea, particularly in summer. Washing is far easier without a lot of hair getting in the way. Between the glans and the base of the penis you might also want to give the shaft a thorough scrubbing for good measure.

And lastly, the third area of focus: the testicles. Dangling between your legs, the testicles are even more prone to catching an unpleasant smell as sweat can accumulate in the folds of skin or in the space between the penis and the testicles. Wash each of them carefully and make sure the perineum (the small patch of skin between the base of the testicles and the anus) is also clean and free of smell.

Penis Exercises – Stretching Without a Warm-Up

Review-No.-1-Penis-Enlargement-GuideBusy people have to find solutions for nearly every problem they encounter. Some men don’t have that much free time during the day and so they are forced to make the best possible use of any spare minute. This is why men who really can’t squeeze an entire penis enlargement routine between office time and house chores usually resort to stretching. There is no point in wasting time, especially since those gains aren’t going to come around by themselves. Stretching only takes half a minute or so and can be performed while at the toilet without raising suspicion.

Stretching is different from jelqing in that its aim is not to force the Corpora Cavernosa to expand and accept more blood, but to stretch the ligaments that keep the penis in place and, thus, to increase the flaccid length of the penis. The ideal way of performing this exercise is, of course, as part of a full-blown routine including the proper warm-up and warm-down phases. Nevertheless, as mentioned above, not every man has the luxury of enough free time during the day to perform the full routine and many have to make do with the little time at their disposal.

The biggest problem with this quick fix type of solution is that stretching without the proper warm-up and warm-down is a risky idea. Can it be done? The answer is: certainly. But you will have to be extra careful about it. Working only with the ligaments is easier than trying to expand the tissue and can be done unobtrusively and with less preliminary preparations. However, you should always take care when stretching without the benefit of a warm-up phase. If the pain grows beyond the comfortable, stop immediately and try to massage the sore spot a bit. Stay away from other exercises until all traces of pain are completely gone.

One thing that you should keep in mind at all times is that stretching is targeted at increasing flaccid length and that’s about all it does for you. If you want to see erect length gains and extra inches of girth, then you will have to use a full routine, complete with the very important warm-up and warm-down phases. While stretching is easy and convenient, the real important gains come from full routines putting stress on ligaments and tissues alike and helping you see the best results. Therefore, I say find the time needed for a full routine and be careful when performing stretches without warming up.

Overcoming Weight Loss Excuses

12Let’s face it, when it comes to losing weight there are so many excuses that we make for ourselves to try and get ourselves out of it. By making excuses, we are stopping ourselves from moving on and becoming healthier. It may seem easier to take the excuse route, but in the long run it will only lead to further disappointment. So how do you get out of those common weight loss excuses?

The Most Common Weight Loss Excuses and How to Overcome Them

When it comes to weight loss excuses there are quite a lot to choose from. Sometimes we do not even realize that we are making excuses for ourselves – it just comes automatically. It would be far easier staying as you are now, than it would be to make an effort to change. However, it is learning to take the harder route that will get you to where you want to be in life so the next time you go to make a weight loss excuse, think about why you are doing it.

Some of the most common excuses include:

  • I haven’t got time to do any exercise
  • I haven’t got time to prepare healthy meals
  • I’m too old to exercise
  • I do not have enough support
  • I do not feel well
  • I am bored with exercising

The list is endless and when you look at it there are some things which just seem like a silly excuse. However, they seem extremely relevant and justifying at the time so just how do you get yourself out of making excuses?

The first thing that you need to do is to find out why you are making excuses. Are they justified or could you do better? If you could do better why are you holding yourself back? Some people are just so afraid of change that they stay in the same habit for as long as they can. Whilst they may not like being overweight, they would prefer to stay that way rather than risk changing and possibly failing. Other people simply do not feel worth the change.

How you think about yourself will affect how you succeed with your weight loss journey. If you do not like yourself, you are more likely to make excuses and set yourself up to fail. So if you do have self esteem issues try and work them out as soon as you can and that way you will be helping yourself to realize how important this change is to you.

Now, one of the most common used excuses is the fact that people just do not have time to exercise. With a busy family life and a hectic work schedule, how can you possibly fit exercise in too? Well, in order to find the answer you need to ask yourself how important you are. Weight loss will affect your life in a positive way and maybe you are not ready for that? Once you realize just how much the weight loss will affect your life, you will realize that you need to make time for it. Do as much as you can each day. Everybody has at least ten minutes so just alternate and do what you can when you can. So, do ten minutes one day and half an hour the next. Before you know it you will start feeling more energetic and exercising will not be as tiring as it first was.

Overall in order to overcome weight loss excuses, you need to first realize why you are making the excuses and you then need to think about how important it is to you. So, stop those excuses today and move on to a happier and healthier you!

If you are finding it hard to make the first steps towards a healthier lifestyle then there is help out there. First of all, you don’t have to lose weight alone. There are hundreds of support groups out there today and being part of a group has been proven to help people reach their weight loss goals. You can join people who are in the same situation as you, who are facing the same daily challengers and know exactly what you are going through. In support groups you will make friends and be given the support and encouragement you need during your weight loss journey.

There are also clinically proven products that are now available to buy over the counter that can aid you with your weight loss. Ideally people need to adopt a healthy lifestyle with plenty of exercise and a balanced diet. However, most people find it very hard to take these first steps. Support groups and clinically proven products can provide the initial support people need to kick start a healthier lifestyle.
