    Nothing wrong with sharing perspective! I think that sustainability in terms of quality and environment probably deserve the number one focus when it comes to how we source our nutrients, and it's a better argument than the cruelty approach because it focuses on what is our direct responsibility, whereas the mere morality of meat consumption appears to me to be a genuinely unapproachable topic since it's natural order to consume other life forms. The lab meat concept is phenomenal if it all works out properly; it's almost like meat-plants! Instead of using animals, we use cells, just like we use seeds. Pretty cool. In any case, I'm certainly willing to agree that improvements can and should be made regarding our environmental impact, especially when the USA where I live is doing a great job at falling behind from what I can tell when it comes to environmental friendliness in many aspects.

    Yep, I’m in the USA. We definitely fall behind. Personally I don’t think it’s inherently wrong to eat meat, given even in nature there’s a clear food chain. Just hard to guarantee it wasn’t unreasonably mistreated beforehand. Amazingly there are vegans and vegetarians against lab meat, because of the morality of meat as you mention, which astounds me. I can only hope to see the day it works out! Nonetheless glad you took no offense. :)

    I'd say that's the biggest concern purchasing meat; whether or not the creature had an existence that was nothing more than growing food with some level of a conscious. I'd go so far as to say that it could be done well in a manner that celebrates the animal's life if you're buying humanely raised, housed, and slaughtered. It's common in some traditions before eating to be thankful for the food in some manner, of course, and I'm personally a fan of using the Japanese phrase Itadakimasu to invoke the meaning of appreciating the lives of the animals and/or plants you're about to consume that allow for your meal, completely separate from anything religious. In this way, I see it almost like being an organ donor; the life of the donor was to end anyway, and now it can be of benefit to those who remain. I appreciate that the creature will be so beneficial (and potentially very delicious, as a bonus) to me in its death, as opposed to just rotting away. I think you could argue it's far more honorable. Of course it's all assuming, again, that the practice of raising the animal is of a higher than currently-standard quality, but it's not impossible.

    Mine was because of animal cruelty!!! Also this is why I do NOT wear makeup most of it is tested on animals...I just don't really need makeup (I wear the cruelty free kind only on special occasions) and my shampoo and conditioner is cruelty free too xD

    Dann 9,700 steps, 4 miles, 1,470 calories burned today and my night isn't over what a good day :) I ate more chips that I should have but...I had 4 scrambled egg whites, a spicy chicken sandwich from carls jr as my lunch, and a banana and an orange wedge as dinner...so all in all I think it was good day :)

    Unfortunately I feel guilty about the spicy chicken sandwich and the chips but I didn't eat too much calorie wise...oh well I'm human and not perfect we all have our flaws right???

    I’ve never really looked at it in this light and it’s acually an interesting line of thought that I intend to reflect on.

    I respect anyone’s reason to diet they way they please, assuming it’s not an unhealthy disorder type situation of course!
    I don’t wear makeup either Zaphora! I just find the whole thing a hassle anyway! It’s a rare sight to say the least. And I’m partial to my Avedas natural minty shampoo which claim to be animal cruelty free.

    And yes humans have flaws but I would agree you still had a fairly good day overall. From what I’ve seen you seem to be doing pretty great, keep up the good work!

    Thanks...I noticed today when I took my niece out for our almost a mile walk/stroll she wanted her push car (I push she sits there) and it was a fuck ton easier to push than it was 3-5 months prior I was in shittier shape and it was harder on my back then and today it was a breeze we even sprinted a little...worked for me though I was impressed...but yeah my current goal is a healthy BMI...I mean shouldnt we all strive for that? :)

    Awesome yeah i believe it's the bunny on the bottle shows it or some type of triangle...I can't recall...anyways my arms have gotten skinner too so awesome

    I'm gonna make my workout Playlist soon....>:3

    Ah yeah that’s great to hear. I’m super glad things are getting easier as you go and you’re noticing a definite difference.

    Gotta have a workout playlist to get pumped!

    Oh my god I’m jealous of Kylo Ren and that’s the best thing I’ve seen in awhile! Super adorable. Though he looks like he’s misbehaving!

    I’ve never tried out ee’s myself but I’ve seen a couple of theirs that do look interesting. Maybe one day!

    The vibe muzzle thing sounds interesting, I’m extremely sensitive myself when it comes to clit play so I tend to avoid it one on one. Otherwise it’s usally a torture type play thing for me. Which I’m fortunately into.

    Well it’s officially 3am for me and I have to be up in 4 hours. So I should give sleep a try. I’ve enjoyed this conversation though. And maybe I’ll dream of Kylo Ren now lol. :)

    Glad I can share something interesting! This perspective came about when I gained an interest in sushi and did some learning about the native Japanese culture surrounding it.

    Hmm! I know they aleady ordered the bloodtests, but.. I don't know what for exactly. Just did them today, and once I get the call about the results, I'll ask about the fasting insulin levels/possibility of a hormone spurtin' tumor.

    Yes we'd like to know what's going on :D only if your open to sharing the information of course!!!

    So I got a couple things to try out ----
    3 ballerina tea - supposed to be a cleanser or something like that had senna or something like it it's easy to drink and tastesee like water....

    Also got forskolin extract vegan capsules (I have tried these and I actually really liked them and they helped me feel full and I didn't have to eat so much or as often....fuck there were a few times this week though.

    I am going to try the tea once a night for a week and see what happens and have the pills in the day time...

    So gonna start my day tomorrow with water and green tea (unsweetened) and take the pills 2 a day I should be able to make.my window even wider by doing this and see how far I can get without eating (trying the once a day thing) and probably if I do *fail* I'll make either a smoothie or have boiled egg whites (yes I have switched to just the outsides I give the yolks to my corgi who loves them...

    So hopefully I see more results in 2 weeks I'll update this

    Gonna start running tomorrow morning full speed aiming for 5 miles and see where I stop who knows if I can make it lol xD
