    [–] I am a [21/F] and my ___ [24/M] boyfriend of 3 years, cheated on me and I don't know what to do;text LaikaSol 1 points ago in relationships

    It’s one think if you have been married for 20 years and have a bunch of kids. But girl, you’re 21. Prime years for being free and living your best life. Do not compromise on this. You will be happy again in no time at all.

    [–] What to use for curly hair instead if mousse LaikaSol 2 points ago in HaircareScience

    This is a very complex question. Head to r/curlygirl and ask over there. Wavy/curly hair is a lot different than straight hair.

    [–] Tuesday, 1/15/19 OTF Workout LaikaSol 3 points ago in orangetheory

    I just want to say that I’ve had good and bad partner workouts. The good ones include people who follow the rules. The bad ones are when people park it on one station when they’re the pacer. I NEVER have a problem with someone who is just slow or is a power walker or any number of things we seem to be insecure about. I literally don’t care at all how long it takes you to churn out 0.5 miles or 600 meters or whatever it is. I’m just irritated if I’m dying on the rower and i can see my partner on the tread at 2 miles beyond where he/she was supposed to stop. Or one time I had a pacer who stopped at sat on the floor to rest instead of tagging me out. THOSE are the annoying things.

    Just my two cents on partner workouts.

    Looking forward to tonight. It’s 90s night at my studio and you know those jams are going to be on point.

    [–] Any workout night owls in this sub? LaikaSol 4 points ago in xxfitness

    Nighttime for me too. Tried to do mornings but found myself not as hydrated and I can definitely feel that.

    [–] Park Status LaikaSol 5 points ago in BigBendTX

    Agreed. Just trying to avoid a political argument. ;)

    [–] Park Status LaikaSol 2 points ago in BigBendTX

    Same. We were scheduled to leave on the 22nd of December. Then postponed to January 11th. Sigh. Damn politicians are screwing with my damn vacation.

    [–] [Question] How long did it take to see/ feel results from going paleo? LaikaSol 12 points ago in Paleo

    It takes me about 10 days to de-bloat from my last serving of simple carbs or alcohol. That’s not “real” weight loss but it’s at least 5-7 pounds of water weight for me.

    Then on top of that, you’ll have x pounds of loss from whatever caloric deficit you’ve been maintaining.

    [–] Could this be teak? LaikaSol 10 points ago in midcenturymodern

    I’m no expert but I’d guess it was walnut.

    [–] YSK that more than 40% of people have a vitamin D deficiency, especially in the winter months, which can cause fatigue, depression, pain, and a host of other problems. LaikaSol 8 points ago in YouShouldKnow

    Mine was the lowest my doc had ever seen. 10? Something like that.

    I felt overwhelmed doing anything other than laying quietly. I remember taking a vacation and just wanting to go lay down the whole time. My mood was apathetic pretty much 100% of the time. I had zero energy to do anything. I was only “happy” laying on the couch under a blanket with my eyes closed, not sleeping. And by happy, I mean more like content. It’s all I thought about. And it didn’t matter how much sleep I got.

    Now taking 10,000 IU per day, which is stupid high. But it’s what it takes for my blood levels to be normal.

    If you’re glued to the couch, with a foggy mind and absolute apathy for even the best things in life, you may have a vitamin D deficiency.

    [–] What was your "I cant believe this is happening right now" moment of your life ? LaikaSol 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I inherited a life changing amount of money. Not quit-working-forever amount, but enough to be able to decide the job I wanted, and not the job I needed to pay the bills. Didn’t see it coming. I of course would choose to have the relative back over the money any day of the week. I feel like that goes without saying but I’m saying it anyway.

    [–] Morning Workouts 👎🏻 LaikaSol 1 points ago in xxfitness

    I never found a way to get hydrated enough without being water logged. It is nice to finish half of the workout before you even realize where you are, but they were always rough bc I wasn’t properly hydrated.

    Went back to 7pm and I’m here to stay.

    [–] Engaged/married friends, what do you do with your rings when you lift? LaikaSol 1 points ago in xxfitness

    I wear it. I have ADHD and my ring is an antique and I just can’t risk losing it. I only take it off for long backpacking trips.

    [–] Pretty sure I've found what's been causing my > 3 month flare up. LaikaSol 5 points ago in eczema

    They can say that, but it falls flat scientifically. This would be an easy and large win in small claims court and any landlord who hears the word MOLD should know that and take immediate action to prevent that from happening.

    [–] Pretty sure I've found what's been causing my > 3 month flare up. LaikaSol 4 points ago in eczema

    It can come with you but mold will only grow/thrive with regular and persistent access to water. If you move to a new place without water leaks or indoor condensation issues, you shouldn’t have any problems.

    [–] Pretty sure I've found what's been causing my > 3 month flare up. LaikaSol 11 points ago in eczema

    Your landlord is responsible for fixing this like right now. They are also responsible for paying for somewhere for you to stay until it’s resolved. Also any of your medical expenses as a result. And for sure they should pay for the dehumidifier.

    Mold is no joke and can cause some serious medical conditions.

    [–] Pretty sure I've found what's been causing my > 3 month flare up. LaikaSol 13 points ago in eczema

    Oh man. So, I’m sorry to say, but cleaning it up probably didn’t solve anything. I do some expert witness/litigation work for mold cases in buildings and that dehumidifier may help, but not enough. Are you renting? So sorry. This is not a cheap problem to have. No to even mention the health side effects.

    Feel free to PM me about mold/building questions. I see it ALL the time. Its not pretty.

    Maybe get out of your place for a few days. I’m sure you stirred it all up and there are probably more spores in the air than the baseline (which was high anyway).

    [–] How do I become an actual engineer now when I fucked up in college? LaikaSol 1 points ago in AskEngineers

    Maybe you should consider studying for and taking the fundamentals of engineering exam (FE). It will force you to relearn the material AND you’d get a certification in the end that will help with the job hunt.

    [–] Those who have backpacked since the shutdown, how is it gone? LaikaSol 2 points ago in BigBendTX

    Dang. Ok. I was sort of hoping that people were just backpacking anyway, paying a fine, and just being cool about it. Leave no trace, wildlife safety, etc. And that in the end the park gets paid anyway.
