Unisex toilets

Before I start anything, I am not even sure which country we're talking about (I'd guess somewhere in the USA) and what's actually going on there, but I saw some conversations on social networks about this and I formed an opinion. Here it is. As much as I know, they're debating whether toilets should be unisex (I'm gonna call it like that) or separated for either women or men. As we are all about equality, people are saying toilet is a toilet and it doesn't matter who is in it. So, I saw most of people voting for unisex. This is not even a thing in my country, but I'll say I'm against. And I always will be. I think. Why? Because I don't think I would feel comfortable with men in the bathroom. I don't have anything against men, but I feel more comfortable with women who I know have all the same body parts as I do. Also, it's less likely that a woman will attack me in the toilet. This is totally generalizing all men everywhere, but I really hope you'll get this in the right way. It's a thing here that if the women's toilet is occupied (and it always is), some girls go to men's toilet (if no one is there). And I've seen only few men in my life going into women's toilet. And now you'll say that one thing is OK and the other isn't, but it's not about that. The point here is just that most women take more time in the bathroom so the lines are endless. And sometimes you just don't have the time to wait. I would be OK with a man in women's toilet if there was an "emergency". The more I'm thinking about it now, the more I think why the hell would I mind men in the toilet, but I just would. I'd like to hear men's opinion on this. Furthermore, periods. I'm almost embarrassed (I know I shouldn't be) for other women knowing that I have period, but I would just die if I had to throw my lady pad in the trash in front of an unknown guy. And I probably will never see those people again and they do know we have periods, but I'm like that. And I know I can't be the only one. Also, guys are guys, and I'm sure they have some things they don't won't to share in front of women. Even if they're just talking about some hot girl they've just seen. You know? It's kinda hard for me to write all of this down to have sense, but I hope I managed to explain myself. Me being embarrassed and weirded out by some stuff is just me.

What's your opinion?
Such a happy toilet :D

Take her swimming on the first date!

Read till the end before you judge this.
Since I also consider myself a beauty blogger (I do write another blog) and I love watching those make-up tutorials on YouTube, I've been seeing how make-up can change a person, enhance the beauty and clear all the "bad" stuff off of somebody's face. There is this one youtuber in particular (which I'm not going to name because that would be unnecessary) who always surprises me how she makes a huge difference with only make-up. She is professional make-up artist, if that counts for anything. Anyhow, you've heard before about this line and how guys (let's say guys) always comment about taking a girl swimming for a first date because she's wearing loads of make-up. This youtuber I mentioned did a whole tutorial on waterproof make-up and she did go swimming so that plan would fail, but most of "ordinary" girls don't have so expensive and high-quality make-up so most of it would probably go down the drain (get it? OK, lame.) Make-up is here so we would cover up everything we don't like and highlight all the good parts and make ourselves feel and look great. And that's amazing. Also, all people have the right to do whatever they want with make-up and I have to honest, I kinda admire people who do such wonders with it. But (!) (you knew this was coming), make-up is false presentation. Most of the times you can figure out how the person looks underneath it all, but sometimes it's a huge surprise. When this girl, the youtuber, took off her make-up for the first time (that I saw it) I was so surprised I was actually rewinding and going few seconds back and few seconds forth to see what was actually happening there. I'm talking about such a huge transformation that I couldn't believe that was the same person. The effect was even bigger because she was (and still is) always wearing fake hair and extensions and this was the first time I saw the real her. Not to get me wrong, I'm not saying she is ugly nor pretty, I'm saying the difference is huge! As much as we all love to say the inner beauty counts and physical appearance is not important, it is the first thing you see in a person and that's basically what makes you want to interact in any way. So, false presentation like this could be a huge deal breaker. I honestly can't say how I would react, but I think I would just be disappointed. And, as rude as it sounds, it's not what I've signed up for. Again, people can do whatever they want with make-up, but I think they shouldn't be that surprised that other people are surprised or disappointed or turned off or anything. They should be aware of the make-up they're wearing and know that's not really their face.

What's your opinion on this? You agree? You don't? I'd love to hear it. Long descriptive comments are preferred :)

MWL - Tired and sick after workout?

Hi. Intro post about this is here, and all others are under the label "My weight loss".
I talked about including workouts into my diet routine in my previous post (see here). What I didn't mention were the feelings I got after working out. You see all these pictures and posts about how working out is great and you feel amazing afterwards and it's the ultimate goal to feel like that. Well, not true! I just finished my workout for today so it's a perfect time to tell you everything exactly how it is. Although I've been working out every day for a month now and I walk a lot and ride a bike, my condition is nowhere near good. Not yet. So... How do I feel? I feel awful. I'm tired. My stomach hurts and I feel like I'm going to puke. Also, I'm all sweaty. Let's go in some order. Being tired. Everybody says you feel like running, going somewhere or something like that after working out. That's why you're supposed to do it in the morning. I work out in the evening, so that may be the reason, but there's one more. As you workout, your body loses oxygen and you should replace it pretty fast not to feel tired. As I don't have the power to do so, due to lack of condition, I am tired. And I mean sleepy. I could go straight to bed right now. It passes after some time, but that's the first feeling I have. I yawn during workouts. So... OK, next is feeling sick. If you ever watched any military movie, you'll see rookies doing some exercises and their commanders pushing them to their limits. Once the limit is reached, they faint or puke. Your organism is not used to this much movement and pressure so it has its own defense mechanism. I especially feel like this after my ab workouts because there's so much tension in my abdomen area. This will also calm down in some time, but, again, that's my first feeling. At first I was pretty worried about all these, but I think this is all pretty normal and common when starting something like this.
Sure, most of this passes with a good shower, but you have to get to the bathroom while feeling like crap... Not to discourage you, but you may experience this and I want you to be prepared.
Have in mind I'm not a trainer or fitness specialist or anything like that. I'm just telling you how I feel and what I think about all of this. If you feel that it's needed, go visit licensed trainer or a doctor. Don't mess with your health.

What are your experiences with workouts? Or feelings after them?
