And This Is Why Dieting Is Physically And Mentally Impossible For Us

Among the many New Year’s resolutions people make for themselves, losing weight and eating healthy have to be the most common. But if you plan to stick to your diet, be prepared for these challenges…

Good luck. ?

Most of us fail at our diet on New Year’s Day – the very same day we planned our diet!

Yeah, your resolution was to go on a diet, but you know you were still drinking and munching after the clock struck 12. Fail.

Your diet will then continue to go downhill because of El Día De Los Reyes.

A bite of la rosca won’t hurt, right?

If you have a boyfriend or husband that spoils you, then expect to gain a few more pounds on Valentine’s Day.


The tacos are in a heart-shaped tin box. You can’t say no. ?

The more he loves you, the more calories you’ll be gaining.


Hello Valentine’s Day, goodbye diet.

When March comes, St. Patrick’s Day will mess up your diet a little more.


How does anyone ever resist green beer? Temptation everywhere.

It will be even harder if you have friends that like to go out to drink.


Can’t leave your friends hanging, right?

For Cinco de Mayo, you know every single bar will have a special on their bomb margaritas.


Even if you don’t celebrate Cinco de Mayo, nothing tastes better than a big, fresh, low-cost margarita.

Your diet might be safe if you don’t celebrate any of these holidays…but what about every single birthday party you go to?

Cake, alcohol and food… Every. Single. Time. And multiply that by the amount of primos, prima, tíos, tías, abuelas, abuelos, vecinos, padrinos…

Even going to church will mess with your diet.

Because what do you do with your family after church? Eat, eat, annnnd eat.

Every bautizo, wedding and quinceañera will also tear up your diet little by little.

The cake, the dinner and the drinks will taunt you.

The biggest challenge will be every visit to your abuela’s house.?

You know she’ll freak out if she finds out you haven’t had anything to eat or have only had a salad all day.

If your diet hasn’t failed by October, it will hit rock bottom by December. Unless you can handle giving up all the food from Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve…


Mmmmm…

Must… eat…

A Mexican Artist Is Making Pancake Art That’s Too Beautiful To Eat

A Mexican Artist Is Making Pancake Art That’s Too Beautiful To Eat

Social media is where people can show off just about anything they create. This includes art in any and all media, like pancake art. Claudia, the creator behind Nappan Pancake art, is the latest artist watching their art reach the masses.

Claudia, the artist behind Nappan Pancake art, got her start because of the pandemic.

The artist first started to play around with pancake art last spring break when the pandemic forced businesses and schools to close. Claudia wanted to get more creative with her kids’ breakfasts since they were now always at home.

“I started experimenting with making Pancake art,” Claudia recalls to mitú. “At first I only used the color of the natural dough and a little cocoa. At first, I just used the ketchup dispensers and little by little I learned.”

Claudia uses her pancake art to honor some truly iconic people.

Cepillín recently died and the loss was felt throughout the community. He made our lives joyous and fun with his music, especially his birthday song. Some of the creations are done for fans who request to see their faves turned into delicious pancake art.

The artist loves creating the edible works of art.

The journey of becoming a pancake artist has been a fun adventure for Claudia and her children. The more she has practiced, the more she has been able to do.

“Sometimes I scream with excitement and I go to all the members of my house to see it,” Claudia says about her successes. “Other times it’s just a feeling like “disappointment could be better” other times it just breaks or burns and then I just cry but it usually feels very satisfying.”

You can check out all of her creations on TikTok.

Viral Video Of Overworked Texas Dominos Workers Burdened By Snow Storm Goes Viral

Viral Video Of Overworked Texas Dominos Workers Burdened By Snow Storm Goes Viral

Texas’s current power crisis from a devastating storm has disrupted power generation and frozen natural gas pipelines. The is historic storm has driven electric demand higher than the state has ever seen, but it’s not just electric energy being overextended as a result. It’s physical and mental human energy as well.

Recently, an image of two exhausted Domino’s Pizza workers went viral for showing the extreme exhaustion workers are experiencing.

In a post shared to News4sanantonio.com’s Chime In page a user by the name of July DeLuna explained “This Dominos in San Antonio. Working during this crisis. They had a weekend worth of food and it was gone within 4 hours. This team helped those that needed help. These are the essential workers that need recognition. They were the only pizza place open. Every pizza place was closed but dominos stayed open to help those in need.”

Little else is known about the exhausted workers in the viral image but it did rack up over 8K comments within hours of being posted.

“Dominoes better pay them for the shifts they’ll miss while they don’t have any ingredients. With this practical free advertising it’s the least they could do. Otherwise these kind people worked themselves out of already bad hourly pay,” one user commented.

“,As someone who works in the food service industry, the thought of selling out of all product in only four hours and how much work goes in to preparing that much food is unfathomable levels of nightmare fuel,” another noted.

In another response to the image, a Reddit user wrote “I cannot express to you how upsetting it is to be the only food source open during hard times, to still be open and show up to do your job with higher than normal levels of orders, and still get yelled at by management for not having orders out within a window of time.”

Images of overworked and stressed is nothing new of course.

Fast-food workers are often burdened by their field’s daily challenges. In 2020, food industry workers are being forced to endure customer abuse at even higher rates. Last year a TikTok video of a Subway restaurant falling asleep while in the middle of making a sandwich went viral.

“This is actually really sad. I can’t imagine how underslept she is. Not to mention the wage people get paid at Subway… She deserves better,” one TikTok user by the name of Monique Emilia commented at the time. The skincare influencer Hyram also commented writing “Poor thing… Can’t imagine how underslept she is, we’re too hard on service workers.”
