I hope to be the shining light in the dark world of thinspo, unhealthy advice and incorrect information. Life is about being happy and loving yourself, and that includes your body. Feed it with the foods it loves, let it run free, treat it to a nice dinner and some wine every now and again and your body will take care of you too. <3

“What are some good ab workouts besides crunches? I am trying to lose my "pouch" and it is taking a while”
-Anonymous

If you’ve got an exercise ball THIS is awesome :)

Also the pouch is more about losing fat that gaining muscle with crunches. Yeah gaining muscle will cause the body to burn more calories than if you had less muscle, but this doesn’t mean you will lose the fat from your stomach. The thought that you could do crunches to lose fat from your stomach is called spot reduction and it’s an urban myth. You can’t pick and choose where your body loses weight.

Good luck love :)

“What foods can replace my usual morning bagel and evening plate of rice? I don't know what to eat that will fill me up like those things. Bread and rice are bad, right?”
-Anonymous

You can get whole grain breads and brown rice. Just make sure on the ingredients list that the first ingredient is whole grains or 100% whole wheat. If it doesn’t say that, chances are it’s probably not. Things to fill you up would have fats or protein. Just make sure they’re the good fats (not saturated or trans). Carbs wont really fill you up for long. They’ll satisfy you, but leave you hungry not much longer.

So things with protein or healthy fats would be baking an egg inside an avocado, hummus and carrots, apple and peanut butter, tuna (or bean for my fellow veggies) salad with mayo and olives, etc. The possibilities are endless!!! :)

“why do u never posts those cool pics that made your blog..YOUR blog?...i still love ur blog n thats what got started n helped me a lot on in starting my journey...but it just aint motivationintohabit anymore :(...i hope u understand what m trying to say”
-Anonymous

I know I know. I’m sorry I really am. I really want to get back into that, but life set in for a while. I’ve been bouncing around different apartments and job hunting, graduation, money and currently looking for my next apartment with my boyfriend. Stress stress and more stress so I put my creative side on hold until I get more stable in my life. I know excuses excuses. But I promise once I get settled, I’ll come out with a lot. I have loads of ideas and photos saved up in my computer, they just aren’t made right now. Not only do I plan on making more photos, but I plan on completely revamping my FAQ, separating them into “nutrition” and “fitness” “etc” FAQs and MAAAAAAYBEEEE a whole new theme and errythang. I have plans I swear. Just not the time or the mental capacity right now.

:(

“HELLO! Huge fan of your blog, it keeps me focused and body positive. I'm having a little trouble gaining muscle bc my metabolism is already above avg and doing cardio revs it up even more so I lose what little butt I have (lol). Should I lift more and keep cardio to a minimum? I eat a clean diet minus dark chocolate and popcorn.”
-Anonymous

For sure. Don’t completely forget cardio because it’s good for heart health, but yeah focus more on weight training than cardio. Lift heavy and less reps. So about 7-10 reps heavy. Check out my FAQ for more info about hypertrophy (muscle gain) :) Also eat more calories. Clean calories, but more if you’re having trouble gaining that could be a factor too.

“Does yoga help build strength?”
-Anonymous

Idk. You tell me. <3

I have never seen my muscles more defined since I’ve been doing yoga.

“I am a big pasta and bread eater, would it be beneficial to limit that from my diet? I feel like these foods are addicting”
-Anonymous

It would be beneficial to limit it for sure. Unless you get whole wheat (and check the label because some breads will say whole wheat but the first ingredient is unbleached white flour… not wheat) The FIRST item on the ingredients list should be whole grain or 100% whole wheat. If it’s not, these foods will act as sugar in your body. They spike your insulin level and then drop them below normal, leaving you hungry again and willing to eat almost anything.

Funny you should mention that the are addicting because they are….. literally. Recent studies have found that foods high in saturated fat and sugar (or in this case foods that act as sugar) literally stimulate the same parts in your brain as heroin, nicotine, alcohol and other addictive substances. You are literally addicted to these foods and you get a sort of weird sense of withdrawal when you don’t eat them yes? You feel lethargic, hungry, sometimes upset and you don’t know why? You feel the need to turn to chocolate, or maybe some chips and salsa (my personal cocaine)?

So in short, yes it would be beneficial to limit white breads and pastas. They cause you to gain weight quicker and act as sugars in the digestive process. Don’t get discouraged if you have a hard time. You are probably literally addicted to these foods. I know I am. Slow and steady wins the race. You may fall off the wagon from time to time, but you will cross that finish line. <3
