“Is your boyfriend into fitness as well? Where did you meet? Do you have any advice on starting with strength exercises?”
Yes he is! We met through mutual friends at parties.
Just start! Start with what you can do and work at it! It’s not a science, anyone can start!

“In your easter OOTD video, your pants are super cute! I know you said they are from urban outfitters, but i was wondering what brand they were?”
BDG, which I think is just UO’s brand of jeans!
“what are the main things you look at on a nutritional label?”
Calories, Sugar, and Protein mainly! I don’t worry about carbs or sodium that much. Then I again I try to not eat things with a label too often!
“after your breast reduction, how long was it until you were able to start exercising? If I get a breast reduction april 8th, will I be able to exercise and start becoming more athletic in like mid june? thank you xx <3”
Of course! My surgeon knew how hard it was for me to not exercise, so she told me after exactly one month (four weeks from my surgery) that I could start exercising again. So ask your surgeon!
“Love your blog! I had one question though. I have been doing 50-100 squats a day (w/ no added weight, just body weight). I expected my booty to grow, however I feel like it has gotten smaller :( I have been eating healthier and also go on steep uphill hikes 3 days/week and yoga once a week. Do you think it got smaller because I lost fat and now need to still build the muscle?. Any advice on how to make my butt bigger and not smaller? Thanks for your help!”
Yup, you’re probably just loosing excess fat there, but if you keep squatting (if you find that 50-100 is too easy, add weight!!!), you’ll definitely see results! I do recommend adding weight though if you want some serious results.
“Thanks for trying to answer my Jillian Michael question. After a LOT of searching I discovered you're supposed to log most workout structured like that as 'Boot Camp' :D”
Yay, glad you found it!
“Do you happen to know how I'd track Jillian Michaels Body Revolution workouts on Fitocracy?”
No idea, sorry! Maybe just log it as P90x?
“Does your family eat out a lot? mine does and its really hard to find anything healthy that isn't a salad, and I'm kind of getting burnt out from having salads so much.”
Not too, too much! We like to eat out but no more than once or twice a week! We love to cook!
“Surprise beautiful person! Once you get this, you must put it into at least 8 people’s asks (anonymously) who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it is nice to know that someone thinks you’re beautiful inside and out. ♥”
“Hey, I read a post another anon recently asked about a shoulder press. I've just started using the resistance machines at the gym, and the shoulder press I can only do 44lbs! I struggle with that weight for 2 sets of 12 reps. Is that bad?? Btw I'm a male and (please don't laugh) i'm only 5ft tall and weigh about 100lbs.”
That’s not bad at all. When I first started lifting I could hardly curl 5 lbs, and now I curl 15-20. Everyone starts somewhere.
“I was eondering what you can eat after you've worked out?”
Food? Haha, I mean there’s nothing that you can’t eat after a workout… It depends on the workout I guess. Protein after strength and carbs after cardio.
“I'm having a hard time trying to build myself a consistent workout routine. do you have any advice? and when you started working out how did you build yours?”
Find a way to exercise that you like. My mom and I liked roller blading so we lost a lot of weight by doing that alone. It’s super fun and burns a lot of calories because it’s full body. I like to watch TV shows while I do cardio. I hula hoop when watching movies. Just find ways to move that you enjoy.
“Do you put chocolate chips in your oatmeal?”
“So my feet over pronate slightly and I'm looking for new running shoes for over the summer when I'm at home, and I know they say for people who over pronate should buy shoes that have motion control or stability, and I was just wondering how bad would it be if I didn't? Because I've looked at a lot of different shoes that offer stability/motion control and they tend to be a bit more pricey and I just can't afford that much for a pair of shoes.”
Hey, my feet do too haha! I’m sorry, but I’m not really qualified to answer this I don’t think. I’d either ask a running fitblr, or (what’s probably smarter), is to go into your local running shoe store and ask them!
