Anonymous: What are some things to eat agave nectar with besides plain yogurt?

I’ve never had it so I don’t really know (and tried looking it up but my search didn’t work out) but you can replace honey with agave nectar. You can have it in tea! Maybe on toast and pancakes/waffles, as well.

Anonymous: Heard of the book 80 10 10 by dr. doug graham?

No but I just looked it up. It looks… well, I’ll be honest, It doesn’t look all that interesting. Raw diets just don’t interest me all that much and like I said, it’s not something I’m into. Some raw, yes. Fully raw, no. And that’s a low fat diet and I love me some fats.

Anonymous: hey could i get the link to your progress blog? i wasnt sure if you said you would hand it out to anons or not..

I do only give it to people non-anon but I guess I could make it public for the night since I have gotten a few anons asking for it before. I haven’t updated it quite a while and I took newer progress ab photos a month or more ago hoping I would have worked hard since then to have an after progress photo and lets just say that my exercise is really lacking right now but I guess I could add those anyway and then post a link to it. Sound good? Okay!

Anonymous: can kale be eaten raw? I once read it was very firm

I’ve never eaten it but yes, it can be eaten raw. Some people use it as a base to salads.

Anonymous: what's your job?

Uhmmm Bakers! haha. 

Anonymous: I never understood the idea of a tumblr crush until I found your blog. You are one of the most caring, wonderful, kind, and inspiring people I've ever known (not that I know you or have met you haha). But thank you so much for being you!

Omg this one of the most wonderful, if not theee most wonderful, message(s) I have ever gotten. Thank you so so much! I think my eyes lit up while I was reading that. I love you so much, anon! I don’t deserve this, or followers like you <3  You deserve two Hazza gifs. I hope they express my love for this and for you! 

Anonymous: Hi I was hoping you could help me. I normally work out every day in some form (walking, yoga, etc) and eat pretty healthy. But these past 2 weeks I've done maybe one workout and been eating TERRIBLY (binge eating mainly). It's just taken a turn for the worse and I feel so hopeless and useless. I just can't get back into the swing of things with my health and fitness. Any advice or help please? I'm really struggling and it's taking a toll on my mental health too. Btw, thanks for being so awesome!

Hello! Hmm.. I say just push yourself into it. When you are going to bed one night, get things ready for going to work out in the morning and go to bed with the mind set that you are going to work out when you wake up. That’s worked for me before. Then if you don’t feel like it, just do it anyway. That is just one workout, and that one could get you back into the groove. I think kicking yourself back into exercise will help you with your eating habits. Just buy all the good foods that you can. If you feel like a binge is coming on, do it on something good. Watermelon, grapes, strawberries, etc. That might help to eliminate the binge habit and get you back on track. Also, lots of fitness blogs! Just look at all of the photos of toned bodies doing workouts and tell yourself that is going to be you.

I really hope this helped. I don’t think I’m all that great at answering these kinda of questions but I try!

Anonymous: I seriously teared up reading your last post. I've been struggling so much lately and I feel like I have no one to talk to and I don't know who to turn to. I don't know if I'll ever work up the courage to message you about my story/problems, but it made me so happy to see how willing you are to listen.

Aw I love you. I know nobody uses formspring anymore, but if you ever want to message me anonymous on there to talk so it doesn’t clog up my blog or the dash and you can still be anon, definitely feel free. I get emails if I get any questions on there. Here’s my page. You don’t have to by shy or nervous to talk to me. I’m not a very judgmental person, especially about things that I have enough understanding about. If you ever do decide that you want to message me, definitely go for it. I would be so happy to hear from you. <3

Anonymous: Do you think yoga has helped you build some muscle? As in your upper body (arms, back, shoulders, etc.)?

Yeah, a bit but not as much as actually working out has…. which is still not very much. Right now I’m in a funk and not really doing any exercise (ugh :/), but when I did yoga regularly, I worked more on my flexibility than anything and would work out for the muscle. 

Anonymous: can you link your progress photos? :) also i have been on an organic vegan diet for a month or two and have been practicing yoga and working out 2-3 times a week, how long do you think it will take to start seeing results? im about 115 pounds.

I cannnnn if you message me non-anon for the link!

I’m not sure what kind of results you would like to be seeing, muscle gain/get more tone or fat loss. Assuming you mean muscle, since you’re not at a high weight, it depends on how long and how hard you work out and what exactly you do when you are doing yoga and working out. It’s all different for everyone, we all have different bodies and body types, so I couldn’t really tell you. I can say that you seem to be doing quite good! Just keep it up and be patient, you will see results. Take progress photos and compare, you will definitely see them more than you would be seeing yourself daily. (:

Anonymous: do you think it's safe to consume truvia? or at least it's better than splenda ?

Yep! Just keep it portioned, of course.

Anonymous: hi how are you ? i want ask if u know show birth or berth yoga show because someone told me this show is good but i can't find on internet

Hello! I am alright I suppose. I have never heard of that show before. You should ask them exactly what it is called and maybe who is the person in it and then it would be much easier to find.

Anonymous: Wow. You're so beautiful. I enjoy reading your blog! (:

Thank you so much! You’re very kind (:

Anonymous: I'd like to lose fat in my legs - how would I go about doing this?

You can not target fat loss in specific area’s by doing any specific thing. A clean, healthy diet and exercise (cardio and weight resistance) is what you need to follow to lose weight. If you would like that in more detail, let me know.
