Hiya, a question unrelated to fitness: I went on a date with him this guy and recently I asked him to a party and he said he was busy. I worry he's not interested anymore as he texts me less and does not overly provide convo when we do. And less flirty. Anyway I asked if he'd want to go out again and he said yes. So confused. Would it be completely wrong to ask 'are you even interested', I hate games. Never dated, bro.
I wouldn’t ask him “are you even interested”, it will only make him less interested. And no matter what his response is, it doesn’t matter - pay attention to actions, not words. If he doesn’t act interested, he’s probably not. I would ask him out/go out with him one more time, and if he still never initiates contact after that, move on. He’s not into you.
is there any diffierence between dried fruit or fresh fruit? like in nutrition?
Dried is often higher in sugar, which is used to preserve the fruit. Look for no sugar added/freeze dried or stick to fresh/frozen.
First of all, you rock! :D But I have two questions. Firstly, what are healthy snacks besides almonds and other nuts? And secondly, my knees don't allow me to do squats/lunges and some other exercises meant for thights, so I am pretty sad, because I would really like to tone my thights. Thank you again and you inspire me so so much!!!
Thank u thank u! Some snack ideas:
- Fruit - bananas, apples, berries, dried fruit like dates or apricots
- Vegetables - baby carrots, sliced cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, celery sticks, kale chips
- Wheat toast or crackers
- Yogurt or skim cheese
And you can still tone up with exercises that are easy on the knees - try walking, hiking, cycling, and swimming to burn fat, and a Pilates or low impact workout to target thighs.
Are you a vegetarian? When you post about what you eat there never seems to be meat in there... Just wondering, cos I became vegetarian a few months ago and am pretty desperate for some meal inspiration, as I have found that there are only so many lentils and chickpeas that you can eat. By the way, you are really cool. If this was real life we would totally be friends, FYI
No, I just really like vegetables. Some favorite veg recipes:
A quick google search will bring you many more ideas. Happy eats, friend
Hi Love your blog. So I have this problem called "no self control" I like eating healthy foods but rarely do so, I guess its because my mother does the food shopping at my house for my younger siblings and its all chips and fatty foods for dinner... so I just give in. Second problem lol, my legs are pretty thin nice bum but my stomach is just fat and chubby and ew idk what to do or where to start :(
Self control is built through practice - you are responsible for what you eat, no one else. Talk to your mom and discuss healthier options. Suggest recipes, cook or go food shopping together - take initiative to change your lifestyle, and you might influence your entire family. This is the first step to solving your second problem of stomach fat - eating healthy regulates metabolism and fat burning, be sure to include foods such as whole grains, citrus fruits, and lean protein. Also exercise regularly with daily cardio and strength trainin - see this post for various ab workouts.
i remember you posting something about soy milk vs. almond milk and health benefits or cons to both. I was wondering if you could post that again please!
I think I know what you’re talking about but I can’t find that post, one of these instead:
Almond vs. soy vs. hemp vs. rice
Almond vs. soy
what do you think is the right amount of carbs to have each day?
