I’m working on a big August workout plan for you all! I’ve got most of it saved as a Draft, now I just need to do the calendar itself. Expect it tomorrow! :)
Anonymous asked: The reason I asked about the change in cycles is because since I started working out and running a few months ago, I've experienced vaginal dryness and was wondering if exercising could've effected it. Sorry this is awkward :/ Thankfully I have an appointment with my doc soon
em4418: That moment when you’re looking through recipes on the computer and you find a cookie that you really want, but you can’t have it because it’s on the internet, so you just cry. Chelsea snorted at me. All the time. Why can’t I just eat all the delicious food people take pictures of?
Anonymous asked: Could a change in exercise (like starting to work out a lot after not working out at all) and weight loss effect menstrual cycles??
lookivelostweight asked: I don't know where all this drama came from or what exactly it's about but I just wanted to say that I love your blog and it's inspiring me to change myself for the better! Your workouts are really helpful and easy to follow, so thanks for all that you do on this blog :)
Anonymous asked: I was tempted to stop eating, and this blog actually convinced me not to. I think the haters should just stop following if they have a problem.
Anonymous asked: if i do your workout plan for the mon, tues, wed, thurs, fri, sat, sun... is that too much for all in one day?
thevalleyofourheart asked: Your blog is so helpful. I'm trying to lose weight and exercise more. I can't go to the gym and its hard being a teenager and being as busy as I am. I do at least 2 of your workouts every day. Just finished one for the day recently. btw, have you thought about doing a Big Bang Theory work out? :D
nick-carraways asked: Okay, so this hate is really annoying me. When I started following you the thing that I was worried about was that you tagged pictures as "thinspiration" and I don't think that that's a very healthy idea, but then as I kept seeing your posts then I realized that you have a very good idea of what your body can and cannot look like. You're striving to have that perfect...
Anonymous asked: Just wanted to say that I agree with your "haters" and the last bout of "look at how much people love me" posts have inspired me to unfollow. My dashboard will be much healthier (and less cluttered) without girls begging for thigh gaps and this weird defensive drama.
accessorybones asked: i may be late to this, but your blog is far from being pro-ed in any way possible. as someone who actually has an eating disorder, i can say that i follow your blog for the positivity. i'm trying to lean more towards recovery on my dash now as i'm in a bit of a relapse. i've always wanted to be a dancer/ballerina &i love that you're working on becoming a better one....
Anonymous asked: I just started following you, and this is crazy, but people who are hating, fuck off maybe?
accessorybones asked: to the anon asking about dance for theatre auditions, try looking to your local community college. most offer dance(ballet, modern hip hop, jazz etc) as gym classes. i haven't taken one myself, but i've been very interested in the ballet class and often watch the classes as i pass by
Anonymous asked: SO, I've never danced before but I want to at least learn basics for auditions (musical theatre.) What would you suggest to me, a college student, to do without taking lessons? Is there anything online or something that could help/teach me??
Anonymous asked: hi i love your blog well i have been trying to lose weight for about 2 weeks. it hasnt been the easiest but my friends are a great support so i met my friends to work out and they were all wearing cute workout shirts and i came in a t shirt and workout pants. so i recently tried one of your tshirt trnsformations and i really like it so i was wondering if u could post some more or maybe give me...
yoginiplace asked: I just saw someone is labeling your blog as "pro-ana" and i just wanted to say that the idea of that is rediculous. I have been following your blog for a while now and someone who posts things like "your you and that's perfect" and tips about self love to me sounds like the OPPOSITE of a pro eating disorder blog. It might not mean much but I find your blog to be inspiring...
Anonymous asked: Yeah, your blog is one of the best blogs I've found!! Lots of blogs advertise themselves as being about fitness when all they're really about is people with eating disorders not trying to get better, and yours doesn't do that at all :) If anything I would like to say thank-you for being healthy and inspiring people in recovery :)
victorious-victini asked: I don't see what peoples' problems are. I find your blog inspiring and I love your workouts. If people don't like it, there is an unfollow button in the corner of the screen that they may have missed.
madkatydisease-deactivated20130 asked: your blog is fantastic & inspirational <3 ^_^
w3stghost asked: Look, I am recovering from an eating disorder, while trying to maintain a healthy routine and everything. I find your blog very inspiring, and not triggering at all. I see beautiful, healthy dancers. And it is your blog. post whatever you want! But just to the anons, I don't find your blog unhealthy at all. Very inspiring.
Anonymous asked: I don't think I'm quite understanding your message. Based on what you post, you seem to be striving for such a skinny result that you almost look anorexic, but then you post things like "starving for perfection" the song educating about anorexia. I'm confused is all, just getting mixed messages. Is anorexia on your goal weight chart to the right? Because it very well...
Anonymous asked: Please see what others are posting your pictures to: anorexia, bone tight. This is not healthy. It's scary, and you are encouraging anorexia right here. This is serious, and your message seems dangerously skewed. Please watch what you post. I know this is a blog inspiring weight loss, but your pictures also inspire anorexia, and we all know how common it is between dancers. Please stop...
Anonymous asked: Hey, I stumbled across this blog through pinterest on fitness and inspiration and noticed that alot of the pictures you were posting showed "skinny" as the objective, rather than "healthy". Some of the girls in the photos were down right unhealthy-looking skinny, with captions that make them even more disturbing. I just feel I needed to say something, seeming as I know your...

EATING DISORDER RECOVERY
self-content: What it isn’t: constant dieting simply losing or gaining weight becoming addicted to something else papering over the cracks dishonesty guilt trying to achieve perfection What it is: freedom - from shame, guilt, obsession, pressure… confidence finding a true identity seeing your true identity enjoying food balance - some days you will eat too little, or too much, and...
The great thing about yoga is that it gives you a sense of control even when the rest of your life is a mess.
youandiareagangoflosers asked: I just found your blog this week, and I love it. You are brilliant, really.
Anonymous asked: Hi, this may sound really creepy (hence why I've gone on anon) but I look scarily similar to you, only forty pounds heavier. It's a great inspiration to see what would I could look like if I were to lose the weight, so thank you for being so inspiring :)
Anonymous asked: I saw this workout online.. its called a descending ladder workout. You start with 10reps each, then move to 9reps, then 8reps, 7,6, 5... and so on till 1. its 10 jump squats, 10 pushups, 10 sit ups... it you would like to push it a little further, you can add, 10 burpees. you can either do it per workout or per circuit/round. :)

Pro-Ana Expectation vs. Eating Disordered Reality
Expectation: Wake up one day, weigh yourself, and feel extremely happy, accomplished, and satisfied because you hit your "UGW"!
Reality: Wake up, weigh yourself, see that you are now ten pounds less than your original "UGW" and cry because you still see yourself as fat.
Expectation: You will be beautiful, thin, and look like a model naturally.
Reality: You might be thin, your hair will fall out by the handful, your skin will be dry, and your nails will be chipping.
Expectation: You will feel strong and in control when you walk past the kitchen and say "no" to food and "yes" to "Ana".
Reality: You will sit in front of a miniscule amount of food, on the brink of passing out for hours and hours debating whether or not to eat it. Crying, feeling weak, and in fact very out control.
Expectation: All the boys will want you and you will be the skinny friend.
Reality: You will lock yourself in your house and ostracize yourself from society. You will have no friends to be skinny in comparison to and you won't care if the boys want you or not.
Expectation: You will be perfect.
Reality: You will be far from perfect. You will become a number: your weight, your BMI, number of servings, grams of this, ounces of that, number of cups, amount of tablespoons and teaspoons, calories, hours until next allowed "meal", inches, centimeters, pounds, kilos, dress size, pant size. You will be obsessed with the unattainable: happiness and satisfaction.
