I'm a 17 year old girl who over a year and a half has lost about 20kg (cause I was quite big) I exercise everyday and eat so healthy! Next weekend my family and I are going camping and I will probably not be able to exercise for 2 or 3 days! Am I going to lose fitness, or the bigger question, put weight on, I've just gotten so far and I'm so happy with the weight I am now being at 58kg! If I eat healthy/small I won't gain weight will I? Your also a big inspiration xx

Thank you so much hun! I definitely do not think you should worry! Even if you gained weight that is not a big deal! JUst have a fun time next weekend! Camping is so much fun though and a great opportunity to go hiking and spend lots of time exercising outdoors! I think you will be fine since you will be exercising a lot and you don’t typically eat too much when you are camping! You can pack healthy snacks & meals! And of course some fun stuff because camping is awesome and food makes it better :D

Generally speaking, how much weight could someone lose in a 30 day span with regular exercise (5-6 days a week) and relatively healthy eating habits? I know everyone is different and there are a lot of other external and internal factors to contribute to that answer. Just curious what you thought was possible :) thanks!

It is healthy to lose 1-2 pounds per week so I would say around 4-8 pounds. But that would be the most! You will be much healthier though if you keep up with healthy eating & working out! It is great for your body & you will feel amazing (:

What are the best detox recipes?

from Anonymous


I do not know much about detoxes- I used to be against the idea of them but I have watched some documentaries recently that seem to say they are beneficial and necessary even to flush out toxins so that your body can start getting the benfits from healthy foods! I will be looking into them this summer & I will defintiely post my findings but for now- do any of my followers know about detoxes?

How do i go from eating lots of cookies, cakes and ice cream per day to just having 1 treat a week? I want to make a lifestyle change & i know babysteps is key but idk where to begin with my terrible sweet tooth.

You don’t necessarily have to cut it down to once per week! I think a great way to start would be switching to healthier desserts 6/7 times per week! Make some banana&oatmeal cookies or banana ice cream! There are plenty of delicious & healthy desserts and I have some on my recipe blog here! Also, any kind of fruit in my opinion makes a delicious dessert so you could try eating more fruit! The natural sugar in fruit is MUCH better for you and it is absolutely yummy!

goingveggieproject:

What’s Going Veggie Project? Going Veggie Project Is a project run by vegetarians / vegans to help everyone get on the path  to becoming vegans, vegetarians, pescetarians, etc. Our blog helps people by providing support and motivation as well as a strong base of facts and information about “going veg.” 
What’s the challenge? Every month we encourage people to transition into vegan / vegetarian / etc - whatever diet is more “veg” than the one you eat now! For example, if you’re an aspiring vegetarian who wants to start out slow and steady, you could try a pescetarian diet, which means you’d eliminate red meats and poultry while still eating eggs, dairy, and seafood. Or if you’re a vegetarian who wants to step it up, try veganism! And if you’re a vegan, maybe you could become a super-vegan by posting tips and recipes on your own blog :)
How do I sign up? Submit an ask or fan mail with the following
The type of diet you want to try
The url you’d like us to post (we make a giant post of all our challengers)
Your email if you would like to communicate with others taking part in the challenge (optional)
We would love for as many of you to sign up as possible! This is a great way to challenge yourself for the new year, even if you do not do it for the entire month! Please let us know if you want to join and let us know if you need any help! Check out our links for recipes and tips as well. :)
Come sign up! If you have more questions, check out the monthly challenge page on our blog. 
The new challenge starts May 1, 2014 so mark your calendars! :) I think all of you should give it a try! Even if you only go veggie for a week or a few days it is still worth a shot! Please reblog to spread the word. Thanks and happy vegging! :)

cheekyhealth’s May Victories Challenge!
You know how excited and motivated we all get from accomplishing those big victories? Like losing a few pounds, fitting into your old jeans, moving up in weight, or like my recent BIG victory, holding a one minute plank? We get caught up in these huge ones so often that we don’t focus on the small victories. Then when the big ones don’t happen for awhile, we get discouraged and lose motivation. Don’t deny it, it happens to us all!
Well, here’s a little challenge for you, lasting ALL month long:
Every single day, post a photo (or even just a text post - that’s totally okay!) about a victory you had that day. If it’s a big victory, then great! If it’s a small victory, then that’s great too! No matter how small, a victory means progress. Even if your victory is getting out of bed or drinking enough water.
Along with this, I will be posting a list of questions for you guys to answer every day so myself and your followers can get to know you! You don’t HAVE to answer them, but I would love to read all about you guys! They will be posted every 7 days, so you’ll have to check the link on my blog for them!
If you’d like me to read and reblog your posts, please tag them either #mayvictories or #cheekyhealth (or both). I will create a link on my blog in my description box with with all the information, as well as your posts and my posts.
Please reblog this post so others can participate, too!
If you have any questions or comments, please leave them in my ask.
Let’s get motivated and help motivate others this May, shall we? :-)

I'm 18. I lost 55 pound last year and I was so proud! This year started, and I have no idea of what happened, but I went absolutely downhill. I am positive I've gained both weight and fat. I am terrified to step on the scale, and I don't fit into the smaller clothes I bought when I got slimmer. Recently, my binging has gotten really bad. Uncontrollable. But, I'm trying to get back to where i was last year. I managed to stop my binging then, and I am determined to stop it again. Praying I can!

Yay hun! I know you can do it! I am so proud of you and how determined you are! You should look at my binge tab for advice & other info that may help you (: don’t worry about stepping on the scale! That number is unimportant so don’t worry about it! Just work to stop the binging so you can develop a healthy relationship with food !
