Hey Kaylie! I'm a newbie to weights and I've read what you've said about how to pick the right amount of weight, but are you talking free weights or machines or dead lifts or what? I've literally never lifted weights before haha so any info would be great :)

That goes for all weights! Start with weights you can lift with proper form, not the heaviest thing you can pick up.

yeah squats are great but have you ever tried:
side lunges
reverse lunges
donkey kicks
hip raises

there are many ways to get the booty.
mix it up a bit.

BEST WEEKEND EVER—Wanderlust Fest - Squaw Valley 2014

BEST WEEKEND EVER—Wanderlust Fest – Squaw Valley 2014


I cannot even begin to describe the bliss and magic cultivated at this year’s WLSquaw… I truly can’t. But I will try my best.

Thursday, July 17
We actually didn’t have a pass for Thursday. We had Sage (3-day) tickets for Friday, Saturday, & Sunday. But the awesome thing about WL is that you can still have a blast without a full ticket. You can still shop, get free samples, watch performances, and…

Vegan | Days 4-7, and Finishing Thoughts

Vegan | Days 4-7, and Finishing Thoughts


Okay, wow. Sorry for being MIA. I disappeared to Wanderlust Fest (full post coming soon) and I was so busy! Here’s a semi-roundup of how the rest of my One Week of Vegan challenge went.

So I’m going to sum this up as best as I can. For a more detailed post about Wanderlust Fest, click here (link coming soon!).

First off, I want to mention that yes, there is a lack of food here. Wanderlust is…

i follow you on both blogs and this one was on my timeline first. so yeah, the pics you just posted with those god awful looking pants; you've gained weight.

So… You follow me on two blogs yet you dislike me enough to wrongly say I’ve gained weight and critique my FABULOUS pants that I would wear everyday forever and ever? I think you’ve got the problem, buddy, not me. Unfollow and spread kindness instead of being ugly and mean.

whoa youve gained weight

I’m confused because 1) I haven’t posted a photo of myself on here in a long time and 2) I’m actually in the best shape of my life and I’ve never been so fit so you are mistaken and a monkey ass.

Hey, fluoride is really harmful in any amount because of electronegative energy, which is the tendency to draw in electrons, this will distort biological functions that have not evolved to cope with the levels of fluoride they are being exposed to, and unfortunately, all well waters on average contain 500 x more fluoride than surface or rain water, surface and rain waters are what we evolved with for the majority of our evolution, rain water is the same as distilled water, you should drink that.

How often do you do yoga in an average week?

At school I did and hour or more of hot yoga 6-7 days a week. At home since starting my full time internship I hardly do it which sucks. I’ve been instead taking nightly walks with my dog.

I'm struggling with the idea of intuitive eating. Even though it seems like something I'd really like to delve into, the idea of eating intuitively while losing weight doesn't entirely make sense to me. If you're eating when you're hungry and stopping when you're full, that means you'll be eating to satiate the body you currently have, not the body you want, right? Weight loss requires a deficit and I guess I don't see how you can have a deficit if you're always eating until satiated.

You’d be surprised. When you eat intuitively you become more aware of your cravings and hunger. More often than we think we eat when we’re not hungry, and becoming more in tune with your body will help you recognize that. That’s how you lose/gain weight.

Vegan | Days 2 & 3: Being Vegan at Work

Vegan | Days 2 & 3: Being Vegan at Work

I’m grouping days 2 & 3 together because both are work days!

Let’s start with yesterday:

Monday went really well. I started my day with peanut butter toast, coffee and fruit. For lunch I brought a huge sushi bowl—which evidently was not enough food. I was really hungry within the hour because I made my bowl with more veggies and less rice. By 1pm I was ready for a snack so grabbed my coin bag and…

How do you know it's time to add more weight when training? Is it when you can lift a certain load with ease (which means you have to wait and keep using that exact weight until you no longer struggle)? Or just as long as you feel ready to do more?

By the time you’re at the end of your reps (no more than 12-15) you should be DYING to lift that thing. If you get to that twelve rep and you’re feeling it, but not really struggling, then go up a weight, even if that means doing less reps.
