So I want to start a motivational “progress tracker” for anyone who would like to take part. No matter what your goal (gain, lose, etc.) you can post your progress and receive positive reinforcement.
1. Post a picture of yourself (if you want)
2. State your current weight, and your goal weight for the month
3. At the end of the month, post another picture and state your progress
4. Myself (and hopefully others) will provide you with some positive feedback, encouragement, and motivation to continue achieving your goals!
Since we are almost half way through March, we will start with our goals for the end of this month.
MYSELF - I currently weigh 139 pounds and would like to gain 6 pounds by the end of the month. Goal weight=145
Hope to see more of you involved with this. Let’s achieve our goals together!

Thank you, I needed this :). We can all use a little motivation now and then!
Sorry I haven’t been posting on here or making videos. Been going through a rough patch but things are looking up and I will be updating more. So expect to see more of my face! :-p
So I have some ideas for videos, but I wanted to ask all of you if there is anything specific you would like me to touch on? Please let me know!
Anonymous asked: Hello. I'm a ftm who has been on the verge of being anorexic since I was young and I'm really scared of starting to work out and lose weight. But there's one problem, all the fat that I gain always goes straight for my hips and ass and it really bothers me when I try on men's jeans because they never fit. It just makes me really self conscious and I was just wondering if you have any tips for trying to work out but not lose alot of weight? I'm also a vegetarian.
Working out is not all about losing weight. You can begin a routine that will maintain your current weight, if that is your goal.
I would suggest to start a resistance training routine. If you use a moderate amount of weight and do 12-15 repetitions, you can keep your body lean and healthy at the same time.
Also, focus on doing exercises that target your hips and glutes. This way you can tone those muscle and keep unwanted fat off of those areas. You will also want to begin a cardio routine to keep stored fat off of your hips, glutes, and abdomen.
If you combine both resistance training (3-5 days per week) and a moderate (1-3 days per week) cardio routine, you should be able to prevent weight loss and keep your hips and glutes slim.
Also, make sure you are getting plenty of protein in your diet. Sometimes vegetarian diets lack proper nutrients and protein intake. Some great sources for protein include quinoa, whole grains, beans, legumes, tofu, soy, nuts, seeds, dairy products and protein supplements.
Hope that helps brother.
