Anonymous asked: I have this problem when I sleep I can almost never sleep through the night. I can get maybe 1-3 hours of uninterrupted sleep before I end up tossing and turning all night or waking up at least once every hour until I deem it appropriate to get up for the day. I think I've read you say something about having insomnia before so I'm just wondering if you have any tips or tricks to get a...
Anonymous asked: About the anon with the fear of intimacy, I was literally thinking the same thing this morning! For me, it's not a sheltered life thing; no one's ever liked me before. I'm 20, overweight and a nervous recluse so if, in that one-in-a-million chance, someone actually wants to date me, I'd be screwed.
Anonymous asked: How do can I get over my irrational fear of being intimate with someone? I really want to be close to someone but the thought of actually doing it whether its just a kiss or a hug I get terrified for some unknown reason. (im a girl btw) Could it be because I was sheltered for years (Christian, 'you cant touch boys, you cant think or know about sex, etc) so now Im older it scares me for an...

Anonymous asked: Who is Zero?
Anonymous asked: Do you have a philosophy that you generally live by, and if so, what is it?
Anonymous asked: How old is Zero now?
You should adopt a dog
You can get them as little tiny babies and make them your forever friend. Once upon a time, Zero was tiny and not quite so crazy. We took him in without knowing how he’d be at all, and he’s the sweetest, most affectionate dog who has never bitten, just recently learned how to bark, and wants to snuggle all day. Adopt a forever friend!

A trainer at the gym just told me about a self-defense class. At first I thought he was just advertising this new class, so I was like, ‘okay, cool. I mean I’m probably going to toss this flyer in the trash…’ Then he added in, ‘You’re so small and pretty, and it’s dangerous out there for women.’ I know he wasn’t intending to be offensive, but...

Anonymous asked: I'm confused. This guy and I, who are good friends, made out twice. The 1st time we said no attachment to each other. However, after the 2nd time, I thought he liked him, due to how he would say he misses me, cares for me, snuggled a lot, talked a lot, and wanted to see me so badly. I didn't have any problem with this, until after the second time, in which I realized I was having...
So many people are asking about college/dorm workouts and diets, so I guess that means my lovely college aged followers will all be starting new semesters soon. I’m probably just going to do a video for a full body dorm workout, and a video to go over a common meal plan/cafeteria foods and what to do with them. Yes?

I know I’ve been a little MIA, but I’ve been with my parents and family for Christmas. My mother is adorable and bought me a pink sports bra, yoga pants, shorts, and track jacket, while B hunted down a purple shaker/blender bottle.

Anonymous asked: At work (fast food) my shifts often start at 3 and, on some days, I'd be working until 11. For a person who hasn't worked out since high school, is it better to exercise before or after work? (I stay up till 2 am normally, so late-night is still an option)

bibimbop-salafi-deactivated2013 asked: On gaining weight. You can start taking protein supplements or powder. Most one scoops of protein powder has about 52 grams of it in there. A high carb, high protein diet will help you gain muscle weight (if you're working out, of course). I'd stay away from creatine because I've seen body builders lose muscle mass if they stop working out for a period of time.
Anonymous asked: to the anon asking about facial hair removal: i don't have so many, but they are really really dark because i have almost black hair. i remove them with a kind of mousse and spatula (i lack the english word here), that's quite easy and doesn't hurt. you have to do it like every two weeks i guess (could be more often, depends on how quickly they grow back), but it works really well.
