Anonymous asked: Hey amber! Love your blog. I just have a quick question. Would you ever consider veganism? 80/10/10?
I’ve considered becoming vegan for awhile. Except before it was for the wrong reasons. I wanted to be vegan so I wouldn’t have to eat out, eat junk food, etc. I admire those who stick to a balanced vegan diet, but I know it’d be way to easy for me to start restricting again.
For the 80/10/10, I wouldn’t want to eat just 5 bananas for breakfast or 4lbs of watermelon. I need more variety. I love that it is based on whole raw foods but it’s a diet that is expensive to maintain and unpractical. I would do the 80/10/10 diet for a month or a certain period of time but I definitely could not eat just raw foods.
I think at some point in the future I would like to have a mostly vegan diet. However it wouldn’t be strict and I’d be able to have greek yogurt and ice cream. If you’ve suffered from an eating disorder, the 80/10/10 diet could definitely make you restrict again or relapse.
Anonymous asked: "its summer, ill post more often!" lol yeah im sure. youre so spotty with your posts, obv this blog isnt a priority for you.
I’m sorry I don’t post as much as you’d like me to. I can definitely try to post more. However, I don’t feel the need to post meals I always eat or everything I put in my mouth. So I’ll be posting workouts, more recipes, updates on my life, etc. I’m going to try and make this blog more balanced rather than just focusing on food. I just got a new gym membership and will be posting my workouts regularly so be ready to check my blog more often!
I finally made the link. So far there’s date night ideas, and advice on keeping the conversation going. If you want advice answered on relationships then message me. Or ask me about anything related about food, fitness, working out, staying balanced, then I’ll respond to your message.
The first few dates are filled with awkward moments. But don’t put so much pressure on yourself. If you’re shy and so is the other person, make it a group date. When your friends are around, you’ll feel more comfortable. You can go bowling with a group of friends, or make it a double date. If there’s more than just the two of you, there’s less pressure to completely carry the conversation.
Keep the conversation going by simply asking questions. Get to know them. Ask about their hobbies, their family, if they have pets, what’s their favorite animal, favorite tv shows/movies, their passions, etc. There are also certain dates that allow quiet time like watching a movie. Once the movie is done you can discuss what you thought of it, other movies you like, etc.
Remember not to revel too much during the first few dates. Try to even be vague. It’s better to be mysterious than talk too much. The less you share, the more they’ll think about you and wonder. Of course you won’t always have to be mysterious, but if you really like them you should make it a challenge for them. Eventually when you’re in a relationship then you can be straight forward. Just don’t share your problems or anything too personal during the first 3 dates. Keep it light and fun. Remember that first impressions matter when it comes to dating. Of course there will be awkward moments and it takes time to get to know someone, but stay positive and keep your cool.
