A Lil Wednesday Q & A Sesh

Lauryn Evarts talks diet and fitness on Thanksgiving.

Hi, hi.

I know, I know, I’m getting all holiday-ie on you guys.

And between the winter wonderland background & Michael’s overly Christmas sweater in the above Insta, it’s sure making me want to decorate the house like Whoville x a million.

Anyway, here’s another post on ask me anything.

You guys asked, I ( try ) to answer : ).

1.} Reina asked:

What’s your favorite thing about Michael? You guys are so cute!

Thank you ( insert Emoji with hearts in its eye )! My favorite thing: he has a strong sense of integrity.

A big plus: he gets my perverted humor…also, his biceps.

2.} Zo asked:

Hey hey, got any tips on saying no to food/ someone’s cooking without offending them? I find it so hard to say no to people because I’m scared they’ll think I’m being rude! Especially when they’ve gone to a lot of effort. Thanksss : ).

I’m a big believer in nonchalantly saying “thanks but no thanks.” You can read my whole theory on not eating like shit because your friends eat like shit here. Just like people have different beliefs, people have different eating habits. My friends think I’m a psycho but when I go to a dinner party, I come prepared. I’ll bring my favorite appetizer or a Suja just in case. Also, I’m not too shy ( shocker! ) so I’ll insist my girlfriend’s make a meat-free spaghetti or a kale salad #notsorry.

But if you’re weird about blatantly saying no, then just say you’re full. No one can argue with that, I mean, right? If they do argue, tell them their hair looks amazing & “OMFG can they teach you their hair tips?”

Ya, avoidance at its finest.

3.} Megan asked:

I was wondering how your organize/store your jewelry? Do you recommend a cute organizer or have an ideas??

Ummm…best.question.ever.

I LOVE organization. I mean, my car truck is organized, my shower, my drawers, underneath my bed…psycho much?

My favorite jewelry organizers can be found here, here, & here. I love the clear, acrylic ones; they’re chic & timeless.

I also just bought this teal unicorn ring holder…obsessed. xx.

4.} LC asked:

Hey Lauryn! What do you do on days when you just can’t seem to pull yourself out of a slump? On days when you’re feeling down, depressed, or unmotivated, how do you snap out of that unhealthy mindset and back into the land of positivity and productivity? Days when I’m feeling down it’s just so hard to get going… any tips or tricks? Love you girl <3.

Hi! I’ve had my slumpy-lay-on-my-ass-Eeyore-from-Winnie-the-Pooh-kinda days…trust me!

But I’ve learned the way to fix a shitty day ( for me ) is to sweat.

If I sweat, I instantly feel better. Whether it’s a hike, lifting weights, going for run— what-the F-ever, it makes a bad day feel a little bit better.

Other mood-lifters: Pixy, a good book, blogging, baking, spooning, green juice, &/or bitching to my friends. I also try to separate logic from my emotions.

Overall: Working out= good vibes. Sitting in bed= nasty-ass vibes.

Next time you’re feeling low, tell yourself to workout for an hour & then go from there.

5.} Laura asked:

Hey Lauryn, I miss when your blog focused more on different types of workouts- I want specifics girl! What size weights do you use? Free weights, bar, etc…

Hi Laura! My blog has transformed into more of a lifestyle blog. Overall The Skinny Confidential is a lifestyle. Think balance—- how to balance fitness, diet, relationships, health, fashion, beauty, & life in general.

BUT! On that note, I will def add more fitness posts.

For weights: I LOVE weights. I lift heavy weights once a week & lighter weight ( w/ a lot of isometrics ) twice a week. I also use free weights, Kettlebells, weight machines, & the Reformer. All my favorite exercises will be found in TSConf book too.

Basically, I mix it up as much as possible with fitness. I’m not attached to one exercise. I love em’ all.

** If you guys have any more questions ask them below : ).

Sippin’ on Tea & Juice…Day 3!

Lauryn Evarts, fitness blogger, health blogger, and diet blogger talks skinny tips and tricks for weight loss.

Annnnnddd it’s finally day three.

Cha-ching!!

I’m feeling light, awake, & alert. Out of all the days, three is the best because of the accomplished feeling. I like setting my mind to something, staying disciplined, & following through with what the hell I said I was going to do.

Total win.

It’s also kinda nice that I finished moving into my place on day three. I’m definitely feeling less stressed now that the move is over…however, the unpacking & furnishing I have ahead of me is insane.

Oh, & P.S. don’t get mad if this turns into a home decor blog.

Kidding.

Sort of.

Lately all I’ve been doing is immersing myself in home decor. I’m on a freaking rampage. So look out! New hobby alert!

Ok, ok, here’s a recap of day three:

+ By far the easiest day of the cleanse.

+ I have a pregnancy glow, but I’m not pregnant. Rad, huh?

+ I’ve lost five pounds- some is water weight.

+ My energy level is cray, cray. If I felt like this daily I wouldn’t need my AM cup of coffee.

+ Mixed veggies & berries are for din din.

+ I’m scared to eat normal food tomorrow because I feel so good…but I’ll be trying to practice these post cleanse tips.

+ Overall goal: to attain these results.

Anyone else participate in the cleanse? If so, share your experience below!

Happy Wednesday, lovas.
