Those are always taken/crowded. How do you deal with it personally? Or does it not bother you?

Well how do you go to the bathroom at your gym?! Maybe you can just wait in line until the next stall becomes available?

It doesn’t bother me personally, the gym I went to in Belgium had showers where everyone just kinda showered together. There should definitelyyyy be some way for you to change in a stall though, and just try not to be super duper self conscious about it, I doubt the amount of people that you think are looking at you is as many as you think it is.

I hate changing in the locker room, I feel like everyone is watching me all the time bc I have to change my bra and underwear too since I workout before a full day of work.

Well if it makes you uncomfortable, can’t you just change in a bathroom stall, and then put the clothes you changed out of in a locker after you’re done?

Okay when you go to the gym people have gym bags... I don't, I just take a water bottle and a small towel. So do you take a gym bag? What's in it?

I do! I wear street shoes in to the gym, and then change into my gym shoes at the gym, so inside my gym back I have:

-gym shoes

-headphones 

-water bottle

-deodorant

-I usually have an extra sports bra / shirt / pair of shorts, since I work at the gym, so this way, if I get too sweaty or just feel like changing after my workout, I can :)

-I have wrist wraps, but I was only using those for benching after I injured my wrist on deads a few months ago. I rarely use them though because I don’t want to have to rely on equipment. I hate having to rely on things, I’d rather just have my wrists have to adapt and be stronger.

Yeah, that’s pretty much it, nothing too too exciting, I do think it would be cool to have a polar watch some day though, just to see my heart rate and how many cals I am burning and what not, and sometimes I will bring a snack, but nothing too high maintenance! :)

Hey Sam! I worked out a lot in martial arts but since stopping that I've lost a lot of muscle and I'm looking at getting it back. What are some good ways for getting into running for beginners and getting good at crunches and pull ups since I may be joining the Air Force next year Thank you!

All of my runnings tips are here:

And the Air Force has a recommended workout training schedule here:

Good luck! :D You can get right back at it again, you just need to start, be patient, and be dedicated! You’ve got this :)

How would you know that your soulmate is in your town, on your street but you guys never met yet? You both have tumblr but you don't follow each other? He can be the complete douche with a heart, he could be the guy of your dreams that is perfect for you or he's that shy guy in your classroom who looks at you like your his world but you never see him. Love is blind to everyone, would you break the blindness to find love.

This made me think a lot. I waver between “everything happens for a reason” and we meet everyone we are supposed to meet, because they all somehow make an impact on our lives and change us in some way, or I think “yeah, maybe everyone has a soul mate, but maybe not everyone meets their soul mate.” Like maybe the PERFECT person for you was already born and died 100 years ago, but you will never meet them, or maybe they live halfway across the world and you both get married to other people and live okay lives, with mediocre marriages, but together you could have been something great. Who knows? I don’t know. I think it’s fun to toy around with though :)

(describing you to someone who don't know you) Sam- (Pr. n) (age 17) a pretty, strong girl who likes to lift the weights and peoples spirits. she might come off a little narcissistic...but don't we need more people who love themselves in this world? yeah we do. so go be friends with her or follow her or whatever....even if you're not into fitness you won't regret it.

Awww “lift weights and peoples’ spirits”, that’s such a great line :) I am not a huge fan of the word narcissistic, I mean, I think it has a tone of self obsession and arrogance. I am not arrogant or anything, I still have a longggg way to go and loads of room for improvement, but I think I just come across as really confident on here because I WANT to. I don’t want to post “I look bloated as fuck today I hate my body” evennnn if I might feel like that at that moment, because it’s a lot more fun to focus on things like “GUYS LOOK I’M GETTING A VEIN” and then I’m inspired to go get more veins, jafeel? I honestly don’t talk/brag/show off in real life, I think it’s just all the selfies with positive captions and so on here :) thanks for the description though, it’s sweet :)

I don't know what to do because i have been up since two am and went to bed at 10 pm so now at 8:39 am i am really tired but don't want to sleep all day and mess up my sleeping pattern for school

Stay up all day, and then go to sleep early tonight, maybe around 9pm, you will definitely be tired enough to fall asleep by then, and you will get more sleep than you usually do and get back on track :)

Whenever I go to Europe, I make sure I never sleep during the day, even if it feels like nighttime for me, and wait until it is nighttime over there, and it helps me adjust to the time difference soooo much better! Just a tip :)
