I Need Your Help!
[Vote for my short story here by clicking on the heart underneath this photo!] For all of you who don’t know, I’m on a journey to becoming a professional screenwriter.

wrapmeindreams asked: Right. So. Having a bloody annoying problem right now. My stomach is the HARDEST thing to shift fat from. I'm so keen to get those lovely firm abs, but it's darn impossible.

sunlight-happiness asked: I absolutely love your blog! It's made trying to get healthy SO easy when I always thought I would never be able to do it. On that note though, I have a quick question. I started watching my calorie intake/went to the gym on Wednesday (today's Saturday just fyi). I've cut out sugary foods and junk food and have trying to eat healthy. Between then and today, I've already lost...
