  1. thank you so so much. you have no idea that you replying and motivating me means to me. thank you to you too! I am trying to be focused and determined. You replying makes me more determined because someone also believes in me. Thank you!

  2. thank you so so much. you have no idea that you replying and motivating me means to me. thank you! I will check it out! Thank you again!

  3. Hy Cassey, i love all the workouts, especially those fore thighs and lean legs. I have two small children and with your videos is so much easier and fun to exercise.

  4. What’s the difference between drinking the infused water and drinking the same as a smoothie?

  5. No, you need to stay focused, and determind girl! YOU WILL GET THERE! You just gotta believe! I know it sounds stupid but you must stay motivated! Look at pictures of girls with abbs for instance, then strive for them! Plus try eating super healthy too, thats the most important part out of it all.

    Hi Kath. First of all dont let anything people say get to your mind, you are beautiful in your own way, dont let their comments ruin your motivation! Keep going.
    Secondly you can check out Cassey’s new video, it is exactly about the problem you descibed.
    Love Frederikke.

  7. Hi.
    I just need some advice and I thought I can post here because I have no one to talk about it. I have been doing calorie counts and exercising everyday and I can’t seem to shed any weight. It’s been almost 2-3 weeks already. The thing is I still want to continue but then my brother and cousin started saying:
    -“Oh, where’s the difference? You’ve been doing that for weeks now.”
    -“You’re still fat.”
    -“I really can’t see the difference”
    It’s teasing but it really got to me. It is true that I have been doing this for weeks now and there is still no difference. I know this should motivate me but it gave the opposite effect. I makes me want to stop and give up. I just hope some of you can give me some advice. Thanks!

  8. Cassey! You’re my favorite. I just subscribed to the monthly calender and I’m so excited. As a college freshman, I need all the help I can get with losing weight, and I love your attitude and motivation! Thanks for this opportunity. I can’t wait to get started :)

  9. Hey Cassey!
    I love everything your doing and can’t wait to join in. Was wondering the app on android will there be one for window phone since I have changed phone I miss having the app and reading on everyone success and motivation. Plus having the recipes there quick and easy for shopping.

    Thank you and hope to hear back.
    Lots of love from Australia

  10. that’s so cool! what diet did you do tho? because I’m having a problem with shedding those pounds. I do the exercise but I can’t shed the weight. Although I can feel myself getting stronger. I just can’t lose those pounds. Thanks!

  11. hi cassey i love love love your blog i found your videos on youtube and i fell in love with it i saw that you had a fit journal and i love but i want to get one but i can’t because you said that you will give out 8 of them on 11th november and now their all gone anyway i love your workouts i lost 8 pounds in a week

  12. A question one of my friends ask me was that do you know how many percentages of the calories are retained after a purge? Does it depend on the type of food eaten or rather the timing after the meal? I am just curious. Please advise. Thank you.

  13. Hey Cassey I just discovered your awesomeness and you got me inspired to lose weight again. I was fit before but over time a lot of things happen and so now I want to go back to having a flat stomach. So i just started the beginners workout calendar and the 30 day ab challenge and I have a question, should i only be doing the beginners workout calendar and next month do the ab challenge or can i do it both and also when i do the roll up my legs won’t stay down so how do i fix that? I just want to say thank you for being an inspiration to me and i hope you will always have a great day because you affect so many peoples lives to be great. ^^

    Thanks, Jenn

  14. Hey Cassey, Love your videos feeling sooo strong right now! :) ,but I’m really struggling to straighten my legs and feel pain at the backs of my knees when I try. Are there any stretches that could help me do this? Thank you!!! :)

  19. Hi Cassey!
    Your blogs are amazing! Love the workouts and thank you so much for even making a workout schedule for us to follow. I was wondering, is there a specific set of moves that can tackle the inner knee cause mine looks really bad with jeans on and I really hope I can get rid of it soon! Once again, than you so much for all of the videos and advice (: I promise to work hard!

  20. Even though i am not Cassey, u can start with 3 times a week

  21. Hey :)

  22. Hi Cassey!
    I need some help! I’ve read so much stuff about how much exercise is needed per week: some people say three times a week, some people say one hour per day. How much is needed to get a flat stomach?

  23. Hey Cassey,
    I love Blogilates but stopped due to some serious discouragement. I realized I was trying to get fit for the wrong reasons, to make people close to me stop picking at my weight instead of working out for my bettermentor happiness. Now, I feel ready to go on the Blogilates fitness journey again but this time, I’m doing it for me. How would I reactivate the emails I used to receieve?

  24. Hi! There is a vegan plan in the Meal Plan section above..I m vegan but I haven’t tried it yet!
    If you do, let me know how you find it!

    Xx

  26. Hi Cassey! I absolutely love your videos and work out calendars! You’re amazing! But I was wondering about your meal plans. I’m a vegetarian and I know you have some vegan things but do you happen to have an actual meal plan for vegans/vegetarians? I would love if you could get back to me! Thank you!!

  27. Hi Cassey!
    I was wondering if you could show me a really good day by day eating schedule, but the only problem is everything has to be gluten-free. Are there any healthy recipes or lower ab sliming foods you know of?
    Thanks!

  28. I already put my email to bet started but I nevered got the secret password for the calender and I really want to get fit for halloween

  29. Hey Cassey! Received my fit journal and it is awesome but you know that already, lol!!! Was just curious to what I am to write for the Monday thru Sunday squares that are on the beginning of the week pages? The rest of it is self explaining but not for sure about those pages. Please help, thanks:)

  30. hey amber! are you eating enough healthy food during the day? also can you only keep healthy food in your home that way if you want to binge eat all you have is fruits and veggies to munch on? try not to be so hard on yourself, it takes time for our bodies to adapt to change and always keep trying. also try making a faux lemonade in the evening to sip on- lemon juice ( to your taste), water, and stevia.

  31. Hi.
    I need some help and I don’t know who else to talk to or where I should even post this. I think I might have a problem with binge eating. I follow the blogilates calandar and try to eat healthy but something inside me just wants to eat everything I see. I can eat healthy throughout the day but I get so stressed out and start to eat everything and anything I see in my path. After an “episode” I feel ugly and depressed. I just don’t know where else to turn. Please help.

  32. Hi cassey

    I have been following you calendar the entire month of August and I have shaved off my sattle bags!!!! yay! I feel the muscle in my legs and arms but my stomach is a major issue. Even when I was younger and in shape my abs were my hardest to tone. I decided to follow your meal plan. I am having trouble on the web site downloading the week 1 the page keeps telling me error. what do I do? I really want to follow it to the Tee since it is the first day of the month. Also, your work outs are intense and I sometimes cant keep up and stop and rest for a minute and my lower back is killing me. Does this mean I am doing the movement wrong?

  33. Hey! I only recently found blogilates but I LOVE IT!!! I’ve tried to follow the August calender but its really hard for me sometimes cause of school and dance practices. I fell kinda bad lol. I am trying to gain arm muscle and was wondering what the best videos for biceps are? I’ve been doing the Victoria Secert Arms and the I want You Back Arms challenge.

  34. the 12 week meal plane should have been sent to your email account and then you would have to print it. that’s how I got mine. it does not come with the package it goes to your email account

  35. Anne-Marie says:

    Hi Casey!
    on June 26th I ordered items HW_D3BE8495 Blogilates Fit Journal and HW_4C0895FB 12 Week Meal Plan for my daughter and I. She wanted to get fit before school started and I was gonna help her. :-) The order came in on july 14 but without the 12 Week Meal Plan. We thought to give it time to arrive maybe for some reason it wasn’t in stock. But we are now August 17th and we still haven’t received anything. School starts in one week and we don’t have our meal plan yet. :-( Could you please give me an update on the situation. Thank you for caring. Anne-Marie

  36. Hi Cassey :D!

    So happy to have found you! You have inspired me so much so become healthier and fitter !!

    I was wondering if you could help me with how to go about the beginners calender. I starting the Beginners Calender and I am into my 3rd day, and was wondering when you’ve finished the routine that has put in the plan for the day, do you repeat this workout again on the same day ( if so how many roughly?) or is doing the routine once enough ?

    The only other form of excising I do is going on walks with my dog which can range from 30 minuets to an hour. I am 5″6 and I weigh 138lbs/63kg trying to lose 8lbs and generally tone my body.

    Hope you can help me!

    Hey Cassey,

    I just watched your video, The Story of BODYPOP, and I just wanted to share that I am going through with what you had to deal with in the past. I’m 19 and my dream is to be a grapic designer. However, my parents are still uncomfortable with me wanting to be in the arts. They shot my dream down pretty harshly. The funny thing is that today I was debating whether if being a grapic designer was a good idea, but then I saw your video pop up on my feed (right at that instant)and inspired me to not question what I love to do. I would just like to thank you for sharing that story. I feel that it lead me down the right direction when I needed guiding the most. Thank you, it is really nice to know that you were able to do what you wanted because of your passion and drive. Thank you!

    Jacquelyn
    P.S. You can call me Jacky x3 haha

  38. Hey Cassey!

    I love your recipe videos! Could you make a video about ways to prepare tofu? That would be awesome!

    Thanks,
    Sydney

  39. Hi Cassey!!

    I need some advice.
    I’m starting college in less than two weeks, and I’m really worried about my diet and eating options. I’m scared that the meal plan I was required to pay for won’t have many healthy eating options, but I’ve been working really hard on eating clean and working out as much as possible. I have a really limited budget as far as grocery shopping and eating out because I’m already on the meal plan, but I’m super afraid of the infamous Freshman Fifteen. I’m afraid I’ll get too busy and just give up!
    I will have a small fridge in my dorm I’m sharing with my roommate, so I can refridgerate some foods. I can’t follow a meal plan because I can’t afford to shop for all my foods, just supplement what I can. Any advice for staples to keep in my room?

  40. Hey Cassey!!! I need some advice here(well, I guess tht is what ur corner is for). It’s Sunday August the 3rd today. On Friday, early in the morning I am leaving to drive from near Toronto to New York. I am staying there for a few days, going to Cape Cod for a few days and either on the 15th or the 16th I am coming home. I can’t really workout on my trip cuz we r busy exploring and also I have a family of seven(including myself) and we r sharing a hotel room in New York and a little beach house in Cape Cod, so idk bout Cape Cod but there might not be any working out in New York. There is a lot of walking involved, which is good, but while on vacation, nobody really pays attention to eating clean. I want to get as much working out as possible this week before I leave but idk wat to do THERE. Advice plz?

  41. Hi Cassey!

    On Monday (7/28) I did your “Simply Slimming Circuit”. I was a little sore yesterday so I did cardio since I’m only lifting every other day. Do you have any suggestions on what lifting routine would be good for today since I’m back to a lifting day? I need to work that lactic acid out because today I am more sore than yesterday…please help!!

    Thanks!
    Lesley

    P.S. I absolutely lover your site/recipes/workout routines. I’m addicted!

  42. Hi Cassey!!
    I have done blogilates for about a week now and I am loving it! I am feeling better about my body workout after workout and I can’t wait to finish the beginners calender so I can look hot and toned for the first day of school (;
    I have been noticing that I am stronger in one side of my body than the other, is there anything specifically I can do to get them to have equal strength? I have tried doing extra reps on one side but that isn’t helping.

    You are awesome, thank you for such a cool blog! <3

  43. saoirse says:

    Hi Cassey,
    I’m 15 years old and have been working with Blogilates since February. I recently bought a dress for my cousins wedding that I thought was a size 18 but it was actually a 14. I really love this dress and cant get it in a size 18 anywhere, I was wondering how I could lose the fat around my upper back quickly so I can have a chance of fitting into the dress. The wedding is in October so I have about 2 months to slim down. Can you please help me?
    Thank you,
    Saoirse
    :)

  44. Hey Cassie!

    I downloaded your app on my iphone and have been using your videos for a few months now. They are wonderful!! I have a 7-month-old son and was desperate to lose the baby weight and I am only 10 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight!! I just have one question, how can I get the lines by my hip bones back??

    Thank you so much for what you do!!

    <3 Dana

  45. Hey Cassie!
    I’m trying to lose some added weight right now and I just had a question about protein shakes. Are protein shakes something I should incorporate in my diet for losing weight or is this only after you lose weight and want to add or build up your muscle(s)?
    Thank you! I am in love with your blog and youtube videos. Your like my best friend workout buddy that keeps me going and won’t let me quit!
    Luv Ya!
    Amy xoxo

  46. Hello Cassey,
    I love your blog and the workouts.You are truly a God sent.i just started and I already love how I feel about my body.
    Thank you! Love all the way from Nigeria xoxo

  47. Megan Crehan says:

    Hi Cassey, I love your workouts! I was wondering if you had any recommendations for workouts that don’t put too much strain on the neck or back? I was in a car accident a few weeks ago and I haven’t been able to run since, which is annoying as I was a keen cross country and track runner before hand? I don’t eat as well as I should but want to change that and was also wondering if you could recommend any ways to stay lean and fit without hurting the neck or back?
    hope you can help!

  48. Jeanette says:

    Thank you for all the free stuff, thank you for taking your time and effort to put all this together. It is now up to us to get fit!! This is my first time trying this, hope it works for me… I’m truly motivated this time!! I really want to get fit!! Thanks again!!

  49. Charlie says:

    Hey, I was like that as well. So i started doing squats going up by five each day for three days with a rest in between, my thighs are now toned, slimmed down and they don’t jiggle at all when I walk. I also combined this with Cassey’s beach series butt workout, and I’ve seen amazing results :) hope this helps :)

  50. Charlie says:

    Hey Cassey!!
    I love your blog it’s the best ever!! I love the way you keep us motivated throughout the video :)
    I have a question;
    I’ve nearly finished the 30-day squat challenge and I’ve been doing you beach series butt workout some days as well, and I was wondering how I maintain my hard work when the 30 days are up? Can I just do you beach series butt workout (which is so much fun!) or should I do some squats or both?
    Thank you so much :))

  51. Hey Cassey!
    I love your blog! I’ve been following it obsessively for about 3 or 4 years now!! My favourite videos are the call me maybe squat challenge and the kick boxing! I do them all the time!1
    Any chance you could do another kick boxing video??

    Thanks for everything!!!
    LOTS OF LOVE

  52. Hey, all us REALLY younger teens have a harder time buying food that is healthy for us. For example, if you look at a 14 to 16 year old who lives in a household who eats junk food, he/she is more likely to EAT that food. Now, like me, I have a family that cannot afford healthy food, and nor can I… due to babysitting population. Well, I exercise and don’t really eat that healthy. What should I do to make life EASIER, more wanted, change. Actually, my house has about 17 people that are food-eaters. My mom also does your exercising and all I want to do is tone up. People are at me for this because I’m skinny. I am slightly seeing change, but it’s not going as fast. I cannot help it! My sister, who is dying of cancer, chews up a lot of money for the family. WHAT CAN I DO? HELP, please, that would be appreciated.

  53. monique says:

    hey Cassey! do you maybe have a workout or stretch routine to do while sick?

  54. Hi Cassey
    Do you have a weight chart for women that is an ideal weight according to your height. Also would like a heart rate chart that I can monitor myself when working out so that I am burning x amount of calories or it would be great to know how much calories am i burning when working out.

  55. Nesly Minas says:

    Hi Cassey!

    First at all, I love your videos and tips ^^ !! . So I wanna ask you a few question , I trying to lose 10 kilos that I gained , I am doing your may calendar workout everyday and before doing your video I do 30 mins of bike for cardio so my question are : are your videos gonna make get muscle and or lose weight at the same time? Or could you recommended some exercises in order to lose more fat and then your videos?
    I have weighted myself and it shows that I gained weight even though I eat healthy and follow your videos so I’m getting worry .
    I’d appreciate your answer!
    Gracias Cassey ^^

  56. Yes! The windows phone needs this app!

  57. hi emma! i have a bad back due to a motorcycle accident many years ago. one of my legs is longer than the other, no doctor ever gave me any advice on how to deal with this. i found stretching is the only thing that helps. pilates is great cause if you do it right you can strengthen your back along with all the muscles. if you still have pain you should see a doctor, at least get an x-ray. hope this helps, have a great day!

  58. Heather says:

    Hey there! I was just wondering if you were thinking of releasing your blogilates app for windows phone? I’ve been really excited about it and hoping that one is released soon so I can love it and use it :) I think itd be a great idea and would make alot of us popsters very happy :D keep up the great work! <3

  59. Hey Cassy! :D
    So I’ve been thinking about losing some weight and toning up a bit. I don’t know much about fitness to be honest, so I thought that I should only eat when I get hungry, which I don’t really get. I also got this My Fitness app to calculate the amount of calories I consume every day and it’s always less than 800, and I heard that it’s not healthy at all, but I don’t know what to do. I don’t feel like eating, I only do when I’m hungry or I eat a small snack before a workout and a good healthy meal after my workout. I’ve just lost like 5 pounds within a month and a half, but it stopped there. I think I’m starting to gain weight.. I’ve also been doing the workouts on Youtube that you’ve posted (I LOVE THEM!). Maybe that’s why I’ve gained weight, since I read that muscles weigh more than fat? By the way, I’m a high school student, almost going to college, so I don’t really have time to workout much; just during the week ends. I’m 17 years old, 5 feet 2 inches tall and i currently weight 125 lbs, wanna get to about 110lbs……I know there’s something wrong with what I’m doing so please help!

    Also, I love everything you are doing! I’m kinda new to Blogilates and I extremely love your personality and all the energy you put to your videos!! Keep it up, girl!! <3

  60. Hi Cassey, I’ve been really determined lately to tone my stomach. Unfortunately it hasn’t really been working, I’ve tried all of your ab exercises but it just doesn’t hurt. When I workout I feel the pain in my neck and back. I’ve tried almost everything to take the strain from my back but it still hurts alot and is stopping me from getting the ultimate results. I’m really stumped at what to do now and am almost giving up on the body I really want. If you have any new tips please let me know, nothing seems to work! :(

  61. Try using the iPhone category to find the Blogilated app :)

  62. Hey Cassey,
    I just got an iPad and was hoping to find a blogilates app, but am having trouble… Do you have an app for iPad?

  63. Hey Cassey! I am a first year college student. I never knew Freshmen 15 could be real until I actually gained almost 13lbs from just the first semester of school. I used run cross country in high school and watched what I eat but it is extremely hard for me to do that in college. I feel like the dining hall options and lack of working out has really caused me to gain all this weight. I was wondering what foods you ate during your college years and how you tried to fit in time to work out. Right now, I am eating a lot more salads for my meals and trying to run and work out at least 30 minutes a day. Thanks for all you do Cassey! <3

  64. Hey, cassey i just want to say is i love your youtube videos. You really motivated me. I was wondering can you do a standing abs video? That would be great!!! Thanks

  65. Hi Cassey,
    I have RSI in both wrists and find it difficult to do a lot of arm workouts since I can’t put any pressure on my wrists. Are there exercises you would recommend that wouldn’t hurt my wrists more but still give me a great workout?

    I’m so happy I found your videos!

  66. You kill me everyday women. But it is absolutely amazing. Waking up sore from the day before and I look forward to do your videos ANYWAYS. Keep it up! <3

  67. Cassey-
    I just wanted to let you know, thank you so much for spending all this time and effort to make these fitness videos- I really mean it. I was first introduced to Blogilates by a girl mentioning it in a Youtube video, and thought it would be interesting to try. And I loved it! You were so peppy and funny, and the titles of workouts made me excited for the next day when I would be able to get down on the mat and work out again. I used to have terribly low self-esteem about my body, and after finishing the beginners calendar, I took a look in the mirror at my sweaty, panting self, and admired my body for the first time in a long time! Thank you so much for all you’ve done to help me jump that hurdle and keep posting videos!

  68. Hi Cassey, I just had started to exercise with your videos for beginners, but now, I just find out I’m pregnant, Do you have any routine for prenatal pilates for beginners? Or Does anyone know is Cassey has this exercises included in her videos?
    Thanks greetings!!!

  69. Hi Casey,

    I was wondering if you have a routine that i can follow where I do not have to lean forward or bend forward. i have a condition with my stomach and have been advised to always pick things up dead straight and bend my knees and not learn forward this restricts me in doing any exercise ( when sleeping i also have to sleep upright so laying on the floor for exercising is not suitable either ) I’m struggling to find a routine that doesn’t involve lying down or bending any suggestions on exercise I can do?

  70. Hi Cassey!
    a big hug from Croatia! I’ve recently discovered your site! After ALL the workouts I feel completely awesome! I was an intermediate but I begun with the beginner program! Now I’m just waiting patiently for the new month! I already saw some results and I hope to be in the better shape of my life!
    Thanks to exist! You are the right motivation!
    p.s.1. keep going on with your work, and if you ever come to Croatia just contact me ;)
    p.s.2. sorry if my English is not perfect XD

  71. Do it anyways but try to be courteous! Do it on a rug and with a yoga mat or thicker pilates mat and try to land quietly :)

  72. Hi Cassey!
    I have just resently found blogpilaties and i absolutely love it!. It is the workout idea that i have always dreamed of, to train your body with just the body itself. I have problems with a weak back and neck and have had hard to find good woorkouts to streangthen back and neck. Do you have any good tips how i could work on the mucles in this area?

  73. Hey Cassey, I just have to say that I love you and your blog has really helped me motivate myself to do more exercise and eat clean. I also just have to quickly say how much you make every work out fun and you always have a smile on your face pushing me to do better. Thanks to you I fell happier and healthier and have more self-esteem than ever! However I am struggling to shed the last few centimetres on my waist as well as how much fat and sugar i should be putting in my body ( like even healthy fats and natural sugars) and whether reducing that to bare minimum would help me?

    Thank you so much for everything!!

    Jemima :)

  74. HI Cassey!
    I started Blogilates about four months ago when a running injury required me to stop running all together. As a marathon runner, I was skeptical that any other form of exercise could keep me in shape. I started doing 3-5 Blogilates workouts a day and I’ve lost FOURTEEN pounds and NONE of my pants fit me anymore. I haven’t been this size in my waist since high school (8 years–yikes!). I also can’t believe the muscle definition I now have in my obliques and my butt! I really love your full body videos and your muffin top workouts…so keep those coming! Thank you–you are such an inspiration.

  75. Holding in belly= good. Holding breathe= bad. Pulling rouyour abs helps train the muscles to stay flat and not push outwards. You can actually make yourself appear bloated by doing ab exercises and not pulling in your belly.

  76. Hello cassey I want to do loads of pop Pilates but I can push myself coz when I get home from after school clubs and stay behind late I come home around 5:30 and the time I start it’s 6 so I wanna know how to be quiet coz I live at the top floor in a flat and their are old people below me so I can’t push myself what shall I do
    Thanks for all your help x

  77. hi Cassey I need a bit of help because im stuck in a situation about healthy eating because I don’t like any vegetables except potatoes and hardly any fruit so how am I meant to eat healthy if I don’t like them (im a very fussy eater) also I don’t really like water that much so how do I make it taste better
    thanks for your help x

  78. She has a video about this on Youtube!

  79. Shannon,

    Don’t worry about it, and don’t let it get you down. We all have weeks that we go down and then the next we go up. Just try to get back in the routine, and not dwell. I hope that’s helpful! Don’t feel defeated, feel empowered that you are trying to make healthy changes (like being able to balance your life for workouts)!

  80. hey cassey people say that it is not good to hold you’re belly in is that true????

  81. Shannon,
    Don’t sweat it. Keeping up a routine is difficult and I have always sruggled with this myself. I used to drink at least one can of Dr. Pepper a day and would get headaches if I didn’t drink it. But one new year’s eve i made a decision. I would no longer drink Dr. Pepper. It was an extremely unhealthy habit and I wanted to change that. From that day forward I have succeeded in my goal and its been years. What im trying to say is that it is as simple as making the decision to change your way of life. Any time you feel the urge to regress into old habits make it a conscious choice. Be aware of your choices and simply choose what you know is right. If its too much to handle all at once I suggest designating a certain cheat day. You can treat yourself to something speacial for your hard work without ruining your overall effort. Good luck and i hope this helped you in some way :)

  82. Hi, feeling down… I feel like I’m getting no where. I feel confident at the beginning of the week and tell myself, “I Can Do This. I Can Follow The Meal Plan!” … I know I can but I keep cheating! I know I’ll feel super guilty later but I still do it -.- I did great in the first week! Followed the meal plan PERFECTLY and i lost 7 pounds! Then week 2 and 3 I cheated a lot with fast food and treats (chocolate, chips, COFFEE, ice cream) and I gained 0.2 of a pound in week 2 (Really nothing lol) idk yet about week 3 since tomorrow is my weigh in day to start off week 4… with how I’ve been eating though I don’t have much faith that I’ve lost anything -.- But my goal is to lose weight to be at a healthy weight… Not maintain :s On the upside I’ve figured out somewhat of a balance in my busy life to get in workouts! So it’ll be day 4 of following my workout schedule tomorrow :D Anywho, just feeling incredibly defeated for bbeing unable to follow this meal plan properly even though I KNOW it works (proof in my week 1!) and was wondering if you had any advice v.v

  83. Hey Cassey,
    I discovered you on Youtube about a week ago and have just started the beginner’s calendar! :D I really love all the workouts and the fact that I can just go home after work to do them. I really love your encouraging personality :DD I have tried a lot of dieting methods and none of them worked. But I feel super confident with this calendar! Thank you!

  84. Hi Cassey!!
    I have been training really hard for the past year and I have noticed that I am gaining muscles, but my thighs still are jiggly its so annoying when summer comes along… I notice that there is muscle but still jiggly? I’m losing fat everywhere but my thighs.. please help! Thank you very much, love you! <3

  85. Hi Cassey! I have a few questions. What is your advice for exercising during that time of the month?? I’ve heard it’s a good idea to exercise but others have told me you should just rest. I don’t want to kill myself but I don’t want to sit around and be lazy either.

    Second question is more of a request…

    I love dancing and I love your pilates. Would you do a whole-body routine based on the movie Burlesque with Christina Aguilera?? It would be so much fun. I already dance to the soundtrack but I really want to incorporate some pilates moves into it!

    And third question…will you ever come to Oregon???

    Please get back to me!! I am a huge fan. My cousin and I are doing the calendar together and I feel stronger every day, and she has already lost two pounds!

    Love Naomi

  86. Hey Casey! I’ve been really sick for about 6 years now. Sick to the point of almost losing my life more than I can count on one hand. I won’t bore people with details but it’s really hard for me to workout. Before I got sick, and even during before I took a turn for the worse, I was really active; I would run 8 miles a day or swim 200 laps at the pool. Now I’m lucky if I can use the elliptical for 20 minutes a couple times a week. A lot of people tell me I should just be content with not exercising for a while but I honestly crave it so badly. Sometimes I feel bad when I look at workout slogans and they say things like “stop making excuses” or “just do it” because I have the drive, just not the physical strength. How do you stay fit when your reasons are bigger than just “not doing it”?

  87. Cassey, you’re so great and I love your videos! You are so motivating and always know exactly what to say to get me through a workout! I also love your videos that address health concerns and other body-related questions, and I have one of my own.
    Why do some people have knobby knees and how can those of us with knobby knees get rid of them? I feel like I’m always having to squeeze and flex my knees to make my legs look straight when I am standing.

  88. Hi Cassey!

    First of all, I am in love with your blog. I discovered a couple of months ago when I was surfing the internet and finding fitblrs [tumblr blogs which are dedicated to getting fit]. Anyway, it took some time to get me motivated and now, well, today, actually, I’ve just started the beginner’s workout calendar. It was a really good workout for me and I think it’ll benefit me a lot. But, the thing is that, since I’m on winter break, I do the workouts in the mornings. But, once school starts, on Jan 7, I will barely have time to workout after I get back home from school. Should I do the workouts in the morning instead? [I normally have to wake up at 6am on a normal school day and shower as well].

    Thank you so much for everything you do!

    Tanya(:

  89. Walloooo Ksey,

    I was just wondering what I could do to get more thinner legs because they are really muscular and I can’t wear skirts or dresses because it’s ugly! :( any tips? thkks

  90. Hi Cassey!
    Is if better to do exercise at a certain time during the day? I’ve read that is better in the morning it’s absolutely impossible for me to wake up earlier! But if it’s better I’m ready to accept the challenge

    Thank you for all the effort you put on blogilates I have to say I enjoy it a lot! I hate you everyday that my muscles hurt but I love you when I see my body in the mirror!

    Gracias from Spain!!

    Hi Cassey,
    I really want to do the 12 week new body make over but I’ve come a bit late to the party.
    I read in one email that there will be 2 start dates, today and then the 1st January. Is this still the case?
    If I buy my journal now will you be reposting the workout calendars and meal plans from the 1st Jan?
    Thanks for all your hard work :)
    Hope to hear from you soon.

  92. Hey Cassie!

    I’m in a bit of a rut…last year I decided to lose weight and I deprived myself. I lost 13 lbs and had a better body for ballet but due to deprivation I began to overeat and am now 10 lbs heavier than when I started. I can’t seem to find a solution to lose what used to be 15 lbs but is now 20 lbs. I was wondering if you had any suggestions? Also, if I do your workouts that aren’t pilates will they make my muscles bigger? Because I got comments about “doing the wrong exercises” in the past when doing your videos; I love your videos though so the comments kinda bummed me out \:

    thanks!!!

  93. Hey Stephanie,
    I am in the exact same situation and I have found a friend in the freezer. If you buy veg all in one go, pre chop it and keep it in freezer bags it is so much easier to cook from scratch quickly. I found that doing this with mushrooms, peppers, green beans, aubergine and courgettes works well, and then I just freeze leafy greens like kale and spinach in their packages, as well as herbs like parsley and basil. That way you just have to add them to your other ingredients when your cooking which is a real time saver, plus your veggies wont go off before you can use them. Another tip is to make a huge batch of something freezable, like veggie curry, ratatouille or pasta sauce or whatever and freeze it in portion size tupperware (for laaaazzzyyy days :)). I know that freezing veggies can make them less crisp but if you are planning to steam them or add them to a dish it doesn’t really make a HUGE difference.

    Happy cooking :)

  94. I live in a dorm. i have a small kitchen on my hall, but i have limited access to cookware and my mini fridge is too small. i want to follow your meal plan, but it requires too much cooking and i don’t have the time to cook often or keep going back and forth to the grocery store. could you give me some tips or make a meal plan that is college life friendly? thanks! (:

  95. Hi Cassey, I’m carmen from malaysia. I hv 1 concern, my tailbone hurts eventho I double up the mat while during your abs training. What should I do? I feel the mild sore on my tailbone when I’m sitting and standing up. Pls advice.

  96. No it really isn’t. It drastically decreases metabolism. In 2 hours someone could easily consume thousands of calories and eating like this promotes binge eating disorder which can turn into bulimia. If you want to loose weight eat 5 – 6 small meals a day.

  97. Hey Cassey :) I’m so happy I found you!! I have one problem. When I’m doing yours workouts, when I have to lay on back and do exercise, my tailbone is hurting. Do you know some solutions ? Sorry for my bad English!

  98. Hi Cassey!
    Have a question for you… Do you recommend the following diet, which has somewhat of a popularity in Korea these days… It is called, 1 Meal A Day. Many celebrities have proceeded with it and one said she ate the meal between 2pm to 4pm of the day. She ate anything including fast foods to the point that she almost threw up since she only has 2 hours in the day to eat… Is this diet okay to follow for sometime of the period to lose weight?
    Hope to get back from you soon
    Thank you

  99. Hey cassey, i hope u find the time to reply to this…. I was stuck in my weight loss journey till i came across u!! I’m midway but now i’ve got the amazing news that im expecting my first baby!! Yayayayyyy!! Im so elated but i dont want to use this as an excuse to get lazy or gluttony…i want to be the best version of me for my kid :):)(*_*)♡.♡*♡* plz advise me whether i can do some of ur workouts in my state. My docs say pilates is good but i wanted to know from u too whether its safe

  100. Hi Cassey!! I love you so much. I saw in some comments that you’re helping out in some people’s health and weight loss. And I really needed help… please help me! :(

    Here’s my story.
    Last year in 2012, that’s when I started taking note of my body and how much I’ve gained weight because since young I was always that skinnier girl in the family who can eat almost anything and everything and still be slim but when puberty hits me, I gained so much fats that I evem cried. So I worked out every day and changed my diet drastically and lost 6kgs in like 9 months. Amazing but I didn’t know I was doing it the wrong way because I got really skinny and I lost my period…

    Then after 1 month of holidays I gained 5kgs back but back to the normal average weight. But I’ve gotten fatter again. And flabby. Now I’m still doing cardio like running and elliptical 5 to 6 days a week while doinh some weights. I try to eat mostly lots of fruits n veggies and lean meats like fish chicken turkey. But I don’t know why I’m still not lpsing weight because my shorts are getting tighter!!! Help me… I do blogilates too!

  101. Hi Cassey!
    I love your website and everything that you do! I have told so many people about how great and wonderful your videos are! I was wondering if you could do some recipes that might be easy to find/make in college cafeteria. I love the food you make, but sometimes I don’t have the ingredients or the stove/cooking apparatus to make it in my dorm.

    Thank you so much! Don’t forget to be awesome! :D

  102. Hey Cassey

    I love your website !! I was wondering if you are going to release an android version of your Blogilaties app? I love the idea of a pocket workout :)
    Also can you do a jump rope work out video or printable?
    Thanks so much for inspiring me to lose weight !

  103. Omg! When I found your videos on You-Tube I almost died! I’ve done a lot of different types of workouts and yours are the best! Every time I do one I just want to go straight to another. Your just so full of energy and make me never want to stop working out! I can’t thank you enough for doing these videos. Thanks girl!

  104. Hi Cassey,
    I discovered your YouTube videos while looking for some short workouts that I could piece together to vary my routine. Yours are FANTASTIC! I love your energy and enthusiasm. You seem to really enjoy what you do and it shows. I have a one year old and work full time so that doesn’t always leave much time for exercise. I try to fit it in wherever I can, even if it’s during my lunch hour. After my son was born, I lost the 42 pounds I gained while pregnant pretty fast. But I really needed to regain muscle tone and your videos are awesome for that! Keep up the great work.

  105. Hi Cassey,

    Just discovered your blog and videos today ands have to say just from surfing around I really like what I’ve discovered. I’ve always been average sized, a few pounds bigger at points of my life and a few pounds smaller at other points of my life, but I’ve always been so embarrassed by my stomach. I’m really excited to start your beginners calendar tomorrow and hopefully find the workout that finally keeps me interested enough to really achieve a toner sexier me.

    Thanks for this site. I’m really excited to see where this journey with you can take me.

  106. alyssa laughlin says:

    Hi cassey! :) I’m 14 1/2 year old girl who loves your videos and would love to get fit and stay healthy. But I had a question…. I’m doing your lean out mini meal plan, so I can lose weight faster and become healthier faster. But a lot of times on instagram I see women all fit and muscular…like bulky muscular..and I just want to look lean and healthy…will this diet plan anfd exercise make me look bulky? Please let me know. I love you and your videos! You are my all time inspiration! Thank you! <3

  107. Hi Cassey I’ve been doing blogilates since february & I really love what you do!. The reason I got into fitness more was because I re-kindled my love for Britney Spears, I was a fan when I was little & she helped me get into dancing which is my passion now & she’s always been such a wonderful fitness role model – she works hard as hell for her body, she’s not one of those people that diets on kale & carrots but eats like a normal person & works her ass off so she inspired me to do the same.

    I’m writing because her new song came out it’s called Work Bxxtch & it’s awesome, the beat is killer, the lyrics are hilarious & its strangely motivational & empowering I would be so grateful if you did a video to this song – it’d mean a lot for me as a Brit fan & as a fan of you as well!

    Lots of love Cassie, thanks for the encouragement!

  108. Hi Cassey,
    I have decided that to make a september new start and want to get fit, (averagly fit at least) I have taken up pop pilates for beginners, but I was wondering if you have any suggestions of what to add to my fitness regime, I was thinking of jogging, things that dont cost money. I am 23 5 foot 3 and very slim build, so im not looking to lose weight.. just be a better version of me :)

    also thank you for being very inspiring!

    Grainne

  109. no it’s not! your body can’t tell time as long as it doesn’t affect your sleeping duration and eating habits it’s absolutly no problem,there isn’t a set time to workout you could even workout at 3:00 am,me as a night person i work out around 8 pm becuase that’s when i’m more energized and lively,just make sure to refuel after ! :) hope this help

  110. Hi cassey I was just wondering if it is bad to exercise at midnight or 1am? that is the only time I end up having enough time to do a full workout session due to working and having my child be fussy and not want to go to bed.

    I love all your videos and hope I get better at doing them and become more flexible :)

  111. Hey Cassey, I feel really guilty because I’ve skipped a few days of your sweatember work outs. :( I just started school so it’s really hard for me to keep motivated and on track. Can you give me a pep talk?

  112. Hey Cassey, I just have to say I love your blog and you tube videos they have really motivated me to exercise more and eat clean. I love your clean eats video and was wondering if there are any clean eats cook books you would also recommend. Also do you think you will do a recipe book in the future?

    Thanks so much for all that you do for us!

  113. the bug update will be there soon!

  114. Hey Cassie I like your app but I can’t upload pictures too the forum which is making it hard to enjoy completely

  115. Hi casey,

    loving the app and your youtube videos, can’t wait to get stuck into sweatempber xx

  116. The video called “what makes you bootyfull” is a good one to tease your boyfriend. While your butt and legs are dyingso will your bf ;)

  117. so hard during ramadan! but working out right before u break fast or right after…this year was hard even if you ate healthy our bodies did not have enough time to break down the food…iA next year maybe cassey will help us

  118. Hello
    Quick advice question, I am going to take a crack at your 8 week Bikini Meal Plan,
    any ideas on what I could replace the Protein Shake for? Protein shakes dont agree with me.

    Thanks :)

  119. aww you are such a sweet sister!
    The cake looks absolutely delicious. I must give it a try!

  120. Hello, Cassey,
    lately I found your site and now it’s already two and a half months I’ve been working out with you. My results are great and my inspiration too. I hardly wait the next morning to have a new workout!
    Especially I like your new HIIT workouts because I can do it at my own pace and I know exactly how much effort I need to accomplish the whole routine.
    But I also like your short videos because they are like chocolates in a box – you don’t know what’s inside. Just open it according to the list in the calendar and start doing it.
    I want to know your apinion to isometric training and your thoughts about it. Do you think it’s a good idea to do some isometric workouts like Kallanetics or it’s enough to follow your changing tempo to strenthen the inner deep muscles?
    And one more question. I used to watch your videos on Youtube but sometimes (rather often) it tells me that the owner prohibited to watch this video on mobile devices. So I need to find the video on your site and it’s inconvinient to loose time for that in the middle of the workout. Is it possible to fix it up, please?
    I appriciate your approach to working out and making it so interesting, inspiring and easy to follow.
    P.S. excuse my mistakes in English if any :)

  121. Anjali Tennekoon says:

    Casey,
    Thank you, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for the POP HIITS – they were absolutely amazing. Working out became so exciting and there was always something new to look forward to. I know I said it before but Thank You, once again! And do do do please (please!) keep giving us more of these – could you (please?) continue these in August, too? Indebted to you in more ways than one – am so grateful for you!

    -Anjali

  122. How do you enter the sneaker giveaway!?

  123. Hi Cassey! I wanted to thank you so much for being an inspiration to me and so many others to have a healthier, more positive life. Last year I started my freshman year in high school and finding your videos was one of the best influences on my well-being that year. However, I did have a hard time balancing schoolwork and workout time (I attend an extremely exigent school and usually have up to 7 hours of homework, not counting other projects). I was wondering, are there any tips you can give me (and other students in the same position) to ensure a healthier year, like how to follow the workout calendars on a crazy-busy schedule? If you have any ideas or comments, they are greatly appreciated. Thank you so much and you are wonderful! Keep up the great work!!!! :D

  124. Jessica says:

    Hi Cassey

    I was just wondering, how do you know when it’s time to get new sneakers?

    Thanks so much for all your motivation and inspiration!

    <3
    Jessica

  125. Hi, Cassey! I was just wondering what size the shoes in your giveaway is? Please let us know!(: By the way I absolutely adore everything you do and I love your workouts!!
    Thanks!

  126. Hi cassey! I was wondering of you had any tips on staying healthy when fasting. So basically this month I’m fasting for a holiday and I try to eat healthy as much as I can and I still exercise. But I’m still gaining weight and when I exercise I fwel faint. Do you know any tips that can help

  127. Katelyn says:

    Hey Cassie! Well I’m visiting my aunt and uncle for a week and they don’t like to cook and they eat really unhealthy. When we go out I try to order something on the healthy side but then they look at me like I’m a weirdo or something. Plus all of this eating out is making me very bloated and I feel like I’m going to give birth any day now. Do you have any advice??

  128. Crystal says:

    Cassey – I know you love the Nike Free Runs and I know you do a major variety for workouts. I’ve only ever bought running shoes but am finding that I need something for indoor/gym cross training as well as running. I am also an underpronator and needs additional support for my arch. Do you still recommend the Nike Free Runs for cross training, running and arch support?

    Thanks for your feed back!

  129. I recommend the begginer calendar if you are new to get used to the working out, the advanced calendars are probably going to be too hard for those who are not used to it! :)

  130. Brianna says:

    Hey Cassey,
    I love all your videos and great recipe ideas! really look up to you for health and fitness tips! I wanted to know if you have any strategies or tips for when you must eat out? My family and friends love to go out and eat rather than making something healthy at home. i don’t really have a choice so i was wondering what you do to make sure you don’t eat something with a billion calories?

  131. Dear Cassey, is there other ways to burn and tone our lower belly rather than doing pilates? I have trouble doing them as my back hurts whenever I do it. If so can you make some videos of them? Thank you :)

  132. About the pop hiits, how long should a rest be before I do another set?

  133. I was wondering the same thing. I’ve been doing yoga but that’s much easier. So what do you think I should do?

  134. roxanne hernandez says:

    Hi cassey!
    Im new to all this and so I was wondering, should I try the July calendar or the beginners workout calendar?

  135. Anjali Tennekoon says:

    Meant to say “add” another traditional HIIT type workout. Thanks!

  136. Anjali Tennekoon says:

    Hi Cassey,
    Was hoping (really really really hoping) you could another traditional HIIT type workout soon – like Food Baby or Bikini Blaster 1. Maybe you could call it Body on Fire and add it to your current series! Would love to try a new hardcore HIIT. Thanks Cassey for ALL that you do!

    -Anjali

  137. Elizabeth says:

    Hi Cassey!
    I had my oldest son very young, and I got pretty big. But after I had him I went from a size 13 to a size 1 in 6 months. Nursing really helped, but since I wasnt working out, I got stuck with that wrinkly baby belly. 8 years later, it’s still there and no matter what workouts I do it won’t budge. My question to you is what workouts go you recommend to help get rid of it? Maybe I’ve just been doing the wrong thing? Thanks for everything you do!! Your awesome!!

  138. Cassey I was wondering if I could make a seductive video my boyfriend wants to watch me do pilaties and I want to tease him a little bit thanks

  139. Hi Cassey !
    So i want to get abs , but i’m far too fat to get them i think. What should i do ? İ’m so fat that I can’t even do pilates.

  140. veggie juices are a great way to get a ton of necessary nutrients in one drink. Don’t buy bottled veggie juices, they have extra ingredients in it to preserve the drink which isn’t good (the less ingredients listed on a package the better). Juicers are kind of expensive, but they’re definitely worth it! i have one and i absolutely love it. there are tons of great juice recipes online, they usually consist of 1-3 veggies and then a fruit or lemon to make it taste good. some health food stores make juices, and there are also juice bars around but buying those every day can get pricy, buying a juicer is cheaper in the long run.

    here is a link about juicing:
    http://juicerecipes.com

    This documentary got me into juicing:
    “Fat sick and Nearly Dead” (on netflix)

    For cooking eggs, check out ghee which is clarified butter and is said to be healthier (in small amounts).

  141. Hey cassey,
    I currently go to the gym 5times a week. I do cardio 30 mins and strength training with free weights and on the machines. I am 24 mother of 3 kids( they love to eat plenty of fresh fruits only so my frigde is sort of stocked), I have been trying to eat clean(my inly probably like sine other people is that I’m not a fan of veggies) everyday expect on sunday. I have lost weight especailly around my midsection. But I believe I still have a bit more fat that I need to reduce around my midsection inorder for me to tone my midsection. I was wondering if maybe you might be able to make a video with gym equipment (cardio, machines, etc.) with some of your home routine workout for a rare hybrid like me. I love your videos, some are challenging, but love your energy and spunk.
    Please maybe a hybrid work between gym cardio and at home workout?
    Want to know if might be able to substitute vegetables with a vegetable juice, if yes which one or maybe how to make an at hone vegetable juice?
    Oh and what do you cook your eggs with oil, butter, a non stick spray? (Cuz I cook with canola oil but I place two napkins under my eggs to absorb the oil and place another on top as well. I tend to do this with anything that has grease or oil.)

  142. Christine says:

    Hi Cassey – I’ll definetly not able to thank you enough for the tremendous help your workouts did for my body and my spirit. For my health overall. I’ve been doing the pop workouts for about a year now, 4 to 5 times a week, I’ve lost about 50 pounds since i started and I feel and look better than never. However I now would like to maintain the weight while keep toning and I’m not sure how can I best incorporate the 2 days 1 hour cardio workout with the pop calendar. Could you please advise on how to schedule the intense cardio (and here im also talking about treadmill and eliptical workouts beside the Hiit pop ones)and pop Pilates for best results?Thank you so much!!!

  143. Jaime Jones says:

    Hey Cassey!
    just a quick question! I workout 6 days a week, eat clean, but drink coffee like nobodys buisness!!!! Is this very bad? I work nights and quit smoking and this seems yo help with both….

  144. Samantha says:

    You have a beautiful soul!

  145. OMG We have the same naaaame!! :) Hi Cassey I’m 14 years old and live in NEW ZEALAND!!! :D and I absolutely am in love with your workouts ! thank you so much for giving us all what we want! a body to die for! Your calanders are amazing and it is hard with school but I manage! I love how enthusiastic you are when your working out which helps me keep on going!
    Lots of Love, Cassie <3

  146. Brittany maxwell says:

    Can you please show us some different smoothie recipes!??

  147. Hey Cassie! So I just started your workouts this month and I LOVE IT! But one concern I’ve been having is while doing the pilates workouts I’m trying to keep my stomach sucked in, like you said in order to get those flat abs, but for some reason I can’t hold it in :'( now I’m developing those puffy abs, which are cool, but not really the goal I had in mind. I eat healthy 5 times a day, but I do keep dairy products in my meals and snacks could this be a big factor why my abs aren’t slimming the way I want? I used to have a nice six pack so I know it’s attainable for me, but that was from barely eating at all…. and that’s definitely not the lifestyle I want to go back to…. So please any suggestions?! I really wanna get this down! :D

    PS Thanks for your encouragement through the vids!! Helps tremendously!

  148. Cathy Beling says:

    Hey Cassie! (((:
    I am absolutely in love with your workouts! I started watching your videos 2 years ago and I havent looked at any other fitness trainers ever since! I just want to thank you for taking your time to make these workout videos and motivating each one of us! (: I just want to request wether you can make a video about what to do after eating a huge meal after binging! I have just been so stressed lately that I have completely abandoned working out and just gone to food for comfort which is really unacceptable! Would love it if you could help out! Thank you so much Cassie! Keep up the good work! love you!!!

  149. Hello Cassey, Hello from Dominican Republic. I’ve been doing your videos for a while now. But I haven’t seen a video directly directed to cellulite. That’s my biggest problem right now.Thighs basically. I’d really love if you took time to do a video specially dedicated to that. Or maybe, if not, at least tell me which of your videos are perfect to my problem, which I know you have. Thanks so much, I hope you read this. Love your job, very well done!

  150. Hey cassey,
    Im a total night owl trying to get fit. Im 20 and real over weight and on top of that have spinal issues!(boy could it get worst?) Well i stay up pretty late even if I have to get up early. My body just does not adjust well to morning. And the big question is, will my unaverage meals cause me to not reach my goals?

    My breakfast would be others lunches and so on and so forth. And im really new to the eat clean world so at the same time I am trying to convince my mother so cook and keep food thats un processed and healthy in the home. And I have tried to wake up and excercise but I cant seem to get on with my day without a nap.

    And finding time during class and work to excercise is hard work but I am trying!!! And I really do appreciate some of the videos where you give an alternate for back issues! And your possitive attitude is a positive considering how people here talk so negative about fitness! Thanks for the videos and your future answer to my question!

  151. Hi Cassey, love the blog, love the workouts! Thank you for your amazing work! Could you maybe do a video specifically for teens? (That’d be great!)

    Hi cassey! I really love your videos and have just been starting to follow them. But I guess
    I have a different case, I’m really skinny and I have a apple-shaped body. I have veru broad shoulders and very narrow hips — which I dont really appreciate. I want to get thicker hips and thighs and legs maybe. I want my hips and butt to look wider than how my shoulders are so it’d be more feminine less manly. Can you have a specific workout for me? And maybe some diet tips too on what I should be consuming more on? Thank you!

  153. I love your videos, especially all of the lower body ones. But I was wondering if there are any modifications for side planks. I have an old elbow injury and for most things it’s ok but side planks even when I go down to my elbow are still really painful. If there isn’t a modification is there a similar exercise to substitute when you do them in the videos?

  154. Hi !!! I have a question I’m 36 and a mother of 3 very busy …I’m 5ft and weigh 106 and all I want to do is lose 5lbs and tone …I have a reallyhard time eating healthy….. do well for a few days then I give in and have a cookie lol ..its just seems like no matter how hard I try I can’t shed these five pounds ..please help !!!

  155. Cassey, thank you. I’m on day 5 and already lost 3.5 pounds. I have more energy, and I am more motivated.

  156. I am 21 years old. Weight has always been a iffy topic for me. Went through anorexia in my young teens and got really unhealthy. I gained some back and was at a healthy stage til I was 20, then I had my daughter 10 months ago. I gained over 60 lbs! I lost a lot of the baby weight earlier but had troubles with birth control and gained majority of it back. I have not started your full workouts yet but I have singled out a few and my sides burn! I hope I see results! I’m only on day 4. Wish me luck!

I’ve been trying to eat really clean and workout a lot because I want to be more toned. I’ve never been fat, I’m 5’3 and I weigh 112 but I want a cuter body. I’m 16 and I just wanna be cute!!!
    Wanted to let ya’ll know about an amazing thing I had for supper tonight. Cabbage cooked in coconut oil in a skillet and then take Ezekiel bread, tear it up and put it in. Put soy sauce on and it tastes like a healthy egg roll!!! It was soooo yummy!!!
    Also can you do some more workouts to One direction??? I’ve done What Makes You “Bootyful” soo many times!!!! Thank you so much for your videos and everything!!!:D

    Hi Cassey! My name is carly and i am in desperate need of your help. I am 16 years old and have struggled with my wieght for a very long time.I have done just about every diet and nothing seems to help too much. In October fo 2012 i got very strict with what i ate and exercising, so much that i got very sick an unhealthy. I then gained all of my weight back and i am stuggling so hard wuth my appearance. I am 5’3 and weigh 140 lbs. my sister weighs 129 lbs and makes me feel swful about myself because she is so skinny. I am currently trying a lo-cal diet, keeping near 1000 calories a day. But i work at a fast food restaraunt and am a full time student, so its very hard to eat clean. I need some help and motivation if i reallt want to get my life and health on track. I am so inspired by you and hope you can help me get what i need to do figured out, because while eveyone else tells me i look fine, i cant help but think of myself as disguisting. PLEASE HELP ME!,
    Carly.

  159. Hey Cassey! I am DESPERATELY in need of your help. I am 15 years old and about 35 pounds over weight (for my hight). I love working out and eating clean but my parents are the complete opposite. They know I’m trying to change to a healthier lifestyle but it is very difficult when they make it so difficult. :( It is hard for me to eat the healthy foods I would like to eat when the only foods they buy arent good choices and full of processed sugars and etc. I run everyday and workout to your videos (me and my best friend absolutely love you!!) , but I know I need to change my diet as well. I was wondering what you think I should do to/how to talk to my parents.

    Hey hun
    First wanted to say thanks for the dvd…nearly killed me but…onwards & upwards!
    Second, I know you’re not a parent but I wondered if you have any advice for me in light of the honey boo boo saga ;-) my family is not like that & my daughter no where near that weight but she is addicted to food and snacking and constantly asking for more. Her brother & my husband have a ‘normal’ attitude to food & have embraced the clean eating thing but the daily battles with my daughter are exhausting esp eating vegetables at dinner time. She’s 5 btw. I want to do the right thing by her but also don’t want turn food into a huge issue to battle over. For example she likes yogurt in her school packed lunch. I switched the little kids pot ones for natural yoghurt with honey & she just spat it out (not enough sugar??!) and while the rest of us loved your two ingredient cookies she wouldn’t eat them. Am I worrying to much she’s only 5 & doesn’t have weight problem probably because she doesn’t stop running about! She won’t always be like that though & the rest of the family have embraced a change. Nothing seems to fill her up..! Got any snack/meal ideas for her? Thanks hun x

  161. Hey Cassey, I’ve seen on your facebook that you have been getting a lot of negative flak on your recent blog posts, so i thought I’d send a little love your way! I’ve been doing your work outs and following your blog and youtube for about a year and a half now, your positive energy and fresh attitudes towards food and working out is such a motivator! I don’t have the body confidence to work out in public places such as the gym, so your do at home videos have literally changed my life and my body, and I am now getting closer to the achieving the body I’ve always dreamed of, and changing my attitudes towards what a healthy body image is and my attitudes towards food. I really love your vlogs too! they really help to pick me up and motivate me to keep eating clean when I’m stressed and find myself wanting to eat bad foods! Just like your totally cute gym gear motivates me to work out by making me feel fabulous when I’m getting gross and sweaty :L Thought it would also be worth mentioning that I introduced your workouts to my brother who is anorexic and its also helping to turn his unhealthy body ideal around too.
    Really can’t thank you enough Cassey! I have so much time and love for you! xoxo

  162. I love your workouts! You are so great, I’ve already seen a nice difference in my body, which is wonderful because before this no workout had done anything. It’s nice having a calendar to look at instead of choosing which videos to do.

    Request: can you do some more workouts that focus on lower abs and obliques? Most of your workouts focus everywhere but there (they touch on but don’t focus) and I’ve noticed while doing the #jaNEWary workouts that my legs n butt have gotten MUCH more toned and so have my arms and shoulders as well as my upper abs, but as you can imagine the remainder is… unfortunate and makes clothing fit VERY weird.

  163. I found out about you/Blogilates a couple of months ago but really settled in to figuring it out in January when I started the JaNEWary calendar. I just wanna like shout to the world about how great you and your resources are! Seriously. I’m an insanely busy college student and I’m going to be student teaching this semester and I think being able to do some quick workouts at home will be the exact thing I need to stay on top of fitness this semester. I always would do great for a few weeks but then get slammed with work and it’s hard to find time to head out to the gym. Being at home makes it so much easier!! And I FINALLY have someone who knows what they’re talking about to tell me what to do! Instead of me just trying things and hoping I see results. I just love you Cassey thanks for everything!! <3

  164. You should add a little blank box on the bottom of every sunday or a day to put your weight to track it. Or add room at the bottom of each day tp write what you ate!

  165. is there anyway you could make an eliptical work out cause i get bored just elpticalizing

  166. Cassey thank you soooo much for all of the inspiration that you bring into my life through your blog and videos! You’re amazing. I look forward to sharing my story of transformation soon. Also, I just wanted to say that we share the same birthday, tomorrow…Jan 16th!!! Imagine my surprise when I looked at my calendar and saw that your birthday is tomorrow as well. Happy Birthday!!!!

  167. I LOVE THIS BLOG SO MUCH!!!!! Im just a teen and going to the gym is still a bit intimidating but doing these online workouts has helped a lot! not to mention your crazy happy moods in ABSOLUTELY ALL OF THEM :D your cooking classes are topnotch and i just love the banana pancakes with only EGGS AND BANANAS :O

    PS. you should do a workout to ‘Thrift Shop’ by macklemore!!!!

    Thanks!!!
    xx

  168. I love your blog. You have inspired me to blog. I turn all my pilates gals to your website for so many reasons… fashion, exercise tips, inspiration, music etc…

    I love you Cassey! I was a beginner that was already in a rut. I watched one of your videos and you were so inspiring! I just kept watching and doing, and now I’m coaching my own student. You’re awesome!

  170. I love your personality and find your workouts a fresh new alternative to the usual routine,
    Thanks!
