Questions for Melanie. Are you a Vegan, and how did you get your arms so toned?

After reposting the “trash the dress” photo shoot. I received a few similar questions from readers. I decided it was easiest to answer them in a post.

I’ve seen you write posts about being Vegan. How long have you been a vegan? Almost 20 years

Are you a strict vegan? Not by the most strict vegan standards. I wear leather, I eat honey, bee pollen, royal jelly etc. The only dairy I product I consume at home is raw butter sometimes. I eat as vegan as possible out at restaurants, but with a relaxed approach. I am sure I have consumed some chicken stock or hidden dairy over the years, especially when it comes to birthday cake!

Melanie & Nicole each share their own path to the yoga mat, and why they each plan on sticking with it.

One of our first fitness features was Intro to Yoga Feature on The Everygirl’s site. It inspired us to share with you our path to the yoga mat…..

Nicole’s Yoga Journey

I started my yoga journey when I was 18. I had just started college and joined a gym that offered classes. I started going with my friend and we would stay for the poses (asanas in Sanskrit) but leave right before the meditation (Shivasana). The teacher let me go and knew I would come around eventually. Yoga is a mind and body connection and the final meditation is just as important as the poses themselves.
