The seasons are changing, and it’s that time of year when we have to start being extra-careful about our immunity. And I’m not just talking about the flu–I’m talking about body image issues. In case you weren’t aware, disordered eating … Continue reading
Back when I was training to become a figure competitor (aka during my last and worse relapse with ED), I thought I had it all figured out: The carefully researched broscience in my muscle magazines told me that I was … Continue reading

Dear Sisters, Here you are. Rock bottom. The almost-or-just-past-quarter-life crisis. The Millennial angst, the thwarted expectations of the American dream. You don’t own a house. You lease a car. You owe more to your school than you education was worth. … Continue reading
[source] Howdy friends! It’s a beautiful Friday, and I just wanted to share some of that beauty with you–in the form of some great insights from other beautiful people. So, to get your weekend started off right: Have you lost … Continue reading
The truth is that I get most of my political insight from Mad Magazine; they offer the most balanced commentary by far. However, I've been very interested in the fallout from the recent election, much more so than I was in the election itself; it's like watching a Britney Spears meltdown, only with power ties.
I only have a couple of links to share with you today, but I think they’re important ones.
I love reposting Stefani Ruper’s words here, because she is so insightful, and offers some useable tips for “hacking” your ED. Today is no different. Here’s a link to her last week’s “Get Indignant.”
I also wanted to share with you an amazing post by a man named George Bryant. For those of you who are not familiar with the “Paleosphere,” George, aka the Civilized Caveman, is a Marine who fell into the Paleo diet and now hosts a blog full of amazing “cooking creations.”
George recently came out about his struggles with Bulimia on Abel James’ Fat Burning Man podcast, and followed it up on Stefani Ruper’s Live. Love. Eat. podcast. He then posted this blog about it. I highly encourage every one of you out there to go and read it. George is a force for good in this world–his earnestness and honesty is astounding, and his willingness to share his story is seriously special.
Anyway, that’s all I have for you on this rainy Friday morning.
[EDIT: Just realized that today is Thursday. Apparently my brain was ready for the weekend.]
Just wanted to share a really insightful post by Kelly at Be Anything But Quiet!: Body Shaming At Any Size
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I sure did.
