I’m Having Surgery

So, I’m having surgery on Tuesday and feeling pretty anxious about it. Some of you know that I’ve been having some issues on and off for a few years now, and I haven’t wanted to talk about it much, simply because I haven’t had the answers I needed to be able to tell you what’s going on. But now I do, so bring on all of the oversharing (this is why I’m a blogger right? Because I’m all about the overshare?). View Post

Floating Away: I Try Float Therapy

I’ve been wanting to go in a float tank since I was young but never got the chance until recently. I had a lot of questions before I went that made me hesitant to book an appointment. How does float therapy work? Do I need a bathing suit? Will I have to wear a robe that doesn’t fit me? Will I be too fat for the float tank? Basically all of the questions. View Post

My Active Body

When I look at the models in activewear ads, I never see bodies like mine. The fat, lumpy bodies with rolls and big thighs and tummies. My body is the kind of body that’s shown as a “before picture”, not as one that is active. Sometimes people with bodies like mine are photographed and made fun of, as I shared on my Facebook page recently, and quite a few people told me that things like this make them feel uncomfortable going to the gym or exercising in public. I don’t give a shit if you’re fat or thin, have wobbly bits or washboard abs, I think that everyone should have the right to exercise if they want to. View Post

Nike has launched a plus size range

One of the things people ask me about most often is activewear, so I’m forever on the lookout for new activewear options to share with you. Naturally, I was very excited to find out that Nike has expanded their range to include more plus sizes. I have been a fan of Nike shoes for a long time (I currently have two pairs on the go) and have straight size friends that swear by the quality of their Nike training gear, so to finally be able to get that quality gear in plus sizes is pretty exciting.

8 ways to help avoid burnout

How to avoid burnout

Burnout affects a lot of people (including me), and can leave you feeling exhausted, hopeless and like you’re not good enough. At least, that’s how it made me feel – I honestly felt like I was a massive honest to goodness failure. I never want anyone else to go through that, so I thought sharing some of the things that have helped me might help someone else. I’m no expert, just someone who has been there. View Post
