Plus Size Workout Clothes

I have such a ridiculous obsession with plus size workout clothes. I really struggled when I first started working out at a size 32 to find anything that was remotely flattering or comfortable. Seeing as I post a lot of outfits and such, it shouldn't come as a surprise that even when working out, I want to look cute. I think it's insane that brands like Fila, Lululemon, Under Armour, Athleta, and more can't extend their sizes to be inclusive of Continue Reading

#YogaADay Body Breakdown

Day 31 - easy pose

Phew friends. I set out yesterday to do at least an hour of yoga and also capture the last week of #yogaaday poses that I couldn't get to since I was in a small hotel room with limited floor space.

Since I usually make my own schedule and work when I feel best, these long hours are hitting me hard. I tried continuing my #yogaaday in the Continue Reading

The Loser Identity


This is one of those posts that I'm not quite sure will come out right no matter how I phrase it, so I'm just going stream-of-consciousness style right now. I love being identified as a loser.
