The Do Everything B*tch: Ronda Rousey on Her Body Being Too Masculine

MMA fighter Ronda Rousey recently fired back at critics in a UFC video promoting her August 1 fight with Bethe Correia. Some see Rousey’s body huge and masculine.

Does "Thin-Shaming" Actually Exist?

I read an article the other day. Well, I read hundreds of articles a week between my job and social media, but this one caught my attention. Apparently you can now "skinny-shame" someone. "All About That Bass" and "Anaconda" song lyrics have caused the thin world to lash back saying that calling someone "skinny" or "bony" is now hurtful and the equivalent of "fat-shaming." ...more

Team NutriBullet 2015-2016

The upcoming season for Team NutriBullet and training for the 2016 LA Marathon is almost upon us!  I was extremely fortunate to be a part of this program last year. My teammates and I received expert coaching and training, while NutriBullet staff helped us with our nutrition. I had an amazing experience, made a lot of new friends, and was able to run my fastest marathon in that crazy heat we had last March. ...more

The Beginning of the Rest of My Life

Just recently I've decided that in order to be happy I have to be happy with myself, and the more I looked around, the less I liked. I drifted off into a deep depression, cooking, cleaning, video games, and writing all took a back burner, and I just seem to drudge through the days and do the bare minimum.  Piles of dirty dishes, laundry, and oh my, dust bunnies, until I finally got disgusted with myself. Enough is enough! I need to be better for my children, what example am I setting for them, when I sleep all day long letting them terrorize the house? None....more

Thinking of the BIG & TALL ❤ ❤ ❤

I was having a conversation with this amazing teddy bear (heyyy boo!) and realized that though we are more accepting of the plus size man, the big teddy bear and overall the “big & tall”, their options for fashion are almost non-existent! I thought we had a limited selection as plus size women of stores, designers, fashion bloggers and so on, but it is enormous compared to the options men have.  ...more

Does This Address Make My Butt Look Fat?

I moved to Los Angeles under duress.I had some misgivings about LA. For one, I’d thought it was practically mandatory that transplants drop 10 pounds — I worried that I’d need to present a Weight Watchers’ certificate and my out-of-state license to the DMV before they’d issue a valid California ID.But LA was the place to be for the work I wanted to do. My NYC friends recited the mantra, “You’ll love the weather — it’s fantastic!” And I thought, “Hmmph, damned by faint praise.” Plus I was pretty sure I’d have to invest in a lot of lululemon attire....more

Stop Guilting People About Snacks and Their Bodies

A few days ago, my boss purchased a fun little candy dispenser from Costco. We've been trying to make our office more welcoming for teachers to come work. So when she came across this awesome little candy machine, she went for it. We filled it to the brim with Peanut M&M's and mini Hershey bars and placed it by our door. ...more
