Yes I'm genuinely sacred right now. Because everyday I wake up and hear about privileged ignorant malicious and bigoted people calling for another genocide shouting slurs and chanting their mantras of hate and it makes me feel sick. This is a beautiful world we're really messing with right now. For anyone who feels hopeless and enraged I'm right there with you. Especially when a Tiki torch company does a better job denouncing Nazis than the man leading our country.  . There is no excuse…

DO NOT FALL FOR FITSPO BULL THAT TRICKS YOU INTO THINKING HEALTH is about perpetually losing weight.  . How convenient it is that an account called healthtutorials features a photoshopped body with the head chopped off and a caption advertising quick slim thigh exercises? Lets be clear: this has NOTHING to do with health.  . What happens when we only associate working out with getting a slimmer body and becoming sexier and get told by companies that exercising should be for this purpose? We…

I feel like I need to say how important it is to travel and try new things every chance you get. We interpret colors differently-tastes sounds smells-it's impossible to completely understand someone by what you think you know. Just look at how different the few people in this photo are! Diversity is one of the best gifts we have and we're better for it

Go @amyschumer for calling this bull out! Just look at some of the headlines-look at what boys are being told they CAN do as opposed to the things girls are being told they SHOULD do. Your goal in life is not to sit still and look pretty. Come on guys we're better than this! http://ift.tt/2d2CJdK - http://ift.tt/1HQJd81

A little reminder that we are not born hating ourselves. We are not born feeling as if we can never measure up. We are not born picking apart our bodies. They are learned behaviors. And they can be unlearned.  However now it's harder because as adults we don't adapt our brains as easily as we do when we are children. It takes constant practice and repetition to rewire it from our negative perceptions of ourselves. But it's the most rewarding thing. . When I was in Florence I started spinning…

One of the things that battling my disorder taught me is to continually do things that scare you. Not to say throw yourself in purposelessly reckless situations but new things and new experiences that push you out of your comfort zone help you grow! Feel the fear and do it anyway. It's easier said than done of course but practice makes permanent. Although thankfully I'm not learning how to eat a structured meal again or break toxic core beliefs up I'm still trying to do things that push me…

Have you ever woken up and just hated yourself?  Yes.  Have you ever wished to be more of this or more of that?  Yes. Happens a lot.  Do you mourn a body you used to have that you think was "better?"  I've had days where I definitely do.  Do you feel guilty after eating a sweet or skipping a work out because you're SUPPOSED to be shrinking all the time?  Do you ever feel like you're continually falling short?  Yup yup yup.  Do you ever feel like you ruin everything? Like no one actually…

Let's talk about validation for a second.  .  Picture a water jug. Now this water jug continually loses water due to a hole at the bottom. You fill the jug all the way but over time the water level drops. You try to refill the jug but the water never stays and soon you have to refill it again and again and again because you're not actually fixing the real problem. The hole is still there no matter how many times you fill the jug back up.  . This a lot like being dependent on outside…

Today I am so grateful. I'm so grateful for recovery and good friends. I'm thankful that I know the importance of up-keeping your mental health and that my passion for helping others through their own struggles with body image or self image stems from a life that is both complicated and indescribably beautiful. I am thankful for all of you. I am thankful to be here still.

Didn't mean to leave you all high and dry today lovelies! It's my birthday and I've been out celebrating. And honestly this birthday feels different for one crucial reason: I am truly allowing myself to celebrate me. I am taking time today to remember the things I like about myself to focus on the positive and feel proud of the progress I've made. Just last night I remembered my first day in treatment when they placed a bowl of ice cream in front of me for a exposure snack challenge and I…
