So yesterday at a company-wide meeting, my place of employment announced they would be starting to implement a “Health and Wellness” program.

My brain being the way it is, of course, went straight to thinking “Oh shit, they’re going to start enforcing weight loss incentives and bullshit, I kind of want to puke, I hope this doesn’t happen, oh god oh god this is my worst nightmare…”

To my utter delight, they introduced the woman in charge of the program who started off talking about the importance of MINDFUL BREATHING TECHNIQUES and walked approximately 150 people through an exercise as an example. We also have yoga classes available to us after office hours once a week.

HEALTH AND WELLNESS - YER DOING IT RIGHT.

Fingers crossed they don’t end up morphing this goodness into something totally fucked.

Oh dear my heart stopped for a sec when reading this. Yay for yoga classes!

My fiancé has left to return to his country across the sea and I am left feeling quite sad, but in a bittersweet way that makes me feel optimistic for the future.
So I’ve been belly-dancing around my room in a crop top and smiling to myself as I think of all the beautiful things yet to come.
Today is a good day to love yourself. Put your stretch marks on display with belly bulging, skin exposed, heart swelling, body-rolling madness…let it out, babies!


Adorable and awesome as always.

Signal boostin for good things! From Fat Heffalump’s tumblr:

Ok Tumblr, time to make this happen.

Flying Pig Apparel is a startup company by some fab women who want to provide activewear for fatties.  They have no limits on what size they will make, and they’re looking at providing affordable options, worldwide shipping and best of all… using natural fabrics!  What you can see above is just their starter “story” that they will begin with, but they hope to expand to all kinds of things.

They have a Kickstarter up to help them get going.  I did an interview with Rene Rice, one of the fab women behind the project.

Let’s get behind this.  Pledge ‘em some bucks if you can.  (Pledges over $50 becomes pre-orders for garments, how cool is that?) 

If you can’t, share their project around to people who can.  Spread the word.

And if you think fat people should be exercising, put your damn money where your mouth is and contribute to a project to provide them with adequate clothing to do so!
