Too much woman for some to want or for others to "handle" both physically and personally. Living the big life on my own terms: big thighs, fat, tall, short hair, big personality, loud laughter, bright smile, nontraditional, tomboy, feminist, etc. Wouldn't shrink away for anythiing. Don't be afraid to be seen; invisibility does nothing for progress.

Daily dose of cute: little kids lifting weights.
If some unreputable source has told you that lifting stunts your growth, just look at me and @swartstrength

When it warms up again, I'm going to be back out in that canyon to see what other cool things there are too see. Hiking isn't the easiest when you're 300+ lbs but, it feels good to get out there and move that body.

There's a lot of things that could be said but, I'll save it. What needs to be heard is CONGRATULATIONS to my beautiful, talented, smart, strong, caring, and hilarious friend @cherylahaworth @haworthweightlifting
Cheryl has numbers I've been chasing my entire career and many have been chasing for 16+ I was her roommate for a while too. She's one of my heroines in this sport. I love you girl!
GOD BLESS AMERICA, dudes

When you've got to make some big time decisions, it's good to go to a place that triggers inspiration and allows for deep contemplation.

I've got back rolls but, the role I care about most is the one I play in society. In weightlifting, weighing yourself in is a regular thing. You weigh in in front of a stranger. Your bodyweight is posted and everyone can find it. You wear a singlet and everyone can see all your business. You get drug tested with someone watching. There's no hiding and there's no room for anything but being body positive with yourself. It's all out there; there's no hiding but, you need to do the work that needs to be done. That work needs to be done in the gym, in our minds, hearts, relationships, and societies. Worry less about the way you look, weigh, or whatever anyone thinks about you and worry more about making a positive impact out there.

Spent time with my buddy @razallcool at the art museum supporting my other buddy @thenerdypoet and his super cool piece.

Every person who has ever lifted weights and most athletes in many other sports have learned at some point: Valsalva Manoeuver.
This is the breathing technique we employ before initiating whatever movement we're doing. Many breath in through the chest. My coach teaches us to do it through the belly. You're breathing in to the belly like you would when you are singing. (Shhh don't tell anyone I used to sing in choir and competed a couple times). Any who, it's a good physical or auditory cue to wear a belt so you can feel what you're doing. Whenever you do use a belt, "push against the belt." The first breath I took in was through my chest; the second, through the belly. Stabilizing the right parts at the right times makes a big difference in performance and safety

Legs weak, back is sweaty, not training 6 days a week makes me regretty.
