Big kisses to all y’all, my lovelies.
Thank you so much for the empathy and sympathy on yesterday’s post. I’m absolutely fine - my rational adult self knows that if anyone has a problem with me, it’s their problem, not mine. But sometimes my inner 10 year old forgets that.
This morning I make-upped hard and sassed up my fingernails so that if it happens again, my birds are ready to be flipped in style :P
So, no, some small minded idiot is not going to ruin my day, let alone my week. It kind of ruined my workout last night, but, let’s face it, any workout that is basically run 800m-rest-run 600m-rest-run 400m-rest-run 200m was never going to be a 10/10, A++ experience for me in the first place!

Every so often

Most of the time, I can forget that I’m fat. I don’t have a scale any more, I don’t put much stock in clothing sizes, and I don’t spend much time looking in the mirror.

Most of the time it’s easy to focus on all the things I choose to define myself by that have nothing to do with the way I look. I’m a lawyer: smart, driven, confident. I’m a wife: loving, equal, loyal. I’m an animal guardian: compassionate, protective, patient. I’m a knitter and quilter: creative, imaginative, detail oriented. And I’m a Crossfitter: strong, determined, committed.

Most of the time it’s easy to remember all the things that make me awesome, no matter what others might think of my external appearance.

But when a bogan shit and his dickhead mates drive past in a souped-up Commodore throws garbage at you, calls you a “fat fuck” and laughs at you as you run up the street, well those times it can be all too easy to remember that to some people my fatness defines me as laughable, pathetic, worthless.

And every so often, if only for a second, it’s easy to believe them.

Annie looking stunning in Vogue. So amazing. “When I heard Vogue was interested in featuring me, I googled to see if there was a sports edition of the magazine. I was so excited when I realized, no, it was the Vogue.”


Where can I find this edition??? Must have!

It’s US Vogue, the one with Kim & Kanye on the cover.
