Fitness for Fabulous Chubby Girls- Project Badass

8-13-18- Sooooo Last entry was on 11-25-12, yeah there’s a lot in between there and now. But let’s stick to the stats ma’am just the stats. Right now I weigh in at 272 pounds, a 55 inch wait, 59 inches hips and each thigh is about 21 inches. I’ve lost about 53 pounds since 2017. I’ve also gone completely vegan and am controlling my diabetes with diet and exercise.

Going plant based helped me cut out a lot of the junk food and I highly recommend watching Forks over Knives on Netflix to learn the health benefits of a plant based diet and also checking out Neal Barnard on YouTube. He’s got a great no nonsense vibe and explains how you can combat diabetes with a whole food, low fat plant based diet.

If you want to know more about my vegan journey email me @ for more resources. (For free!)

11-25-12- Ok So thanksgiving did not go well as far as staying on plan goes but the again did we really think it would? So I'm pretty sure I gained like 2-3 pounds but I won't know for sure until tomorrow morning. Worse yet I hurt my back on Wed at the gym so I'm going to have to hold off on any intense cardio, my plan is to just cut back to four days a week and use the recumbent bike so I won't strain my back. I also have to go back to my eating plan which I've neglected since Wed night. Ahhh repercussions.

11-18-12 - Ok so For five days I ate right, worked out and gained 3 pounds it was completely demoralizing. So I hate a medium pepperoni pizza and the went out on date night ate filet mignon cheesecake and then today we had BBQ for Breakfast/lunch. It was not good. I felt like I did all that hard work for nothing and then today Big's friends came over and one of the girls in their Dungeons and Dragons group said I looked smaller, go figure right? I feel massive most days like this is a HUGE undertaking (pun totally intended) but it's really hard to just keep trucking on but we have to, results don't come easy and I'm not looking to be super thin, just healthy and a place where my body will continue to work past 30. Tomorrow is Monday and it's a new day, I'm not going to beat  myself up over cheesecake, I'm not going to punish my body for what I ate but I'm going to work it out because it feels good.

11-14-12- Ok so everything going pretty good today in calorie range but man do I want a cookie, Carbs! Nom nom nom! Somehow triscuits just aren't the same. Will be posting new pic this Sunday!

So a few months ago I tried to take a balls to the wall approach to fitness, it didn't work for a few reasons. There was a lot of issues going on at the time financial, emotional, etc. So last week I started going to the gym and eating reasonably again, lost 6 pounds. I think the difference is now it's just something I do not some crazy plan I'm trying to live up to. So yeah is 6 pounds crazy good,  well...yeah it is. This is my "before" pic, not too bad if  I say so myself. This is me at 306 (was 312 yikes!) My 28th is Dec 7th and the goal is to be 290 or under by then, which is just a little over half a pound a day, I think it's doable. If you want follow along with me here's my
work out schedule and eating plan below below:
"Before" Picture-

 Eating plan via :
Calories:2120-2470 (you're allowed this but I usually top out around 1900 unless i have dessert)
Carbs: 238-401
Fat: 47-96
Protein: 60-216

Work outs:
 30 minutes of cardio 5 days a week
3 strength training sessions a week
2 Krav Maga/Barre Youtube videos/drills per week


  1. It use to be access and I remedied it with a home gym nicely and selfishly just for moi! Religiously use it and love it and it is the main catalyst behind my weight loss.

Overcoming the "I'm too fat for this."

I have not been posting lately due to many reasons, I'm back in school, I'm working full time again and I've been stuck in a depressive cycle in which I overeat, condemn myself for being a glutton tell myself I'll never amount to anything and then overeat again to make myself feel better. Wow, that sound really crazy when I say it like that. But so many women I know have told me the go through exactly the same thing. We lie awake at night thinking about all the terrible things we did to our bodies that day. I had McDonalds and Taco Bell all in the same day; word to the wise don't do this.

Tomorrow I have to go out networking, normally this is a chance for me to increase our connections or strengthen ones we already have and hopefully broker us more deals in the process but really it's about relationship building and frankly I've been pretty terrible at it lately. Why has my performance decreased so drastically? Because I don't think I deserve to be ther…

Becoming a Fashion Grown up-Chubby Girl In the World Style

Ok, I'll admit it I'm getting old, on Dec. 7th of this year I will be 29! (Silent freak out). What's worse is I'm now a grown up with an early not mid-twenties closet. I feel like I've outgrown the major retailers and need to move on, I'm ready for a more mature fashion relationship but I have fashion issues.
 My key fashion issues:

Short leg, longer torsoBottom heavy in all the wrong placeswhat I call "marshmallow syndrome"- If clothes are too tight, it looks like I'm a sausage, if too loose they not shape at all. So does any of this sound familiar? Here's the advice that has actually worked for me over the years and if I had unlimited funds this is the wardrobe I would create, I' a size 28 which is considered "super sized" so for the sake of argument I'll include designers that stop at size 26 but note them with an asterisk*. Nothing is worse than reading a that one page of Marie Claire dedicated to Plus fashion and realizin…

Shout out to local businesses!- Please support local and homegrown plus size friendly business in your area! This is the Portland edition

If you're in Portland Metro area do not miss out on going to two shops one in Northwest called Fat Fancy which has killer vintage and new styles for the plus size retro princesses out there and in the Southeast there is Savvy Plus run by the beautiful and awesome Gaya (I'm not sure if I spelled that right! Someone please correct me if I'm wrong).

Fat Fancy- great for both men and women and the funky little shop is right in the heart of downtown Portland so it's a great destination if you're on the Northwest side of town and wanna do some shopping. My favorite piece I got there is the amazing graphic crop top I use over camis. The girls who work here are amazing at making you feel comfortable and helping you find exactly what you're looking for.

Savvy-Plus has been and will continue to be my first destination when shopping for casual and career wear. I went in yesterday and was so excited about all the new things, the inventory is constantly changing so go in at…
