Popaganda Podcast | Bitch Media

I recently had the honor of guesting on Bitch Media’s podcast, Popaganda. Download on iTunes or listen on Soundcloud. Have you ever felt cool? This makes me feel really cool! And I know I’m not supposed to say that because it makes me totally uncool, but like, you know how I do. I’ve had few […]

Hike Trails, Get Money

I sort of hinted at this a couple of months ago, but it is finally official: REI got wind of me and I’ve been contracted to essentially keep doing what I do. They aren’t asking me to sell a product or be anything other than what I am, an unlikely outdoorsperson. For the next six […]

Fat Woman Falling

The pouring rain hadn’t let up for even a moment from the time we all woke up, to meeting up at Travis’s, to pulling up to the Kurt’s Connection trailhead on Mt. Hood. We were doing this despite the rain’s protests. There was only the faintest vibe of, hey, maybe we should try this again […]

Femmes to the Front!

A few things: #1 and foremost, I’m on a RAD podcast and I couldn’t be happier about it. Lacy Davis, of Super Strength Health and Liberation Barbell, has a new podcast called, Femmes to the Front. I loved doing this with her and I lovelovelove the end result. I do not love the clicking sound […]

There’s absolutely NO weight-loss talk or even an undertone of encouragement to alter women’s bodies in any way. I’m extremely proud to be a part of this fantastic […]

Where Have I Been?!

What a Year, Amiright? If I counted how many times I’ve tried to write this, I’d probably be somewhere in the dozens by now. Unfortunately, writer’s block doesn’t idly pass so I’m posting anyway. I’m still depressed, but I’m not as depressed as I was. The little microcosm I exist in won’t let me be. […]

Ape Canyon (+ writing)

(Trail specs at the end) My body’s been a mess and my head even worse, but when my alarm goes off I’m up. The only thing that can get me out of bed after working late and only getting five-and-a-half hours of sleep is an all day hiking adventure. I wake up feeling different. Not […]

The Unapologetic Fat Girl’s Guide to Exercise and Other Incendiary Acts – Hanne Blank

The idea of exercise has gotten completely screwed up. None of us are exempt from this culture of body shame, even people who have the “right” bodies and do all of the “right” things. We are told our bodies need to be “fixed” and we can do that with exercise. We aren’t told it just feels […]
