K E N Z I E ⚑️ B R E N N A  You're just gonna have to read my stuff to know what I'm about βœ¨πŸŒ™ πŸ’˜ Article read and reviewπŸ‘‡

Time for some rillness;
I've gained a bit of weight. I had a vacation. Congrats to me.
πŸ‘‰ Am I worried about my health?! ❌ Hell no ❌
I'm worried I'm becoming unloveable πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ
The concern for health amongst "getting fat" is literally the farthest thing from my mind.
F A R T H E S T. Which is probably how A LOT of us think when we're looking at bigger bodies!!!
When I noticed I gained weight I did the following things:
1. I went out for brunch, ordered pancakes AND French toast πŸ₯žπŸžπŸ―
2. Caught up on emails.
3. Complimented everyone I was chatting to that day.
4. Cleaned up my room.
5. Listened to @kendricklamar πŸ’–
6. Drank water.
7. Argued with spiritual ppl who believe spirituality can erase mental illness (like what?!)
8. Told myself how proud I am for travelling by myself for the first time.
9. Booked a reso to a restaurant tonight for me and my bestie!!!!!
10. Went to bed early.
Notice how I didn't ONCE punish myself?!
Wanna know fucking why?!!!!!!!
I am not a number.
I am NOT a number.
I am NOT A number.
🚫 Numbers aren't with me when I am sharing secrets with friends.
🚫 Numbers aren't with me when I'm conquering something for the first time.
🚫 Numbers aren't with me when I was able to do my first full push up ever!!!
🚫 Numbers aren't with me when someone on here tells me that I helped save their fucking life.
🌷 The amount of space I take up in the world is never holding me back from experiencing all the life has to offer!!!!! 🌷
I am going to the gym today, nothing about my routine is changing, I'm going because I love love LOVE moving with my body, not to punish it for all the amazing memories it had in NY!!!!!!
πŸ™… I would take back ANY of them!!!! πŸ™…
Esp not sharing cookies w @iskra.
Esp for making @hayleywilbur take me to the kitchen of @mic so I could have a granola bar.
Esp for the bagel and shmear w @abertan!!!!!
Esp for the impossible veggie burger w my love @dothehotpants!!!!
And the pizza and fruit and egg sammies, I am not taking back any of it!!!
I love my memories, my body and everything in between.
Recovery fucking WIN. πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜

(Gasp I know multiple posts within just a few hours, hi hello πŸ™‹)
For today's #selflovebootcamp we explore the topic of the dreaded thigh gap. These posts still get to me! Even after a year on this journey.
But, here we go πŸ˜…πŸ’•
I'm so grateful that last year I came across @nourishandeat and @bodyposipanda because I DID have that goal, I wanted to take up less space in the world and I wanted to be thin in the right spots and "phat" in the right spots.
❌ Turns out my body isn't made out of plastic parts and I couldn't transfer fat from my thighs to my boobs or ass ❌ (at least not w out a lot of money and time πŸ’°πŸ•‘)
I didn't know #mermaidthighs could be celebrated because I never ever saw that shit being embraced until I SEARCHED FOR IT. 🐠🏝🌈
Guess what!
You're allowed to take up space in the world, you're allowed to have knocked knees and big thighs.
You're allowed to gain weight.
You're allowed to not just have weight gain in the "acceptable" places.
You're allowed to not fit into the status quo and still feel fly as fuck.
⚑️ You make the rules ⚑️
Happy Monday my fellow babes.
#thunderthighs #bigthighsbighearts

Starting the day off like *~ no fux given ~*

For this #selfiesunday of our #selflovebootcamp, I wanted to share this gem of life. Who's words made me think deeply about the concept of beauty. Read and share in the comments about these beautiful words.
πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡ @the_feeding_of_the_fox
What the hell is beauty anyway? And why are we so bloody desperate to MEASURE something we can't even define? Because that lamp on your bed side, that you think is so beautiful, I think it's ugly. And the colour on my living room wall genuinely offends many of my friends, but I adore it.
If I say something is beautiful, that's makes it so. If I say my lumps and scars and folds are beautiful, that makes it so.
Who wants to live in a world where we limit what beauty is? Where we try and contain beauty in tiny little boxes? Where beauty is the same thing over and over? Beauty is undefinable and uncontrollable, it is an experience, not a thing.
Make your own rules, define your own beauty, dismantle the boxes, break out of the mound and start to realise that beauty is about what you see and no one else. β€’

Got the pleasure of hanging out w this babe, she made me feel good. Like wow good, ultra cool good, froyo good.
Thanks @dothehotpants for everything you do.

For our #effyourfearfoods Friday, I'm gonna share with you just a tinsy bit of my relationship with Vegan foods.
I have had an off and on relationship w veganism, even tho I'm majorly plant based, I'm not 100% #vegan.
I'm ok w that and any bullying or calling me a murderer in the comments will get instantly deleted.
I come from having an eating disorder, which means veganism can be a complexity in my head, one which you the reader are not there for.
Because of our fucked up #dietculture I am still unlearning that FAT IS ACTUALLY NOT BAD FOR YOU, THAT YOU CAN EAT CARBS FREELY, that the combination of the both does wreck havoc on MY system.
Most vegan alternatives have high amounts of fat and/or carbs in them, they're tasty but sometimes they scare that fatphobic part of my brain believing if I eat this I will gain weight = gaining weight won't make me loveable = I can't do that, I need to be loved.
Truth is, all of that is BS. It's far more simple (which also intrinsically entwined w complexity bc EACH body and mind is different) and vegan alternatives trigger me less and less, choosing them more and more.
Also, I don't need tips on how to choose more vegan products, why I should be 100% vegan, why you believe what I'm doing isn't good enough. I'm chill thanks βœŒοΈπŸ€˜πŸ€™
Do your own thing with your body and your mind. I respect you.

So, you're in the change room right? I know, *dread*
Trying on a pair of pants which you've only seen on women size 00-2.
They fit you oddly, pulling in some areas, resting and giving in others.
They gape in the spots they're not supposed to.
They restrict and show the spots they're supposed to "hide."
You get frustrated with your body, "why can't you just be like the women you see? Why can't you just be one of them? Why can't you do anything other than be what you are?"
Then you step out of your body. ⚑️
You remember the earth is 4.5 BILLION YEARS OLD.
Then you realize the universe is approximately 14 BILLION YEARS OLD.
And you remember that you're star dust, that none of this really matters, that all you really wanna do in life is wear the shit you wanna wear and feel dope as fuck in it.
So you buy the fucking pants because they actually look amazing on your star dust body, that your cells deserve to be celebrated because they come from an unfolding billion year process, that you deserve to feel fucking stoked on the odds of being a conscious human.

I knowwwww I've been sucking at showing you guys what I'm doing in NY but that's bc I'm having too much fun and forgetting to take my phone out!!!!!
I met this babe today, I was happy and stoked. I like her, a lot.

Happy Mother's Day.
To all moms.
To all mom bodies.
To non biological moms.

To the future people who will take care of us.
To anyone who needs love today.
