Nothing should ever stop you from having iced milk tea at your local cha chang teng. Not even #plasticfreejuly! Say it proudly, or if you are shy, show the waiter this card. //
走 (zao2) means ‘leave’. In local lingo, it means ‘leaving something out’. It works with other items in your order at eateries too. //
I knew I wanted to do a set of flash cards for Plastic Free July. Let me know what phrases you want me to do next! /

I think I unfortunately have a lot of internalized fat-phobia. I’m all about celebrating all types of body sizes and shapes and functionings until it comes to my own. “Fat is okay unless it’s me”. And that thought is problematic. By judging my own fatness, I’m inherently judging someone else’s because how can I claim to accept and appreciate all bodies if I don’t accept and appreciate my own?
Like, I’m saying that fat is okay with the exception of me, but if that’s true, then fat isn’t 100% okay. And the thing is, there IS health and beauty at every size. It’s okay to be chubby. It’s okay to have fat. It’s okay to be human. And remember to talk to yourself as you would to someone else. Be less judgmental of yourself because your words affect more people than just yourself. Because we get caught up in, “well if she thinks she’s XYZ, then what does she think about *me*?!”
I’m not sure if I’m explaining this in the way it makes sense in my head.
TLDR be less judgmental and more accepting of yourself and others.

Saw my weight for the first time in nearly two years. I’m upset and angry and NOT taking it out on my body. It’s not the problem. It’s never been the problem.
I desperately want to be back in my old body. The one that was always in pain, always fatigued, always an indication to others that I was hurting.
But I will use my words instead of my body:
I am hurting. I’m depressed. I am so painfully lonely. I have no idea what I want to do with my future and I want to give up. I sometimes think that there’s no point in living if living means it’s going to be like this. AND I still hold out hope because I’ve seen so many “it gets better” posts by others that have been in my shoes. Surely I’m not an exception to this phenomenon. (I’m still a special snowflake, though @dialecticallee @likethestream).
This too shall pass.

Sundays were made for squishing your toes in the sand 👣 and speaking of feet in the sand, how aware are you about your carbon foot print? It’s something we’ve been thinking a lot about lately and honestly, there’s a lot we could be doing better as a business and as regular ppl, but the important thing is to start ☝️ So if you’ve been feeling the pressure to live an eco lifestyle, fret not! Everyone starts somewhere

Booch! Second fermentation began today with elderflower, cherry, and grape flavorings. I'm also trying a few big bottles of plain with a teaspoon of sugar each to help with carbonation. One plain, no sugar, to compare. Also trying much fuller bottles to reduce the space for oxygen. Hoping for fizzy with no explosions! *PS have SCOBYs, will share!

REMOVING my dreads. I put them in less than a year ago because I always had an image of myself wearing them. I enjoyed people instantly knowing I wasn’t main stream and liked that my appearance had that conversation without me needing to. I had some inner agitation about what I was hearing about Cultural Appropriation at the time, but justified it away knowing that Vikings had their hair this way and I have drops of that blood.. 🤦‍♀️
A newer and wiser version of myself understands now that some boundaries we just hold out of respect. Maybe it doesn’t cause stress to black folks around me, but maybe it does. I don’t want to add to any racial burdens simply because of my hair, that’s just against how I live my values. So here I go, I’m guessing a week plus of pick out work.
Thank you @wildmysticwoman for waking me up.

I woke up late again and threw something in my lunch box for dinner tonight lol. I’m having two frosted sugar cookies, and tortilla chips with guacamole. I’ve been trying to do two things today: 1) not restrict my calories during the day, thus NOT leading to an overwhelming night of eating what I missed and feeling triggered to compensate, and 2) honor my body—tonight I had a cookie at work to make it so I didn’t have to eat as much tonight (trying not to restrict) and I also went on break 40 minutes early because I was hungry for dinner (honoring my body).
This is very off from my schedule. I’m bad with spontaneously eating something. (I’m bad with spontaneity in general.) It’s upsetting, but I know that if I want my body to trust me, I need to trust my body. That means listening and acting on its cues as best I can. That also means eating when I know I *should* eat (because my hunger and fullness cues are not quite back yet, but we’re getting there).

Recovery is confusing because it starts very structured to break old bad habits. But then as you work towards intuitive eating, things get muddy. I’m at an awkward place where I still need a meal plan, but I need to work on more spontaneity and flexibility. It’s confusing—at times, overwhelming. But I’m working on it.

🌏 Sustainable Swap Sunday 🌏
.
.
You may be confused to see that today’s swap is actually from one sustainable product to another. But it’s the story behind this post which is important. I’m going to be honest with you 🙋🏼‍♀️ there was a point when I thought I was never going to find a zero waste deodorant that worked for me. 🤷🏼‍♀️🗑️
.
.
I started with @lush T’eo which didn’t agree with my skin, @lush then kindly offered to swap this bar for Aromaco which was better and gentler, but I found the solid bar difficult to apply. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE lush, their products and values and know plenty of people who swear by these bars, but our bodies are all different and what works for one doesn’t always work or another! 🌏💆🏼‍♀️
.
.
At this point I thought there really wasn’t a deodorant that could work as effectively as my old spray deodorant until @plasticfreedom_ popped @kutis_skincare Lemongrass and Tea tree deodorant in the post for me 🍋📦 it’s much creamier, easier to apply, in compostable packaging and most importantly effective on the armpits! 🙋🏼‍♀️✌🏼
.
.
Basically, what I’m trying to say is don’t give up on the sustainable lifestyle! It takes time to find the products that work for you, and even I struggle at times, but when you find the sustainable items that suit your lifestyle is feels FANTASTIC! Check out my #sustainableswapsunday and @plasticfreedom_ you’re struggling to find your sustainableswap inspo! How many swaps have you had to do until you found the right product? More than me? 🌏✌🏼

Who gets excited about rainy days like me?? 🌧️🌧️ Because I get to show off my reusable umbrella case!! The water-absorbing interior feels like the most comfy toilet mats 😂. The zippers are the ones that are waterproof, like those you find on Lululemon backpacks.
.
I’ve only been using it couple times and feel SO LIBERATING ⭐️💥- no more looking for plastic bags in malls and dropping umbrellas in MTR or buses. This bag is heavier than disposable plastic bags for sure, but they are handy and won’t break midway leaving my bag all wet.
.
What’s better? I don’t have to throw away one-time use plastic bags that ends up in landfill for 1000 years.
.
Click the location for the online shop that I buy the case from! They don’t seem to have an IG account so here’s the link: https://eshop.eco-greenergy.com/products/eco-umbrella-bag

Eating disorder vs recovery.

Literally the only “plus” to the eating disorder is losing weight. But, as I hope to continue getting this truth out, weight loss is not necessarily is good thing. (There are medical reasons that some people have that means they need to lose weight, but for most people that diet, they don’t *need* to lose any weight.)

Recovery has brought me true happiness and freedom, and although it’s extremely hard not to right now, I’m not giving that up.

Remember to live by your VALUES and *not* by your EMOTIONS.

"Tanks may roll, but small figures will stand up for a crucial moment in front of them"

This image has always resonated with me. From an early age my biological father instilled in me a strong sense of equality and to stand up against oppression - and for that I'll always be grateful.

We may feel small but together we are mighty.

~ this is incredible!!! I’m also stoked to say my skin care, Joyōme, is _truly_ cruelty free as well as scientifically proven to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, increase hydration by 100%, even out skin tone and redness. Believe me, I’m one that has had these results in 60 days!

What do you value? Do you know what you value? Do you live by said values? I value authenticity. I think embracing who we truly are is one of the most important things in the world. I think staying genuine and true to yourself is one of the hardest yet most fulfilling things you can ever do. 💞 I value balance. I love days where I do Kundalini Yoga and meditate and journal and align; and I also love days where I curl up on the couch and watch Grey’s Anatomy all day. Both give me equal amounts of joy. 💖 I value freedom. When we embody freedom, we get the gift of being who we truly are at a soul level. We get to do whatever makes our heart sing. We aren’t tied down by anyone or anything. We have the freedom to choose. I value the freedom to choose to do what I love, and nothing less. 🙏 I value fun; because really if we aren’t having fun, what the hell are we doing? ✨ These are just a few of my values. I remind myself of them constantly. I try to act in a way that aligns with them. I encourage you to become clear on what it is you value, and if you already know, to begin taking inventory of your actions. Is what you’re doing aligning with what you value? Are you living the life you so desire? What small shifts can you begin to make to align with your values? ❤️🙏💖

Lovely blog post from @takeitupwearitout about last weeks event #Repost @takeitupwearitout
・・・
I spend a lot of time writing about sustainability in the fashion industry, while quietly worrying about unsustainable practices in my own industry. Fortunately other costume professionals felt the same, so if you head over to my blog (link in bio) you can read my write-up of the Designing the way to Sustainable Costume event I went to last week. Featuring Oscar-winning designer Jacqueline Durran, @thecostumedirectory founder Sinead O’Sullivan, Orsola de Castro of @fash_rev and Charlie Ross from @offset_warehouse this was a fascinating look at how I can be more sustainable in my working life.

I know I don't talk about veganism as much as I used to, but trust I'm still very much vegan af... and I still eat weird shit 😂 As I've become more (painfully) aware of the issues going on in our world, (particularly those issues faced by marginalized groups) I've become less inclined to align myself with single-issue activism. I'm morally against the use of humans and animals for monetary gain. I denounce all forms of oppression. I will not fund the exploitation of any living being if I can avoid it. I'm not perfect, but I do my best. I'm vegan because I'm against ALL oppression - not just one kind. I want to live as compassionately as possible, and I extend that compassion to all beings ❤️

Honesty hour with a TW

Today I woke up late and essentially missed breakfast. Then I decided that since I was going to get a drink tonight, I shouldn’t have a big lunch before work. Then at work I got really upset about something I don’t even remember now and threw out my dinner. Then my healthy self kicked in and I had a cookie and a donut hole from work to make up for some of what I missed. Dragging my feet, I picked up this pint after work to get me back on track with my calories. Now I’m pissed because I’m full but still under my meal plan so I have to eat even more. Being full is a huge trigger for me and I’m just having an incredibly hard time sitting with the fullness and not acting on purging urges. I’m having a hard time convincing myself to meet my meal plan given all of this.
I also feel like a fake because I had behaviors/symptoms last week, thus *showing* my therapist that I was hurting, but I’ve yet to have symptoms this week, so “obviously” I’m making this whole eating disorder thing up, I was only in treatment because they felt bad for me, and I’m mentally well and just want attention.
I talked to a friend tonight who reminded me that my eating disorder is still valid even if I don’t act on my urges because it is still causing problems mentally. I can struggle AND not use behaviors. I can have both. #dbt
I’m going to take a break from eating to shower and meal plan (begrudgingly) for tomorrow. Opposite action is a weird thing. I’m both proud of and disgusted with myself. Holding both.

More negative than I would usually share on here. However, I think it’s important to remember that recovery really sucks sometimes AND we can still make good choices. I share the negatives tonight because lately recovery has been hard, and I know I’m not alone in this. AND I hope to be the Healthy Bad Guy tonight and remind y’all (and myself) to not take things out on your body. “Recovery isn’t about what you want; it’s about what you need.” Tonight I need to keep eating, not have symptoms, and go to bed.

I will never understand why people find an urgency to invest in themselves if they can make money from it, but to invest in themselves to save their marriage, or heal from the pain of a relationship or emotional brokenness there’s no urgency unless the pain is dire!!! I guess, until the pain gets so bad they can’t stand it anymore, people will just stay complacent and comfortable!

Just a repost from one of my favorite accounts, @bodyposipanda!

How do you ever learn to trust your body’s cues if you don’t listen to all of them? Your body gives you lots of cues: thirst, restroom, sleep, move...EAT. Do you deny yourself a trip to the bathroom when your bladder’s full just because you “shouldn’t” be needing to pee? So why deny yourself food when your body is telling you you need some nourishment even when you feel like you “shouldn’t” be hungry? I think the goal of most people (especially those in recovery from an eating disorder) is to be able to eat intuitively. But to do so, we need to trust AND honor the cues our bodies are giving us.
Eat when you’re hungry. (And hunger cues aren’t always your stomach. It could be lightheadedness, lack of focus, and more.) Because #dietculturesucks and you’re not a bad person because you’re hungry. Honor those cues. Don’t fight them. It’s the only way to develop mutual trust between your mind and body.

Use your words and not your body. Your words are enough. Use your words and not your body. Your words are enough. Use your words and not your body. Your words are enough. Use your words and not your body. Your words are enough. Use your words and not your body. Your words are enough.

How deep is your love?
🌳🌳🌲🌈💞💥🌏
We were once given a formula for deciding if an action was a good idea or a bad one. Ask yourself if everyone did the same (fill in the action) what would the collective result be?
Constructive or destructive?
It’s easy to tell yourself it’s okay because it’s just you....but if you layer the “everybody” aspect, what happens?
This stops me from picking flowers in communal spaces, taking things that aren’t mine and has me saying nice things to people in public.
We really are a we.
We really are the trees.
Might as well wait for the tree to die before harvesting. This greedy impatience crap is not the wave of the future.

Headed to the pool! We’ve been at lessons everyday this week and today they are gonna show me what they have learned. I honestly don’t love the pool, don’t know how to swim and am not the most comfortable in a bathing suit. But, since kids I have to learn to enjoy the pool, take some lessons and have no mind space to care about my bathing suit (it just needs to cover well cause it gets yanked on A LOT and be stay put cause I am never just lounging in it). .
This outfit is all a desperate quick purchase from @target 3 years ago when I needed a suit ASAP and none of my pre baby ones fit and I thought they would!🙄I have my eyes on some ethically made ones from @hackwithdesign and @prana only cause I hate this skirt situation but, have to wear it cause the bottom of this one piece does not stay put.

Have you ever noticed that you don’t feel bad spending a little extra on the things that matter to you?
.
I went to the grocery store this morning because we were OUT OF COFFEE 😱 and how did I let that happen?! As I stood there hoping the smell of coffee would keep me awake, I noticed the Giant Eagle brand and the @benttreecoffee brand side-by-side, $6.99 vs. $10.99.
.
A lot of people would NOT be about that $4 price difference, and that’s fine! But for me, it’s important that I help my local economy whenever I can by supporting awesome businesses in my area. Do I do it with everything I buy? Nope. But I try to make it a priority and have zero regrets about that choice ✨
.
What about you? Where do you feel good spending a little more? .

Tonight I let myself be triggered for a moment when listening to my coworkers talk about how bad they were and how they lacked willpower and yadda yadda yadda. I used those comments as an excuse to use extreme means to lose weight because, as in my story, I had a cookie so by their logic, I was “bad”.
But that’s such BS. I am not better or worse of a person for eating a cookie when I was hungry for a cookie at work. Thinner is not better. Fatter is not worse. It’s natural to crave foods with higher sugar and fat contents, and you’re not a bad human for wanting a dang cookie every once in a while. And I have a feeling that if you eat the cookie when you want it, it’ll be better than obsessing for hours over not eating it. Your body can handle a cookie here or there. Your arteries aren’t going to clog up the second you swallow a bite of your bakery good. You good boo. And so I won’t use this as an excuse to destroy my body.

I pulled this dress out of my pregnancy clothes bin! In •>>>>>Discovering my Style<<<<<•post (link in profile) I talked a bit about how I didn’t really buy a lot of pregnancy clothes, I just used what had in my closet because most of it was all dresses that my belly just grew into. This dress was one of those. I only remembered I still had it when I was writing the post and it still fits (slightly stretched) and in my color palette. I’ve had it for at least 12 years and I don’t know who made it, but maybe @oldnavy can tell me #whomademyclothes cause that’s where I bought it. And I am back to wearing my #nisoloshoes after stretching them out by wearing them with socks around the house (torture).
