Free for Chubbies!

Did chubby used to be a flattering term? Or at least not as offensive? I die for this old Lane Bryant AD I found today.

Whatever. At least someone used to call it like they saw it. Kind of funny, anyone ever watch Weeds? Remember Huskeroos? Just own it. 

Watch this right now.

Huskeroo huskeroo you’re beautiful in all the things you do!!

Discuss amongst yourselves.  This makes me laugh because we take ourselves too seriously, we do not educate ourselves or our children on how to eat properly, and we are addicted to decadence. AND I personally just showered in some chips’n queso from Baja Betty’s, so I am not even trying to judge.  I am just sayin’, I wish we cared a bit more about nutrition for ourselves and the youth, and I wish when we had a cookie we just were okay with it.  Because we work hard enough as it is.

And don’t get me wrong, I don’t blame society for making me feeling bad in a bikini, I blame myself for just not owning it and/or appreciating the fact that I work hard but I am not perfect. I do hope, wish and work towards a more better, more nutritious world for my children, but that happens one glass of water, one less chip at a time.

In the meantime I do have a delicious veggie burger recipe for all of you who are chubbies at heart, but know and feel eating clean is better for your body and soul.
