HI I'm Kristen!
I post a lot about my weird boyfriend, our roommates and the DIY projects we get ourselves into (and sometimes want to kill each other over.) I'm a 22 year old pizza, Ice cream and health food enthusiast who loves to run
Don't be shy, I love talking to my followers!

If your body positivity has a weight limit then you’re shitty and I don’t like you

some days you do big things and conquer the universe and other days you’re really proud of yourself for making a spectacular grilled cheese and not killing yourself but either way it’s all good 

a very important post

Hey! I see that you read Brain over binge. :) Was it helpful ? I just finished it and I loved it but I haven't had much opportunities to try this approach. Did you try it and how did it turn out?
health-over-vanity health-over-vanity Said:

Brain over Binge was a huge help for me when I was in the beginning of my recovery!
I would absolutely recommend it to anyone going through an eating disorder or disordered thoughts around food in general. 
She lays it out in such a realistic approach that its easy to grasp and it actually makes sense. 
I tried her approach of whenever I wanted to binge I would stop myself and listen to what was making me do it and idk, I just loved it! I definitely feel like it was part of what helped me through my roughest patch when I was bingeing every day. I slipped up plenty of times though even after reading it but it’s all about trying it again and again even after you slip. Consistency is key and well worth it and now, more than a year after reading it It’s just second nature to me so I say exercise it every chance you get because every tiny bit helps (:

Definitely worth a read for those who struggle with ED’s

  • Getting a 1 hour deep tissue message 
  • followed by a 1 hour facial
  • followed by getting a mani/pedi 
  • followed by returning cloths I bought yesterday to pay for this extravagant lifestyle I’m living today

Just kidding.. kinda
The message & facial are covered by a gift card I got for my birthday and the mani/pedi cost me $20 so I’m just as cheap as always!  
The cloths magically turned ugly as soon as I got them home yesterday and I’d rather have 60$ back in my pocket than a few shirts that I’ll never wear.

Then tomorrow I have a dentist appointment and then Thursday it’s back to work :( 
For someone whose been on vacation I’ve been rather productive!

Happy Tuesday everyone :D 




i think freckles, stretch marks, tattoos, bruises, birthmarks and scars are probably the coolest thing, you started with almost a blank canvas and look at u now, all this evidence that you’ve lived and the sun has shone on you and you’ve grown and maybe tripped up a few times and liked an image so much u made it a permanent part of u, beautiful.

That’s one of the most uplifting things I’ve read

This needs to get passed around more

One dozen cookies. Chocolate chip, peanut butter, snicker doodle. All for me. 🍪🍪🍪 #tiffstreats #cookieoverload #birthday #caloriesdontexistonyourbirthday

  • Today (Sunday) I’m doing the whole birthday lunch thing with the family. not looking forward to.
  • Tomorrow (Monday) me and boyfriend are road tripping to Georgetown to thrift shop!! (:
  • Tuesday I’m going to the dentist :/
  • Then Wednesday I might go get a message because I got a gift certificate for my birthday from boyfriends parents (((:

Then Thursday it’s back to work. This week off is already flying by too fast, make it stop!!!!

Happy pre-birthday to me!🎂😁 #blink182 #birthday

I’m at home visiting family for my birthday that’s tomorrow and me and boyfriend are celebrating it today by aimlessly driving around in the jeep doing pointless things and going to random places and hopefully stopping for lunch somewhere because I’m starving! 

Then tomorrow it’s lunch with the entire family and I always dread that. I hoped to not have to go through it this year but looks like I’m going to have to. Something about having my mom, dad, step mom and all of her family (her parents, brother, sister) all in the same room does not spell fun for me, it just makes for a huge amount of anxiety and drinking my entire weight in Mexican Martini’s to not have to deal with anyone. 
Not that they don’t get along or cause a scene or anything, it’s just a thing this product of divorce has always hated. 

But aside from that, Happy Saturday everyone!!!!!! :D 


you’re allowed to like the way you look. you’re allowed to think that you’re pretty. you’re allowed to like the way you do things. you’re allowed to like your quirks.you’re allowed to do what you want to do. you’re allowed to like your music taste. you’re allowed to like a certain movie. you’re allowed to like your clothing taste. you’re allowed to be yourself. you’re allowed to love yourself. it’s ok. you’re beautiful and don’t let anyone tell you wrong.
