Selfie Sunday 2.0

Welcome to the second Weekly Selfie Sunday!  These Selfies have turned out to be way more inspiration than I ever imagined.  On my long run I passed the time looking at the names of the boats to find the perfect one, and taking the selfie helped give me an extra boost to get out of bed for my very early morning run!

I would love for you to post your Sunday Selfies in the comments. If you want to strip the personal information from your pictures (like I do) scroll to the bottom of this post for easy step by step instructions!

Edit – even better, easier, and more thorough than what I was using before, just use FileMind QuickFix!

The Fat Activism Conference Is Back!  

This is a virtual conference so you can listen to the talks by phone and/or computer wherever you are. Whether you are looking for support in your personal life with family, friends, healthcare providers etc. or you’re interested in being more public with your activism with blogging, petitions, protest, projects, online activism, or something else, this conference will give you tools and perspectives to support you  and your work, and to help you make that work intentionally intersectional and inclusive, so that nobody gets left behind.

    I’ve been telling Joseph about your Ironman and he thinks you’d be a good American Ninja Warrior.
