Both pictures are A.) of me B.) taken this week and C.) UNTOUCHED. After running the B2B this weekend I had a *very* hard time coming to terms with the fact that I am not in the running shape I used to be, running the slowest splits of any race OR workout I ever have run in my entire life. And THEN these pictures came out and I had a full on meltdown. As someone in recovery for an eating disorder, seeing myself like this was difficult, not to mention meltdown inducing. After a few tears, some deep breaths, and a double with @megcutter at @revecycling I was able to settle in and appreciate what my body allows me to do every single day. It’s not like the girl on the left has a six pack or the girl on the right looks really unhealthy, but if just one person who struggles with body image/disordered eating sees this and realizes that he/she isn’t alone or “crazy” for some of the thoughts he/she has at times, then this won’t have been posted in vein. . #neda #bodypositivity #takeabreath #loveyourself

This past weekend I had the immense pleasure of watching these two lovebirds tie the knot. I left the weekend with such a full heart, so many new friends, and a unique appreciation for “Like A Prayer.” Thank you @mellygee30 and @vincent.mariano for allowing me to be part of such an incredible union. Sending all of my love across the pond to you both.
“Maybe that’s enlightenment enough: to know that there is no final resting place of the mind; no moment of smug clarity. Perhaps wisdom...is realizing how small I am, and unwise, and how far I have yet to go.” Thank you. For everything.

RIGHT: photo taken today after a killer sweat sesh.. .LEFT: retouched photo that I did because I wanted all of you reading this to think that’s what I actually look like.... As someone who struggled with an eating disorder for over a decade, and has become a preacher of self love and acceptance, I couldn’t really believe that I found myself poking and prodding at my thighs and waist before it felt like an acceptable version of myself to share on social media. I am not a celebrity or influencer, so a #bodypositivity post here might not be the most impactful, but this is my way of holding myself accountable and not contributing to such a toxic culture. #loveyourbody #bodypositive #loveyourself #nedawareness
*~2 blessed 2 B stressed~* So very grateful for these incredible women, who are a constant reminder that good music, great people, and a little sweat can fix just about anything 💪🔥❤️ @revecycling 📷: @meredithperdue
