Competition










Comparison steals our Happiness. 

We either find ourselves lacking,or we make ourselves superior which leads to arrogance. Either way we cheat ourselves.

There's no magic trick or silver bullet to loving your body. 
You can buy all the supplements, workout programs, and diets out there. You can throw your money at personal trainers, doctors, and self help books - and you still won't find the happiness you seek. 

Loving your body, loving yourself, and finding happiness is NOT outside of you. It is not hiding in weight loss, cute yoga pants, or at the mall. 


It starts INSIDE of you. Once I learned this, I began to find health through loving my body by feeding it well and working out the way I wanted to. No extremes, just balance and what felt good. 


Can you do this too? Eat well, live well, move.

Why are women notorious for tearing each other down? What is with the comparison, judgment and competition? 

Let's stop talking about what is the ideal Body, and celebrate each other's successes. 

I remember when I first started out on my fitness journey - many people made sarcastic remarks, made fun of me for starting a blog, and doubted my ability to get fit. A girl once LAUGHED at me when she found out my bodyfat. Seriously.

Why are we so critical of each other? Too curvy, too fat, too thin, no ass.... If you're busy being so critical of others, how do you treat yourself in your own mind?

Empower yourself to love your body. 

Losing 5 pounds, having amazing abs, or toned thigh does NOT make you a better person. The real beauty starts within.

Love your own body. appreciate others. And get over it.
This is not a competition. There are no winners. 

This year I resolve to LOVE my body no matter what shape it is- by eating well, being happy, and staying healthy in my thoughts and body.

How about you? Go shape yourself.
