You can live a happy, fulfilled life no matter what your body currently does or doesn’t look like. You don’t need to lose another 10 lbs, fit into a certain size, or have a 6 pack in order to achieve your dreams.
.
What if we took a step back & instead of obsessing over every little detail about our bodies & being miserable about it, we chose instead to fill ourselves up with the things that fulfill us & make us happy, & used our bodies for a purpose other than trying to make them look pretty? That doesn’t mean that you can’t focus on your fitness goals. But when we begin to place our happiness within instead of outside of ourselves & on making random body parts look a certain way (like you’re really not gonna let yourself enjoy delicious food in favor of making your stomach look a certain way?! No thanks 🙅🏻‍♀️ I’ll take my curves 😂💃🏻), you will see that taking care of yourself in a loving way instead of trying to fit society’s body standards (which, by the way, only 5% of women naturally look like what we see in the media), will become a natural extension of living a bigger life.
.
In the words of Disney, dream big. Letting go of body obsession frees you up to be happy, & in being happy, your body will take care of itself. You’ll want to eat the healthy foods & find your balance, exercise to feel good, & change the perception of your body. Focus on the big picture & start wherever you are. You’re worthy of whatever it is that you desire.

You better believe I had one of those blueberry scones this weekend... but getting back at it this week with daily workouts & meal prep of lean meats & a TON of veggies!! #bridalbrunch #liveyourhealthy

Tonight my body was desperate for some carbs and protein to help fuel me through the week. So we've got pasta with kale, lemon chicken, salt, pepper, and garlic. Delish! #getinmybelly #food #liveyourhealthy #liveyourhappy #postworkoutdinner

Day 1 of the @healthyisthenewskinny 21 day challenge is complete 👏🏻 with a 45 minute spin class 🚴🏻‍♀️ I was trying to take a pic flexing my arm 💪🏻, & since I don’t have anyone following me around with a camera & I’m tired of Instagram’s standards of “perfection,” I said F it & decided to post this anyway because it’s real & it’s me.
.
I could’ve had every excuse in the book to not work out. I’ve been up since 4:30, tired, sore AF from yesterday’s workout, but I made the commitment to myself by signing up for this challenge once again, & I couldn’t fail myself, especially when there are over 1200 of us doing this 🙌🏻
.
Each time I work out, it’s a chance to prove to myself that I’m stronger than my PCOS, fibromyalgia, & the incessant dieting & binge eating I’ve dealt with for most of my life. I’m not the little girl who always got picked last in gym class anymore. I’ve learned to face my inner demons & overcome them, one step at a time.
.
The reason I love the HNS community so much is because the women are like minded & @katiehwillcox is so real & down-to-earth. It’s not a community, like others I’ve attempted to belong to, where women obsessively track every meal & attempt to look a certain way at the end of 6 weeks. This is about nourishing your mind, body, & spirit & finding a healthy relationship with exercise, food, & your body, which is what was missing from my life & with my relationship to health for so long.
.
The next few weeks are crazy for me too, but I’m going to do my best to get my workouts in each day, because it’s a symbol of the love I’ve learned to have for myself, & that’s ultimately what counts ❤️

Decided to challenge myself with a @solidcore class with @notkatg before the next cycle of the @healthyisthenewskinny 21 Day Challenge 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻 and was literally shaking from head to toe by the end.
.
The first time I ever did a solidcore class 3.5 years ago with @michellesfitnessacct, I’m pretty sure I swore I’d never do one again. It’s the hardest workout I’ve ever done in my life & muscles you never even knew existed come alive 😂
.
But I also like to challenge myself, even if I’m aware that it won’t be the easiest thing I’ll ever do. Solidcore is especially tough for me because I live with chronic daily headache & basically fibromyalgia, so my body already hurts all the time anyway, & sometimes certain exercises make it worse. But I also refuse to let myself be the victim of my body or to not do certain things because of it. I’ve just learned to accept it & move on with my life.
.
It also helps to have super supportive instructors who kick your ass, but are encouraging at the same time, & Kat definitely does that. Will I do solidcore all the time like I do spin? Fuck no 😂 Every once in a while is ok though, & I’m proud of how far along I’ve come on my fitness journey.

Saturday morning spin date with my faves 😍🚴🏻‍♀️ I did two classes back-to-back for the first time ever & damn it felt good 💪🏻 I did it because I know that I’m strong, capable, & can accomplish anything I set my mind to. It wasn’t to try and “burn extra calories,” or to try to get myself to lose weight faster, or because I haven’t worked out in a few days. I did it just because. And that’s ok. It’s ok to move your body without having to gain external validation, but to do it just for yourself because you know that you can. I even upped my weights from 2 lbs to 3 lbs in the second class & felt like a badass because it proved to me that the small changes I’m making towards improving my fitness level are making a difference. No matter where you are in your journey towards health, just know that you can get there - I almost died in the first spin class I ever took years ago! Honor & love yourself wherever you are, and remember that no matter how many times you fall, you can always get back up ❤️❤️❤️

And sometimes you eat some fresh fruit at a #watermelon festival with your people. #liveyourhealthy

I love this so much from Kate Winslet. Growing up she was my favorite actress, probably because she’s curvy & I could finally identify with someone in the media who’s body resembled mine. I even remember getting a dress for one of my dances in high school that resembled one she’d worn when she was promoting Titanic 😂
.
What she says here is so true though. I grew up constantly listening to my mom talking about being on different diets, yo-yoing up & down with her weight, constantly trying to fit into a smaller size. Even to this day she complains about her body, constantly striving to lose weight, telling me how she doesn’t eat sometimes & not understanding why her body doesn’t change. I try to talk to her about what I teach & strive to be the example, but unfortunately she’s set in her ways. It’s no wonder I grew up with similar habits, but I don’t blame her. She hasn’t known any better, but it’s in our power to raise a future generation of girls who think differently. If I ever have a daughter, she will never, ever hear me speak in a negative way towards myself or my body. Remember how you speak to yourself matters, & children are listening. Let’s raise them to be strong girls who have better things to worry about than the way their bodies do or don’t look.

I don’t eat a lot of bread but when I do... #avocadotoast & #mangorumjelly. LOVE some good farmer’s market finds!! #liveyourhealthy

I’m so grateful & happy that today I got to host a workshop on Building Strong Girls at @athleta 🤗💪🏻 The group of girls & their moms were amazing & it was good to help open their eyes to media manipulation & show them that not even the models in the magazines look like the models, before shifting our awareness to self-love & acknowledging that the images that we are being sold are not reality & that nothing outside of us can make us happy...it all has to come from within. At the end of the workshop one of the girls came up to me privately & said “thank you” & gave me a hug. It’s so important for us to teach young girls & demonstrate to them that self-love comes from within & that you are worthy no matter what is being sold to you otherwise.
.
I also want to give a huge thank you to @katiehwillcox @healthyisthenewskinny for being such a positive influence in my life & helping me to craft my message to the girls. I told them about you, HNS’s message, showed them your book, & read them one of the Rumi poems & used one of the meditations to close out our hour together ❤️
.
Each one of us can help make a positive influence on young girls & raise them to be aware of the truth, & I’m so glad that I get to be a part of that 🙌🏻

One of my favorite breakfasts lately ft. Oliver my fave #bostonterrier

1 cup of Greek yogurt, a sprinkle of @purely_elizabeth blueberry hemp granola, fresh fruit, and a drizzle of honey. If I’m super hungry I add a boiled egg for extra protein! #liveyourhealthy #betatobutter

Good workout this morning - made progress on the box squat with 145 lbs and 105 lb Romanian dead lifts. #gettingstronger #liveyourhealthy #womenwholift #bethebestyoucanbe #strengthtraining

Do yourself a favor and try out @waterloosparkling. There is SO much flavor in these sparkling waters!! Such a perfect, refreshing AND guilt-free choice to help you stay #hydrated in this crazy summer heat! #liveyourhealthy

Love love love this so much! You are not what you see in the mirror. You are not defined by body parts. You cannot judge who someone is based off what they do or don’t look like (and why are we so quick to judge anyway? It’s not like you won’t have judgmental thoughts, but be willing to let them go in place of seeing love instead). You are beautiful no matter what is seen by the body’s eyes & what crazy thoughts go through your mind. Embrace your inner strength & beauty. That’s what really counts ❤️❤️❤️
