To be a fit #badass is not about being skinny. 🙅🏻 It’s about being HEALTHY and being FIT based on YOUR unique body shape, goals, and genes. Other people can inspire you, but don’t compare yourself to them. They had a unique journey, and so do YOU! Confession time. Oh boy, did I used to compare myself to other people! I would pick myself apart. And I still need to remind myself not to. I’ve always hated the fact that I will always have cellulite and that my biggest problem area is my lower abs and outer hips.

Wanna know how I’ve learned how to deal with negative people? Through personal development and surrounding myself with people who lift me up and vice versa! Over the past few years, I’ve really started soaking up as much personal development resources as possible.  And I’ve recently started sharing some of the things I’m learning in my newsletter. So why not also do that here! Personal Development opens up a new world of possibilities for growth! And I think it’s much better to be a better YOU all-around than to have a 6-pack. Don’t you agree?
