What To Do When Your Confidence Wavers

The truth about confidence is that it’s all about balance and figuring out how to handle the days when you just don’t have it. It’s like what they say about courage; courage isn’t being brave all the time, courage is knowing when and how to face your fears – and then facing them even when […]

5 Secrets to Unleashing Your Confidence

I am a very confident person. Even on rough days, bloated days, and yucky days, I can still feel pretty confident about myself. But, I definitely have not always been that way.

Stop Punishing Yourself! Make Exercise Fun Again!

I used to punish my body with exercise. I would work myself so hard I almost couldn’t function. I struggled with eating disorders and spent about 8 hours a day working out. Even though I picked activities I thought I enjoyed, I used those activities as a way of trying to force my body to […]

He bravely put himself out there to be accountable to his message of self-love. For whatever reason this brought up […]

Closet Revamp!

I firmly believe that a big part of day to day confidence is looking your best. I’m not suggesting plastering your face with makeup or wearing high end clothes… but taking care of yourself and dressing/presenting yourself in a way that makes you feel good and feel confident.

Has a Workout Ever Made You Cry?!

So, now that I’m officially diagnosed, on correct medicine and almost functioning at my full energy, I’ve been able to start exercising again. YAY! After a year of trying to get Daniel to join me in my Beachbody Challenge he did one of the workouts with me and really fell in love with Insanity: Max 30. […]

Fat Shaming, The Obesity Epidemic, and a Sizeless Beauty Standard

I recently posted this article about Tess Munster to my Facebook page. I love Tess Munster and it has nothing to do with her size. She is beautiful and it has nothing to do with her looks. She is a genuinely awesome person who wants people to be able to love themselves no matter where […]
