Breaking Bounderies

Why is it that as a society we have this overall view of who large women are "supposed to be"? That they shouldn't be working in fashion or any public place where they're body is seen, or they get bombarded with stares and secretive comments? This happens all the time, it's happened to me plenty of times, if you have a problem with how I look or what I wear I would much prefer you to come up to me and voice your opinion instead of whispering it in secret like a bully and a coward. Our country prides it's self on being a "fit" and "health conscious" nation, but we use that as a front. When we really should be education children from elementary level on how to properly care for their body and health, through nutrition and consistent, habit forming excersize. Excersize shouldn't be a task, it should be second nature. The small simple things can change your life, you can park farther away in a parking lot, or instead of rewarding your child with food, reward them with something healthy from an early age to help form that habit.
When I feel like I deserve a reward, my mind immediately goes for candy, or a movie. When a salad or taking a walk with my dog is much more rewarding and makes me feel better. We as a society need to stop criticizing people for their apperance, and start encouraging them to be healthy. Obviously, someone can't form permanent habits for anyone but them selves, but one little complement can completely change how a person feels about them selves. I am going to challenge all of you to find someone, and ask them to go on a walk with you. Invite them to dinner, and only serve organic food, or just tell someone they look good. I promise you, it will change their day. It might even change their life.

Work it out, Working out

Hi everyone!
I wanted to blog about working out today. I am absolutely in love with it! I work out at least 6 days a week for an hour. The first week was absolute hell, I was so sore that I couldn't even move. Walking to the bathroom was painful, let alone going the next day to work out even more, it was hard to even think about. But I pushed my self, and got through it, and now if I'm not at the gym monday through thursday at 6 pm, then I start getting nervous! Working out is becoming habitual, which in the long run, is a very useful tool.
My favorite part of working out is feeling the burn in your muscles after weight lifting, or running. If someone told me 2 months ago that I would be working out 6 out of 7 days of the week, I would have laughed in their face. My point is, that ANYONE can change their life, if you truly have the motivation and drive, anything is possible. There is a quote that I believe represents exactly what I'm going through:
"Change happens when the pain of staying the same is greater than the pain of change."
-Anthony Robbins

Thank you guys for reading, I'll leave you with an instagram from earlier this week, It's always intimidating walking into the weight room surrounded by men who's arms are the size of my head
