Choose Your Hard

Conquer Your Fears

Losing weight is hard. Meal Prep is hard. The workouts are hard. Staying consistent is hard. Resisting crappy foods is hard.

Choose Your Hard


Being overweight is hard. Having no self-esteem is hard. Feeling depressed is hard. Having stomach problems is hard. Not sleeping is hard. Having no energy is hard. Having health risks is hard.


Self Love



🍺
Real talk guys, I was at a very low point on the left. This was taken in Vegas, and at that point in my life I was a super carbaholic (for reals), drinking and eating my way through college without any care as to what I was doing to my body and self esteem. I know that can come off as sarcastic, and I am a very sarcastic person, but I feel like a lot of that stems from lack of self confidence. I've gotten a lot better, but I used to just make fun of myself, call myself albino and unable to wear bathing suits because I would blind others.  I would put a pillow over my stomach whenever I sat (this has become a habit), wear leggings with flowy dresses over them at the beach, all my clothes were basically black. This might all seem minor, but when you used to look in the mirror everyday and want to cry when you saw your reflection, that makes you start thinking. 


Beachbody Transformation


It's a long road, it's a tough one, but it's sure as hell worth it--for your health, for self love, for your relationships, for your future. I want to shout at anyone going through this, that you are SO LOVED, but that only does so much when you don't believe it yourself--I get it. Just make little steps, celebrate small victories, and work on loving yourself everyday. It's not easy to say affirmations everyday, face fear, eat more plants, whatever it may be... it will be tough, but it will be worth it! 



Choose your hard!

I choose being vegan, I choose balance, I choose workouts 6 days per week, I choose to work on myself daily, I choose to be the best I can be, I choose consistency which leads to healthy habits, which in turns leads to a healthy life.

What do you choose?
