Out of the last 2 months how many of you have woken up, looked at yourself and felt wonderful about you? You!!! Your beautiful body, the mind that lives there and the soul that has carried on and on. How much gratitude goes towards these amazing creations that are YOU? I’m going to guess, not much. Why? Because you had pizza for dinner the night before? Because you didn’t work out? Because you had some wine? Why must we be so brutal with our own selves?? YOU are a miracle. You are divine beauty all wrapped up into skin and organs and bones carried on by a beautiful soul. 

Living and breathing the fitness industry for the past 20 years, I can tell you I’ve seen it all. I’ve seen the 6% body fat bodies and the 26% body fat bodies. Who is happier? Who out of that medium wake up truly happy with themselves. I would like to say NONE but that is being a little dramatic so I’m going to go with 6%. Because your butt sags just a little, because your belly isn’t flat, because your hair isn’t thick and long, because your skin isn’t tan and stretch mark free? Come on!!! Can we please live in reality for a moment and remember that of which you see in magazines and in movies is not real! Your picture of perfection is unrealistic and false. You obsess over chicken and broccoli and an hour of cardio daily? For what? On the other end of that spectrum you don’t exercise and you eat pop tarts for breakfast, lunch and dinner and you want to be happy and energetic? How? Let’s work to find a happy medium. Can we find a place where we love, appreciate and treat our body with happiness and respect? Day by day, bits by bits, let’s make a consorted effort to get there. As an individual or with your village. Get there. However it looks for you. Treat you with respect. 

You are perfection. 

Your body can heal itself no matter how bad you treat it. It will always wake with the true desire to do good, wanting to get you through the day. It really is all it knows. To breathe, eat, move, sleep, smile, think, sweat, appreciate, heal. 

I’m going to get a little dramatic again because that’s kind of my thing but…. WHAT in the FUCK is keeping you in this cycle of self hatred and loathing??? Why would you not absolutely love and adore your body??  Answer that question, please. Take a moment. Take a week. Take a year. But, answer that question. 

Your body is the most advanced miracle of human kind. If it jiggles, if it’s pale, if it fits into a size 20 or a size 2… It is still a miracle. So please, for Unicorn’s sake…. LOVE THAT THING!! With all you have. Then tell me how it’s working out for you. I’d love to hear. 

I accept private messages, texts and megaphones. Get at me.
