What makes me so happy about this is that she isn’t telling you you must love your body or that you are obligated to. She saying you have permission to. And that’s important, because there are a lot of reasons why people have trouble with self-love.  But the idea that you aren’t supposed to love your body, that you aren’t allowed to for whatever reason, needs to be crushed. If you can’t love you body right now, if your body causes you pain or disphoria or distress, you aren’t required to love it. But you are ALLOWED to. You are entitled to the chance to make peace with your body, if you ever reach a point where you are ready to. No one else should be trying to stop you.

Sometimes I see or read things, and I didn’t realize that I needed them until they are two GIFs of Nicki Minaj and some amazing commentary that come across my dash and I instantly burst in to tears and feel a weight lifted off my chest.

This is so important

Anonymous said: Any tips on staying healthy during college? I just finished my freshman orientation and I've already fallen off track when it comes to eating healthy and exercising regularly..


School is weighing on you, course work is kicking your A$$, work is beyond stressful, workout…you dont even have enough time to sleep! let alone workout!…..

So how do you deal?  How do you stay on track and when all you want to do is cry?!

  1. Take a step back: You cant win the war if your running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off, or sitting back in the corner in the fetal position . Focus on what you CAN control.  You HAVE to go to classes, you HAVE to study, you HAVE to go to work…and you HAVE to eat.
Now which of those contribute to weight?? WHAT YOU PUT INTO YOUR BODY.
What are you reaching for when those stress moments arise?
Crazy stressed person number1, reaches for:
  • Chips, cookies
  • fast food
  •  ice-cream
  •  Lives on frozen meals because no time for ANYTHING

Crazy Stressed person number2 reaches for:
  • apples slices with peanut butter
  • yogurt with granola
  • cheese stick with fruit
  •  hummus and veggies
  • ham and cheese sandwich (or veggie if your vegan like me)
Now….do you think those students who are BOTH stressed…would have the same weight gain?? I dont think so.
When you feel like your life is falling apart, and you don’t have time for anything…focus on your food.
Food is powerful. It’s how our bodies LIVE. Make the right choices starting at the grocery store and you will have the tools to help control your crazy life. Will it get you straight A’s and get you a  promotion at work….probably not. BUT you will not feel your pants get tighter, you might even find yourself having to squeeze in time to buy a smaller size. I think I can handle that kind of stress 8)
Grocery Shop  with a healthy goal in mind.
