In today’s society we are bombarded with images and ideals of what we as women should look like according to the media. A lot of these models that are featured on the cover of the latest magazines are not always a healthy weight for everyone!

Not only are they airbrushed and made to appear as if they have no flaws, which is a complete fantasy, but it can make women feel as if this is a standard we all should live up to.

The question we all need to ask ourselves is what does healthy look like for me? For each of us, it may be very different in our appearance and that is o.k.! As we get older we realize that our health is what really matters, not what size we are or how we look in our bathing suit. read more

If there is any frustration involved or I’m constantly “looking” for change in my physical body, then that is a red flag for me.

How to get lasting results from exercise may seem like an obvious answer, keep working out, duh! Well as easy as that may sound putting it into practice everyday can be a challenge.
