As women, we have a crap load of pressure. It's honesty time. I am not a size 0 and never will be. If I was even a size 6, I would look gross (just my opinion). I am a tall lady and was not blessed with a natural six pack, nor do I get to that point even when I work my butt off. 

I have a really bad habit of comparing myself to other women, especially other bloggers. Unfortunately gorgeous people who have perfect bodies, do rise to the top faster. You can argue with me, but I am pretty sure it is a fact. With that being said, one of my new years resolutions was to stop comparing and to just be happy.

I am an average gal. I hope that I can connect with my readers who are also just normal women living normal lives. I take pride in that. After being frustrated time and time again I have come to realize that being healthy and being happy is all that matters. At the end of the day I will never be 5'4 with the perfect body. It just won't happen. I am okay with it. I have been called fat and all sorts of mean things in blog posts, Instagram, and on Pinterest. I have learned to laugh at the haters and listen to my body. If I am healthy and happy that is all that matters. 

I think working out is extremely important. Working out and trying to eat healthy has shown to be great for preventing disease and might even add a few years onto your life. Shouldn't that be enough? On top of that, personally I like not being out of breath after going up the stairs and I especially love feeling good from all the healthy food. I challenge and encourage you all to exercise and eat healthy. Even if it's only a few times a week. Try it out. :)

Along with the above suggestions, my last suggestion is dress. This may sound crazy but when I dress like a bum when I work out, I feel like a bum. Cute work out clothes not only give me a little bit of confidence, but it is also motivation to go to the gym. Double win!! My favorite work out clothing comes from Albion Fit. Great quality, and CUTE. Another win-win situation!

Albion Fit has been so kind to give one of my lucky readers a $50 gift card. Trust me when I say once you go with Albion, you will never go back.

Good luck!
