Be Nice!

I'm firm believer in being nice. Not just to others. But to yourself. Think about the things that you say to yourself when you look in the mirror. Would you tell your best friend not to wear those jeans because she looks fat in them? Would you tell your significant other his/her stomach is too flabby to wear a swimsuit? Would you tell your daughter she's disgusting and has chipmunk cheeks? Would you tell even a complete stranger that she'll never be able to fit into her skinny jeans if she keeps eating like a pig? I thought not. So why do we speak to ourselves that way? Think about it... Does it make you feel better about yourself? Does it make you push harder in your workouts? Does it make you choose healthier food options? Of course it doesn't. Negative self-talk does nothing but tear down our self-esteem.

I encourage you to take charge of your thoughts! Be the best that you can be, and LOVE yourself, exactly as you are, right at this moment.
