Fitness on Sunday's!


Peace, Body, and Mind. Three key ingredients to a healthier more confident you. For me, being confident with my changing body is like every other girls struggle. There is just so much changing about your body that it is overwhelming. I could literally write a book on what the girl on the other side of the glass looks like and how we aren't one in the same. Life is like that. So is your body. Once you hit those dreaded but exciting teenage years you start to fill out as my mom would say. You start to get boobs, hips, weight, and curves. You start to look more like a woman and less like a girl. It can be terrifying. My mom tells me consistently that the body I am getting is meant for me. It's the perfect fit. I've gone through it and I'm sure many others have.

I've obsessed over my own body for years. Wondering why I didn't look like someone else or why no one really looked like me. It's hard when you can tell that most women are skinny and I knew it wasn't true but it's what you notice. So I struggle with it. If you asked my parents, they'd tell you that I always complain about it.

So for my Peace, Body, and Mind, which was created by the Writer's for Seventeen Magazine, to help girls all over realize that they need to lift each other up and love our bodies. I will admit. I hate my hips. They really drive me crazy but somehow I know my mom is right. My body is still changing. I'm not sure when I'll be done changing since I'm only nineteen but I have to learn to accept what I have and use it. I should help other girls do the same and support the Girl Power.

So that is all I have for today.
