Rock Solid–Our Girls Camp Message

Rock Solid–Our Girls Camp Message

Back in February, I told my mom about this project I wanted to start–all about helping women achieve better health by learning to love their bodies. I also told her that my sister-in-law, Heidi, was starting the process of becoming a life coach, and that she wanted to help women find more confidence and joy by managing their mental and emotional health. She was excited for both of us, and then excited for herself as a light came on in…

Wean Yourself From Willpower

Wean Yourself From Willpower

Have you ever wondered about those people who can stick with healthy habits? People who exercise daily, year after year? People who eat healthy consistently, not just when they are on a diet? How do they do it? How do they stay motivated? How does their willpower last so long? Let me tell you a secret. They’re not using willpower. WHAT?? They have TONS of willpower, right? No. They’re just really not using it. Not often anyway. So now that…

Thoughts on LDS General Conference *It’s Really All About LOVE*

Thoughts on LDS General Conference *It’s Really All About LOVE*

This past weekend was so amazing! I always enjoy General Conference, but this year, my kids really got into it and listened, and I was able to just relax and soak it all in. For those who are not LDS, let me explain. Twice a year, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints holds a church-wide general conference. It includes five sessions over two days, and is designed to teach and inspire its members to come unto Christ. We…

Gratitude:The Small Tool for BIG Changes

Gratitude:The Small Tool for BIG Changes

When I was in high school, I went out for the track team. I wasn’t particularly fast, but I found that I could endure pain well enough to be a middle distance runner.

These workouts were great for increasing our speed…

The REAL Reasons I Choose to Love My Body

The REAL Reasons I Choose to Love My Body

There are so many reasons I decided to start Project Love Your Body. I love fitness, nutrition, and living a healthy lifestyle. I love writing, and I love sharing things that I learn. I am also so saddened by the negative body obsession I see in so many women today, and I want to start a movement of women who love their bodies—love them enough to truly respect and care for them. But it’s even bigger than that. I believe…

Love and Improvement

Love and Improvement

I once had someone ask me, “Why aren’t you having dessert? Don’t you know you look great?” I think there are some very misguided beliefs when it comes to making healthy choices. There is the belief that if someone exercises, it is because of some dissatisfaction with their body as it is…If I don’t eat sugar, it must be because I think I’m fat…Making healthy choices is really all about trying to look a certain way… If we truly loved…

Feelings Drive Actions

What’s the big deal about positive thinking? Why is it so important? Sara Maria, author of Love Your Body, Love Your Life, states, “Thoughts are energy and have the ability to influence our psychology and biology in profound ways, either for good or for ill. Thoughts play an integral role in the development of our lives and in the development of our health and well-being, or the lack thereof.” Psychology, biology, development of our lives, health, and well-being?? Sounds like…
