The Power of Habits

Natalie Hodson Lacing Shoes

"A nail is driven out by another nail. Habit is overcome by habit." -Desiderius Erasmus I have learned that, for me, my motivation comes in cycles. I have noticed that a few times each year I go through a couple weeks where I lose that motivation and desire to workout.

Self-acceptance was a long journey for me. Once I learned that my self-worth was so much more than just my outer shell ...[Read More]

The One Thing That Has Helped My Naturally Bigger Legs Look Better

Squats

  I naturally have bigger legs. It's just the way I was born. Do you want to know the one thing that has helped them look better? Lifting heavy.

I used to get really intimated doing these exercises, but after time I got much more comfortable. If you have a ...[Read More]
