life is too short to hate your body

What it comes down to is: Life is too short to hate your body. It’s the only one you have; no two bodies are created the same by DESIGN, by NATURE aka it’s a GOOD thing that your body isn’t like any other. Life is also too short to not enjoy foods you love. Nutrition and exercise are about caring for your body, not punishing it for not being something else. If you’re using them as tools to restrict your body and contract your self definition, consider for a second that these things should be fun, a celebration of the beautiful body you were given. If loving your body because you deserve it isn’t enough, consider that your children are looking up to you, learning how to treat their bodies from you, your friends, your family, everyone you encounter. If right now, you cannot do the work for you, do it so that those around you see until you can do it out of love for yourself. Fake it until you make it. But remember that you were not put on this earth for hate and negativity. You and your body were put here for love, and that love begins between the two of you. #EPBfit #EPBeatsalot
