Stop Comparing!

Just a quick video on a couple of points I've been wanting to address- Genetics and comparing yourself to others!


Do you find you look to others for encouragement and motivation, or are you comparing?

  2. I NEEDED to hear this today. I am constantly comparing myself to others and am always feeling that my progress is never good enough. I need to strive to be the best ME that I can be! Thank you for this video.

  3. I'm glad you posted this.. I'm lucky enough to walk around with 6 pack abs, but I think I'll always have cellulite on my thighs and butt. Everyone is different.

  4. Amen! I see quick results in my upper body with moderate effort, but my legs and booty take so much more dedication and PAIN! Even though I was not born with a perfectly balanced and symmetrical body, I do know I'm fit. That makes me feel good.

  6. Thank you so much for posting this! I constantly need to remind myself that I need to work hard for MY body and to make my body fit an healthy. I have struggled with this in the past and made unhealthy choices for my body. I now focus on constant improvement and go off of how I feel rather than how I perceive I should look. Thanks for all your great tips and motivation!

  7. Thank you for sharing this. I was just hanging out with a friend and she has BRILLIANT thighs. I've always had a hard time with my thighs and in complimenting her, she was complimenting me on being lean-- yet I am skinny-fat (working towards becoming lean muscle)! There is always comparison, and it can be a great motivating tool, but it can also be deflating when we don't see gains. Thank you for reminding us to watch how we handle what inspires us. :-)

  9. I'm totally comparing, I'll admit it. And I know it's one of my most biggest downfalls. But I'm a visual person. It's hard for me to say "I want to be fit," and easier for me to POINT and say, "I want to look like her/you." I don't know how to undo this about myself, either. I know I am my own worst enemy.

    1. Well the first step is realizing you're doing it. Just try to be as aware of it as you can and change your self-talk, it has helped me lots!

  11. I am so glad I found your blog last week! I have seriously visited it at least once a day everyday since! I'm always trying new recipes because of you and I love getting inspiration from you! Thanks a bunch!
    I do feel slightly overwhelmed trying to figure fitness out though. Everybody says different things like no carbs, low carbs, blah, blah. It kinda makes me feel like I'll never figure it all out.
