Love Your Body Day 2 – Change the Convo, Girl!

When one of your friends starts talking negatively about her body, what do you do? There’s no way you chime in with, “Yeah, you know, your thighs do look sorta big. You should probably stop eating, then binge on a whole pint of ice cream, then cry, and feel worse about yourself.” But I could put down a pretty hefty bet that some of you have said or done this to yourself!

Stomach Soothing Smoothie

I can deal with fatigue, muscle soreness, or even a headache, but give me a stomach ache and my whole day is ruined. I’ve dealt with indigestion issues from a young age.
