“I am a better mom, wife, and human when I take the time to make my workouts a priority in my life. It takes some sacrifice, but the benefits both physically and mentally are worth the effort. Treat your body well and it is going to allow you to be the best mom possible for those you love the most.”
I cannot tell you how to love yourself; all I can do is dare you to love yourself when you feel like a positive outlook on yourself or your body is most difficult. In my experience, that is the first true step: to love yourself regardless of what the world wants you to do at that moment. And if they validate you? Excellent. But start within yourself. Pick something to love without qualification.
