Be Healthy, Be Happy!

I'm Kate, I'm 22 years old originally from Long Island, NY, but currently residing in Springfield, MA for law school. I started my journey towards health and fitness back in January of 2013 and since then I have completely changed my lifestyle. I struggled with my weight my entire life and developed bulimia my senior year of high school, which didn't help me lose weight, but reinforced poor eating habits, so I am currently in recovery from the binge/purge cycle and do not condone this behavior at all. I'm always available for help or advice, but keep in mind I am not a nutritionist, I am not a personal trainer, and Google is always a great resource!

I love running, dancing, lifting, apples, peanut butter, grilled chicken, dark chocolate, and sweet potaters.

This mechanic told me he feels bad for the man who marries me because I’m in law school.

It’s a good thing I don’t plan on marrying a man who is intimidated by smart, successful women.



1. Your body is in flux for the rest of your life. Think of your body as fluid instead of static — it’s always going to change. So get comfortable with those changes.

2. No one will love you or not love you because of your body. You are lovable because you’re you, not because your body looks a certain way.

3. The most intensely personal relationship you’ll ever have is with your body. It’s a lifelong relationship that’s well worth investing in and nurturing the same way you would with loved ones.

4. You don’t owe your body to anyone. Not sexually, not aesthetically. Your body is yours. Period.

5. What someone else says about your body says more about them than it does about you. Look past the actual snark to the person who’s saying it, because it’s only a reflection of what they think of themselves. That’s when you’ll see how little power their words have.

6. Your body is not a reflection of your character. It’s a physical home for the complex and wondrous and unique being that is you.

7. Take up as much space as you want. You don’t have to be small, or quiet, or docile, regardless of your physical size.

8. Everything you need to accept your body is already inside you. There’s no book, or diet, or workout routine or external affirmation that you need to feel good about your body right now.

9. Your body is a priority. It’s always trying to tell you things. Taking the time to listen to is of the utmost importance.

10. Wear whatever you want. Your body shape does not dictate your personal style, and fashion rules that say otherwise are wrong. Dress yourself in a way that makes you feel happy and confident and beautiful, because guess what? You are.
