Where The Badass Rules started!
This is where The Badass Rules started. It didn’t evolve into The Badass Rules as we know it now until years later, but this is where the mission behind it came from, this day at the Jet Apartment in Playa Den Bossa, Ibiza.
It’s what you can’t see in the picture that’s important! …… ME! I wasn’t in this picture, in fact I wasn’t even ever in this pool. I stayed on my lounger, covered in a dress, the entire time.
It wasn’t that I didn’t want to go in the pool, I did! However, the desire for no one to see me in just a swimsuit outweighed the cooling off in the pool and having fun with my friends. I would say “oh yeah I’ll get in the pool in a minute” or, ” I’m just going for a drink first” when they would ask if I was getting in the pool. I was too ashamed of my body to even tell them my best friend and my husband that I wasn’t comfortable.
I took the picture so I would remember this day. So, I would remember how I felt. I knew I was missing out, I knew I needed to change my mindset, I knew I had to find the way to love my body and be proud of it!
So that’s what I did! I found it! I found the way to love my body and be proud of it! I trained my body and my mind to make me into the most BADASS version of myself that I could be! No matter what size or weight I am at any point in the future, I’ll be in the pool, I’ll never be stuck on a lounger in a dress again!
Once I found the way to love my body, found the way to stop the feeling of helplessness that all the yo-yo dieting had left me with, found the way to feel BADASS in a bikini no matter my size I knew I had to share it! I spent so many years hating my body, feeling like a failure with weight loss and feeling like I’d never get “there” that I didn’t want any other female to ever feel the same way!
So that’s it, that’s the mission of The Badass Rules! For every female to love the BADASS body they’re in! The Badass Rules has never just been about exercise, it’s never just been about food, it’s never just been about fat loss and fitness for that matter! To me, it’s always been about the big picture, it’s about your entire life! I started The Badass Rules to help other females, not feel happy and confident in a bikini, but to feel happy and confident and love the lives they live!
