With Valentine's Day right around the corner, you may already be bombarded by commercials and a gazillion articles about the “perfect Valentine’s day date". Like you really need to be reminded that you're single. But fret not, because one, you’re not alone. Two, the expectations never live up to reality and three, there’s nothing wrong with being an independent woman that don’t need no man.
At #FITGIRLCODE, what really matters is a healthy mind and a healthy body. So that’s why we’re here to remind you that you’re pretty great and that you should focus on giving yourself some love this holiday too. Let’s be real, you deserve it. I know; sometimes this is easy to forget when you’re surrounded by people going crazy about finding a date, or wondering what their perfect boyfriend is going to do for them. But what really matters is what you’re doing for yourself. And no, you’re not going to die alone or become a crazy cat lady, stop worrying!
If you're single this Vday, why don't you plan a date for yourself? You’ll be in complete control and you know it’ll be great because of that. There’s no pressure to have that romantic comedy type of night looming over your head anymore. Think about it. Who knows you and what you enjoy better than yourself? There’s no room for disappointments here. (Sweatpants, hair tied, chilling with no makeup on sounds like a perfect date for me personally...)
Step two is to look in a mirror and dole out some compliments! You’ve got to love the skin you’re in. It’s basically the glue that holds you together, so it should be treated to some lovin’. Do you love your smile? Your hair? Ah, I got it. It’s your knees, isn’t it? Build your confidence and fill yourself with so much love that there’s no way that images toting “the perfect body” have any effect on you. You’ve already got the perfect body for you.
And if there’s something you don’t like, you have the tools to improve it. With a healthy mind and on a high from a successful Valentine’s Day, you can approach your physical health in a much more constructive way. Once you love yourself, it only makes sense that you’ll be good to yourself and make those kind of decisions that make you happy.
Lastly, of course, there's the gift. Round up your self-love holiday with the perfect little gift, courtesy of Jogha. Right now, special Valentine's day e-gift cards are available to make sure that you look as good as you feel when you hit the gym. A girl's got to splurge on herself every now and then, you know?
So come February 14th, take out a toast to you. To your wit, your personality, your kind soul. To your curvy build, to your intellect, to those sexy knees you’ve got. To your slim physique, that hair, and that infectious laugh of yours. Whatever you've got, it's perfect!
