"I think the biggest thing is that to just really love yourself and love where you are and find a way to be like, all right, I may have 20 pounds on me, but it, I'm alive. Like I woke up this morning like amazing, like 150,000 people aren't gonna wake up this morning. "[00:22:20] – Lavinia Errico
I think that health really is an inside job and I don't care how many steps you do. I don't care if you're paleo or vegan or vegetarian or primal, at the end of the day, it's like, it's your thoughts, it's your words, it's your action, it's your behavior. You know, it's your attitude that really creates your life, right? [00:12:15] – Lavinia Errico
