Move Your Body, Love Your Body: Fitness Inspiration & Routines

Are you exhausted from dieting and constantly trying to find the right formula that will finally enable you to lose weight, have oodles of energy, and actually feel good about your body?

If you are like me, you have probably tried a long list of things – diets, cleanses or detoxes, fitness programs, gym memberships. Each time feeling more like a failure when it didn’t give you the results you so desperately want or when you just couldn’t stick with it.

DID YOU KNOW THAT THE AVERAGE WOMAN SPENDS AN ENTIRE MONTH EACH YEAR WORRYING ABOUT HER APPEARANCE?
Based on the average life expectancy, that could be up to 5 1/2 YEARS spent thinking about her looks and her body. Worrying about what other people think of her or her weight. Wishing she looked differently or feeling badly about herself.

I don’t know about you, but that makes me so sad (and a little angry, to be honest).What would you do if you could get an extra month of time each year in your life?

Spend more time with family and friends?

Go on a vacation or travel?

Take time off?

Learn a new skill?

Get caught up at work (or on your to-do list)?

Be more present in your kids lives?

Start a new business?

Take up a new hobby?

If you’ve been stuck in the diet cycle, focused on changing your body or losing weight, then every year you are missing out on a month of your life.

I know how you feel, I felt the same way.

For decades, I was desperate to lose weight. So I did the juice cleanses, the lemon cleanses, the extreme fitness programs. And eventually – I lost all the weight.

And spoiler: I still felt unhappy with my body. Instead of feeling obsessed about losing weight, now I was obsessing with keeping it off. My life revolved around fitness and exercise – and so did everyone around me. Because I couldn’t eat normal food, family dinners always started with an email to me asking what was on my “okay to eat” list.

People said I looked awesome and always asked how I was so skinny. My response was always the same “You probably don’t want to eat/live like I do.” And yet – it still took me a few years to figure out I didn’t want to eat/live like that either.

If you’ve tried multiple diet and exercise programs and nothing has worked yet you’re still looking for an answer, then you need to understand WHY none of them work:

THEY ARE NOT WORKING BECAUSE YOU ARE FOCUSED ON HATING YOUR BODY AND WANTING TO CHANGE IT, VERSUS MAKING CHOICES FROM A PLACE OF LOVE AND RESPECT, KNOWING THAT YOUR BODY IS GOOD AND IS WORTHY.Making decisions from a place of hating your body and wanting it to change or “fix” it, versus loving your body, seeing its value and wanting to nourish it are two VERY different places.

Understanding this difference is what will give you the results you are looking for!

Just imagine what your life would be like if you….

wake up feeling energized and excited about your life

wear whatever you want to wear (without caring what other people think!)

say ‘YES’ to going to the beach, or going swimming in a cute swimsuit

say YES to wearing tank tops, sleeveless shirts, shorts – without worrying about hiding your body!

were able to enjoy eating and not feel stressed about what to eat (or feel shameful for eating it)

had motivation to move your body and workout, because you know what makes you feel good

are able to confidently and kindly say no to what doesn’t feel good to you (and mean it!)
