OK, so now we’ve gotten back to basics. We’ve ditched the scales, we’re tuning into our bodies and we’re creating an intention to care for ourselves. Brilliant. Today we are going to break it down and get real girlfriend (or boyfriend – lads have body gripes too, I know).
I’ll be honest with you. I used to complain about my body constantly. What I hated, what I wanted to change and how I was going to do it. I’d write up unrealistic detox plans and crazy exercise schedules with the aim losing some silly amount of weight from places my body just isn’t designed to lose weight from.
But of course these schemes don’t work. I was being completely unrealistic about what my body was capable of, my limitations, my potential, my needs and desires. I’d usually become annoyed that the scales hadn’t changed and I’d give up. Or if they had changed, I was generally so exhausted from living off carrot sticks and green tea and living part-time at the gym, that I’d burn out and binge and the cycle would repeat once more.
Do you relate to this? If so, it’s time to get real sweetheart.
I want you to get ultra honest with yourself as you read through this post. Where do you deny yourself your birth right to really dig yo’ fine self, love your body, exercise from a place of love and feel really, really good?
