Many women who sign up for my classes and programs feel quite bad about their bodies. They have nothing but negative comments and emotions about the way they look and feel. Sure, it’s a powerful motivator for change, but they attach their happiness to the perfect body and don’t allow themselves to feel good until they look better. While looking good and feeling good work together, what has to come first is the appreciation for how fantastic your body already is and what it does for you on a daily basis, regardless of what the scale says.
Why would you drag yourself around feeling bad, feeling regretful over past bad food choices, the fact you just didn’t make enough time for yourself to exercise, sleep enough or rest? Every second of that feeling is a wasted second. Your body is very forgiving, regardless of what you may have done to it in the past. So, look up, take action with every meal, every workout and stop putting off feeling great. Decide right now that you are happy, healthy, and fit. If you hold that believe about yourself, you will treat yourself accordingly. Your food choices will be healthier, your workouts will become more rewarding and motivating, and you will look at yourself in the mirror, seeing an attractive, fit, healthy and happy person.
Treat your body well NOW – don’t wait – and it will reward you with energy, health, youthfulness and strength.
