What do you *TELL* yourself about your body?

As a nutrition & exercise coach, I’m bummed that most women don’t talk about mindset more when it comes to our BODIES!

You’re probably aware that your mind BELIEVES what you tell it... Regardless of whether it's the truth or not.  Yep, you read that correctly... Your mind often believes what you tell it, even if it's different than reality.

Ask yourself this question: What do you *TELL* yourself about your body?

If you're mind is always full of negative or criticizing thoughts, it will feel impossible to have a healthy & peaceful relationship with food, exercise, and your body.

Instead of focusing on the negative self-talk, celebrate every step of your journey… And start giving yourself (and your body) some credit!

There's absolutely NOTHING wrong with wanting to improve your health while transforming your body... 

Heck—my ENTIRE business is based on helping women create the healthy body of their dreams. ;)

But remember that BELIEVING you can achieve your goals and TELLING yourself how strong and beautiful you are (no matter what the damn number on the scale says) is the key to being successful.

You may be wondering… How do you *start* shifting your mindset so that you can actually start loving your body??

My favorite way is to write a body positive affirmation (like I AM BEAUTIFUL or MY BODY IS STRONG) on a sticky note, and place it on your desk or your bathroom mirror. EVERY time you see the sticky note, say the affirmation to yourself.

If you're looking for some help to overcome your mental hurdles, so you can create a healthier relationship with food and your body, I encourage you to book a FREE coaching call!  

On the call, we'll discuss your current relationship with food, and you'll leave the call with 3 strategies to implement immediately to help you love your body (and your life!)  Don't let fear stop you from reaching your goals... Let me help you push past the roadblocks that have stopped you from reaching your health and fitness goals!

 

5 Ways to Show Your Body Love this February

 

February is the month to celebrate LOVE!  

The most important type of love you can find is love for YOURSELF.  Self love doesn't mean selfish love... It means loving yourself so that you have the humility and acceptance to love others.

Check out these 5 ways to help you show your body love:

1. MOVE!

It doesn't matter how you exercise, or where you exercise, or what time of day you exercise... All that matters is that you MOVE!  Movement helps to keep your bones, muscles, and heart strong and healthy.

2. Make a love list.

Our bodies are amazing.  Physically, our bodies are strong enough to carry us throughout our daily lives... from birth to death.  Mentally, our bodies get us through the most exciting AND the most tragic events we encounter on a daily basis.  Make a list of all the things your body has done for you that you are grateful for.

3.  Spoil your body.

Treat yourself!  I'm talking about a manicure, a massage, or even a relaxing bath.  You don't need to spend lots of money... Just find some time and quiet space for you to relax!

4.  Eat something amazing.  

It could be a juicy piece of fresh fruit, or it could be a decadent brownie... But ENJOY something that you've been craving.  Try not to go overboard on the portion size, but truly enjoy eating it.  Eat your treat slowly and mindfully, so that you can savor every bite.

5. LAUGH!

Find your favorite funny movie, or a funny book... Read your favorite jokes... It doesn't matter what triggers it, but I encourage you to LAUGH until you're crying.  Research suggests that belly-aching laughter relieves stress and physical tension.  Plus, it decreases stress hormones and boosts your immune system.

During this season of love, by all means, SHARE love with others!  But don't forget to take care and love yourself too!  

If you're interested in learning how to love your body on a deeper level, I encourage you to book a no-pressure consultation call with me.  On the call, we will talk about your current relationship with your body, and how we can work together to help you lose weight, improve your energy and your confidence, and your self-love.
