GRATITUDE

“Stop treating fitness like it’s a punishment.

You can choose to eat and exercise in a way that significantly improves the way you look and feel.

That’s not a punishment…

That’s a privilege.” – Carter Good

Did you workout today?! 61041032_953574838176_209598080536805376_n

Mindset is KEY!

I have to work out today….
Correction: I GET TO workout today.
.
I talk to so many people who say they just can’t find the motivation to workout. One thing I’ve found is practicing GRATITUDE in any situation can almost always be a solution.
.
What if you stopped looking at fitness as a chore?
Instead saw it as a privilege.
Something amazing your body is capable of doing each and every day.
.
Today you get to workout. You get to feel more positive, improve your health, and move your body in a way that not everyone is capable of.
.
Will you take advantage of that?! Who’s getting their Friday workout in? 💪

I’m Sorry 💗

Full transparency. I regret a lot of things I’ve done in the past to my body.
.
I starved myself on less than 1000 calories a day.
I did hours of cardio with the hopes of “burning away” my body fat.
I celebrated my size 00s. 
I fueled my body with low calorie ‘chemical shitstorms’ for years.
.
Little did I know I was forever damaging my metabolism.
I was training my body to hold on to any fuel I gave it.
I was destroying my gut, my health, and would develop Celiac Disease shortly after.
I would develop panic attacks and anxiety that I would forever battle.
.
But I would learn. I would share. I would heal. And I would THRIVE.
.
Dear body: I’m sorry. I’m sorry for blaming you. Abusing you. Starving you.
But thank you for standing by me. For staying strong. And for teaching me some of the greatest lessons I now have the power to share.
.
Be so very thankful for your struggles. They may turn out to be your biggest strengths. 💗

Self Love and Weight Loss?

I used to feel self conscious to talk about self love and weight loss at the same time.
.
How could I help people lose weight and get healthy, while telling them to learn to love their bodies at the same time?
Was me posting a before and after doing more harm than good?
.
Then I realized something.
.
It is 100% okay to learn to love your body where you’re at, while working to change it.
.
There is NOTHING wrong with wanting to feel healthier.
With wanting to MOVE more.
With wanting to weigh less to improve how you feel on a daily basis.
With weight loss can come more energy, better sleep, a happier mood, and improved confidence.
.
But if you’re waiting on your weight loss to feel better in your skin you’re doing it wrong…
.
Working towards a healthier you WHILE embracing where you are at on your journey.
.
That is the key.
.
Know that it is 110% possible to change your life, health, and body BUT if you don’t work on you mindset now, you will forever feel the same 10, 20, even 30 lbs from now.
.
Find BALANCE. Find HEALTH. Always here to help.
