Judgement, Comparisons, and Perfection

We need to let go of all the “shoulds” that plague us as women:

We should look a certain way (tiny, thin, not too bulky). 

We should act a certain way (wear age appropriate clothing, not be too loud, outspoken, or opinionated). 

We should only be focused on weight loss or fixing something about our bodies when it comes to our fitness goals.

All of those shoulds are bullshit. And unfortunately, so ingrained in our brains, that it makes it difficult to let them go.

Vibrations

When we put our energy towards something, we send vibrations that way. And the more we focus on it, the greater those vibrations become. Writing it down, seeing it everyday insures we are sending out these super strong vibrations, to all the right things, into the universe.

Meditation Made Simple

Meditation can sound a bit intimidating. Or too whoo-hoo. Really though, it’s just about breathing. Quieting the mind (or at least trying anyways) enough to just focus on your breath. Tuning in and giving your body some much needed attention.

Action Inspiration

Motivation comes once we’ve taken action, not while scrolling inspiration boards on Pinterest. Getting started is always going to be way harder than keeping it going. So just get started. Create your own inspiration by taking action.

Eat What You Want, When You Want It.

Most (not all) of us women have a pretty messed up relationship with food. We’ve been on some sort of “diet” most of our lives and sadly, are still unhappy with how our bodies look.

We use words like, “bad” to describe foods we think we shouldn’t be eating. We punish ourselves for eating certain things. We push (unnecessarily) harder in the gym when we think we’ve eaten too much. Or restrict ourselves so much, that we eventually cave and end up eating more than we need…and then feel guilty for having no willpower.

5 S.T.E.P. ’s To Being Tuned In.

One of my biggest missions as a health and fitness coach is to help women become tuned in to their bodies. 


We hear too much outside noise on what we should be eating, which workouts we should be doing, how we should look and feel, that we’ve become out of touch with our own bodies natural rhythms, cravings, hunger, and energy.

WHY?

Many of us think we should lose weight. We should be working out. We should be watching what and how much we eat. The media (very directly) tells us this everyday. We’re told we could be smaller, thinner, not to bulk up too much, eat that, avoid this. Kinda leaving us with no thoughts of our own. Just a whole lotta shoulds.

Why we need to chill on the HIIT.

However, that’s no longer the case. In fact I very rarely use HIIT training with my clients anymore. Mostly because in my experience most women over the age of 30 (the majority of my clients) are too stressed out and haven’t earned the right (in my expert opinion) to do that kind of high intensity work.

Over it.

But can we just stop caring about it? Can we just stop trying to change our bodies to the detriment of our health. Can we shift our focus to something other than our thighs and abs? Like seeing what are bodies are capable of doing.

We Got The NEAT

 In other words, killing yourself for 20-30 minutes at Cross Fit (or any super intense workout), then sitting on your ass all day, might not be as good as moving a lot throughout the day, even if the day doesn’t include a “workout”.

Mind Over Food

Okay, whoa, what? Basically how we view food before we eat it, positively or negatively, will effect how we digest and store it later. Crazy, right? Think of how many times you’ve eaten a dessert and felt a huge amount of guilt as you ate it. Or all the times you ate a salad, thinking how gross/bland/boring it was.
