Even as I continue to see the body love movement grow in the fitness field, I am reminded daily that this is still the case. Women are still counting calories and skipping meals. Our culture is trapped in the cycle of what they shouldn't eat and how much they should abuse themselves in the gym this week. Yoga students come to their mat and are disappointed when they leave feeling like they didn't just finish a spin class.
When did your body feel its absolute best? Not its skinniest or your strongest...but most vibrant and alive. When did you last feel GOOD?? My hope for you is that you can say right NOW. And if that is not the case -- what can you do today to make that happen?
Sometimes that means drinking green juice and going for a run... seeking out a good hug and taking a nap...taking a walk and a juicy yoga class. With so many ways to feel good, why seek out ways to feel drained and deprived?
Up until a few weeks ago when an amazing coach reminded me of this, I was spending an awful lot of time making sure I felt worked...instead of feeling good. My gratitude and love goes out to him (if you're in Seattle, find this guy!) because in my last weeks of SFG re-certification preparation, I feel GOOD. Strong. Balanced. Well rested and vibrant.
SO ... what are you going to do TODAY. RIGHT NOW. to learn just how good your body is designed to feel?
