Healthy eating today! I found a new favorite snack: sliced raw bell peppers seasoned with a little salt– SO yummy. I also worked out like mad in a kickboxing class.
I’ve been thinking a lot about fitness (obviously) and my motivation to be fit.
Something I discovered:
I Need To:
By stressing about my size I am actually putting my body into “starvation mode” and am making it retain fat in order to protect me. How cyclical! Starting now: I accept myself the way I am right now. I will workout and eat healthy foods because my body deserves to be nourished and strengthened — NOT so I can meet a superficial standard of beauty. Words are powerful- this one perhaps the most powerful: LOVE. I am choosing to say I love myself right now and right now I am relinquishing my stresses to have the “perfect body”. My body is hardwired to be healthy- I just need to facilitate its processes by providing nourishing foods and adequate exercise.
