Get the idea of changing your body out of your mind. This isn’t about weight loss, it’s not about flexibility, it’s not even about looking good in a swimsuit.
If we set out with that intention, then we’ll just be disappointed when the results don’t come immediately. Again, your body’s not Amazon Prime. I hate to say it, but it’s not gonna’ arrive in 2 days or 5 days.
So, if you get the idea of changing your body out of your thought pattern, then how should you think about your body? That’s the question.
Focus on wellness, not fitness, to reach your optimal health.
Or in other words, just focus on being healthy. Focus on feeling great instead of some vision of “fitness” or some number on the scale.
Because the truth is there is no magic number, there’s no number on the scale or size on the clothing rack that will make you love and accept your body. And I know It’s hard to believe. But I think it’s important to share with you that even though this is what I do for a living, I still struggle with body image issues, I struggle with negative thoughts, and I struggle finding motivation to go to the gym too. I know, it’s hard to believe.
So, if you’re stuck in a pattern of negative thoughts, here is the magic formula to change your perspective. It’s just one word, and it’s gratitude.
When I have a negative—or what we call “lack”—thought, when those things creep into my mind, I have to remind myself of every single thing I have done right—what I have to be grateful for: I am healthy. I have a functioning body. I am able to go to the gym. I’ve had four babies. I’m recovering now from injury, faster than I was before. And you have to find those things too that you appreciate about your body right now.
Wellness is about learning how to love and appreciate the process more than the destination. Love where you’re at right now.
