Have you ever said you hated your body?
I don’t recall directly say it to myself, but I certainly behaved that way in a couple seasons of my life.
I would not only exercise with the goal to lose weight, but I also suffered from bulimia.
During those times, I was not in a healthy place in myself.
Fast forward to today…
I exercise less than before, I never diet, I’m in a far happier place mentally, and I manage to consistently maintain a healthy weight.
I know for a fact that diets and punishing yourself with hard core exercise don’t work to keep a healthy body and weight.
Smart exercise, a healthy mindset and eating lots of vegetables on the other hand does work!
The things I always preach to my clients.
“Workout to feel good not to punish yourself”.
Working out because you ate junk food, is not going to help you build a sustainable practice and or keep a healthy weight long term. It only causes more stress, which has the opposite effect on our body, than what we want.
