We've been told as women that if we hit that goal weight, if we fit into that dress, if we looked more like the airbrushed model in the ad we would be happy. It's a lie!
It isn't about weight loss. The photo on the left I had lost all the baby weight from two pregnancies. I was down to my pre pregnancy goal weight and I was still unhappy with my body. I was nit picking and speaking negatively to the girl in the mirror.
At that time, she was my success story. I had done it. I had lost the weight, but when I look at my journey two years later, I realize I had only just begun!
Two years of filling my mind with personal development, with treating my body with respect, of learning to be in tune with what it needed from me and I learned to love it emotionally through practically loving it through my actions!
I'm 38, I'm 8 pounds heavier than the goal weight I used to set for myself, I'm out of the underweight category that the world encouraged me to stay in.
I'm free, mentally emotionally and physically, and I'm happy and I love my body. That is the true goal!
Losing the shame, losing the unrealistic unattainable standards, and simply falling in love with respecting ourselves!
We are under educated about nutrition, we are neck deep in fad diets, we are chasing ever moving target goals. It has to stop!
Clean week starts in our Heart of a Warrior challenge group on October 15th. It's one week of true nutrition guidance, realistic 30 minute workouts that anyone can do, and a weeks worth of shakes full of nutritionally dense superfoods that will help heal your gut and reduce cravings through actually giving your body what it needs.
It's a week to give you the tools you need, how to be consistent, how to eat well, and how to make it a sustainable lifestyle!
I didn't tell anyone when I started because I was afraid I'd just fail again, but here I am almost three years later happier, healthier, and more consistently respecting myself in the decisions I make!
It's a journey that I'm still on but I'm growing, changing, transforming from the inside out. You can do this! Its only $30 to get the tools! Come join me for clean week and see what's it's all about! Link to our free group below!
