Yesterday I came down with a sore throat. It didn't surprise me. I've been on the move most of the past month, and I'm exhausted! It was an amazing month of adventures for which I'm grateful, and I ate as well as I could on the run, but it takes a toll on the body.
I talked to my challengers about it last night because I want them to understand, this process isn't about losing weight or gaining muscle, it's about SELF-CARE.
This lifestyle has taught me to be in tune with my body. I'm now aware of when I need rest, when my body doesn't respond well to certain foods, even what time of day I should and shouldn't eat!
I've learned how good I feel and how well I sleep when I've been exercising. I've learned that it doesn't matter what the scale says when I feel good in my own skin. I've learned to make my own well-being sacred instead of a punishment for not looking like a super model!
As a coach, I'm going to tell you a truth you need to hear: Change doesn't come from a product. They are merely tools in our arsenal. Change comes when we make this promise to ourselves. An unbreakable promise to hold our own well being sacred even when we stumble our way through it!
Exhaustion, illness, weight gain, bowel issues, skin issues, these are all ways our bodies communicate that something is off. Lean into the journey! Learn about nutrition. Find exercise you enjoy! Pay attention to what your body is telling you. Learn to be aware of what it needs from you and you will fall in love your body and the journey!
