I was chatting with my sister this morning about her physical transformation and we were comparing strengths and trouble zones.
As we were remarking on how different our struggles are even when having the same parents she said, " As I've been studying, I've learned that the areas we store fat are determined in utero. We can't change WHERE our bodies store fat. The only thing we can do is build muscle which decreases the fat percentage and reduces the excess in those trouble areas."
Our culture is obsessed with losing weight but weightloss alone isn't the answer. Depriving or punishing ourselves can only last so long, it's not a foundation we can build on and it certainly is never done out of love.
When we fall in love with treating ourselves well and becoming stronger, we tap into that desire to work hard and revel in the progress we achieve! Because what is done in love is done well! 💗
We have to transform from the inside out. We have to strengthen our minds first and strength our bodies second and neither of those things can be done well, if at all, outside of love.
Gut check! What is your " why"? What is your current motivation to work out and watch your food intake? Is it a joy or do you dread it? Trace that emotionally backwards to the thoughts behind your why. What needs to change to make it an act of love?
