    Loving Your Body and Giving Self-Compassion

    Loving Your Body and Giving Self-Compassion

    An article from Science Daily (dot) com shared a study where an exercisers mood and body satisfaction was improved when the fitness instructors' comments during class were focused on strength and health, instead of losing weight or changing the appearance of one's body, (especially through body-shaming references).

    You are protecting your mental state and well-being by working out with fitness professionals that talk positively and motivate you in healthy ways both physically and mentally. Think how powerful it would be to change the  focus from your size to the beautiful uniqueness you have to offer. Use that positive energy to figure out your purpose in life! You were born to do great things! 

    Over the past 10 years of filming workouts, you'll most certainly see that my weight fluctuates depending on which workout you click on. The desire to be "authentic" encouraged me to continue to film workouts when I've been at all sizes. A real part of life is fluctuations in weight and size, and there is nothing wrong with that.

    Just as life has it's ups and downs, for a majority of real people, our weight also has it's ups and downs. Self-compassion is key to getting through difficult life changes, especially if/when your body size changes as a result of stresses. If we recognize the true unique miracle we are in those difficult times, the power within to give love to ourselves, will come much more easily, maybe with some practice.  

    Most importantly, keep moving. Studies have also shown that when you exercise regularly, you'll feel overall better and more confident about your body. Now that's a win!
