We all know the truth when we hear it. It sits quietly in our energy.
What is the truth of your body? Have you been honouring the sacred vessel that carries your Spirit? Have you been honouring what gives you life so that you can carry out your deepest desires & your life’s purpose?
Write a daily note for as long as you need ( hint- it may turn into a letter) asking your body for forgiveness for all the ways you may have dis-honoured or ignored it’s needs. Stop the daily notes of forgiveness once you have exhausted your list.
Now continue with daily notes of love, telling your body how you plan to honour it on this new day. Keep it simple and pick one thing for your focus each day.
A Note to my Body: Today I plan to honour your energy. We’re going to do a great 26 min kettle bell exercise! I know it gets your heart pumping and your blood flowing. Thank you for all you do for me.
Watch how your body responds to your new reverence.
Researchers have uncovered a cool fact: Body fat has a time keeping gene that periodically tells your your body to discard excess fat. It’s more active earlier in the day and gets slower in the evening when less fat is being broken down and discarded.
It’s another good reason not to eat big meals late in the day. The later you eat, the less chance you will have of breaking down stored fat in the body.
We know that women’s body’s are not as proficient as men’s at metabolizing fat while they’re sleeping. This makes women more susceptible to turning evening meals into stored fat as they sleep.
So why not support your body’s natural tendencies by tapering your food intake though out the day.
Still eat when you’re hungry and stop when you’re feeling satisfied, but try keeping your stomach space even lighter after 3pm and in the evening.
For most people weight loss isn’t just about exercise and eating a healthy diet. It’s about figuring out why you eat so you can stop.
The “why” is the emotional work and it’s important. Actually, it’s not only important it’s imperative! Getting to know your emotional state is about becoming a real grown up. When you choose grown up emotional responses you learn to process your emotions in healthy ways. You eventually no longer allow childish tantrums to drive harmful behaviours.
You choose to feel your emotions instead of feeding them!
You choose exercise instead of sitting on the couch.
You choose a fresh green smoothie instead of a cola.
You choose to love yourself like you’ve never committed to doing before.
Becoming an emotional adult means:
to take responsibility for your choices
to acknowledge that success requires effort and patience
to believe in yourself
to believe in your desires
When you become emotionally mature the only approval you need is your own.
It’s easy to come up with reasons to skip a workout or to eat fast food.
I’m too busy. I’m too tired. I don’t have time to prepare meals.
Excuses are little lies we tell ourselves. We think they keep us from pain but really they prolong and exacerbate our emotional suffering.
Take each little lie you tell yourself and turn it around.
Excuse: I’m too busy.
Truth: I watch an hour of TV every night so I really do have time to workout.
Excuse: I’m too tired.
Truth: I do feel tired but I know that exercising re-charges my body. I’m tired because I don’t exercise!
What are your excuses? Don’t just think about them, write them down! You can turn any excuse around. Acknowledge that those little lies are not little, they’re actually hurting you in BIG ways.
Know that you’re worth the truth.
Use your turnarounds as fuel to move in the direction you want to go!
