Hey High Vibe Friends
I hope this finds you staying warm and embracing this early winter weather.
Living in the Midwest during the 7 months of cold can be hard to stay on track with eating well most of the time, keeping with your fitness, fighting seasonal depression, and not packing on the winter fifteen.
Should we just be practicing B average fitness? This means we find the happy medium of working out, working on personal growth, eat healthily, but don't deprive ourselves. I'm going to bring this back around to body image and how through a million different humans eyes that you are beautiful to someone, and we will never be everyone's cup of tea, so we need to really work towards being comfortable with our own bodies. We put so much pressure on ourselves to look a certain way but are you doing it for you or because you think you should look that way based on society's standards.
Think about all the beautiful people in the world, and that's what is amazing about life.
Look at Lizzo (if you don't know her use the google machine) She is on a massive movement preaching about body acceptance. She is beautiful because she is confident in who she is and her body.
Then you have Katrin Davidsdottir. She is one of the top female CrossFitters. Her body is rock solid, muscles for days, but is her body the goal?
Gwyneth Paltrow, when you look at her, she is long and lean. Does this catch your eye?
The last one, maybe there is an older picture of you that you compare your current self to. How has your life changed since that picture?
If this feels daunting to you, I get it! I'm here with you. We are all doing the best we can, and when we are ready to take it to the next level, you'll up your game.
Remember, you're beautifully you!
