How Dare You Put Down Your Body

2 min read

If someone gave you this diamond, how would you treat it? How would you care for it? How would you regard it? 

This is called the Hope Diamond. It’s one of the most expensive diamonds it the world. It’s 45 Carats and valued at 250 million dollars.

My client was frustrated this morning trying to do a fitness combo and yelled, ‘I’m so uncoordinated!’ 

I stopped her and asked if she would sell her right arm for 1 million dollars.

She replied, ‘no.’

I asked if she would sell her right arm and right leg for 5 million dollars.

She adamantly replied, ‘no!’ 

I said, ‘so you clearly have at least 5 million dollars worth of value attached to you.’

I’m sure I could’ve added more body parts & increased the offer to 1 billion dollars and she would’ve said no.

So if your body is clearly priceless and valued more than a rare and precious diamond, why would you treat it any type of way? Why would you criticize it? Why would you resent it?

If you had the Hope Diamond, you would love it. You would care for it. You would spread highly of it.

Give the same love, attention, respect and honor to your body that’s priceless.

Are You Putting Yourself 1st or 50th?

1 min read

If you have a child in ballet/karate, a dog on supplements/organic foods, yet your body fat % is in the overweight/obese range (65% of women are), then you are putting yourself on the bottom of the priority poll!

Your Daily Challenge:

1.) Visit local gym websites

2.) Choose 3 to try out

3.) Commit to one ASAP

 

Most gyms offer a trial day(s) or Friend Days. Ours is on Wednesdays. This gives you a chance to see if you're a good fit for the program.

 

Make sure they have a compressive  program that includes eating guidance. It's a bonus if they also have a holistic aspect that includes emotional & mental sabotaging behaviors.

 

*Note* If you have a high body fat % & have been in your current gym for over 6 months without seeing significant results, RUN & do the above 3!
