209: “I can’t stick to my health kick”

“I can’t stick to my health kick” how many times have you said this? Thought this? How many times have you ‘fallen off’.

How many times have you marked Monday as THE day to start your health kick? Then Friday comes and you’re bingeing on pizza and chocolate, then Sunday comes and you feel this wave of guilt. And here we go again.

 

We lived like this for many years… and now we don’t.

It’s better, well we think it is… it’s more loving, it welcomes more freedom. How we live now lets us breathe deeper, relax deeper, feel deeper. It’s filled with more joy, more light, more laughter, more magic.

Sounds good, yeh?

During this Get Merry Podcast episode, we chat more about this and how we stepped away from the toxic relationship we had with health kicks. It’s filled with actions steps and inspiration. 

Stuff we talked about…

  • Self-love, self-respect, self-acceptance… this is what you need, not another health kick.
  • What is the obsession with losing weight and your looks stealing from you? 
  • How do you FEEL about yourself right now? Why will a health kick, or losing weight make you feel better? Let’s dig a little deeper. 
  • How we changed. The action steps we took and continue to take to create a healthy, loving, nourishing relationship with food, exercise and what we look like.
  • So much more.

We talked lots about Yoga and Pilates and the magic of community. If you’re looking for more support come and try MerryBody. You can read more HERE.
