YOUR BODY WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU. YOU JUST HAVE TO LOVE HER BACK!
When you give your body & mind space to recover they will always come back stronger for you!
Sometimes it’s hard though, to let the body adjust as you make changes
Especially if you’re in the phase of improvement season & gaining some weight or even intentionally changing your lifestyle which might lead to weight gain
But it’s important to remember that as you care for your body, she needs time & space to care for you!
Let her grow, let her find a new normal, let her get comfortable
Fighting her is the LAST thing you need to be doing
If you had some binges or overeating days, don’t punish yourself, instead work on your mind
If you don’t always love what you see in the mirror, don’t try to change everything to fit a “better” mold, focus on gratitude for what your body does for you
If you don’t like the way your clothing fits, don’t be hard on yourself & call yourself a failure, just know that it is temporary & even if it isn’t, you can donate & buy new
If your body isn’t giving you the health you’re working so hard for, don’t give up & say nothing works, reframe your thoughts to believe in your body’s ability to respond & heal. Make sure you’re really doing everything you can for her
If you find yourself comparing yourself to all the other girls who “don’t have these problems” remember that everyone is always learning about themselves & growing in some way shape or form & your own truth is ALL that matters
If you feel like you’ll never be lean, tight, or on stage again remember that there is so much more to life than that & your health, or your building phase is required to come back better
She is not fighting you
She is not holding you back
She is not your enemy
But maybe you are fighting her, holding her back, & acting as her enemy
It’s ok to take a step back! I did & I’m so happy I did. I love my body in new ways, learned more about her, & now she is responding so well to being back on a prep!
YOU ARE GOING TO BE FINE! Trust & Let Go!
