“The body achieves what the mind believes”
Day 3 upper body fix and 10 min abs!
It’s not about “making time” to exercise. Its prioritizing ME!
At 23 years old I had two male doctors tell me to “just loose weight” when we were faced with infertility. It was (and is) so much more than “just loosing weight”. Hearing those words, I instantly felt ashamed, pissed at my body and angry at my health. For years I was ignorant to how my body was wanting me to live. I didn’t “want to make changes”, I “enjoyed” my lifestyle, but truthfully I had NO clue how to “lose the weight” or “what” was wrong with me. My body was screaming at me from the inside out. Except worse now… with intense amounts of anxiety and depression.
True health is being aligned in mind, body and spirit. For me, I began being guided down this path without yet connecting the dots or realizing just how much healing I had to do or how it could (and did/does) benefit me!
It was in 2018 during my personal coaching with Helen Murray when she helped me see the connection between my chakra energy work with my Reiki training (in 2016), along with my holistic health and wellness lifestyle shift (mid 2014), which then ramped up in January 2017 and has led me down this path of lifelong learning!
Learning to honor the body I’ve been given, including learning HOW to listen to my body. The way it speaks to me and how my health challenges have provided an opportunity to learn how to thrive in the best way possible. That healthy can be simple and balance is key!
I’m not perfect, no one is, the opportunity for growth. Realizing the importance of living in alignment, living in truth, not just with others but most important… with myself!
I am reminded how good I feel when I do move my body! When I eat healthy foods and drink water. Thinking of where I’ve come from and how much I have achieved. By leaning into my body and learning about what my health challenges are. Choosing to be empowered in how I was going to live.
Staying focused in my lane, on my journey, which is so unique for all of us, and sometimes far from the “norm” of society 😉✌
💧💧💧 Diffuser blends this evening for my workout was 2 drops of the doTERRA Yoga Collection, Anchor, Arise and Align. I also added some Wild Orange on my wrists before my Beach Body workout. Wild orange is divinely calming for me.
