Are you exercising to lose weight 🚫 or because you can ✅?
Movement looks different for everyone.
🏊🚶🏋️ Some people like to swim, others walk and some enjoy the gym.
😁 Do what you like and remember to move because it makes you feel good.
💪 Move because it releases those endorphins and makes you feel empowered and strong
😨 Move your body as a form of self-respect, rather than a soul-destroying weight loss tactic.
Here’s how to change your focus ⤵️⤵️⤵️⤵️
🚫 DIETING MENTALITY
🙁 How many calories did I burn?
🙁 I feel so guilty if I skip gym
🙁 I only workout to lose weight
🙁 If I eat more, I will work out more to work it off
✅ NON DIETING MENTALITY
😀 I focus on how exercise makes me feel, physically and emotionally
😀 Exercising is part of a healthy lifestyle
😀 Exercising helps me manage my stress
😀 Exercising reminds me how strong and powerful I am
Be mindful of the dieting mentality, and focus every day on making decisions from the non-dieting mentality that are empowering and will help you create a loving relationship with yourself, the food you eat and how you move your body.
