Do you workout because you don’t like what your body looks like or do you do it so you can see just how amazing it really and so you can honor what it needs?
With swimsuit season just around the corner body image is a hot topic. Who doesn’t want to look good and feel good this summer?
When I was in my early thirties I took fitness to an extreme and became so thin that I quit ovulating and developed other health issues. Now in my mid-forties, I’m learning that being mindful of my body means listening to what it tells me and not pushing myself to a dangerous extreme. Being mindful means being kinder to the parts of me that still think I should look different that I do. It means honoring the voices that say I am not good enough but choosing to treat myself as though I am worthy.
How often have you pushed when you needed to nap? How often have you skipped the gym because you were too overwhelmed with other things? How many times have you said you didn’t know what to do or that you didn’t enjoy any type of exercise? Why?
You need the body you have for the rest of your life so… Become friends with it, listen to it so you can give it what it needs. Then it can easily do what you want it to do for you.
Your body was designed to move. Move it or lose it is no joke…
Quick tips to get you started:
- Take a moment to check in with yourself. Get quiet and slowly scan your body. How does it feel? How do you feel? Practice this daily.
- Do you prefer team or individual sports? Explore how you can begin and then begin.
- Do you prefer yoga, weight training, walking/running? Try one or three or others. Do what is fun for you and change it when it no longer brings you joy.
- Explore how you feel about your body image. Does it impact your decisions? Does it effect your confidence?
- Do you want to exercise because you don’t feel good enough or do you want to do it because it feels good. Journal about this.
Wishing you all the joy, peace, and love you can imagine!

Amy spent her childhood dreaming of being a doctor only to watch her mother die of cancer when she was 20. Her life took an entirely different direction after that and she spent much of her 20’s sick with chronic illnesses.
One day Amy was too sick to take care of her newborn baby and she had to crawl to the phone to call for help. Amy then went on a quest to heal and looked in places she never knew existed before that day. AND she healed largely through fitness, nutrition, and meditation.
Through that experience Amy rediscovered a passion for helping others. She is committed to excellence and to making a difference in the world.
