I think we all recognize that we should give love on a daily basis to the people in our life that mean the most to us.
Although this holiday can make it easy for us to go out of our way for the ones who we love, we should not forget that the most important person in this world...is yourself. It's not selfish or arrogant to love yourself and with all the body bashing that you may do on a daily basis, it's time to give a little xoxo to your body.
Sit down and write yourself a thank you letter. This experience will change your life.....or at least change the ways you think or act with your body.
Here's one of my letters:Dear Body
Here's a poem I found
that may help you get started:
Let’s start a revolution.
Let’s be BOLD.
Let’s love our tummies,
wrinkles, and curves.
Let’s celebrate our hips and thighs
And all the parts of us that magazines
are too big or too small.
Let’s applaud our flaws and scars,
and enjoy that we don’t have to
Let’s say “I love my body”
and mean it,
and feel comfortable in our own
Let’s eat a meal and not feel guilty,
and exercise because it feels
Let’s listen to our bodies
and follow our intuition.
Let’s set our own
standards of beauty-
and open our eyes
we already are.
And after you write your letter you will need a yummy dessert to feel great about. Here's my Good-for-You Brownie recipe.
Lastly - I want to send a big thank you to all the inspiring Trimarni nutrition and coaching athletes that have come into my life.... wanting to improve health, change body composition and/or improve performance. Thank you for letting me into your life and for the opportunity to help change your lifestyle.
