Building a Fitness Community: UPDATE
While your fitness pursuits can certainly be a solo affair, there’s one aspect that can be a determining factor when it comes to the consistency with which you move your body, and the longevity of your endeavors: finding a sense of community.
Beyond fitness goals, community allows us to find a sense of belonging. It’s what can support us through some difficult moments — in or out of the gym — help inject a sense of fun in our day, and remind us of something essential: we’re all in this together.
A healthy mindset
will help you lose weight
(and by happier!)
I've tried diets. In fact, I started "dieting" when I was 11 years old. I lost 30 pounds between 6th & 7th grade by counting my fat grams and not snacking. If you don't believe that I needed to lose the weight, here's a photo of my when I was 11. I weighed 115 lbs. Wore a size 10 in WOMENS' CLOTHES... and I was probably like 4' 9" tall:
So, yes I dieted for most of my life. And I see-sawed a bit between weights and sizes. I think cheerleading helped me maintain my weight as well. But, I was constantly RESTRICTING myself.
There were times in high school that I'd wake up in the middle of the night and be SO HUNGRY! I'd have to go out to the kitchen to drink a glass of milk (Skim of course!) so I could go back to sleep.
And then there was the binge eating. It was as if a monster had crawled in to my brain and belly. I would have these food cravings and I would attempt to supplement something "healthier" so that I didn't eat the crap I desired. But then, I would JUST. KEEP. EATING! I couldn't stop!
Finally, when I felt like I was going to throw up because my gut was so full of crap, I'd be depressed. Angry. Ashamed. And, in turn, I'd then deprive myself even more for the following days.
And you know what?
I WAS MISERABLE.
It wasn't until abut 8 years ago that I decided to really change my mindset about eating and get out of this crazy spiral and bad eating habits. In addition to my habits, I also knew (but was in total denial) that I had a gluten allergy. I just never wanted to give up cheese steaks, pizza, and soft pretzels.... these are some of the most delicious foods on Earth!
But, I knew I had to because I was getting sicker and sicker.
So I decided to start listening to my body. I stopped eating gluten and immediately felt better from that.
But I also stopped depriving myself.
Now, that doesn't mean that I started making daily trips to Taco Bell, but if I wanted a piece of chocolate... I had the chocolate! But I also fed my body nutrients and green foods and lean protein. Clean food is really good!
Eventually, my cravings turned to cravings for healthier foods. And my mindset had changed to a more positive outlook. I am happy with my body and my diet.
Here are some tips for you to start changing your mindset:
And, by the way, I'm also now a Certified Nutrition Coach. So if you need a little help taking the next step toward a healthier YOU, then let's work on it together!
