Fit Girl Series: Accept Your Body

love1

You can never, ever, not-in-a-million years, love and accept yourself from the couch.

If feelings were math “accepting your body” is a mathematical impossibility if you are not in touch with and caring for your body.

It’s not only ineffective, it’s dangerous advice that glamorizes, justifies and promotes obesity. It’s time to get over it America.

Accept what is and then love yourself.

Love yourself enough to make effort. Love yourself enough to care about what feeling is behind your eating. Love yourself enough to get off the couch and hit the gym or go to the track. Love yourself enough to make the time. Love yourself enough to find the money. Love yourself enough to make it a priority. Love yourself enough to go to an Over-eaters Anonymous meeting or Weight Watchers. Love yourself enough to put one foot in front of the other. Love yourself enough to break a sweat. Love yourself enough to read the packaging and labels. Love yourself enough to learn what you don’t know.

Love is not a feeling.

Love an action verb.

You can not teach what you don’t know.

Love your kid enough to go first.

Love your kid enough to say no.

Otherwise, otherwise, it’s just talk.

    Love your kid enough to go first. Loving my kids enough to go first can be a challenge when you have a workout to incorporate into a busy morning. At 6:00 am I was trying to think of ways to distract my daughter Sarah so that I could go running by myself. However I am glad that she was determined to go this particular morning. When we arrived at the field, the girls track team was already beginning their workout. At first I was intimidated, but Sarah was pumped to be with the older girls. It was every lesson I’ve tried to convey about health and fitness rolled into a “cool big girl” example! She wanted to go as fast as they did and I could tell that she was proud of herself afterwards. I think an important connection was laid down in her mind. Working out is fun and it is what healthy people do!
