Let me ask you a few questions:
When was the last time you leapt out of bed feeling sexy, comfortable in your skin and ready to grace the world with your presence?
When was the last time you put on shorts and felt fantastic showing off your stems?
When was the last time you went through a whole day without adjusting your clothes to better hide one of your ‘flaws’?
When was the last time you ate something decadent and didn’t think twice about how ‘a moment on your lips is a lifetime on your hips.’
If you answered never or ‘not since perms were on trend’ to the any of these questions, then keep reading.
If you’re like I used to be, you are constantly feeling self-conscious and not good enough in your body. You feel like your life would be so much better if you could just fit into those skinny jeans. You let these thoughts dictate your decisions with food (hell, your decisions in life!) and are constantly relying on diets and exercise to give you the body you want.
Well, I’m going to let you in on a big secret.
The answer to your body’s problems has little to do with food. In fact, your issues with food are the result of your relationship with your body.
Say whaaaaat, girl? (you say)
It’s true. If you don’t have rockin’ confidence in the body that you have today, you will never get your issues with food under control.
You see, the issue you have with your body isn’t just about food. Food is an innocent bystander that gets the blame for your body problems because it’s an easy fix. “I hate my stomach, so I won’t eat X.”
The truth is that when you feel good in the body that you have today, your food decisions become so much easier and effortless. You are inspired to make choices from a place of self-love and nourishment rather than guilt, self-loathing and punishment. Food takes a back seat to all the other awesome things you have going on in your life.
It’s time that you stopped making over your fridge and started to makeover your confidence.
I have partnered with Anne-Sophie Reinhardt to bring you the (free) 10-Day Body Confidence Makeover.
Starting Thursday May 1st, we’re launching 10 days filled with fun challenges for you to complete everyday that will whip your confidence into shape faster than Tim Gunn with a black American Express card.
This challenge won’t be about saying mantras to your thighs. No. We are going to work on your inner bombshell by completing challenges that make you feel good on the inside. Because being sexy is about radiating self-love, not accepting body parts.
Give a big middle finger to the spring detoxes and cleanses and do things differently this year.
