SummerBody Image, Eat the Rules, Self-Love, Self-WorthLeave a Comment

In this episode of Eat the Rules, I’m kicking off the movement series, talking about my history with exercise and how I navigate my relationship with movement now.

I also explore when you might need to take time off and why we need to move away from black and white thinking.

In This Episode, I Talk About

  • How I used exercise to try to control my body in the past,
  • Why I distinguish between exercise and movement,
  • How you can end up taking any kind of movement too far,
  • That not all bodies are predisposed to look a certain way and no amount of exercise can change that,
  • How it’s totally normal to want to lose weight in our society, what we don’t want is for that desire to be dictating our decisions and actions,
  • How I now have a great relationship to movement and my intentions behind it,
  • Some guidelines that I have for myself to make sure I don’t push it too much,
  • How I never let the way my body looks dictate what I do,
  • That following athletes of various body sizes online can really help,
  • Some warning signs for when you might need to take some time off,
  • How there are so many other forms of movement that aren’t intense, and we need to stop thinking that only certain types of movement count,
  • Plus so much more!
