I have a dear friend in Calgary, AB who owns a couple of fitness studios. Inside them they don’t have scales. In fact when they made the switch they had a scale breaking party…
I really like this idea.
The scale can be so misleading and so frustrating on a fitness journey. Especially one that surrounds fat loss.
At our MPower Fitness studios we teach our clients that the scale is only one part of the fat loss puzzle. There are actually metrics that are more important like body composition (fat mass, lean mass) and how our clothes are fitting…
But all of this is even less important than the way in which we approach the journey.
You see when we are caring for our bodies and moving them well because we LOVE ourselves we tend to automatically gravitate toward better choices.
We choose to get in bed earlier for more sleep out of respect and care for our bodies.
We choose to eat our veggies and drink our water because we feel better and we are honoring the flesh and blood “machine” that takes such good care of us.
We eat less treats and drink less alcohol because we are aware that too much sugar and alcohol is toxic for the body.
Making the shift in mindset toward a journey of self love and self improvement can be tough…especially if we are feeling less than great about our current physical condition.
Don’t get me wrong it isn’t easy to skip playfully to the gym when stuff hurts and our stomach is spilling over our pants…we want results and we want them yesterday.
But it doesn’t work like that…when we focus on what isn’t going right and what isn’t happening yet it always seems to take longer…
So this week, I ask you to reframe your journey the best you can, to look at it in the most positive light.
I’m moving my body because I love myself.
I’m eating wisely because I feel better when I do.
I’m choosing fruit over desserts because …
What else might you reframe?
What else could you see more positively?
We believe in you and we are here to help.
Remember, we are all in this journey with you.
Committed to your success,
Megan K and the team
