3 reasons folks find it blasted hard to maintain an exercise program

bfitness byoga

Biggest reason people don’t fully commit to getting in shape

➜ including maintaining an exercise program with conscious eating 

 they BELIEVE they cannot SUSTAIN it

 Here are 3 ways to change this belief :: 

(Get)                1. Community support ➺  get  help

(Always)         2. Advance-schedule   ☞  plan

(Totally)         3. Use your good senses

 1.  You cannot sustain much without support,   whether it be a consistent exercise program, a loving relationship, or raising a healthy child.  

You need support from those who are aligned with your goals and ideals to achieve anything and sustain excellence.

We are spiritually designed to flourish through making connections.  

Be clear that the connections you make are with those who encourage you, not diminish your efforts.

my beLOvedBODy principle ✶   

Find a tribe that aligns with your vibe!

2.   We are what we do habitually.  So, make a weekly plan or advance-schedule your workouts and your meals. 

(The RiT is the weekly RITUAL of 8 behaviors and habits for a healthy BOD) 

If you are left to your own whims and cravings, you will surely stray to your emotions to tell you what to do.  Listening to the guidance of your emotions, is like listening to a 3 year old tell you what to do.  Be gentle.  But don’t do it!

Consider the emotional distractions of life – stress, time constraints, varied environments, hormones, other people’s opinions.   Life is a recipe for erratic, inconsistent choices.

 Have a plan, instead. Live by it.  

It’s easier.

3.   Employ your senses, really, I mean it  ➥  use sight, smell, sound, touch, taste!

 Visualize the way you wish to look – every day.
Train yourself to enjoy the smell of healthy food.  Train yourself to know that the smell of old grease stinks.  Don’t eat it.  
Practice smelling the baked goods without yearning to devour them.  

{Yearning for them is another emotional attack.}

Remember The RiT and follow it!

Listen to your inner wisdom telling you to LOve yourself by making healthy decisions.   

Do not listen to other people’s agendas 

( unless they are supporting your inner Wise One).

  CULTIVATE A CLOSE RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR BOD.

Take baths, get massages, look in the mirror at your BOD OFTEN!!  {Yep!}

 The more you avoid looking at yourself, the more distance you’ll create with your BOD.

 Celebrate eating without guilt or gluttony!

After a while and after seeing your “hot BOD” results  ▸ and “a while” took me about 2 years because I finally got serious! this becomes so frickn easy, you’ll wonder what took you so long.

You see, you deserve to live healthy.  

Choose regular exercise and eat consciously.  

 

Your good health is sustainable with a plan, some help from good folks, and a little assistance from your good senses!

Don’t hate the haters

Don’t hate “the haters”.  Sympathize with them.
Here’s the deal-eo
The more focused you become as a beLOvedBODy lover (what I call folks who belong to my camp of health and fitness devotion), and the more often you make conscious choices about what, when and how much to eat, and the more you keep your sacred appointments to attend the gym/ workout 
 
~the more you will notice certain folks react to you with their snippy  “evil attack”!
We’ll call these folks “the haters” ( for now).
The haters may say things to you about food like
“come on, just taste it.”
“you mean you can’t have just one?”
“but I made it…”
” is that all you’re gonna eat? “
“You’re no fun anymore.” 
 
Ugh!
They may smoke and snarl about your new disciplinary demeanor.  They comment about your desire to meet your fitness appointments by saying “grimy” things like,
” you’re going to the gym again?”  
“Don’t you think you’re working out too much?”
“What if you just gain all the weight back ?”
“If you’re that sore maybe you shouldn’t be working out for a while”
They try and guilt you with
” but I thought we could … But since you have to go to the gym…”
Whenever we beLOvedBODy lovers hear these words, even me, a personal trainer!, we either cringe, roll our eyes, feel guilty and hand over our power, or lace our boxing gloves for a round of self-defense.
The reason why we hate these comments is because they trigger real fears about either our bodies( maybe I will gain all the weight back- oh no!) or it makes us feel obligated to sacrifice our personal commitment ( self-care) for the (selfish) need of another.
But as I said before, don’t hate “the haters” for speaking their truth.
Sympathize with “the hater”.
You see, you are choosing to live boldly.  
You are choosing health over personal neglect.  You are moving mental mountains. You are living your vision.
These choices take extraordinary strength, commitment, and clarity.
“The hater” has not mastered this supreme transmutation.  But everybody has this potential!  Everybody does!  We all just need some help!
 
So sympathize.
Explain your choices to “the haters” with loving brevity – keep it short and clear ( don’t defend, ever, it’s exhausting!), and the keep it movin’, beLOved.
Be an example, a leader.  Be amazing, not offended.
You might just be the support factor “the hater” needs to invert, and join forces.
Maximize your strength!
I Believe You Can,
your trainer,
michelle bernard
