Choosing your word for the year frames the year and sets intention into the year which shapes how you show up throughout the year, what you manifest, and the opportunities that arise. The word I chose during the Seeing into 2021 retreat we had on Tuesday is GENEROSITY.
That word will manifest for me in a variety of ways, but one of the ways I am going to be intentional about is sharing with you how you can transform your health and how I changed my own over 10 years ago.
I want you to know that transformation is essentially an easy process - the challenge comes as we work on our mindset, habits, and relationship with ourselves. I want to help you through the hard stuff and along the way teach you how to better feed yourself.
I wanted to transform my health because I was the heaviest I had ever been, I felt sluggish, I had small children and wanted to model good habits, I had daughters watching me and I didn’t want them to struggle with body image, I wanted to shop wherever I wanted, I wanted to fit the clothes already in my closet, I was tired of shopping at Eileen Fisher, I didn’t want achy joints as I got older. That is just the beginning of the list. I had at least 20-30 more.
As I got thinner, I found new reasons to transform my health. I found different reasons kept me on track in some circumstances, but not others. I developed more reasons so I could talk myself through different situations and challenges.
To begin your transformation, spend some time writing dwn all the reasons you want to transform your health. Think of the situations you find challenging. Develop reasons for losing weight, dropping gluten, eating more plant based, or (filll in the blank) that will help you in various situations. Think of reasons that might motivate you when you’re tired, when you’ve had a bad day, or on Saturday date night.
One challenge I have for myself to help you through is to do more Instagram lives and write more to help you. We also have the Glow Up coming which will focus a lot on the mental side of transformation to make it easier for you to reach your goals. You can find information about that on our website.
Tune in and Happy 2021!
