“As muscle groups become more balanced, your posture will begin to change. But along with doing the exercised to balance muscle groups and realign the body, you must mentally allow yourself to have an improved posture. Your mental concepts of who you are an what you look like are translated into the way you carry your body. If you keep the same self-image as you had when your back pain (weight gain) began, these exercises will be of limited value.”*
Exchange back pain, weight gain etc… for the body issues you are dealing with right now. Limited mobility? Muffin top? Fibromyalgia?
If we do not change the way we see ourselves from the inside out, any exercise you do will be of little value. Your body may change but the nasty, no-good, mean as a snake voice in your head must change for you to see results in your life. Repeat after me “I will not be a harbor for negative thoughts.”
Take some time to apologize to yourself. I did yesterday and it was strange. I am really mean to myself! Why would I do that? Why do you do that? What body parts do you need to apologize to? Your booty? Liver? Skin? Thighs? Arms? Heart?
Your body does SO much for you all day everyday. It works hard, treat it right and you will feel better.
Drink tons of Water
Eat your veggies
Move your booty
Spend some time outside
Breathe deeply and fully
As you feel better, you must realign your self image, or anything you do will be short lived and painful.
