Diet Free and Loving Life (and getting muscle ups)

If you ever told me that I would be OK with my body I would have laughed in your face a year ago. It didn’t matter how “good” I looked to others it was NEVER ENOUGH for me. Diet after diet after diet. Failure after failure after failure. Then something changed. I remember sitting down to write in this blog and I realized I was in a cycle. History kept repeating itself. For things to change I had to do something different.

“If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.”
– Tony Robbins.

First I realized I had a problem. No matter how good I looked I never felt like I looked good. I was always wanting more, and the scale was my krypto_mg_1612nite. I would weight myself every day and my self esteem and body image that day was based on that number. If it was high, I was low… and vice versa.

I had met Summer at the Masters of Movement Week in Toronto and I loved her talk and I signed up for her Rock Your Body program. I honestly signed up because I thought it would bring me to my “NEXT LEVEL BODY” but it did much more.

It taught me that I was enough. It taught me to love myself today. I threw away my scale and learned to listen to my body and feed her when she was hungry. I stopped dieting and started living. Now that I wasn’t obsessing about food my brain had more “free space” to focus on other important matters.

DESA7238The other thing that came out from it was that I learned to TRUST MYSELF with food for the first time in years. And since I trusted myself more I went for it and started trusting myself in other areas of my life. My job, my dreams and goals… I was ready to conquer it all.

The greatest thing of all is that my body is happy now. She isn’t perfect but she is happy because I don’t abuse her anymore with deprivation then binging. And to prove a point I weighed myself one last time. The two pictures were taken 2 years apart. In one of them I was 15 lbs HEAVIER then the other. I could also run faster, lift more weights and was happier then I have ever been… and I was free.

AND I GOT MY MUSCLE UP WHEN I WAS AT MY “HEAVIEST”. Bullshit to all the trainers who try to say that you can’t get a pull-up because you need to lose weight!

So if you are ready to ditch your diet and learn to trust yourself please check out my friend Summer’s program out. She now has a FREE Rock Your Body Video Series. Check it out HERE.

Love your body now. Stop waiting for life to happen. Make it happen. Be happy NOW!

P.S. I realize I said I wasn’t bloggin here anymore but until my new site is complete… I NEED AN OUTLET TO EXPRESS MYSELF…

    I’ve put on a fair amount of weight after breaking the horrible low-carb paleo diet which messed with my health. I can now handle cardio whereas before I used to get so out of breath and dizzy. It’s wonderful. I’m strong, happy and free. But I still struggle with certain things with my training. Yoga is harder as I have a tummy in the way and I have a bigger weight to pick up. Some exercises are harder because I’m carrying more weight. So, although now it’s easier to hike 15 km, I can’t do my other exercises any more. I can’t help getting discouraged. I want to accept myself the way I am, but some days it’s hard!

      Congrats on breaking the cycle and being free! The next step is to use positive self talk and affirmations to release the belief that you can’t do stuff. I use affirmations like: “I am light and exercise is easy for me” or “I feel light”. I have those days too but you have to accept that this is where you are and you are doing what you are doing. If you keep being positive rather then negative (reread your message) and eventually you will feel the way you think. I promise, it works. Thanks for reading!!!
