"I'll just keep hating on myself
and punishing my body
until I get skinny,
and then I'll somehow
magically like myself!!"
Is this you?
A lot of my clients come to me
because they've done the Whole100
and the 90 Day Bootcamp
and they still don't like themselves.
Then they find themselves
not exercising at all
and not eating any vegetables.
They went from authoritarian
To be more authoritative
and learn to LIKE YOURSELF
while moving your body
and eating great foods,
try working on your MINDSET.
Try this out:
1. 3 min journal before you workout
2. 15 min workout
3. 5 min journal after your workout
I teach my clients
to do this every day in
The Morning Crew.
You can learn to like yourself
BY MOVING YOUR BODY
but only if you deliberately
work on changing
your thoughts and beliefs.
You will not magically like yourself
once you lose 25lbs.
(I'm evidence of that!
Did everything to the max
and still hated myself!)
The Morning Crew is a 16-week
"I'll eat perfectly for 30 days
and then that will discipline me to
eat perfectly for life."
Is that the thought
that is running through your head
every time you decide to do a #Whole30?
I hear ya.
I used to do that too.
And after my 4th perfect Whole30
and the binge that followed,
I started shifting
my way of thinking.
Why did I have to keep restarting Whole30?
And why do I have
to keep doing them?
Like if it actually worked,
wouldn't I just know how to eat
Why do I keep bingeing after Whole30?
Instead of maximums that
you are only able to sustain
for a short period of time...
what about minimums
that you could sustainably do for life?
The books The Compound Effect,
and The Slight Edge teacher this message.
Seriously- the best books about healthy eating
have nothing to do with nutrition
but with habits,
thoughts and beliefs,
I have some helpful structure for your week,
but first, a story!
My mom and I have been walking together
every-ish day at 8:30am for the last 1.5 months.
My mom is a manager at a library,
and they've been closed for the last 2 months.
The first few weeks of being at home were novel at first.
No work! Yay- do whatever.
But then the weeks became heavy and formless.
I said, "Mom. I walk by myself in the morning.
Maybe we could start walking together??
Eh? Just walking."
I've had my habit of walking Jameson
and walking myself for the last 6 months,
so the habit changed just a lilttle bit
to add in my mom.
(On the phone. My mom lives an hour away!)
At 8:30am, we call each other.
And walk. And chat. And cry. And laugh.
We've been repeating
this for the last 1.5 months.
Today I called my mom at 8:32am,
confused why she hadn't called me yet.
Oh! She was on...
"I'm too old. It's too late."
Have you ever said that?
I can remember saying that at age 17 about starting a new sport...
At age 24 about finding a life partner...
At age 30 about figuring out a new career...
And I'm sure several times throughout my 20s about becoming a runner...
Bruce McIntosh started running at age 38 and started his podcast at age 53.
He's now completed 34 half marathons,
1 virtual half marathon,
12 full marathons,
and over 85 episodes of his podcast,
Justa Runners Podcast (including an interview with Deena Kastor!)
He's an inspiration to run and really to do anything in life.
You can do anything you want. At any age. You just have to start.
How to stop being stuck: just start something small!
Something you actually like.
Repeat, repeat, repeat.
Trial and error.
Figure out a system that makes sense.
And repeat, repeat, repeat.
Lyn was on my podast 2 years ago! Episode 24!
So much has changed in the last 2 years!
I recorded our first episode
living in a tiny studio apartment in Atlanta
while sitting on a camping chair.
The podcast has grown over the last 2.5 years,
but only because I started back then, found something I liked,
created a system that made sense to me, and repeat, repeat, repeat.
Lyn and I chat about getting started with movement
and being active, especially during a pandemic!
"What actually makes us healthy?"
An interesting question to ask yourself right about now!
Do you need to be training for a marathon or an utlra right now?
Do you need to be going hard and "killing" your body with an intense workout?
Or does your body just need movement?
HEY! Did you decide to start running because it's one of the few ways you can exercise during the pandemic? Welcome! Now let's talk about keeping your body safe so that you can actually run and run well.
No, I'm not talking about speed here. I'm talking about helping, protecting, and strengthening your body... Something not really mentioned in the Couch to 5k program.
A convo with my day:
My dad- So you have to exercise so that you can exercise?
Me- Yeah. Basically.
Erika Tabur has 10 years of experience as a personal trainer and has seen waaaaaay too many people go from couch to 5k to physical therapy.
(And let's be honest- a lot of people just back to the couch again and scratch any form of movement!)
We chat about how to keep your body safe and Erika shares her own recovery journey and how she's finally back to running! Baby steps there.

If you feel gross from food while working from home, you’re not alone!
And no, you don’t need to do a restrictive diet to feel better.
It’s actually completely normal to
Authoritarian (strict rules- like when you’re at your work building or on a diet)
Permissive (like laying in pajamas all day or eating ice cream, pizza, and cookies all day.)
Authoritarian doesn’t really feel good and permissive doesn’t feel good…
But there is something else which is
Authoritative- you set yourself up with some flexible guidelines
To help you feel good and not gross!
We might think that snacking on crackers all day is going to help us feel better,
But we usually just feel physically shitty and then beat ourselves up.
