It's taking everything inside me not to do a happy dance before we get into things, so let's get started!!!
 

THIS WEEK'S INTENTION:

STOP FIXING YOURSELF

 

I used to be driven by the need to fix myself so I could be the "healthiest" version of me possible. I'd restrict my food until all I could think about was the foods I wouldn't allow myself to eat. I'd overtrain my body until my hormones got all whack. The scariest part was that I was taught that this was normal.

A lot of the available information about getting healthy is dangerous for people like me. People who tend to get obsessive, perfectionistic, all-or-nothing or burn out easily don't do well with the kind of extreme fitness and diet culture recommendations that are touted all over social media.

Here's the reality: Working out and eating healthy shouldn't be a generalized process based on shaming rules and averaged metrics. And it definitely shouldn't be fueled by shame, guilt or judgment; it should be based on you as an individual.

But it's hard for health extremists to market that. If they keep you focused on "fixing" what they tell you is wrong with you, you never get to the juicy stuff; the stuff that breaks you free from the mindset that you'll never be enough unless you achieve what they say you should achieve. The stuff that actually allows you to get and stay healthy with ease and grace.

I'm here to tell you to stop fixing yourself. Because nothing's wrong with you. You've just been taught that you'll only be worthy if you conform to what they say is enough (aka performance health ideals).
 

True Health is achieved not by fixing yourself, but by coming back to yourself.


Your body knows what makes it feel good and what doesn't, but those connections got all mucked up by bad advice and judgy bullshit. Recovering those connections is a journey, especially if you don't know where to start or you never learned the actual, factual information about nutrition and exercise. That's where I want to come in and help. Here it is: *cue happy dance*

When I say this work is my jam, I freaking mean it. You know why? This is my chance to help you the way I wish someone had helped me back when I was struggling with this.

This program is the one I created for younger me. This is what I wish I'd had back when I was learning about health and fitness, AND when I was recovering from all the harmful things I'd done and been taught.

Whether you're starting fresh or want recovery from all the performance health bullshit you've been handed over the years, SIO Health Essentials has got your back. Check it out and let me know if you have any questions at all; just reply to this email!

And even if you don't choose to join us this time, I hope you'll give up on "fixing" yourself with us. 'Cause we think you're pretty awesome like this (even if you are working toward a goal).

Hugs n' fist bumps,

Welcome to the VIP section, babe! This is where I share my fav finds, happenings and thoughts from the week. Here's what's up in my world now:

Meditation - Truth time: I really let my daily meditation practice slip when Maya came along. In the last few weeks, I picked it back up again and it feels so good. Having those 10 minutes of stillness in the beginning of my day makes a big difference! I still use the Insight Timer app.

Danielle LaPorte planner - I just ordered mine for 2020 and I'm so excited! It's a great way to infuse intention into your work and check yourself on alignment with your Core Desired Feelings (her terms).

Stretching - I love stretching. Do I always do it? Ehhhh. I'm starting to feel when I don't, though. Let this be a universal reminder to stretchity stretch yourself before you wreckity wreck yourself.
