Hey, guess what? You are an authority. Yep, that’s right. YOU are the authority of your own body. There is no one else that knows your body in the way that you do and guess what? No one ever will.
Your body can (and does!) tell you exactly what it needs regarding food, exercise and rest. Cravings? Exhaustion? Digestive issues? Skin problems? These are all ways your body communicates with you. All you have to do is listen!
It’s my job as a future health coach to help you figure out what your body is telling you and guide you in taking action steps to achieve and maintain your wellness goals.
View yourself as an authority and you’ll be more inclined to care for yourself with respect. Be empowered and practice being an advocate for your own body and wellbeing. But just like any new skill, it takes time before it becomes second nature.
Speak up and ask questions whether at the doctor’s office, at the gym or with your health coach. I personally love to get questions from training clients as it’s much more valuable for them to understand the “whys” rather than the “how tos.”
If there is one thing I wish to teach people (and hope I already do in my Pilates and Booty Barre classes) is that it’s on you to make the change. No one else can do it for you. But you don’t have to do it alone. I’m thrilled to start working with health coaching clients soon! I’d love to help you change your body and more importantly how you FEEL about your body both internally and externally.
