I was just away in Costa Rica on a personal retreat. I just got home and a few people who saw me could tell I was CHANGED. They assumed it was all the rest, relaxation and personal time without my family and my dream of seeing waterfalls, but they were wrong.
This special retreat required work. It was designed to create long-lasting change in the way that I think, feel, and act. We had assignments to do, and limiting beliefs to conquer, and at moments it was the most trying experience ever. Luckily, I was support by 7 other amazing women, and 2 stellar coaches who held my hand and support me every step of the way.
Someday when I’m feeling vulnerable I will share the gory details, but for now, all you get is these lovely pictures. They should express the freedom that I felt while spending a week working on ME.
Yes, I jumped into a waterfall! It was scary and exhilarating at the same time.
So now, let’s talk about YOU. What is stopping you from changing the way your body feels? Let me guess:
“I don’t have time right now I have too much on my plate.”
“I hate exercise.”
“The doctors keep telling me I have a back issue. I should probably take it easy.”
“Whenever I exercise it hurts my back. So it’s not the right solution for me.”
Do any of those ring true? If so, you’re in LUCK. I have a response:
These answers, are all bullshit.
I don’t swear often, but today, I am. I choose to swear because I am feeling as free as I did when I jumped into the waterfall.
Yup, I said it. I typed it. My editor is probably having a coronary reading this.
While I was away, I learned we tell ourselves a lot of stories; and most of them, are bullshit.
You absolutely have 25 minutes a day to dedicate to your body. You just aren’t making the time.
Hating exercise is bullshit. It’s an excuse. The right workouts are simple and effective, and won’t hurt you or even make you sweat too much.
Your doctors say you have a back issue? Why are you not in treatment? Probably because it’s not serious enough to stop exercising. Movement is the cure to MOST spinal issues. Physical therapists give exercises for recovery.
Whenever you exercise it hurts? Well that means you’re doing the wrong exercise. The VerticAlign programs are designed with the most sensitive of bodies in mind. You might’ve tried running, or spinning, or crossfit. These are all very tough on misaligned bodies.
If you feel like swearing back at me… comment below! And let me tell you that I am now really in love with waterfalls!
