First, foremost, and of the UTMOST importance is this. Read it. Heed it. Spread the word.
Sure some of it is kind of silly (as if we’re gonna show up for yoga class with our feet crammed into golf shoes) but if it stops just one person from yanking the lat pulldown bar *behind* her head I shall be a happy woman.
(unsure what a lat pull down even IS? stay tuned.)
And Im beyond curious to learn what you think about this food information website.
It’s definitely far too much info for MizFit as I dont want to know every single thing about every single morsel I pop in my mouth. (One word: orthorexia) but there are a lot of interesting and helpful tidbits to be found if you explore it for a while.
For example: who knew that a Dominos 14 inch cheese pizza has the fat equivalent of a stick of butter (Im skeptical. can that even be right? I’d have guesstimated at least three and a quarter) and would take MizFit eighteen hours of bowling to burn off.
Talk about preventing overeating. Eighteen hours of bowling? 21 hours of pushing a stroller? I’ll have a salad.
Link lastly, this has been a few places lately but mainly of the teen variety so you might not have seen it. As much as I want to mock it—–I really, really like it. Especially the part about the voice in your head saying things to YOU which you’d never say to a friend.
Not surprisingly this isnt just a young person’s issue & was something I encountered daily when I was a personal trainer.
Funny, beautiful, smart, women who walked around with chatter in their heads which mightcould make a sailor blush. All directed at themselves.
The saddest part? Many of these women were mothers and, after meeting their daughters, I could see the beginning of the same negative self talk emerging in their funny, beautiful, smart little heads.
It’s like the exercise and eating right: we’re here for the HEALTH of it all. Because—as our first emailer pointed out—-we are worth it and so are our families.
The negative self talk crap? It’s time to get over it and MOVE ON.
If not for yourself then do it for those who love you.
Enough of the serious and on to the freebie.
Ill spare you the love-fest because it’s been done.
I wont spare you the rant about how GENEROUS she is to create this one of a kind hat just for the MizFits.
You know the drill. It can be yours for the price of one comment.
One shout out to yourself of nice positive self love.
Ill start you off:
I ADORE MY arms. I love how they never fail me when the Toddler Tornado is shrieking UP UP UP and thisclose to clawing my legs off.
