On one hand, when we can’t resolve or overcome the issues that hold us back from losing weight, our self-worth and ability to love ourselves grows weaker, which triggers us to engage in the unhealthy habits that ultimately led us to gain the weight in the first place.
Then, we look in the mirror, we get different reactions from those around us when we interact with them, we realize we aren’t happy with the way we look and feel, and the snowball keeps growing.
Our bodies become unhealthy and stop working right. We can’t sleep properly and our skin is not looking so good either—and let’s not even mention that our jeans just don’t fit right.
If we don’t do something drastic to break the cycle, your little snowball can become an avalanche before you know it.
What’s the Blowtorch?
Consider this challenge sort of a blowtorch to your snowball. First things first—we need to stop beating ourselves up and start loving ourselves instead. This seems much harder than it sounds when we really try it, but that’s part of what we’ll be working on in the Love Yourself challenge.
If you’re like me, you could always use a good excuse to workout—and one that keeps you motivated, too! That’s why I’ve decided to launch Project Blissful’s first-ever 60-day fitness challenge.
While it’s my ultimate mission to help others learn to create their ideal lives and to become the best possible versions of themselves, my motivation for this challenge is not solely altruistic.
Truth is, I could use the motivation too. And, like any fitness challenge, this one will mean that I can have a certain amount of accountability–public accountability.
Why The Love Yourself 60-Day Fitness Challenge is Different
Because it’s more than just your physical body we’re out to fix here. Project Blissful is all about a whole-life, whole-self approach—so during this challenge, we’ll also be focusing on a few other life fixes.
Because you’ll get real support and encouragement from me and others, and you’ll offer some in return. Good karma, you know.
Because you are very likely to make new (or strengthen existing) lifelong friend connections. (Remember my Fit & Fabulous girls?)
Because you can customize the challenge completely to fit your own personal needs, and Project Blissful will help you get it done.
Because you can participate completely free if you choose. While I will share information about the products and services I use from time-to-time, you will not ever be under any obligation to purchase or use the specific items I recommend. There’s no charge for participation, including free group membership, and free newsletters and other program literature.
Remember, being out-of-shape or overweight is a symptom of something else that’s happening in your life. Sometimes it’s physical, and in those cases, you’ll need to talk with your doctor about how to resolve the problem.
More often, the problem starts in our own heads. Besides the fact that we are often acclimated to unhealthy lifestyle choices from childhood, many of us have deeper issues that we are literally wearing on our bodies.
And, statistically, that means many of us have struggled (or continue to struggle) with our own self-worth.
February is Love Yourself Month, and what better day to start loving yourself than Feb. 14, Valentine’s Day?
