I have a cleanse I want you to try but you won't need a Magic Bullet or a Vitamix for this one. No powders, no greens...you don't even need water. Why??
Because THIS is a cleanse to help you re-program your MIND.
In the past 6 months of working with new clients and speaking to groups of women, I see just how much time, energy, and money women spend to pursue the perfect body...relentlessly.
It's as if constantly obsessing, discussing, and thinking about our bodies is just part of being a woman.
We focus on losing weight like it's our JOB...with a high six-figure salary, and a 50% bonus.
Guess what? It's not. Then why the hell do we do it?
We do it because we've been BRAINWASHED...big time!
We've been convinced that, if you DON'T have the perfect body, you're somehow unacceptable, not beautiful, not enough.
The good news about this brainwashing situation is that you can re-program yourself. The not-so-good news: you'll have to invest time, energy, and maybe a little money.
You will not be able to reverse decades of brainwashing overnight. This is one of the zillion reasons that quick fixes and fad diets FAIL miserably. Simply changing the way you eat and exercise without changing the underlying thoughts is a recipe for hitting the reset button every Monday morning for the rest of your life. And that would SUCK.
Here's a DIY mind cleanse you can do at home:
#1: Become aware: You know you've been brainwashed if you've EVER associated your weight or dress size with happiness or self-worth. Now that you can acknowledge it, you can do something about it.
#2: Feed your mind with books, audios, and videos that don't associate the way you look with WHO you are. You must do this DAILY so that you can gradually drown out the old way of thinking. Consistency is the key to success with anything. Don't half-ass it.
#3: Re-focus: You know all that energy, time, and money you put into trying to fix yourself every day?? Take it and put it towards something FUN that will actually enhance your life, like taking dance lessons or learning a new language.
#4: Write down 3 things you need to believe about yourself, and read them every day. Here are my 3:
-my weight/size don't determine my value as a person
-I'm freaking AMAZING at any size
-I will spend most of my time and energy on creating my ideal life, not chasing my ideal weight
Here's what I want you to do: for the next 30 days, do this cleanse for 15 minutes a day to help you re-program the thoughts and beliefs that keep you comfortably miserable and holding off on living your best life.
Whatever you decide, just DO something. Taking action today will get you one step closer to living a kick-ass life and many steps away from the frustration, pain, and exhaustion of trying to live up to someone else's standards.
Imagine if all women did this. There would be a NEW standard. It's time to start a MOVEMENT, ladies. I hope you'll come along with me.
