Fit Friday with Nichole 

Valentines Day is upon us and we decided that was the perfect day for a Fit (un)Friday post. On a day where we tend to focus on that special someone and love that we share, or don’t share as the case may be for some of you, we sometimes forget about the most important person in our lives to love. Ourself. 

I cannot adequtely love anyone else if I do not first and foremost have love for myself. 

For today’s purpose we are going to talk specifically about loving our bodies. I know that your body is not WHO you are, but it is a piece of who you are.  We have all heard that we should love our bodies. We should be grateful for our bodies. And all of those “right” answers when asked. But knowing it and living it, believing it are two different things indeed. 

So today we are focusing on small ways to love and appreciate your body. Before you can really go down this path, you have to want to. I am not including that in my ways to love your body, I hope that if you are reading this you are already committed to wanting to.

1. Get to know your body. Learn to listen to your body and respect it. When your body tells you it is tired, slow down. When your body tells you it feels great, do something to celebrate it (go for a run, go dancing, move your body in a way that makes you happy). If you have been here for a minute you know that I am constantly harping on this one, know your body!

2. Stop comparing yourself to others. In order to appreciate what you have you have to focus on what you have. Not what Sally has (or doesn’t have). 

3. Stop judging other people’s bodies. For you to learn to love your body, you need to stop judging other people based on their bodies. When you criticize another person’s body, you send the message—both to them and to yourself—that bodies are a valid measure of a person’s value.
4. Make exercise about feeling good. Exercise is a natural way to increase energy, reduce stress, and keep our bodies healthy. But when we look at exercise as a weight loss or body-shaping tool, we turn something that’s nourishing into something that’s hurtful and even hateful toward our body. Exercise as a way to love your body—not as a way to change or fight it
5. Cleanse your social media. Choose to feel your mind and time with positive images and messages. Messages that are filled with unrealistic models telling you how to lose weight, fit into those jeans, or live the perfect life are not the way to find a love and peace with your body.
There are so many other things you can be doing, these are the five that I am choosing to focus on today, this day of love!

  2. Sift together flour and nutmeg.
  3. In a medium sauce pan, melt butter.
