I used to tell myself how much I hated my body.
Ever since I gained weight with my pregnancy, I had trouble loving the body I had.
I was frustrated, disappointed, and frankly, I felt like a failure.
But the fitness industry and social media are constantly showing us their "ideal" body type.
And while the ideal looks beautiful and shiny, we may not appreciate ourselves because we can get stuck in a comparison trap...
Contrary to what you see online, every effort you make is enough!
The road to fitness isn't about becoming the "ideal," but it is about starting and being in a place where you let your expectations go to make room for consistency.
In this episode, we welcome fitness trainer Marianna Kane.
We talk about how women can overcome their fear of pain and get back into fitness.
Marianne highlights the issue of perfectionism in the fitness industry and how you can overcome it.
I found that her observations were a lot similar to my own experiences in weight loss.
The advice she gives on how to enjoy fitness and love yourself while making progress is helpful to all of us.
Change your mindset about your body and learn how to start exercising in this episode!
