Grit: What To Do When You’re Fat

Grit: What To Do When You’re Fat

SHOW NOTES

You step on to your bathroom scale, the room gets dim, and as you see the higher than expected number, a blood curdling scream comes out…YOU ARE FAT is written on the mirror in chocolate. (A little dramatic but did I get the tone right?)

Look, YOU are not fat; you just have fat. And there is absolutely no human trait directly related to extra adipose tissue. But it is normal to have a weight range (an amount of fat) you are comfortable with, and when that number has creeped up, it’s also normal to feel uncomfy.

So, like, what do you do?

First, DONT FREAK THE FUCK OUT. It is what it is; don’t let it take over your personality, don’t jump to extremes, don’t hop aboard the yo yo diet train... Just calmly and collectively make your way to step two.

CURIOSITY AND CALM COURSE COLLECTION. Hmmmm, this fat didn't get here all on its own; something happened. But what? Reflect on your habits, make a hypothesis, and then test that hypothesis in a calm, simple way.

Lastly, all the while…DO IT FAT. (By IT, I mean life, sex, self love, shopping, beach trips, you name it.) Don’t put your life on hold for a thinner self; ultimately, the confidence and self love you need to become thin happens when you’re fat.

But for real, letting your habits slip is not evil, consuming more calories than you’re expending does not make you a bad person. It’s all just information.

Goal: Break Through To The Next Stage of Your Fitness Journey

SHOW NOTES

Excuse me while I hop onto my soapbox.

Whether you’re lost, confused, or stuck...regardless of where you’re at on your journey you CAN feel confident, in control, and kick ass.

I used to be a big fan of the (get ready to sound super sciency) Transtheoretical Model of Behavior Change, as I helped my clients move through their fitness journey. But I realized it doesn’t have to be this rinse, repeat cycle of back to square one.

Let’s look at fitness like the stages of life, maybe you’re an emerging MF’er (Master of Fitness that is), a feisty teen, or making your way to a full-grown ass adult.

Whatever spot you find yourself in I’m letting you in on the skills and tools to keep pushing and love yourself right where you’re at. Because it’s okay (it’s even great) to be confident in yourself and still want to grow and change.

Look, I'm not promising it’s gonna be easy but I AM saying that if you conquer your physical health, the effects are bound to ripple through the rest of your life. *steps off soapbox*

If you’re curious about where I’d place you on your journey take my quiz at Fit Feels Good.

WHAT’S INSIDE:

  • What the heck is the Transtheoretical Model of Behavior Change?
  • Oonagh’s guide to fitness as the stages of life.
  • The tools and skills you need to be a MF’er.
  • The key to loving yourself AND wanting to grow.

Where are you in the fitness stage of life?
