LOVE the skin you're in

I feel like I'm one of those people who is always experiencing these dramatic "things" & really takes them to heart. But, I have my reasons.

This morning, I woke up & I got right to work on this new challenge group idea-- LOVE THE SKIN YOU'RE IN. I have been thinking so much lately about where I came from as far as health & fitness goes, where I was, where I am now, & where I'm headed.

I decided late last night that I would make a little mini series of photos explaining this group & how not only will we focus on our current health & fitness goals, but also, really think about our own self confidence. How we view & treat our own bodies.. & why.

As most of you know, I am a dancer. Without having to explain too much, we are constantly being judged by our aesthetic. Constantly being told to "suck in our stomachs" or we're poked and prodded and readjusted to create the most visually appealing lines... & none of this is accomplished by anything that would come across as natural to someone on the outside of the dance world.

In college, I weighed a whopping 98lbs, but I was still continuously trying to make myself look better. I would do crazy crash dieting. One time, all I ate was cottage cheese for a week before an audition... to this day, I cannot even look at a container of cottage cheese without wanting to gag! haha!

So, WHY... even though I had the body many people would kill for or spent HOURS in the gym trying to achieve.. why did I still lack so much confidence? Why was I still out to try and make myself something on the outside instead of really focusing on the inside? Was it just part of the job description?

Now, let's fast forward to when I was done performing & didn't have to focus solely on my appearance. When I didn't have to watch what I ate, had no pressure to look a certain way & weighed 137lbs. Was I happy or confident then?

NOPE. I was actually, quite miserable.

What is the factor that ties both of these situations together?

SELF. LOVE.

& in order to self love, we really have to actually know what LOVE means.

LOVE is not a feeling or an emotion. LOVE is not something that happens to us and gives us butterflies. LOVE is not what we say it is these days.

LOVE is quite actually.... a choice.

So, when I talk about SELF LOVE or the ability to LOVE THE SKIN YOU'RE IN... what does that actually look like?

It looks like where I find myself most of the time now.

to me, it looks like CHOOSING to eat an apple instead of cheese fries because I know I have only been given this body for a short amount of time & there are a lot of things I want to do with my life.

it also looks like CHOOSING to have that piece of cake or glass of wine because you worked hard & you deserve it.

it looks like CHOOSING BALANCE & not beating yourself up for wanting the fries or drinking the wine....but, looking in the mirror and saying....

I LOVE THIS VERSION OF ME BECAUSE IT IS WHERE I AM NOW.

but, also RECOGNIZING that you can go farther. that you are worth more. & that a healthy body-mind connection can unlock doors to a greatness you didn't even know existed!

As a coach, it is my job to help you achieve these things. I am currently taking applications for my NEXT GROUP: LOVE THE SKIN YOU'RE IN which kicks off prep week on February 15th! This group will last for a total of 4 weeks: 1 week of prep & 3 weeks where we hit the ground running & become more confident in the following areas:

*choosing WHOLE foods
*meal planning
*meal prepping
*exercising for at least 30 minutes at least 5 days/week
*choosing self love over self destruction
*becoming more grateful
*learning how to trust the process & LOVE yourself: no matter where you are in your journey

Whether you have 5 pounds or 50 pounds to lose, as your coach, I will be with you 100% of the way. this is truly going to be a LIFESTYLE CHANGE commitment, not a quick fix.

I am limiting this group to FIVE new challengers & would love to have you fill out the application below for more information on how to get started!

With any questions, please email me directly at tmolitierno@gmail.com

all my JOY
