I do! Most days...but it's still something I work on daily.
And this is why I really want to share this message with my girls and every woman out there!
This is something I struggled with a lot growing up
I was a tiny toddler, but after I got my appendix out when I was three, I got "round" (that's what I was told anyways)
I loved food and reading and crafts; I was slightly over weight. I wasn't very athletic, even though I enjoyed sports and played on every team. You see, I didn't make the team cut for my talent, I usually made the cut for my attitude and team spirit. I was great at cheering on others, meanwhile struggling to motivate myself and be truly happy.
I was a sugar addict!!!
I remember in Grade 6 and 7, I would take money from my piggy bank almost daily to go buy penny candy at the corner store during lunch.
So fast forward to grade 11, I was at my heaviest >>> 140 lbs (I'm only 5 feet tall). I was uncomfortable in my own skin.
I'd go to reach for dessert or seconds at family functions and get asked if it was necessary. So I wouldn't eat dessert, not in front of the guests anyways, but later on, when everyone was gone and no one was watching, I'd have a double serving straight from the fridge.
Finding fitness in high school truly changed my life; It helped me come out of my shell, gain confidence and a passion for physical education and health. I realized that I could be in control of my well-being, that I could truly feel GOOD about my body! I rocked that prom dress and went on to pursue a degree in Phys Ed & Health at U of T!
BUT, since then, I was been living in fear of slipping back... a fear that I don't ever want my daughters to experience. A fear I know I need to PUNCH IN THE FACE!
Fast Forward to TODAY >>> That's where coaching comes in!
I get to help other woman find their inner beautiful badass, learn to love themselves, and link arms with them as we pursue our goals towards a healthier and happier life. I am working on trusting the process, embracing the journey and becoming a better version of myself than I was yesterday. This is what I want to demonstrate for my girls on the daily! This is the message I want them to take into their futures.
Do you struggle with confidence and self love?
