No More Bondage: Finding Your Freedom

We’re celebrating freedom this week.  I’m proud to be an American.  While I have enjoyed this freedom from birth, I’ve not always lived in freedom as it relates to my health and fitness.

So Why Fit and Free?

Freedom

It was something I always longed for.  Several years ago all I did was chase freedom.  When I would see the word, I’d perk up.  I would read anything that boasted ways to be free.  

What did it feel like to be free??  

I wanted to feel it and live it.  I wanted to be free from the voices in my head.  Free from the bondage of comparison and self-hate.  Free from the numbers.  

Surely I could live a fit and healthy lifestyle and still live in freedom?

How Fit and Free?  

You have to diet and exercise and follow a eating plan and a schedule, right?  Isn’t a healthy life filled with lots of “I can’t eat that” and “I have to exercise x amount of times everyday”?  Doesn’t it mean I have to skip parties and celebrations and have to do workouts I don’t love?

Wrong.  

Being fit doesn’t mean that you have to live in bondage.  Whether it be bondage to numbers or tupperwares or plans or programs.  

Yes, you do have to have boundaries.  But boundaries are not bondage.  Boundaries provide safety.  And you get to decide where those boundaries are depending on your goals and your unique body.   

Now what?

I’ve been on this journey a long time.  I’ve had many struggles.  And I’ve certainly cried many tears.  Too many in fact! But, I’ve learned so many lessons.  I’m now answering the call to share it with you in hopes that I can help you “turn north” just as I finally did.  

It starts with being a detective of you!  Not looking at what everyone else is doing and selling but honoring the body you’ve been given.

  1. I love this post! <3 So very much agreed–boundaries are good to have, but they definitely don't mean forbidden/forever restricted!
