The 4th of July–“Independence Day”–is next week and it has me thinking a lot about freedom. If you look at the definition below, notice the words, “without hindrance or restraint”.
Always remember…You have the FREEDOM to treat your body with the utmost respect, only fueling it with the highest-quality foods & nutrients.
You have the FREEDOM to deny any meals you feel will not support you and your best self.
You have the FREEDOM to say “no”–and not feel guilted into saying, “yes”.
You have the FREEDOM to choose exactly how you get to spend each day from the time you step out of bed until when you go to sleep because not all 24 hours are created equal.
You have the FREEDOM to ask questions. “What goals do I want to achieve? Why do I want to achieve them? How will I get there? Who will it benefit? What is stopping me?”
You have the FREEDOM to feel however you want about yourself–confident, sexy, timid, scared, out of shape, bold, disappointed–and it is OK.
You have the FREEDOM to form opinions about what led you to be in the shape you are currently in, and make changes to those opinions to make a difference in your life.
You have the FREEDOM to dream.
You have the FREEDOM to feel like the best version of yourself, every day.
You have the FREEDOM to put yourself first, for without you, nothing else in your life is possible.
You have the FREEDOM to love yourself because if you don’t, who will?
You have the FREEDOM to treat yourself in moderation and enjoy the delicious things in life.
You have the FREEDOM to stay empowered and be an advocate of your own health.
and lastly…You have the FREEDOM to make the choices you want in life without any judgement from others, and the power to achieve the life that you want because it is what you and your body deserve.
MAKE IT A GREAT HOLIDAY.
