Rumors are true – it’s finally here. When I first started this journey, I was the girl buying guide after guide, searching for that “perfect fit,” - no pun intended.
Enter Lindsey, circa 2014: I was hesitant to try BBG, but it seemed like everyone else was doing it, not to mention seeing great results, so I purchased. The problem? I made it a solid two weeks before I lost interest and fell off track. I became discouraged and blamed myself for lack of self-discipline. And maybe SOME of it was lack of discipline – but the truth is, if you’re forcing yourself to do workouts that you don’t enjoy, you’re missing the point of working out at all. I can’t tell you how many times I started BBG with the intention of finishing, only to become frustrated and quit each time.
I explored what seemed like every other “fit girl” guide out there. I won’t even tell you how much money I spent. I did find some success with guides that allowed me to fall in love with weight-based workout. Even so, I still felt as if something were missing.
It wasn’t until earlier this year that I realized WHY I felt this way. The more I research and the more I devote to making this a lifestyle, the more I realize that physical health is only part of it. What about mental health? Emotional health? Spiritual health? Why was I only encouraged to focus on my physical gains and not my mental ones?
And what about food? How was I supposed to know what to eat? There was so much conflicting evidence on Instagram. Do I eat fruit or is it too high in sugar? Do I eat the avocado or is it too high in saturated fat? Is it okay to count calories if I’m discounting nutrients? Social media has such a way of overcomplicating what our ancestors have known for a long time: eat real food.
So then I thought: what if instead of constantly focusing on trying to change our bodies, we focused on truly taking care of our bodies? What if there was a guide that incorporated body, mind, and soul?
That’s why I created the InHerStrength Guide. The focus is change, yes. But tapping into how you’re feeling, how you’re fueling, and how you’re finding happiness at every step in your wellness journey. HOW?
