Episode 15: Listen to Your Body When Exercising

Listen to Your Body When Exercising

In this episode I am focusing on principle 9, Exercise: Feel the Difference, as part of all 10 Intuitive Eating principles by Elyse Resch & Evelyn Tribole in their book Intuitive Eating

Do you suspect you have a disordered relationship with exercise? In the journey toward becoming an intuitive eater and ditching diets, exercise can be one of the last pieces people work on healing. 

We have to dig deep and ask ourselves...

🤷‍♀️Why did I choose the exercise I'm doing? 

🤷🏻‍♂️Am I exercising because I enjoy it or am I punishing myself for the way I ate last night? 

🤷‍♀️Do I actually enjoy the workouts I'm doing? 

🤷🏻‍♂️Do I push myself to workout when I'm exhausted, sick, hungover??

So many questions. If we're not enjoying our workouts, pushing ourselves to injuries, going all in for a few months and then completely stopping, fearful of missing workouts, and letting exercise take over our life the way dieting can do, it's time to evaluate exercise. 

In this episode I share my once-disordered relationship with exercise and the ways you can work through this part of the IE process.
