This week’s making peace with food tip is all about moving your body.
If the very thought of getting off the sofa, and slipping into something Lycra is enough to make you retreat back to the sofa, this tip is for you!
A recent study has shown that overweight women take 2,000 fewer steps per day than their happy-weight counterparts.
That number is worth repeating…
… 2,000 steps is what separates people who are happy with their shape and size vs those who are not.
Like to know the distance of 2,000 steps?
Four city blocks! How encouraging is that number?
Four city blocks stand between you and your happy shape and size.
We’re not talking about extreme exercise here.
We’re not even talking about having to buy a special Lyrca outfit!!!
We’re simply talking about good old-fashioned, one-foot-in-front-of-the-other walking.
And there’s no need to do all the steps all in one go.
For example, attempting to to do a 5km hill walk after a long period of zero movement is an excellent way to make yourself retreat back to the sofa.
So start well within your capacity, make your goal so tiddler small super small that you can’t help but achieve it.
Your body will thank you for it.
I hope you found that helpful. I look forward to seeing you next week with another Making Peace with Food tip.
