Episode Info:

In my community, it's common for folks to still view exercise and fitness from a place of restriction and punishment. And no wonder. Look around at advertising and the messages out there that movement is solely for burning calories or making up for what we ate, like physical penance. So many of us grew up with this mentality that it can be hard to envision any other way.

In this episode, I'm pulling apart four unhelpful ways of looking at exercise and digging into how each is ultimately harmful and takes you away from what's right for you. Is it possible to see fitness and movement in general from a place where you nourish yourself? I say yes. It doesn't mean you can't ever do hard things or that exercise isn't uncomfortable at times...those are powerful experiences.
