IN THIS SOLO EPISODE I’M SHARING:
How exercise was modeled to me growing up
How this formulated my relationship with fitness
How being an athlete became a large part of my identity
The stereotypes we have of personal trainers & fitness industry professionals, imprinted from diet culture
The positive + negative effects of being an athlete
The experiences I had, that showed me how I had value
I didn’t know that my values was independent of my performance & appearance
Where I learned “smaller is better”
Adopting exercise as a coping strategy that evolved into a compulsion
How my relationship with exercise has evolved from control/keeping myself small → to feeling empowered
Believing I needed to suffer in order to earn approval, acceptance, love, belonging
Questions I am asking myself:
- Why am I exercising right now?
- Am I doing it to feel empowered and connected to myself?
- Or am I doing it to control/manipulate my body? Because I feel obligated to?
- How will this exercise make me feel after? Empowered? Disempowered?
