TWR 059: Why Women Feel Triggered with Fitness Challenges

People who have always been on the fence with their body image can get really triggered with 8-week-programs5-day-challenges, and all sorts of these offers that exist on the internet. You know, chronic dieters really struggle with self-belief, confidence, and conviction so when they see themselves wanting to commit to something, they get really frustrated and afraid of not being able to go all in.

In this episode of The Wellness Revolution Podcast, Amber gives you a pep talk if you are one of these chronic dieters who are bombarded with all kinds of challenges and programs on social media. Amber explains that you cannot fail if you lower your expectations and change the word ‘perfection’ to ‘consistency’. Everything seems easier when we abandon the many attempts of doing things flawlessly.

  • Amber explains that if you are listening and you see yourself as one of these examples, know that it’s ok and these are real feelings you shouldn’t be ashamed of;
  • Trying to follow these programs with consistency instead of perfection and always keep moving forward is the antidote of not failing.
