Let's talk about WEIGHT.
The number one most obsessed over topic... ever.
If you've ever struggled with losing weight, gaining weight, obsessing over weight, etc. today's episode is for you.
"How heavy do you think you could get, with your partner still loving you?"
This is the question that sparked it all for today's guest, Alicia Wood.
After a conversation with friends, where this came up, Alicia made the decision to take control of her health and finally love who she was on the inside. This led to her pursuing a career as a fitness and mindset coach.
The biggest mistake I see clients make is believing that it's all about diet and exercise. Yes, you do need to be eating healthier foods, but if you don't work on the way you see yourself first, then you won't end up with the results you want.
Alicia Wood is the founder and CEO of Camp Fuel, a wellness company that empowers individuals and teams to achieve their goals through movement, play, mindset and community. She is a speaker, a corporate wellness consultant, as well as a fitness and mindset coach. She loves helping leaders create inclusive engaging environments so that employees can feel empowered to step up and to thrive in the workplace. She provides simple action oriented strategies to help teams boost mental and physical health imagination, creativity, and innovation so that they can accelerate performance. Alicia is also the host of a top rated podcast, the Fuel Your Fire podcast, which I was fortunate to be a guest on!
You can be sitting down and eating a delicious kale salad that is loaded with all of these delicious things. But if you're thinking to yourself, "I hate myself, I don't deserve to eat food", your body will have a negative physiological reaction. And you won't even get all the nutrients from that salad because your body is in fight or flight mode.
