This week I got a question from a 14yr old girl asking me how to be skinny. She asked me to give her a schedule of diet and exercise. Here it is:
- Look in the mirror and list everything you love about your body.
- Avoid sugar.
- Do something you love and that makes you laugh.
- Make someone else laugh.
- Throw away all fashion/women’s magazines.
- Get active doing something you enjoy, dancing, surfing, running, building, fixing, yoga, tidying, whatever makes you happy and smiley.
- Shop for clothes that look good on you, dont look at the size, just find what fits well.
- Throw away your scale.
- Eat less red meat.
- Drink 2ltrs of water.
- Make a list of everything you’re grateful for.
- Find ways to make other people happy.
- Commit random acts of kindness.
- Never say anything to yourself that you wouldnt say to a friend or loved one.
- Accept yourself and know that you are and will always be, good enough.
- Focus on becoming strong and healthy, the weight will take care of itself.
Repeat Tuesday to Sunday.
