While, Wired has only been around for 3 years, I've spent my entire career focused on health and wellness. And, I can honestly say that not a single week has passed without at least one woman telling a story of how their perception of themselves is shaped by their weight (and age). Recently, at a party a woman told me that she "hated her body." Just recalling her face and the self-imposed internal struggle makes me sad.
As you know, culture and trauma are only a few of the many forces that can steal a woman's access to her true power and beauty. I'm always looking for tools and resources to help women celebrate their bodies and their lives. With that in mind, I want to let you know about "Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body, an important and insightful book from Roxane Gay.
“When you’re overweight, your body becomes a matter of public record in many respects. Your body is constantly and prominently on display. People project assumed narratives onto your body and are not at all interest in the truth of your body, whatever that truth might be. Fat, much like skin color, is something you cannot hide, no matter how dark the clothing you wear, or how diligently you avoid horizontal stripes.”
When it comes to getting your best body, do you say to yourself, “One of these days?” How many times have you said to yourself, “What are you waiting for?” Yet, time marches on while your busy schedule keeps you from achieving your fitness goals.
Being proactive with your fitness and health begins with your decision to do something specific and intentional. Otherwise, you’re just “hanging back” from your ability to be fit & healthy, less stressed, and awesome!
At Wired, with a supportive environment, science-based training, and performance measuring technology, we can help you find more balance between your “observational self” and your “proactive self.” We believe that small steps that are measured and evaluated lead to big changes. Our classes allow you to track your performance, heart rate, and calorie count during class, followed by an automatic email to you with your results to help you keep track of your fitness history.
Come to Wired and take ownership of your fitness goals—It’s okay to be “All about you when it comes to your health!”
Yesterday, I was asked if I were still on the “46-day diet.” I replied, “It isn’t a diet, rather, a renewed commitment to better self-care and self-protection.” As we all know, we are wired for self-protection. Just think about the time when you had to brace yourself because you thought a friend or family member drove too fast or took a last minute push through an intersection on a yellow light. It is our natural inclination to be safe from harm—to avoid danger.
Yet, somehow, the taste of great carbs and sugar seem to overpower our natural instincts and personal desire to live without disease. So, as we move forward on this journey, let’s keep in mind that with our need for self-protection and our focus on self-care, we have the tools we need to remain vigilant about our health and wellness.
