Hi, my name is Gretchen and I am a recovering "getting ready for bikini season" addict. In the past, once spring hit, I would start working out harder and more frequently to "look good" in my bathing suit, punishing myself with physical activity when impossible standards weren't met! The lasting damage to my mental health is something I still work on.
It is no wonder that I am now a lifecoach and fitness educator with a passion for BODY FREEDOM and helping everyone understand that they are more than their body. Our bodies are tools to carry us through life and help us reach our goals & dreams! This doesn't mean we get to igonore our body's need for physical movement though. It means we are responsible for being good stewards of our physical self so that we can actually DO what we want to DO!
So how do we NOT worry about looking a certain way, but make sure we move our bodies enough to prevent disease?
In the 100 Days of Summer Challenge, you are asked to simply MOVE ANY AMOUNT for 100 days in a row. I am TOTALLY SERIOUS by the way. Don't want to get off the couch, but make the decision to walk outside and get the mail?? Count it!! Play at the park with kids instead of scrolling social media?? Count it!!
The whole point is to create a HABIT out of choosing movement and making it a lifestyle instead of something that is coated with toxins of punishment, self-loathing and disrespect. Now, let's get down to business! In this PDF you will find 100 ideas with all kinds of links and other info that will help you stay motivated. You will also find a printable tracker chart and even a certificate for when you finish!!!
