BECAUSE I'M PERFECT. 16 Oct 2014

Lauren & Mars

Today I'm rapping about body love and words of wisdom from a toddler...

I think my three year old son Mars is soo cute. Like, I could just eat him up. When I ask him why he's so cute, he responds, "Because I'm perfect!" (!!!!?????!!). Now, I've never told him that he's perfect, but he truly believes that he is. And, as his mom, I really feel like I'm doing something right, which is not always the case. You can imagine my reaction when I heard that for the first time. I mean, how fantastic is that? And, he inspires me – my little boy has not one ounce of negativity in his head.  He really loves himself and thinks he's just perfect. We all should have that high level of self-love, right?

Many of us are finishing up our Fall Transformation (myself included), and some of us are just getting back into the studio, post-summer. Recently, there's been a lot of talk about our Stop Bitch moments, body image, what other Lithers do, do too much of, or don't do enough of, and what it means to be healthy and empowered. But behind all of this talk about being Lithe lies the heart of what it means to be healthy: Loving the skin you’re in, treating yourself right, and feeling empowered to question, challenge, and redefine your own self-view of beauty and wellness.  Loving the body you have, and working to improve your health and head is so important. In fact, many of you are already super-confident and intuitive. Here are a few emails that I've received over the past few weeks: 


Being healthy shouldn’t be about appearance, it should be about health.  

I'm all about improving myself and becoming healthy and fit.  Almost everyone I know should spend more time working out, and making lifestyle changes.  It's everything! 

Once I let go of trying to be thin and focused on the idea of loving my body, I became healthier.

This Fall Transformation has taught me so much about myself and my level of commitment.  I've never felt so great about myself.  I feel like me again.  I'm unstoppable!

Here’s what I think about loving your body. As women, we all struggle with self-confidence. There are always those little things we wish we could change about our bodies. Whether it’s wishing we had a six-pack, more defined arms,  or thinner thighs.  My approach has always been accept it, or act to change it. Because of this, I have always used my "imperfections" as motivation to work harder. Over the years I've learned to love and respect my body for what it is because it has been so good to me. It's gotten me through almost ten injury-free years of Lithe and allows me to burn the candle at both ends and work hard when I need to. It has given me my Mars, it takes me on walks every day, helps me sail a 50-foot catamaran every summer, and feels so strong invincible when I Lithe. 

And, in exchange, I treat my body the very best that I can. I live a healthy, balanced lifestyle by staying active and eating well. I let it rest at night, take Epsom baths and stretch to keep it flexible. On the weekends I have fun, give in to my cravings and just let go. 

So, this fall, as you're working towards your best you, remember that it does not mean that you're working to fit into a particular mold. Not a certain weight, size, or shape: YOU are perfect. Make that your mantra! You're working towards building that confidence muscle – which is the best possible way to learn to love the skin you’re in.

SAYEH'S LIVING LITHE! 8 Oct 2014

  Sayeh

Welp! It happened. I have officially screwed up the #sexierinsix Lithe transformation. For me it's been more like #sexierinacoupleofclassesandthenohyouknowwhatjustforgetit. I missed a day here, a day there, got hit with an unexpected trip back home to Dallas amid the Ebola scare (no one watch Outbreak right now), and I'm officially back to eating donuts at work and not scheduling myself any Lithe classes. Because as I've thoroughly documented, I can't ramp up the eating if my working out is falling off. Oh no. That would be too sensible. No class means, I'll take the fried chicken instead of the grilled and yes, yes I DO feel like ordering pizza tonight, and no I don't mind if I do eat an entire block of cheese while watching the Real Housewives of Melbourne reunion. 

But, aside from my trip, which would have made it tough to accomplish the challenge, I know there are a few things I could have done better to set myself up for success.

1. Schedule my classes ahead of time.

I usually do this to avoid wait lists and have my schedule set, but work has been so unpredictable lately that I've been racking up late cancellation fees, so I thought...I'll just schedule my classes on the day OF, so I can avoid those fees and the inevitable self-hate that comes along with having the late cancellation on my permanent Lithe record. And while this has helped me to save money, it has made it so that I have no reason to force myself to class. At the end of a long day, even when I get out of work in time to go to class, it's so much easier to go home than get on my app and schedule myself something. I underestimated how much the threat of late cancellation motivates me to Lithe. This is certainly a balancing act during crazy times at work–because I truly can't afford to pay late fees willy nilly, but I also can't afford–for mind and body–to continuously skip Lithe and fall into bad habits all around either. 

2. Clothes, clothes everywhere. 

Although this is cliche because it's on every workout tip list, I found it totally true this challenge go-round.  I need to have multiple sets of workout clothes at my disposal to ensure I'm ready to hit the studio when scheduled. At work, at home and I would have some in my car, if I owned one. I twice walked out of my house in a rush and realized I left my workout bag at the foot of my bed, making it impossible for me to go to class. And on one of the days that I remembered my clothes, I realized I hadn't packed my sports bra! (Thank God I was taking Armistice instead of Rock Steady that day and made it work, but it was touch and go there for a bit in terms of a wardrobe malfunction.) Had I had some clothes at work, I could have grabbed the extra sports bra, or still have gone to class on the days I forgot my bag. Don't get me wrong, I certainly can't afford 7 pairs of Wunder Unders to strew about town, but I do have a few less exciting sets of clothes that I can afford to have around in case of an emergency. 

3. Wake up, wake up, wake up

I KNOW that I have much less control of my afternoon than I do of my morning. I get pulled into 5 o'clock meetings which means I won't make my 5:45pm class, or the cable guy needs to come by and replace my box, or my girlfriends want to meet for happy hour, or I have to attend an event for work...the list goes on. I know that if I wake up early and get my workout in FIRST, then any unforeseen or foreseen circumstance won't bump Lithe down the list. I try to fit my entire life between the hours of 5 and 10pm–spending time with my husband, friends, cooking, working out, fulfilling work obligations, dealing with life in general (And I don't even have kids! God bless all my friends who do all of the above and are raising and scuttling multiple kids to all of their life things.) And it's too much to ask of those 5 hours. I need to add a couple hours in the morning to balance things out a bit. But GOD it's so much easier said than done. I'm a night owl, not a morning person and braving the darkness and the elements in the morning to make it to the studio seems downright impossible to me.

Overall, this has been a good learning experience for me. I'm going to keep on keeping on and will continue to strive to keep my priorities in order and hopefully work on all of the above to create less work and guilt for myself on the other end. I guess the key that I need to keep reminding myself is that doing so takes careful, considered and consistent effort which is ultimately why it's can be so hard to sustain at times.

See you in class!

WALK-STAR TIPS! 23 Sep 2014

*Turn up the volume so you can hear me - The fountain is super loud...

Our Fall Transformation Lithers are getting #SexierInSix by adding an additional 20-30 minute Lithe Walk-Star (ankle weights optional) to their schedules up to six days a week for six weeks. They are also receiving videos and tips via email on a daily basis, but we'll be posting them live a week later so that everyone can benefit!  Stay tuned for more! 

STEP-RALLY (OUTDOOR) 18 Sep 2014

STEPRALLY

Our newest outdoor workout is inspired by my days as a Gamecock Cheerleader.  We'd run, lunge, and work our entire bodies utilizing USC's Williams Brice Stadium.  Stay tuned, this Lithed-up, Philly-born workout will appear on the schedules next week!
