Episode Summary:

Amy Connell and I talk about health “rules” we’ve heard but need to be broken for our good! Not all health rules are healthy. Amy is a personal trainer on a mission to help women realize that their eating and the way they move their body doesn’t have to be perfect. Your body is worthy of being taken care of! The reason we take care of our body is so we can do what we are called by God to do.

Amy also shares how to reduce stress with exercise: How Does Exercise Reduce Stress?

Quotables from the Episode:

  • Am I taking care of my body the way God wants me to?
  • Perfection will enslave us when it comes to taking care of our bodies.
  • There are certain health “rules” we’ve all heard that need to be broken, for our good.
  • Our mindset is our fall back when things don’t go right, so we have to have an appropriate mindset about our health and wellness.
  • I’m taking care of my body so I can do what God calls me to do.
  • When it comes to health and wellness, something is better than nothing.
  • We tend to self-sabotage ourselves with respect to our health and wellness through perfectionism, all or nothing thinking, and trying to do too much at once.
  • The moment we become slave to our to-do list, it becomes detrimental to our well-being.
  • Working towards better health is NOT a waste of time even when we don’t lose weight.
  • Your body is worthy of being taken care of.
  • There is no perfect body!

 

Scripture References:

  • Isaiah 43:19 NIV “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”
  • Galatians 1:10 NIV “Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.”
