I am back speaking with the fabulous Judith Gaton. We had a conversation just under a year ago all about giving yourself a post-pandemic makeover, so we’re back for a part two because there was a bunch of stuff we didn’t manage to cover in that episode, and we’re getting deep into all of that today.
In case you don’t remember, Judith Gaton is a style and life coach for curvy women, and she teaches them how to dress and love the body they’re in right now, no diets or Spanx required. If you currently think you can’t rock a small, comfortable outfit on your run because of what other people might think about you, or your outfits are interfering with your life and running performance, you’re in the right place.
Tune in this week to discover why it’s 100% up to you what you wear when you’re running. We’re discussing how to feel comfortable showing as much or as little skin or spandex as you want to, and how to handle situations where you experience judgment from other people.
What You’ll Learn From This Episode:
- How my clients tend to react when I suggest they wear a tank top or a sports bra while running on a hot day.
- Where the programming comes from that makes us want to hide our arms, our legs, or anything else (modesty and religion aside).
- Why we need to stop prioritizing the imaginary opinions of people we don’t know over our own comfort.
- What you’re really saying when you use the words, “Nobody needs to see that,” about your own body.
- How to handle those situations where somebody does express an opinion about your body.
- Why you have the right to do whatever you want with your body and take up as much space as you want, while running or doing anything else.
- How to allow yourself to at least test the water and try wearing whatever feels comfortable for you on your next run.
