When You Alkalign 3 Times Per Week….

by | Mar 9, 2022

Here’s what happens when you Alkalign 3x per week. It’s kind of like If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, but even better. 😉

When you Alkalign three times a week, you establish consistency.

When you establish consistency, you start seeing results. When you start seeing results, you are inspired to continue. When you continue, you start to form a habit. When you form a habit, the burden or barrier of fitting Alkalign into your life is lessened and it becomes a part of your routine. When it becomes part of your routine, you start to appreciate how much better you feel with a gentle and consistent movement practice. When you embrace a gentle and consistent movement practice, you feel better, mentally and physically. When you feel better, both mentally and physically, you sleep better, think better, eat better and feel better because you are in the good circle, or what some refer to as an upward spiral. During an upward spiral, good things happen and they beget more good things. And when you complete anything, no matter how small, you feel accomplished and successful. And when you feel accomplished and successful, you are inspired to continue. 

And when you continue….

At Alkalign we believe in starting slowly and with a reasonable goal. Establish consistency first, and then build from there. 

It is very common that people are unable to stick with workouts because they set unreasonable goals (think: the balls to the walls challenges or the “no days off” mentality). When you set unreasonable goals, you are unable to sustain them because the body is wired to avoid pain and discomfort. When you are unable to sustain them, you feel like a failure. When you feel like a failure, you enter a shame spiral, sometimes known as a downward spiral. When you downward spiral, the inner critic takes over and makes you feel badly about everything. When you feel badly about everything, your defense mechanism is to start making excuses (I can’t do that, I don’t have time for that) and it’s really hard to pull yourself out of it and do anything. The only way out is through, and the first step is small. 

Step 1: Sign up 

Step 2: Show up 

Step 3: Celebrate yourself. 

More is not more. It doesn’t have to hurt to work. And you don’t have to workout 7 days a week or look like Gaston or Gisele to be a fit and healthy person. In fact most of those beliefs and the following behaviors are working against you, both in terms of accelerated wear and tear to your body and to your self-worth. Start small vs not at all. Set a reasonable goal (2x a week) and allow that to be enough because you are enough.

Hi! I’m Erin and my passion in life is helping others feel better by helping them get out of their own head. So much of our relationship to food and fitness is a reflection of deeply rooted beliefs that were imprinted on us at a very early age. These beliefs drive all sorts of behaviors, many of which are not good for our physical or mental health. I know this first-hand. As a former calorie-counting cardio queen I played right into all the toxic messages about what it meant to be “healthy”. That all changed when I hit rock bottom. Since leaving my corporate career in 2009 I have been fully committed to shifting the narrative and helping people experience better physical health by unpacking unhealthy beliefs. My biggest inspiration are my two young daughters, who I hope to raise in a household that openly illuminates and addresses the misinformation instead of adopting it.
