I grew up in a fairly religious household, and while I don’t practice many of the religious traditions I grew up with, I always found the idea of confession interesting.
On the one hand, I felt terrified confessing my sins to someone many decades older than me (I’d love to remember the “terrible” sins that 9 year-old Bennett confessed to, I simply don’t remember them)!
But on the other hand, it always felt rejuvenating.
Confession released my mind of anything that had been weighing me down. I always felt physically lighter, and able to focus on more important tasks without dwelling on the mistakes I’d made.
In creating this page I’ve attempted to combine the benefits of confession (the feeling of being released and the ability to move forward with your life) without the terrifying aspects of confession (the shame and guilt that come with having to publicly disclose your mistakes to someone you respect).
In short, this space is for you, not me.
So here’s how the Anonymous Health & Fitness Confessional is going to work.
Let’s say you…
- …jumped off the wagon for a reward meal, only to see the wagon leave you in the dust.
- …chose the regular beer when a gluten-free beer was available.
- …committed to exercising 3x a week and didn’t even go once.
And maybe you’re sitting around, beating yourself up. Wishing that you’d made different choices in the past, knowing that the past is gone and can’t be changed, but somehow letting it drag you down nonetheless.
I suggest you load up this page – takeyourbodybacknow.com/confessional – confess your health and fitness “sins,” and what you’re going to do differently starting TODAY.
The twist is, you’re not confessing them to anyone but yourself, no one will know you’re the one who posted something on this page (not even me).
