Total-Body Benefits of the Tiny Waist & Calorie Crusher Workout
Building a Healthy Relationship with Yourself : A healthy self-relationship is the ability to value yourself as a person, embrace your strengths and weaknesses. The most important relationship that you have and the relationship you should always be working on is the one you have with yourself. Talking to yourself and having those inner conversations about food, exercise and positive relationships all contribute to having a healthy mind and body.
A healthy relationship with yourself is multi-layered, complicated and consists of many parts, just like any relationship with anyone. As with any relationship there are important ingredients to cultivating a loving, compassionate partnership and that is with yourself too! A healthy relationship with ourselves includes having a connected relationship with our bodies. Self-care is about looking after yourself and your mental health. The relationship you have with yourself is crucial to your own wellbeing and also to creating healthy and happy relationships with others. Being kind to yourself regularly is one of the best things you can do for yourself. Being a great friend to yourself unlocks long-term happiness. Your relationship with yourself is arguably the most important relationship in life. Self-relationship is the foundation of everything and relationships with others shape the relationship with yourself.
The way you are when you talk to yourself is so important and to avoid negative thoughts and feelings is crucial!
What does it mean to be one with yourself?
You're comfortable with who you are, flaws and all. Many people believe that oneness has to do with being right where you want to be and that is not exactly true. You can be one with yourself and still working to grow to be the best version of you that you can be.
Ways to create a healthy relationship with yourself
- Recognize negative self-talk. Everyone has a voice inside their head that guides their decisions.
- Get to know yourself
- Practice gratitude for your physical self
- Show compassion
- Stop judging others
- Spend some time alone
Why the most important relationship is with yourself?
The relationship you have with yourself is critical because it is the foundation for all your other relationships in life. The stronger your relationship with yourself, the stronger your other relationships can be. Like other relationships, your relationship with yourself is all about trust.
Remember! A healthy relationship with ourselves is an ongoing process, just like any relationship. Always avoid talking or thinking negatively about yourself. Tell Yourself...

Tiny Waist Calorie & Crusher Workout! What are we doing in today's workout?!
Sit ups with Press : You will need one weight or a water bottle. Lie on your back and breathe through this exercise with every single rep! Keep your knees bent, feet apart and press up with your arms holding the weight and sit up! Come all the way down again, keeping your core nice and tight and sit up strong! Keep your belly button in tight and do this 3 times. Push the weight up nice and strong and come into a sit up position. Keep your shoulders steady.
This exercise really helps your muscles work. It uses your body weight to strengthen and tone the core-stabilizing abdominal muscles. Sit ups really can promote good posture by working your lower back and glute muscles.
Bent Leg V -Up with Toe Reach x 3 : This time you will need 2 weights and stay in the same position to start. Bring the weights out to the side of your body and keep your palms facing down to the ground. Bring your knees and feet together and keep your legs off the ground. Come up and extend your legs out straight. Shoot your legs and arms out, strong and in front of you. Build the momentum to keep on building your muscle tone and keep that discipline! Keep the weights close to your body as you lie on your back. Hold your legs at the top and release. Inhale through your nose and exhale everything out.
Bear Stance Push Ups to Plank x 3 : Turn over onto your front and into a High Plank position. With 2 weights in your hand walk out with your hands and move into that high plank position. Bring your arms back to the middle and bend your knees into a narrow push up. Bring weights in, your knees down and then walk your body back out into that high plank position and repeat! Squeeze your elbows in tight as you come into the bent position again. Squeeze your core tight and keep on going. Keep your body moving!
High Plank Knee Across : Come into a High Plank position, bring one knee in at a time and move it across your body. You can also use your weights in your hands if you want to! Hold your strength and core nice and tight, shake out those arms but really work on Crushing your Core! Keep taking your knee across your body. Stay strong and controlled, squeeze your waist and remember to give your core an extra blast!
The muscles used in this exercise are not only the abdominals but also the obliques and the hip flexors. The abdominals provide movement and support to your core and your back and the obliques are responsible for side bending and waist twisting, which helps to provide stability to the hips and lower back.
Keep saying - I Can ! I Can ! I Can!
