Welcome to the uncomfortable is OK podcast, I’m your host Chris Desmond and today is episode 20. This has come around so quickly! I’m pretty proud of getting this far, and it would never have happened if I hadn’t got a bit uncomfortable and just jumped into this. I want to quickly thank a few people that have made it possible; my lovely wife Julia for being supportive, all the awesome people who have given me feedback and who I’ve bounced ideas off, my gifted brother Jeremy Desmond for the awesome theme music, all the amazing people who have given up their time to share part of their stories with me and you listeners. I want to thank everyone for listening as well from all parts of the world, whether this is your first episode, or you’ve listened to all of them, thanks Mum, it’s cool you’ve chosen to spend a bit of your day with me.
I’ve got a pretty sweet episode lined up for you today. I’m talking with Courtney Durr from Body Love NZ. Health and beauty are so much more than what you see physically, and through Body Love NZ Courtney helps teach women to love themselves to their inner core. Using fitness, practical tools and healthy environments, women start to see their true beauty and potential.
If you want to end up with washboard abs we’re probably not going to help you today. Courtney and I chat about mind-set shifts, changes in perspective, and learning to love who we actually are. We talk about the journey that Courtney went on with her own body image and how she learned to love herself, and how Body Love NZ came into existence. We chat about how easy it is to focus on our own flaws, but that the ideal body is always just a trend. We have a chat about how everything passes, the tough times and the good times. And we chat about spending three weeks in the New Zealand bush in the middle of winter.
Courtney taught me a lot and she is teaching a lot of women important skills. I hope you enjoy getting uncomfortable with us today.
