Enough is Enough!

Enough excuses of why I wasn’t drinking my water, why I wasn’t following the “simple” eating schedule I had been following, why I wasn’t paying attention to all the BLTs (bites, licks and tastes) I had been “treating” myself to, enough feeling scared about the current situation our world is in!
So, last Tuesday (1 week ago today) I dialed in my nutrition…I started following my healthy habits:

💦Drinking lots of water
💤 sleeping soundly (minus last night 🤪 Note to self: no major caffeine right before bed)
⏰ eating when I should
✅eating what I should

Not only did I say goodbye to 6.2lbs along with reclaiming all of the above habits, but I am also:

🙋🏼‍♀️volunteering to help my honey 😍 with farm jobs that give me opportunities for extra movement (picking rocks 🤦🏼‍♀️)
Even my attitude has improved (reference “volunteering” above 😂)

Friends with Hoshimotos

I wanted to share this hoping that it will bring strength and hope to others who struggle. (I apologize ahead of time for the video quality. 😬)
I think it’s pretty incredible that my two friends, who have struggled most of their life with an auto immune disorder, were free enough to talk about it.

As you hear in the video, our program is the common denominator in how each of them found hope!

If you are struggling and searching for hope…contact me, let’s have a conversation. Stop wishing for an answer and start asking questions.

I coach clients (who I now call “friends”) from all over. You don’t have to live near me, in fact I’ve never physically met some of my “friends”.

This program is about you! You, helping yourself, along with me as your guide and an amazing support system to lean into.

Feel free to contact me, even if you just want to ask questions.

Have an amazing day!

Alert: Vulnerability Post

Over the past few weeks (honestly months) I have just been coasting in my weight loss/health journey.

As you may know, I started my weight loss/health journey January 30th of this year. I met my first goals rather quickly. By the time I had lost 40+ lbs I was very happy and dare I say comfortable in my own skin and clothes…first time in a very long time. I hadn’t seen a size 6-8 since…well I don’t actually remember ever being a size 6-8 (I started at size 16-18). So, I was very content with my body and since my knee issues had also disappeared and my blood pressure was normal I decided to maintain where I was at. I made that decision knowing that I would pick my program back up, in the fall, and reach my final weight goal. I only had another 15lbs to go.

Rewind to the past 4 months…

Along with just maintaining, I started to get lax. Lax in my learning and continuing to use the new healthy habits that had been gifted to me. I started to believe that a I could just start back on plan at any given moment and the weight would come back off (I had gained a few…10+ lbs). What I didn’t realize was that after undoing some of the great new habits I had formed…getting back to program would be like starting over instead of just picking up where I left off. At this point, I really wished I had finished my original goal right away but, one thing I have learned is that there is no point in regretting my past months of poor decisions….It is time to move forward – No looking back!!!!

That brings us to today…

Tomorrow is the day that I have issued myself a challenge! I am starting a Fueling Daily Choices Fat Burn Challenge! But, at this point it is only for me. Why???

I love coaching others, seeing and hearing about all of there successes and insights gives me such joy. I have decided that to be the best coach I can be, I have to be sure that I know what I am talking about. I need to experience this journey again. So I have issued myself this challenge and after I complete 2 weeks I will then start to share it with my clients and future clients.

I will be posting all of my insights, struggles and successes (scale and non-scale) right here on this page.

The catch…Since this is a challenge that I am issuing to myself I won’t be making these posts public for at least two weeks. I will definitely make them public wether I succeed or fail. I’m not hiding anything or any part. I want to see success so that I am confident, once again, that I can share success. If I fail…I refuse to go there, because I WILL NOT FAIL unless I QUIT!

So, if you are seeing this post, it has been at least 2 weeks since I have started this “Challenge” and you are either now joining me or just curious how it went. I say “joining me” because I welcome all of my clients and those who want to be part of our tribe to join in the “challenge” to jump start their New Year and all the possibilities that it holds for them.

Welcome! Please feel free to contact me with any questions, even if you are just curious about my program. I don’t do sales! So, connect with me for information NOT pressure. I would love to hear from you!

Have a wonderful day or night, whichever it is, wherever you are! Never forget…You are AMAZING!

When we receive messages like this we can’t help but be ever so thankful for the honor of walking along with others on their journey towards healthy mind, healthy body, and healthy finances.

Strangers have become dear friends…and that is yet another blessing that being a Transformational Coach has brought into our lives.

We don’t help people “diet” we walk beside them and support them on their own Transformational Journey.

If you would like someone to walk along and support you on your own Transformational Health Journey…let’s talk.

Jumping To Solidify My Why

What a difference when we reduce inflammation…In December/January I was either sitting in a chair, on crutches or hobbling slowly with a very swollen knee.

Since starting this health program my body and mind have changed dramatically.

Yesterday, I was helping load stuff onto the back of the pickup. When done, I hesitated before jumping off of the tailgate (first thought was definitely “No!” I will get hurt). Then I remembered, I and my knees are in better shape now…So, I jumped! I smiled to myself and was doing a mental happy dance, when the young man (maybe late 20’s), still in the pickup box said, “I would have broken my knees if I had jumped off this box!” I said, “I would have too, almost 40lbs ago!” We ended up having a great conversation about inflammation, healthy eating and weight loss.

He is trying to get himself back on a plan (through a different company), that he was previously on, but is struggling to restart. We talked about the mind games that play out in our heads. (*Note: I don’t try to convince people that our program is the only program that works! I support others where they are.) In our conversation I tried to give him some positive support and tips to get started again. I told him that if his current program is working for him, I think that is awesome and I support him! If he doesn’t find that his program is working for him, let me know and we’ll see if we can find one of our programs for him.

He has no idea how good he made me feel and how he solidified my “Why” for becoming a coach…to help and support others where they are in their health journey!

Look for the Stairs

Quote

It is so true… “What we resist persists…”. The original statement by Psychologist Carl Jung is “What you resist not only persists, but will grow in size.”

If you think about it, what we resist are usually things that make us uncomfortable or embarrassed, yet if we would just find a way to tackle those things they would no longer be a roadblock or obstacle in our lives.

My friend, Andrea, recently said, “When you hit the wall of resistance…Look for the stairs!”

For a long time, I resisted sharing my weight loss struggles with anyone and the number on the scale slowly crept higher. It was a part of my life that I felt like a failure in. Once I started to share my journey (which was not easy for me), I found that I was not alone and that there were others that struggled as much or even more than I did. I also realized that this was not something I was failing at, I just had not found the “stairs” that led to the right path for me.

Once I stopped resisting and started sharing, the world opened up to so many new opportunities; one of the most rewarding is being a health coach. I am now able to help others find the “stairs” to their optimal health journey.
