โฃโฃI get a lot of questions about the fact that I do crossfit and at home workouts. โฃโฃ
Yes Iโ€™m a beachbody coach. โฃโฃ
Yes Iโ€™ve also been wodding at home in my garage. โฃโฃ

It saved my life. โฃโฃ
Transformed my mindset. โฃโฃ
And completely changed the way I viewed my body. โฃโฃ
โฃโฃ
I started doing at home workouts when I was as young as 9 years old as a means to lose weight. โฃโฃ
I had no idea what I was doing and zero confidence to step into a gym. โฃโฃ
When I finally gained a small bit of confidence to go to the gym, I hid in the baggiest sweatshirt I could find and wouldnโ€™t stray from the elliptical. โฃโฃ
Over time, I fell in love with CrossFit and completely shifted myself away from my eating disorder mindset. โฃโฃ
โฃโฃ
My wods are for me. They are my therapy. They are my time to turn off my phone and take care of myself. โฃโฃ
โฃโฃ
My at-home workouts are for my community. They are my connection to my girls. They are my time to learn more about fitness, improve my endurance, and challenge myself with things I may not normally do. โฃโฃ

If thereโ€™s one thing Iโ€™m hearing amongst my clients itโ€™s that food is a struggle and total honesty, itโ€™s something I battle with every day too. โฃ
โฃ
I want to remind you that if youโ€™re okay with eating a little more right now, loosening up on the food rules, and embracing a little weight gain thatโ€™s totally fine too. We all cope differently, you do you. โฃ

1๏ธโƒฃ Planning out my day ahead and factoring in snacks, especially nighttime snacks. I know I forever want to snack at night so instead of fighting it, I embrace it. I make it fit within my daily needs and go into the day with a plan so I know I can make it work. โฃ
โฃ
2๏ธโƒฃ Structure & Timing. Intermittent fasting works for me so I fast in the morning as a way to limit my opportunities to fall off track and stay within my daily goals. Experiment with what works best for you. I also stick to a consistent schedule and structure similar to what I follow when Iโ€™m not staying home. โฃ
โฃ
3๏ธโƒฃPortion Control and Flexible Dieting. If thereโ€™s something Iโ€™m really craving I have it but make it fit within my day, even if itโ€™s not the cleanest or healthiest option. I also look for healthier swaps that actually taste good but fit within my daily portion and calorie goals. โฃ

โฃ
2๏ธโƒฃย ACCOUNTABILITY. This is huge right now. Whether itโ€™s facetiming or zooming during your workout with friends, streaming a live class, or checking in with coach/friend or workout buddy after or before your workout, having a reliable community is going to be key right now. โฃ
โฃ
3๏ธโƒฃย Switch things up. Try to do a variety of workouts and find things you love instead of the same things each day. If youโ€™re more likely to smile your way through Zumba than crushing yourself on a run, do that right now. Itโ€™s all about finding things you love and that feel fun. โฃ
