The Truth about HEALTH

I hate to break it to you sister – but living an active and healthy lifestyle doesn’t always equate to looking like a model. 

Every body is so different, and health really does look different on everyone.

At my tiniest I was dealing with constant fatigue, low blood pressure, and panic attacks. 
At my heaviest I was neglecting my health and fitness in favor of “body positivity”, I was sluggish, and even more insecure in my skin than ever before.
Then I found balance.

I workout 5 days a week, eat healthy 80 percent of the time and most certainly do not look like a model.
But I’m happy, I’m healthy and most importantly my MINDSET is in such a better place.

Workout to energize your body.
Eat well to nourish your body and thrive.
Find balance and stop comparing. Take care of you on the inside and I PROMISE you’ll glow on the outside – size two or not 😘

Transformation!!!

Some of the best transformations… don’t happen on the outside 

insecure → confident
unhealthy → thriving
settling → massive goals
lonely → community
hiding → sharing
follower → leader
stressed out and anxious → a little less anxious 😉

Thank goodness I said yes to my coaching journey. Amazing how one scary decision has the potential to change your entire life. Do the things that scare you. There is a reason they do. 💛

Embrace the Journey

I used to spend hours on the elliptical and not lose a pound.
I used to eat the “perfect diet” and always fall off track.
.
I had this great vision for where I wanted to be, and knew exactly what I needed to do… I could just never seem to get there.🤔
.
What was I missing?!
.
I hated the JOURNEY. I had the HUGE end goal in mind and just wanted to hurry up and get there, so I followed the drastic steps that I hated in hopes of getting there.
.
That right there.
.
That was the problem. If you don’t enjoy the journey… the in-between… the steps you take to get there. You will NEVER see it through.
.
The scale would go up. I’d get frustrated. I’d give up.
I’d eat a cookie. I was a horrible person. I’d eat ten more. 🍪
.
Then I learned the power of making the journey fun. I figured out which workouts I enjoyed the most. Which styles of eating would keep me full and happy. 🍓
.
It wasn’t as fast. It wasn’t as drastic. It wasn’t perfect.
.
But it was long term. It was sustainable. I actually saw RESULTS. So I kept going. Because guess what, that “PERFECT plan” for you is the one that you’ll actually follow. It’s not about perfect. It’s about consistency. And enjoying the way there.
.
And quite honestly if you don’t LOVE the journey – you’ll never maintain the results. 👊

What you see vs. me…

True Story: I almost didn’t post this picture last week.
.
Then I had to laugh at myself as I read some of the comments… not once did someone mention the ONE thing that was glaringly obvious to me.
.
Know what it is was?! 🤔
The little extra chunk and cellulite on my legs.
.
I wanted to share this to prove a point. We are in fact our own worst critics. The things you notice on yourself, pull apart, that seem sooooo obvious to you… are often times invisible to others.
.
Stop being your own worst critic and start trying to see yourself through the eyes of others.💕
.
Sure you may never match the “perfect” photoshopped images you see on social media, but you are YOU and that is something you should be so PROUD of. Own it. Little extra on the thighs and all. 😘

EXPAND

What you focus on expands…

 I have a hard time losing weight
 I need to stop eating at night
 I struggle with emotional eating 
 I do well all day and screw it up at night
 I can’t seem to stick to a diet
 I don’t like vegetables

I hear one of the above almost daily and to be honest I’ve said them all at some point too but here’s what I’m learning…

When we spend our time focusing on the negative, even if we’re working on changing it, it will continue to show up.

Focus on the positive. 🤗
Have gratitude on what’s already happening.💕
Have faith in the possibilities of what’s to come. 🙏

Struggle with the above?! Next time those thoughts come up shift em…
