To all the diet failures…

Have you ever felt like a DIET FAILURE? 🙋
.
For YEARS I was constantly on the search for the next great diet.
I would cut out foods.
I would count calories, macros, containers, ALL the things. 
I would OBSESS over my next meal.
I would skip nights out, dinners, or miss out on vacation because of the “diet”.
.
Then, most often, my stomach would grumble. I’d get stressed. The scale wouldn’t budge. I’d be frustrated and I’d end up knee deep in a jar of peanut butter that was “off limits” an hour earlier.
.
I always felt like there was something WRONG with me because I couldn’t stick to the diet. Where was my willpower?!
.
Does any of this sound familiar? 😩

If so I get you and I promise you are not the problem. While most diets in theory will work if you follow them; yes if you follow the grapefruit diet you will lose weight, there’s usually two main problems.
.
1️⃣ They are unrealistic for the long term (i.e. you’re going to get hungry, eat a carb, enjoy dinner out at some point). What you’re following needs to be sustainable for life AKA you don’t gain all the weight back.
AND
2️⃣ They don’t address one of the MAJOR components holding people back from weight loss – MINDSET. Like it or not the majority of people fail on their diet because of their MINDSET and not the diet itself.
.
So instead of getting derailed by shiny objects, wraps, and skinny teas, focus on making a lifestyle change. Figure out what works for YOU as an individual, and stick with it, change your mindset – change your life. ✌️💕

P.S. If this is you definitely check out my newest nutrition offering here! I am so excited about it!

I have to work out today….
Correction: I GET TO workout today. 💖

I talk to so many ladies who say they just can’t find the motivation to workout. One thing I’ve found though is practicing GRATITUDE in any situation can almost always be a solution.

What if you stopped looking at fitness as a chore?
Instead saw it as a privilege.
Something AMAZING your body is capable of doing each and every day. 

Today you get to workout. You get to increase endorphins, feel more positive, improve your health, and move your body in a way that not everyone is capable of.

Will you take advantage of that?! 💪

Gratitude

FREEDOM. 🙌
When I started coaching I 110% doubted that I would be successful. I was shy, insecure, and quite honestly not in a great place with my own health and fitness.
.
But there was something in my HEART that kept me working towards my goals💕
I did ALL the trainings.
Watched ALL the videos.
Worked my booty off.
Guess what happened?! Yesterday while cleaning out my inbox something caught my eye. It was my “vision” I had written from a coach training group.
Back then, I remember feeling CRAZY writing it and secretly thinking it would never happen.
.
TODAY I read it in disbelief as I have checked off goal after goal on my list. 
.
I get to write this post from North Carolina. Yup, you read that right, I was able to up and MOVE for a month to explore a new area.
I can still get my work done.
Sophie’s still with me.🐶
And you better believe I already found a gym. 🤸‍♀️
.
Because that’s what freedom is for me. It’s not having the fanciest car. Being a million dollar earner. Or living the most glamorous life.
It’s simple things. Freedom of time. Freedom of place. Teaching women to love their bodies. And getting paid for it.
.
Plus, I get to help other women do the same, and most have become some of my closest friends. Feeling extra GRATEFUL today and just wanted to share. If you ever wonder what it is I do or how you can do it too, just ask! I’m always just a message away. You deserve this too. 👯

What to do when you’re not motivated.

Confession: lately I’ve been struggling with some serious LACK of motivation with my workouts. This is typically never an issue for me BUT no one is motivated 100% of the time, and it’s been more of a struggle for me lately.
.
Does that mean I’m skipping my workouts?! Absolutely NOT.

Here’s what’s been working for me:
I’ve been scheduling my workouts like appointments. Legit, writing them into my planner. I treat them like I would a doctor’s appointment. I can’t cancel, can’t move things around, I have to show up.
I tell myself to get through ten minutes and if I’m not feeling it, I can stop. Most often the hardest part is getting STARTED and once I am moving I am just fine.
I constantly REMIND myself that I will feel 10X better AFTER I workout. No matter how tired, anxious, or busy I am, I will never REGRET getting it done.
.
Lastly, I cut myself some slack. I know I’m not perfect and if I miss a workout here or there, it’s not the end of the world, or the start of a new diet. I simply learn from it, and make sure I don’t miss another day. 💕

Do you struggle with motivation to workout? What helps you stay on track? mot💪
