Let’s chat a bit about VOLUME. Both of these options are carbohydrate sources. Both contain sugar. One will leave you a whole lot fuller than the other. 🍓
Why?! Strawberries are a much higher volume food (meaning you can eat more for less calories). They’ll still cure your sweet tooth AND they have fiber and more nutrients than the gummy bears, which are straight up sugar. 🍭
Is either a “bad” option? Absolutely NOT. For example, if you’re really craving gummy bears, a small portion may be enough to fix the craving BUT if you’re genuinely hungry or looking for a more regular option to satisfy your sweet tooth with… go for the strawberries.
Little Tip: Try them frozen! They’ll take longer to eat!!
Today I got to welcome a bunch of new ladies to my coaching team and it reminded me of exactly how I felt when I started coaching.
✨Kind of lost.
✨Hopeless on my own health & fitness journey.
Never in a million years did I think I would actually be successful with this. Then I learned something…
There were a lot of other ladies out there feeling that exact same way.
Feeling like they were the only ones who struggled with their weight.
The only ones lacking self control with a jar of peanut butter.
The only ones without a “girl gang” of friends.
The only ones completely uncomfortable in their own skin.
My one goal with coaching was never to help people lose weight. It was never to get people super fit with six pack abs. It was not even to educate them about nutrition (even though I love that too).
My number one goal has always been to help women not feel ALONE on their journey and with their struggles. 💕
And now I’m creating a whole community of women who are passionate about doing the same and that is the best feeling in the world. 👯
Trust me, I’ve been there too and I PROMISE you don’t have to go it alone. Just a reminder that you are never ever alone. Always here. 😘
Never miss a MONDAY
I was always the farthest thing from athletic.
I trip over objects that aren’t there.
I fall up stairs.
I quit cross country after one day.
But for whatever reason fitness came into my life at a time I needed it most.
It taught me to be proud of my body for what it could do – instead of stressing over how it looked.
Just a reminder that you don’t have to be strong, or fast, or even know what you’re doing. You just have to move. 🏋️♀️
Who got in their Monday workout today?💪⬇️
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. 👯
