Self Worth

My stomach isn’t flat enough.
My shoulders are too broad.
My teeth aren’t white enough.
My thighs are too thick.
My chest is too flat. 

Raise your hand if you’ve ever thought any of the following 🙋

I know I have… way too many times.

Thing is, most everyone battles some sort of body image discomfort.

Whether it’s a personal flaw we pull apart, or a “perfect” image we compare ourselves to on social media, it can be so easy to dwell on all the ways we aren’t “enough.”

But, when we stop comparing, when we start realizing that every body is different, that no body is perfect…

That’s where your world can change.

There is no one size all definition of beauty. And I’d like to argue that true beauty is reflected in self love. In confidence. In an inner glow. 

Self worth and self love are vital for your happiness. Always remember that. 💛

➡️ How to break through a plateau. ⬅️

After sharing my post about the scale recently, I started to get a lot of questions about weight loss plateaus and feeling ‘stuck’ so I wanted to share exactly what I would do if this were to come up.

Step One: Find out if you are really at a plateau. Are your measurements changing? Are you taking progress pictures? Do you visually see change? Are your clothes fitting differently? These are all indicators of progress, even if the scale may not be reflecting change. However, if everything is stagnant, move on to step two.

Step Two: Dial in on what you’re doing. Have you been tracking your nutrition? Are small bites here and there sneaking in? Are you not as consistent with your workouts? Do you fall off track on the weekends. Tighten everything up and see if that makes a difference. Here’s an example… I haven’t been measuring my sweet potatoes or almond milk creamer. Not a huge deal, but my first step will be to track those more closely.

Step Three: Change ONE thing at a time. If you are in fact sticking to your plan 100% and not seeing change it’s time to switch things up, but it’s best to do it slowly, and one piece at a time. This is when a coach will come in handy to decide if you need to either increase or decrease intake and by how much.

Step Four: Be PATIENT. Change will take time so slow down and trust the process. Once you’ve made one change, give it a week or two to see if it’s working. If it is, awesome, if not, go back to step one and start from the top.

The Key to Motivation

Wanna know my secret to staying on my fitness journey?! 🦄

I have other people counting on me.

I’ve always struggled fighting for myself, but if there is one thing I’m REALLY good at it’s showing up for other people. 

While chatting with a client today who’s been struggling to commit to a fitness routine, I realized just how KEY that piece of accountability is.

We made a game plan where she would meet her friend for their workout 3 times a week to get started (because baby steps are important).

Now she’ll be showing up not just for herself, but because she knows someone is counting on her.

And quite honestly, that’s been my magic trick to holding myself accountable on the days when I DON’T feel like working out or eating right.

–> I know I have a team of ladies who are counting on me.
–> I know I have to share a check in and my life on social media.
–> I know in order to set an example for others I have to follow through too.

And it’s never about being perfect, but it is about showing up and making an effort. It’s about PROGRESS.

Did you show up today?! 🙋

Need a little extra accountability? Want the ultimate accountability by becoming a coach? Always here and you can do it too 😘

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 😘

The Power of Self Love

Where has hating your body gotten you?

Yes you?

Hating yourself will never serve you. 

I spent years hoping if I hated my body enough I would just do something about it. But nothing changed.

Crash diets. Hours on the treadmill. Not going out because I had nothing to wear {with a closet full of clothes}.
I continued to hate. Pull apart. Avoid mirrors. Pinch my fat.
And nothing changed.

So I decided to try a different approach {and trust me, it’s still very much a work in progress}.

I started loving what I have.
Appreciating my body for the things it could do instead of tearing apart the way it looked.
Going out even when I didn’t feel like it.
Fueling my body well and not “judging” my food choices.
Moving my body in a way that was fun.

And no my body didn’t change very drastically, but something much more important did…my mindset.

Hating yourself will not serve you anymore. Loving yourself will. 💛
