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.

CrossFit and Beachbody?!?!?!

Crossfit and At Home Workouts. What the heck do the two have in common?

In fact: a whole lot.
When I first started coaching, I felt like I had to hide the fact that I did CrossFit, but here’s something I discovered.

CrossFit was a game changer for me on my fitness journey.
I found my strength.
I found a community.
I found a love of fitness.

So many people are too intimidated to step into a crossfit.
So many people can’t afford a monthly membership.
So many people don’t feel “fit enough” to start.

Enter: At Home Programs.
Thanks to coaching, I am able to give my clients the exact same feeling I discovered years ago.
They get the best community.
They find their strength.
They learn to love fitness.

All from the comfort of their own home.
So whether it’s CrossFit, Shaun T, or 80 Day Obsession, I want to help you find what works for you. No discriminating here.

Find what you love.
Move your body.
Build the best community.
It’s just about taking the first step. Always here to help.

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 😘

How to take ACTION

I can be REALLY hard on myself.
But who isn’t right?!
.
Recently I was in a mini workout slump and not feeling quite as fit as I was 6 months ago.

Instead of pushing past that slump I started to notice myself skipping out on workouts for fear of not being good “enough”.
Then I realized I was doing exactly what I tell my soon to be clients not to do.
.
I was letting my fear of not being ENOUGH paralyze me into not doing ANYTHING. No good. 🙅
.
So instead I decided to losen up the expectations a bit.
.
I stopped trying to surpass anyone. Stopped tracking my workouts. Stopped trying to beat old records, or destroy myself with my workouts.
If I moved for 20 minutes it was a good day. ✌️
.
And guess what… just by taking action I have improved.
I’m back to being super consistent and am actually enjoying my workouts again.
.
Lesson learned.
.
Take off the pressure to be perfect and you can get a lot accomplished.
.
Just start. 
.
Did you get your workout in today?!
