FUEL your bodies healthfully

It’s so important to remember where you came from to appreciate where you’re going…
.
9 years ago, I was a dance major STARVING my body, depleting it with cardio, and felt unworthy of being ANYTHING other than a size double zero.
.
5 years ago, I was HAUNTED by food. I tried desperately to lose weight as I continued to battle an eating disorder. I was lost about what I wanted to do in my life, and spent most days counting calories, and planning my next diet. 
.
3 years ago, I suffered from an extreme LACK of self-confidence and body HATRED after “recovering” and gaining back all of the weight I had so unhealthily kept off for years.
.
Now
I have learned the value of FUELING my body.
I no longer DIET.
I ENJOY a life I never thought I would.
I wear a bathing suit MINUS the panic attack.
I workout because I LOVE my body, not to torture it.
.
Eating disorders, anxiety, body dysmorphia, you name it, I struggled with it. We’re all given our own battles and struggles to fight, and this was mine. BUT it was not without a LESSON.
.
I’ve made it my personal mission to help other women find beauty in their own strength, FUEL their bodies healthfully, and learn to LOVE fitness. And to me the fact that I get to do that EVERY SINGLE DAY for a living is EVERYTHING!!!

Banana Protein Slices

One of my favorite snacks!! Thanks TalesofaKitchen for this awesome idea :)

First, slice a banana in half and top with almond butter or peanut butter.

Second, drizzle with honey.

Third, sprinkle with crushed walnuts, flax seeds, dried berries, and sliced almonds.

Enjoy as a filling snack!

(the healthy fats from the nuts will hold you over longer and slow down breakdown of the banana)

Monday Motivation

For such a long time I put off coaching simply because I didn’t BELIEVE I could do it.
I didn’t have a 6 pack.
I didn’t know enough people.
I didn’t feel COMFORTABLE posting to social media.
I’m just not the type of person who was ever really SUCCESSFUL.
Then one day I realized something… every single person starts at ground ZERO. If I was going to do this, I had to start somewhere.
.
And no I didn’t grow a 6 pack overnight.
I didn’t meet 10,000 people in one day.
I still was a nervous wreck about posting to social media.
But instead I DECIDED that I was going to believe in myself and BELIEVE that I could be SUCCESSFUL.
I am not a special snowflake.
I am not extra talented.
I just work really hard and BELIEVE I am capable of pulling this off… so I am 😉
Wanna join me?!

“Most people miss opportunity because it is usually dressed up in overalls and looks like work”
.
I think ALL of us are guilty of looking for a “quick fix” at some point. Whether it’s a miracle wrap for weight loss, a get rich quick scheme, or a magic wrinkle cream.
.
These options seem way MORE appealing because they’re EASY but the easy option usually won’t lead to much SUCCESS. The options that do tend to work take time, CONSISTENCY, effort, and usually lots of hard work.
.
Hard work will ALWAYS outweigh talent and success takes SACRIFICE…Just keep grinding, never miss an opportunity for fear of a little hard work
