I am NOT Enough

I received a message yesterday from a girl who was starting a college nutrition program. She was WORRIED that she wouldn’t be a good nutritionist because she didn’t LOOK the part. 
And trust me, that FEAR held me back for SO LONG.
.
I put off personal training because I didn’t think I looked FIT enough. 💪
I quit dance because I wasn’t THIN enough. 💃
I was terrified to promote my nutrition coaching with the FEAR that no one would want to look like me. 
And I’ll never forget the STING of overhearing someone say… “she has a degree in nutrition and doesn’t look like it.” (definitely cried after that one).
.
But then something AMAZING happened when I actually started coaching…. My own nutrition, body image, and weight started to fall into place. 💕
.
As I continued, I learned just how VALUABLE it was to be able to RELATE to people. To have the power to share my OWN struggles… and admit that yes, I too was still on my journey.
.
So NOW when people tell me they can’t be a coach because they don’t look the part, don’t know enough about nutrition or fitness, or aren’t finished on their OWN journey yet, I just smile…
.
Because I know that once they GET IT and start their coaching journey their LIFE is about to CHANGE

Wanna change yours?! 👯

What to do when times get TOUGH

Wanna know a secret?!
Those times when you really don’t FEEL like getting in a workout.💪
Think it’s not CONVENIENT to eat healthy. 🍓
Are too BUSY to meal prep. 🍳
Can’t AFFORD to start something new. 🤑
.
Those are usually the times when you probably need it MOST. 💕
.
We hear it all the time but the better you take care of YOU, the better you can take care of everyone else.
.
You’ll show up happier.
Have more energy.
FEEL more positive.
Relieve some stress.
.
And tackle those tough times just a little EASIER.
So, I’d say it’s worth it… Wouldn’t you?! 🙌
