Bedtime Affirmations

Lately my anxiety has been in full swing… so when I came across these yesterday I just knew I had to share. 

10 Bedtime Affirmations 😴

It’s so amazing how changing your thoughts can change your life. Give them a try… 

1. I am calm and peaceful
2. I’ve done my best today
3. I’m proud of myself
4. I’m grateful for this day’s opportunities
5. My heart is grateful
6. I’m happy with my accomplishments
7. I’m safe
8. I’m filled with content
9. Everything I did today leads to a better tomorrow
10. Tomorrow is a new day full of possibilities 💛


Self Love is the KEY

The most important person to fall in love with is YOU. 💕
This is especially IMPORTANT if you are trying to grow, change, or improve.
I always used to believe that if I HATED myself and my body enough, I would build up the motivation to CHANGE it. 
What usually happened instead was I would end up feeling worse about myself, discouraged, and uninspired. I was putting NEGATIVITY into my mindset, and positive changes happened few and far between.
But then I realized I needed to switch my approach. We need to show ourselves compassion, self-acceptance, and self LOVE in order to INSPIRE positive CHANGE.
When I started to practice this on the regular, the POSITIVE change happened with ease. I started to fuel my body to take care of myself, workout because I loved my body, and accept the things I just couldn’t change (hello short legs!).
Bottom line: Focus on the things you LOVE about yourself, be patient, and stop dwelling on the things you can’t change. There are plenty of people out there to criticize you. Be the one to show YOU some love 💛



Find your STRENGTH

To all the women out there hating their legs….please stop.
Your legs carry you through life.
They allow you to run, jump, even just walk.
I always used to HATE my legs. Too muscular. No thigh gap. Just heavy. Since then I’ve grown to see them differently.
They are my strength. 
They are my movement.
They are there when I fall (and I do A LOT)
Never be ashamed of your strength, your imperfections. It’s OK to show up to the world in a very BIG way. Stop playing small, pretty, and perfect. 💕


Consistency is KEY

What you do consistently over time > what you do or don’t do one day.

Full Disclosure. I LOVE to workout. I crave that post workout high. Love nothing more than being in an empty gym, and genuinely look forward to my workouts every day.

Having that love of fitness has been AMAZING but that doesn’t mean I don’t have my fair share of struggles too. 💕
I HATE vegetables.
I STRUGGLE with emotional eating. 🍿
I get HUNGRY often.
I would rather SNACK than eat whole full meals.
I have the world’s biggest SWEET tooth. 🍫
Nutrition has always been a struggle point for me, and is something I will forever be a work in progress on.
So how do I tackle it?! I recognize that nobody is perfect and focus on the fact that what I do consistently over time, will always outweigh what I do or don’t do in one day. So I balance it.
I stick to my consistent daily workouts that I love.
I try to make the BEST nutrition choices I can each day. 🍓
I set myself up for success by planning and prepping my meals. 🍴
And I also cut myself some slack and don’t beat myself up when I have an off day, eat a cookie, or find myself munching out of stress. I just do the BEST I possibly can. 🍪

Remember: What you do consistently over time > what you do or don’t do one day.

Which do you struggle with more FITNESS or NUTRITION?



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?! 👯
