When I started my nutrition journey I was CLUELESS where to start.
I tried everything….
🙋 Weight Watchers
🙋 Counting Macros
🙋 Low Carb
🙋 Counting Calories
Nothing seemed to work and quite honestly I had no idea what info to believe.
So I did my own research.
Implemented basic nutrition principles.
Figured out what worked for my INDIVIDUAL body.
GAME Changer 🙌
Which is why I’m so excited to announce that I’ve partnered with a Registered Dietician to offer nutrition exclusive coaching.
No counting macros, no foods off limits, and exercise is extra credit. Learn to cope with emotional eating, nighttime eating, and figure out what works just for YOU!

I used to be so AFRAID to talk about what I did for work.
It started when I graduated college and didn’t have your average ‘9-5’ job.
When someone asked me what I did I would cringe…
“Do I list out the 10 part time jobs and certifications I have?!”
So when I went back to school for nutrition I was so EXCITED to have a normal job.
Then I tried searching for a job.
So I kept waitressing. Tried my best to start my own business. Took all the courses. Spent all the money. Had a blog. Tried to navigate running a business with zero business background… FAIL.
Right when I was about to give up, I learned about coaching… just another thing I would fail at I assumed.
And when I started I was so EMBARRASSED to talk about what I was doing.
I didn’t want people to think I was a salesperson.
I didn’t want to ‘bug’ people.
But I kept showing up. I kept growing my confidence. Building my self-esteem.
Slowly, and with a LOT of hustle, I built my coaching business into my full time job.
At that point I realized something HUGE… you can’t pay your bills with other people’s opinions.
No I don’t have a ‘normal job’.
I don’t have a fancy title.
But I LOVE what I do. I get to work from home in yoga pants. On my own clock. Wherever I choose (there must be wi-fi 😉) And now I’ve learned how PROUD I can be of the fact that I’ve built my coaching business from the ground up.
That I get to help people for a living.
And am happy to say I actually look forward to getting to work every day.
So yes I am an online health and fitness coach. Wanna do it too?!
Say something nice about yourself ⬇️
I am ______________.
There’s power in your I am…
whatever you say will follow.
This saying hit me hard this week. After a not so great week, I was starting to doubt myself, my decisions, and even my ability to tackle my to-do list.
Then I started paying attention to what was playing over and over in my head.
“I am stressed”
“I am anxious”
And sure enough, what I put out there came to me. So I decided to try something different. I started focusing on the positives and even though I was an anxious stress case kept repeating…
“I am calm”
“I am happy”
“I am energized”
And guess what happened?! Anxiety evened out, my workouts felt better, and goals were crushed.
Now I am the LAST person to push the mindset/manifest stuff. I’m the girl who gets stressed in yoga and reviews my to-do list at any attempt to mediate 😂, but I promise it works!! .
Will you give it a try?! What’s your I AM statement going into the new week?
Let’s chat a bit about VOLUME. Both of these options are carbohydrate sources. Both contain sugar. One will leave you a whole lot fuller than the other. 🍓
Why?! Strawberries are a much higher volume food (meaning you can eat more for less calories). They’ll still cure your sweet tooth AND they have fiber and more nutrients than the gummy bears, which are straight up sugar. 🍭
Is either a “bad” option? Absolutely NOT. For example, if you’re really craving gummy bears, a small portion may be enough to fix the craving BUT if you’re genuinely hungry or looking for a more regular option to satisfy your sweet tooth with… go for the strawberries.
Little Tip: Try them frozen! They’ll take longer to eat!!
