What’s holding YOU back from becoming the BEST version (both physically and mentally) of YOURSELF?!

One of my clients recently graduated from working together, and talk about obstacles to weight loss… She didn’t even have a KITCHEN to use for a few months during our time together. Not to mention she moved 3-4 different times while working together… Talk about stressful!

Seriously, she was in the military and lived on various bases so was often eating at the dining hall. She was at the expense of food choices that were provided to her, and she STILL managed to lose 14 pounds and 21 inches while working together!

The BEST result she achieved was her CONFIDENCE!

Before working together, she was uncomfortable in her own skin, and hated every piece of clothing she owned. She always enjoyed exercising, but felt tired and sluggish in the gym with the extra weight she had gained.

After working together, she became HAPPIER, and that’s NOT because she lost weight… It’s because she felt like HERSELF again! She gained the confidence and energy that she had been missing for years!

This could be YOU in 90 days.

If she was able to get these results WITHOUT access to a kitchen and while moving across the country 3 times, ask yourself… What’s really stopping YOU?

On a scale from 1-10, how CONFIDENT and RADIANT do you FEEL in your life right now?

If it’s anything less than a 10, you’re selling yourself short. You deserve MORE.

You see, almost every woman I work with comes to me because they want to simply “lose weight.” While using the scale is a great tool to measure progress, it surprises me that so few women understand how creating a healthier life will make them FEEL!

How would you FEEL if you slept 7-9 hours a night? ⁣

How would you FEEL if you fueled your body with the nutrients it craves?⁣

How would you FEEL if you consciously chose to ate dessert simply because you WANTED it, without any strings attached or without using it as a comfort for stress or emotions? ⁣

So... how do you bump your confidence up to a level 10?

You remember that you always have a CHOICE, and that is your POWER. Decide to take action. ⁣

If you’re not happy with how you FEEL, how can you change your daily actions (which directly changes your feelings)?

Here's a fun fact...

Here’s a fun fact: Sometimes sh*t doesn’t go the way we want it to. ⁣

This picture was take last August on the morning of the @crim_events 10-Mile race. After warming up and preparing myself to run, I lined up at the start line only to discover the race was delayed because of thunderstorms.⁣

I sat in this chair for over 2 HOURS waiting for the storm to pass. At first I was super annoyed and frustrated. I was READY to run. I could’ve wasted time complaining, or by playing candy crush on my phone, or by saying SCREW IT and heading home like so many other runners did, but instead, I decided to make my time productive. I used that time to check in with my clients and to plan my clients’ habits for the upcoming week.⁣

After the storms, I was nervous to run after sitting still for so long, but I felt GOOD knowing I had used my time productively. And guess what happened? I ran my FASTEST 10-miles to date. ⁣

Life is always going you a curve ball. You can’t escape that. But you are 100% in control of YOUR ATTITUDE and HOW you react to stressful situations. ⁣

I couldn’t control the weather on race day, but I COULD control my attitude and my behaviors. I made the best out of a situation that was annoying and frustrating, and I think my race results proved that! ⁣ I challenge you to DECIDE to make the most of a bad situation - you’ll be glad you did!

What do you *TELL* yourself about your body?

As a nutrition & exercise coach, I’m bummed that most women don’t talk about mindset more when it comes to our BODIES!

You’re probably aware that your mind BELIEVES what you tell it... Regardless of whether it's the truth or not.  Yep, you read that correctly... Your mind often believes what you tell it, even if it's different than reality.

Ask yourself this question: What do you *TELL* yourself about your body?

If you're mind is always full of negative or criticizing thoughts, it will feel impossible to have a healthy & peaceful relationship with food, exercise, and your body.

Instead of focusing on the negative self-talk, celebrate every step of your journey… And start giving yourself (and your body) some credit!

There's absolutely NOTHING wrong with wanting to improve your health while transforming your body... 

Heck—my ENTIRE business is based on helping women create the healthy body of their dreams. ;)

But remember that BELIEVING you can achieve your goals and TELLING yourself how strong and beautiful you are (no matter what the damn number on the scale says) is the key to being successful.

You may be wondering… How do you *start* shifting your mindset so that you can actually start loving your body??

My favorite way is to write a body positive affirmation (like I AM BEAUTIFUL or MY BODY IS STRONG) on a sticky note, and place it on your desk or your bathroom mirror. EVERY time you see the sticky note, say the affirmation to yourself.
