Hey! I’m glad you’re here :)
Question for you: How many times have you said “ok, THIS time I’m going to get in shape for real!”
Every time I had an event to look forward to, I was making a plan to be in the best shape of my life- going to the beach with my girlfriends, lakehouse weekend, high school reunion.
So I would deprive myself for a week or two, thinking that I needed to restrict calories, fat and joy in order to get lean.
And then I would cheat. I would say “screw it, I really want that (fill-in-the-blank junk food of the moment)” and I would eat it, feel terrible, and then be SO MAD at myself for not having the willpower to just stick to the plan.
At the event, I would be frustrated that I didn’t feel confident, because if I had just been stronger, more disciplined, then I would look better and be the “fit” and “healthy” friend. The girl that everyone envied.
Now, maybe wisdom really does come with age, and I’ve just gotten old enough to be more comfortable in my body. But I don’t think age is the only factor here.
No, I think that I have FINALLY figured out how to eat REAL food without depriving myself.
Seriously… and you may hate me for saying this…I can honestly say that I EAT WHATEVER I WANT.
I know. But here’s the thing. What I WANT looks different now than it used to. Check it out:
I WANT food that makes me feel good.
I WANT to enjoy my food without feeling bloated.
I WANT to indulge every once in a while without beating myself up for it.
Maybe back in the day, I wanted Taco Bell. But now I know that eating whatever I want means eating food that makes me feel REALLY good.
I want to help you feel good too.
This is so much more than just losing a few extra pounds, right? This is about learning how to eat food for the rest of your life. This is about giving your body the nutrients it needs to thrive. This is NOT about being on a diet that makes you want to avoid all of your friends!
I am a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and have had a passion for health and wellness for as long as I can remember. My mom took me to my first yoga class in high school, and when I realized I was reading nutrition books for fun, I decided it was time to make a career of this.
I became a yoga teacher in 2009 and an NTP in 2017. I could not love my job more. I get to help people FEEL GOOD using food and movement. It doesn’t get much better than that, and I would LOVE to help you.
Now tell me below…what is your NUMBER ONE goal? If you could snap your fingers and have ONE problem fixed, what would it be?
