Ladies, love yourself for those small steps you’re taking every day, not just the results in the mirror!
I won’t lie, the thought of spending a week in a bathing suit with a bunch of people who are SUPER FIT on our Health Coaching Vacation in Mexico last week gave me a bit of anxiety! 😱 👙👙👙👙😱
I have stretch marks from gaining and losing so much weight over the years (thank you yo-yo dieting, thyroid issues, anxiety medication and pregnancy 😜) I may not have a flat stomach, and I certainly will always have cellulite.
But then I realized, you know what? I am working on living a healthier lifestyle (for the most part), investing in mine and my family’s long-term health…and THAT is what matters more than a dang swimsuit! 👊
I will never be one to completely abstain from chocolate, eat low calorie/no carb/high fat (that never works long term for me anyway 😂) or exercise like crazy. I just don’t like to feel restricted, and I know I can find a healthy balance that I’m proud of no matter what the heck I’m wearing or who I’m with 😍
None of us are perfect, but we are all pretty AMAZING! Can I get an AMEN?! 🙌 And if you’re looking for that balance in your life too, and just need some basic nutrition& mindset guidelines that work in REAL LIFE … comment below friend!
I’m starting our Intuitive Eating DITCH THE DIET group soon, you should join us 💕 No more cutting out food groups or counting calories, just learning how to SIMPLY fuel our own individual bodies best WITHOUT restrictions! I’ll send you some more info. #healthyandhappyforlife
Moms – What time of day is your energy the lowest?!
I was so excited when my friend Sarah said she is no longer having that dreaded AFTERNOON SLUMP!!! Because I know how life changing that can be as a busy mom 😊😊😊 She’s got two boys to keep up with, and her family recently moved cross-country for her husband’s ministry job. So she needs all the energy she can get 💕
Sarah’s also lost 25 lbs. 😍 And her immune system and mood are MUCH better, just from following a basic meal plan and adding a little exercise and superfoods into her day 🎉 Here’s what she says has helped her make this lifestyle shift 👉“I have a coach to hold me accountable and check in on me… that cares about my choices. And I have a basic plan to follow…I love that I am not eliminating whole food groups, so I can make meals that my whole family will enjoy 🍳🍝 I just watch my own portions!”
Sarah, I’m so proud of all the progress you’ve made, you are totally ROCKING this new lifestyle lady 🙌💕 #progressnotperfection #liveyourbestlife #busymamasunite #faithoverfear
Rebecca decided when her son was only *6 weeks old* that she was going to figure out a way to fit healthier eating and living into her busy days…because she knew if she took care of HERSELF too, everyone in the family would benefit! 😉 Happy mama with energy, peace and confidence = happier family! 💕💕 She is down 11 lbs in 6 weeks, but says the biggest benefits are increased energy, better mood, and strength!
“Our online group of ladies helps keep me accountable, but reminds me that PERFECTION is not necessary – no pressure or judgement! 😘 And having a coach is a great resource if you have questions or need ideas on how to tweak things! This lifestyle really simplifies everything, and I like the 30 min workouts because they are quick but effective. If I want a longer workout, I can do that too. It’s nice that you can really personalize the plan to fit your lifestyle–so that makes it easy to stick with. 😉
Also, you can eat real food and I am always full! Real food really does fill you up! 🥙🥗🍳🍝🍎 As for fitting in cooking, I use a lot of crock pot recipes from Pinterest and that I get from my coach/group. That makes it so easy! I make my meals during my little ones nap time, or at least prep, so we have meals every night. I often make enough for leftovers to save time 💕
My superfood smoothies have been satisfying my sweet tooth too! I used to crave sweets, and now I crave healthier foods. 🎉 Of course you can have an occasional treat, but you can make these treats healthier and/or just watch your portions.”
Rebecca your dedication to taking back your health, and setting an example for your entire family, has been SO amazing to watch! 😍 You truly are a testimony to what we can do when we have
👉 an easy plan to follow 🙌
👉a solid support system of other healthier minded ladies 💃
👉true desire to feel better and LIVE each day to the fullest
I’m so honored to have you in this journey with us!!
