Cooking is always more fun with friends 💕
And the best part? 6 months ago it was frozen pizza and Stouffer’s lasagna most nights, but now Krissy can cook with the best of them and is totally teaching me some things!!! 🥘🥗🌮🌯🍗🍳🍎
Her main goal when we started her Health Coaching sessions was to make quick but healthy meals for herself and her family. That way they get sick less often, and she can have the energy and good quality sleep that are PRICELESS as a mom 😍😴🙌
Especially because Krissy is a busy mom raising 3 little girls, working the family business and taking care of their horse farm … which was leaving her little time for cooking, and at the mercy of choices made out of convenience that weren’t leaving her feeling very well in the end. 🙈#beentheredonethat
So we came up with a game plan to work up to a better meal routine over time, because small steps that are more manageable really add up over time 👍! We went grocery shopping, learned how to decode food labels, researched recipes, came up with ideas for picky eaters and even looked at how foods impact our immune function ❤️
Now she is ready to fly on her own, because she’s built solid basic habits and has the knowledge to help make healthy living easier, even when life gets crazy 😉 I am SO proud of you girl, you have truly transformed your family’s future and you deserve every ounce of energy you have gained! 💃
And I have to show off this awesome under-the-counter spice rack she made! 😍 Mason jar lids that are attached to the cupboard, so you just unscrew the bottom of the jar to get your spices! 🎉
PS If having more energy to truly live and enjoy your life is a priority, we should chat! Just click the “Contact” tab – I do virtual sessions too 💕
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!!
