WELLNESS not Weight
If our weight is a “symptom”, then what’s your weight telling you? Finally, you can get off of the treadmill of body/life dis-satisfaction and find freedom! I am the Coach I wish I had when I was going through a time when I felt very disconnected to my body, mind and spirit. I will not only share my knowledge and experience on my transformation, but show you how to trust your inner expert to FEEL YOUR BEST, and therefore, look your best, too!
The Internal Workout?
Society may say push harder, no pain-no gain, or that your weight is your worth, but I’m here to remind you that YOU are so much more. When we workout our “why” from the inside-out, we then choose to move our body out of love not punishment which leads to REAL, lasting wellness. Learn how can this internal workout help your workouts… & your life!
Do you workout because you have to or because you get to? The concepts within this video are a game changer on how you approach your workouts and your life;) Listening to your body before, during and after your workouts makes such a difference in how you feel. Do you practice Intuitive Exercise?
Why Loving Me?
How is “Loving Me” different? It’s all in the mindset of what’s motivating you. Instead of: “Sigh…How do I look today?” Try: “How do I feel today?” Chances are that answer will affect how you think you look. Love & Own ALL of you because it’s from this point that you can then move in the direction you want to go on this inside-out, self-love journey.
FEEL it to HEAL it?
Healthy-vs-Unhealthy Coping: If there’s anything that I have learned on my healing journey from my eating disorder & a debilitating illness, is that when we allow ourselves the space to feel we will heal! The emotion that we are avoiding is never as scary as the dark place that we remain stuck in if we choose avoidance. What we RESIST, PERSISTS! FEEL IT ALL! The good & the not so good. It’s facing up to it and through it that you will get to the other side! You can do this! Trust you will get to the other side of it and you will!
