I must tell you, I actually became a health coach because I needed to get healthy.
Having battled with my weight since I was about 12 years old, suffered with hormone imbalance since I was about 12 years old, and like many of you, lived with mood swings, cramps, digestive issues, and headaches, I sadly thought they were completely normal, just part of being a girl.
As I got older, I started getting all of the symptoms associated with aging. Arthritic fingers and hands, unexplained weight gain, sore hips, fatigue, and again, I was conditioned to believe this was the way it was meant to be, just part of getting older. I started feeling tired, used up, and my self-esteem plummeted.
But after making simple lifestyle changes, taking time for self-care, working on forgiveness and self-love, eating more whole foods and taming my sugar addiction, I feel better than I have in years. I still eat some sugar and indulge occasionally in old favorites - as I think it's necessary for our well-being, at least it is for mine! So I don't push any particular dietary style on my clients, no fad diets, no deprivation, and I always allow room for moderation.
Now you would think that knowing what to eat and how to take care of ourselves would be simple. And in reality, it is. But we have gotten so far away from simple, we live in complicated times in a complicated world. Our food is now full of hormones, antibiotics, chemicals and ingredients, which we have no idea what they are, much less are able to pronounce. Add to that, our lives our filled to the brim with modern day stresses, leaving us to run on empty, while taking care of everyone else’s needs. Eventually, somewhere along the line, we will suffer, either physically, mentally, emotionally, or all three.
Everyone is different and what works for me might not work for you. It's all about bio-individuality and discovering our own needs and solutions. My goal is to help you find what makes you feel your best, what makes you function on high. l will create a completely personalized “roadmap to health” that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals. I want to help you get back your health, your energy, your passion for living, and to develop a healthy positive relationship with food and a newfound love and respect for your body. A Health Coach is your partner, it is an interactive process. I’ll be there to guide and support you. So get ready, we’re going on this adventure together.
