You’re a what?
Why would people need a coach?
Like… how can you really help them just by talking to them?
I get this all the time. Someone asks me what I do and I tell them I’m a health and life coach.
That’s usually when I get a blank stare. Maybe a half smile and nod if I’m lucky.
So, for those of you that are curious about exactly what I do, I will try my best to describe it here.
All of you know what you need to do to change a certain aspect of your life. Maybe you want to lose weight. Maybe you want to be happier. Or maybe you want to stop yelling at your kids. You know what you need to do (even though some of you tell yourself you don’t, you really do know) but seems like you are unable to follow through. You even take a few steps to get to your goal. But after a while, you fall back into old habits. Nothing seems to change and it feels like you just keep...
For 5 weeks, I have been breaking down the top five “health rules” that I BREAK.
One thing that I pray for you is that you never take any person’s opinion as fact. While some of these “rules” might work for you, I would say the majority of people it is actually hurting rather than helping them. Even when I tell you my opinion, you need to decide for yourself if you will benefit from this or not. You need to test it out by applying it to your life, listen to how your body reacts and then by making YOUR OWN DECISION.
Last week’s rule was EAT EVERYTHING IN MODERATION. I’d love to hear your opinions so don’t forget to stop by my Facebook page and leave questions or comments!
This is the last week! Of course, I saved the best for last!

Breakfast is optional my friends. ...

A year and a half ago I tried Keto. It was awesome! I got to eat as much avocado, peanut butter and coconut oil my heart desired. It was a dream came true.
Until it wasn’t.
I started in May. May was great. The kids were still in school, I had a routine and there weren’t very many celebrations to contend with. Then summer hit. The lure of ice cream treats or a cold brew at the end of an evening was too much. All my head could think about was how I was going to hit my macros just right so I had a few extra carbs just to have a lick of something sweet.
My mind started to become consumed. “Did I hit my fat goal for today?” “I had those blueberries. Maybe that was too many carbs. What if I kicked myself out of keto?” “Actually, maybe I have a few carbs left and I can eat this extra portion of veggies. Oh, those fresh strawberries...
