This is a place for real, & lasting TRANSFORMATION
Feel satisfied instead of stuffed.
Look forward to vacations, holidays, and special events, knowing that your jeans are going to fit when they are over.
Change the negative, ugly voices in your head yelling at you just because you had a piece of pie.
Go after and achieve any goal with a system of habits to support you along the way.
It’s time to uncover the real stuff. You know, the stuff that food helps you avoid right now?
As your coach, I offer you a strategy that has you feeling peace, not panic around food.
This is open communication and coaching on a deep level.
Accountability is great. The right accountability is life changing.
When you’re in danger of quitting on your dreams, having someone who believes in you and is willing to hold you 100% accountable offers an unquestionable advantage.
Let’s face it.
An app can’t hold you accountable.
Your best friend? Not a chance.
Your loved ones want to save you from your struggle, not hold you to it. When times get tough, they want nothing more than to let you quit.
Change is complicated. Even the people closest to us can struggle with our growth (ahem, sabotage).
Let your gal pals and your main squeeze off the hook.
I don’t coddle, cheerlead or dish out military-style verbal beatdowns.
As your coach, I’ll educate, support, and encourage you. I’ll help you navigate through rough patches, and give you the tools for success.
You’ll be empowered to use these tools for life.
You’ll look both inward and outward on this fitness journey and you’ll walk away equipped to maintain your new body for a lifetime.
Oh, and go ahead and take a hammer to your scale, calorie counters and rules that cut out entire food groups.
I’m not anti-fatloss, or anti-discipline. I’m also not in the camp that things everyone should diet or strive for weight-loss.
Thinking you have to be a certain
size to feel worthy or having a life
I’m all for:
Tuning into your body’s natural hunger and fullness signals
Having a peaceful relationship with food
Ditching the diet-as-a-lifestyle mentality
Bringing your entire being into the fitness lifestyle mix
A little about me…
I’ve spent the majority of my life stuck in the diet cycle. Always tasting success, only to regain my weight and then some. The pain from failure took major hits on my confidence and self-worth. What I didn’t know then, is that my story was not unique. I was among the many who have yo-yo dieted for as long as they could remember. So much effort, only to feel and look worse.
It didn’t seem to matter how small I was, or how large, there was always something to be fixed. Always something that needed change.
What I’ve learned without a doubt is that if you aren’t confident in how you got the body you wanted, you’ll never feel at home there. On the flip side, if you wait until you’re a certain size before you make peace with it, you’ll find that you never truly get there.
There is something I am SO clear on now:
Is food currently doing all the heavy lifting when it comes to managing your emotions?
I know all about that.
There’s a difference between emotional eating to avoid our feelings and eating simply for pleasure.
My previous compulsion to always squeeze into that smaller size lead me to some serious soul searching that cracked me open in the most amazing way.
I hold a prayer in my heart for young girls that experience body image issues before they’ve even had a chance to grow into one. My heart aches for the mom’s that pass on their body hate without realizing it, or not having the tools to change.
I’ve learned that the relationship I neglected the most was the one I had with myself.
Getting serious about self care has made me a better coach.
I’ve been coaching for nearly a decade, but through the years, I’ve grown beyond the need for a certain physique. Fitness goes well beyond a certain look to achieve. I’ve learned that a big part of feeling at home in your body is bringing your spirit and heart into the equation.
I took a deep dive into the soul to find a way to be both emotionally fulfilled while being physically fit. I want to share everything I’ve learned with you.
According to the fabulous and wise Eckhart Tolle, nothing should follow this. If it does, it’s ego. Well Eckhart, I am working on it.
Since you probably still want to know a little bit about the role I play in this beautiful human experience, let’s let a little ego in, just for today.
You might find me sipping my morning cappuccino, curled up with a good book, or practicing yoga on the lawn. It isn’t uncommon to catch me meditating under a tree or on the edge of my bed while being rudely interrupted by puppy kisses. I lift weights, run, flip tires, and I love it all.
Sunsets on the farm make me cry, and I can stare at the stars for endless amounts of time. I enjoy walks with my dogs, and playing with the animals on the farm (the babies are the best).
I love that I’m blessed with the role of Wife (because I have an amazing husband), Mom (my 4 boys are rock star cool), Coach (I truly love that I get to connect with such bad ass women every day), & Farmer (again, baby farm animals. ‘nuf said.).
A big part of my journey into the soul , was discovering Danielle Laporte’s Desire Map system. I got clear on how I want to FEEL vs being at the mercy of an endless performance-based task list.
My core desired feelings are Soulfully Centered, Blissful, Connected, and Aligned. I make my daily decisions around how to bring more of these feelings into my life. I set an intention each year, and I read it every day.
That’s why I’m here to help you feel at home in your body. Empowering women to step into their inner strength while achieving outer strength sets my heart on fire.
It’s my life purpose.
That sounds lovely, and it is! It’s my highlight reel.
I also curse too much, fall asleep during meditation (again), and skip the occasional training session to watch Netflix. I pick fresh fruit off the tree and no, I don’t wash it before popping it in my mouth. I am not Marie Kondo clean (much to my husband’s dismay), and up until a couple years ago, I didn’t even keep a schedule. I have been known to sleep through my alarm, and some days I skip breakfast.
Now, I’m gonna hop on a soapbox for a minute:
Pleasure is our birthright and food is one of the greatest, most beautiful parts of the human experience. I’m DONE with the fitness industry’s underlying message of constant denial in order to feel beautiful or worthy.
I love nearly all the nutritious foods (except green bell peppers, thanks Mom!), and I also love brownies, apple fritters, and grilled cheese sandwiches.
Being a yo-yo dieter the majority of my life, I have a deep understanding of the power that food holds. I know how it feels to be out of control, to own the food police identity, to be terrified of and in judgement of every bite. I know what disordered eating looks like, and more importantly, I know what it feels like. The good news? I’ve experienced the freedom that comes from stepping away from that for good.
That’s what I’m going to help you achieve.
Fitness shouldn’t act like a tyrant!
Fitness is an important part of honoring your body and living a vibrantly, but it shouldn’t consume your life. Body transformation won’t create self worth, lasting joy, or peace on its own.
With a back-to-basics approach, we’ll bring fitness to a heart centered space, a place of care and alignment.
The transformation you experience will last a lifetime.
Fitness CAN BE EMPOWERING, but it needs to come from a place of honoring not abusing your body. In other words when you begin to eat for satisfaction, and to meet your body’s needs, you find that you DON’T want eat the donuts 3x per day. Nourishing your body feels incredible. Treat foods with a high pleasure rating, the ones that release dopamine and oxytocin, are not off limits! You’ll learn how to be satisfied and how to feed your body according to its needs.
