Finding your “center” with FOOD ~

 #tuesdaytruth~•... Let’s be honest it’s January 15th and FOOD can be the toughest part!! We can survive without a workout... we can give up alcohol and other vices, but FOOD can’t disappear. Good habits and cravings and emotional eating can be the toughest cycle to change... especially after the holiday season and all the splurges and fun food favorites! Don’t quit though— change is possible and probable if you stay determined and examine your day to day!!

 ▪️Stop buying what you abuse. Salt, chocolate, cookies or chips!! If it isn’t there, it  is much harder to abuse. That doesn’t mean out of “sight” is out of “mind”... it means you are CHOOSING to keep it OUT so you can master more self discipline!! 

▪️Get a friend or coworker and experiment with some new healthier recipes/snacks. Most people are creatures of habit. We like the same 10 snacks and the same 10 meals ... with a little variety now and again. Don’t feel like you need a new idea for each day of the month!!! 

▪️Eat at home! You know what’s in your food and snacks that way. You save money!! Plus it helps you prepare healthier options for your entire family! Remember MORE whole food > less processed is a win for everyone! 

▪️Realize that healthier food really does  HELP YOU feel better...When you feel more motivated, and have more energy it’s a bonus for your self worth!! (Especially when you don’t give into that box of cookies or fast food drive through like last time!)

▪️NO ONE can do this for you!! As trainers and coaches we love to assist, educate and help create ideas, BUT ultimately you decide if you will do it, or you won’t. Hire a coach, who helps you devise and work on “your” plan to stay on task. 

▪️Challenges and programs can be fun, but they really are not permanent!! “Real life” eventually gets in the way!! It’s key to find a “way of life” for food that works for you!! 28 day “fixes” rarely fix much except that you end deprived and splurge on day #30! Detox with whole foods and water...NOT the “latest greatest cleanse” for $400. Fancy isn’t the fix!! It also isn’t about deprivation if you want this to last ... 😑

▪️Social media isn’t all TRUE... Eating cake, nachos etc and having an amazing physique is NOT reality for MOST!!! Stop following the people that tell you it’s easy... It’s NOT. You don’t have to be “perfect” but don’t expect that eating “anything” offset by a workout is the answer. 

▪️Remember what your goal is, and every choice is building or breaking your results! There’s always room for errors, and a bad decision isn’t the excuse to QUIT. It’s a •setback• ... that’s all!! Stay determined to move FORWARD, and keep looking that way! If you slow down and stay •centered• on your “why,” lifestyle changes CAN happen!! It’s really about one choice and one challenge at a time!!! You CAN do this!! I believe in you, and I can help you! Stay centered on your why. ~•L 💚  ➡️➡️

People, plans and purpose for 2019

Another 365 day journey coaching a •live centered• way of life ...As I look back, I’m reminded how much PEOPLE affect our health, wellness and state of mind!! Are you spending the majority of your time with people adding or taking from your state of wellbeing !!?

We can do many things well, but IF we don’t find supportive, encouraging, kind people, we still may NOT feel good or live healthy!!

When I took this leap to start a training business 5 years ago, I didn’t really know who would encourage me...support me, or possibly laugh at me for taking such a leap!! ✨ (Btw, I do know now 😉) What I did know, is that I LOVED to connect with people and talk about life, goals and why we do what we do! I had a passion for fitness & health since HS, and knew I had survived disordered eating, obsessing about fitness, being overly concerned with the scale & appearance! 😑 NOT good mindset! NOT healthy, NOT well! I just looked the part!! I finally took the road to balance and true health and never had more peace with who I am!! 🙌🏼

SOooo I continue the journey to LIVE CENTERED + CONNECT with people that need a “real life” coach ~ They don’t need shame, or perfection or a “cookie cutter” plan to follow 21 -101 days... only to return to their regular patterns and ways.

They NEED accountability, encouragement and LIFESTYLE changes that LAST!! That’s IT! They help define what MUST change!! We plan for HOW! Coaching is connecting and is NOT one size for all!!

We stay #centered on being THEIR best & healthiest version!! One on one, small group or workshops, I’m SO grateful for all the people behind the “shoe” shots!! All ages and seasons, “real life” people getting stronger & more confident as they work to live balanced & better than yesterday!! 👏🏻

••>ONLY YOU can decide where you want to be... it’s a NEW year, and I can’t wait to connect & continue‼️ Here’s to the best chapter yet ... 2019! •💚•~L.
