As I close my eyes and think about why I became a health coach, why I live a holistic lifestyle, why I advocate for living mindfully and eating intuitively…what I see is beauty.
Beauty in all women; women that feel confident in their bodies, have energy, are truly present in life, relaxed and nourished. We all can be that woman.
In today’s technology driven world, we are constantly being told about the next fad diet, the perfect body, the best workout. The influx of data can be overwhelming and leave us feeling confused.
But what if there was no “it” diet, perfect body or ideal workout?
What if we were all in tune with our bodies and feed it what it desired and moved it in a way that felt right? And at the end of the day felt freakin amazing in our own skin. This is beauty, this is you, this is why I became a health coach.
In my late 20’s I always felt tired and stressed. My skin health wasn’t great; it was either too oily or too dry or with blemishes. I never felt comfortable with a naked face. I ate lunch out almost everyday and my stomach felt gassy a lot.
I never thought of food as nourishment or what type of food my body needed.
At 34 I was newly married and we were trying to conceive our first child. When month after month it didn’t happen I started to feel like my body was failing me and was left feeling insecure in my own skin.
This was a turning point in my life where I suddenly started questioning everything I was putting in and on my body.
I am proud to say that that today we have two beautiful children and everyday since then I continue my journey to a healthier me.
