I started coaching after overcoming my own mindset struggles brought on by fitness competitions.
I went from the best shape of my life to my worst in a matter of months. Not a single person made a comment to me on my rapid weight gain (30+ pounds and I’m not even 5’2) or my newly developed eating behaviors post-competitions, but it wasn’t necessary. I knew what I was doing to myself and I chose to continuously act then look the other way. Constant overeating, not listening to my body, and having a horrible mindset as it related to my health and fitness is exactly what led me to that middle photo. I needed that reality check. Slowly but surely, I figured it out on my own. More than anything, I wish I had a coach that would have helped me by diving into my self sabotaging behaviors, my thoughts around those behaviors, and was there to help get me out of my own head.
At the time in 2018, I didn’t know that a functional nutrition and health mindset coach could work with me on these uncomfortable yet real behaviors + negative thought patterns. It would have greatly expedited the process and saved me a hell of a lot of time and tears.
Once I truly understood what it took to be on the other side of self-sabotage, I became a coach that helps with exactly that.
Just know, you are not alone. Whatever you’re struggling with is absolutely changeable.
