I have a confession to make….
I’ve been eating mindlessly since January (that’s 4 months!). I was tired of “structure” and constantly “planning” out my meals for the week. I needed a BREAK from all of this because mentally I shut down. When I shut down mentally, not only did my nutrition suffer, but so did my fitness.
I was having a hard time buttoning my pants because my stomach had gotten bigger and then I noticed it in my buttocks and thighs. I went to put on my summer shorts and they didn’t fit anymore.
I wanted to cry!
How could I let this happen to me. I’m a Health Coach, right? Health coaches are supposed to be on top of everything with their nutrition, fitness and lives in general, aren’t they?
I felt like a failure and then I realized something.
Being a Health Coach doesn’t make me perfect. I struggle just like anyone else who finds it difficult to lose weight or has low energy. Going through this made me a better health coach because I can relate to others who are struggling with looking Sexy, having Fun and being Fit.
My motivation disappeared and I needed help fast to get me back on track. That’s when I had to put my “health coaching” hat on and start working on myself. That’s when I knew that nutrition and fitness go hand in hand.
Like most, the question always is “Where do I start?” The answer is to start small and big changes will happen.
Here are my 3 Sexy, Fun, Fit tips I recommend to get you back on track:
- Have a nutrition plan to follow that has options that give you flexibility.
- Start moving! Even if it’s only 15-20 minutes a day. Find a workout partner or trainer to help motivate you.
- Get Support. I can’t tell you how important it is to talk with someone about your struggles that understands what you’re going through and how to break free from them. Start a group, partner with your spouse or friend, or invest in a Health Coach.
