Eat More, Weigh Less?
"I HAVE TO LOSE THIS WEIGHT!!"
"I've been working out a lot and eating healthy but I'm still struggling to lose weight..."
First, how long have you been working out 'a lot' and eating healthy?
Second, what does "eating healthy" mean for you?
Lastly, working out a lot? What does that mean? 30 mins 6 x a week, or like an hour of cardio followed by an hour of HIIT or weights....6 x a week?
The later? working out waaaaaayyyy too much unless you're strategically training for the Olympics or a Bikini Comp.
GIRL, please stop.
You're not only overdoing it, you are (could be) doing detrimental things to your health. I know because it happened to me and I do not wish any of the consequences on anyone else.
I restricted calories & restricted myself from eating other nutrient dense foods.
I became obsessed with working out because that's what you did to lose weight.
I'll be the first to admit that I've had...
Girl, Chew Your Food!
I don’t have time to eat.
I never have time to eat breakfast/lunch.
I don’t eat breakfast.
I eat lunch at my desk.
I forget to eat.
Omg I like never eat a real meal-I’m lucky if I can scarf down a granola bar.
I eat all the things when I get home from work.
I’m so hungry!
Hangry. Yah I’m hangry!
Sound familiar? This You?
I was sitting at my kitchen table brain dumping ideas to call my next program while...
Writing like a maniac all the thoughts.
Scrolling the gram for inspiration.
Shoveling food in my mouth as if it was my last meal.
I don’t even know if I was breathing.
Firecrackers bursting in my head.
Then I stopped
Took a breath
And said, “Girl, chill. Chew your food.”
And that was it... !
I realized I was doing the exact opposite of what this program is all about! We all do this.
We are all guilty of the grind, hustling, frantically working to finish a project, running errands without...
What was the scariest thing you've done?
How did it make you feel?
Were you excited? or 'poop your pants' frightened?
In July of 2017, I decided to resign from a 9-5 sales job. Insert a "WTF" moment. It was by far the scariest, yet most exciting time of my life. I was actually listening to my freaking soul!
Honestly, I should have left that job years before but I was comfortable & content. I never had work to do outside of work. I grew a network of friends. Seems easy right? Well, since college, I've always had this "hustler" mentality; always loved making more money, "fun money". Why didn't I just get another full time job that paid more? Hm... that's a good question.
The reason: I didn't know what I wanted to do, so leaving the sales job to go train for another big corp position did not seem too appealing for me; especially when I was trying to run a side health coaching business as well.
The thoughts: "If I quit this job, and start working for another company; the training is...
