It’s no secret…I have always, seriously ALWAYS had a sweet tooth! (Like sneak back into the kitchen and lick all the icing off the cupcakes sweet tooth. 🙈) And I won’t say that I’ve miraculously been cured of my love of sweets. (I still enjoy a good cupcake every now and then.) But I have found a few ways to effectively curb my sweet cravings and figured I’d share with you because I know I’m not the only out there who has struggled slaying the sugar dragon.
It’s been a while since I really chronicled my progress through a program, so I decided as I was committing to this new program and following it by the book, I should. I’m not at a point that I’m really trying to actively lose weight any more, but it’s still fun to challenge myself and see what my body can do. And this program is helping me do just that!
If you’ve hung around here any time at all, you know fitness is my jam. It’s my stress reliever. It’s how I reclaimed my confidence. It helps me be a better mama. And although all of those things help keep me motivated on any given day, I still have days when I just QUIT!!!
Yep, that’s right. The fitness coach sometimes quits her workout. And I want you to give yourself permission to do the same (but not before you try everything you can to get it done!)
Seriously! I think we all have those days, right? The baby didn’t sleep well, we’re battling colds (or the stomach bug), we have a million things on our to-do list…You name it, we’re facing it. But here is the thing…
As a wellness coach and mentor, I am constantly looking for ways I can better support other women in their pursuit of honoring their health, taking better care of themselves (and their families), and living their best lives. So I launched a BRAND NEW opportunity in June that I like to call #livingCHANGErously!
This opportunity is more than just a fun group or a club. It’s an active pursuit of our health – and one that is ongoing. In fact, I sum it up like this…#livingCHANGErously is the state of being in bold pursuit of your healthiest, happiest life; an active commitment to honor your health and live your purpose! But I get it. Even that might be a bit ambiguous, so here are all the details!
I honestly used to be the girl who tried to put a “fitness program” together on my own. I’d look up YouTube videos and put them together with a few of my own exercises to come up with what I thought was something that would help me get results. The problem? Well, I’ve never had any formal training in exercise physiology, and I really don’t know what it takes to create a program. So what I’d put together would help me get moving but not necessarily help me get major results.
