HEALTH COACH, BLOGGER, ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER AND INFLUENCER.
I am (almost) a certified health coach, a fitness enthusiast and a health and wellness blogger, energized on a plant-based diet. As I move into my passion of health coaching I'm noticing that there's not many health coaches out there as of right now that are my age who can CONNECT with young women.
I think that health is becoming more important to people at a younger age and I'm absolutely obsessed with talking to the demographic of 20 to 35 year olds out there who are craving the knowledge of understanding what to eat and how to stay energized throughout the day with their super busy lifestyles.
I have been adjusting my diet to my busy lifestyle over the last 4 years and now feel like I'm in a place where I can give you a list of tips, tricks and recipes for eating healthy, energizing foods that are cheap and efficient!
I wasn't always like this.
I grew up playing sports and eating whateverrrrr I wanted. I ate tons of meat, cheese, brownies, bread, you name it. I never knew there was a correlation between my energy and the foods I ate, or the way my skin looked, or even the way my body looked.
Since I was so active, I never payed attention to my body. It just was what it was, which was slim and fit. As soon as I stopped playing soccer and continued to eat the way I was eating, I found myself 15 pounds heavier and 3 pant sizes bigger, crying in a mirror as I tried on bathing suits. I didn't understand how I gained weight let alone how to get it OFF. I became over overwhelmed, unconfident, and INCREDIBLY LAZY.
From here I went on a roller coaster. I got back in the gym and cut out simple carbs and noticed weight loss. Then I became addicted to that and got a prescription to adderall. I ate this like candy for 3 months and dropped an additional 15 pounds. I was experiencing constant headaches, mood swings, sleep paralysis, lock jaw, exhaustion, and was developing a severely unhealthy relationship with food.
But I didn't care. I was too addicted to my weight loss and the way I looked that I made it okay for me to be the most unhealthy version of myself to get there. After three months of this and a talk with my Dad, I decided to get off the pills, which led to a 25 pound weight gain...MORE THAN WHAT I WANTED TO LOSE TO BEGIN WITH.
My friends had to drag me out of the house and basically beg me to go to the gym with them. It was honestly a really horrible time but also a huge turning point. I knew that I could get back on the pills and look the way I wanted to, but be VERY unhealthy, or I could take the harder, healthier route, and build habits that I could keep forever.
I chose the latter, and it led me to this point.
There was a lot of trial and error in between then and now like, taking meat out of my diet and then removing things like egg yolks and whey protein. Then deciding that I wanted to stop obsessing over counting calories and start focusing on the INGREDIENTS that were in the foods I was eating.
Anyway - I'm here to guide you through all the right steps to get you where YOU want to be. Let's break free from those unhealthy habits, and establish deep-rooted healthy life style changes that will change your life.
