Numbers Don't Define You

Recently, I was reminded of how much pressure I used to put on myself about weight.  I pressured myself to keep my weight under a certain number and celebrated when I was able to get there.  When I was at the doctor's office last week for a regular check-up, they had to record my weight.  Even though I do not weigh myself, I knew the general range of what was going to pop up on the scale.  When the number popped up, it was higher than that number I was talking about earlier - but I did not feel bad about it.  I felt good.

Keeping It Real

Recently, I was reviewing professional pictures that I had done back in March.  I was very wary while looking at these pictures because everything about them were professional - the makeup, the lighting, the editing (some of them are actually unedited, but I have not posted them yet).  I was hesitant to start posting any professional pictures on social media because one of my intentions as a coach is to help women embrace their natural bodies and I felt like a hypocrite looking all done up.

Change Your Motivator

I've been hearing from various people that they are trying to live a healthier lifestyle but are trying to change what motivates them.  These people do not want their motivator to be having a "bikini body".  They are searching for a better reason but do not know how to get rid of this mindset around appearance.

As an anti-dieter and an advocate for body positivity, I love helping people with these types of challenges.  My main motivator during my early 20's was to have the bikini body and that left me feeling unworthy and lonely.

This Weekend's Win

This past weekend, I did a photoshoot for my business.  I needed a major picture upgrade and I finally got around to booking a great photographer.  I am super excited to get my pictures and share some more food freedom and body love with you all!

You know what felt really good about doing this photoshoot - the fact that I never stressed about dieting or working out.  In fact, I had ice cream both Thursday night and Friday night (my shoot was Saturday morning).  In the weeks/days leading up to my shoot, I didn't restrict myself from eating what I wanted and I didn't over exhaust myself at the gym in order to lose some inches.
