Return to normal.
I want to help you find these, that’s what I’m here for.
If You've Been an Obsessive Over-Exerciser, I Feel You
I know exactly how you feel if you’re currently completely depleted from 2x day workouts, cutting your calories to your bare basal metabolic rate (that's never a good idea!), weighing your lettuce and beating yourself up no matter what you do.
After recovering from over 10 years of very hard training and 5-7 years bouncing between (undiagnosed) anorexia & binge eating and also Hypothalamic Amenorrhea (loss of period due to overtraining and under eating), I want to tell you that there is hope and you can stop this madness.
Let's Find the Balance Again
We simply have to course correct if we've gone too far to the extreme. I want to pull you back from extremes and show you how easy life can be once we return to normal:
👉Eat in a way that supports you and that you enjoy
👉Work out in moderation, doing just enough but not too much exercise
👉Have positive mindset and 100% body respect, regardless of where you are on the journey
👉Realize what an AMAZING badass you truly are. Seriously, open your eyes!! Everyone else sees it!
Here's How My Approach to Body Weight and Size Is Different
You may think that I'm just another body-positive-food-freedom coach. True, I am all that, but here’s what’s different about me: I am TRULY about that middle ground, I don’t accept shaming anyone’s goals or put anyone down for what they currently do. Here’s what I mean by that:
💠While I don’t coach weight loss and don’t even weigh myself, I don’t shame those who have a weight loss goal. In other words, there are WAY more important markers of our health, but do I believe that some people benefit from weight loss and if they want to do it for physique change I’m fine as long as their health is fine. I find body shaming unacceptable either way, whether the target is a skinny person or a fat person.
💠While I won’t you kill you with hardcore exercise to get those🔥abs, I do want you to move. Movement is healthy when it's done in a healthy way. Fitness shouldn’t be your LIFE, but let's also not call people who prioritize fitness, obsessed, without knowing much else about them. I love fitness and been doing some form of it since I 9 years old. Of course, there were times when I severely overdid it. But that's not the fault of fitness. That's on me. I was the one who used fitness the wrong way.
Healthy & Balanced Body & Mind Are the Ultimate Goal
I understand why many former over-exercisers and those who struggled with obsessive eating hate even the word “exercise”. I also try to understand why they believe that all weight loss is always bad, but that’s not me personally. To me, a healthy, balanced body and mind is the ultimate goal. And that goal is achieved via smart exercise, balanced eating, and a whole lot of positivity.
These are the exact things I want to help you with. I had to get it off the chest and I am interested to hear your thoughts on this topic.
