Micro Interviews

“My definition of wellness has really changed a lot over the last 5 years. I use to focus on body image and fitness – mostly from a physical perspective. Now I care more about how I feel on a daily basis, versus how I look. I love talking to other people and getting ideas on how they live their life and what makes them happy and what strategies they use. Because if you want to improve your life in certain areas it’s all about strategy and habits that you pick up. I’m a very regimented person so my morning routine is always the same – I get up, I have hot lemon water, and answer some emails and then I work out to clear my head.”

I was on medication and I started working out and that made me feel better. But I was still having bouts of depression every 6 months and I didn’t know why. Going to the gym helped because working out naturally releases endorphins. But really it wasn’t until I fixed my digestion, detoxed my body and payed attention to chemicals that were in my environment that I felt like a veil was lifted. My energy went through the roof.”

I am most grateful for the people that have come into my life in the last 2 years. I really changed my circle of friends and paid attention to what takes from my energy and what gives me energy. I was doing a lot of personal training and realized that was very demanding of my energy.”

I love coaching women who feel like they have lost control of their bodies. Let’s say I have a client that has to lose 50 lbs. and is unsure of where to start. I coach them and make small changes to transform their bodies and the weight is gone. The best part is they have more energy, they sleep better and they have better mental clarity. I just love that. It’s great when they get excited for life again. That’s the part that I like. “

For a woman to lose weight you can restrict and clean up diet and of course exercise, but if there are hormonal imbalances and digestive issues, that might impede her ability to lose weight. Physically changing the body isn’t just what you eat and how you move, it’s how you think, the quality of your food, the quality of your life. The positive and negative influences in your life are so important. “

 

 

In the summer of 2013 I was dealing with heavy depression. I was in contest prep and pushing myself to continue on – even though I didn’t really want to. I did end up placing 4th at nationals that year. My depression is what really made we want to go into holistic nutrition in hopes of getting answers for myself and also for my clients.”

“Brendon Burchard is a big influence on me. Every morning when I get out of the shower I listen to his videos and find inspiration on how to lead a better life and be more productive. He focuses on business growth, so I learned that it’s really about taking something and running with it. We all have ideas of where we want to be. Choose what you want to do and go for it. Everybody doubts themselves and feels the what ifs – but if you don’t go for it you’ll never know.”

You have to figure out what makes you happy on a daily basis. If you are making good money but you’re unhappy with your work or job, then it’s not worth it. If you have a passion, just go for it. Decide what you want to do, narrow it in and do it. Do it for the next year and see what happens.”
