After launching the Clean + Bright + Sexy training series, I’ve been receiving many emails filled with personal stories. I love reading them and find it humbling that people share their stories and desires with me.
So today I wanted to share my personal story with you.
When I first started working as a personal trainer I thought I was doing everything right. I would workout a lot and was über-strict with my diet. I was eating all the “right” foods, doing the newest and coolest workouts and taking supplements I would see published in magazines. Did it work for a while? Yes.
But eventually it stopped working. I started getting sick. I felt tired, crappy and bloated all the time. That’s when I discovered I was eating a lot of “healthy” foods that my body just didn’t like. When I stopped eating foods I was intolerant to, I started to feel great again. That made me decide to become a holistic nutritionist so I could help more people feel healthy and strong too.
Fast forward a few years, I was still eating foods that were healthy and made my body feel good, but something still wasn’t right. I didn’t have a healthy relationship with food. I would obsess over portion sizes and food labels, and categorized foods as either good or bad. And if I ate a “bad food”, I would stress over how much I needed to workout to burn it off.
I was never over weight. But many years living as a dancer and actor and working in the fitness industry, made me very conscious of my body. Crazy conscious! Conscious of how I looked, of the food I put in my mouth, and what dress size I would have to put on my resume. And for years I felt like I was in a constant love / hate relationship with my body. Some days I felt healthy and sexy. And others, totally uncomfortable in my own skin.
It wasn’t until a few years ago it started to click for me. It didn’t really matter what I was eating, or what I was doing to working out. I needed to work on loving my body.
So I stopped subscribing to a set a strict rules. I made having fun and sex a priority. And most importantly, I shifted my mindset from eating healthy and exercising to “correct something that was wrong with my body” to doing it because I love my body and this is the best gift I can give myself.
More passion and fun in my life. Staying healthy, fit and toned became way easier. And I started to feel confident in my own skin (with or without clothes on!)
I’ve helped many people get happier + healthier and love their bodies and I can help you do that, too!
I am really passionate about this program because I know it works.
