Hesitation is what I felt when my friend suggested that I enroll in the Health Coach Training Program at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN).
To put it bluntly - I'm NOT the person people come to for recipes and healthy food advice. I'm the girl who orders chicken & waffles and a bellini at Sunday brunch!
So, you can imagine my confusion as she pitched me on how perfect I was for this program.
I was desperate for a change. I signed up.
The way I saw it - at minimum - it would be a positive distraction from all the things that felt out of control in my life. And learning what and how to eat couldn't hurt.
As I listened and learned, I understood that health and happiness is more than just cutting out fast food and running on the treadmill.
All the other parts of your life - your career, relationships, finances, spirituality - they matter too.
In other words, you need all parts of the pizza to make it a whole pie. You are what you eat -- plus so much more!
If you know me, you know that avocados are my favorite and I understand the benefits of whole foods and green smoothies.
BUT pantry hauls and grocery store tours aren't what drives me.
I'm excited to help women tackle the mental, emotional, and spiritual self-work that is needed to push past the blocks and fears that keep them stuck.
