I started my blog 5 years ago to share my journey with my friends and family. For a long time it was just that, a way to share what was happening in my life with the people I love. After a while though, it grew, and people outside my little circle found their way here. I love that what I’m saying resonates with so many people!
As my readership has grown, people have asked me to offer coaching. I’ve tried a couple times to figure out how to incorporate private coaching, but it just hasn’t worked. I have two jobs, kids with busy schedules, a household to manage and a marriage to keep healthy! I never intended this blog as a business, and at this point I’m simply not able to meet the time demands of coaching. A time may come in the future when I’m able to effectively offer this service, but for now I’ve had to be honest with myself that it doesn’t work with all my other responsibilities. The demand is there though, I get requests daily, so I have put together a couple resources for people in lieu of coaching services.
First, my ebooks and workout programs. I’ve written several workout programs for people at various levels of fitness, including one for absolute beginners. I’ve priced them very reasonably to keep them accessible. I also have an eBook called ‘Taking Up Space’ that is my guide to healing your body image and eating to support a healthy weight. You can check out all these programs by clicking here.
I also have two facebook groups dedicated to supporting these programs. The ‘First 100 Days‘ group is rather quiet, but if you have a question or concern about the program, it’ll be addressed there. My ‘Eating the Food‘ group is HUGE, and very active. There you will find support from people who’ve been through what you’re going through and can throw you a rope to help you find your way. I stay active in both groups to answer as many questions as I can, and there are many wise people who help me do that there. Please join us!
I get dozens, sometimes even hundreds of questions every day on my blog, on my facebook pages and facebook groups, and via email. There’s no way for me to answer every single one of them, so I’ve done my best to gather wise and experienced people together to help support those with questions. I appreciate all the support I have received, and am hoping to help this community grow in healthy ways. Thank YOU for helping me with that!
