Just when you hit your stride, a curveball…

Just when you hit your stride, a curveball…

Curveballs come in many forms AND they are a part of life. Life will throw you the unexpected for the rest of your life because…well… that’s life!

And learning how to rumble with curveballs without tossing your own self-care to the wind is a skill missing from the toolbox of an awful lot of women…not because they lack capability but because they have been practicing the all-or-nothing mentality for so long.

I rumble HARD with social media.

I rumble HARD with social media.

If I am being honest, I rumble HARD with social media… as a woman, a business owner (especially one in the field of women’s health), and, most certainly, as a mother.

It has its perks. It is a really convenient way to share information and ideas, to connect with people near and far, and to put your art (whatever form that takes) out into the world.

It is also problematic in… so..many…ways.

To lead yourself well, you need to need to know yourself well. 

To lead yourself well, you need to need to know yourself well. 

While mentors, teachers, and coaches can give you some directions in VERY specific areas of your life to develop skills, navigate roadblocks and create certain results –  

YOU are responsible for taking into consideration how that advice fits into the wholeness of your life. 

And the honest to God truth is… 

What other BS beliefs have you heard about health?

What other BS beliefs have you heard about health?

Health is not a look: assuming you understand someone’s health story by looking at their body, is a lot like assuming you understand their life by looking at their social media feed.

Health is not…

There is a very wide gap between knowing and doing.

There is a very wide gap between knowing and doing.

I have yet to meet a woman who didn’t know that drinking water, movement, whole food, sleep, connection, and a growth mindset were good for the human body but I have met TONS of women who struggle to do things on the regular.

Many of these same women then convince themselves they need complicated measures because nothing is working. GAH!

Self-trust is a VERY BIG DEAL when it comes to your health.

Self-trust is a VERY BIG DEAL when it comes to your health. In fact, I would argue that it is a more powerful superfood than most actual “superfoods” being sold to you. ⁣

The diet industry doesn’t promote self-trust. In fact, they bank on you lacking it… quite literally.

What to do when self-doubt creeps in…

It is bound to happen.

You are going to have a day, probably many, along the path to improved health where self-doubt creeps in and you convince yourself that you are NOT making progress.

In those moments…

Learning to fail well is definitely a skill worth learning. While I can help a woman minimize failure and rebound more quickly I cannot protect her from failure entirely.

Not all actions are created equal.

Not all actions are created equal.

Of course, taking action matters if you want to improve your health or ANY area of your life. And, not all actions are created equal.

It’s Monday!

I modified the “code of conduct” I give my students for you to read through with the hopes that it will help you roll into your week with a bit more grace.

Women, we deserve better.

Women, we deserve better.

For far too long women’s health has been largely sold through the very narrow lens that health is a look, a data point, an athletic achievement.

Worse yet…

No amount of kale is going to increase your sense of self-worth.

No amount of kale is going to increase your sense of self-worth.

Your worth is already baked into your humanity. (read that again, then maybe 10 more times to sear it on your brain)

The diet industry, which makes bank off your insecurities, would like you to believe otherwise.

It sells you on the idea that you can and should…

This simple shift is a #GAMECHANGER.

This simple shift is a #GAMECHANGER.

Self-discipline is an extension of self-love.

Yet, so many women are living their lives as if you can practice one without the other.

I have advocated for the practice of BOTH, which is why my business is Grace AND Grit, not Grace OR Grit…

You know the next right step.

You know the next right step.

In all the years I have coached, you know what I have NEVER found to be true?

That someone does not know the next right step to take to move the needle of progress in their life.

They always know.

You do too.

And…

THIS will influence EVERY SINGLE relationship you have.

THIS will influence EVERY SINGLE relationship you have.

To advocate is to take a public stand for something.

And in the work that I do, helping women to put their healthiest years ahead of them by stepping into their most authentic and fully express selves… learning to advocate for yourself is a REALLY big deal.

What you believe about yourself and your possibility will influence EVERY SINGLE relationship you have…

Permission to be all in.

Permission to be all in.

Being a working mom has been one of the biggest rumbles of my life.

I love my kid AND I love my work.

There was a time when I was always either stressed about work when I was spending time with my kid or stressed about not being with my kid when I was working.

Are you governed by self-doubt or self-trust?

Are you governed by self-doubt or self-trust?

Considering the effort I put into caring for my health, I think my health should be perfect, BUT…

Last year I was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder that I have probably had for years (my bone marrow is an overachiever in platelet production).

Considering how much time, energy, and heart I have put into the Grace & Grit podcast over the past 6 years, I’d like to have…

What to do when summer shakes up your routine!

What to do when summer shakes up your routine!

There is so much opportunity to shake up routine in the summer.

• BBQ’s
• Camping Trips
• Lake Days
• Travel

And I see one of two patterns emerge with my clients this time of year…

It doesn’t matter why you think you can’t. You absolutely CAN.

This is not just health coaching—it’s a personalized road map to the prime of your life. It’s coaching that will make today feel like the best days of your life are ahead of you, no matter where you’re at right now.
