Hi, I’m Sabrina.  Normal human being. Wife, mom of 2 amazing little girls, dog and cat owner, home cook, house cleaner and kisser of boo boo’s. But that’s not all…I am also a certified holistic nutritionist and personal trainer that specilazes in behavior change and corrective exercise. And will all that goodness, I get to do my passion!!!

And that passion, is teaching women who have been unsuccessful at dieting create a healthy relationship with food and their bodies so that they can get the results they want.

I get to teach women how to let go of the dieting behaviors that just never served them in the way they were told they would AND then show them how to really do it, BUT do it for life! I am ALL about sustainability and maintainabiliy. No 30, 60 or 90 day programs here. No WAY!

I teach you how your body works so that you can know how to eat while living a REAL life plus discovering how to find exercise you actually love ALL while understanding (and learning) how managing your mind is the most important piece of the sustainability puzzle. Because…if you have dieted as long as I did, then you know that voice in your head really well…that one that can talk your out of doing anything you really want to do. 😉 Well, we tackle that too!

I know, it’s pretty damn awesome. I LOVE (yes, with caps) what I do. 🙂  But I wasn’t always this woman you see today. I spent SO much of my life wasting it on obessesing over learning every fad diet that came out, on food and on a stupid number on the scale that kept going up and down. Obesessing over a dumb jean size, and whether I had thigh gap or not.  I eventually came to the conclusion that I am and so are you… UNIQUE!

That I am NOT to be shoved in a box dieting and eating food that I really hate while trying SO hard to do what everyone else who is “skinny” does and feeling completely miserable all day long.  NO! Me and you…we have so much potential to live and that doesn’t include feeling tired from the latest diet fad and spending countless times cleaning out our pantries to start YET again, another latest and greatest diet.

Yes, you have goals, so do I, but that doesn’t mean we have to wait for the scale to read 115 (or whatever) BEFORE we can begin to live our best life. Heck no! Life is too short to not enjoy it. And why not enjoy it in the body you have been given. Even if you feel it is not perfect like the cover of whatever magazine. You are still of highest value and highly worthy of love and ALL the things life has to offer. PERIOD! No but’s. 

You deserve to be loved and love…just as you are. You have a special way of living your life, parenting your children (or not if you don’t have them 😉 ), the work you do, being in a relationship and taking care of yourself and in a way that is different from everyone else. You are not airbrushed. You are not fake. You are amazing.

So WHY do we keep trying to diet and starve ourselves (physically and mentally) into unrealistic expectations, over exercise ourselves when we hate every minute of it. Why do we try so hard to be someone else? BECAUSE we have been told that if we are a certain size or look a certain way, than we will be happy. We will be loved and desired. But are you?

I wasn’t. I was miserable with a capitol M! I can’t get back the years that I spent dieting, obessing over every single calorie, exercising A LOT even when I was almost passing out AND failing over and over and over again and that is ok. I learnt a lot from the 15 years of my life I struggled with food. Not knowing what to eat or how to eat or what food really was. I even struggled with being present in my relationships because I was so worried about how my body looked and about eating food around others because I thought I would be judged. And I never was happy EVER with what i saw in the mirror. Not even when I was a size 2.

I had zero confidence and I always hid myself in layers of clothing so people would’nt see all my fat. And of course, every morning (sometimes more) I would obsess over the scale…it was horrible.

I wasn’t really living my life, I was tolerating my life and for some reason, I was waiting for the scale to be a certain number before I would allow myself to do anything I wanted to do. Like live my life. I thought I wasn’t good enough. I thought I wasn’t worthy of happiness or the things I really wanted ALL because of how I looked and the damn size of my stupid jeans. Dieting created a wonderful binge eating problem for me but thought it was “normal” because that is what living life on a diet is like. You go on it, lose weight, gain weight hate the food, and have cheat meals and days where you eat ALL the things but that isn’t what life should really be like.

That isn’t what life is like for me now. And if that is you…it can be different for you too. You CAN feel normal around food. I promise!

I really do know what it feels like to be in your shoes. It is beyond frustrating, and it can feel so hopeless and lonely. But you aren’t. Not even close. I never thought that I would be able to live my life without obsessing over my weight or what I saw in the mirror EVERYDAY or that I could feel genuinely happy and at peace with myself AS I AM.

I thought I had to be at a certain weight first. But to tell you the truth, especially after so much struggle that I faced.  I NEVER thought I would be able to feel in control over my eating (like OMGosh, NEVER) and totally NOT eating a whole bag of chips (or being tempted even). Never thought I would say no to dessert (and really meaning it) nor, make it through the holidays without gaining a ton of weight and eating ALL the things.

I always thought I would have to live my life hiding my binges and being chained to my fitness pal versus enjoying conversations. I always thought this struggle was just “my luck of the draw” in this life and that I had to just get used to it. That I had to settle for how it was. F THAT!

I promise you, you really can create a better relationship with your body. The kind of relationship where you want to connect with yourself, care for yourself INSTEAD of beating yourself up all because you don’t like what you see in the mirror. You CAN create a healthy relationship with food instead of feeling like food is in control and you are just along for the ride. And of course, you CAN feel empowered versus out of control and feeling like you are at the affect of everything around you.

It’s all possible.

You CAN finally enjoy being YOU and love the mirror image you see ALL without the conditions of a certain size or weight on the scale to create that feeling for you. That is FREEDOM my friend!

And at the end of the day, why do you want to diet anyway? Do you love deprivation? Feeling hungry? Battling with yourself daily? Why do you want to lose the weight? What do you gain from that weight being gone that you can’t have right now today? Why do you feel it is soooo neccesary to look a certain way? These are questions you need to ask yourself. What have you been fighting so hard for?

Does it help you to be a better person? Better at your job? Better wife, mom or daughter? Does it end your inner struggle?

No. The answer is no. Because even if you got to that size in your head today, you would still be in the same place. If you don’t fix the root issue than you will keep ending right back here. So why not just fix that instead. This is where women fail. Why they keep dieting and that is what holds you back my friend.

So what are you waiting for? Do what you have never done before and come work one on one with me. I really am awesome 😉 lol  BUT not because of my struggle, or my story, or my credentials, OR even becasue of the success stories of others BUT because I am a real person, very passionate about helping transform the lives of women struggling AND because I KNOW you are capable.

You just need to trust in your capability too.
