I struggled my whole life trying to stick to a diet. Thinking it was my fault. Feeling defeated.
And It wasn’t until I fixed my relationship with food and my body, that it all started to change.
Hi, I’m Sabrina. Woman’s Undiet Coach, Certified Holistic Nutritionist, and specialist in Behavior Change.
I also have a REAL life where I am Mom of 2 daughters, wife to the most amazing man in the world, coffee lover, book worm, and of course ex-professional dieter turned UNdieter.
Once upon a time, I looked high and low for the perfect diet that would A. work and B. make all of my life’s problems disappear. I thought that the answer to life equaled to weighing 125 lbs., being a size 2 and having blonde hair. I have the faux blonde hair now but what I learned about the other two, was that it made me more miserable than happy. Living life in fear of gaining it all back was a nightmare and not addressing my root problems led me back to starting over while mourning the loss of my weight gain. Sound familiar?
I eventually realized that, “Hey, this isn’t working Sabrina. We need to try something else.” And then entered going back to school (prior psycology major) to figure my shit out. But it wasn’t just one thing I learned that worked or that got me to where I am today. It was each credential leading to the next that turned on the AH HA moment in my brain. I realized that I coulnd’t outrun a fork and that binging, over eating, restricing food and depriving myself ALL had a connection to how I thought about my body and the relationship I had with food.
Once that connection was made, I was able to take a different appraoch to my health. I prioritized myself instead of putting myself on the back burner and loading myself up with chronic stress that tanked my immune system along with many other systems in my body. My relationships started to improve, my mindset was less shitty, and I was feeling more calm and connected. Our health, and when I say health I don’t mean a size, weight on the scale, or a certain BMI.
I mean how we feel living inside our bodies. Do we have energy? Or do we tank at 2pm and need coffee or a candy bar. I mean how are our blood pannels? Are our ranges good or do they need some improvement? Are we eating all food groups or trying to still restrict because we haven’t cleaned up our shitty thoughts. It all matters. It’s all health, it’s just holistic health approach and that is what creates you living your life fully, versus living it just to get through it.
I don’t know about you, but I want more for my life. I want to live my life experiencing the fullness of it. I want to have energy to get through my day, play with my kids, make dinner (yes, actually cook even on busy days), have sex with my husband, invest in my friendships, and be fully present in MY OWN life. Not a stand in for my own life.
But the fact of the matter is, you can keep doing what you are doing, just like I could have OR you can decide that enough is enough and make a decision to change it. And that decision will always be yours to make and carry. It can be no one elses. So, what do you want to do with it? What do you really want out of life and for your life? How can you experience life fully not half assed?
Now, I can keep going on and on here about my struggles, and I am assure you, I have had many and keep wasting your time reading about it or you can decide to put yourself first and decide to figure your shit out like I did. Everyone has shit they struggle with and experience that isn’t what they would chose for their life but it’s what you do with it that matters.
Do you want to keep reading this or schedule a discovery session and move toward change? If so, click the calendly link in the bottom of the right hand corner. You can pick a day and time that works for you, then on that day and during that time we get to chat and see how I can help you. Or, do you want to stay stuck and spinning in confusion about not knowing what to do? I pray you choose yourself and start trying to rebuild your relationship with yourself and food.
Diet’s have taught us that food is hard. That whole foods are tasteless and that bars, shakes, and pills are the answer. They also have taught us that quick fixes are real but I assure you they aren’t. And if they were, they would only last for so long (so many diets I ever did) because patterns always repeat themself and it’s time to get down to the root of it all.
And that root is going to be fixing your shitty mindset about yourself, food and creating a holistic health approach for life. If I can do it, anyone can. I hope to connect with you soon.
