A Marvelous Weekend #mimm

Hey friends! Hope the weekend was a marvelous one for you! Mine was pretty great (and hot) but pretty awesome!

I’m so thankful for my family, first off! The fact that we’re so close, makes everything better! One of the most enjoyable things is laughing with them. Laughing and making jokes helps me remember to be joyful in the situation I’m in right now.

Saw this on pinterest this morning…

Audrey Hepburn - LAUGH <3

Audrey Hepburn seriously has some of my favorite quotes, but this one, so true!

Alright, let’s get this started! And big thank you to Katie from Healthy Diva Eats, for hosting!

Post-long run dinner! Sauteed beets, beans, rotisserie chicken, and squash from our garden. Half way through cooking the squash, we decided we didn’t want just sauteed squash, but fried squash. It happens!

Health Coaching and New Workout

Hey guys! A couple days ago, I was writing up a HIIT workout that really worked on the heart rate and muscles and wanted to put it on the blog. So here we go! One of my top workouts and its amazing! Definitely give it a try and tell me what you think!

HIIT Workout from In Shape Cupcake

 


But moving on, I wanted to talk about Health Coaching.

I decided two years ago what I wanted to do with my life. It wasn’t making millions of dollars or working for a huge company. I wanted to be a health coach. People look at me funny every time when I tell them that. Why? Because there used to not be health coaches. It wasn’t a very popular career until The Institute for Integrative Nutrition made it so. And I thank Joshua, the founder, and all the teachers for making it possible for me to live my dream.

Health coaching, what is it? Simply put, a HC is a guide that helps you achieve your health, fitness, nutrition, and life goals. It takes time, but when you’ve got someone that has your back, you meet those goals then and now instead of 5 years later after you failed and kept giving up. With a health coach, they’re always there for you. Listening, talking, giving advice, even grocery shopping with you. Its pretty darn amazing and I do want to say, that 3 years ago, I wish I had had a health coach. I believe in health coaches. They are amazing and the work I’ve seen them do to help people live better lives, is just amazing.

I’m just so pumped to tell you that I’m health coaching as we speak! The great thing about it, is that I can coach you online, in person, over the phone, whatever suits you best. If you’re ever interested or know someone who could benefit, please let me know!

Thanks for reading! I hope all of you have just a completely fantastic day!
