Overstressed and overeating: How to solve the two biggest health and fitness problems most women face.
Feeling overworked and under-appreciated? Having trouble staying consistent with nutrition and fitness because of life’s demands? Wondering if you’ll ever be able to find time to achieve the body and health you want? This article is for you.
Putting others’ needs before your own? For lots of women, it’s an everyday reality.
Whether you’re a high-powered professional, a mother, a caregiver, a partner, a worker, a daughter, a friend, or all of the above and more….
….if you’re a woman, you’re asked to do a lot.
Many of us spend our days putting out fires, handling to-do lists, wiping little noses, meeting deadlines and making sure other people are fed, safe, and happy.
Here’s the thing…
I’ve gotten to know a lot of women through my Nutrition Coaching programs. And I’ve learned that most of them enjoy — and thrive on — that impossible list above.
They like rising to the challenge of supporting others and getting stuff done.
That is until their energy runs out and they realize they don’t have any leftover for themselves.
And slowly, after months or years of putting other people first, multi-tasking, and wrangling that epic to-do list:
They’re drained mentally and emotionally.
The time they used to invest in self-care has disappeared.
The clothes that used to fit… feel a little (or a lot) tighter.
The sugar and junk food cravings seem much stronger.
The exercise classes/workouts are postponed, then canceled.
The bathroom mirror and scale are avoided. (Along with the bed.)
The stress of yo-yo dieting starts up again.
With putting so much time into caring for others, and juggling all their responsibilities, women end up neglecting themselves.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
You can feel healthy, fit, and good in your own skin.
You can regain control of your schedule and your body.
You can overcome emotional eating and cravings.
You can show love and appreciation to others while still taking care of yourself.
Today I want to talk to you about:
1- The two biggest obstacles in many women’s ways when it comes to getting healthy and staying in shape.
2- How to overcome these obstacles to get the body — and life — you want.
Oh sure, you think.
Maybe some women might find this helpful.
But my life is different. My body is different.
