My inbox is packed full of emails from many of you. Unfortunately, many are left unanswered by me because I am unable to spend the amount of time answering them and honestly, most require way more than a one paragraph response from me.
I try and address some of your questions either via blog posts or a Facebook status but there’s no question that I leave many unanswered.
Here is a small sampling of the type of questions I get so you see what I mean:
“I’m just getting through post-partum and I’ve got some weight to loose. For me, it’s more than I’ve ever weighed and I’m anxious to be fit again (it’s been awhile since I’ve been pregnant most of the past 10 years). My problem? I don’t know where to start! Fad diets from points to protein powder to super foods, and contradicting “I’m wondering if I missed discussions on losing weight while on menopause. I’m exercise 3 days a week and watching what I eat…Im not gaining any weight, however I’m having trouble losing just more 5 lbs.”articles on the “best ab/arm/leg/whatever workout” or cardio vs weight training, combined with being a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom with little extra time leaves me sitting in my chair.”
“Hey! I am 33 and a mother of 3 and a wife to a fabulous husband. I am 5’4 and 110 lbs. I am not concerned with weight loss but looking at a healthy lifestyle of exercise. I am a past runner- holic where it consumed me. I turned to it not to God….I am at a point in my life where I focus on God, my husband and ten my children. Everything else takes priority under that. I love my job of teaching special education. My question is: I want to incorporate exercise to take care of God’s temple and set a good example to my children. What is “enough ” with out going overboard?”
“I am getting bored with following workout DVDs at home, although simple to pop in, it is getting monotonous. And expensive to buy additional also. What is a basic workout schedule supposed to look like during a week? I figured I can use your workout suggestions and others to mix things up if I know a basic outline. Should there be at least one day arms, one day legs, abs, a few cardio…? “
” I am wondering if there is any truth to Trim Healthy Mama’s message of eating certain foods with only other certain foods and not combining certain things – I can’t be more specific than that, I haven’t read the book but I know it has something to do with when you eat your fats or proteins, etc. do you have thoughts on this or a recommended reading resource?”
These samplings are just the TIP of the iceberg! I have a folder of emails upon emails that I save in hopes to answer them, but the truth is, it’s not as simple for me to do so. Enter coaching calls.
∴WHY coaching calls?∴
I’ve mentioned before that my real-life interactions with people are what truly fuel me online. I have many friends and students who ask me the same questions you do. I am able to quickly ask some questions, get some feedback the next time I see them, and maybe text them once or twice during the time they are trying out new things.
I can’t do that with you.
People often tell me that they feel so much better after talking with me. Why? Not because I gave them any sort of plan or fixed their life, but because I was a sounding board. I was able to take those gray areas and add some clarity. I don’t say this to toot my horn, but it’s what God does when he mixes a passion for people, fitness, and learning, together! I love being able to do this for folks! Coaching calls are the best way I can extend this to you!
I do not believe in “one-size fits all” approaches to health. I do not like prescribing specific caloric, exercise, or wellness plans without first talking to someone. Why? Because we each are SO DIFFERENT! There are basic guidelines and tips that I can offer everyone that would benefit them at a foundational level, but truly, to have a sustained healthy lifestyle, it requires more than that.
My approach will always consider your spiritual wellness, your marriage, your family, your finances, & your friendships. I believe true health is when those areas are all balanced, so you can expect questions about those areas.
I am in it for your long-term success. I want YOU to become the detective to your health. and I want to help you through that. No spoon-feeding here!
