I used to be so awful to myself. I was judgmental, unaccepting, insecure and self-sabotaging. I found food and my body image to be incredibly stressful and because of this, I didn't take proper care of myself. However, today, I am truly happy with who I am.
I began to really be honest with myself. I made a list of the aspects of my life that weren't serving me and I took measures to cut them out. For example, ice cream is supposed to be a treat and bring you joy but gave me a stomach ache. Why on earth was I still eating it? And so my transformation began. I started to take accountability for my health and began practices to show myself the respect I deserved.
I modified my diet. I shifted my mindset. I began to listen to my body and gave it the nutrients it was starving for. The greatest change of all was adopting a plant based diet. From there, everything else seemed to fall into place.
I want Lux Lake to be a place of solace and inspiration for those of you who struggle with similar issues. I became a Certified Health Coach because I believe it is my purpose to help others be their best selves.
I am a graduate of the the University of Michigan and the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. Visit the Coaching section to learn more about Health Coaching and to schedule a free health consultation!
