I personally have struggled with my weight and emotional ties to food for a long time. After years of struggles, yo-yo dieting, low self-esteem, and running myself into the ground mentally and physically I decided to invest in myself. I decided it was time for a change. I needed help and accountability from someone who would understand me… I found the help I was looking for plus so much more. I discovered there was a community of women out there just like me! So, in January of this year, I became an online health and fitness coach to pay it forward. What does that mean exactly? That means that I help others reach their health and fitness goals. It means I guide, I provide encouragement, an extra push. I help women find the best workout solution for their body, goals, and abilities. If you’re interested in more information you can contact me here. I’d love to help you achieve your dreams!
Late into our oldest daughter’s 4th-grade year I accepted Christ as my savior and felt the strong pull to homeschool. She was having severe problems with her reading comprehension, fighting bullies, and struggling with who she was. Our second oldest daughter was in 2nd grade at the time and was doing relatively well with the exception of her being deemed a distraction to her classmates. She preferred to stand while doing school work, and it was agonizing for her to write. She was later diagnosed with dysgraphia, and as the OT stated, “ADHD tendencies.” We rejected the ADHD diagnoses and once she was home we noticed that she could focus, but in her own way. Seeing the freedom our girls now enjoy with each other and their learning brings a smile to our faces. Beginning to homeschool was a transition for all of us, but it really is true, you CAN do all things through Christ who strengthens us (Philippians 4:13).
