Meet Miss Holistic Health Practitioner

NutritionalEquilibriumEvent2

Hello everyone!

It’s me! 🙂

This was my table at a wellness fair at a local wellness center, All Natural Training and Wellness in Salisbury, Mass.

((Where I will soon be teaching group fitness classes! Are you local? Would you be interested in trying a free class?!))

I had so much fun promoting my holistic health coaching and pure essential oils!

So, what exactly does a holistic health coach do? Well…

You can watch this video for a quick answer:

Coaching involves a conversation where one person listens and then advises another person on any subject matter. Over time this term has been used for coaches in education, athletics and music.

As a holistic health coach, I encourage individuals to explore their inner strength and wisdom, improving their confidence and making changes and improvements from within.

 The health coaching model is embedded in the fields of psychology, social work, nursing, eastern philosophy, holistic health and wellness management.

A wellness vision is a creative statement by the client that reveals his/her highest potential and can include nutritional, physical, emotional, social, spiritual and financial realms of their life. A new life vision empowers one to see new possibilities along with a specific and clear direction, which can be manifested through inner creativity, wisdom and power. It allows one to activate their imagination and then think, feel, speak and ultimately see the manifestation of their unified highest potential. A wellness vision is a tool a health coach uses to help the client move to new levels of wellbeing by connecting the client to their own truth and wisdom that is held within.

  The manifestation of a wellness vision is done through the process of goal setting. Goal setting is a collaborative behavior change technique used between the coach and the client. During the motivational interviewing process, after strengths, values and desires are determined and the client’s vision is set in place, specific goals are set so the client is able to move in the direction of his/her newly formed desires.

In other words, we help transform your dreams into reality!

I can help you work through your frustrations and uncertainty. Through the good days, and the not so good days.

Are you living the life of your dreams? What action steps could you take to make your life reflect your desires?

If you would like to know more about me, what I do as a health coach, my programs or how you could become a heath coach, please feel free to email me! HealthCoachAB@gmail.com (or comment here!) I would be more than happy to help!

Much Love and light to you!

Running Through My Mind

Once again, I’ve let every responsibility in the world come before the good ol’ blog.

Well, I’m back! And expect to see me often.

I’ve got some exciting projects coming up and some extra special collaborations with some amazing people to bring you more inspiration to start living the life of your dreams too! 🙂

 I’m so, so close to being done with school. I’ve been focusing so hard on each task at hand to ensure that I get the most out of what I have with them right NOW. Living in the present.

Unfortunately, that’s resulted in me slacking in the exercise department too. I’ve done this or that, here and there, but no consistency. As we all know, consistency is KEY. So expect to see more fitness related content from me as well. I’ve got to walk my talk ya know! 😉

Today I was able to get out for a run. I love running. ❤ I didn’t always love running, but now it’s like my meditation time. I don’t have much time to just sit and meditate (if I do, there’s 2 rambunctious boys in the background)

Have you ever realized how much you can mentally work through during a 30 minute run?

I told myself, “run 15 minutes away, then run right back.” So I did. 🙂

 Look at the lovely view I had running along Johnsons Pond.

Then the sun finally came out.

I was able to figure out my most important goals and what I need to do to make them a reality in my life. (I do this for a living! I better be able to do it for ME)

Are you ready to run through my mind? Here’s what I thought throughout my run today:

“Ah, jeez. Why has it been so long since I’ve done this?” “What, did my shoes get heavier?”

“lalalalala”

“inhale, exhale”

“You’ve got this, go faster!” “PUSH” “That hill’s not big

“Phew, okay, slow down. I can’t breathe!”

“Hmm, I wonder what that breathless workout’s all about.. aren’t we supposed to breathe though? I need to learn more about the science of oxygen and muscles and exercise”

“Why do they honk? Really, do they get pleasure out of scaring me?”

“Man, I need to do this everyday, it hurts too much if I don’t.”

“ugh but I need to blog. And finish my website. And schedule follow ups with my clients. And cook dinner. And finish school! And become a presidential diamond with doterra so I can make millions.”

“That’s it. I can blog just like I am running right now, just DO it!”

“I can’t breathe”

“Ahhh downhill”

“Okay, I need to sit down and write out all of my goals when I get home, right after I stretch these legs out”

“What are my goals?”

“I need to find a way to get all of my knowledge out there for the world to know too”

-Second Wind-

“I want to spread my love to the world, how do I do that?”

“I need to just do that.”

“But I cant remember anything as soon as I sit in front of the computer, I go blank.”

“Then ask! People ask you things everyday, why not blog about each topic you get asked about? Yea! That’s awesome. I’m awesome.”

“I love life”

“I need to share my love (and experience) with everyone so they can feel this way too”

❤ ❤ ❤

“positivity is the root of love and life”

“Woah, we’re back already!”

Haha So who else thinks like that while running? I know I’m not alone!

So maybe I didn’t figure out exactly what I have to do, but I feel much better about it all. I feel like each piece is achievable. In fact, I feel unstoppable.

I have a LOT to do. 🙂

Stay tuned tomorrow for a post featuring my eats & drinks from my Summerlicious Glow Cleanse. xoxoxo

Much love & light to you my friends!

You will need:

For Tofu:

1 block of tofu of your choice, or Beyond Meat (my fav)

1tbsp pure maple syrup

2tsp organic tamari

dash black pepper

Instructions:

If using tofu, make sure to press as much moisture out of the tofu as possible. 🙂

Then sauté on med high-high for 2 minutes on each side. Allow a good sizzle. Then add tamari, maple, and pepper.

For Pineapple Quinoa:

1 pineapple, sliced small (I like to squish mine to get a lot of the juices flowing)

1.5cup dry quinoa (which will make about 4 cups cooked)

1 sm onion, chopped

2 tsp garlic, minced

1/2 red bell pepper, chopped

1/2 cup shiitake mushrooms, chopped

2 carrots, shredded

1 cup kale, chopped

1/4 cup nutritional yeast

1/4 cup + a splash for sauté maple syrup

1/4 cup tamari

1/4 cup coconut oil

Himalayan pink salt

Instructions:

Bring 1cup of water + 1cup vegetable stock to a boil. Rinse your quinoa thoroughly to remove bitter saponin. Add quinoa to boiling water/broth, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 12 – 15 minutes.

While quinoa cooks sauté onions, peppers, and mushrooms Until tender, 6-10 minutes.

In another frying pan, sauté the pineapple in the coconut oil until it’s warm all the way through. Then add the maple syrup, tamari, garlic and nutritional yeast to the pineapple.

When quinoa is done cooking add the kale to the quinoa and allow to wilt from the heat of the quinoa with the lid on for about 5 minutes. Now add the sautéed veggies & shredded carrots to the quinoa.

Serve topped with a generous amount of the pineapple maple sauce – And enjoy! Is this not the best ? 🙂

Thank you for taking time to read my first post! ❤
