There just one problem:
At this point, some people become stuck and have trouble moving the needle forward toward their goals. For others, they are able to successfully reach that goal, but cannot sustain those behaviors. Either way many become frustrated with the lack of results as they desperately try to figure out what they can do that will work, once and for all.
If this is you, you’re not alone. Everyday I encounter people who feel this way; people who are desperate for answers as to why they are not reaching their goals and are looking for a framework that will finally work.
are you feeling like you are doing ‘all the things’ but…
- have trouble with weight management
- are tired and irritable all the time
- experience consistent gastrointestinal distress
- feel as though your metabolism is working against you
- are overwhelmed with trying to following the latest trends and expert advice
- realize you need dedicated expert support and direction to achieve your goals
Which Wellness Type Are You?
#1 The trend following dieter
Are you one of those people who follows every trend diet in hopes that you may finally reach your weight goal? One day you’re trying intermittent fasting and the next you’re trying Keto because you’ve seen other people are having massive success on that diet.
The trend following dieter has a difficult time achieving lifestyle balance because they are looking for the quick fix. Instead of honoring their internal hunger and fullness cues and intuitively consuming meals, they try to stick to a method of eating that is not sustainable in the long-term.
#2 The two a day exerciser
Or maybe you are one of those people who gets up early every day to be the first one to arrive for their 6am group fitness class, sweating it out before work. And for good measure, after work you get in another workout at-home in hopes of finally getting the body you want.
The two a day exerciser is typically putting in a lot of work, but is seeing minimal results. What this person doesn’t realize is that working out twice a day can mess with your hormones, derailing their success. Not only that, they are also forgetting the importance of recovery days in supporting hormonal balance. Well, not surprising, this person is also missing achieving lifestyle balance because they are so focused on only one aspect of wellness – fitness.
#3 The overstressed meditator
On the other hand you could be someone who takes time to meditate every morning. Namaste and all, right? Well, not quite. You leave your home and head out on your commute and start your work day only to be easily frustrated and inconvenienced by everything and everyone that crosses your path. From project deadlines and meetings at work, to school projects and activities for the children, to time with your significant other or friends, you are finding it difficult to find the energy to make it through the day without becoming overwhelmed or frustrated.
The overstressed meditator takes the time to implement self-care into their daily life, but fails to implement those practices into their daily life. Navigating daily life brings about stress and anxiety which the overstressed meditator finds difficult to manage. And even with habitual self-care practices they still miss achieving lifestyle balance because you haven’t been able to successfully find alignment in all areas of your life.
#4 The tech time waster
Ah yes… the problem of too many apps! Maybe you’re the type of person has an app for each wellness goal they have: an app that provides you with recipes and meal plans and helps you track your macros; a separate app that provides you with thousands of workouts and helps you track your physical activity; another app that leads you through guided meditation and other forms of self-care.
The tech time waster is convinced that having several apps is the key to finally managing their weight, eating well and reducing stress. The tech time waster is blocked from achieving lifestyle balance because their success is hinged on the data captured by these apps. When this person misses the goals set on these apps, they feel defeated and tend to give up.
okay, I know… take a deep breath
You’ve just realized a very important fact about yourself.
What can you do, you ask?
First of all, you don’t have to go on this journey alone. I am here to provide you with the framework and tools you’ll need to build a solid foundation of healthy lifestyle behaviors.
And hey… no one said this work is going to be easy. At times you may feel like you want to give up. But I want to impress upon you to let go of FEAR, let go of SELF-DOUBT, let go of JUDGEMENT and finally BELIEVE in your ability to succeed! You, my friend, are worthy of finding balance!
Meet Your Coach
stephanie nicole carter, ms, rdn
I’m a board certified registered dietitian with a masters degree in nutritional science. I also am a fitness professional who creates dynamic and challenging programming for group fitness and personal training clients.
My approach to wellness coaching includes providing counseling and action planning focusing on functional nutrition, a cornerstone of functional medicine, exercise science and mental health. This personalized approach optimizes your health by looking at all aspects of your life, addressing factors such as nutrition, movement, stress, sleep, and relationships.
The reason I created this foundation program is because I myself have tried ‘all the things’ to achieve the body and life I wanted. My extreme dieting led to a profound years-long eating disorder that I paired with over exercising. To be honest, I was no more closer to reaching my goal then I was before beginning down the path. Not only that, I was constantly stressed out wondering why my happiness was tied to my body image.
It dawned on me that in order to reach my goals, I had to develop a healthy relationship with food, exercise to feel good and build longevity into my life, and manage my stress and anxiety. The balance of these things really shifted my mental energy and am able to this day manage my weight, without dieting or looking at scale daily.
I’ve been able to leverage my education and personal experiences to provide a practical foundation for my clients, that they have been able to successfully implement into their daily lives. I am passionate about supporting long term healthy lifestyle behaviors, helping my clients to live your best life ever! My philosophy is simple: #LiveNourished.
You too can finally let go of doing ‘all the things’ and find lifestyle balance. It’s easier than you think.
