Here is the deal: after so many years of following food rules, giving into the all/nothing mindset, being trapped in a yoyo cycle with nutrition and fighting remnants of an eating disorder, I am SO thankful to be able to say I am FREE.
Yes, I still fuel my body with delicious and nutritious food because it makes me MORE effective as a wife, mom, friend, and coach and help me feel my best. BUT, I no longer have this perfectionist hat on my head (which usually just brings out the rebel in me) tracking my every move. I am enjoying TREATS and fun foods again without guilt or shame or regret. I have spent far too much time thinking about what to eat and when to eat it that to finally be free and just listen to my body has been a gift I MUST share.
Enter our FREE4FALL grace camp! Not only are we going to go on a food freedom journey together, but the heart of the group is to also beat the mental rut that kicks in come winter time; seasonal depression and even anxiety. I have found the best way to beat the rut is to develop healthy + holy habits NOW.
FREE4FALL has 4 elements:
1. 2B Mindset - Food freedom nutrition course that will teach you how to listen to YOUR body and learn what works for it through education + tracking. No calorie counting, measuring, deprivation, or food rules. Exercise is extra credit. The goal is to conquer emotional eating, mindless snacking, yoyo cycling, and get rid of the food police ;) See more info on the 2B Mindset HERE!
2. Beat anxiety / depression. We will be reading the book Anxious For Nothing by Max Lucado and camping out in Philippians chapter 4 (hence the 4 in Free4fall!. This book has taught me so much about my own struggles with anxiety and how to CLING TO CHRIST in the storm. While physical health is great, it is meaningless without an internal + SOUL transformation.
3. Community + Accountability. Simple: we are better together. You will be a part of a community of women all going through the same self paced nutrition course as you. We will learn together, pray together, and find freedom together.
4. Me as your personal coach. You will then have me as your coach for life and you can be sure that will be doing one on one check ins with you weekly! While groups are powerful, I also believe the one on ones go a long way.
Are you ready for the details? I am only taking 15 women on this journey with me. I am not here to push you...I am simply here to pull you alongside me if this journey is relevant to your season. I am already lifting you up!
