Brook and I go way back. Our paths first crossed in the halls of middle school where we were childhood friends and remained so through our high school years. Life happened and we lost touch after our graduation in 1988. Fast forward almost 25 years later and we have reconnected through cyberspace thanks to Facebook! What is completely awesome is that we reconnected through health and fitness.
I cringe when I hear the way most women, including many of my clients, talk about themselves. My heart breaks when my clients send me baseline photos and progress photos, not because of the way they look, but because of the words they use to describe themselves. The subject line or email will include words like ‘gross’, ‘horrifying’, ‘disgusting’ and other negative and hurtful words you can think of. Some even take it a step further and include an apology to me for ‘having to look’ at their photos. The truth is that I get it. I was once one of you.
When making positive changes to your daily habits, the ONLY way you will be successful for the long term is to view the changes as long term.
It seems like this should go without saying but unfortunately it cannot. It needs to be said...and often; just like a habit.
In my over 10 years of coaching experience, the women who have been successful in adopting a healthy lifestyle are the ones who treat it as such. They have learned and created a healthy balance with nutrition, exercise, time management, family time, 'me time', and most importantly they've accepted that a healthy plan has no end date.
It was Liza’s personal journey of getting fit after having two children that led her to switch careers and become an internationally recognized Certified Fitness, Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach to women across the country. She understands first-hand the struggles and challenges that women, especially moms, face in the quest of a healthier way of life. Her drive and discipline propelled her over “life’s” obstacles and she has accomplished more than she ever thought possible.
