The way you have been taught to diet and manage your health for decades is wrong.
You have been told to eat foods you don’t like, to follow restrictive meal plans that don’t fit your lifestyle and that leave you hungry, to deny yourself food that you love and end up obsessing about it until you give in and go overboard and feel guilt and shame.
You have been told to do exercise you don’t enjoy for much longer than you care to do it while telling yourself to just “suck it up, buttercup” because this is what it takes to reach your goals.
You have been tricked into to hating your body and hating yourself. And so you pay penance by way of food and exercise so that maybe – if you deny, deprive, and suffer through the work – maybe one day you can love who you are and how you look and feel.
But wait – hold up. Does being hungry really make you good and enjoying food make you bad? Does exercising to exhaustion make you good and enjoying a restful afternoon make you bad?
This has got to stop.
Love Yourself Healthy is a mind-set focused on health improvement and building healthy habits in a balanced, non-restrictive way.
Coach Alexia created this approach when she saw the need for an alternative to how we have been going about getting healthy – we have been convinced that we need to “hate ourselves healthy.” She’s got a better idea. Let’s try “loving ourselves healthy.”
I help women who struggle with their weight and health shut down their inner critic and achieve their health goals, so they can love woman they see in the mirror.
Love yourself healthy starts with a small-steps approach to food and exercise. This will rebuild your confidence and you will show you that you can keep meaningful promises to yourself.
At the same time, you start to challenge your internal dialogue. As you shut down that mean-girl voice in your head, you can begin to see your unique and amazing value.
What is really amazing is that when you start to feed your body and couple that with movement and positive self-talk, you can actually turn up your metabolism, have more energy, and lose weight while eating more food!
Coach Alexia is passionate in her belief that women have got to change the negative way that we talk to ourselves and think about ourselves. We have to change what we see when we look in the mirror and begin to recognize our bodies our minds and ourselves as the strong, capable, amazing beings that we are.
We embrace body confidence and believe that you are 100% deserving of loving yourself as you are right now.
When we start first with love and gratitude for ourselves then the actual steps that we take with food, exercise, sleep, and self-care become so much easier.
We stop defining our success using external yardsticks – like a number on the scale or a size of clothing – and we instead define our success based on our personal integrity, in our creativity and flexibility to handle the curve-balls life keeps throwing at us, and our ability to set and reach realistic goals as we travel our unique path to better health and wellness.
We start to see and appreciate the small wins that we have every day. This is what leads us towards being able to love ourselves into a healthier lifestyle.
Love Yourself Healthy is N.E.W. Motivation Coaching’s signature plan. It is the foundation upon which we build all of our programs, online plans, and one-on-one coaching.
We are sick and tired women beating themselves up to reach unrealistic ideals and so we have designed our programs to lead women towards love and self-empowerment and on shutting down the inner critic.
We focus on celebrating women for who they are and what they can do regardless of the size or shape of their bodies. You will find amazing things happen when begin to Love Yourself Healthy.
|Hi! I’m Coach Alexia. Creator of the Love Yourself Healthy Plan. |
The first time I ever truly loved my body was after surviving a heart attack at age 37. Yes, I spent 37 years hating my body and beating myself up for how I looked. I’ve battled my weight too and this picture is me at my heaviest and lightest. It took my body carrying me through a brush with my mortality to make me wake up to how amazing my body is – it is not the “ideal” body, sure – but it is amazing, strong, beautiful, and all mine.
I am a Registered Dietitian and American Council on Exercise Certified Health Coach and Personal Trainer. And I am here, now, ready to help you win the internal battle with that negative, bullying voice in your heads and give you no BS, real-life solutions that work so you can embrace the amazing bad-ass woman that you are.
