For as long as I can remember, I loved being able to understand and master things. Mastering my body was my first passion. Unfortunately, I believed the only way to mold and shape my body was through EXTREME nutrition and training. And it was bleeding into every aspect of my life.
It wasn’t until I found myself picking apart every “flaw”, binging my face off and hiding away for days that I realized this wasn’t what I wanted. I had an eating disorder. This was my initial wake up call.
How can I fight yo-yo dieting, body image issues and the extreme mindset in a healthy way?
After successfully achieving a few milestones I was still fighting confidence issues and hired a coach in preparation for a National Level Figure Competition. The coach was extreme and the internal battle began. I finished, placed 8th, but was very disappointed in myself. I knew I veered off the healthy goals I vowed to commit to.
Never again. This was the initial seed for what is now the Lady Leader Lifestyle; a mind, body, and nutrition method for understanding, enjoying and leading a healthy lifestyle without the extremes (and a crap that comes with it). All in an effort to enhance the life of your dreams, not hinder it.
