This is why i got a phd.
i wanted to understand how to help people feel as great, as confident, and as powerful as i did once i incorporated strength training and eating well into my life.
i needed to figure out how everyone knew they should eat healthy and exercise… but most people don’t.
how is it possible that something so fantastic, is overlooked by so many?
i was a fitness enthusiast, turned nutrition coach, i knew there was more to this equation.
so, i spent nearly 5 years researching mindset and health behavior change and implementing the research into the real world.
i’m thankful that in 2020, the psychology of health coaching is beginning to be seen as something just as important as understanding nutritional science, physiology and how to program progressive overload.
due to this increased popularity and recognition:
many health coaches i come across.... also market themselves as mindset coaches. 🙂
here’s the thing:
you don’t need to be a psychologist.
you don’t need a phd.
but you do need to understand that there is a science to behavior change and shifting someone’s mindset.
like...researchers around the world are publishing studies on these concepts (myself included!)
this isn’t just “woo woo, believe in yourself” stuff.
there are evidence based strategies, tactics, and practices that require time, practice, effort, and more than a nutrition certification.
adherence, retention, and goal achievement does not come from knowing about the thermic effect of food or that metabolic stress, muscle damage, & mechanical tension lead to hypertrophy.
“everyone knows they should eat well and workout to be healthy, but most people don’t”
^^^ then please tell me why, as an aspiring coach, all you’re taught is nutrition and training? 🤦♀️
my goal is to help bring mindset and behavior change science to the health coaching world.
if you’re a coach, and you want in on this...
now is the time 🌱
the health mindset coaching certification program is now publicly open for enrollment!

Lately, people have asked or commented on the fact that i share a lot about myself 🤷🏻♀️
i had to sit with myself and think 💭 about it for a while but here is the main reason why:
until my mid 20’s, i didn’t have a mentor outside of my family & friends
i wished someone shared their expert knowledge and advice with me earlier
a lot of what i know today is because i had to seek out the answers myself through research or experience...
sometimes those answers came from google 👩💻, classes 🏫, books📚, experiences or trying and failing, many times...
i don’t think it should be that way. there are so many people in this world that can help guide, lead and share their experiences with you to help you fast track.
some people worry that contributing to your success 🏆, cheering you on👏🏽 or giving you access to information and resources will inhibit their own growth. those same people will stay stagnant for longer. they’re the same people who see things as a competition and wonder why they aren’t winning the race. and that’s their problem.
the only person you need to be in competition with is yourself.
when you give – whether it’s money 💴, advice 🗣, love 💕, support 🪑 – give with no expectations.
i have been lucky enough to have some amazing leaders in my life. they have all taught me the importance of being uplifting and motivating and learning from others too. it’s those people who built rapport and trust with me and therefore, who i strive to be like.
that’s why i share what i know.
i didn’t have a coach or mentor for far too long.
that’s why i choose to be that person for someone else today.

we often talk about mondays as a fresh start. a new week. another chance to get it right.
but don’t forget about all the other times that you’ve already gotten it right!
it’s so easy to look at everything we haven’t accomplished yet instead of looking at everything that we already have.
because if you don’t celebrate yourself at various points on your journey, are you really going to enjoy yourself along the way? 🙃
what are you celebrating about yourself today?! 👇
Mood: soaking up abundance like sun rays! ☀️
i’m so excited about this brand new month! there will be countless opportunities for so many incredible things to shake and move and happen!! plus, august is my birthday month! 🎂
this month i am committed to flowing, not forcing. i will release whatever is not for me to make room for all that is, and i will expect miracles to continue unfold. 💫
what are you looking forward to this month? claim it!!
You’ll never wake up 100% ready to go after your dreams.⠀
there isn’t going to come a time when all your fears suddenly disappear.⠀
there will always be reasons your ego tells you that it won’t work out.⠀
and the people that you think that aren’t afraid of anything, don’t exist.⠀
we all have fears and limiting beliefs. ⠀
it’s just that the people you look up to or admire, decided that those fears weren’t more important than their dreams⠀
they key is to just start. take the first step! ⠀
• apply for the job.⠀
• ask the person out.⠀
• post your services.⠀
• travel to a new place.⠀
whatever it is, just start.⠀
i had no idea how to start a boutique.⠀
no clue how to launch a coaching business.⠀
didn’t have a blueprint on how to start a mobile beverage bar!⠀
but i just started! ⠀
• i filed for a sales tax id for my boutique.⠀
• i bought the domain for my coaching business. ⠀
• we said yes to going into business with our friends on @gypsybevco.⠀
and everything else has fallen into place! ⠀
it’s not always easy but the steps will appear...and when you don’t know something google is always there for you. 🤣⠀
you get to go after what you want in life because you want to. that’s reason enough to follow your dreams! ⠀
stop waiting for someone to hand you a permission slip.⠀
i’m not any different than you, except i decided i wanted to live a life following my desires and not my fears.⠀
and so can you...just start babe!⠀
needing an extra boost or help working through your fears! let’s work together...i’d love to help!! ⠀

i used to be really insecure and on top of that, also had major social anxiety for a while. about 2-3 years ago, i even wrote a spoken word poem about how it all felt (i would’ve posted it but i can’t find it for now so next time🤪). i can recall a time when my professors in college intimidated me. i acted like a completely different person around them. i was also worried about fitting in and how others perceived me.
now that version of me really feels like it was a lifetime ago. i’m so much more confident in myself and not as easily intimidated by others. by all means, i’m nowhere near perfect but i’m so proud of where i am now. something that i keep in mind is that i’m unique, and so are you! we all have our own gifts, talents, personality traits, and stories to offer.
don’t shrink yourself because you were born to stand out, baby.✨

🤹🏽diversify your life 🚀
sometimes people are lonely, they don’t know how to find a life partner, friends, or simply someone with who they can talk to.
i am persuaded that more we challenge ourselves, more activities we try, more open minded, strong and interested person we become.
when we leave our comfort zone, move our hips from the chair and we finally move forward to adventures, then we progress, we meet so many incredible people and we find ourselves.
in russia usually we try so many things while we are at school. i remember that when i was younger i was doing violin, gymnastic, athleticism , horse riding, art school, basketball, football, scout organisation with whom we did so many adventures, life in the nature, theatre, hiking etc. and of course different dancing classes...so many. i remember i was coming back home super late not because i was partying, but because i was doing all these activities, then i was doing homework and then a new long day again. i loved it. and i am grateful to my parents who accepted and encouraged me.
that how i found my passion, my destination and how i met so many great people. especially in scout organisation and in dance.
so go, try ! there is no age to start something new! do whatever you want, even if it scares you, follow your soul, your desires. that is how you will become a better version of yourself.

Wondering what it’s like to be part of business success membership?
this was today’s office hours with a few members where we all celebrated some wins 🤩🤩🤩
jackie welcomed 50 new members from her most recent launch.
april is currently in launch & has already welcomed 6 members.
this is inspiring for all of us, including carrie that’s creating a new course & will launch this month & bubble who is working up to her on demand process.
it’s all fun.
it’s all supportive
and no one feels like they are stuck or alone anymore.
that’s an awesome place to be!
Leaving old habits and patterns of thinking behind is new and scary. it's also brave and courageous. it's perfectly acceptable to moments of complete and total doubt. this means you're assessing to figure out if you are a path that works for you.
don't turn back now! the adventure is just getting real.
The first time i heard this was 23 years ago, from my roommate at the time, when i was dating someone that had a challenge being available on a regular basis.
i knew what she was saying was true, but i wasn't ready to accept it at the time. i thought because i was in love, and because i was convinced he loved me too, our situation was different.
it took me more time than i'm proud of to come around. i now know my worth. and i want the same for you. you can definitely evaluate your significance by how much time a person makes for you. if you're important he/she will make time for you. the busiest person in the world still makes time for the things they seem important.
“el amor perfecto se moldea fuera del miedo.
donde hay amor, no hay demandas, no hay expectativas,
no hay dependencia.
yo no demando que me hagas feliz; mi infelicidad no reside en ti.
si me dejases, no sentiría pena de mi mismo; disfruto enormemente de tu compañía, pero no me aferro a ella”.🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋
Mom life! this sweet boy is very accident prone. maybe it's because he's two, but he gets more bumps, bruises and scratches than i'd like him to have. it breaks my mama heart when he hurts himself and cries. 😥 yesterday jake was doing some yard work and a rock flew up and hit lincoln in the face, right by his eye. luckily my dear friends at morocco naturals just send me their healing chrysm! i didn't want to put anything with harsh chemicals or alcohol on the wound because it's next to his eye and if he rubs it then guess what gets in his eye? so, luckily i had the healing chrysm and it's working wonders. he even rubbed it into his eye after i put it on and it didn't even phase him. as a mom i'm always looking for products that are natural and have little to no chemicals in them. i'm grateful for my friends at morocco naturals for letting me try this amazing product. if you are looking for natural products for you and your family check out their page @morocconaturals

i used to ask for all lights to be off in order to undress. i used to avoid class so as not to be seen and heard.
and look at me now 😘 i still have work to do—it’s never over—but oh, i’ve made progress.
imagine how freeing it is to feel something and just do it and say it because you know it comes from a good and true place... it feels amazing!
it took some work and time but now i see how it could have gone much faster... it’s a complex issue but here are some tips to help you share your gifts and beauty, which we all long to see!
1. if you get anxious in situations where you’re asked to expose yourself, it’s probably linked to a trauma (possibly many) for which you felt rejected when being seen.
it’s logical; your ego wants to avoid to live that again. you were judged, critiqued, etc.
i was bullied and laughed at; that made me stop speaking up in class. a few years later, i wrote to those girls, they apologized, i journaled, and reflected on those events.
go there, feel it, re-write the story. an event is not a life sentence. give them their reactions back. come back on your path—we need the full you!
2. just do it (in a progressive, safe, supported way). sadly, technology makes it easy to hide, edit, and falsely feel safe behind our screens.
break through that, otherwise, your ego gets addicted to it. it’s hard and scary to post something personal or go live with your #truth , but as soon as you do, the #fear dissipates.
action heals #anxiety. do it for you to feel #free .
i love voice notes to practice more open live #communication.
3. give others complete permission to create their own story and perspective on you, because they will. we all project and imagine, based on our lenses.
i get some criticism and i know many can’t align with my shares...that’s normal! some get it and get inspired, some will get triggered. it’s just how it goes. and i get triggered too. when i do, i know it’s not about them but about parts of me i can further integrate. triggers reveal bugs in your code base. pretty cool!
please tag who created these, i’ve been looking for the creator all day!

contudo, livre árbitrio! responsável pelos seus atos, fase adulta da vida e do ser humano! lutamos uma vida inteira para entender o sim e o não, em meios de felicidades, sorrisos e choros, história com ciclo concluído para a próxima etapa de crescimento e outras nem tanto. pois tudo tem um começo, meio e fim.

Esta foto fue tomada exactamente no recuerdo aunque si recuerdo cómo me sentía! ha sido una de las épocas más difíciles en mi carrera profesional y al mismo tiempo de la cual aprendí más sobre mi.
descubrí que yo misma me ponía las barreras que me hicieron sentir incómoda,
aprendí a colocar límites a personas y situaciones,
aprendí a usar mi voz, a proponer ideas y a mantener mis valores,
aprendí a pedir ayuda,
aprendí a dejar ir,
aprendí que solo quien está listo para recibir ayuda la pide,
aprendí a conectarme con mi intuición,
aprendí a quitarme capas de ser quien yo no era sólo por lo que los demás pensaran.
aprendí a no rendirme,
aprendí a creer en mí,
acepté que todo lo que me sucedía en ese momento era mi propia creación.
y poco a poco tome las riendas, aprendí a levantarme firme y demostrar quién soy en realidad.
aprendí que no tengo que saberlo todo,
aprendí que mi título no me identifica,
aprendí el significado del: yo soy.
aprendí a ser y a dejar de hacer.
hoy, celebro y honro a la mujer en ésta foto, porque soy yo y al mismo tiempo ya no soy.
sigo re-descubriendo lo que ya sé✨
You have the power to f*****g plot twist on anyone whenever you want🤯
your past doesn’t define who you are for your whole life... unless you allow it! 🔥
if you don’t like where you are... then make a move like the true boss that i know you are —
you are not a tree, deeply rooted in only one place... whether that’s physically, spiritually, emotionally, socially, or mentally! 🔥
you have two feet, controlled by a mind that is so powerful! ❤️
so freaking powerful that it either stops you from taking action with negative self talk and fear/doubts or it propels you to who you want to become 🤯
and honestly, like with anything, it takes practice to master your mindset! 🔥
and i’d like to say... i’m an expert in that field! 🥰
what differentiates me from other life coaches, is that i’m psych based and specialize in working with high achieving and goal setting bosses — creatives, experts, and ceos!🔥
and i carry with me my experiences as a multistate psych nurse and a senior + couple photographer!🔥
i know the struggles of wanting the feed to look picture perfect... 😭
to not know how to separate work + life... 😭
to feel extremely anxious as an overachiever... 😭
to be so successful in society’s eyes and yet feel so, so freaking emptyy... 😭
to feel sooo guilty in prioritizing self care + self love before anyone else... 😭
to feel unaligned and disconnected with other people...😭
i know these struggles firsthand. and i created self healing boss academy with all these difficult in mind... to guide you through all the mess!! 🤯
step by step, thought by thought, week by week, boss by boss!🔥
and i’m so happy to say... we already have one boss in the program, who is ready to expedite this self healing journey for himself! 🔥
it’s okay to ask for help. it’s okay to not do everything on your own. it’s okay to take care of yourself first, rather than keep giving and giving until there’s nothing of you left — no more energy and motivation. no more purpose.😭
i’m here for you! 💪

all your wishes will come true !
have you been manifesting lately because it appears to be coming your way. gifts are coming your way or this is a sign you need to be more generous the universe rewards you when you have gratitude and what you pour out will return to you.
the future is not predestined. think positive and in the morning say some affirmations .
you might be attracting a fire sign or a earth sign to be specific : a leo or virgo
or someone from your past may be coming back to you an ex or old crush ( possibly a taurus )
•*courage is your affirmation ( repeat that out loud tonight & tomorrow morning ) #zodiacsigns#zodiac#readers#spirituality#spiritual#lifecoach#coach#insight#astrology#aries#taurus#gemini#cancer#leo#virgo#libra#scorpio#sagittarius#capricorn#aquarius#pisces#explore#explorepage#tarot#tarotcards#tarotreadersofinstagram#tarotreading#intuition#mother#water
Most of us have some unhealed childhood trauma. unhealed trauma can manifest as many things but here is a good list.
if you recognize yourself on this list celebrate yourself for noticing it. that the first and most important step!

if you need someone to support you reach out! i'm offering free 30 minute discovery calls to anyone looking to pivot their life into a whole new direction, learning to trust their intuition and being supported the whole way.

🌿 we need 6 essential nutrients to have a healthy body.
2. carbs (yes, you need these)
4. fats (only the good kinds)
🌿 if you are lacking in any of these nutrients it can zap your energy or worse, cause a myriad of other health problems. it’s so easy and convenient to grab food on the go because of our lifestyle, but so difficult to maintain a healthy diet.
🌿 are you getting enough of all of these nutrients with your current food choices?
🌿 always love hearing from you, comment below 👇🏼👇🏼
🌿 keep smiling 😊
the wheel of fear (which @rhondabritten wrote about in her book, fearless living) is a cycle we can fall into. it goes something like this:
🔄something triggers a fear in us that we aren’t good enough
🔄we avoid doing the thing that triggers that fear
🔄this ensures the fear comes true😦
🔄we generalise this to mean that we’re not good enough for anything 😣
we’ve heard that courage is the antidote to fear. so how to do we muster up courage? 🤷🏽♀️ simply willing it into existence doesn’t work.
and if we’re waiting for courage to show up in order to conquer our fear, we’ll remain standing still, not taking action 🕞we’ll continue to hide and use external things to numb our pain of not growing… watching tv, being “busy”, blaming it on kids/work/circumstances…
so how do we bust through the fear and summon in courage?💪🏽
the key is to take action! 👊🏽 in doing so we create a knew, more resourceful cycle:
♻️the more action we take, the more we prove to ourselves that we can actually do the thing that we’re fearing.
♻️and the more we act, the more we magnify our abilities to overcome that challenging thing.
♻️eventually, it’s no longer a challenge and we’re ready for the next level of growth! 🙌🏾
Sis, your worth was well established before you were formed in your mother’s womb. you were made whole, perfect and complete. lacking nothing.👏🏾
unfortunately, many times hard life experiences cause us to diminish our own sense of self worth. 😔
but i encourage you to know that you are worthy! 💕
you are lovable 💕
and you are enough! 💕
sis, not a single life experience can diminish the masterpiece you undeniable are! ❤️

Shouthout out to everyone trying hard to heal their emotional wounds.
shout out to everyone helping to heal others.
shout out to everyone healing themselves and healing others!!!
to know you are enough, is not mental knowledge, its emotional acceptance and invisible faith.
free yourself of all negative feelings, for what you don't know is, that the burden you carry is on the shoulders of everyone you interact with and those feelings began with a thought.
for everyone we interact with is mirroring something in ourselves, those we love echo our ability to love and all those we can't stand are irritating our own issues...
be kind to yourself and others, you never know what battles they deal with.
never be too scared to ask for help, your life is worth more than know, the world needs you in it. #wearehere#heretohear
if you have a minute to listen to the voices of anyone other than yourself type #heretohear and listen out for someone who might need your ear.
let's be the change, today! this year has shown us a lot, let's act like we paid attention.
Generally, when we think of honesty, we think of it involving others...but it should also include how we operate within ourselves. we must be honest with ourselves about our needs, our desires, our thoughts, and our feelings. if we do not honest with ourselves, how can we expect honesty from others? if we do not communicate honestly with others, how can we hold them accountable for their actions? honesty starts and ends with us.

Thankful. strong. empowered women, empower women. i am lucky to have a supportive man that stands behind me.
who is your support? your rock?
Nobody is perfect.
after losing over 60 pounds, i’m left with evidence on my body. the stretch marks on my abdomen are not pleasant, along with the loose skin.
but, i’m learning to accept it. these are scars of creating something so beautiful. mind over matter.
is it going to be the imperfections that i remember in my ripe old age or will it be the laughter in the sunshine? i’d rather choose the 2nd one always.

a space so beautiful, so serene and even captivating. sunsets on the side of the mountain with a bottle of wine. the nicest locals to share pleasant conversations with. to finish off the day right, we’d stop into a local eatery, that was recomended by our host. we’d find a hearty dish of moussaka awaitng us on a two person black cast iron table, the kind with cute curly-cue designs on the underside. after satiating our hunger, one built up from our pleasent, yet, intense hike; we could retreat back into our cozy room completely satisfied. another night of rest.
this was all back before we had kids. we felt young and free! these are the horizons i keep my eyes focused on. designer life. now i get to welcome my daughter into this style and focus on this business that keeps my passion fulfilled.
athena was powerful, intelligent, handy, and beautiful all at once.
athenation- a space for modern women to come together. it will have the perfect combination of support, references, and science backed nutritional information. to my amazing women; what are some of the things you are looking for to help you in this current moment?
i know the story behind this in istanbul.
so we should stay together and stand up for womens rights.
alt lots off women inspires me
every day. i use to say that i learn something from everyone.
every women should be heard and respected for who they are, and who they want to become.
women should support each other
for who they are in smaller or bigger scales.
I was not blessed with genes that allowed my skin to bounce back quickly or easily postpartum.
however, there are 3 things i will share with you to help those just like myself!
1- water water water! i drink close to. if not 1 gallon of water daily. water can help for production of your own collagen, which will increase the skin elasticity.
2- i found a great product that worked! over the last year, i tried many different types of collagen and none came close to @vitauthority. this stuff helped tremendously! it is easily disolvable, vitrually no taste, and helped with the post partum skin. i drank it twice a day. once in morning coffee and once in the evening.
3- building muscle underneath the problem area. in my case my abs! you cannot see my chiselled abs underneath the f*t (i know they are there :p) but progress and not perfection is the way i’m going.

Pregnancy was not an easy feat for me. i had every symptom in the book and i did not feel like the pregnant goddess that some women feel. yet, i still wanted to capture maternity photos to remember this time in my life.
this was a photo taken by my husband and i while i was in labor!! i had professional maternity photos scheduled on the evening that i went into labor, but i did not want that to stop us from capturing this special time in my life.
so in between contractions, i coached my husband on how to photograph me!
they weren’t the professional photos i had hoped for, but they sure do have a story behind it. 36 hours of labor followed this photo. women sure are strong and powerful!!
