Ah, the infamous "I can do it all myself" mentality. It's a classic trap that many of us fall into. We think we're superheroes who can take on the world, conquer all challenges, and transform ourselves into the best version of ourselves, all by ourselves.
But let's be real here. No matter how hard we try, we're not invincible. We're only human. And as much as we hate to admit it, we need help sometimes. Especially when it comes to making healthy habit changes, eating well, planning for success, and getting in healthy movement.
So, if you're ready to swallow your pride and embrace the power of collaboration, here are a few reasons why it's okay to ask for help:
You're not a health coach, personal trainer, or planner extraordinaire.
Sure, you might have watched a few YouTube videos on how to meal prep or do squats, but that doesn't make you an expert. There's a reason why people go to school for years to study nutrition or exercise science. They know what they're talking about. So,...

One of the most significant benefits of keeping your sacred appointments is that it helps you prioritize your well-being. When you make time for yourself, you are making a conscious decision to take care...
Soooo… I want to chat with you about something that's been on my mind lately- accountability and weight loss.

It's so much easier to stay motivated when you have people cheering you on and pushing you to do your best.
And, have I ever told you about how working with a personal trainer was a total lifesaver? My trainer helped me create a workout plan tailored to my needs and goals. He also made sure I used proper form and technique, which helped me avoid injury and see better results. Plus, he kept me accountable by checking my progress and giving me feedback on...
