Menu for a freind who has started her journey with me.

I was a personal trainer for over two years.  I helped people get healthy, change their lifestyles and really understand how their bodies work.  I never push products that are dehydrated foods or shakes that you only drink because they do not teach you how to eat in the real world.  I am all about educating and helping each person, becuase it is different for everyone, how to REALLY change their lives and make the most of it.  I am all about helping you start living the life you were meant to live.

One of my clients, who is now a freind, did an excellent job on my program and with my guidance.  However, she alloowed herself to slip back into old habits and allowed her mind to take over her heart and desires for her new life.  Needless to say she gained her weight back and went back to eating for comfort rather than fuel.

I am very excited, and honored, that she has approached me again needing my help and understands what she gave up and how she gave up on herself.

This is her menu for her first week.  I am sharing this with the world so that if you find youself in the same boat and need help.... you can follow along or you can reach out and I can help get you where you want to be.

I like to throw in these pictures because this was me when I started my journey and the last pictures was me when I reached my goals..... it is good to be able to look back on where you where and see how far you have came.  I will find the pictures of my friend to show the before and afters of her as well so she can see where she once was!
