Erin RDN., LDA Girl with a Healthy Apron
Hi, I’m Erin! I am a busy, working momma of one, as well as a health and fitness coach. While I used to have oodles of time to spend at the gym and cook in the kitchen-these days, I am much more practical.
To sum it up, I have learned that health has got to fit in your life! What you will find throughout this space are tips, recipes, and workouts that will help you build toward a lifetime of health.
I was just like most women and grew up feeling a strong connection between my weight and my worth. From as young as I can remember, I was self-conscious of my weight and began a quest to have the “perfect” shape. I tried every diet and lost/gained the same 15 pounds in a seemingly endless cycle. In college, I made choices that perpetuated feelings of worthlessness. I was obsessive with weighing, measuring, counting calories, and exercising for hours a day. I had very disordered eating habits and felt ill most days.
Instead of living and enjoying life– I was living for the scale, workouts, and cycles of over and under-eating. My obsession with “wellness,” made me unwell. How about that?
To undo years of struggle, I had to change my mindset. I studied, read, and did the work on myself to feel better. I started to come to life.
After 10 years in wellness, I’ve learned that each person has their own unique story and it’s important to take a very personalized approach to wellness-diving in to all aspects of health from your mind to your body. I hope this space helps YOU create your own approach with concepts I will share to achieve your very best life. Pray, praise, and promise yourself it’s time to start living well!
My Values & Beliefs
I love nutrition and strongly believe all foods can fit when you’re being mindful and listening to your body. Choose more plant-based foods and less animal based foods, use your innate intuition to gauge hunger and fullness. Not quite there? I can teach you how!
Find movement you love and then create variations of it to challenge your body! I believe in 1-3 structured workouts a week paired with natural movements-get those 10,000 steps a day! Movement throughout the day should be a priority more than gym time.
Healthy eating means color, texture, and TASTE! Throughout my blog, read through recipes that are family friendly and true to everyday living. They will be simple and full of flavor!
