This episode of Fed and Fearless™ is with my client, Erika, who shares with us her health journey. Erika lives a naturally active lifestyle, living in rural Colorado, but was chronically undereating. Couple this with a few other negative mindsets and unhelpful beliefs and Erika was struggling to live in alignment with her best health.

Erika was trying to live the healthiest life she could, eating the foods she “should”, exercising every day, and avoiding those foods that were “unhealthy”. But whose rules was she following? Erika explains that she relied on the advice she found on the internet – some of which was beneficial but other advice was incorrect and even harmful.

The thing about the information on the internet is that it’s not one-size-fits-all advice. What works for one person isn’t necessarily going to be what your body needs to get healthy. 

Erika started working privately with me before investing in the Fed and Fearless™ group coaching. Both programs she attributes much of her success to in finally living out her health goals. One of the benefits of a group program, that you don’t get through solo coaching or internet researching, is the feedback from other women who are working on the same challenges you are. It gives you the understanding that you’re not alone in your problems.

When you start improving one aspect of your health, there tends to be a knock-on effect on other parts of your life, including your mental and spiritual health. Erika shares how, after going through some of our sessions together, she approached her doctor to get testing for some possible underlying health issues. Her doctor dismissed her concerns – that’s when Erika and I worked on a game plan to help her become her own advocate and approach her doctor again.

Erika talks openly about how joining Fed and Fearless™ has led to spiritual growth, not just physical wellness, for her. Being in a supportive group of other women has helped her live in alignment with her spiritual beliefs. 

Another benefit learned from Fed and Fearless™ is the ability to shift her mindset. Erika has learned to control what that voice in her head says and how she reacts to things. And further to this, she has been able to finally separate her self-worth from her physical challenges.

Have you been struggling to bring all aspects of your health into true balance? Do you need advice on how to be your own health advocate? What impact do you want to leave on the world? Let me know in the comments below!

“Question why you’re doing what you’re doing. If you have no very clear reason why you’re doing something, then you get to expand what’s possible for you and what can be healthy for you. You’ll have more of a say in what you’re doing and not just following all these arbitrary rules that don’t actually benefit you.” (18:43)

“I have been trying to do this myself for decades. Fed and Fearless™ is where God has led me and it’s clearly meant to be the next step.” (23:33)

“I don’t want to be remembered in a way that my body was all I cared about. It doesn’t do anything for other people.” (36:35)

“Your physical health does not change who you are but there are also things that can be done. If you want to feel better, if you want to maximize your health, there are also ways to do it that don’t revolve around self-deprecation and self-hatred.” (48:25)

“If you’re at the place you are now and you can do it yourself, and you’re still not where you want to be, then, sorry to say, but do you really think that keeping on doing it yourself is going to make that much of a difference?” (1:02:52)
