There are many psychological models and theories that are utilized in health coaching. It’s because of the psychology used in health coaching that I know there can be a lot of gray – not just as a coach, but also from the client perspective too. I’m not a therapist and there are limitations to how […]
I had a talk with a client this morning and as routine changes have occurred because of COVID we’ve consistently had a talk about being flexible. We’ve talked about shifting focus a few times so that we’re always considering how fluid health can be and how there are a lot of factors that influence it. […]
This is an odd post, but I think a necessary one. For me, writing is everything. I’ve been writing since high school. After dance, writing was an outlet that I felt comfortable it. While I continued to dance in my head after the weight gain, imaging turns and stomps – writing is something that I […]
Recently while I was talking to a client, I said to her that it sounds like you’re trying to take a new you and make it fit an old routine. Not those exact words, we all know I don’t talk that concisely – but that was the gist. The weather changes with the seasons and […]
I wish there was a hard and fast definition for weight loss and fat loss – I think we too often use them interchangeably and, in some cases, I find myself doing the same because it can be hard for some to understand there’s a difference. Looking around for language, it’s clear than many experts […]
I guess my plan is to continue to make healthy choices to the best of my ability with what’s in front of me, and continue to moderate my behavior because it’s a part of my life now, and this day doesn’t have the power it once did to change that.
I’m going to talk to you like a long, lost friend – I guess that’s the easiest way to go about this. So it’s been 14 days and before that it was 501 day. I was finishing up my first spring semester of my degree. I had signed up for three summer classes – anatomy […]
When I started competing I thought I had to eat every few hours. This was something that I had read about, but more importantly (at the time) it was something that I saw over and over again in practice online. For me, every few hours meant every three hours. I was on a cycle of […]
Here’s the blog post to pair with the video on the stages of change model. It’s a bit more detailed about the initial studies that lead to the development of the model. I highlight some of the findings that DiClemente and Prochaska had even though the initial samples were small.
As a coach , I want my client to succeed, but that also means that we need to be honest when looking at their over goals, where they are currently in their life and what they’re willing to invest in making change. Not everyone is ready for big change, hell, not everyone is ready for small change either – change is scary, but scary doesn’t mean impossible. You just need to give yourself time.
