"This course was a course like no other course in which I’ve participated. I’ve been involved in a number of programs throughout my fitness journey and while I was able to walk away with positive tools from each of them, I feel that this course got to the root of my issues regarding healthy living… my personal mindset. Notice I am not limiting my words to eating habits or losing weight or “insert goal here”. Do portion control and calorie reduction and minimizing of this macro or that macro work? Sure they do … for a little while… but I find myself on a journey and “digging a little deeper” was what I loved most about these 28 days. The information I gathered was invaluable in that it encouraged to look at my own belief systems about myself and really look at the ‘whys’ of how those belief systems were sparked and truly see how my own beliefs, my own negative self-talk, my own body image and standards in my mind affected my self-worth (or lack thereof) and confidence.
This course allowed me to see that putting a time line on just plain ‘being better’ whether that meant being more fit or eating healthy was/is not working for me personally. That stress of being tall, blonde and ‘skinny’ by age 50 has come and gone! Lol! Instead, working towards finding love for myself for who I am and what I look like and respecting, listening and trusting my body were just a couple of positives that I was able take away from this course. A journey is a journey… it is continuous – constantly moving forward – learning something each day. And so as the word ‘diet’ implies an end point, this course allowed me to find a little love for myself when I have successes but also give myself a little grace when the journey has been ‘less than perfect’. I found that the grace is allowing me to continue to move forward unlike in the past when a failed day would derail the entire journey.
I think what you will find through Sarah’s words and encouragement is that the answer to your questions regarding your goals (Goals= fitness, weight loss, better mother, wife, employee etc.) relies within YOU. The answers and knowledge have been there all along. And only YOU can make the necessary changes towards your defined success and this course walks you through some of that mindset. Sarah guides you through this journey quite nicely with lots of organized knowledge and love.
All I can say is to go through the course and if anything just listen. If you don’t do anything else throughout the 28 days – just listen… with intent. I assure you that you will walk away with at least one thing that will help you on your journey. And if you walk away with even just one thing – it was a successful 28 days… it was for me!"
