Yasssss!  Let it all out!  Not allowing yourself to feel - and getting numb with food, wine, whatevs, turns you into a volcano ready to explode.  A 12-year study (linked below) conducted by psychologists from Harvard School of Public Health and the University of Rochester found that suppressing emotions may increase the risk of dying from heart disease and certain forms of cancer. This confirms earlier studies that have linked negative emotions like anger, anxiety, and depression to the development of heart disease.  Icky situations will come and go.  When they do acknowledge your feelings unapologetically and protect yoself from things that wreck yoself.  i.e. if you know something will trigger you cut it out of your life.  Simple swaps like say skipping happy hour for a workout sesh powered by a Beyoncé playlist for example do a world of good. 💖💖💖 Big love and happy Friday 🙌🏼🎉. Here’s that study if you wanna Check it out 🤓 http://www.jpsychores.com/article/S0022-3999%2813%2900303-6/abstract #wellness #healthy #healthcoach #yesyoucan #positivevibes #happyfriday 📸 via @melrobbinslive (love the 5 second rule book!!)
Hi!  I’m Christina.
.
I started a diet the very first day I was born.  I was born without a developed digestive system and had to be to prevent nutrient deficiencies.
.
I was in a horrible sledding accident at 5 yo.  It took 5 reconstructive surgeries to get my face to look the way it does now.
.
The accident injured my brain and I have a frontal lobe traumatic brain injury.  My TBI makes it hard for me to feel happy and to control impulses. .
I turned to food to cope with the trauma.  Food made me happy and it was hard to control it.  This was right around the ‘fat free’ craze in the 80’s. All of which contributed to me becoming a food addict.
.
I had to have emergency heart surgery at 15.  I had WPW and my heart rate would jump from 80 BPM to 300+ BMP without warning.  There was a 30% chance I could die every time it happened. And it happened all. the. time.
.
That was my freshman year of high school.  Despite my straight A’s I didn’t like school.  I was bullied nonstop.  I turned to food to cope... which made everything worse.
.
I’ve gained and lost weight going from a 14 in kids to a 14 in women’s several times using whatever diet/exercise was trending at the time.
.
Then one day - I saw the biggest number I’d ever seen on the scale and I had had enough.  I needed help but no trainers or nutritionists at the time knew how to work with my medical issues. (Did I mention my food allergies and torn knee cartilage?)
.
I became a nutritionist and trainer to figure out how to get my mind right and body right.  And I did.  I lost 40 pounds, which I’ve kept off for the past 10 years.  And I’ve been helping other people lose weight and get healthy ever since.
.
A car accident injured my spine about 5 years ago.  At first I thought my career was over but I took my biz online and help even more people now. 🙏🏼
.
Why am I sharing this?  Because I know you have a story and struggles, too.
.
Please know that change takes time.  You didn’t get where you are overnight... give yourself time to get where you want to be.
. 
Your setbacks are opportunities for comebacks.  And everyone loves a comeback. :) #flawsome #weightlossjourney #fitspo #loveyourself #wellness
Choose wisely my friends.  The easiest way to fight disease, fat, and feeling frumpy is to eat plants and drink filtered water.  Easy breezy.  Add veggies into all of your meals to start soaking up the benefits.  What are your favorite veggies?  I’m currently loving Brussels sprouts and gigantic salads 😬

This looks so good.  Butternut squash is packed with vitamin C which can help boost your immunity and collagen retention.  Yay for foods that fight illness and aging! 🙌🏼 thank you for the dinner inspo: @goodful

The more I learn about turmeric the more I fall in love.  I’ve been adding a teaspoon of turmeric to my smoothies after workouts and have felt a world of difference in my knee and back pain.  I have dementia in my family too so I’m upping my intake. 🙌🏼 Have you ever felt a difference using it?

Remember the Tortoise and the Hare?  I loved that story.  I was so happy for the tortoise when he won the race because the hare was a show off jerk face.
.
I work with a lot of people who start their transformations like the Hare.  They make progress, then chill, and feel bummed because they reallllly want their goal.
.
Play it like the tortoise, yo.  Do a little bit at a time, do your best, and don’t stop until you cross the finish line.  Happy Sunday! #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #healthyfood #healthcoach #healthylifestyle #EatYourVitamins #fitness #fitspo

A friendly lil PSA 🤗
One of my intentions I set for myself this year was to go 100% alcohol free.  For me alcohol is the new dairy.  Im glad to see alcohol gone from my life.  At first I thought it’d be hard but I feel incredible.  Spa water is my new fave thing and go-to mocktail.
.
Simply mix fruits, cuke slices, and mint into water and boom superfood hydration.  It tastes lovely and feels fancy af.  I’m obsessed.  Give it a try to stay hydrated. 💖🍋 rReposted from @healthyfood.ec  #hyrate #healthy #water #healthcoach
