I love what Gretchen Rubin says about habits in her book Better Than Before:
"For good and bad, habits are the invisible architecture of daily life".
I simply couldn't agree more.
You do not need another "diet".
You do not need to follow another perfect meal plan.
You do not need yet another “diet expert” to tell you exactly what to eat in order to lose weight or be healthy.
You do not need specially packaged foods or shakes.
You are not undisciplined.
You are not incapable.
What you do need, is support from a health expert to help you create (and stick to) daily health habits.
Healthy habits create your healthy life.
In working with my previous clients, I observed that while so many of them were very eager and enthusiastic at the beginning, follow through could be a problem.
We would work together to create amazing plans tailored to their likes, preferences, needs and health concerns and we would talk about how to become healthier through the use of whole foods. I thought they had all the tools.
I now understand though, that what was always missing was the focus on developing good habits as well as individualized, daily support. I learned that you can make the absolute best menu plan and give the most amazing advice, but none of that is very useful if it's not going to be adhered to.
You will receive DAILY accountability and support from a real person. (Me!) I will use my nutrition know-how to make personalized recommendations on things we might want to tweak in your diet OR lifestyle, and we will do this gently yet effectively.
What works for one will not work for all. We will figure out what works best for you, and because we are working with YOUR habits, you WILL get results. (If you follow through, of course).
Maybe you aren't even aware of where you're going wrong.
I will help you pinpoint "problem areas" and work with you to change them using proven techniques. Come prepared to make some amazing changes that work in YOUR life!
If you're reading this, you are probably feeling like I was 12 weeks ago. Really wanting to make lasting changes, but tired of dieting and giving up on yourself. For years, I've longed to be a person that has a balanced approach to food, but I always tried to achieve that through extreme means.
I thought I needed someone to keep me accountable to my diet, but working with Stacy actually helped transform my diet mindset entirely. She'll help you make gradual changes that you can sustain. She's also incredibly supportive and understanding.
I learned so much from the experience and I've made some great habits that I know I will carry forward. If you are a diet fanatic like I was, I definitely challenge you to sign up and give yourself 12 weeks with Stacy. It may change your body, but more importantly, it'll change your mind.
What can I say, Stacy has been a tremendous help to me as I navigate through my IBS issues and been helpful to get me on a path to ease my symptoms. She is so encouraging and always there to answer any questions I have had. It wasn't just about eating, it was about my mental wellbeing and finding my emotional eating triggers.
When she said the 12 weeks were done, I was sad and thought, I can't do this on my own. I've had a few slip ups but I've got enough confidence now to know that I can do it and that if I have any questions, she is just an email away. Thank you for everything and I know your future clients will be in great hands with you as their cheerleader
I thought if I didn’t choose good foods I would get judged. But it was the complete opposite. Never once in the 12 weeks was I judged on my food choices, instead I was given suggestions, asked questions that forced me to look at some of the choices I was making and above all I was given encouragement. It was refreshing for me to have access to Stacy’s food choices as well, everyday I was able to see what she was eating, and I was also able to see that she is human just like the rest of us.
Stacy’s feed back was what I valued the most out of the program. Not only did I receive a weekly review in my inbox of how my week went, but once again I was given questions that I needed to answer. It really made me think about the past week and what I could do to improve. With those answers Stacy would then review them, and provide suggestions on what I could do to meet those weekly goals. If there was something that I wanted to work on that week, Stacy would work around that. If there was a question that she didn’t have an answer to, she would research it, and if she felt something was beneficial to the rest of her clients, she would pass that information along. There was always so much to learn, and so much support.
Stacy will be with you every step of the way, providing encouragement and resources, she will help you to learn how to eat healthy and still have a life. Losing the dieting mentality is so freeing. It allows you to live your life, and that lesson is priceless.
Thank you Stacy! I really enjoyed my time with you and learned so much!
Accountability coaching was exactly what I needed to get back into healthy habits after a stressful year of family health scares and wedding planning. While I felt like I knew basic nutrition knowledge of “eat your veggies” “drink your water” “reduce sugar intake”, it’s very helpful to make better choices when you have someone holding you accountable. Stacy does just that, she has a Pinterest page of so many healthy and tasty recipes available to you, she helps you plan out your week so you stay on track, and she can see everything you eat from the app you use to track your food! It really helps you to think twice about what you’re eating.
I especially love her social media presence, she does a live video almost every day on her private clients only page, and I swear when she does them she’s talking straight to me about a topic that I really needed to hear. She has so many resources available to you, from the Facebook page, to her newsletter, and her Instagram posts!
I even got my husband to start enjoying more vegetables so that’s a huge win as well!
It really doesn’t feel like you’re “dieting”, you aren’t restricting, you’re just making healthier choices with someone cheering you on along the way! At the end of the 12 weeks I have a better understanding of eating until you’re satisfied, planning ahead so you stay on track, and understanding that life doesn’t always go according to plan, but you can always get back on track in the next meal. I’ve created way better eating habits and I’m hoping to continue choosing healthy habits for life!
Thank you so much Stacy!!
Simply, at some point we all realize we are not going to get anywhere unless we start eating properly (me to my brain "if I stop and have that Big Mac meal, I will just workout 15 minutes longer"...UH, wrong answer). Believe me, this is a tough thing for a middle aged Alberta boy who loves his fast-food and lots of gravy on everything to admit.
The time and dedication Stacy put into working directly with me to build my dedicated Nutrition Package was awesome. The initial consultations with her were mind blowing for me. I never realized at just how important nutrition really was and the effects it has on all aspects of life (this could be just a guy/husband thing lol). I will emphasize that THIS IS NOT A DIET, IT'S A LIFESTYLE CHANGE (thanks Coach 😉).
If your are seriously wanting a lifestyle change as to obtain a personal goal or just making a better, healthier, life for yourself and/or your family, I highly recommend Stacy if you are willing to get your ass in gear and make this S#@T REAL.
THANK YOU Stace for helping to carve a better future for me and my family and the continual coaching that will be needed as the next holiday season seems to always be just around the corner lol.
Stacy is an amazing coach to work with. She was the missing link that I long searched for to help me get closer to my own personal goals. She is always with you every step of the way which brings you that much closer to success! Stacy is a great listener and truly cares about you and your goals. That's what makes her a fantastic coach!
The app is amazing for tracking your daily food, and with Stacy's accountability coaching, you will definitely think twice about what you reach for! You will meet other like-minded people on the app for inspiration and support. At times I felt like I was sliding off track or taking two steps back instead of forward. Stacy is always there to assure you she's got your back and inspire you with the motivation that you need to keep going. She always gives positive advice to refocus and get you back on track.
In just three months I have grown to have a healthier relationship with food and learned that when you implement changes gradually and learn to make good habits it becomes routine. Which is why the changes I have made are sustainable and long term. Stacy taught me to be more in tune with my body and listen to it so I can make better decisions around food. This is a way of life that creates balance and leads you to a happier healthier body and mind. Learn to trust the process and good things will come!
Thank you for all your encouragement, motivation, support and resources. Stacy has a heart of gold! Thank you for being you and helping me find my way.
