Meet Carol, Your New Health, and Life Coach!
I have a secret to share with you…
I may be a health and life coach now, but that wasn’t always the case.
In fact, if I had been told that I’d be interested in coaching people to transform their lives through healthier living, I wouldn’t have believed it.
My entire life has been about eating the wrong food. I was a jock so wasn’t too concerned with what I ate. But that all changed after I had children. I still ate like a 12-year-old, and McDonald’s was my favourite place, but I no longer had time to exercise. My energy decreased, my weight increased after each child and I soon found myself with a “mommy body”. I was still under 30.
So? What happened to turn my mess into a career as a health and life coach? It wasn’t just one moment but rather a series of moments that led to change. I broke my ankle at 50-years-old and it took 16-weeks to heal. The pain in my hips, knees, and feet lasted much longer and my mobility and flexibility were so limited that I couldn’t tie my own shoes! But when I got a pre-diabetes diagnosis and hit 200 lbs. I knew that changed was needed and that the time for change had come. Watching my peers suffer with “aging” inspired me to not only help myself but to help others. Coaching was exactly what I needed to do just that.
