    Stop with your bullshit excuses. It’s that simple.
    I know I know – simple doesn’t = easy.

    You used to be an athlete in back in the day but somehow you lost your grit.
    You lost your confidence along the way.
    You gained a lot of weight in college or maybe while pregnant.
    You lost the weight because you had a strategy that worked for you back then. You worked out, you ate on point – most of the time.

    But something was missing.

    You felt deprived. You couldn’t eat the things you wanted or do this or do that because you’d screw it all up.
    The days you’re on point you felt AMAZING and the MOST confident you had in years – yet you didn’t reach your goal.

    Then shit really hit the fan.

    You had another kid.
    You went back to school.
    You work a full-time job (or two).
    You lost control of your health and now you’re back at square one.

    You know you can lose the weight because you’ve done it so many times before but you struggle keeping it off.

    You know once you start, it becomes a lifestyle. But you struggle with where to start. Especially when it comes to food. And self-care.

    You use diet loosely because you really want a healthier lifestyle and not something short term… again.
    Once you find a ‘diet’ that works you don’t veer from it which = burnout from the same old same old.

    Then it happens.

    You ‘mess up.’

    Now you’re stressed which = comfort eating. Stress eating.

    All the progress you made is now in the toilet. Again.

    You lose all the energy you gained back.

    Your confidence plummets from the weight gain which feeds the ugly cycle of comfort eating.

    YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

    I repeat: YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

    This is a journey so let’s come from a place of compassion rather than fixing what’s broken.
    There is nothing wrong with you!

    You don’t need fixing.

    You’re not broken.

    You’re stuck in a pattern and can’t see the way out.

    I like to imagine it like running on a treadmill. You start moving so fast it stirs shit up – like when you first start running and it freaking sucks but once you get your breathwork right and you’re past that hump it feels great. This is the same thing!

    You get started and it stirs all your emotions, thoughts, what-ifs, and beliefs up and it scares you.

    All of that is hitting you so hard, so fast – it’s that wall. Or that little voice that says “you can’t do this.”
    You tell yourself you don’t know why you started this journey in the first place.

    The more you think about it the faster the ‘treadmill’ goes and before you know it you’re about to fall off. You don’t know how to get off safely.

    You don’t know how to stop all those thoughts and beliefs and what-ifs.
    The flood of emotion is real and it swallows you up before you know what happened.

    You don’t know how to break the pattern.

    You don’t know how to end that chapter of your life to start the new one. The one you want.
    You do know-how.

    But when you’re caught up in the moment and all those fears and doubts and beliefs and insecurities flood your mind it gets hard. It gets scary.

    It feels like the only way off that treadmill is to jump but if you jump you’ll crash and burn and look like a total goof who failed again.
    Once again you proved to yourself that living a ‘healthy’ lifestyle that works for you is impossible.

    You tell yourself you gave it you are all.

    No, you didn’t!!!!
    If you did it would have worked!

    If you gave it everything you have you’d have what you want!

    You didn’t trust yourself enough to go all in.

    Every choice you make is an opportunity to learn why you do what you do. If you don’t feel your choice is serving you then it’s doing you a disservice.

    Here’s something I learned from my mentor…

    It’s not your circumstances holding you back – it’s you.

    You’re holding yourself back.

    Every attempt and failure is you.

    Every success is you.

    Until you own that you’re not going all-in you won’t get the results you want.

    You’ll keep spinning the bull shit excuses you’ve taught yourself to believe.

    Excuses like:

    • You’re a single mom who works a full-time job, or 2 or 3. So what! You’re not the only one. Others can do those things while hitting their goal – so can you!

    • You go to school and do X, Y & Z to make ends meet. So what! So did I and others like us and they made their wants a reality.

    • You don’t have the money. How much money do you waste every week on shit that gets you further from what you want? Plus, that’s what credit cards and loans are for. I had to have my mentor tell me this – leverage your money so it’s WORKING FOR YOU!

    • You don’t have the time. What do you spend your time doing? Binging on Netflix? Instagram stories? Scrolling through Facebook or Pinterest? We all have 24 hours in a day. All of us. The people who make shit happen and hit their goals know how to prioritize and put themselves first.

    • You work night shift – me too!!! I still show up to be here for you.

    • ALL the finances fall on you causing a lot of stress. I’ve been in that boat too sister.

    I don’t believe your excuses. None of them!

    I’ve been in your shoes. I’ve used every single one of those excuses and more. The only difference between you and me is I found the right people to challenge me.

    To support me.
    To push me.
    If you’re struggling with your health, weight, eating habits, etc this isn’t about finding a diet that works. They all work. All of them.

    The problem is you. And the amount of effort you put in.

    With that being said, let me make this clear – I don’t believe in diets.

    Diets leave you feeling rigid, confused, frustrated and like you have to use exercise as a punishment. BS!

    Those are the same restrictive thoughts and beliefs holding you back from everything else!
    They’re meant to keep you in this pattern.
    Once you “fuck up” you jump back on the treadmill of emotion and beliefs.
    You tell yourself how much you suck and find yourself eating everything in sight to numb out from the guilt and shame of fucking up yet again.

    The real problem is stress.

    You don’t know how to effectively manage it. You don’t know how to cope with it.
    Stress….. Go figure right? Right!

    You stuffing your face because you “blew it for the day” was your old coping strategy.

    It numbed you out and took away the deprivation only to replace it with guilt and shame. It probably even made you feel better for a nano-second.

    That worked for you then, give yourself a pat on the back for helping yourself through stressful moments then but that’s the past and it’s not working for you anymore.

    Now it’s working against you. That strategy is now the problem.

    Here’s the reason you can’t break through this pattern.

    You’re not putting yourself into the arena where people celebrate the kind of work you’re doing to up level yourself.

    Right now, you complain and tell your struggles to other people in the same boat as you. They’re stuck too – so do you think asking them for help and support will help you move forward?

    No!
    They’re not helping you succeed. They’re helping you stay stuck because they believe all your bull shit excuses and sob stories.
    This is so hard.
    I can’t do it.
    I don’t have time.
    I work too much.

    Wah wah wah…..

    You won’t show up for all the shit you should do because it’s not what you really want. It’s somebody else’s wants.
    When shit gets hard – which it will- think of your WHY.

    Why are you doing this?
    Why do you want this?

    Why are you going to show up and do the fucking work?

    Showing up like you know it will work has nothing to do with the circumstances in your life. It has everything to do with your faith in yourself.

    You have to believe you’re capable or you’ll never do it.
    You have to do it like you KNOW it will work.
    You can spend your time worrying about what-ifs.
    Or, you can take the action you know you need to take to get there.

    THAT MEANS ASKING FOR HELP!

    Ask for help woman!

    You’re not meant to do this alone. We all want and need a supportive tribe to hold us accountable and to help us see what we’re capable of.

    Put yourself in the arena with people who have achieved what you want.
    They’ve done the work and will push you to your goal.

    They won’t buy into your BS because we see it for what it is.

    BS.

    What will life be like in a year from now if you keep this up? Two years? Three?

    It’s not going to be any easier tomorrow than it is today…
    You DESERVE all of your wants and desires to be your reality.
    With love,
    Becca, xoxo ❤

    Your mindset isn’t all about positivity and happy happy happy.
    I’ve been hearing people say that coaches are all woo woo people and we think you need to be happy all the time and bubbly and full of life and energy.

    No. Just no.

    It’s not just about being happy and it’s not like I expect you to be freaking happy all the time. That’s not realistic.
    When I tell someone it’s all in their head and their mindset is what drives you I mean if you’re going into something expecting to fail then you will fail.

    If you’re going in expecting to fall on your face then you will.
    If you go in thinking you’re going to be epic and amazing at whatever it is you’re doing then you’ll be fucking amazing at it and rock it!

    You set your expectations and the universe delivers.

    The world doesn’t let things happen to you, it allows them to happen for you.
    Better yet, you’re winning the game you’re playing. I think I’ve mentioned this before.

    If you’re constantly putting yourself on the back burner and can’t figure out why all your efforts to take care of yourself fail it’s because you’re winning that game. You’re winning the game of ‘take care of everyone except me. I’ll get my turn eventually or maybe someone else will take care of me.’

    No, they won’t because you’re teaching them what to expect of you and how to treat you.

    If you’re trying to break a habit and you do great for a couple of weeks and it’s going perfect and then you mess up so the whole thing is ruined, that’s the game you’re playing – ‘it has to be perfect or I suck.’ You’re not allowing yourself any grace to learn what happened. If you did you’d probably be able to see the patterns that could be tweaked.
    It’s funny how this ‘self-sabotage’ sneaks up on us isn’t it.

    I’m sure you know someone who ‘self-sabotages’ themselves, if you do share this and like it, comment below where this sabotage shows up for you. I love all the support and you never know who you know that may need to hear this.
    It’s not unexpected tho, somewhere within your mindset you’ve told yourself that you’ll fail, then you’ll add it to the list of things that don’t work for you and you’ll start the cycle over again – telling yourself how hard it is and nothing works and I’m always going to be this way.

    Guess what – that’s a HABIT. It’s all in your head!

    Personally, I don’t believe in self-sabotage.

    I’ve learned people tell themselves stories to create an experience they desire. People experience what they want to be experiencing. It’s that simple.

    You see, when we start something new to change who or how we are, we go into it with false expectations.
    OR we go into it already thinking we’re going to fail.
    Or, we go into it full-hearted.

    It doesn’t matter how you start, at some point, it’ll be going great then that one small thing happens that makes you question our efforts and that one tiny set back feels like Mount Everest, and you shame yourself.
    Newsflash: you haven’t failed. You just provided yourself feedback, and you’re winning the game you set out to win.
    What if you chose to have the mindset that a ‘failure’ is a learning block rather than a setback?
    What if we think of these moments as winning the game we’re playing? If you thought it of from this perspective you’re not sabotaging yourself, you’re setting yourself up for success, for what’s to come.
    Have you ever played a game? Any game – Halo, tennis, football, chess, etc.
    How does a game work?

    You play off the strategies you know, and you observe the other player’s actions and along the way, you notice your opponent’s strategy, and you begin to anticipate their next move. This is the same thing! Your mind is your opponent and it knows when to make its move.
    Have you ever heard successful people are resilient?
    One of my mentors said “Success is largely determined by resilience.”
    I love this quote and it’s true of your health, wealth, relationships, work, sports, business, anything. You’re doing great and then have a sudden setback, fall off the wagon, become demotivated and quit doing what was working so well for you then your success rate will naturally decline.
    Everytime you quit, you’re building the habit of quitting. You’re wiring your brain to expect quitting. It’s the same for procrastination, it’s another form of quitting just short term.

    This goes for ANYTHING!!

    Basically, you feel the feeling that lets you know it’s time to quit and then you quit.
    I help my clients recognize that feeling. This is what we do in Worthy. We address the feeling that says “hey it’s time to feel like crap, it’s time to feel defeated, it’s time to numb out and stuff my face with Oreos.”
    You have to feel the feeling to get past it. That’s the only way past it.
    Right now your brain is wired to react instinctually. It’s a habitual mindset you’ve created.
    What if you saw it for what it is and were able to overcome those feelings?

    If you could do that you’d be able to do anything you set your mind to because you know what to expect and you know how to overcome it.
    So, when you feel that sense of this is hard, this is uncomfortable, this is too much, why am I doing this, I can’t follow through – remember the promise you made to yourself. Know that you’re on the right path because tension and growth go hand in hand.
    This is exactly why Worthy is so life-changing! We anticipate what’s coming and we face the fears the doubts the worries head-on.

    I know that sounds terrifying and it would be doing it alone. Luckily for you, you have me as your mentor to guide you through the process, to stretch you, and push you until you breakthrough on the other side of that wall.

    We’ll address what’s important about you procrastinating, we’ll figure out what needs you have that aren’t being met and we’ll create a new game for your mind to play. One that’s filled with getting your needs met. And that can’t happen until you’re clear about what you want.

    If you’re ready to get clear about what you’re longing for then let’s talk! Here’s a link to my calendar, pick a day and time and we’ll see if this is the best option for you, we’ll uncover why you’re stuck, what you want and how to feel worthy of having all you long for.

    This is the real work guys…

    Your mindset isn’t all about positivity and happy happy happy.
    I’ve been hearing people say that coaches are all woo woo people and we think you need to be happy all the time and bubbly and full of life and energy.

    No. Just no.

    It’s not just about being happy and it’s not like I expect you to be freaking happy all the time. That’s not realistic.
    When I tell someone it’s all in their head and their mindset is what drives you I mean if you’re going into something expecting to fail then you will fail.

    If you’re going in expecting to fall on your face then you will.
    If you go in thinking you’re going to be epic and amazing at whatever it is you’re doing then you’ll be fucking amazing at it and rock it!

    You set your expectations and the universe delivers.

    The world doesn’t let things happen to you, it allows them to happen for you.
    Better yet, you’re winning the game you’re playing. I think I’ve mentioned this before.

    Yesterday was my daughter’s birthday. She turned the big 3! It hit my husband and me hard and I’m grateful for it. She’s been a rock in our lives, probably the rock.

    3 years ago yesterday we were at the hospital expecting this little girl into our lives 6 weeks early. We didn’t know a thing about parenting or what to really expect. It’s been a beautiful journey for all of us.

    Yesterday really sparked the need to SLOW DOWN. We, mainly me, spend our days hustling and bustling around here.

    We don’t just sit down and play with her as much as we could. Yesterday we were intentional about that. She was so excited that we were taking her to a place where she could run and play and be crazy and she LOVED that we were going to play with her.

    She kept asking us if that’s what we were doing like she didn’t believe us like there’s no way!

    It was so much fun. So much fun! She was a blast and actually listened (for the most part lol).

    This experience made it click that life is so precious. A lot of us are guilty of thinking we have do constantly do do do. We get rewarded for the busier we seem. The more we have on our plate. Ultimately we end up overcrowding our plate with BS stuff that doesn’t matter. It doesn’t love us at the end of the day. It doesn’t care about our well being. It’s not going to tell you sweet dreams at night.

    Those things don’t matter and yet we’ve taught ourselves to give it all this power so that we feel powerless.

    What if you got intentional with your time?
    What if you really focused on the important things?
    What are the important things and why are they important?
    What if you slow down and get present with yourself, with your kids, with your lover, with you?
    Remember the saying, “the turtle wins the race.” It holds true. If we’re constantly racing through life we don’t win, we lose.

    We lose time with our loved ones.
    We lose precious moments that slipped by because we weren’t paying attention.
    We lose track of time and before we know it we blink and our life has passed us by.
    What if you just live in the moment instead of always racing around trying to fix something you’ve done or racing through your day trying to get to the next level?

    All this extra BS you’re doing is probably busywork. What’s your real work? What’s the thing you’re doing all this BS busy work to avoid?

    Right now, you’re trying to be better. Up-leveled. Healthier. Free.
    But you’re stuck feeling like you have to do it just like every else does.
    You think you have to follow a strict plan or do it just like you’re friend at work because it’s working for her so it WILL work for you.
    But it’s not.

    Someone, something, inspired you to take action. She inspired you to ‘be better,’ make better choices, dress a certain way, style your hair a certain way.
    You see how others like her because of the choices she makes and how the actions she takes are working for her.
    You copy her because you want to feel that sense of love, safety, and belonging. You want to feel that you’re doing it right too.
    Finally.

    It’s like if only I can do those things and get those same results.
    Why do you turn that into trying to be HER? Instead of trying to be you and do what works for you and makes YOU feel good?
    She only lets you see what she wants you to see. Life is a filter when it’s lived through IG, FB, or through the gossip at work.
    We only see what’s allowed.
    So why do you strive to live a life that’s so perfectly put together on someone else’s terms?
    What if you lived on your terms?
    What if you’re finally in charge?
    What if you were a trailblazer and someone others looked up to because you weren’t doing it perfectly and exactly like everyone else?

    What if others admire you the way you currently are and love you for you rather than the copy cat you’re trying to be?
    They do.
    There are people in your life who are up close and there are those who watch from afar. They see your resilience, your persistence, your desire to be better and do better.
    They see you as a voice worth listening to.
    You’re not an echo. You’re a voice!
    People love you because you’re genuine, sincere, and always strive for better. Maybe once you were a perfectionist, that’s ok, we’ve all been there.
    You’re better than perfectionism.
    You’re REAL.
    You’re living life.

    Sometimes that showing up, changing, and being in charge is hard.
    THOSE hard things are what’s callusing you and building you up and making you stronger!

    Can you imagine how boring and mundane life would be if it always went according to plan?
    Creating a life you’re proud of is HARD. However, it’s those moments that callus you to make it easier the next time.
    The quote is a voice, not an echo struck a nerve with me today.
    I see how other people are afraid to live life to their fullest because it means going against what everyone else says.
    It triggers thoughts of “What if others judge me, criticize me, think I don’t know what i”m talking about.”
    Who cares!
    I’m a work in progress just like you! I’m learning how to find my voice. I’m building up my trust in myself when I relay the message that comes from within.
    Why do you try to be the echo instead of the voice?
    Maybe you’ve been told to be seen not heard.
    Maybe you’ve been told your thoughts don’t matter. That you’re a nobody who’s never going to amount to anything.
    Maybe you’re afraid to put yourself out there because the nay-sayers get louder.
    Maybe you’re afraid of what your spouse, kids, friends, or family will think of you if they knew the REAL you.
    Maybe you’re putting up a wall because life isn’t supposed to work for you and be rewarding.
    You’re currently following the path of least resistance and while that’s ok, is that really where you want to be?
    Do you want to keep echoing everyone else’s thoughts and actions?
    Or, do you want to step up and share what you really think?
    Do you want to FINALLY be a voice others can listen to and follow?
    Deep down you want to be a positive role model. Your want to show your kids that following your dreams is possible.

    That having it all is really possible.
    That won’t come by hitting the easy button.
    It’s scary transitioning from being the echo to being the voice. It’s an unknown space that causes fear.
    Being the voice isn’t about trying to be better than others, it’s about trying to be better than yourself.
    Better than you who yesterday didn’t feel like working out, that didn’t feel like choosing the water instead of the soda, that didn’t feel like speaking her truth.

    Every time you step up and be the voice, you grow.
    It gets easier and you’re callusing your mind for the next time.
    Every time you choose the harder, up-leveled choice you’ll feel some resistance (which is normal because you’re growing), you’ll be proud of yourself. And accomplishment and pride and courage and hell yeah I did it!
    You’ll feel on fire, all because you were the voice, not an echo.

    Too many people follow and copy others.
    Live your life the way YOU want it to be.
    With love,
    Becca, xoxo
