Its been almost a year since I started this blog and my schooling to become an Integrative Nutrition Coach so I felt like it was time for an update. A year ago, I was excited to get started but also nervous about being able to effectively manage my full-time job, my responsibilities as a mom of 2 little ones, and school all at once. Looking back, that nervous feeling was a good thing since it drove me to sit down and carve out the time for the things that matter – one of which was school.
Last week, one of my school assignments was to reflect on what you have achieved and what you still want to achieve (with respect to becoming an Integrative Nutrition Coach) and I thought it would be great to share this assignment with all of you. I love that it starts with what you have accomplished, which gets you into the right mindset for goal setting (I talked about why this works in this post).
In the last year, I have had a lot of successes. I’ve studied diligently and passed all of the exams for school (by a wide margin – yeay), launched into practicing coaching skills with so many supportive friends and family members, completed all of the school requirements for graduation this May, and obtained my student coaching certification.
I started officially coaching some fabulous women in January of this year. The amount of progress they have made in just 3 months is absolutely amazing. They have given up sodas, started cooking most meals from home, beat sugar addictions, and made other amazing strides in their overall health. But the best thing about coaching is how much I love the work. There is something truly magical about watching another woman make breakthroughs on a regular basis.
Now to let you in on what’s coming over the next year. In June, I’ll be resuming initial health consultations for those who are interested (these are free, so if you’re looking for one drop me a message). Starting in July, I’ll be opening up a 6 month individual nutrition coaching program to 8 new and/or expecting moms. I can’t wait to watch these women achieve amazing life changes to better their health. I’m also working on an 8 week group coaching class that should be released by the end of the year.
In 2019, I’ll keep conducting the 6 month individual coaching sessions (with 10 spaces opening in January) and my 8 week group coaching class will open up. I’m looking forward to working one-on-one with people as well as the fun and dynamic learning environment that we can create through group coaching. It will be hard to top this past year, but I think we will!
