Hello! My name is Elizabeth, but you probably already knew that. Here’s a bit about me, if there’s anything else you’d like to know feel free to comment – I love hearing from my readers 🙂
I am a Health Coach for women, and I use a very non-traditional approach. I believe fitness is about more than being skinny, it’s about being strong and fit for life. I believe that workouts should be anything but boring, that there should be plenty of variety and that each exercise should suit you and your specific needs. I believe eating healthy should be a pleasure and not an obsession. It should be about eating good stuff, not about not eating bad stuff. I believe the focus should be on the number of the weight you lift going up, not the number on the scale going down. And most of all, I believe your health and fitness plan should be as unique as you are, because what fun is there in fitting the mold anyways?
I’m a writer. Ever since I was little, I’ve loved to write. Call me a romantic, but I think writing is a beautiful art. I’m also one of those weirdos who has a hard time putting thoughts into words verbally, but I love turning those same thoughts into written words. So naturally, blogging is one of my favorite parts of my business, since I get to write about all the topics I love and help others through my written words.
I’m too nerdy for non-nerdy people and not nerdy enough for true nerds. I’m a huge fan of all things Tolkien, Star Wars, Marvel Universe, and Narnia, sometimes to the point of obsession (just look at some of my Pinterest boards). So whether that makes me a true nerd or not, there’s that.
I’m an introvert who loves people. I know, I know, that sounds like a contradiction. I personally think that the whole “introvert vs extrovert” trend in recent history has turned into kind of a ridiculous mess. Introversion has become an excuse for being antisocial, while extroverts tend to be seen as frivolous or petty. For me personally, being an introvert just means I need time alone to recharge, and I like quieter, more reflective activities. That’s it. I still love and need people. If I can’t help and interact with people on a regular basis, I tend to feel empty and useless. If that doesn’t make sense, we’ll just say I’m complicated and leave it at that 😉 Or google the INFJ personality type and come to your own conclusion.
I’m a Christian. Unfortunately, there are a lot of different ideas about Christianity these days, so I’d like to clarify what it means to me. For me, Christianity is about my worldview, my relationship with God, and my relationship with others. It means I believe Jesus Christ is the Messiah. It means I have a real relationship with God, who loves and values me unconditionally, and that He has called me to love others with that same love. It’s as simple as that. Don’t worry, if you decide to hire me as your coach, I’m not going to get all preachy with you, but my faith is a huge part of my life so it wouldn’t be right for me not to mention it on my “About Me” page. [Note: If you are a Christian and would like us to incorporate prayer and spiritual encouragement into our sessions, I’d be happy to make that happen.]
