CERTIFIED TRIM HEALTHY MAMA LIFESTYLE COACH ... Find your trim with RunAmok Mama
UNIQUE COACHING EXPERIENCE
RunAmok Mama & offspring... On the wild side!
My THM Journey began in June of 2013 and I was soon asked to join the ranks of the official Admin Team. I was passionate about helping others discover the freedom and success I had found. Within a couple years, I'd logged thousands of hours overseeing the official Facebook groups (not an exaggeration) - providing me a unique opportunity to research and hone my knowledge.
In 2015, I was blessed to join Trim Healthy Mama as a Staff member, serving our ever-expanding membership as THM's "Community Assistant”! For the last 3 years, I have enjoyed the privilege of serving our online community, encouraging and instructing thousands of members toward success in their Trim Healthy Journeys!
Our Facebook groups offer incredible resources, but with our main board bursting with over 230,000 members, it has become increasingly difficult for members to receive the individualized attention our early members had. No doubt many personalities will thrive in the groups (this is our continued hope) but others find the distraction and chatter overwhelming - thus making the private Trim Healthy Mama Membership site a coveted haven. As a Certified Trim Healthy Mama Lifestyle Coach, I can offer you personalized instruction - without the distraction and confusion a public setting yields, thus making your learning curve short and sweet!
Weight-loss is a central focus for most newcomers, and definitely a part of the program, but I have to tell you the “non-scale victories” which go hand-in-hand with better nutrition are equally exciting... perhaps even more-so than seeing numbers drop on the scale!
Before I discovered Trim Healthy Mama, I was an obese, miserable “yo-yo” dieter - suffering from decades of health issues, including a serious thyroid condition. Chronic pain, chronic fatigue, and insomnia plagued me. My hormones were an absolute mess and mood swings were terrible. I loved my family, but rarely had the energy to be a wife or mama. I could not climb a flight of stairs or bend over to tie my shoes without wheezing... some days I could barely brush my hair.
Less than a year into my own Journey I had lost over 50 pounds! Astonishing, yes... but for me, more impressive than weight-loss alone, my chronic pain and fatigue were gone and in their place I'd found stamina and a desire to exercise. I started with walking around my driveway and could soon hike 8-10 miles, cross-country, with a heavy pack! Hiking is now one of my great loves, and I pine for the exertion, fresh air and views every day. Life is not without its ups and downs, but proper diet is the foundation of a healthy body.
THE RIGHT COACH
In addition to my THM experiences, I have years consulting in different fields and communicate clearly, both in written word as well as phone conversations; this allows me to effectively Coach most “makes and models”. I do find, however, instruction is most successful when the Coach/Client relationship shares some common-ground.
My instruction-style varies, depending upon the individual. “Cookie-cutters” only work great for... cookies! I take time to get to know each Client and sessions will be tuned to meet specific needs. I am skilled in menu-planning, shopping and recipe-conversions but my goal is to teach you these skills so you will not be reliant upon me long-term. For those who need it, "tough love” can be beneficial... but overall I will come alongside you offering encouragement, accountability, and motivation as we celebrate your forward progress!
