If this sounds familiar, you have landed here for a reason. Your answers are finally here.
Hi! I'm Rachel, and I support busy women in being more intentional in their lives through fitness, nutrition, and mindset to become The Happier Woman.
I used to get myself so worked up about every little detail of my life. I was so focused on what others thought of me that I lost sight of who I truly was.
I wanted everything, the marriage, the children, the house, the clothes, the perfect job, the perfect body....I thought I could control it all and I could make all of this reality and then I would be happy.After struggling for years to get pregnant, and finally becoming pregnant with twin boys we thought we had the answer. They were later diagnosed with TTTS and we lost them at 23 weeks. My whole world was turned upside down. My life I realized was not in my hands. I did not have the control that I thought I had, and the perfection I was seeking was not reality. We struggled again to get pregnant, but with lots of work with our naturopath we had our daughter, Kensie, and our son James.
We finally have what we always wanted. Motherhood, parenthood, it should be a breeze!
Transitioning into motherhood was not an easy one. I worked so hard to get here, so now what?
That was when I realized that I was working towards something outside of me to find happiness, instead of finding happiness right here, right now.
We can search and search for happiness in places outside of us, but until we look within, and love the person, the body, and the being that we are--we will always be searching.
Happiness comes from within.
Realizing this and changing the way I treated myself has been monumental, and I have never felt better in my body. When we work on our mind, our body will follow. I finally realized that the inner work was the missing piece to my training all along.
I have always been active, since I remember. I was never obese, but my weight always went up and down. I was always trying a new diet, and food ruled my life. I mean ruled my life. It was an obsession I couldn’t seem to shake. Even if I had will power to stay away from foods, it was still on my mind all the time. I was always worried about what I was going to eat next, and when I had a taste of food that was “off plan,” —forget it. I went down a spiral of uncontrollable eating.
That was until started to learned how to listen to the subtle signs of my own body and tune into what my body was truly hungry for.
It's possible, and I cannot wait to show you how.
Through one one coaching, and The Happier Woman Collective membership program I take moms from stressed out, and feeling like crap to finally looking at their day as a whole and intentionally aligning it with exactly how they want to own their day. Making choices in their day that feel good and give them energy.
Instead of tripping through their day and having no idea what it will bring, they start their day knowing exactly what they will do to take care of themselves while getting everything done.
My clients learn to find their happy again, and make it work for themselves and their families.
Their families' are number one to them, but without these life shifts they won't be able to show up as the mom or woman that they want to be.
Shifting to living a more mindful life will enable them to show up fully as a wife, a mom, a friend, and in their career, because success to us is being our best self in all areas of our life.
With fitness, nutrition, and mindset, we can have the body, the energy and the presence that we have longed for.
