Working with Amber as my Healthy Edge coach was a natural next step for me. I was ready to embark on a deeper dive in uncovering the beliefs and patterns of behavior that continued to keep me stuck. I knew that this was going to be a transformative process when I shared with Amber that I had a full schedule and wanted to wait until three months later. She lovingly, yet firmly, asked “What will be different with your life and schedule in three months?” She hit the “nail on the head” when she identified a pattern of “busy” that continued to keep me and my health on the bottom of my to-do list! I said “yes” to the partnership with Amber and have been set free in so many unexpected yet welcome ways!
I have found that “progress not perfection” has allowed me to make wise choices and be empowered to take ownership of my health journey from a creator stance rather than as a victim. I have uncovered unhealthy beliefs and patterns of behavior that I’ve had with me since my adolescent years, and have learned to lovingly embrace my inner child while making choices now as a wise, capable and resourceful adult. I am more aware of my physical body and the connection between my mind, body and spirit, allowing me to become more integrated and whole. I also learned that clean eating can be fast, easy and fun!
The basics that Amber teaches, the resources and recipes she provides, the encouragement and hand-holding she offered through some tough coaching calls, and the “one-liners” have all become sources of inspiration, challenge, discipline and support for me. I am forever grateful for Amber’s willingness to go to the “deep end” and for the continued healthy “me” that is emerging. I am continuing to leverage the information, insight and tools I have gained in working with Amber and look forward to finding my version of “Healthy Edge”. From here, anything is possible as I create, dream and become ALL that I am meant to be!
