Weight Loss Coach

While I “finish” up on my life coaching studies (I’ll never be finished because it’s a forever learning interest for me) I’ve finally found my path/area of study within. It took some bricks to whack me upside the head to gain those lightbulb “why didn’t I think of that before!?” moments, but I’m sure glad they came (I trusted they would in their own due time).

My Life Coaching practice will focus on Weight Loss Coaching & Motivational Coaching. This doesn’t mean I’ll be a trainer or a nutritionist (but I can help with pointers), it just means I’ll help my clients find their path in fitness, stick to it, over come hurdles & anxieties from the past, and future motivation lapses. I’ll assist my clients in finding ways they can love their bodies and themselves (which is an IMPORTANT first step), help local clients with motivation at the gym (I know how daunting and it can be), shopping at grocery stores (and what to look for — For further away clients who might be in other cities, states or countries we’ll go over this different through Skype, email, and/or phone calls), and how to eat from a menu when they go out.

I want to help deep down to the root of issues and I may need to add to my area of study a bit, so my question is:

(answer in a comment or send me an email at hello [at]

1. If you had a free life coaching/weight loss coaching session in 1 hour, what would you want your coach to help you overcome that’s putting a hinder in your weight loss/life plans? If you have no ideas, what would you be interested in learning to move forward in your goals or intentions in life?

2. Any blocks that you can see that stop you from keeping on your diet or fitness routine? (even if it’s “I’m just too tired to run after work”)

1 | It’s been a crazy busy week and a half. So much going on, a huge to do list, and me saying “I NEED A VACATION!!”, so I’ve been on a mini last minute one (before I pull out all my hair and eat cake). I’m starting a new training plan from my coach (his site can be found by looking at the banner on the right of this page), and I had requested more booty workouts because my butt needs more shape. Boy oh boy was I hopped up on craziness when I asked for that. This new plan makes me feel like I’ve never worked out a day in my life!
2 | I spent some quality time in Venice Beach with my little fur baby. He didn’t enjoy the outing. He’s such a hermit. I’ve created a hermit.
3 | I had my very last wedding to shoot this last weekend in the Bay Area, so I prepped all my meals for the 5 hour trip there, and 5 hours back. This is what my fast food looks like at 12am. Veggies and lean Turkey burger (with mustard and 0 calorie dill relish!)
4 | I also started my new meal plan this week which means I get to eat Zoodles, red meat and salsa. It’s like a healthy bowl of not-so-italian spaghetti!
5 | If you like healing stones (like me) and live in the LA area (or are visiting) you have to check out Spellbound Sky. By FAR the best stone place I’ve ever been. Super friendly and amazing prices! I got some orange calcite, blue apatite, peacock ore. So pretty.
6 | Me after killing my legs. I’m not looking forward to the next couple of days. I know I’ll need crutches.

Andrea Harbin - Gah. I’m so wanting to try those harem style sweatpants, but I feel like I’d look like a total dorkbag. I want them so bad, though!


I feel like with the fall weather brings a whole new set of happy thoughts and why not make a list about it again? I want you to take my ideas and run with them!

What would you put on your list? (It doesn’t have to be season related!)

homemade hot chocolate and marshmallows (part of a cheat meal!)  heart  leaf crunching  heart  cool mornings and warm days  heart  fireplaces and fire pits  heart  when lazy days and cloudy days happen on the same day  heart  cuddling up with a blanket and a loved one (or pup!) watching movies  heart  the smell of fireplaces in the air  heart  not dying of humidity and heat while training outside  heart  mittens  heart  warm showers  heart  the best holidays of the year! Halloween! Thanksgiving! Christmas!  heart  yoga pants (eh, they’re comfortable)  heart  pumpkin picking and then carving  heart  more excuses to have DIY crafty times  heart  halloween inspired events  heart  pumpkin infused food items  heart  shorter days (right now I like less sun, but the day after new years I’ll want warmer longer days again!)  heart  a new season of american horror story  heart  cuddling up in large amounts of comforters and duvets  heart  fall vegetables and fruit (YAY! APPLES!)
