Love the idea of clean eating?
Natalie is starting a free 12 Days of Clean Eating Challenge over on her Facebook page! When you join the challenge, she’ll send you her Healthy Holiday Survival Guide to help get you through without the guilt and regret post-holidays. What better way to end the year and get a head start on a healthy new year??!
I’m Natalie and am a vegetarian/pescatarian/vegan depending on the day. I discovered the benefits of a plant-based diet about 5 years ago and haven’t looked back. Fitness and health have always been a big part of my life, especially since 8th grade. I was ridiculed in middle school for being chubby and made it a goal to enter high school with confidence by losing 10 pounds. I ended up losing 50 pounds just by eating healthy and exercising regularly. I actually started with my mom’s Slim in 6 video and still do the ab workout today! Little did I know Beachbody would have such an impact later in my life.
After being active all my life and playing sports through high school/college, I relocated to St. Louis. without knowing too many people, and far from family and friends. I felt a little… lost. My now coach, Lisa approached me and presented the Beachbody opportunity. I have found such strength and confidence after doing the 21 Day Fix program and training for a marathon, that I am finally feeling comfortable with myself and my goals.
That is the short version of my story, and I have created Fit ‘n Free Life to help you start or continue your journey to a fit life, free of body image struggles, confidence issues, and obviously the toxic things that go along with that. Nourishing our bodies with whole, healthy foods, I believe, is key to looking and feeling our best.
