“I was interested in hiring Eleanor as a health coach because I like to support fellow parents with their businesses and I was attracted to her approach, avoiding hard sell tactics or pushing products. I was experiencing all over body pain, weight gain, anxiety and depression and I felt it was time to take a look at my lifestyle and diet choices.
The most inspiring, life changing part of this experience was realizing that small choices and changes made the biggest difference and that it was my own fear of those changes and negative projection that kept me from taking the action. Eleanor helped me see through our one on one discussions what my mental blocks were and how to overcome them by keeping an open mind to the possibility of embracing a change that was good for me. As a full time working mother I was consistently putting myself last not realizing the impact it was having on my health and psychology.
If I had to write 3 tangible, measurable changes in myself and my life that have happened since working with Eleanor, they would be:
1. I went from drinking maybe 20-30 oz of water a day to 80-100 oz. The was the one thing I thought would be the hardest change but it ended up being the easiest with Eleanor's help.
2. I discovered I have an allergy to gluten and dairy and saw clear distinctive signs of how those ingredients were hurting my body, causing inflammation and pain.
3. I now spend at least one hour a week by myself, rejuvenating my mind and body with activities I love and I don't feel guilty or put myself last. I have actively engaged my children in participating with choosing their foods for the week by going grocery shopping with me and making their own lunches. I have let go of many areas of control - allowing my 9 year old son more independence and freedom and asking for more responsibilities from my 13 year old daughter.
Eleanor changed my mindset towards health. Working with Eleanor was a great experience. The thing I most valued was her ability to make the changes my own and to work with what I could do within my busy schedule with out deprivation or causing more stress. She helped me work IN my changes so they have become part of my routine and way of life.
Her 6 week package was worth the money!
I would refer Eleanor as a health coach because of all the things I discovered about myself and the tangible changes I made to improve my health. My discovery of my gluten allergy, my reduction in inflammation and pain in my abdomen, the feeling I have when I put my pants on and they fit, the full feeling I have after I spend my time alone, is life changing. This coaching was just what I needed to point my life in a positive direction.”
