Connect to Your Intuition and Find True Freedom + a Quick Exercise for you to Reconnect to your Soul and Take Intuitive Action
When you learn to listen to the voice of your soul, you find true freedom.
Close to nothing changed my life more than when I started tuning in to what my soul really wanted, what my body knew I needed, and what my heart truly longed for.
Take a moment to close your eyes, place your hand on your heart, take 3 deep breaths, and just listen.
Sometimes it helps to set an intention during this exercise or say out loud a few times; "Show me what I need right now" "Guide me to what I need now" or "Give me the strength to always know what I need, understand my body, and honor my soul".

[HOW I STOPPED BEING THE 'FAT GIRL' IN ONE SIMPLE STEP]
Easiest way to stop being the 'fat girl'? Stop identifying yourself as the 'fat girl' and start acknowledging yourself for who you REALLY are at your CORE.
Even if others don't rewrite their story or identification of you in their minds, you can redefine your identity in your own mind.
I was always the chubby one who ate all her food till she fell asleep, convinced my family to order more for themselves knowing they wouldn't finish it so I could eat more by finishing it 'for' them, only wore baggy shorts and t shirts because I was 'sporty' (even though it was because I was uncomfortable in everything else and submitted to the belief that I couldn't wear the same clothing as the 'skinny' girls), and and and and the list of my identifiers goes on....
While these were identities given to me and woven into my subconscious, they were also identities I CHOSE FOR MYSELF. I allowed them to dictate my actions because they were 'just the way I was' therefore 'this is how I can and should be'.
One day I decided to become someone else, have a new identity, write a new internal story, and I did this over, and over, and over again for years with little and big steps.
I made the decision to be someone else and embody an identity that I wanted to embody. I stopped letting these stories define me and influence my actions.
Now, I am the 'fit girl', the 'healthy one', the 'disciplined', the 'inspiring', the 'coach', the 'self-lover', the 'mindful', the 'well' one.
Had I never let go of the 'fat girl' story, I would have never been able to embody who I am, and always have been meant to become, and continue to grow through.
What story do you need/want to rewrite?

Before you call me crazy or doubt how amazing these are, hear me out. I love finding ways to make 'unhealthy' meals healthy and this one totally passes the test for healthy, easy, and yummy (arguably fun too!).
In competition prep, we don't get much variety and the diets are very clean. So, we have to get creative.
A few of the girls I know who are pro competitors, nationally qualified, or have been competing for awhile taught me this awesome breakfast routine and now it is my GO TO!
My go to breakfast:
"Hulk Waffles" You can change the amounts based on what you need but here is the recipe I use based on my needs, feel free to change it up and experiment as well! You might even add things like whole eggs, nuts, fruit, or dare I say? Chocolate!
Blend and pour in waffle maker and cook to perfection
I also decided to calculate the macros and calories for you based on the above recipe:
If you try these, I want to know what you think of them so make sure to email me or shoot me a message on social media to let me know your thoughts!

I'm in pain. My body aches. My foot feels like it's either got a stress fracture or tendinitis from having really tight calves because I'm doing a ton of cardio, and I'm still busy with school, work, and running my business.
The upside? I LOVE it all.
Even though it can be painful, mess with my mind, and make me want to cry there is no match for the fulfillment I feel knowing I've given everyday my all with PASSION and LOVE.
I grew up being taught "if a jobs worth doing, it's worth doing right" and I don't like doing anything that doesn't light my soul on fire.
Sometimes we have to do some grunt work to be able to fulfill the desires and pursuits of our soul but it is ALWAYS worth it. After all, it's all a part of the greater journey.
When you commit to putting in passion, purpose, love, and joy you'll receive the same back.
If you need some more help with living a life and creating a lifestyle that feels amazing for you and inspires passion to pulse within you then send me an email and let me know what your goals are then we can see if and how I can help you and decide together what program will be best.
I offer mindset mentoring, self love and confidence coaching, Well-being development, behavior change modification planning, and fitness and nutrition.

This is a great tool to use to evaluate where your life might be out of whack.
There are 7 Dimensions of Wellness and by keeping them balanced you will have a higher level of well-being.
Don't get me wrong, it can be really difficult to balance all dimensions (intellectual, occupational, physical, emotional, spiritual, social, and environmental) but if you can even so much as heighten your awareness about how each plays a role in your life, you'll begin making better choices to even the balance sheet.
In my book, "Believe your way to Badass" (you can find it on amazon), I walk you through the process of evaluating each dimension within your lifestyle and where you are at with it currently, where you'd like it to be, and why it's important/valuable for you to improve in each area.
You don't have to make this a big project, just think about it today.
Ask yourself; if I were to have total balance in my life, what would I need to change and why would that be valuable to me?
Asking yourself why it is important/valuable just allows you to connect an emotional driver to the change so it goes beyond 'just achieving greater wellbeing
Comment below 'I'm definitely trying this' so I know who gives it a go🙌🏻
Being on a journey of constant transformation can be challenging especially when your goal is to beat your old best self.
One of the most important things you can do for yourself when you see your body change (even if it's just Day to day changes like bloating) is embrace your body and fuel her with love and gratitude by acknowledging what she does for you and taking pride in how far you've come, even if you haven't achieved your goal yet.
This is a lifestyle, no use in hating on yourself for 99% of it while holding out for the 'best' of it.
One of my goals is to be able to do this and see abs everywhere but I was still obviously excited to love on my tummy for all the progress I've made and work I've put in.
Trust and ENJOY the process, you will get there, might as well make your goal to love every step of it. 💜
I have a lot to be proud of myself for with every passing day of this prep, but if there's one thing that stands out to me the most, that's different than my first competition, it's that I haven't hated on, compared, looked down on, or dissed my body throughout this whole prep.
Even if a thought popped in my mind of negativity I addressed it with ease and total genuine love.
I have loved myself and my body in every shape it's taken.
Self-love is making the difference everyday.
Self-love is allowing me to show up, fully, and commit to myself and my body everyday to bring my best to that stage and to this life.
Self-love keeps me on track and feeling good about every meal, every workout, and every thought passing through my mind.
Self-love is what inspires me to honor my goals, my vision, and my soul everyday.
You have a responsibility, everyday, to give love to your soul and to the body which houses it. The two are interdependent and without loving both, you cannot fully love one.
Self-love is the root of everything.
I want to guide more people on their self-love journeys with deep healing, soul connecting, reflection, mindfulness, rituals, and a healthy lifestyle.
I help people align inner work with physical results daily.
By Building More Than Just a Body you allow yourself to lead a healthy, freeing, and empowered lifestyle while also nurturing the depths of your soul so that your inner world can support your physical changes and your physical changes can radiate a beautiful, peaceful, loving, and clear inner world.
If you are interested in beginning a fitness journey that goes beyond surface level and truly embracing self-love, confidence, and mindset to support your fulfilling and totally empowering nutrition and exercise program then I want to hear from you.
It's the beginning of August, I have 3 spots left for 1:1 customized coaching with me and I would love to invite you to apply for more info. Just shoot me a message letting me know you are interested and we can chat about your goals and see what's right for you.

Only 3 hours ago I was curled up in a ball on the couch crying...
I was just feeling all the feels.
You know the ones that sometimes come out of no where.
I'd be lying if I said I haven't been riding a rollercoaster of emotions the past week or so.
My energy levels have been all over the place which I can equate to my weird sleeping patterns, intense workouts, and non stop school work.
Today it hit me.
Mind you I've been listening to my body still. Taking naps, going outside to just be, sitting and doing nothing, getting sucked into viral videos, avoiding social media, doing what feels good for me in the moment.
I hadn't taken the opportunity to just feeeeel.
I was masking really well but feeling I was not.
So I allowed myself to curl up into a ball and cry on the couch because I am human.
Then I evaluated myself and what I needed.
It was like I wanted to go to the gym to get my workout over with but I didn't want to go because I was still sore from my last leg day and it seemed neverending.
But I was hungry and going to the gym started sounding better and better as I imagined how good it'd feel to be done earlier than usual (usually I go to workout late at night) and come home to shower and get a nice restful evening.
So I ate my meal, got dressed (this was hard because pjs were my comfort at this moment), and drove myself to the gym.
When I got there I was foam rolling and felt every bruise on my body, every sore muscle, tight muscle, hurting joint, and fatigued body.
Once I started though, things started looking up.
Despite feeling like I might die in my workout there is always something super empowering about putting that work in and showing up for myself 100%.
I acknowledged myself for still pushing myself, challenging my limits, and doing the work.
What's even better is with every superset knocked out my mood began going up even though my body was definitely breaking limits.
Before I knew it it was already time for cardio. Only 10 minutes today!!
I frikkin went all in. Despite almost feeling like my legs were gunna give out, I smashed it.
My energy was higher, for the first time in a long time, my mood went up, it was like I could feel the endorphins pumping through me.
I even sang on the way home which was totally not my vibe on the way there.
I got home and filmed an absolutely KILLER video for my membership site members about releasing subconscious fears that could be holding them back from achieving their goals without them even knowing it.
I hopped in the shower and felt so refreshed.
I filled myself up with love. And for the first time, felt even more inspired to write a blog post. It's been too long. I'm committed to showing up 100% in everything I do and my creative energy hadn't been flowing the way it normally does but now it is and I felt compelled to write this post.
And I share this with you today, right now, because I want you to know that even if you don't think you can show up for yourself 100% on even your worst days, you absofrikkinloutely can. And when you do, you'll feel fulfilled and empowered by your commitment to yourself, your goals, and your growth.
Focus on Building More Than Just a Body and everything will fall into place. I promise.
Ps. I decided that If you want access to the video I mentioned I filmed about fear holding you back subconsciously from achieving your goals then just click here: https://celeste-rainsturk.clickfunnels.com/bmtjab-official-site-homepage 🤗
Normally I don't post stuff like this but I was tagged by followers who I didn't know and actually realized how even though I share SO much of my life, there's a lot of random things you guys don't know about me.
So here are 15 random things you probably didn't know about me:
1. I have been more places outside of the United States than inside.
2. I used to have a YouTube Channel for interior design and organizing from 8years old to about 11 or 12 because I used to want to do that for a living so I had my own business with 2 faithful customers - my parents lol.
3. I almost got kicked out of pre-k for biting kids and got in trouble in early elementary for being bossy.
4. I have a blue belt in ju jitsu and train weekly bc it's my fun hobby that pushes my limits.
5. I used to collect nesting dolls and coins.
6. I committed to play volleyball in college and dropped the summer of my last club volleyball season because I realized my heart was only in fitness and creating changes in others lives at this point that I couldn't do it anymore.
7. I could literally stare at the stars all night and never get tired of it.
8. I love art and specifically love pencil sketching.
9. I don't enjoy school or the education system yet I have this drive to get A's (even in classes unrelated to my major) anyways.
10. I switched from a Dietetics major to a Psychology major and plan to get different holistic nutrition and healing certs.
11. Despite how outgoing and willing to open up I am, I really can't stand large social gatherings and shy away from meeting new people or interacting with people a ton. I prefer to stay in.
12. I have to live near mountains for my sanity.
13. I can't stand the party scene especially not with people drinking, smoking, etc. it annoys me.
14. I told jokes for a talent show with a friend once.
15. Even though I'm all about healthy living I will admit my fav foods are actually mac n cheese, pizza, cookies, and chocolate (hmu after my show if you wanna donate some yumms to me).
Which one surprised you the most? Comment below ⬇️😂❤️
3 things you can do today to begin eating more intuitively:
1. Get rid of any and all things diets. Fads? Restriction? Books? Rules? Trash them all.
2. Consider your beliefs about food. Are they actually YOUR beliefs or did they come from someone or something else? Maybe a friend, magazine, t.v show, book, or crazy person? 😉
3. Connect with your body.
In order to listen to your intuition you need to be able to hear it.
If you've been disconnected from your body for most of your life, it could take some effort to reconnect.
There are many ways you can begin this process but let's do this first;
Try taking 3 deep belly breaths and set the intention that "I connect with my body on the deepest of levels and know what she needs, when she needs it, and why she needs it".
If you read this far, I gotta ask,
Are you struggling with emotional eating, yo-yo dieting, or living/eating intuitively while still trying to reach your healthiest, fittest, and best body goals?
Do you feel like you just haaaaveee to diet and limit your food intake and put yourself through hell to get the body you want?
If you are, then keep reading because I might have something cool for you.
I am looking for 3 more people who would like to bust through limiting beliefs, find food freedom, create a healthy lifestyle that feeeeels right, and connect with their body on a deep level.
If that's you, I want to open up the opportunity to spend 4, 6, 8, 12, or 24 weeks with me to achieve these goals.
How it works:
-1 call per week (30-60min)
-Action Steps given to you each week after the call to move you forward in your journey and progressing between each call. (This can include healing activities, journaling prompts, breathing rituals, affirmation creations, nutritional choices/guidance, body loving, self-care, meditations, and soooo much more)
-Daily access to me via text, messenger, and/or email for accountability, support, or Q&A.
This is for you if;
-you are tired of feeling trapped in your own body/skin
-you can't stand the ups and downs of your body composition
-you don't like the restriction that fad diets bring
-thinking about having to live by a rule book anymore makes you sick to your stomach
-you truly believe it is possible to achieve your goals without the crazy restriction, yoyo dieting, ridiculous rules, etc.
-you see the value in investing time, energy, effort, and money in yourself for life changing results that you can sustain and know will work for you.
This is not for you if:
-you are not willing to do anything which involves going within and shining some light on some very dark places.
-you don't think your eating habits have anything to do with what's going on inside your mind, heart, and soul.
-you find the thought of living with freedom around food repulsive and you'd rather have restriction and binge days.
-investing in yourself is scary, not worth it, and makes you feel selfish.
Seems like you're a good fit?

Ready to get this party started already?

1. Go to my CONTACT page
2. Fill in the form
3. Say 'hi' and tell me you want to take 1 of my 3 open spots.
