You don’t have to struggle alone and you don’t have to struggle forever!
Much like anything, doing things on your own can often be tumultuous and trying
You might think “I have to learn on my own” or “I have to just figure it out” or “I don’t want anyone to know what I’m dealing with so I’ll just deal with it on my own”
But in reality, a good coach, mentor, program, or guide will support you in the process in such a way that you’re still learning
Notice how Rachel says with my support SHE was able to identify her emotional triggers
Sure I have a large part in the work we do, the process, resources, guidance, questions I ask, and action steps provided or agreed on
But at the end of the day, you, as the client, have to be willing to work at this every day
I so wish I could wave a magic wand and solve all the problems and troubles of your life
But what would the use be in that?
You need to learn, explore, understand, introspect, reflect, and apply
But you don’t need to go at it alone
You may not be able to see your blind spots or go straight to the source
I take pride in helping my clients to really go beyond surface level and support them in establishing new thoughts, beliefs, behaviors, and routines
If you’re tired of spinning your wheels, or you don’t even want to go down that rabbit hole, reach out!
We are in this together. Let’s work toward making peace with food and your body so you can get the most out of your efforts toward achieving your goals

BUILD MORE THAN JUST A BODY
I remember when Jana first started going through my 8 Day Free Food Relationship Coaching Series
She emailed me every day, with action taken from each part of the free program (it is quite in depth if you really get into it), and I provided her feedback each day as I promise to
By the end, we got on a little bonus call she had gifted herself and I told her she had already made so much progress and if she really wanted to do the Food Relationship Healing & Discovery 1:1 Coaching Program, her momentum would only continue
She told me she had actually been planning to do the program given she had just come out of her first competition season and had been listening to my Confessions of a Bikini Pro podcast and would hear me talk about the work I do!
She didn't realize that she had an unhealthy relationship with food because on prep she was on point!
But when she came out of her shows she realized she was falling back into old patterns which took her back to a scary time battling breast cancer and didn't want the relationship with food she never resolved to resurface after prep
Jana says, "...truth be told I didn't realize how much I needed it until I was in the middle of it."
It took going through this program to accept that your why can change and evolve with the season you are in and trying to cling to prep mode is only going to hurt her more as an athlete long term.
Jana realized that food was not inherently bad and if she gave herself the freedom to trust herself then she wouldn't sabotage herself!
She went from eating something off plan, saying screw it and leading to a binge or overeating, then punishment and then going into the same repetitive cycle but now she shares, "I am learning to meet that head-on instead of waiting for it to sabotage...I'm fixing it beforehand and it's given me confidence and self-control that I didn't know I had..."
Working with Jana was a pleasure because she stayed consistent. I knew she would dig deep, I knew she would commit to the work, and I knew the more she said yes to herself and her needs then the more progress she would make so I definitely pushed her with lots of questions, resources, and action steps
She even says, "You [Celeste] asked amazing questions, you helped me dig deep and not be afraid"
Many of my clients tell me they appreciate the depths I take them too. This is honestly because I am not there to tell you what to do or why things are happening all the time
Yes, the program has lots of psychoeducation
Yes, the program is full of resources and tools from me
Yes, there will be lots of questions answered, insight provided, and evidence based practices employed...but ultimately none of this is what creates success for my girls, it is them showing up every day even when it isn't 'perfect' and continuing even when they feel lost, stuck, helpless, scatterbrained...
Like Jana says, "Ultimately if we can't be happy with ourselves then we're really just not gonna be happy towards other people."
I am so happy to see Jana's growth and so grateful she trusted me on her journey so she could truly make the most of her first improvement season!
If you are looking for support and guidance with your relationship with food you can either take the path Jana took (enroll in my Free Series first) then learn about and apply for my Food Relationship Coaching Program
Or you can just jump straight into the program and take Jana's word for it ;)
If you have any questions, you are more than welcome to reach out to me and let me know what you are struggling with to see if and how I can help you. If I cannot help you then I will absolutely send you to someone who can and make sure you are taken care of.
Jana is also willing to answer any of your questions and I have lots of clients who are always willing to share their stories and open up about their experience with me, sometimes it is best to go straight to the source so I am happy to connect you if you can't find them through my client wins story highlights or tags on testimonials :)

Just a few pics of my girls rocking the #BUILDMORETHANJUSTABODY mission makes me soooo happy!!! 😭😍🤩
I love to surprise my clients and members with gifts that remind them of the work they’re committed to and doing!
There is power in knowing our path & I made a commitment to give more to my girls that can bring them back to that!
It can be easy to scrutinize when we look in the mirror but wearing something empowering has always helped me interrupt the negatives and remind myself of what I’m REALLY doing and I hoped for the same for them.
I love all these photos because these are real women all committed to their inner growth and development as well as their outer achievements.
We are EMPOWERED and there’s nothing more inspiring to me than seeing women totally embracing the journey to becoming their best selves.
Making peace with food, your body, and your goals comes with making peace with yourself, where you are, and with what’s required to grow!
Women who love themselves enough to say yes to going the extra mile are forces to be reckoned with.
I’m so honored to be part of their journeys and I am inspired by all my girls every day!
Results like this are typical for the clients who consciously commit to the work necessary day in and day out.
I am so proud of my clients and love seeing them conquer challenges they never thought they’d be able to get over.
You’re not doomed to a disordered relationship with food, negative body image, or loathing behavior patterns.
You can get through it and come out stronger.
This amazing client of mine was able to make peace after YEARS of struggling with it
She CHOSE to release it, committed to the necessary process, showed up every day, asked questions, applied herself, communicated, and made this a priority.

Part of my PTG process requires deep introspection.
While it can be a pain to take an x ray to Injury it’s necessary to see what’s really going on to then make sure the next best step is the most necessary and beneficial.
I’ll admit, sometimes it can feel like a guessing game. I work with my clients in the food relationship program intimately and because it’s a “short” program it’s intensive by nature.
In this process, there are bound to be ups and downs as we figure out what’s really going on, address it, tear it down, then start building again in trust, love, and safety
I value this process so much because it always leads to the desired (or beyond desired) outcomes.
Working with amazing women like Janet is so fulfilling because Of those moments when things start to “click” and it feels less and less like an uphill battle.
While there are plenty of opportunities to grow and improve, it is important to do so methodically and with intentional effort.
Had Janet not been open with herself, with me, or to the process she may not have uncovered her true needs.
By being willing to connect the dots with me, answer tough questions, look within, and consistently take action—she was able to change her reality.
It’s not always going to look how you expect it to because there’s usually things you aren’t present to yet.
But when you raise awareness, belief, trust, and attention to detail then you can capitalize on those breakthroughs with new habits, thoughts, beliefs, and behavior patterns.
Emotional eating is a common word thrown around and often not deeply considered for what it means.
We may be filling emotional voids, running from them, trying to control them, unsure how to address them, or even disconnected.
If you want to work through emotional eating, you must be willing to work through your emotions.
Thank you for celebrating Janet’s success with me! If you’re feeling inspired to start your journey to healing your relationship with food then visit www.celestial.fit/foodfreedom.
One of my amazing clients Jenna Hart and I were talking about her beliefs & associations with freedom and we were working to modify & redefine them to support her journey.
She eventually came to the conclusion...”Freedom doesn’t have to mean a Free For All” and I remember feeling this intense YESSSS pulse through me as I heard her acknowledge a new truth for herself.
FOOD FREEDOM DOESN’T HAVE TO MEAN:
“All in” mentality type changes
Cult-like covenants to uphold as though
You’re not allowed to be fitspo & body positive at the same time
Rapid weight gain
A forgotten gym membership
Loss of all your friends & followers who’ve reinforced how “inspiring” you are more when you’re lean
Or anything else you associate with it
BUT IT CAN MEAN:
Safer physiological & psychological state for long-term growth
Peaceful mindset around all foods anywhere
Empowering image of yourself as a WHOLE person & in every season
More adherence- more freedom = options = room to choose what you’re naturally inclined to go for = identity you love thrives
Loving & supportive community of others as you inspire them to see it really is possible to do both
Greater connection to your goals & programming as you enhance your why & align with your soul’s core values...
The possibilities really are endless when you allow them to be.
YOU are the only one who dictates your reality.
If you want to change the story you’re writing, you have to be comfortable with a plot twist.
Let’s work together to make new normals & #BUILDMORETHANJUSTABODY
You deserve peace with food, your body, & your goals.

I’m frequently asked if my food relationship healing & discovery coaching program can be done while following a prep diet, off season plan, or even gut health protocols.
The answer is YES.
I absolutely do NOT believe you need to give up your goals as a competitor or athlete or any physique goal in general to achieve peace with food & your body.
In fact, I’d argue with plenty of client stories to back it up that following my PTG process while on a plan will not just lead to greater adherence but more sustainability long term.
You do not have to give up your meal plan, macros, or any work you are doing with your coach to follow this program.
I created this with competitors in mind which means, I will not be stepping on you or your coach's toes.
I may make suggestions based on my expertise & experience, but I will never ‘require’ you to change anything about your meal plan or macros, that is up to your coach and you.
Just like I wouldn’t want a coach to do my job in supporting competitors with their mental health using psychology & personal development, I won’t be trying to do their job.
I go beyond surface level because it isn't so much about the food as it is why you are eating it or feeling the way you do about it.
In extreme cases, I may recommend you get in touch with a new coach or nutrition professional or discuss other possible approaches but most of the times it goes as Fran has described here!
I’m a competitor, I am an athlete, I invest in my coaching and plans and I take pride in following it.
I would not expect any different from the athletes I work with every day or from you
Don’t wait until after your prep, your off season, or your time with your coach
MAKE THE MOST of your commitments by addressing the darkness keeping you from optimal results.
Mental health is the prerequisite to sustainable & enjoyable long term results
This athlete is KILLING it still & I LOVE seeing her share her journey of aligning inner work with physical results.

I had some amazing client breakthroughs this week and recorded this video immediately because I wanted to share something I shared with her which is the incredible impact celebrating success early can have on our life.
Much like positive thinking and “manifesting” we bring the energy of the future version of us into the present moment.
But the difference here is that the early celebration acts as a service/transportation method to our goal attainment rather than a post-win celebration to support the continued habit.
After we achieve something it’s great to celebrate with something that will support us in continued effort and growth like new running shoes after x miles, a new journal after journaling daily for months, a day off, a massage...
But what if you celebrated as if it was already done?
This is something I use for business growth, fitness goals, and more.
Invest in your future self now.
Be so sure of yourself and your ability that you create no other option but to rise to the occasion.
Book your massage BEFORE your next training split begins so you are even more motivated to kill it in the gym.
Set up your new savings account NOW to encourage you to save.
Invest in a coach now so you can stop spinning your wheels and make the most of your program later...
See what we are doing?
We are expecting the result but we are also empowering ourselves to create it.
How will you use this tactic in your life?

When Madeline came to me she was feeling super lost. After years of bodybuilding and strict programming she found herself in a flurry of emotional eating, constantly going off plan, and feeling detached from her body and her choices.
When we started working together Madeline expressed to me that she wanted to be able to trust herself around food, make choices from an intuitive place, and move away from structured plans so she could truly honor her body with her eating choices.
Every individual I work with comes to me with a unique ideal relationship with food and I was so excited to support Madeline in working through her emotional eating behaviors, lack of awareness in her body and her choices, and support her in embracing the relationship of trust and understanding she wanted.
We focused a lot on the mealtime rituals of my program along with redefining beliefs that were no longer serving her from her past. What I admired most about working with Madeline was her organization and commitment to the program. Madeline fully immersed herself into the program from the get go and never made excuses. Because of this, we were able to dig deeper and accomplish a lot in 5 weeks.
I am so grateful for the work we did together and overjoyed to hear her express such kind words about our work and elation with where she is now. Nothing is impossible for the people who really really want something.
Madeline was tired of facing her darkness every day without the tools needed to see the light was coming. Now she has a huge toolbox of resources, new normal belief patterns, more love for her body, and a deeper connection to every decision she makes.
I have no doubt that Madeline will be successful moving forward as she continues to use what she has invested in equipping herself with. Madeline, Thank you for trusting me and inspiring others to take action with your story!
If you were inspired by Madeline's experiences and transformation and you are truly ready to let go of guilt, shame, and loss of control around food then visit www.celestial.fit/foodfreedom to learn more about my food relationship healing and discovery program (this is what Madeline was referring to) and apply now!
Once you click the link, go through the info, and apply I will reach out within 24 hours with some follow up questions to be absolutely sure I can help you. If I can, we will move forward with enrollment, if I cannot, I will refer you out / provide other resources.
Can't wait to see you create YOUR ideal relationship with food while kicking ass in your life, physique goals, and embracing your body.
