Visions of Handstands Dance in Their Heads
Day 1! So excited to get rolling with this lovely lady and her health plan! As I said in a previous post, Adrienne is not new to health and fitness. This is an element of her life that she holds important and she has taken huge steps in the past couple of years to make it an even bigger priority. However, starting a new business took her attention away enough to where she decided she wanted a jump start. So, we had our initial consultation last Friday, and as you can see…we had some fun 🙂
During a typical consultation I go over health intake forms that I have the client fill out prior to the appointment. I then create a meal plan for them using an awesome program I have through my certification that allows me to input the client’s info so I can gauge what his/her basal metabolic rate is and what calorie level ought to be targeted in order for progress to be made. The best part is I get to customize the plan according to my specific recommendations for them and their needs, along with likes and dislikes. They receive a shopping list as well and I am able to specify their macro-nutrients in order to be more effective. LOVE. IT.
Adrienne planned to get started the Monday after our consultation. Included in her plan is a workout we’ll be doing together a couple of times a week (she also does hot yoga and I’ll give her an additional “assignment” to do one more day to round out her week of exercise). I am all for “anywhere workouts” that use just body weight, so that is what we will be focusing on and I am SO excited to get started!
Unfortunately Adrienne has been sick this past week and has not been able to start in on her workouts (so important to give your body the rest it needs when you’re sick!). HOWEVER…she’s been focusing on the principles surrounding her plan (eating clean, eating regularly, portion control) and has lost 4 pounds in just the first 4 days since she started (and only half-way started!)! So awesome!!!
In addition to all of this, we are busy planning my wedding reception for July. Holy wow…even when you’re doing something low key it’s AMAZING what all is involved in the details! I had a second meeting with Adrienne yesterday to touch base and see where we are at. Josh and I are doing a mix of traditional and very non-traditional at our reception. It’s so fun making it our own and I LOVE that Adrienne is the kind of consultant that lets you lead in terms of how you envision things, but she has all sorts of ideas and resources to support what you want and make it come alive!
Stay tuned for more of both of our journeys! <3
