This week's guest is Evelyn Levasseur! Evelyn is a transformation speaker, nutrition coach, certified group and personal trainer, and has a specialization in behavior change. She also has a BA in Psychology and a Master’s in Education. I'm so super excited to have her and you guys are truly in for a treat.
Evelyn is the owner of Evelyn LeVasseur Fitness, a company that focuses on helping busy, overwhelmed moms reach their body goals without dieting or deprivation. After almost 19 years of dieting on and off, Evelyn realized that focusing on food and exercise was just a band aid to the real issues that were bringing on weight gain. She teaches her clients to eat in a way that keeps their bodies healthy and feeling satisfied. No more restriction.
She wants every woman to know she can want to change her body and love it at the same time. Most importantly, Evelyn knows that if we want our children to grow to be strong, self-loving, and confident, we must be willing to live that for ourselves.
In today’s episode, we cover:
[00:11:58] We moms want the best for our kids. We want them to be who they are meant to be. But we teach them to shrink. We say you can be anything as long as you fit in this box. We teach them smaller is better.
[00:13:12] I was grateful for the relationship with my husband. I was grateful for these daughters I prayed for. I was grateful for my home. I was grateful for my work; that I love. But I was not grateful for me. I didn’t even put me in the equation.
[00:13:43] I had to learn, and I say this to myself all the time now, I am not just blessed. I am a blessing!
