Choose a life of wellness, not illness!
Live your life WELL!
Hi, I am Cari Beard and I am an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach. I have always had a passion for healthy living and helping others to feel their best. I have learned over the years, personally and through working with others, how much poor nutrition and health can prevent people from living their lives fully. Life is way too short to not feel good!
I have always been a bit of a health nut, but growing up there was a lot of mixed messages from media and marketing campaigns about how to be healthy and what healthy looked like. Reaching my goals of health and wellness was difficult at times due to eating the wrong foods and focusing on the wrong goals. What I realized after many years was that even though I had a basic foundation of eating healthy most of the time, that I was what is known as skinny fat. I was slim, but definitely not healthy.
One day I had a wake-up call in my life - my version of rock-bottom. I had started getting migraines, was battling with year-round allergies and sinus infections and my hormones seemed out of control! I knew deep down inside that I was not doing what I could to take care of myself through nutrition and exercise. I became so sick of my internal whining and finally decided to take back my life.
So, I made a decision and pledge to myself to live my best version of myself every single day. To eat foods that were good for me, to exercise & move my body every day and to live life authentically. This was not a diet or a phase, but a lifestyle change and I have never been healthier, happier or more confident inside and out!
What I have realized and accepted over time is that we all have our own struggles as life can be hard and challenging. We are all balancing so much these days! What I truly know is that life does not have to be this hard! Yes, we will all face different levels of stress in our lives. I know that if we take care of ourselves through eating REAL and whole foods, moving our bodies and loving ourselves, that we can better handle and recover from life's ups and downs.
If you are reading this, then you know deep down that there is a better way of living. I know that it can be overwhelming to change your life from the inside out. I also know that it's so much easier to do it with support than by yourself. That is what I am here for! I am here to support and guide you on your journey of wellness and I know that you can do it!
