Becoming Your Inner "That Mom"
So you want to be “That Mom.” She’s beautiful, talented and has a picture-perfect family. You may be jealous of her body and balanced life, but that’s a good thing. With a little online nutrition coaching, you can turn this envy into motivation to become the mom you’ve always wanted to be.
What’s Her Secret?
She rolls up in her spotless car and drops her well-groomed kids off in front of the school, handing them Pinterest-worthy lunches. Somehow, she manages to balance raising children, meal prep, a spotless house and a career while still looking well-rested. Not only that, she also finds time to workout and dress like a model every day.
Meanwhile, you left late, could barely find room for the car seat among the takeout containers and are feeding your kids granola bars on-the-go. Their shoes don’t match and you’re wearing your husband’s sweatpants. How does That Mom hold it together while you live like this?
Want to Know a Secret?
I’ve coached "That Mom" enough times to know that she is just as much of a mess as you. You’ve heard it before and I’ll tell you again: Instagram lies. You might not believe it’s true for "That Mom", but I’ve taken her measurements, and she is far from perfect.
No matter what your job is or what façade you’ve put on, during nutrition coaching you need to speak your (ugly) truths. The result? I’ve seen it all. As soon as the measuring tape comes out, even the most fitness-obsessed moms dissolve into a puddle of tears on the bathroom floor.
The Ugly Truth
You think That Mom can’t binge on Oreos, candies and Nutella when no one’s looking? Or her perfect life protects her from unpleasant experiences? She is just as insecure as you. Her crazy boss puts her down, her mom preferred her sister, her fiancé left her and she feels like she'll never be enough. That Mom is an emotional wreck.
Thick or thin, abs or jiggly stomach, fake eyelashes or raccoon eyes courtesy of yesterday’s mascara, I know one thing unites you all: your struggles. The truth is, "That Mom" doesn’t exist.
Become Your own version of “That Mom”
Reconsider Your Expectations
I have bad news and good news. The bad news? It’s not going to happen overnight. You’re going to need a lot of hard work and vulnerability. The good news is you can meet your goals! My nutrition coaching for moms will help you.
Find New ‘That Mom’ Inspiration
The “That Mom” you envy might not exist, but the put-together woman inside you is just waiting for you to tap into her. She’s there, so get inspired by your dreams, motivation and strengths.
Learn to Be OK with Being “Not OK”
Remember: progress not perfection. You will have “those days,” so all you can do is put your best foot forward. Beating yourself up is self-sabotage so be kind! Focus on being the best you instead of a perfect you.
For certain symptoms, you need to get to the root of your problems and learn to fight them, overcome them and stop them from taking over your life.
