“I want more confidence but I don't want to lose weight.” I’ve been getting this in my inbox since announcing ‘Body Bloom’. The program is created to give you back your confidence if youre feeling stuck as a result of a major shift thats holding you back, in this case weight gain. That major shift for you might not be weight gain but you’re feeling stuck. The coaching program is individualised, while there is a Bloom framework, the process and journey is not the same for everyone. You don't have to lose 5kg but following the fitness, nutrition and lifestyle change component of the program will still bring alot of value to your life and will still support the confidence and ‘Bloom’ side of the program. That being said, enrollement is open and I'm looking for 8 committed women whose lack of confidence is holding them back due to weight gain and are ready to finally stop the dieting cycle, love their body and lose 8kg or more in the next 8 weeks. Start working on your Bloom transformation next week! Inbox or comment below “Tell me more” and I’d be happy to share the details! _ #progressnotperfection #createyourlife #soulsunday #growth #movingforward #girlbossmagic #highvibetribe #africanfitness #africanblogger #blackgirlfitness #metoo #metoomovement #lawofabundance #lifecoach #liveyourbestlife #womensempowerment #leadingladies #womenslifecoach #survivors #selflove #sexualabusesurvivor #africanwomanlifecoach #namibia #africa #afrofitness #loveyourself #yeswecan #africanfemales #futurefemales
