On Togetherness.

emrace possibility - Lacy Young

I started Togetherness Tuesdays Drop In Group Coaching a month ago. My intention was to create an affordable option for those who want on-going coaching. It's $65 per month for a 1-hour call happens every Tuesday from 2 - 3 pm central. That's 4 - 5 calls per month so $13 - $16 per call. Crazy high value coaching deal. The idea has been rolling around in my heart + mind for so long and I hoped it would be well received. What's come out of our time together in just a month has been nothing short of miraculous. It's clear that what's happening is less a drop-in call and more a tribe. A community is forming and I find myself leaving each call with full body chills and feelings of WOAH that was g-o-o-d!

A few words from some of the group members:

"Two words. Greater Awareness!"

"I'm excited by how many veggies are in my life now!"

"Like you say it is spot coaching ... everyone gets what they need in that moment. We have seen some really profound break-thru's! C deciding that life is too short to not have the life she deserves. K learning to lovingly stand up to her family about raising her son. Both of those instances gave me chills! I have found that when I come into the call with something big bothering me we can talk it out and break it down into something small and manageable. I leave with an entirely different perspective. Love that!!! And, no matter what someone's issue is, at the base of it all is always to take care of ourselves ... primary food, secondary food, physical activity, sunshine. All the things that make us whole and happy."

"The idea of who do I want to be in this moment has stayed with me. I am so empowered that I get to choose!"

"I get new energy + inspiration when I talk to you. Thank you, Lacy!"

This is a come as you are, all hearts welcome kinda group. It's a share as much or as little as you want, this is a safe place kinda place. It's an opportunity to pause. There are 10,080 minutes in a week. This is the place where you set aside 60 of them just for you. To show up, be seen, listen, share, receive, grow + transform. This is a place to say that you're ready to see yourself with love. To embody the beauty that you are. To add in healthy practices (like green juice)! To release the extra weight (both physical + emotional).

LY-TOGETHERNESS-TUESDAYS-LOGO

Togetherness Tuesday is where you become conscious to compassion. To enthusiasm. To possibility.

If you're in need of regular + real support this is your tribe. I share practical tools and a whole lot of love. You'll gain knowledge + awareness. Sometimes we talk food. Sometimes we talk life, love, stress, children, marriage, work, play +++.

What kind of life do you want to create? What kinds of food do you want to fuel your body? What do you want your grocery cart + your heart to be full of?

This is the place where you will grow. Where you will learn to truly listen to your internal compass and make the decisions that are best for your life + body. If you're ready to expand your repertoire + remember that you're not alone in this journey please join us for Togetherness Tuesday!

I believe in Togetherness. I believe that uncertainty is really possibility! I believe in the power of what we can create together.

Together we are mighty! xo, Lacy

What are you hungry for?

eat-good-feel-good-look-good

Earlier this week a client said:

“I am not tasting the love that I’m looking for!”

STOP! STOP! I interrupted her. WRITE THAT DOWN RIGHT NOW! Holy crap, yes! YES!

She'd been eating out of longing for LOVE. She wasn't truly hungry for food. It was a pure, beautiful moment. That message came to her via a brownie. It didn't taste like what she hoped. And it didn't satisfy the hunger. While we were still on the phone she dumped her "candy closet" into the trash bin once and for all.

The work we do on food is about so much more than what you eat. I can tell you to eat something green, drink more water and get plenty of sleep but you already know all that stuff. The magic is connecting all the parts of your life that nourish or deplete you. The magic is in shining a light into those dark corners and saying out loud OMG I NEED LOVE NOT A BROWNIE! And then working together on ways to infuse more love into your life!

These are the moments that light me up from the inside and leave me floating after I hang up the phone.

Does this sound like you? Are you ready to illuminate your life and infuse it with love + healthy foods? Consider joining us for the next Group Health Coaching session!

This group is small, intimate, supportive and loving.

Do you want to be reminded that you’re not alone? Do you want to lose weight? Gain confidence? Do you want to feel healthy? Do you feel overwhelmed by all the contradictory diets out there? Are you tired all the time + want to get your spark back? Does balance feel unattainable? Or perhaps it’s just within your reach but you could use a boost! Are you ready to change your relationship with food?

Session starts Sept 3rd!

Dates: Sept 3, Sept 17, Oct 1, Oct 15, Oct 29, Nov 12 Time: Two times to choose from 12 PST or 6 PST Cost: Earlybird $349 until August 15

$399  after August 15

Here’s how it works:

In 3 months you will learn the Foundations of Food and receive the tools and support to change your relationship with food. The process is gentle and supportive. You’ll find what foods work best to achieve your goals and support your body. The groups are intentionally small and you can share as much or as little as you’d like.

In addition, you’ll also receive a 1:1 coaching session with me.

What’s the time involved?

We talk every other week for one hour from 12 - 1 PST OR  6pm-7pm PST There will be two groups running this round. Please say which time you're joining.

What others are saying:

If I had to describe in one word what I’ve taken away from my health coaching with Lacy, it would be: FREEDOM. Working with Lacy has been a momentous landmark in my personal health journey. Through her encouragement, acceptance and grace to help me identify my pitfalls, I’ve made serious progress not only looking better – but feeling better emotionally, physically and mentally. I’ve learned how to take better care of myself, and thus improve my overall heath. Besides the added bonus of looking and feeling better through lifestyle food and activity adjustments – health coaching with Lacy goes much deeper than counting and burning calories. Digging into the emotional space and learning how to love myself has been the highlight of my time with Lacy because it has brought incredible healing, acceptance and freedom into my life. - Kendra

Working with Lacy has changed the way I experience food and my body. Her strategic and effective approach was delivered with such loving compassion, patience and optimism that I always felt certain I would reach my personal goals around weight, health, fitness and HAPPINESS. (I’m well on my way! Thanks, Lacy!!) – Lizzy

Thank you for walking with me and the rest of this group down this path. I feel like I have a whole new world of food- primary and secondary – to explore and I am enjoying it. I do not feel a sense of deprivation, only education. I believe whole heartedly that coaching is a better investment of my time, money and efforts than anything I’ve done previously (and you name it, I’ve thrown money at it in the name of losing weight!) – Summer

I’m reminded that even the smallest achievement should be celebrated. I have lost 13 pounds since I started the coaching and my boyfriend has lost over 20!

Inquiring minds want to know... answering a few questions from FB this week.

what you want to know

Stephanie asked about healing foods for the kidneys...

Stephanie, Generally speaking regarding kidneys my absolute favorite way to introduce healing foods is through juice! It's delicious, concentrated nutrition that is easy to absorb and digest. Kidneys need plenty of water and water rich foods. Watermelon is the kidneys good friend! If you drink caffeine and/or alcohol make sure to drink a full glass of water for every drink that contains caffeine/ alcohol as those two alter kidney function.

A terrific juice blend for kidneys is:

1 small watermelon (I prefer to remove the rind but you may choose leave it on) 8 strawberries 1/2 pint raspberries 1 cucumber 1 carrot 1/2 bunch parsley

It's time.

heavy

It's time to stop dieting. It's time to stop binging.

It's time to finally loose the weight.

It's time to keep it off.

It's time to embrace all that is beautiful in you.

It's time to release that which you no longer need.

It's time to love yourself.

It's time to eat your greens.

It's time to open your heart.

It's time to get real.

It's time for Thriving Through the Holidays!

Top 10 Reasons to Join Group Coaching

white-bean-soup

White Bean Soup image credit: Lisa Thiele

1.     A Personal Support System

Group coaching gives you the opportunity to share your feelings with others and develop deeper connections, making your sessions more meaningful. Knowing you are not alone in your journey will help you develop the confidence to address your challenges and the motivation to succeed.

2.     Higher Likelihood of Achieving Goals

You’re much more likely to stick to your gym routine if you have a gym buddy, right? The same is true with group coaching. When individuals are part of a group, they procrastinate less, accomplish more, and reach their goals faster.

 3.     Benefit from Collective Wisdom

You’ll brainstorm solutions, open creativity channels, and uncover opportunities you may not have discovered working solo. Have you ever been in a study group where you’ve learned from a classmate who gets it? Other group members help you master new concepts like a pro!

 4.     Gain a New Perspective

When you work alone, you examine situations from one perspective – yours. But when you work in a group, you’re exposed to a variety of insights that empower you to see a situation from multiple angles and motivate you to develop new solutions. Ever get a precious nugget of advice from a really honest friend that you just couldn’t see on your own? It’s like that.

5.     A Great Value

Get the same quality coaching, but at a fraction of what individual coaching costs. Group coaching is a smart and affordable way to receive top-notch guidance.

6.     A Team Invested in Your Success

When you work in a group, the whole team celebrates your success. Just like when a hockey player scores a goal, resulting in a win for the entire team. In this case, no ice skates are required!

7.     Turn Work into Play

It’s more fun to go out to dinner with friends than by yourself, right? Working with a group is a social event that participants look forward to. You’ll join a close-knit group that is energizing, motivating and most of all – fun! Group members often become friends.

8.     Lacy's Curriculum + Lisa's Recipes

We love this work!  We are passionate about what we do and have developed an amazing curriculum with proven happy results.  Lisa's recipes are not only completely gorgeous but easy to follow with simple, widely accessible ingredients.  We've collaborated with many people through the years and never have we experienced such a mutually energizing and easy flowing co-work life!  Happy coaches = happy students!

9.     Support Boxes

We've never met anyone who didn't like swag! Our support boxes are filled with thoughtfully selected products to enhance your journey. You are very likely to find your new favorite _____ in there!

10.   Time is on your side!

The class start date has been moved from May 15 to May 29th so you still have time to sign up and join us!

 

Have a wonderful Monday! Lacy

Big Fun & Little Cameo

Lisa is always up to something fun.  I got to do a wee cameo in one of her most recent projects, a blogging behind the scenes for Intel with The Glitter Guide. You can see her full post and the chickpea salad recipe here.

We are enrolling for our next Group Health Coaching Level 1 session beginning May 15th!  We have some exciting support box sponsors Sprout Skincare + Purely Elizabeth (more to be announced soon) and this round we're adding in virtual cooking classes with Lisa!

I just got an inspiring email from a recent Group Health Coaching participant that said she has lost 16 lbs since starting our Group Program!  Her boyfriend has lost 20!  You can read more testimonials here.

We'd love for you to join us!
