Effortless 3-Day Reset Program

You don’t wake up one morning feeling lousy.

Instead, you start noticing minor symptoms, often caused by silent inflammation. You chalk them up to getting older – and ignore. I’m Elizabeth from @PureSimpleWellness Holistic Health Coach and Emotional Eating Expert. I’m am honored to be here today to let you know that feeling crappy all the time is NOT normal! Unfortunately, those minor symptoms are your body giving you a message, whispering to you. Over time, if you don’t listen to these whispers, these minor symptoms become worse and your body starts screaming at you. Left untreated, this silent inflammation, can exacerbate your symptoms and cause disease.

Food intolerances or sensitivities can often be the cause of inflammation.

Do you have intermittent stomach pains, bloating and gas?

Is your skin not as clear as you would like or does more hair fall out than you’d like?

Do you experience fatigue, brain fog and/or headaches?

Many assume these are a normal part of aging, but I disagree! It’s often due to food sensitivities or gut issues.

Believe it or not, you can improve your gut health naturally – through diet and lifestyle choices. I truly believe that most of us want to be healthy for as long as we live, but sometimes we aren’t sure how to get there. It’s truly a journey. You didn’t get where you are overnight, so you can’t fix it overnight.

With the daily stresses of life, I used to turn to diet coke and pretzels as my ‘comfort food’.  I didn’t understand why I was tired, bloated and full of skin rashes all the time. Unfortunately, when I started feeling tired, I reached for another diet coke to give me the jolt I needed and the vicious circle continued!

When I finally started listening to my body, I realized that the chemicals in diet coke and the gluten in pretzels were causing my intermittent stomach pains, tiredness and skin rashes.  But I was addicted and honestly, I didn’t think I could ever live without diet coke and pretzels! I slowly started reducing my intake and replacing it with seltzer and healthier snack alternatives.  After about 3 months, I was no longer drinking diet coke or eating pretzels and my skin rashes, hives and stomach pains vanished.

Sometimes, it takes a huge wake up call for us to start listening to our bodies. I believe that this is how many of us end up suffering from chronic health symptoms. I’m not suggesting that a chronic illness is around the corner, but I am suggesting you take the time to listen to the ‘whispers’ of your body. Slowly decreasing my diet coke intake was very difficult, but following the baby step approach, I was successful. And now, when I look at the results I have achieved, it was well worth the short-term discomfort!

Are you ready to start listening to the murmurs of your own body? Do you want to learn how to improve your gut health naturally – through diet and lifestyle choices?

If so, join the Effortless 3-Day Reset Program. Food and coaching provided for 3 days, so all you need to do it make a commitment to yourself and give yourself permission to listen to what your body is telling you.

Katie is a passionate mover who was brought to Pilates through dance. After a professional dance career, Katie discovered her love of teaching-connecting the mind and body, and working with students of all ages and levels. Her appreciation and understanding of everyone’s ever changing body and needs only became greater as her own body went through pre and post natal stages, an experience which has helped Katie navigate problem solving, and bring a freshness to each session making them feel personal and specific to each body’s needs. Her sessions are full of flow and aim to challenge clients with a sense of comfort, and often a little humor, all of which she has brought to Pure Pilates since 2016. Katie thinks the gift of movement and self care is one of the best things one can do for overall wellness, and is thrilled to seek and fulfill milestones and goals with each of her clients. When she’s not at the studio, Katie is taking care of her three little humans- another job that also makes her smile, laugh, and challenges her on the daily.
Eighteen years ago I discovered my love for Pilates. After having my two children, I felt the need to move my body again. At the time I was living in North Carolina, and worked through many different exercise and training programs. I discovered Pilates, and instantly knew it was right for me. Forteen years later, and a move to New Jersey, I decided to share my love of Pilates with other people looking for some way to move their bodies. Pilates has also been a way for me to keep me strong and flexible to continue many activities. My family loves to be active, and I often find when we are all together (mostly vacations) our days consist of activity and movement such as hiking, kayaking, or skiing(more on this later). As I have gotten older I find it even more imperative now that I keep my body strong. Recently I was in a skiing accident that left me with many knee injuries and ultimately having to go into surgery. I found being able to do light Pilates a few weeks after surgery kept me sane and ultimately helped with recovery time. Pilates has not only helped me be able to keep up with my children, but has also provided me with a body that is able to function at peak performance. My approach to Pilates can be described in one, simple word: movement. Movement can help you, both physically and mentally. Movement, and Pilates, is ultimately about self care. Having a built in time to focus on your body and movement can help relieve yourself of feeling tired, anxious, and stressed. Movement awakens you. Even after one session you can leave feeling calmer and energized.
Enjoyment of life through movement is a vital part of Kathy’s philosophy. When not in the studio she leads an active lifestyle trail running, cycling, skiing and hiking. She also loves connecting with people while traveling with family and friends. One of her favorite cycling trips was riding along the coast of northern California. Learning new things and sharing knowledge is also important to Kathy. She has a passion for food, likes to cook for her family and experiment with new recipes. She is currently trying to achieve the perfect pizza. She is also an avid reader of historical fiction and biographies. Her latest endeavor is learning to play golf.
