... AND DISCO?
You want to make some changes, but are overwhelmed thinking about where to start.
You want to relax, but if one more person tells you just to take a bubble bath you want to tell them to screw off.
You know you should put on your oxygen mask first but, frankly, that is not realistic in your busy life ... yet, you're tired of feeling suffocated.
HEALTHY MOMS FIRST: YOUR MISSION
Tired of running on the hamster wheel of motherhood?
Your mission if you choose to accept it is to integrate small, easy to implement tweaks to your diet and routine each week so that after 8 weeks you are leaner, more energetic and wake up happier each morning.
WITH HEALTHY MOMS FIRST YOU WILL ...
Have more energy, even if you are busy and overwhelmed.
Reduce cravings, even if you're a sugar addict.
Save time, even if you feel like you don't have a spare minute in your day.
HEALTHY MOMS FIRST: THE SYSTEM
Like learning the steps in a dance, my Healthy Moms First system walks you through each step you need to take to increase your energy and add more time to your day (bell bottoms optional).
Instead of an unsustainable cleanse or detox, you eat real food that leaves you feeling satisfied and energized. You'll cut out sugar, refined carbs and alcohol for a period and then slowly reintroduce them in a sustainable way.
Then you integrate your new way of eating into your daily habits, tackle indulgences, time management, organizational systems, and other ways you can maintain your energy.
Can you still have a cupcake or a glass of wine? Sure! In fact, indulging ourselves is how we don't overindulge.

COACHING WITH MAYA IS PRICELESS:
Shifting gears from home to work was difficult and stressful at times, and Maya let me know my thoughts and feelings were valid. It might not sound like a major realization or validation, but it was to me.
Maya helped me to manage my time better and to adjust to an overall shift in mental perspective, which is what I gravely needed in order to achieve better work/life balance. I thoroughly enjoyed the questions she asked and the short written activities I engaged in.
Maya is very self-possessed, a quality I greatly admire, and spending quality time with someone who is sincerely interested in helping just YOU is priceless. As a working mom herself, she uniquely understood my perspective.

Frequently Asked Questions
+ Will I lose weight?
Quite possibly! Often when people switch to a clean eating diet with little to no processed food and temporarily give up sugar and alcohol they loose weight if they need to.
+ What diet do your meal plans follow?
The meal plans following classic clean eating principles by no processed foods, gluten-free, and low-to-no sugar.
The meal plans are what I call "flexible." Several recipes may contain meat but every recipe offers vegetarian and vegan alternatives.
Most weeks there are meal plans alternatives that are vegetarian/vegan.
I personally primarliy follow a plant-based diet but incorporate seafood and dairy sometimes and very occasionally will have meat.
+ Will the meal plans work for my whole family?
The meal plans and shopping lists contain breakfast and dinner for two adults and two children as well as lunch and snacks for two adults on weekdays and breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks for a family of four on the weekends. If you have other needs consider the V.I.P. option or add on a custom meal planning package.
+ What if I have a personal question I don't want to discuss in the group?
I've totally got you covered! Send me a quick email and I will respond with your answer. I am also known to do a quick voice recording when necessary to answer your question!
+ How much time does this program take each week?
You'll be engaging in practices to save you time each week and manage your stress. The practices take from 20 minutes to one hour.
What you won't be doing is watching long videos or reading lots of information! The info is there if you need it but Healthy Moms First is all about taking action!
+ What if I am not a good cook or don't like to cook?
The meal plans utilize leftovers and meals that can be made in 30 minutes or less. Consider the custom meal planning package if you want further help with meal planning and cooking.
+ What's up with the disco?
I have always loved all things vintage -- from ironic t-shirts to disco music and bell-bottom corduroys.
The disco represents the fun we are going to have together, that this work doesn't need to be too serious or too pastel.
+ What is your refund policy?
Due to the program design I do not offer a refund for Healthy Moms First.
WHY I CREATED
HEALTHY MOMS FIRST...
Two years ago I was stressed out. Sad and overwhelmed. I knew I had to make a change and I started working with a health coach. I cut out alcohol and sugar and started being more mindful about what I was eating and the affect it had on my body.
My coach had me get up a little earlier in the morning. Drink hot water with lemon. Meditate. Journal.
I was resistant at first. I didn't think I needed these things but I was tired. Tired of feeling unfocused, listless and impatient.
Over time I began to notice a difference. I lost weight and had more energy. I was happier and more focused.
But there was more. I was more patient as a mother, more filled with joy at little things and more present in my relationships.
Now, when I struggle, I have a support system and the confidence in myself I have the tools to make it through.
When I am eating well and taking care of myself, my energy is off the charts and I wake up happy and excited.
The best part is that these weren't huge changes, just little steps that I integrated into my life between all the other things I had to do.
I created Healthy Moms first to share those things so that you can feel this way too.
