Welcome!!! My name is Brittany and I am the mommy behind Mommy Life Elevated!
I am the mother of 4 crazy kiddos, ranging in ages from 16-2. I currently live in Salt Lake City, Utah but I dream of the beach! I am an online Self-Love Coach and a Bellame Beauty Consultant.
I am also an Elevated Life Junkie, spiritual gangster, self-love fanatic, that has a passion for empowering women to live a life of purpose. I am dedicated to helping women find their inner love, their inner power by learning how to care for their entire selves.
I understand that life is busy – I mean I have 4 kids, a full-time job and two businesses but I also know how important it is to take care of your entire self.
I officially launched this business in 2018 and took a passion for health and wellness – Wellness is a complete integration of Body. Mind & Spirit – the realization that everything we do, think, feel, and believe has an effect on our state of well-being. Life is only as good as your Mindset.
I am nobody special, and I don’t mean that in a demeaning way. I truly do believe in my gifts and the experience that I have to offer. I am just a woman, a mother, a friend that will be turning 40 in a few weeks, on my own self-love journey.♡
I suffered from severe postpartum depression after having my fourth child. I weighed over 200 pounds, I was ashamed of myself, I talked badly to myself every single day. I made the excuses, I binged ate, (I think I have a peanut butter cup addiction sometimes.) lol 😉 I broke my self-promises, I gave up, I didn’t stick to any goals that I would make. I took weight-loss pills, I tried all the fad diets, nothing ever stuck because I was never truly dedicated to myself, and I definitely didn’t love myself.
One day I woke up, I was sick of giving up, I was sick of showing my kids that it was okay to give up. I was sick of showing them that it was okay to just do nothing about their issues and just expect life to somehow change on its own. I was seriously just disgusted with my life and I knew it was up to me to change.
Life isn’t about finding yourself its about creating yourself!
First, I started with my mental health. I started seeing a therapist and added meditation, and yoga back into my life. I also do personal development daily, I listen to books on Audible, I read, I journal, and listen to inspirational podcasts, and so many other things to fuel my brain and connect with my inner guide.
May your choices reflect your HOPES not your fears.
After I felt like I was coming out of my depressed mental state I started teaching myself about nutrition, clean eating, how to be mindful, stick within portions but not limiting my food. I also became a Certified Master Nutrition Coach. I LOVE food. I am a huge foodie, cutting out food is not something that I agree with or incorporate into my teachings. Don’t get me wrong, I have tried all sorts of fad diets like I stated before but are any of those diets sustainable for life? Don’t you come off of some of those diets and just eat all the things you gave up? Keto, for example, I agree it works, I did it for 3 months and I lost 45lbs, but Keto was created for a medical condition and is supposed to help the people that suffer from this condition. It is not something you can sustain throughout the rest of your life. Food is fuel, not comfort, not a reward, not motivation.
Eat to fuel your body not to feed your emotions.
After a few months, I had gotten to a point where I felt good mentally and the things I had incorporated back into my life were working and my nutrition was a lifestyle, I added in a workout routine and have now lost a total of 61bs. I am showing up for myself every single day, and showing my kids this example. I am able to cook them healthy meals that they LOVE! I am active and involved in their lives. There is still a lot of things I am working on. I will never be perfect but perfection isn’t the point. What I have to offer is my life experience, the fact that I have been there done that. I pass no judgments here, I promise I have been there too, whatever it is. I am dedicated to helping you achieve whatever your goals are, by showing you what worked for me and helping you find what will work best for you. The key is to find the things that LIGHT you up! Together we achieve so much more! If I can do this, you definitely can too, and with my help, my knowledge, your knowledge, we will be unstoppable.
