Michelle Is Living Well Featured Community Resource | Portland Photographer

February 01, 2017  •  1 Comment

As a mom, one of the biggest challenges we face is taking the time to take care of ourselves. We are not super hero’s as my husband likes to remind me. Our lives are busy, hectic and messy with children. We love them to the moon and back. So let’s take a moment for ourselves. It’s time to refresh in the new year.

Each week I plan to highlight a local business that will help you find time to relax and take care of you. These will be great for expectant moms, new moms or seasoned moms. These are all local businesses that I have made connections with in our community to help you realize the amazing services out there to help you be or not be super mom. Be sure to check in weekly because they are all incredible and different.

This week I am highlighting Michelle of Michelle Is Living Well. She is one of the most supportive women you will meet. She is there for you every step of the way. She is also a local mom, so she understands the struggles and rewards of motherhood. One thing most of us struggle with, well at least me, is prioritizing my health and fitness. I personally slacked for nearly three years before I decided to make real changes.

I asked Michelle to tell me a little bit about her business. She said ,"as a health and wellness coach, I connect a person's goals and well-being with tools and resources related to mind, body, and soul. The heart of our work together is in the community we have built since 2013 to help support and nurture your progress. I use Beachbody tools selectively to help women find their soulmate home workout and nutrition plan that works for them in the comfort of their own home with the support of our online community. Our private support and accountability groups start the first week of each month. (We also have monthly walk and talks in Portland for people to get together in person and make new friends!)"

I also wanted to know how her business could help expect, new and seasoned moms. She said, "when I was pregnant and then a new mom, I felt totally isolated and like taking care of my baby was the only thing I had to worry about. In the process, and through the support of new friends along the way, I learned that it's really about taking care of me first so I CAN take care of my kids and everything else I have to do. Now, as a coach, I not only help others personally but the tribe we've created is where the magic happens."

"I hope my clients would say that I lead with love first and foremost. My style is to nurture first, and sometimes give a little tough love to remind you of why you're working on yourself in the first place. There are a lot of options in the health and fitness realm, and nothing is a one-size-fits-all approach. I want you to find what works for you", Michelle tells me.

I also wanted to know something fun about her, so I asked her what is something unique about her. She told me she loves coffee, Disneyland, and peanut butter. And she has taught high school for almost 15 years now. She likes to build relationships that encourage and inspire her students and clients and that's what gets her out of bed in the mornings!
