Fitness Coach, Podcaster, Writer, Mum and #1 Supporter of Empowerment of Women over 40
I'm Jessica Cooke and I help women over 40 get fit, break free from unhealthy habits, dump diet-culture & unleash the legend inside!
For many years I really struggled to break free from diet culture and become fit and healthy.
I had many unhealthy habits that kept me trapped in a cycle of feeling sluggish, stressed out, tired and feeling bad about myself.
No matter how many times I promised myself I wouldn't, I’d end up on the couch most evenings after dinner, comfort eating. Trying to make myself feel better with food.
Alcohol used to be a big part of my life back then. At the weekends I used to drink way too much, which only made me feel ten times worse. and just desperate heading into Monday. I felt stuck like this for a long time. Restricting myself with food during the day and overeating at night time.
I was anxious, stressed out and found it really difficult to get consistent with any healthy habit for any length of time.
Can you relate to that too? Are you tired of feeling unfit and unhealthy?
After many years of calorie counting, dieting, weighing myself and pounding the payments, I realised I was looking for a solution in all the wrong places…
I’m now free, free from my unhealthy habits that were holding me back and making me feel so bad. I dropped three stone, became fit and healthy, and finally got to dump diet culture!
