“Far from what I once was, but not yet what I am going to be.”
Hello everyone! My name is Collette and I am the creator of Body Compass Discovery!
I decided in 2010 that I wanted to take better care of myself and the person I was going to become. I am now over 30 and can say I am finally getting to know the best version of myself! I had so many close to me that wanted advice after they saw the change throughout the years. Helping yourself and your friends and family is a wonderful feeling, but being able to reach and connect with so many others is becoming a passion in my life. My blog is meant to help you get started and maintain the new and improved you!
I feel that achieving and maintaining a positive mindset, healthy intake and regular fitness routine will guide you toward the future you really want for yourself. Small changes in different aspects of your life can add up to huge results in your future. The reason I started this blog is to help others become the best version of themselves by sharing what worked for me. Each main category represents a different aspect of my life that I have improved on.
Fitness can be a priority for you, just like slacking is a habit. It’s all about re-training yourself. I am passionate about fitness and love creating my own workouts. You can find all of my own routines and free online challenges here. I try to do quick workouts that are effective in full body toning and cardio combinations. I do have everything from core to weight lifting, so no excuses!
This is where all of my recipes are! I have everything from smoothies to dinners to treats! I really try to focus on minimal ingredients and recipes that can be prepped in 10 minutes and cooked in about 30 minutes. Of course it varies, but the main point is they are healthy and not boring! I mostly blog gluten free, Whole30 and 21 Day Fix approved. I believe in everything in moderation so some are vegan, some paleo, some loaded with meat and cheese. Search through and find what works for you!
A lot of times we can change how we look and feel just by a simple natural solution. Here I go over ways that I mended my hair and bettered my skin plus oils I like to use at home. I’m always doing homemade treatments!
Our own minds can often restrict us most. In this section I talk about how to get out of your own head and stop holding yourself back. I discuss relationships, goal setting, personal development and general self improvement from the inside out. Your mind controls your actions and how you perceive everything. If you don’t learn to have power over your thoughts, you will lack control of your life.
This section of the blog is where I dive in to all of my favorite daily habits that I have established. I enjoy giving little tips and tricks in the kitchen, discussing products I have tried and fun activities you can try to stay healthy with our busy schedules.
Disclaimer: I am not a psychiatrist, nutritionist, therapist, fitness instructor, professional chef or anything like that…. I am simply a woman who took action to better herself. Please do not try any of the workouts that you feel you may not be able to handle, and take care to pay attention to ingredients in the recipes and all natural treatments before use or intake.
