Betsy and I met in a networking/support group that we are both apart of on facebook for women entrepreneurs. When we first started the group which happened by chance, I had a great time checking out the other six or so ladies and seeing what they are up to in their lives and businesses. You will see all those ladies featured here (some all ready have been) soon
Betsy and I have a lot in common. Both life/nutrition/wellness coaches and both with a mission to help woman break the cycle of emotional eating and take back their empowerment to live happier, healthier, fuller lives. Betsy was trained in the Martha Beck Life Coaching program, is a lover of running, yoga and like me, a huge animal enthusiast :)

Tell me more about Betsy Fry coaching. What is your specialty, what do you love about coaching?
I am a Martha Beck trained life coach, which means that I work on helping people get rid of their negative thoughts in order to clear them up to live a more powerful life. I specialize in weight loss and body image coaching for successful women. What I love most about coaching is watching women transform before my eyes. They are able to drop their fears, insecurities and excuses and start living their best life within weeks of us working together.
I love your blog, Find Food Peace and your emphasis on breaking from emotional eating. What is a common theme amongst people’s emotional eating habits?
First off, thank you for the compliment! The most common underlying theme below emotional eating is the deep seeded thought “I am not worth it.” Women tend to give their everything to the world around them and then there is nothing left to give themselves, which leads them to think they are not worth the effort put into weight loss. Through coaching, they are able to release those thoughts and start making the investment into themselves.
What are your non-negotiables when it comes to healthy living?
My personal non-negotiables are not skipping workouts no matter what is going on in my life, getting an adequate amount of sleep and trying to stay away from processed foods.
What is your biggest accomplishment on your health journey?
Last year I worked out for 365 days straight and blogged about it here http://365daysofsweat.wordpress.com It was the most challenging task I have ever undertaken, but I learned that I am stronger than I think and can accomplish whatever I make my #1 priority.
I would love for you to share your best tip on staying healthy during the crazy busy summer months
The best tip to staying healthy is making yourself your #1 priority no matter what is going on in your life. If things are crazy busy for you, then just carve out 30 minutes of alone time to get in a run, a simple yoga flow or some meditation. Do whatever you can to show yourself love during this time and it will set you up for peace and success in every other realm of your life.
What is a Savoury Soul to you?
A Savoury Soul is a soul that is three-dimensional: mind, body and soul. The mind is cared for with peaceful thoughts, the body is deeply nourished from nutritious foods and loved to the core with regular exercise and the soul is taken care of daily with an individual’s spiritual practice.
