Rebels, I have an awesome guest on the show this week! Jaclyn Ricchio is an imperfect eating coach who helps casualties of Whole30 and other restrictive diets enjoy food again and live their lives to the fullest, as well as find joy in imperfect moving and running. Jaclyn is a certified health coach and avid runner as well, so I know you’re going to love her insights.
In Run Your Best Life, we’ve been talking about how perfectionism is a total motivation killer, so I am super pumped to introduce Jaclyn’s philosophy, which is also very close to ours here at Not Your Average Runner. We’re discussing Jaclyn’s background, how she has learned to be comfortable with imperfection, and how she coaches her clients to get through the same thought patterns that make it impossible to reach our goals.
Listen in on our conversation today as we take a deep dive into kinder self-talk and what makes you a “real” runner. Jaclyn’s concept of imperfect movement is awesome, and I hope this episode helps you realize that perfectionism isn’t the answer.
