If you are committed to really getting healthy this year, then you definitely want to listen to this entire interview. It is packed with so much great information to help you live a healthy and fulfilling life. I didn't even know that there were other colors of cauliflower until this interview. My guest today is D. Amaadi Coleman affectionately known as "The Belly Therapist".
Amaadi's journey as a wellness practitioner started at home, because movement was a must in her family. When she and her brother were young, their mother would wake them up before sunrise to bike or jog around the neighborhood before school. So, movement has always been a part of her life. Her mother made sure of it.
She added healthy nutrition habits to her movement practices in college while studying Spanish. There, Amaadi became a vegetarian and delved into researching food and how the body reacts to it. Combining the two were the building blocks for developing a body that felt efficient, healthy, and strong.
Amaadi is a mom to three sons, a NASM certified personal trainer, group exercise instructor, nutrition lifestylist, and holistic healing advocate. After naturally healing her own abdominal separation (diastasis), she became the first Black Tupler Technique® Trained Professional. Now, as the Belly Therapist™, she focuses on educating and supporting the natural healing of this condition among women postpartum. She also helps women celebrate their bodies while healing their bellies.

www.GoodMorningGwinnett.com Even though Melissa M. Proctor never played basketball, her dream as a child was to be the first female coach in the NBA. Your heart will sink and soar as you live through Melissa's trials and triumphs.

unconventional path has taken a number of twists and turns that has led to earning the position of Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for the Atlanta Hawks and State Farm Arena.
However, some would be surprised to learn that even at this stage of her career, Melissa still doesn't know what she wants to be when she grows up...and that's exactly how she wants it.

Throughout the pages, Melissa shares lessons learned, guiding principles, and a means of comfort for those not quite sure what to do next. She presents a powerful framework for defining "Guiding Principles" that anyone can use to help direct life decisions. With her laid-back style and down to earth attitude, Melissa offers the option of acceptance at a time when many are confused and hope when uncertainty distorts the light at the end of the tunnel.
