HI! I am Stephanie Pazniokas (pronounced "PAZ-KNEE-OH-KUSS") - founder of SJP Health & Wellness.
Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? Then you are in the right place.
Whether you like it or not YOU are the CEO (Chief Executive Officer) of your body - making the strategic decisions about how you spend your time and energy. You are the COO (Chief Operations Officer) of your body - responsible for quality materials and supplies and making sure things run smoothly. You are the CSO (Chief Scientific Officer) - responsible for the scientific and research operations, what works and doesn't - for YOU.
Navigating the Journey to Wellness
Welcome to SJP Health and Wellness, where your unique path to vibrant health begins. I want to take you on a journey of discovery, empowerment, and transformation as we unlock the secrets to becoming the boss of your own health.
From Pain to Power
But, as with any transformation, it all begins with pain. My journey of self-discovery brought me to the realization that I needed to change. And change I did - not just physically, but emotionally and mentally. I had to confront my self-worth, tied too tightly to my usefulness to others. It led to anxiety, stress, and a relentless desire to please everyone - I had to let that all go.
My Unconventional Path
My own journey to this point has been nothing short of a rollercoaster. Back in 2007, I found myself juggling a full-time job and motherhood, trying to meet the expectations of both worlds. It was a constant battle, and I was losing. I gained weight, developed high blood pressure, and felt like I was barely staying afloat. Life was a chaotic river, and I had no paddle. My health suffered, and I hit rock bottom.Then came an opportunity, a new job, a fresh start. It was here that I embarked on a path to rediscovering myself. A "biggest loser" contest in the office was my turning point. With the support of a caring neighbor and newfound determination, I started my journey towards better health. But it wasn't easy. I tried crash diets, extreme workouts, and endless internet searches, often hitting dead ends.
The Science of Self-Discovery
At the end of another “failure” (which now I recognize as just more learning on my part), I turned to what I knew. My background in science empowered me to experiment and delve into the intricacies of nutrition and wellness. I realized that there was no one-size-fits-all solution. Each of us is unique, and our path to wellness is equally distinctive. The “conventional wisdom” was not terribly wise.
A New Way Forward
Now, after nine years of dedicated study, training, and practice in nutrition, I've found freedom. I love the skin I'm in. I sleep well, I'm pain-free, and I'm living my dreams. I've learned to manage stress, keep my health on track, and live life on my terms without rigid rules.
Your Journey Starts Now
I don't want you to go through the long, hard way I did. That's why I'm here, offering you incredible programs that encapsulate everything I've learned about real, lasting lifestyle change. You don't have to be in pain any longer.
I'm here to guide you on a personalized journey to health. No cookie-cutter diets, no hunger pangs, no hours of grueling gym sessions (unless you love that).
Instead, I offer you a roadmap to total health designed specifically for you, right where you are.
Using my signature BOSS Mode Framework for behavioral change, I work with you to harness the power built into your brain (neuroplasticity). This is a scientifically-proven method to create a sustainable lifestyle transformation that is in alignment with who you are right now.
You get a coach - I'll be your guide and the one who walks with you on your journey into the next version of you - the you with energy, who feels good in their skin and believes in themselves - who knows that they are the boss.
Let's reclaim our health, our vitality, and our lives. Together, we can be the bosses of our own well-being, navigating life's twists and turns with energy and purpose.
Know this: You have never failed - you just learned what doesn’t work for you.
