Questions about Paige:

Q: What does your weekday schedule like?

I work with clients every-other Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. On these days, my schedule is:

On my non-coaching workweeks my schedule is super flexible. On these weeks, I work on:

  • Writing blog posts
  • Sending out my VIP Q+A newsletter (sign-up for my free 10-day course and you’ll get this too!)
  • Making videos for YouTube

Q: Where did you go to school?

I went to The Institute for Integrative Nutrition to train for Certified Holistic Health Coaching. With this Certification I work with women who want to heal their relationship to food and their bodies.

Food Questions:

Q: How much time do you spend preparing your food?

I really like to keep things simple in the kitchen. I usually don’t spend more than 15 minutes throwing something together. Sometimes 30-45… sometimes!

Q: Is your food cold by the time you eat?

Nope! I only take a couple of pictures and then sit down to eat. It usually takes me 30 seconds to snap a photo.

Q: What is your favorite flavor LARABAR?

Hands down Lemon Bar or Coconut Cream Pie. Peanut Butter Cookie, too! But, I’m a little weary of Larabars now ever since I realized they were making me bloated.

Q: How do you handle cravings while you have PMS?

I give into my sugar cravings in a way that feels calm and balanced. When you have permission to eat your favorite foods, you no longer want to eat everything in one sitting.

How do you keep track of your daily eats?

Q: I simply take photos on my camera and sometimes even upload them to the blog later that week (I share a lot of what I eat in my Instagram stories – @paigeschmidt)! It’s kinda fun to go back over my day and reflect on the yumminess I got to enjoy the day before.

Health Coaching Questions:

Q: How old are the women you work with?

I generally work with women between the ages of 20-35, but if you want to have a healthier relationship to food and your body and you’re outside of this age range, by no means should you let that stop you. I work with 18 year olds, 60 year olds, you name it.

Q: How do I know if coaching is right for me?

I offer a free consult for anyone who is interested in coaching and wants to learn if it’s right for them. Get more info on health coaching here.

Blogging Questions:

Q: I want to start a blog, where do I begin?

I like to encourage people to start at tumblr like I did! It’s the most simple way to get your feet in the water and decide what you’d like to blog about. Plus, you can gain a great following on tumblr.

If you’re in need of creative help, I LOVED working with Jen Carrington.

Q: How much time do you put into blogging with each post?

Each blog post takes me about an hour to an hour and a half, which is why I post about 2-3x per week. I also send a newsletter every other Thursday (you can sign-up for that at the bottom or top of this page!).

Q: What kind of camera do you use?

I have a Canon Rebel T6i and I love it! I use a 50mm lens for food photography. My iPhone 7 Plus also does the job anytime I’m out of the house!

Q: Who took the photos professional photos of you on your blog?

Either Asia, Allie, or Amanda! All three girls are my dear friends and I love them! If you want to know who took a specific photo of me, please email me at paige@paigeschmidt.com and ask. I’d be MORE than happy to share and direct you toward the right person.
