Two years ago, I had a very unbalanced view point on fitness & food. I always felt like eating a certain way & working out 5 days a week was restricting. It was a task I had to do every day, I was telling myself no to certain foods that aren’t I entitled to eat if I want??? Life is hard, why make it harder by limiting myself from eating the cookie! But eventually, being sick became harder & more of an impediment to my life & what I wanted for myself than fitting in a 30 minute daily work out & skipping the soda.
Changing things up gave me the option to tackle my world, to get off the couch & be active. It stopped medical bills, antibiotics, doctor visits, being sick 3-6 months out of the year with bronchitis, strep, sinus infections, & other upper respiratory infections. Now, instead of cancelling plans because I’m sick, AGAIN, I have the freedom of health to do WHATEVER. I. WANT. I have the energy to get up on a Saturday to take 3 kids & our dog on a 5 mile hike. And while I’m there, I don’t have to think twice about carrying a 40 pound kid on my back so I can keep up with my other 2. Or, in even simpler terms, I have the energy to just go about my daily life & not feel lethargic.
Life with kids isn’t easy! I want to be able to keep up with them, to play with them, to show them that this world is big, beautiful & worth exploring. I promise, living this way is worth it. It’s FREEDOM. It’s POWER. It’s LIBERATING. Do not ever, ever, let anyone (that includes yourself) tell you that eating lean, clean & green or working out on a regular basis is something that keeps you from doing what you want or ties you to a schedule. It is a lie from the pits of hell trying to keep you from who you are meant to be in this life!
Fitness & whole food can open so many doors to so many realms of possibilities that right now you don’t even realize what you’re missing out on in life. This lifestyle change has made my life 1000% better the last 2 years & I don’t ever want to go back. I want it for you just as much as I want it for me. It feels good to FEEL GOOD. I promise you want to live this way if you aren’t already, you just don’t know it yet.
If I can do this, you can do this!! You are worth it! 🖤
